It's a shame there won't be anymore updates, however I think R1.1 will tide me over until I upgrade again, many thanks to Jamal for the hard hard. it's a great rom. :good:

Also I agree with Jamal, the Knox update is the end road for allot of long time Samsung users, they may gain some business users but they will lose the enthusiasts who like the tinker and that is a mistake.

That said, Touchwiz interface is enough to put me off buying another Samsung phone, it's just awful now and it lags. :(

Nope, tried every other USB port and used two new cables with same result. I think I must have accidently locked my bootloader when I was playing with JODIN which is a Odin Heimdall offshoot. The fail message contains something ''boot loader & AUTH". I know you can lock and unlock your boot loader using ADB. Can someone send me the command to use or better still, a link that gives instructions for using ADB. Thanks to anyone that can help.

Why would somebody want it? It makes no sense to update.

since you asked, I did. for me, if u don't care about warranty like me, new bootloader is not an issue and irrelevant . and only side benefit I can see of new bootloader is u can update to latest LTE modems. old Bootloader you cannot as I understand. for me, my wifi very good now, and rom speed and battery is v. good...

You can update to the newest lte modem but that's all. You have no benefit from having the newest. It's not always the best. But I must add that I don't care about lte. Dataplans are way to expensive and hspa is fast enough. And if you had other issues they are not because of the bootloader but rom, kernel or modem.
Even if you don't care about warranty it just makes no sense.

Quite an irrelevant discussion you are trying to have here :p

You are saying that modem can be important for the ROM. New bootloader gives you a bigger choice of modems; so this CAN be better ;)

Also I heard (not sure) that the new bootloader let's you charge without the phone booting. This can be an advantage.

Again, for people like me, who have warranty no matter the bootloader version or e-fuse flags (jeah Netherlands!), it doesn't give a *** which bootloader we have. So why not use the latest? It might not be better per se, but it might be just as well.. ;)

Your mixing something up. Gsm modem is important not lte modem. And you can flash all gsm modems on old bootloader.
But yes you're right with charging.

I've suddenly got a problem with the Camera on this rom. It was fine, then out of no where I can't record video anymore. When I launch the camera app, pictures are fine, but when I go to video record mode, it stays black for a few seconds and then the camera app force closes. If I switch to front camera before it crashes, I can record video with the front camera.

I've tried disabling xposed, I've updated kernel and wiped cache/dalvik.

I don't understand what could cause this, any idea?

Everything else works perfectly.

    1. Why does touch to focus in HDR mode not working?
    - It's Samsung's fault, because they don't include it into their Google Edition KitKat Rom and the source for that feature isn't available yet. As soon as the source is available it'll be implemented into this Rom.
    2. Why does the SView Cover call acception/decline not working?
    - Same answer as above.​

    3. How can I get battery percentage, reboot menu or expandable volume menu (and other features)?
    - Install Xposed Framwork + Gravitybox. Then check Gravitybox in modules section in Xposed app and click on Download/Update Framework in Xposed App, then reboot. After rebooting you can add/change everything in Gravitybox App.
    4. How can I get Camera app to save pictures directly to SD Card?
    - Install Xposed Framwork + Pictures2SD. Same procedure like in point 4.
    5. Why is ART not working?
    - Uninstall Xposed, since Xposed isn't compatible with ART.​
    6. Who i can Download Mods for this ROM?
    - Show here - Click Here - Post #4

    Special Thanks to the good Member for creating this good FAQ @HaGii :)
