Latest Boeffla kernel is recommended for this ROM!
- The modem is not included in this ROM. You will keep your current modem. To change modem this will need to be done with Odin.
- This ROM is built for standard DPI. If you wish to change it that is fine but I don’t take requests to fix DPI issues.
- I made this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works fine for me. But what works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it and chose another ROM.
