Good to see more ROMs come over to the S4. Glad to have more alternatives.

Edit: fwiw, I loved the 4.1.2 version of this ROM. Never tried the 4.2, one on the S2. Never felt any 4.2 based ROM was stable enough.

Great
Customization in this rom is awesome and the size of it is tiny compared to stock. Applying lockscreen from different themes however does something weird to lockscreen
