Some feedback:

Here's my config: ROM Jamie's CM 4.2.2 Unofficial
Kernel : 4Aces v28 - no settings apk. Fast charge enabled thru CM menu.
Updated to CM 2/21 - cm1-10.1-20130221-Nigtly. Directly from updates menu of ROM. No problem reportable during update.
Very rare screen flicker. Not done anything to developer menu since it is not often enough to be bothersome.
Bluetooth works - mainly use for Audio output. Navigation notifications also go out in between music, and music resumes cleanly. Don't know about keyboard or mouse, do not have them. BUT BT does suddenly go off (NEVER while playing yet), mainly during connection phase. Reboot fixes it. If adding new device this may happen but reboot fixes it.
GPS is good even on real rainy/cloudy day.
Wifi is very good. ONLY, it sometimes does not reconnect to my router automatically. Need to click on network to re-connect. No biggey.
Changed number of rows/columns to 4 for home screen. Was getting icon names cutoff, and icons going to close to edge.

Overall VERY SMOOTH ! Really nice and kudos to both devs !!!!!!

ok, i found developer options, but nothing fixes the flickering. most of the time my screen is black, with occasional flashing to normal, however when i scroll the screen is ok (but as soon as i release it goes back to flickering like crazy)

ya i found it 1 min after i posted, but you have to wait 5 minutes before editing deleting...grr. but im still having the flickering issue.

EDIT: ok so i reinstalled, and it turns out the flickering is being caused by the Aces kernel. if i only install the ROM there is no flickering.

Highly doubt it has anything to do with kernel, unless Chris said there was a problem in his thread?

Even though sometimes you still get surprises when you do things right. At least you know you took precautions and where to look for problems.

well i am able to replicate the problem, and it only exists after i install the kernel. there is also another fellow in the kernel thread who is reporting the same problem.

also, wanted to say that so far (aside from my kernel issue) this rom is AWESOME. amazing work!!!!

For the icons getting too close to the edge, in System Settings - Launcher - Homescreen - make sure the Stretch screens is selected! I thought I had a bad flash, but it was just this setting. Took me forever to find, can't even remember the search terms I used originally, but I found the tip from jlpatte2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...h#post37839464

I've attached a screenshot of the page for the setting; hope it helps.

Also, Jamie, since dev on PA seemed to be at a standstill for now, I jumped over here and love it! Thanks for all the hard work!

The battery life I am getting on this ROM is insanely good! I can actually go the whole day without needing to plug it in, given my normal usage habits.

The flickering issue is not related to one kernel perse, in my case, I tested HotCake's, Ace's and stock kernel, and the less flickering is with the stock... other that that, this ROM rocks!
'G Note 3, stock to the bone... but rooted!!
