It's not so easy for me. I have twrp since the first day I've rooted the phone and there are a lot of problems with custom roms. Viperone was great but it was draining the battery, installing insertcoin resulted in long boot time or not working wifi (depending from kernel). There are just so many problems with this device. On skydragon won't work all of the gestures. Even stock deodexed rom doesn't work correctly.
I'm also wondering why there are only few kernels available for this device and none of them works 100% correctly.
However it's still a great device, with a bit little battery

LOL? I think your device is definitely focked up...there are just two kernels for sense and gpe because the device itself is the most bugfree and reliable android phone which is out ...gestures are always working for me...every Rom I flashed..doesn't matter if gpe or sense worked out of box, no WiFi or whatever problem as long as you do what you really need..like flashing the right firmware etc...if twrp doesn't work that good use Philz...Philz just has a problem with aroma that it is transparent...just use another static colour or so...really the phone is working like it should and even better...
Flashed elementalx kernel and it's better then stock kernel.... Viper yea has a bit bad battery life compared to others but insertcoin is really awesome...will flash it later again

You haven't followed the instructions for most of the 2.22 based ROMs that state updated firmware is required; and now you are blaming the kernels? I'm on InsertCoin and every thing works flawlessly.

Firmware is likely you main problem here, especially if you are saying long boot times and WiFi is not working (dead giveaway and known issues with wrong firmware). Just pay for sunshine s-off, update the firmware, and be done with it.

Well, I updated the firmware to 4.4.3 before installing any custom 4.4.3 firmware, so I don't think I didn't follow the instructions.

And I don't want to get s-off by paying because I will most likely change this device soon.

Yeah, this phone is very tricky bastard.
I've tried various of kernels, but wifi doesn't work on 4.4.3 roms when I use them.
And about the gestures, in some roms they work, in some not, like for example now, on skydragon, I can only use double tap, every other gesture won't work, however I don't care about them because in using the magnetic cover, which is a very nice feature and the only reason I use flip cover like case.

I think you are confused. When folks talk of the 2.22 firmware, this is not a 4.4.3 ROM. When "firmware" is mentioned here, it refers to a zip package that includes hboot, radio, WiFi, media and other modules. These are not contained in a ROM.

If you didn't do this, this is the reason why you are having issues.

S-off is required to flash firmware. If you want to fix your issue you need s-off, and to flash the firmware. If you don't want to pay, that is not my business. But you will continue to have problems.
