About:

This ROM is based on the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP). This was original made out of pure boredom and for personal use. After sharing it with a few people, we decided to take it a step further and turn it into something special while still having fun.
The main goal of this ROM is to have the latest and greatest features all under one ROM. The team and I, do not take any credit for any of the work that's associated with this ROM. With all due respect to those that are originally responsible for the code used in this ROM, we have simply taken something that was good and in our opinion, made it a little better.

AGAIN, please remember that this is NOT only FREE but is meant to be fun! I've chosen to share this with you guys, if you don't like it.....move along! Fanboys, trolls or whatever....find something else to do!

Question... Why did you specified we should use 4.2.1 GAPPS? Are they more reliable? I've flashed in the past 4.2.2 GAPPS on other ROMS and I got no issues (including inverted ones). Personally I prefer inverted GAPPS so I'll look for such a package but I was wondering why you said about 4.2.1

Thanks for the ROM

Re: [ROM][D.I.R.T] DirtyUnicorns 03/26/2013 [AODP][4.2.2][TD-EXCLUSIVE]
Since it has RootBox features and CM I suggest (if I may) to add the following:
- RootBox's "dark" switch
- CM's latest phone apk. That one has option to show "network event notifications" when you have an incoming diverted call for ex.
