Your warranty is now void. 
I am not responsible for any issues you may have with your device after using this 
rom, plain and simple, it is in beta status and will have issues.

This ROM is ONLY compiled by me, Scott.Hart.bti has done all the real work!Thank Him!!

**Flash at your own risk** I am a BUDDING developer and probably can't fix an issue if you face one but I'll surely try to help if i can!I DO NOT OWN THIS DEVICE.I have a LWW so pls bear with me.I originally built this for myself & now wish to share it with everyone. Enjoy! !

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.

Im going to say this once and only once... I am doing this for fun. It is my CHOICE to share my work with everyone. If you decide that you do not like my work, good for you.. Move on and flash something else. I will not tolerate ungrateful people in my thread.***

this rom is surprisingly fast, Beanstalk never disappoints me in terms on performance and feature filled.
this is is fast as AORP.

the only problem i encounter now so far is the browser fc.

EDIT: after using about 1 hr, and rebooting, always fc.
with some bug fix, this will again the best rom for our device.

please devs, this is a rom worth maintaining for. the performance and smoothness of this rom is far beyond.
specially the features.
