Definitely nice work. It is CRAZY smooth & fast! Since I reverted to Emmanuals JellyBean DS 1.7 due to the text message issue, I miss the quick speed! haha Emmanual, is that the next best (stable) ROM you have?
Regarding the text message issue: Its noticed via the stock SMS app, built in. No 3rd party. When I send the test email text to the phone I can see the toast message indicating it couldnt download it. Then it never shows up in the SMS app.
Regarding the black screen on email issue: I figure it's because the email was HTML formatted, and likely uses the same HTML APIs that the stock browser uses, and that gets the black screen too. Deal breaker as well, since I can't read 1/2 my emails
As far as I'm concerned though, despite these minor issues, it's a solid ROM!
