I am proud to present to you BeanStalk Builds put together by myself. This is a build composed off of the CM builds and i have added alot of features on top of it. So you get speed, stability, and ultra customization ability. Many of the additional code additions came from slim ROM and also Derteufels build and have been modified to work with my current setup. A huge thanks to Derteufel and the Slim ROM guys for their work and dedication. Also a big thanks to everyone involved with CM as that is the building stone in this project. Thanks to skyliner33v for the bootanimation and upcoming wallpapers!

I plan on updating this and adding features on a pretty regular basis, so if you happen to like this, keep checking back.

Move on and flash something else. I will not tolerate ungrateful people in my thread.***

*I swapped the nav menu button for the AOKP style
*I noticed the "Beanstalk options/Status Bar/Status Bar Color" option is new. Changes everything but the battery, that has to be changed manually.
*Help me keep an eye out for other features new to this build.

Thanks guys, try it out and give me some feedback. Everything's working great on my v500, but if you guys can find a bug i'll try to see what I can do to fix it.

I've run Mahdi since I got my v500, which is a great rom, but I love Beanstalk on my N5 and I wanted to port it to this device. I also figured others might want another good option for a device that so far has pretty limited development.

Its working great!
Very fast and stable, no problems so far.
I like the fact it comes with nova launcher , but it seems a little bit too bloated for me (trebuchet and holo launcher are there for no reason imo)
I am also getting issues with xposed after using titanium backup, also couldn't use my nova layout backup.
I would really enjoy a debloated version that comes with no additional apps, but other than that, it's perfect! You did a spectacular job!
Thank you very much!

Edit: a list of small bugs I find, constantly updated

Performance control makes settings crash
Notification transparency slider is very small
Boot animation is 16:9
ticking contextual notification panel header causes the time and date in Notification panel to be slightly swallowed in black from bottom to top every time you tick until disappearing completely (hard to explain!)
Screen recorder doesn't work

My pad is almost as smooth as my G2 now. None of the other roms I tried was anywhere near this smoothness. And I haven't found any real issue. Great work!

Awesome port. I love beanstalk. Ridiculous amounts of customization. Been running for a little while, but have a few small bugs to report. Let me know if you want logs.
-performance control in settings fc's when trying to open
-lock ring handle will not change to default standard, it stays beanstalk
-if menu nav key added, it double vibrates (if vibrate enabled) when tapping. This one bugs me, I don't know why!
That's it for now, nothing drastic, simply awesome

I'm having the performance control fc too, but I had this on several other roms on different phones. And I have an app for that. There was one more fc, I think in the beanstalk options somewhe somewhe, I don't remember where exactly.
