/* Known issues */

Rare kernel panic due to arter97 kernel not fully supporting block ioctls from N7100 ROMs (planned to fix soon)
Rare graphic glitches due to incompatible mali drivers (fix planned when Samsung releases N7100's KK kernel source)
Some users may experience Wi-Fi issues (see below)
Cannot dial internal services like *#0*# (not planned to fix)
Lock-screen unlock effects: "Blind", "Circle axis" will not save, and reset on every boot
Nothing major anymore, will be ready for a daily driver

/* Wi-Fi issue */

Some users with MAC-address not recognized by macloader will experience Wi-Fi connection issues.
If so, type "echo 'murata' > /data/.cid.info" from the terminal with root permissions.
If it still doesn't work, try changing "murata" to "semcosh" or "semcove".
