Bugs, issues, and limitations
• Force close on any web app when you click drop-down bars on websites. • Clock color defaults to transparent after install giving the impression that no clock is displayed in the status bar. Change clock color in emanoN settings > Interface > Status bar tweaks > Clock Tweaks • Lock screen wallpapers (Settings > Display > Wallpapers) do not work on any lock screens • Custom home screen wallpaper images (Settings > Display > Wallpapers) are not cropped properly • Lock screen settings and options only works with CM lock screens • Meizu lock screen displays "Connect your charger" when plugged in or connected • Artist and song information in Music app > Artist tab are not displayed • Some status bar tweaks settings are not immediately taking effect (deselect and reselect options and/or re-start status bar as a work around) • Some settings are intentionally disabled for the meantime until I figure out how they work
