What to expect:
- This is not a McCopy ROM. What goes into our build is well thought-out and not a bunch of stuff duck taped together because we could.
- maximum optimization. We do our research. We test hard. We build -fstrict -O3 globally and include a massive array of code optimizations and memory leak fixes that we write ourselves and eventually submit to AOSP or Linaro.
- originality in our source. We generate a lot of new commits being features or general code improvements. We are open source to share and improve the community but we also try to make sure we offer a unique experience.

Just a few things strike me right off the bat..

Seems to be a common thing with 4.4.2 ROMS, but themes aren't quite applying properly.
'Dark' settings in the sms messaging app doesn't work - this app stays white no matter what.
Contacts & dialer app remain white irrespective of whatever dark theme is applied.
The 'inverted' stock theme doesn't fully invert everything - white menus still pop up and it really clashes with the overall look. See pic attached.

P.S. Can the inverted stock theme be like other ROMS - i.e. it's activated by a button in the main 'settings' menu? The reason I ask is because it's better when one can activate a 'dark' button and THEN apply a dark theme on top of that - the overall 'dark' effect usually ends up being more complete.

There's a screenshot in my last post, check it out. The ROM seemed to work fine even though I didn't stick with it for long. Themes not applying properly seem to be a recurring bug with 4.4.2 ROMS so I went back to my previous ROM - for now.

Look further back on the thread - I used the version posted on the 23rd and had problems with the themes (seems to be a common thing with 4.4.2 ROMS). I also posted a screenshot.

Has anything re. themes been fixed since the 23rd?
