Have been running it today.
Camera works, bluetooth audio works with hickups when I do stuff during playing music but no problem when just listening.
Wifi reconnected just fine after being out, but that was only once.

Great Work!!!
Will try it out this week, but my 1gig Mate doesn't handle these 4.4.x ROMs very well unless I run them barebone (i.e. if I don't load my apps). Can anyone recommend a good RAM manager that I could try to see if it helps?

WiFi issues
Been running this ROM since midnight last night. Not bad at all. Think it has given me the best overall response of all the 4.4.x ROMs I've tried. Runs very smoothly. Only issues I've had are that sometimes when I press the power button to wake the phone up it doesn't wake up and I'm having occurrences of the WiFi turning itself off and when I try to turn it back on it doesn't turn on. Tried using WiFi fixer and that didn't work either. In order to get the WiFi to turn back on I have to reboot.
Going to do a full wipe and reinstall and see what happens. Haven't seen anyone else say anything about this so I'm going to check if it was just a bad install.
I would really love a 4.4.x ROM I can use as a daily driver. This ROM comes awful close.

On a side note:
Is apollo music player missing by choice?
Or did I do something wrong?

I went away from this carbon for a few days, comming back to play music over bluetooth. Was not dissapointed

But after charging full, battery was down to 38% in 17 hours, google play services being responcible for 58% of power consumption.... Followed by screen with 9%...

There is more info on this topic but having this improved is at the top of my wish list!

Edit: Have tried a diy fix:
Goto settings>privacy>privacy guard, then "menu" at top right hand side of the screen, choose advanced...

Then look for "google play services" om several pages and tap on it on each page.
Disable "stay awake" or simmilar.

You may dissable stuf you actually need, be carefull!

The more involved way:
