Default [ROM] [toro+] The Orca Project by Drew Garen (anyone tried this?)

Seems pretty legit so far, stable and plenty of options. Didn't see a Dev thread so didn't know who was running this ROM. Its available on goo manager under drewgaren. If the Dev wants this gone just let me know! Loving the ROM so far though!

Drew doesnt exactly have the best rapport around these parts lol, good dev yes but many would consider him shady for multiple reasons.

I tried his ROM a couple weeks ago. It wouldn't even boot. It was the updated one in the toro section on goo.im. the only time I don't have a ROM boot is when there's something wrong with it.

Tried out the newest one. Booted fine. Seemed nice. A lot of options. Went back to PA tho. Try it out.

I just can't seem to stay on PA, the pie feature is cool but doesn't seem to work right all the time

Yeah everyone says PA.. Honestly I think the orca ROM can do what PA does then more.. I been running it since the update and my old prob is the ram usage...

Edit: also has anyone else tried that awesome auto hide navbar? I like it more then pie.. IMO its more responsive.. And pie just took to long open its nice eye candy though.

Just loaded this on.
I have to say I like a lot of the features like auto hide navbar, custom colors in messaging, phablet mode, etc.
I tried PA for the PIE mode, but wasn't impressed enough to keep it loaded.
I'll let it bake for a few days and see if I still like it at the end of the weekend.
