Bug Reports:
Reporting bugs is important But reporting them properly is KEY.

If you think youve came across something that is not working as desired [bug] folow these steps to report.

1. RE-flash your rom cleanly and do not install gapps or restore anything. This will confirm the bug is in the rom and not a compatibility issue with your data or chosen gapps.

2. A logcat is very important for me to trouble shoot the bug ..

3 pull a logcat by connecting your device to the computer and open terminal then type adb logcat hit enter.

4 navigate to your bug and recreate it while connected and watch for a fatal exception.

5 copy the text apd use paste bin to share it with me.. after youve saved it copy the link and post it in the thread. Please ensure youve captured the fatal exception in the paste otherwise it will do no good.

I'm looking forward to it.

Droyd, I have a huge request if it is possible. For the future builds please include THIS patch also. Currently there is only one ROM that includes it and that's BeanStalk (I've asked phoenixita to include it when he builds it). Without it, my car-kit is useless.

ROM is working smooth and fine. Even if you say it has only "basic" things, it has alot already. The bugs I've found are the general KitKat bugs affecting almost all ROMs. First the nasty backlight issue during calls. Then I found that in Settings - Volume even if you tick to have separate ringing/notification volumes this is not preserved after you go away from that screen. You just have to tick/un-tick the option again when you're back there. But as I said, they're present in the other KitKat ROMs also

By the way when you switch the sounds to link or unlink you are selecting OK at the bottom right? I ask cause I'm not getting that issue at all.. I select OK and it sticks.

What is the backlight issue..?

I've pressed OK I do like this: go into the menu, by default there is only one slider for ringtone&notifications. Below is the checkbox. I un-tick it to have separate sliders and there is appearing the slider for notifications. I'm adjusting a lower volume for them, then press OK. If I go again into that menu, what is strange is that the checkbox remains un checked but the second slider for notifications is gone (not shown). The only one remaining is labeled only "ringtone" this time but I have to tick/un-tick again the option to make the second slider appear. On the other hand, on the expandable volume panel (brought up by vol buttons), there are 2 different sliders. It's only a visual issue, in fact the volumes remain as they were set...just the notification slider seems to vanish

The backlight issue...is the most anoying bug present for now in ALL KitKat ROMs. I'll explain. Make a phone call (to a toll free number for ex) then take the phone away from your ear. The screen is lit right? OK, now cover the proximity sensor with the hand or finger, screen will go blank. Normal behavior...BUT... Sometimes the screen comes up after you take the hand of the sensor but remain very very dark (suggest you make the test in a dark room to notice). As the screen comes up but not the backlight of it. Make several tries with the hand covering the sensor, keep it covered several seconds...finally you'll see it.

One more thing...the bug is not happening if the phone is charging (connected via USB or power socket). It's happening only when is not connected to PC. I hope I've explained well
