The main idea behind SuperNexus is to provide Vanilla Android experience, just like on Google's Nexus devices, to non-nexus devices. SuperNexus is entirely built from Google's AOSP Source. A lot of improvements and optimizations have been done to the Google's Source Code to have the best possible Vanilla Android Experience. SuperNexus is very light too as there are no 3rd party apps (ZERO Bloatware).

Big thanks to TeamHacksung (Donate To Them) as I'm using their Device Tree and SoC related patches in my SuperNexus ROM. Thanks to CyanogenMod Team (CM) as many features are cherry-picked from their source code.

First of all, thanks Faryaab for this. It's great to have some AOSP on the iI9500.

So far, the bugs that I have had are:
-A few random reboots.
-The gallery can't open .jpg.
-Can't take photos or record video.
-When manually blocked, the soft buttons keep lighted up until the screen timeout is reached.

I haven't tried calling so I can't say anything for that.

Thanks again, looking forward to the next builds!
