    I recommend RedPill-CM7. It's CM7 with Dorian's magic touches.
    Martin's Android devices:
    - Samsung Galaxy S3 with Quantum (CM 10.2 by PwnCakes193)
    - Asus Transformer TF101 with No-Name (CM 10.2 by josteink)
    - Motorola Atrix 4G with CM 7.2

    I looked at it but I dont really like ics, which was why I wanted to go with CM7.
    Anyways, before I decide, what steps do I have to take in recovery mode before flashing anything?
    like do i have to make a backup in CWM?
    And before flashing the rom, what do ii have to wipe(I know you have to wipe some cache, I just dont exactly know where and how)?

    Never hurts to do a backup. Its pretty self explanatory through the Backup/Restore menu in CWM (I don't have the exact steps without CWM in front of me). It is always suggested to wipe data/cache before installing a ROM. Do a factor reset/data wipe, a delete cache, and advanced>clear dalvik cache, before installing a ROM.

    ok got it.
    I've decided to flash CM7.
    the instructions(here: * Official CM7 for Atrix Stable only (No Nightly )* Atrix CM Ba2tF RELEASED!! - xda-developers) say to install CM7 first, and then clear the cache, etc. Should I do that, or clear cache, etc first? I'm guessing that I should follow the instructions in the link, but just asking to be 100% sure.

    It really never hurts to do both. In reality, ROM installations clear data/cache in the process..but sometimes a thorough job isn't done. The worst that will happen is a boot loop (which is fixed by wiping data) or odd glitches (which can be fixed by wiping data).

    Yea, it just takes time..better safe then sorry. But on the flip side, consequences aren't too bad. I honestly flashed too ROMs and was too lazy to wipe every time. Id say 1/10 times I installed without wiping id have a weird glitch..was able to boot into recovery and wipe, all was good.
