I have cm 11 nightly version 20140101 on my i9000 and it's by far the best rom I've found. It's sleek, light, fast, user friendly and consists of very few bugs.

incoming call transparant
I don't know whether this is the right thread to post in but I do have an annoyance to report.

Is it intended for the incoming call screen to be transparent as below.

AFAIK its a solid black since ICS??

I was given my Galaxy S by my brother and have only used it to play with so far, my prime use, apart from as a phone, was to have been as a replacement for my stand alone TomTom satnav.
I have tried many many roms but the satellite lock on time has been far far to long so the phone was always kept in the drawer. I have now resurrected the Galaxy S and played with both KitKat roms released by ts1506 as well as EHNDROIX IV 14.1.1. I have to say that with EHNDROIX IV 14.1.1 installed, with TomTom maps, satellite lock on is now virtually the same as with my TomTom 950 and I am now at last using my Galaxy S daily. I am now a very happy chappie indeed.

Both Roms by ts1506, regarding satellite fix times, are also very very good it's just that I installed EHNDROIX IV 14.1.1 last.

May I also add that by visiting this great forum I have certainly learned a lot and it has certainly brought me many happy hours in my retirement.

I use CyanogenMod 11.0 by ADC-Team - Alpha 3 (EOL) - Kernel 3.4.x since yesterday. So far the fastest ROM I used.

Only issues are that some Apps like eg. MixZing don't work, hope that there will be a cure to this soon.
