// ETA RULES

There is an epic list about ETA rules you should read

  • If you ask him when it'll be uploaded, he'll tell you either the same time or a later time. NEVER earlier
  • read that again. He will NEVER upload it earlier if you ask him. Asking him when it will be uploaded does not make it arrive earlier
  • If it is uploaded earlier than he says, it's not because you asked him. Because he will upload it when it's ready which will not be just because you asked
  • who actually cares when it will be ready? He has given screenshots of it being compiled and screenshots of it running. It works. He won't forget.
  • It's a ROM for your phone, worry about other things
  • If you ask for ETAs, his upload speed will not magically increase
  • If you know when it'll be uploaded, how does this actually benefit you?
  • Read a book
  • Listen to some music
  • enjoy the ROM you've got
  • stop asking for ETAs
  • If he uploads it tonight then it'll be uploaded. If he doesn't then it won't
  • If he says no then it won't be. If he says yes then it will be the same as whatever ETA he gave before
  • Learn to code or something
  • Please stop asking for ETAs
  • aww man I've been forced to write a non development related post in a dev thread because ETA requests annoy me so much
  • aww man I forgot when development work was actually discussed in dev threads because of all the ETA requests

Thanks for the rom! Going to test it out today!

Update: I've tested this rom for less than a day. So far it's rom fairly smooth, not too many hiccups. I think I ran into a force close when I tried to change the wallpaper (no biggy). Keyboards work for me, wifi, sms, mms. So far so good.
