I saw the PAC ROM thread today. I do think it might have been better to start a new thread for 4.4; I read a page or two before I realized I was reading about 4.3. Kit Kat is quite a different beast in some ways.
I had been looking at Carbon, and it does appear more feature-filled and stable than others (except perhaps now with the PAC ROM). I'll probably watch these two closely for a while before leaping. And since it now appears official that Samsung will have a Kit Kat ROM for the N5110 I might hold off and see what Civato does with it.
One of the important questions is exactly what is lost by ditching TouchWiz, balanced against the new features with an open source ROM.
Lots to think about...
Oh, and no comment re: CyanFox?
No problem! Haha, well...its kinda too late with that. I've spent way too much time here during first semester and I didn't get the grades I wanted. Hopefully I'll have better self control this semester
And for pac, the team decided to not make new threads and just update the 4.3 one, so I guess I have to keep it like that.
And alright, Carbon was the ROM i stayed on the longest (other than pac, I've used pac as a daily driver ever since the week after I got my tablet). Quick note though, if you are familiar with pac, in past releases we had all the PA settings such as halo, hybrid settings, pie controls, etc. However, with kitkat, PA are still rewriting those main features so we don't have them yet. They will be merged when PA merges them.
To me, nothing was lost since apps could replicate the s-pen functionality and all these roms are a lot faster than touchwiz. Before making a definite choice, I would highly recommend trying them all out first and see which one you enjoy best. If you need anything else, feel free to ask me.
Oh yeah, sorry, I saw it on a sketchy website and kinda hesitated. But now I found their official site. I may need to check xda rules and / or some of the mods to see if I can link to an external site. I think its okay, but I'll go double check before adding it. Do you know who builds it for our device? Seems like there are no nightlies after feb 17th.
