Default [ROM] Dirty Unicorns 4.4.2 {UNOFFICAL p930} (02/19/14)

Feeling dirty ?



Dirty Unicorns (DU) is a custom ROM originally based off AOKP, but now based from OmniROM. DU brings you a great mix of stability and customization. The idea to start a ROM like this was purely out of boredom, but later turned into a form of an addiction, a good one. We began to have fun while still doing things the right way. By doing so, we received high praise from not only our users but by fellow developers of other ROMs that enjoy seeing things done the right way. This ROM will always be free of charge without any strings attached or any of it's developers luring you into donating or any form of "pay to flash".


"Give credit and thanks where is due!" That's something that has fuel the way we do things! With that said, we would like to go ahead and credit those individuals and groups that have made this ROM possible with their original code and contributions to the Android community.....

Issues
- Nothing that I know of as of right now, but feel free to report something.
- Note enabling ART is not supported and will simply cause the ROM to continually reboot. That is because ART is not supported by the xposed framework used by this rom..

Have fun, stay dirty.

Any GPS lock issue or BSODs like I have experienced other KitKat Roms after 2/7?

Yes there are still occasional memory allocation issues (aka BSOD), I am trying to upgrade the wind kernel to run CM11, I have it compiling but it did not boot - more investigating required

I've been running Dirty Unicorns for about a day. The rom seems smoother and more responsive vs. the Mokee rom. The one annoying issue (for me) is that the hardware menu lights are not illuminated. Is there a way to enable them? I found the option to enable the software menu keys, but I prefer not to give up the real estate on the screen. I'm using the Capacitive app but it doesn't respond very well (e.g. turns the lights on/off haphazardly).

Good job! I see a lot of promise with this rom.


Thanks!

alright then, i've been using DU for 4 days, i'll try to make it short

The Good:
-Awesome customization options (center clock, network speed indicator etc, all the good stuff is there)
-Many features (Halo, PIE, Lockscreen notifications, Active Display... you name it, it's there)
-No sdcard bug when installing apps (no need to push to /data or unmount the sdcard)
-Stable (as in doesn't crash and didn't have a single BSOD, but read on...)

The Bad:
-Tiny omissions that get on your nerves (no network mode toggle in the quick settings panel? really?)
-Browser crashes from time to time (just install chrome)
-Torch takes about 8-10 seconds to turn on (just annoying, no dealbreaker)

The Ugly:
-Phone slows to a crawl every 12 hours or so. It won't crash, but it will be slow as molasses, not really respond to your touch input, eat your battery alive and restarting from that state takes about 5 minutes
-Network connection will crap itself sometimes, it doesn't lose connection, but there's nothing above 200b/s (bytes, not kilobytes!), phone calls are hit and miss and you can't send or receive sms...


all in all a nice rom, but don't use it if you HAVE to be reachable for friends/coworkers/family ^^''

Thanks for the review, this weeks build was not stable as well. I am working on tuning the kernel to match the ROM, stay tuned.

no problem, you're the one doing the actual work, so i think writing a few lines for a review should be par for the course

yeah, some kernel tuning would be nice, the standard CM-Kernel is pretty basic. i dont really care for OC, but UV and a smartass governor would definitely be nice to have, since our device's favorite food seems to be batteries.

thanks for supporting our ol' heap o junk ^^
