Full clean installation recommended even if you're coming from QS-i9300-KK stock.
Wipe Data/Cache if you're coming from BETA 1.

WHAT'S NOT WORKING?
  • If you try to set a custom ringtone to a contact through Contacts app you'll find a FC. You can set it from Music app or My Files app.
  • One-hand Operation.
  • You'll see graphic glitches sometimes. Rarely.
  • Phone will always boot if you turn it off and then plug in the charger.



Quote:

Here are some tweaks for performance, smoothness and ram improvement.
  • Make sure "Power Saving" is not enabled unless you need it.
  • Go to Settings > More > Developer options and find "Window animation scale", "Transition animation scale" and "Animator duration scale".
  • Set those three option to 0.5x and reboot.
  • Go to Settings > More > Developer options and find "Limit background processes" and set it at most 2 processes.
  • If you're using a Boeffla power saving profile (aka battery yank or something) you'll have some lags a few times.
  • If you're using Boeffla kernel then go to Boeffla Config app > Miscellaneous tab > Swappiness overwrite. Turn it on and set it 60 or 80.
  • Use Greenify, it always help.

Can you add stock s3 browser as a .zip or in aroma, nothing wrong with s5 browser BUT it don't support bookmarks from stock s3 browser.
Only way to add those bookmarks seems to be to add them in stock browser, switching to chrome isn't an option so let's just forget it all together.

@efevelasquez pay attention, forum administrators are shutting down all QS based roms forums. Check what oy can do to keep it alive before it's too late...
  • what's the QS base? V2.3 or v2.4?
  • how much RAM is occupied in your ROM?
  • is whatsapp working properly?

thank you

1. It's v2.4 but I'm giving proper credits to QS and Archiport either way.
2. For me, 500+.
3. Working fine.

Actually I'm not part of any team, just myself. Notice that Lite-ROM v4.0 stands for JellyBean and KitKat-ROM is a side project. I'll keep updating both roms as far as I can.
