Care substantiate such a claim which has likely deterred a bunch of people from trying this rom?

Out of all the 4.2.2 roms out right now, Orca Project in my opinion is at the top right now. I've had no problems with it, not one crash, and it's very efficient with great battery life, especially given how many customizations it's loaded with. Best of all I never had to get off my pink unicorn at TWRP riding into Orca Project.

Edit: actually I just realized this ROM looks a lot like carbonrom

Well, he is known for taking other people's work and crediting as his own(supposedly). I know he has done some good work specially in the nexus s/ ics days but he did have some problems on here.

Taking somebody's work without giving credit is just morally wrong, but doesn't mean its a good clean ROM. I was thinking like he was virus, credit card logging shady.

Oh and OP I'm not one of those message board cops but Drew posted his own thread in development for toro plus.

Yeah I noticed that too. Decided to switch to ROMs and carbonrom seems to have pretty much all the same features.

Sourcery has all these features and more. I'm not taking away from any other ROM out there. Built in.

DONATE TO ME
Back in the DX days he was known to take other devs work and label it as his own. That being said orca runs nice but is riddled with scripts that dont work, are incomplete, conflicting, and proven tweaks to have no effect. I also dont like the idea of him trying to disable v-sync. Although I do like the name
Galaxy Nexus | Toro | Bugless Beast | Lean Kernel
