Default [ROM][Official][4.4.4]CandyKat Rom[8/1/14]



This is CandyKat. Built straight from SlimRoms source with commits from a variety of different Sources/ROMS. We wanted to give the users a fun, fully customizable ROM.We aim to add more features as this project progresses. We have also come up with the Candy Sweetener Pack. This is an Aroma installer that is full of delicious treats. Inspired by the CandyShop thread on XDA it has everything from glow dots to halo mods.

Check us out on the web @The-Candy-Shop

Sweet. Thanks for the hard work. Can't wait for this one. Quick question though, can we use the sweetener pack after its been installed or does it gotta be done in the same recovery session as a fresh install?

Awesome. I haven't budged from BS Harmony since I flashed it...but I don't think I can resist the CANDYKAT. Thanks so much for your time.
