Default OmniROM 4.4 for GT-I9300

Requirements:
- CWM Touch 6.0.3.2+ or latest TWRP (if you have a metadata error when flashing, you're using a wrong recovery!)
- Knowledge about Android installation
- A brain
- Hands

Downloads
Nightly builds:
http://dl.omnirom.org/i9300

Eary test builds (handle with care, untested and potentially lethal stuff):
http://goo.im/devs/Rebellos/omni/

GApps:
Use PA-gapps in the meantime:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942


First installation:
- Download gapps and the latest nightly build
- Reboot to recovery
- Flash the nightly build then gapps
- WIPE DATA!!!
- Reboot and enjoy your KitKat

Updates:
OmniROM should pop-up notifications about new nightlies being available.

Changelog:
https://changelog.omnirom.org/#/i9300/next

Known device specific issues:
- Device does not enumerate on USB if booted up while connected to PC.
- Headphones playback path gets nuked if using microphone while listening to music. (Requires reconnecting headset)
- HWC module is a dummy piece of crap, thanks to Samsung openess thing. Needs reimplementation or big batch of fixes.

FAQ:
Q: Why do I get error code 7 when trying to flash ?
A: Because you are using old recovery. Update to the latest TWRP.

Q: Why is there a link for nightlies and for test builds?
A: Test builds got patches cherrypicked in that aren't tested well enough yet to be merged.

Warning 1: Mobile data connection is enabled by default.

Warning 2: Remember to BACKUP your data.

Well , beside Camera/video issues there is UI lags/stutters and lack of custumization features.

Its a good start anyway
