    My MI2 is a little bit slow and the battery life isn't as good as it was 8 months ago. Besides, my GPS suddenly stopped working properly. So, I've decided to wipe my phone and to install a Android 4.4.4 based ROM... My question is:

    Which Android 4.4.4 based rom to choose? And why?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nobody can't tell you what ROM you have to flash on your phone.
    You have to try and find the one you like most.
    Obviously if you like a lot MIUI you have to try WIUI.
    You could activate True Dual Boot and flash a "stable" ROM on one of systems and try other ROMS on the other system (but you can't do that with XperianPro's Cyanogen 'cause it doesn't support TDB).

    Man, I have some noob doubts.. could you help me?
    I'll probally try Wiui ROM, what do I have to do? Step by step.

    Until now I'm using the ROMS posted here, in the weekly releases. If I want to move to WIUI, I have to wipe my phone, right? How should I do that? And what's ClockworkMod Recovery?

    Yes, if you jump from different ROM you need to wipe your phone (wipe data on recovery).
    If you flash WIUI you can use the Backup app of MIUI to save your datas and apps and restore it on WIUI.
    To do the wipes (data, cache, davik cache etc.) or formats (system, data etc.) you have to flash the ClockWorkMod that is an alternative recovery that allows you to a lot of things (flash ROMS, do full backups (Nandroid backup), manage both systems, enable TrueDualBoot etc.).

    You have to follow the guides on the open posts of CWM and WIUI KK.

    My view on all 4.4.4 ROMS:

    1)Stability + Battery Life -------> AOSP Ivan
    2)Stability + Battery Life + ROM Features + Official Updates ------------> Official Mokee
    3)Stability + ROM Features + Performance + Battery life(Not as good as above) -----------> Moonlight's LS and Carbon
    4)ROM Features + Performance + Kernel Features -------------------> XperianPro CM
    (You will have some force closes and battery life is not that good compared to above 3)
    5)ROM Features + Performance + Official Updates--------------> Official CM
    6)Love MiUi --------------> Wajk Wiui (performance is not that good)

    Performance* = Speed and smoothness
    ROM Features* = customization of ROM viz., Active Display, Hover etc
    Kernel Features* = customizatio of Kernel viz., Under-volt over-clocking etc
    Stability* = No random reboots, no force closes, no undefined behaviour
    Battery life* = Depends on usage

    Choose Ivan's Code_aurora latest AOSP build. It is good in terms of Battery Life & Stability.

    If you are not convinced with my answer, have a look at the following pics.

    Hope this will make your decision easier on which ROM to choose... I am very happy with this ROM. I am using 3000mAh Battery now.

    I think it isn't! It is the default set up by Xiaomi, and you can not change.

    There is you can use parted when in CWM,its fast and simple and you can allocate space to any from any partition you want.

    Than you have to figure out, what is draining your battery.

    Screenshot_2014-09-11-12-35-17.pngScreenshot_2014-09-11-12-35-07.png

    I have 5hrs on screen with standard battery.
