No one else tried this? Would be nice with someone elses findings from this firmware.
I dont think its as smooth as KI1, it feels fast but not as fluid as KI1. At first install i wiped everything with CWM and flashed the new firmware. And it was not as smooth as i expected. So i wiped my device clean once again(Factory reset, wipe cache and dalvik, formated system, data and cache and flashed in Odin with repartion checked. That has always helped in KI1 but still with KI2 i find it a litttle studdering. Will test some more and report back later.

Thanks for giving the review .. I would love to hear the updates from you nick

I am using KI1 now .. Honestly I dont see any reason to upgrade to KI2 since I assume the code is different due to different region release .. So hopefully you can change my mind

yep, it was 7th Sep on KI1. And i really dont like KI2 but i could be that i forgot the standard of stock rom , but as ii remember KI1 gave a much better experience. Maybe it needs some dev love and maybe then it will overshine KI1 but as of now i will go back to KI1 based rom. But dont let that stop you guys from trying this because it could be it just dont fit my device and overall it feels fast it just not smooth.
