Introduction
Quote:
This is my second ROM release on XDA. I released MIUI v5 earlier, but LeWa was the first ROM I ported. I had given it to some forum members without distributing it widely. That ROM had some issues as well. In the MIUI thread, someone asked me to release LeWa ROM, but I was very comfortable with MIUI. Hence I started a poll and was planning to release LeWa if at least 30 people wanted it. I'm not waiting for the poll to close and is releasing LeWa ROM based on Lenovo S920 (ver 13.09.06).

Features

* Based on LeWa 13.09.06
* Both Internal and External SD Cards work without any issues
* Removed all Chinese Applications
* Removed Chinese Directory Entries
* Improved memory utilization vs. MIUI

Installation instructions
Quote:

Important: LeWa ROM needs changes in the boot.img. Hence you need a different boot.img to boot LeWa ROM. But this modified ROM is not included as a part of the ROM itself.

You need to flash modified ROM separately.
  1. Backup everything that matters to you
  2. Reboot into recovery (CWM)
  3. Make nandroid backup
  4. Wipe /data partition and /cache partition
  5. Install ZIP from SD Card
  6. Choose ZIP from SD Card
  7. Flash the new ROM
  8. Fash the Kernel (E3_LeWa_Kernel_Install.zip)
  9. Wipe dalvik-cache
  10. Reboot
Download

@milav
Yes, You can select 3G/2G from Settings->Wireless Networks -> More ... -> Mobile Networks
Just install Google Play Store. Everything else is there.
Haven't tried deodexing. You may try it.
@sheraz1015

I haven't observed any bugs.
