Hi chaps, I'm kind of new here, I've just rooted my first phone and installed slimrom slimkat 4.4.3, almost all is well lol, one thing that's weird is the little icon that shows my mobile signal strength, it's dark all the time despite being able to make calls, send texts even get high speed Internet but it never shows signal strength??? Weird eh.

as you might know Slim 4.4.3 is a beta, hence you have to live with bugs. Just to make sure, did you do all wipes and formats as instructed when installing the rom?

ROM: Slim Bean 4.3

Nexus 7 2013

Arrrrr right yer ok it runs ok but I do have a couple of other questions, can I install the aroma on top of the rom or is this rom the wrong type and is there a way to add the option to move apps to the SD card?

It's currently on ver. 4.2 and runs pretty smooth, battery life really depends on what you do with the phone, standby time is great but if you like to fiddle n play games as I do then expect to charge at least once a day, plus I have 3 e-mail accounts that sync + facebook + tapatalk + ebay etc.
