  1. Make sure you have performed a clean install and have not flashed anything else or restored ANYTHING!!!
  2. If you experience a bug then boot into safe mode and see if it persists.
  3. If bug persists in safe mode then provide me with useful info:
    • build date
    • confirm a clean install (your exact install steps, recovery version, bootloader version, and whether or not you've restored ANYTHING or flashed ANYTHING else)
    • detailed description of bug
    • steps necessary to reproduce symptom(s)
    • include a logcat
  4. Failure to provide ALL this information will result in me ignoring your post and laughing at you...

Special thanks to:
and anyone else I've forked or received help from!
