Hello guys, I've just recently found the pyramid in the drawer and started messing with it again.. so here's what I've been working on.

You get: All the latest SlimKat greatness, with @Flemmard's kernel. This is currently a WIP, as I'm working on making it completely bug free. It IS on par with Flemmard's trees and has various fixes, improvements and tweaks from me. Also worth noting is that it IS fairly stable.

I'd like to give a shout out to all the guys who have kept the sensation alive maintaining the AOSP trees. Without them, this wouldn't be possible, nor I would had been motivated to chime in and help. You rock guys

A few notes
  • Always use the latest 4ext recovery. TWRP seems to trigger an emmc controller bug in some devices
  • Feel free to contribute on our gerrit

BUGS

busted LPA
Occasional shutdown on led flash burst when taking pics in low battery
No self-powered OTG


You tell me. They will end up in the list only if they're coming from a clean install and include a bugreport or logcat showing the issue. Help me help you

Nice to see another Slimkat ! Can it be installed without issues, or is a tweak needed, as mentioned in post #7 ?
Btw, the screenshots look very nice.
Thanks
