Download Avatar ROM:

Android version 4.2.2 based on CM10.1
  • ROM
  • Gapps (4.2.2)
  • Notification Fix - This contains fix for notification LED not lighting up during charging. It also adds the option to switch on the flashlight by holding the home button at the lockscreen.

Old Build:

  • Cyanogen Team
  • Trebuchet launcher
  • MiUi Theme creators
  • albinoman887 for his invaluable cm10.1
  • Hellmanor for helping me with the bugs.

This should be free from any bugs apart from the ones that are in albinoman887's cm10.1.
If you find any other bug, Let me know, I will try to fix it. No promises though. I am not really a developer.
