Hey I wanted to try out v2.2 but it installed script successfully but it's in endless boot.... does not get past Samsung logo.....I done full factory reset and cache and dalvik. ..running touch Cwm. ... any help???

That happened to me the only way to fix is download official 4.3 update and flash through odin. It will reset device back to defaults so you need to flash recovery again. But you will be able to install v2.2. After that

here is my feedback..great rom and am getting what it feels like to be fast and smooth for the first time on any Archiport based rom.
it was very heavy and unusable for at least one hour after the initial boot until i overclocked it to 1.8 Ghz.
YouTube is fine here but cant get the video player to start and the camera also crashes with any other mode other than the normal still images (i use google camera, so this doesnt matter).
i had to disable or uninstall a hell of apps using TB..that includes greenify and clean master as there were consuming about 30 MB ram and making things worse when they run in the background.
also, some apps were getting killed in the background so i had to convert them to system apps.
not facing any FCs or reboots except for the phone app that quits sometimes.

It's alright this thread isn't as bad as the user's of my magiorom lol.

I'm going to start digging into the code of this rom see what bugs I can fix ? I've never decompiled touchwiz before so this will be fun lol

The solution is to install a older version of youtube like 4.5.17. This one is working fine but you dont get the latest app functions as known.
But its working anyway and supports HD video. Thats all we need. Cheers

(another alternative is VIRAL Youtube Player app... I digged this one, it has lots of functions and customizations plus windowed video display and background play... Its very nice too, give this one a shot. It works on this rom flawlessly)

Thanks. Older version works fine :)

Update YouTube to latest version, Force stop it, Clear data then reboot.

works well here!

USome people dont have any issues. I'm with new CyanogenMod (4.4.2) M7 for I9300 now but im focused on this rom too.

Made a Nandroid Backup just in case.

Main flaws i found were the unbalanced stereo in video recording, youtube server problem, some not so frequent FC and since i was using Boeffla Kernel some graphical glitches when scrolling through app drawer, but i needed the sound tuning of that kernel. If Googy Max kernel worked on this one i could Dual Boot between CM and this one... But Boeffla doesnt have Dual Boot function so i can only use one rom.

And for now CM 11 dont have any of these issues.

Better days will come.

I have issued lagging when pressing home button while loading home screen on much 4.4.2 sammy ROMs. I mean it takes much time to load the widgets and so on...
Is this fixed in this ROM, or is it the same like in others?

Thanks for all the hardwork in getting us Galaxy S5 ROM experience.
After using FlashingROM for more than a week, I am planning to revert back to android 4.3 . It is too much laggy especially the dialer and keyboard. It takes ages to start hence and cannot be used as a daily ROM.

Hoping to see newer version better and smoother.

Because it's based on ArchiPort that mean n7100 ROM (ported for i9300)
==> n7100 had 2GB RAM | i9300 had 1GB RAM ... SO:
==> You should manage rom by using apps like greenify then you see the result! ;)

I have tried the V2.2 and get too many force close even if I have installed greenify.. The reboot may be due to ram management.
I then return back to V2.1 wich is the best 4.4.2 ROM so far. No force close, ram management great....
Only issue is how to fix wallpaper choosing......

  1. Make sure greenify services is on (Settings > PERSONALIZATION > Accessibility > SERVICES)
  2. Also active xposed and greenify modules then choose "Boost Mode" in Experimental Features
  3. Add more apps for hibernate :)
