It worked a treat, syncing anyway All the APK's installed...

Although the base was not stable enough, I was getting the random reboots quite often.. So I couldnt test notifications..

I dont see why they wouldnt come through tho, considering all the APK's installed fine.

OR BETTER YET

Knox bootloader was included in one of the firmware updates by Samsung, some dev's removed it.. others ignored it so it might of been flashed on your phone.



Personally I manually updated my i9505 so I have the new bootloader, although my experience with GE KitKat was crap.


Reason why I ask, users on the OLD bootloader have a much stable experience with GE KitKat...


EDIT: Knox implements a whole bunch of other crap also, like a permanent binary counter you cant reset for warranty purposes or whatever etc. I suggest you read up on it.

Nope restored back to Omega, this Rom is very buggy plus only parts of the Gear manager works, no notifications, cant lock the phone with the gear.

Lots of little things

I was using danvdh's 4.4.2 rom and it was rock solid but ended up going back to darthstalker X (4.3) because of the gear. Gear manager installed, all of the 20 apps installed, but the notifications never synced while on 4.4. I'm sure I could have kept tinkering with things, but I figured I'd go to something that I knew was working properly. I've got no knox thank god, but flashed the MK2 modem on there because of the drops with the prior modem.

Dan's 4.4.2 rom + xposed + a syncing gear would be delightful though. Very happy with DS X albeit that the BT tethering does not work properly
