Phone Installation Guide
For a quick, down and dirty (so to speak) installation guide look below. I will update with a cleaner guide in a few days.
Please before you do anything, make a nandroid backup.

1) Download the ZIP file from the link above and check with the MD5 hash to make sure that it is correct

If you do not already have a 4.3 modem please click here to download the correct modem. Put it on the SD card and flash at the end of this install!

2) Put it on your SD card (external or internal)

3) Reboot into recovery, wipe data/cache and dalvik cache

4) Install from SD card and flash the Rage zip file

5) Follow the steps in AROMA for setup and choose Custom or Default (all apps/bloatware will be loaded) for installation type.

6) This WILL flash the Insecure AT&T kernel

7) Once installation is complete, reboot your phone and enjoy! :)

8) If you have not installed, make sure you do that after install (uncheck the Reboot on AROMA). Remember the first boot will take a few minutes, let it completely install. I always make sure to install backed up apps after that or install new apps/update new apps from the Play store. After you have done so, restart phone again seems to help everything :)

9) If when through recovery you get asked about disabling recovery click yes and asked about making sure you have root, again click yes.

Question Frequently Asked Questions
Have something you want to see in the next version? Custom Kernels, Mods, Themes, etc? PM me and let me know
How can I get even BETTER battery life?
You can still receive SMS (not MMS) if you have data turned off. Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Uncheck Mobile Data. You can use that while sleeping/etc to get unbelievable battery life with this ROM!

Phones usually take a couple battery cycles to get themselves doped out properly. Give it a couple battery cycles to recalibrate itself.

You can also recalibrate your battery with Battery Calibration. Charge your phone to 100% (use currentwidget to make sure its actually at 100% and 2100mAh) then calibrate your battery using the app. Let your phone die completely, then charge completely.

Does Native Tethering Work?
I have not tested it yet, however, if it does not you can go to the link provided to get it to work:
Enable Tethering

Does Google Wallet work?
Fixed in Version 2.0

Is 4Way Reboot included or unlimited multi-window working?
Not yet but Xposed has a download for Advanced Power Menu to offer that.

How Do I Turn on Developer Options?
Go to Settings > More > About Device > Click on Build Number 7 times!

Any other requests for mods that you would like seen, or bugs please report so they can be fixed.

Sorry if Posts were deleted! Thread was cleaned (didnt know it would delete everyone elses posts! Sorry!!)

Hopefully well uploaded to Terafile but when I tried to download said it was only downloading 100 MB of the 819 Uploaded so not sure whats going on there. The file server maybe hasnt verified the whole file or something would be my only guess...so still waiting...

nice. don't mean to compare or sound rude, but how is this different from Saranhai and Team Inferno's StockMOD ROM, the custom version?
