Most stable Motorola Defy+ MB526 Custom ROM.

No lags, no FCs, no ringtone bug.

I did this walkthrough to a friend, so ignore obvious parts.

The first two times after installing the ROM, the battery drained very fast and with a few drops. After the third cycle the battery completely normalized.

Thanks and credits to the developers! Not to me! =)

Hello! And greetings for all good good work!

I have a rooted Motorola Defy+ MB526.
Systemversion 45.0.2310.MB526.NordicRetail.en.EU.
Android version 2.3.6
[email protected]#1
Version 4.5.1-134_DFP-231

Now i want to update to any of the 4.X.X custom ROM. I don´t care about the latest KitKat i found in this forum, what i need is the most stable 4.X.X of them all, of course the newer system the better, but most important for me is stability and less bugs. So i wonder what/wich version to recommend? And if there is a good guide how to do the flashing of that recommended ROM. And if there is possible to revert back to stock Gingerbread if something goes wrong.

Would really appreciate help with this, or if someone here is willing to help.
Thank in advance Marc.

(Note, i am noob to flashing, i have only rooted my Defy+ and my Xperia Z1 with simple one-root tools)

not sure which thread am supposed to post in but am using your 4.2.2 rom(just flashed it today)

Liking it alot but am having issues with market and play services.... services just crashes and market doesn't do anything other than ask me to reconnect... data is working fine (wifi is a little poor with regards to strength, any ideas here?)

which gapps is actually working for this rom as tried the ones in first post and have issues mentioned

never mind sorted it out you need to search for 4.2.2 minimal gapps...the link leads to 4.1.1

Buttons backlit is always ON
On Motorola Defy+ CM10 20130217 + JellyX kernel I've found that backlit of buttons is ON when display is OFF. Density of light is VERY low. It is noticeable in complete darkness only, after eyes are adapted. The better way is to use peripheral vision.

Can I turn backlit off? If no, is it fixed in latest ROM version?

UPD: On 20131030 same issue.
