Just another amazing rom from a very dedicated member of xda
loved the interface esp iron man :P
signal strength is definitely awesome
sound is loud
good scores on benchmarks but not like SLD
maybe you should have included some aosp libs (long pressing toggles do not guide me to their main settings anymore - becomes inconvenient)
overall amazed with the rom
