Thumbs up this is IT, thee 4.4.4 ROM
Now using the newest Slim gapps and working perfectly. I've actually gotten Google to cooperate with this ROM and the phone runs fantastic overclocked, xposed, you name it. Titanium Backup doesn't hang when converting user apps into system, updating BusyBox a cinch. CM torch is more of a nightlight, but 3rd party torch apps are bright, including Xposed Wanam hardware button torch by longpress up volume. I've disabled the hardware home wake and now only power wakes and then use home to unlock. It hasn't done anything in my pocket yet. So yes, lots of customizations and a dark switch.
Unfortunately, Google services randomly updates itself and after having some 120 MB to play with on the system, it plunges to 20 MB; kicking Maps, Hangouts, and Hangouts dialer off the system, with some kind of placeholder pretending to be installed until you go to the Play Store and update it as a user app. The Gservices update service seemed to run for 2 days straight. I was about to do a deep sleep patch from recovery when it finally stopped running. Maybe because I Greenified it IDK.
I did get spoiled with PacMan features, but it has a major wifi bug. Working hardware is the basic necessity of a daily driver, the tweaks are and utilities are cool, but not as practical.
