* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Read the whole OP! Be respectful to each other and don't ask for ETAs, it's considered as being rude!

Samsung splash screen slowly turns white and then reboots and then again and so on.
Flashed Eureka v8 and it boots now. But it crashes often.. probably due to overclock...
