EDIT- seems that user did the above already. Maybe it's a bug in Resurrection Remix?
WTH is this advertising in my notifications? It's not the first time either, how do I stop them from coming?

Looking for a newer ICS rom to install. What do you guys recommend? Will do a fresh install.
Currently have the following installed:
Thanks, have found that "Personal Call and Voice Recorder" and "Ringdroid" are enabled to push adverts to my notification bar. Have now blocked both with "LBE Privacy Guard" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...JpdHkubGl0ZSJd)
OK so I finally took the leap to root and install a ROM to replace my bloated stock. I decided to go with CM9. I think that the CM9 has a great interface, really looks awesome in my opinion, I think that is what ICS is supposed to look like - the one from Vodacom just looks a lot like GB. The battery life improved tremendously, maybe doubled, compared to the stock from Vodacom. Screen even seems more responsive.
Now it was not all smooth sailing. I experienced problems with Swiftkey 3 crashing all the time, I basically can not use it on CM9. Not sure if this has always been an issue. Just quite surprised that a popular app like that doesn't function properly. The other problem I had was SMS. I don't SMS a lot so I only realised this, this morning. What happened was that when I tried to SMS it would not go through and I would experience network loss which forced me to reboot.
So I am on my next adventure in search of another ROM. I'm gonna browse around here and see what other people are using. If you read this and have any recommendations, I'd really appreciate that.
CM9 is still not fully stable, but it is close.
The SMS issue- either sounds like an overwritten efs folder or you just need to update the SMS service centre number. If you search this thread, both should be available (sorry, just had lunch so I'm lazy ).
In terms of other ROM's- so many to choose from. But for something different, try MIUI, and change the launcher. I would also recommend the FoxHound ROM- stable, good battery life and performance.
You can find them here.
SK works on CM9. Just uninstall it completely and reinstall. I use Titanium Backup when I uninstall. You can then get rid of data that might prevent proper operation of apps. All roms are not created equal. So with some apps you will find that a complte reinstall is required.
