Not sure why I have to wait for 10 posts but I would prefer to be posting in the correct dev thread.

For those like me with broken power buttons this ROM can be made for volume wake up by following the instructions in the post linked to by jib_intelli. Download a sqlite db editor and give it root access (I used SQLite Debugger). Then navigate to /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db, Once there go into the "System" table then change the command line which probably says something like "select * from SYSTEM"

Change it to "insert into system values(null, 'volume_wake_screen', '1');"

Commit those changes and then reboot. It works, makes the volume wake the phone up.

Chrome is still performing very badly, especially under 3G data.

Opera which normally performs better is not that great under 3G either. Dolphin browser is working better and very fast.

Finally. Last post before I can post in the dev thread.

Last point for the moment. Hangouts as an SMS client is crap. So I've loaded on Chomp SMS. The launcher is so embedded with Google+ Now that I've replaced it with Apex Launcher. The ROM is running nicely and smoothly and I appreciate the work onejay09's put in, but my question is since I've customised everything, what advantage is there in running 4.4 over 4.2?

Default back to Linaro yet

Just went back from 4.4 v3 to linaro 4.2

4.4 Rom is slower and iŽm missing some features (Use Back Button for closing apps, hide apps).
Chrome is bad yet, and I donŽt want to use too many browsers.

But, for sure, IŽll give V4 or V5 an 2nd try .

Anyone else with experiences in this rom?

BTW: Just trying to make my 10 posts for coming to developer section - then IŽll ask for this in the right thread
