 * 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.
Unitrix Kernel for VINCE​

Designed to provide a good balance between battery life and perfomance providing( I prefer performance over battery)
the only needed and useful features, so just flash and forget. Also it will include upstreaming to latest android linux stable
for security and stability as well as CAF patches.

This was just my hobby at start but now I think this can be open to other users as well so I can know how it is( what bugs there are, if any) and get different view points .
