Default [ROM][KK][4.4.4][KTU84P] SlimKat 6 UNOFFICIAL-20140707

SlimRoms is a custom android operating system. The main goal is to offer users a slimmed down but still feature rich alternative to other android operating systems.
The entire SlimTeam work together to bring you this tailor-made beauty straight from Android Open Source Project (AOSP) source code.
All of the sources can be publicly viewed through GitHub and you can stop by the public Gerrit to submit patches of any type.

Known Issues
Do not enable KSM
If lacking root, enter superuser settings, then tap superuser access and select apps and adb.
Try Performance Control for performance settings.
With 5.8 camcorder, switch audio to amr-nb - aac works with 6

Works beautifully, and it seems much faster than CM11.

I may have done something wrong though; I seem to have lost root access somehow.

Edit: Never mind, somehow a reboot fixed that.

Running great so far. Still searching how to disable the volume key flip on rotate though. Haven't found any bugs yet!

Had it running. Root was all messed up and it kept erroring when I went to Superuser menu to fix it like OP. Now when I reinstall the ROM from my SD card I get Status 7 failure. Some symlinks failed.

*disregard* gotta wipe data/factory reset to make it work. Not just manually format sys data cache. Oh well... Maybe root will work this time....

To get root access working you must go to developer options and under "Root access" select "Apps and ADB" That will make superuser functional.

Bug/Issue: 1. Settings crashes when going into Superuser and selecting settings. 2. GPS does not work. I couldn't get mapmyrun to get a gps signal.

EDIT* 3. Stock browser does not work well. When browsing a site such as google search there are black squares covering the screen. It happens as well with the google search app from playstore.

Overall, it works well

Looks like I jacked up superuser and GPS merging performance settings. I'll try fixing them next time.
