Well. This rom is pretty smooth and fast.

Without showing any disrespect i think Cloudyfas ROMs are pretty over the top. I don't think that someone is able to get more speed out of the stock builds than him but that's it.

The thing i dislike on Cloudyfa is that he sometimes seems to vanish and he doesn't give any information about the process on updating his roms or whatever. His informations are rare sometimes but yesterday (or was it sunday?) he wrote that he's about to update his roms to 20i base.

Nevermind.

You should give this ROM here a try because it's awesome too and if you don't like it you can restore your backup.

I'm using this ROM now for several days. And I see it the same way, @Basti does. To everyone who's unsure whether to flash this one or not: just give it a try. I didn't find any bug, so far. Everything runs smooth and works as it should. @Schoolsuckz: great work. Thank you once again.

THank you my Macedonian friend. That did it. By the way, what's the pastry that's plain and huge called? It's like some sort of puff pastry they sell at coffee shops everywhere? I got one for my nephew in Skopje and he can't stop talking about it. Maybe we can make it at home :)

Haha, you're welcome. As for the pastry, I'm sorry can't help you with that since I don't really know which one you're referring to. Could be a waffle, but I doubt it.

Sorry for off- topic. Cheers.

Maybe it is a "Mekica" that is the first thing that comes to mind :) greetings from Macedonia .

Top ROM

I've been flashing roms since my first moto razr and this rom is good. It's very stable and has decent battery life. Cloudy rom is awesome but as it is running on an older version of lilpop I can't use it. The original 5.0 has a strange problem with Bluetooth cutting out momentarily while streaming music to bluetooth headsets. Very annoying if you are out running. Hence I moved on from Cloudy to this rom. To be fair lollipop battery life is a lot worse than KK. The best rom to date for me was Cloudy 1.2. However I can't be bothered going through the hassle of a downgrade.

Anyway, the point is that this is the best, most stable and up-to-date rom at the moment. Chupa-chup is also decent but I found that it became unstable after a week.

I saw that cloudy was about to put out a 2.2 version but when I checked it still hadn't been posted. I'll flash and try

@dev, do you have any idea what's the changelog of 20K? I appreciate LG for updating their software on a regular basis, but we have no idea what's improving behind the scenes.

    Sorry for the short run VikingWay users, but I've completely lost the fun to keep this rom updated.

    34ig02v.png


    welcome.png


    PLEASE READ THREAD INFO CAREFULLY AND GOOGLE ONCE OR TWICE BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS.

    VikingWay is a simple & fast rom that focuses on keeping the greatest parts of the stock experience and functionality.
    Everything that I consider as bloatware or crap is removed and I personally think it gives the rom an nice feeling.
    I just don't like the extra crap that is forced upon the user. VikingWay leaves you at a clean base with some "schoolsux touches"!!
    This is a rom I make for personal use, I just share it with you guys for fun. If you don't like changes I make or whatever, feel free to use another rom!
    Mod whatever you like yourself or enjoy VikingWay just as it is - simple, fast and solid.

    VikingWay features latest stock firmware for LG G3 with boot.img bumped, packed into a flashable.zip ready for recovery!

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************
    * Flashed, tested and working on my D855 32GB version. It should work on both 32/16GB D855 models, prove me wrong!
    * This rom does NOT include root, use TWRP root feature or download latest flashable SuperSU.zip above.
    * Installation will not wipe any personal data like app settings, cute pictures of your dog or whatever.
    * VikingWay v1.2+ is compatible with Xposed for Lollipop, be aware that this feature still has rough edges and might not work as expected.
    * I might help you, I might NOT. Your phone might go crazy and blow up your aquarium full of colorful fishes after flashing this. You know the drill.
    ********************************************************************************************************************************************

    > Download rom + optional stuff like SuperSU-root, Xposed, etc.
    > Full wipe in recovery is recommended before install. If you have problems please do a full wipe.
    > Flash rom.zip in TWRP then optional .zip packages in any order. Xposed and Lockscreen_WeatherCover addon can NOT be combined due to Xposed incompability with these LG apps. You have to choose what you want most!
    > First boot takes some minutes, but if you are stuck at bootanimation for 10+ mins (dirtyflash whoop whoop) try to pull the battery and let phone boot again! Else try to flash rom again and if that doesn't work, do a factory reset.
    > Enjoy & have a nice day.

    2015-03-8 ¤ V20i ¤ VikingWay v1.1:
    - Minor UI changes.
    - Changed default lockscreen wallpaper and added some G Flex 2 wallpapers to lockscreen as well.
    - Minor installer script changes.

    2015-03-8 ¤ V20i ¤ VikingWay v1:

    thanks.png


    @Skin1980 for livebump stuff.
    @Razertje for notifying about V20i firmware.
    @suljo94 for info about how to get Xposed working on LG firmware.
    Whoever made that nice landscape wallpaper.

    Wasn't happy with "v2.0" test after all - its trashed. I will still keep it on MEGA for a while.
    Version v1.2 released instead as planned!

    Going on vacation for a while and I think v1.2 is final for V20i firmware. Might theme LG Message somewhat in the future.. we'll see :)
    Thanks to everyone for helping out eachother and showing interest in my rom so far!!

    Lockscreen Weather/Cover addon package added for those who rather want this functionality instead of Xposed!
    A: You didn't flash the Xposed package > Just flash the WeatherCover zip. (Download in OP.)
    B: You flashed Xposed, but want lockscreen weather and cover support > Flash whole rom again to remove Xposed files from system + flash WeatherCover.zip.
