READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING/FLASHING OR POSTING IN THE THREAD:

Please send your donation to the RSPCA (A UK Based animal welfare charity)
They only survive by donations and are struggling with the amount of abandoned animals this year (More than ever)

This is the link:
RSPCA

-----------------------------------------------------

  • If you refuse to read the thread and you ask a question that has been covered, i will ignore your post
  • If you find a bug, i want more than 'Hlap, mai fone broked'
  • You are flashing this at your own risk - I will not be held responsible for anything that goes wrong
  • ETA requests will be ignored
  • Requests for new mods will be read, not necessarily actioned
  • Rom Control only works in English, other languages will fc (Translations are being looked at)
  • If you are experiencing lag in the gallery, wait for the phone to finish loading/caching all the images
  • To repeat, i will not add in any Touchwiz features that aren't already in the ROM
  • Do not ask for ETA's or early changelogs...its rude
  • There will never be a non inverted option for this ROM

Cant take a screenshot?
You must manually create the folder:
/storage/sdcard0/Pictures/Screenshots


FAQ
Why dont i have any power menu toggles? - Disabled by default, toggle in Rom Control
Why cant i wake the phone with the home button? - Disabled by default, toggle in Rom Control

Known Issues
Duplicate search results in contacts
