Extra info:

Installation method:
download ROM and save on your external/internal SD
go to Recovery and make BACKUP of current ROM in Backup and Restore option
if you move up from:
a) previous version of this ROM do WIPE CACHE
b) others 4.4 do the same, but if you see any bugs after boot, do WIPE DATA
c) any others android version do WIPE DATA
choose install zip from and select ROM, wait for completed installation
flash Fix if present
you can flash now Gapps package
now set reboot system now option and wait to system boot up

Download Rom:

MD5(check original package size)

disable Settings/wifi/advanced/scanning always available to save battery
if your phone always wake up when is pulled out from pocket, make sure than Settings/lock screen/notification on lock screen/pocket mode or wake on notification are disabled. You must do that once after first boot, tick and untick that functions.
Similar option is in Settings/display/smart cover wake. When its enable, proximity sensor is always on and that causing battery drain.
