USEFULL TIPS:


Multi User :

You can acess this Mod, under Settings > MODS

After adding an new user, phone will reboot, then on the Lockscreen turn your phone in landscape Mode to Choose the
new user and set up the new account.

For changing Users, on the Lockscreen, turn your phone in Landscape Mode.

Some Basic Info About The Multi-User MOD:

This MOD is Ported from the Tablet JB 4.2.x Edition:
Tablet has no Phone nor Messaging function so in this case, switching to other than primary
user may cause Phone app (com.android.phone) force close.
This is normal & make sense becouse we dont share phone to others.
Whenever there is incoming call in other(s)user account, phone will ring as usual
and LED notification but you need to switch to primary account immediately to pick up
or will see miss called notification in primary account.
Any activity related to Phone will force close in others account
(outgoing call, ussd dialing, etc)
SMS messaging can be sent thru other(s) account but any received sms only viewable in primary account.



Reducing UI Lag:

Settings > Developer Options > Select "Animation OFF" on this settings :
- Window animation scale
- Transition animation scale
- Animator duration scale

Calibrating the GPS:

1: Open the app "FasterGPS".
2: Install and give it root permissions
3: Choose your Continent
4: Choose your region (at this point, your gps is properly configured with your country *.ntp values)
5: EPO Download : Settings > Enginner Mode > Location > Location Based Service> EPO >
Select "Enable EPO" and "Auto Download" and Press "EPO (IDLE)". Now your GPS will lock in just seconds
6: Start the app "GPS Status", in the first Satts Lock, you need to wait a little bit (it can take up to 15m, be sure you are in an Open Area).
When you get an good lock, on Satts, your DONE.

Xposed GravityBox:

Thanks to C3C076 and Rovo89 (Xposed Framework)

1: Check MD5 (Re-Download if needed)

2: If you have the extended userdata Partion MOD, You need to flash the second .zip.

3: Check Intructions



ROM TESTED:
-On my 2 Phones
-Got feedback from 3 other users, it's working ok.


Thanks for testing

Did all that, still won't boot users on the Facebook are reporting it too. More important though, do you think wifi will be fixable? On my previous phone, the 4.2 rom's were all plagued by bad wifi (Huawei u8800)

4.3 is buggy. infact, it has been pulled out from OTA (on nexus device that are currently 4.2.2, you check for software update, it will say it is 4.2.2 is latest one, infact, few days ago, there was 4.3 OTA notification), since 4.2.2 is stable, i'd prefer to stay on 4.2.2 instead of 4.3.
