Default [ROM][CM10.1][Cyanogenmod 10.1 A500 BAREBONES][120 mb only!!!][24/12/13]

Merry Christmas to all!!! I know that everyone is expecting a 4.4 build for our beloved A500, but I tried my hand at building it and failed
However, I got a cm10.1 build working and I removed many useless and redundant apps included. It is very snappy and fast and i hope you guys will try my rom out

Download link
Rom: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1b...0BAREBONES.zip
Play Store only gapps: http://www.mediafire.com/download/hd...ly%20gapps.zip

Installation
- Download the rom and the play store only gapps.
- Boot into recovery and wipe data (wipe data if coming from another rom), cache and dalvik cache.
- Flash the rom before flashing the play store only gapps.
- After flashing the two files, reboot system.
- Do not panic if you do not see boot animation. I disabled it.
- ENJOY!!!

Features
- Lightning browser (From http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2113198 do pop by with a thank!!!)
- Search based launcher (From http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1874752 do also pop by with a thanks!!!)
- build.prop tweaks (From http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2256588 do pop by with a thanks!!!)
- Adblock (Thanks to AdAway!!!)
- Many removed apps and bloatware, so rom is very snappy

Removed apps
Apollo.apk
Basic Daydream.apk
Browser.apk
Calculator.apk
Calendar.apk
CalendarProvider.apk
CellBroadcastReceiver.apk
CMAccount.apk
CMFileManager.apk

Bugs
- After booting, recent app status bar button does not work. To solve this, go to settings > system > buttons and layout > and press reset on the top right corner. You must do this every time you reboot. This is a cm bug.
- Keyboard glitches out randomly. Install another keyboard if you like.
- Mic not working
- GPS not working
- You tell me

Are you planning a CM10.2 or even CM11. Just asking because these are being used but if you think this 10.1 will not be devoid of anything then please let us know.
Thanks

Default An update on the ROM

Installed it yesterday on acer a500. Not a brilliant experience. The backup programs did not work. The navigation buttons were not working . Only the recent programs and back button worked. Home did not. Good thing as you advised to make a backup through recovery so Im back on my original ROM.
