Sorry for the slow and lack of updates guys, have had a lot going on lately and haven't had much time to do anything.
I'm just starting to settle down from everything happening in my life (all good things). I'm planning on a kernel update soon.
If anyone has noticed issues with YouTube being laggy, slow, and whatever else, it's because of the YouTube Background Play Xposed module. You can uncheck it or maybe try updating it in the meantime. I'm probably going to remove it in the next update. I'm not sure what else to add to this ROM other than maybe a theme or try porting features/apps from newer devices, but that always introduces a risk of possible instability, battery drain, and random other issues. We'll see. If anyone has any ideas don't hesitate to hit me up on hangouts. I'm too slow at replying to PMs (by the way, sorry about that!) because I just have way too many and it gets overwhelming.
As far as Lollipop goes..meh, I'm sticking with KitKat personally because of a few things. A) Sprint and Samsung screwed us over with just a 5.0 update while multiple other Samsung devices are getting at least 5.0.1, some even 5.0.2 and all we have is 5.0. We all know Android Lollipop initially had a lot of small issues and memory leaks that had Google quickly push out 5.0.1, 5.0.2, and then 5.1 and 5.1.1...and whatever else they need to push out in order to stabilize lollipop to their standards. Since we got just 5.0 without none of these fixes, I feel as though it's a disservice to us and won't be using it. B) Xposed isn't compatible with Touchwiz. Samsung altered ART in a way that makes it incompatible. C) KitKat has been really stable and great for me so I don't have nearly as much of an upgrade itch as I would if we had gotten a more up to date Lollipop version as well as Xposed support.
I would like to thank you all for your continued support with this ROM and for all the help you've given other folks who've had questions, or issues and I haven't been around to reply. I would also like to apologize for everyone for not being around lately to answer questions or give updates about things going on involving this ROM and the Stock Rooted ROM and our Note 3s in general. I will try to do better now that things are stabilizing for me.
