Welcome to Infamous S3

Before you start using this rom here are some things you need to know:

1. I am NOT updating every day (I work 6 days a week and have a 21 month old and a wife)...

2. Don't ask for ETA, this is rude and offensive. When it is done it is done.

3. Custom Roms come without warranty. They are tested before release but something always can go bad. So if you broke your phone or you got fired because the alarm didn't go off - I am not responsible.

4. Support is limited. Sometimes I can answer your questions sometimes I don't have the time. There will be times I don't have an answer so please do no repeat your question or get offended because I haven't answered you.

5. Don't compare ROMs. It is rude and offensive for developers. If the other rom has what you need, use that ROM.

6. Don't Kang my work. You may fool everyone else but I will know! If you want to use something just ask!

7. If you like my work, a five star thread rating and hitting the thanks button motivates me.

8. No flaming! We have all been a NoOb before. We are here to help each other.

* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

By using the rom you agree with the above terms!

Just edited the OP. The reason I went with it is because from my experience it is fast and stable. Also it is compatible with ktoonsez's Jelly bean kernels.

Also this ROM is wife safe!!!
