Implementing the languages is not really hard. Decompile settings.apk and cmparts.apk, add the language folders from another decompiled Roms apks and most of your stuff will be in your language. The rest of the apps only contains little bits and pieces here and there.

If you want to use the proper Hackers keyboard, yes you would have to redownload it.

Well, I had Polish characters after fresh installation of your ROM. That's why I called its disapperance "mystery"
Then I reinstalled hackerskeyboard.
After couple of days, it reverted itself to English as the only input method - even though only Polish is still marked.
In fact, the characters are that of English keyboard regardless of the input language I select.
Again, reinstallation of hackerskeyboard makes it back to normal.
Not a big deal, I can reinstall HK every few days, but am just curious aboust the cause of such behaviour?

Well that is not just a mystery to you, but me as well

Did you uninstall it properly, or just deleted the apk? There might be something left of the old app. SdMaid is a good tool to take care of such problems.

Finally i was able to flash the rom and its perfect....thanks to jayOOmjay and the OP of course in helping me to resolve my problem. Now how do I get rid of these annoying game ads pop ups that appear too frequently? I have tried adfree and adaway but they don't seem to help. Any help in this?

As I don't play much games, I can't give you any definitive advice. I use adfree and it works just fine for me.

I know there used to be an xposed module, which is now discontinued, called minguard (or something similar), which worked great.
Disconnecting from the internet, or restricting internet access via afwall or lbe works for some games as well.

This is not true, I remember MinMinGuard working quite well on my phone
It also appears that MinMinGuard is continued in some way. Just have a look here...

No, I didn't uninstall the keyboard - just reinstalled it over the previous one (so the Polish was still marked as the input language after reinstallation). As the Polish characters are gone again, have just given a chance the SDMaid to uninstall the keyboard. In a few days I shall know if that makes any difference (in this case I mean

thanks wooaarr for this nice rom - a godsent.

question about hosts: can the system handle such a large hosts file?
doesn't it become outdated quickly? so the idea is to manually update it?
any recommends on that, is the list specialised for android phones?

is it possible to further de-googlify and minimise? i don't use the play store or any google services at all, could i just remove these:
Code:
google calendar sync
google contacts sync
google partner setup
google play services
google play store 
google services framework
com.android.provision
DRM protected content sorage
pico tts
tts service
fm radio
is this rom somehow "more GPL" than cyanogenmod itself, or why did you add that to the thread title?

there's no criticism anywhere here, only appreciation! i'm just inquisitive.

bikeshed:
any themes recommendations (flat and minimal and working properly on mini/ldpi)?

edit: oh, i just noticed that you included gapps... so can i just remove everything that starts with google...?

I never had any troubles with large host files. I know that Crossbreeder used a different, dynamic method. Honestly, my approach was always "Why complicate things?". The hosts file is working perfectly and I for one, cannot find any difference in terms of speed...
I used Adfree from BigTinCan to update the hosts file.

Of course, everything that contains a Google in it's name is safe to remove. Have a look at this.

Nah it is not. I remember a time when the moderators wanted the GPL in the thread title. I didn't want to bother with any of the license stuff, so I just included it...

I always used plain CyanogenMod, so I can't really help you there, sorry.

this one i suppose.
i will check it out.
i think the best (least resource-hungry) would be to update the hosts file only manually. those ad-spammers are inventing new domains all the time, but there's no need to run a daemon for that.

thanks.
took me a while to realise i had to install another app to remove system apps.
now i'm happy.
btw, this list you linked, does that mean that other (default install) apps are NOT safe to remove? there was a few that still caught my eye, e.g. that drm-content thing...
