I actually made this for my personal use, but looking at the best results, thought I should share with all.
I am still learning and will do more complex things, experiments, tweaks and mods as and how I get time.
**NOTE 3**
BTW SLD was ported from Celkon's rom released in September 2013 and
XLD is ported from same exact model rom released in March 2014, much updated and more features.
Its an obvious upgrade everyone does after long time. Not a rocket science.

Just another amazing rom from a very dedicated member of xda
superb ROM
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
KEEP UP THE WORK ur an AWESOME DEV.
