 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

TWRP 2.7 Recovery
OmniROM 4.4.4
GAPPS (feel free to use any GAPPS, as long as it's meant for 4.4.4)
Odin 3.07
SuperSU

Instructions
  1. Download OmniROM 4.4.2, TWRP Recovery, GAPPS, and SuperSU. Place OmniROM 4.4.2, GAPPS, and SuperSU on your external sd card.
  2. Flash TWRP Recovery via ODIN. Turn off your phone, and put your phone in download mode by pressing volume down button, home button and the power button simultaneously and letting go. Press volume up when prompted.
  3. Plug in your phone via usb, and open up ODIN and load the recovery in PDA and flash away. Do not tick or untick anything.
  4. After it flashed, reboot to recovery (by pressing volume up, home, and power simultaneously).
  5. Make a full backup in case things go awry.
  6. Press wipe and slide to do a factory reset.
  7. Install OmniROM 4.4.2, GAPPS, SuperSU via recovery (you can choose multiple zips and then swipe to flash them all at the same time).
  8. After flashing is complete, wipe cache/dalvik.
  9. Reboot to system, and enjoy OmniROM 4.4.2!

Note
- I'll update this post with the latest build; you can flash over the previous build without a factory reset and wipe dalvik/cache unless specified otherwise, or you seem to continue to still experience the bugs that should have fixed.

Thanks for this awesome ROM. Will be testing soon. Hopefully you can either fix your phone or get a cheap replacement soon.

EDIT: Does this ROM works well with Meticulus' latest CWM Recovery version 6.0.4.7 or we have to use your TWRP? Thanks.

Want to try out omni. Coming from beanstalk. Do I need to download and flash ROM and md5? Also do I need the gapps you have for omni or can I just keep the beanstalk gapps I have already.

Edit: OK, I get the ROM situation. The md5 is for Odin if I'm correct. Still wanna know bout the gapps tho.

The MD5sum is optional, it basically allows anyone to check if the version they download is correct and complete. Beanstalk gapps will work just fine!

Hi to assure you great exp wit your phone please make sure you have fully wiped your phone clean and cleared davlik cache make sure you are using his twrp and his latest build. I am using it and have Bluetooth working and sound. 99% of the people failed to fully wipe there phone in cwm cleared all and any caches before flashing this rom and any other. Most clamed they were getting random reboots on beanstalk I've been using this for a few days now and haven't gotten one single reboot moral of this is make sure you are properly flashing or you will end up.with bugs

When you were referring to the bluetooth, do you mean it doesn't transfer over audio or? It makes a weird noise, because that bug is also present on beanstalk, and cm and I'm not sure what that is yet. I haven't fully tested out bluetooth but I'll do so, and see what you mean.
