Assuming you have flashed the ROM, then a GApps package, I believe you see two options, each with an icon. One features an icon that looks like a cog, while the other looks like a black box with some sliders. If I understand correctly, the cog icon is for the native ColorOS setup, which you do *NOT* want to use as it is in Chinese. For a standard CM setup, select the icon which looks like a black box with sliders.

I have just two questions...
  1. Is anyone else using this ROM?
  2. From what ROM is this ported and can we see that ROM's home page?

I honestly can't recall just where I download this GApps package. I think what's important here is to be sure you are using a compatible GApps package, which is where I went wrong previously.

I have done some "hacking" of this ROM, removing unwanted APKs and installing an alternate keyboard etc. Not "hacking" in the true sense. I have done this to try and reduce the size of the ROM as it is much larger than CM ROMs. I have not yet found just the right files to remove. In my current installation, everything except gestures works, so I have obviously removed something that should not have been removed.

Please do go ahead and try it out. I would love to hear what you think. Until now I thought I was on my own with this ROM.

I never could get the rom into English without blindly flipping through all settings until I found it.

On top of it, then not all settings were in English, some were still in Chinese.

It looks like a promising rom but until it is completely in English or German for that matter, I wont be trying it. It was too frustrating to work with some Chinese screens.

I tested it about 1 minute ago and it works for me. Is it possible that access to the download site - MEGA - is restricted in your country?
