  then we will try to bring that feature into PAC-man
 (insert PAC-man eating a pellet sound here)

* And of course:








Code:

** See post #2 for extra information...



Code:

A BIG thank you to @IconRunner for putting together the FAQ!!

Bugs & PAC FAQ

Bugs:

PAPrefs is currently experiencing issues with hdpi devices, this has been reported to the PA team. Check this post for the workaround.
Some functions of Rom Control do not work, one example is Signal/WiFi custom colours.


PACman FAQ

PIE FAQ

Q. What is PIE?
A. PIE is a new way to interact with your notifications. It provides easy gesture based interaction with all your system information without taking up valuable screen space. PIE is what you see in this image.

Q. How do I access Pie?
A. Swipe your finger from the pie gravity edge (default is the bottom) toward the center of your screen. While keeping your finger on the screen, drag your finger to the desired button and release to click.

Q. My PIE doesn't look like the ones in the screenshots. I don't see the Clock or notifications.
A. Notifications work either through the status bar or PIE. If the status bar is enabled, PIE reverts to just the softkeys. To enable the full PIE experience, enable Expanded Desktop by going to Settings -> System -> Power Menu -> Expanded Desktop (Status bar hidden). Access the power menu and turn Expanded Desktop on.

Q. How do I change PIE colors?
A. Go to Settings -> Hybrid Properties -> Interface and change the Navigation bar color.

Q. Buttons or keyboard rows near the edge of my screen are nonresponsive.
A. PIE's trigger area overlay is covering the edge of your screen. Change either the Trigger Area or Pie Gravity in Settings -> System -> PIE Settings.

Q. I don't like PIE, how do I turn it off?
A. To disable PIE set Trigger Area to None in Settings -> System -> Pie Settings. Remember to disable Expanded Desktop to turn status bar on again.

ROM FAQ

Q.Do I need to do a full wipe before installing this ROM?

A. Unless coming from a previous version of PACman it is highly recommended to do a full wipe before installing. This includes coming from ParanoidAndroid ROMs.

Q.What do the settings in Hybrid Properties do?
A. ParanoidAndroid has an extensive guide to the settings at this thread: [GUIDE][PARANOIDANDROID] A Complete Compendium on ParanoidPreferences [PA-Settings] Please do not post questions related to PA Settings in this thread, they are not ROM specific and all we'll do is point you to that thread.

Q.How do I turn on the Navigation Bar??
A.To enable the NavBar open Hybrid Properties, swipe the screen to the right to peek through to the menu.
Select Interface, now set your desired NavBar size with the slider.

Q.Something isn't working. What do I do?
A. First, make sure you are running the latest stable version. For i9100 users, try using the latest Dorimax kernel, for i777 users stick with the CM kernel provided. That should solve half the problems. If it persists, backup data using Titanium and do a full wipe reinstall. If the problem persists, report what it is and what triggers it so the dev can duplicate it.

So here's the story... these 4.4 builds are automated; I am NOT the maintainer nor the developer

I know there are several of you who have known about these builds for a while, but I (and others) felt the right thing to do was to create a new thread pointing to their existence. Think of this as a "portal" thread.

Have fun, be respectful and enjoy PAC!!!

I can't thank IconRunner enough for allowing me to post the new 4.4 thread - it's because of him and @Sblood86 that we have automated builds in the first place.

Been on this ROM for over a month. Only thing I notice that is an annoyance is when your are using messenger and you put the phone down and it goes to the lock screen. When you go back to unlock the phone the swipe circle is way off the screen.

That's bc it locked in landscape mode. I've seen that on other ROMs. Are you the latest nightly?

Ah. Just tested again and locked the phone in landscape. It was off the screen when I unlocked it. Good find. Yes I'm on the 4/17 nightly. It has happened on every night as far as I can remember. Been using pacrom 4.4 since it came out.
