Some hints:

1. Be sure you are on latest CWM or TWRP recovery!!!!!!

2. Not all gapps packages right now are nice working. You can try others but at least I know that the one linked here is working. If you have other gapps which are working you can link it here of course

3. Full wipe when coming from any 4.3 or 4.4 rom (as well format system manually please)

Reporting Bugs

When you submit a bug you want to make sure that nothing from your side is causing it. Otherwise your developer might be hunting a bug which doesn't really exist.

The best way to achieve this is by doing the following.

1. Make a nandroid backup.

2. Perform a full wipe (factory reset + wipe /system)
Now we have two different ways depending on what kind of problem you're having.

3a. When you're having a problem with a ROM function, flash just the ROM without GAPPS etc. and boot back into the system. You will boot directly onto the homescreen.

3b. When you're having a problem with a 3rd party app in combination with our ROM then flash the ROM and GAPPS.
Boot now back into the system. You will boot to the setup wizard.
Log in to your Google account but make sure that you untick "Restore from my Google Account to this phone/tablet".
Finish the setup and open the playstore and download only the app you're having problems with.

4. Start a logcat recording and reproduce the bug (if possible more than once) while taking the logcat. If you don't know how to get a logcat read this tutorial or this.

5. Post the logcat in a txt file (this is important because you otherwise clog up the threads with your log) in the correct thread.
Please also write detailed description how we can reproduce the bug.

6. Restore your backup from point 1 and wait for a fix (don't ask for ETAs).

    so guys....seems to be that I need to clarify something


    1. this is an alpha version for a good reason......testing things, optimizing things etc etc. Bugs can happen bugs cannot happen depends on what we try.

    2. We have now an officially unsupported device. That means way harder time for all of us!!!!!!! You can really be happy that in such a short time the main things are working.

    3. To say switch to another rom is the worst advice ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How do you think we can solve any problems without proper reports??????? If you guys really search a perfect daily driver....do not switch to 4.4 at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. I see so much roms and commits which are using slims device tree for tuna....but ya switching rom is the solution

    5. As neb said CM did nothing.....this is a google fix and included since last 2 builds

    6. about features yes they come step by step........we recode a lot parts we are not a kanger rom.....although some seems to think that :( Interesting that tons of our features are included in other roms

    7. guys I need for the reboots more logs please from latest build to see what reason is left. Thanks :)

    sorry guys but the last pages pisses me partly of. Roms are living because of the community and help. This way roms scene will die due that no developer has the patience to do it further more.

    cheers


    PS. any yeah the big menu button a lot lot guys requested to have it back is the surprise ;) we had endless discussions about it lol :D

    slims privacy guard completly fixed
    volume options
    safe headset volume option
    2 fixes in google code regarding inversive mode
    some minor fixes

    so stay tuned

    about the gpu problems...still same only minor imporvements internaly...good thing more and more devs are working on it. tuna is not the only device with this problem....just nice to see that now other devices in our team as well in other teams with omap4 are getting 4.4. The more devs we have the more hope is for a together worked out solution
