A Short Review of this ROM. :)
I have used this ROM for about a day now and it is working fine. Though the bug list says it is not stable, I found this ROM to be quite stable. Apart from the disappearing of some apps on reboot, this ROM runs really good. This bug is not really serious as the missing apps come back after rebooting for a second time. However, rebooting the ROM takes a long time and that is quite annoying. Further, I found out that ART runtime cannot be used in this ROM. The camera in this ROM works good and I have been able to select 5MP and 720p quality settings in a third party Camera app. I have also noticed that the audio quality in headphones is not that good. No matter what equalizer or enhancements I use, the audio quality doesn't change. Further, the USB storage cannot be mounted in this ROM which restricts the transfer of files to and from the SD Card. However, the USB storage can be mounted correctly through clockworkmod. In this ROM, the total available RAM stands at 370MB which is little more than what is normally available on this phone (~360MB).
Overall, this ROM seems to be fine and with a little bug-fixing, it can become a stable and smooth ROM.
I don't know whether this is a bug of this ROM or a feature that the provided KERNEL is missing, the HW+ or HW decoder in MX player is not working. When opening a video using HW+ or HW decoder, the player gives an error stating that this video can't be played using hardware decoding. I have tried several videos of different formats but all of them refuse to play in hardware decoding mode. This is too bad as on this phone, .mkv files of 720p play smoothly only when they are used with HW+ decoder. I hope the developer can fix this.
