Cool WARNING!
NOTE:
  • Keep in mind that this are early Beta builds!!!!!! Means bugs can happen. So please only use this builds if you want to help us and iron out the bugs with proper bug-reports etc.

  • If you get error while flashing, go to advanced->reboot to recovery and flash again.

  • If you get SU issues, flash SuperSU v1.80.zip from chainfire's thread.



BUG REPORTING

When you submit a bug-report, you want to make sure that nothing from your side is causing it. Otherwise we might be hunting a bug which doesn't really exist.


The best way to achieve this is by doing the following.
  • Make a nandroid backup.
  • Perform a full wipe (factory reset + wipe /system) Now we have two different ways depending on what kind of problem you're having.

  • When you're having a problem with a ROM function, flash just the ROM without GAPPS, and boot back into the system. You will boot directly onto the home-screen.

  • When you're having a problem with a 3rd party app in combination with our ROM then flash the ROM and GAPPS.

  • Boot now back into the system. You will boot to the setup wizard. Log in to your Google account but make sure that you untick "Restore from my Google Account to this phone/tablet". Finish the setup and open the playstore and download only the app you're having problems with.

  • Start a logcat recording and reproduce the bug (if possible more than once) while taking the logcat. If you don't know how to get a logcat read this tutorial or this.

  • Post the logcat in a text file (this is important because you otherwise clog up the threads with your log) in the correct thread. Please also write detailed description how we can reproduce the bug.
  • Restore your backup from point 1 and wait for a fix (PLEASE don't ask for ETAs).

I will answer for part 1 only .

1a.To clear all; use 2 fingers and pinch

1b.For slow animation ; dont kill app, if you kill an app that have a service the service will restart and it is the worst thing to do.

Sorry for the long absence.

Two things:

1. THANK YOU, team, for another awesome release.

2. Regarding the dreaded Caller UI lag, for the life of me, I won't take that ”low end device” tripe again; it's simply not true. It's just bad coding on Google's part. Yes, SGS 1 has less RAM, but the exact same delay is present on all the newer/newest devices. I saw it on SGS 2, 3, 4 and Note 3.

Well, three.
What can we do to minimize the caller UI lag?
First off, keep your number of running apps at a minimum. Facebook is a major culprit, and so are most of the messaging clients (WhatsApp, Chat, SlimIRC & so on).
Avoid using Hangouts as an SMS app. It's a hog.
Disable/uninstall YouTube, Google Play (remanence), Google Plus, Google Now, Dash Clock and any other crap that wants to ”keep awake” your phone. Oh, also get rid of Greenify and manage your apps via permissions: it's much more effective.
In doing so, I now get my Caller UI faster than my son's SGS 4....

Cheers all!

Thanks for this informative post, but it would be great if you could explain the Greenify thing you said with an example.
