If the audio is working as it should, I really wanna give it a try.

But I'm wondering the downsides of this ROM. Maybe low stability, maybe low battery life and maybe poor performance...

Any infos?

    I just discovered your screenshots very carefully.
    It looks like you using same device tree like KnoneNull. Moreover you used same CM sources KnoneNull.
    Plus blob files was taken from WW 3.23.40.60. (Like KnoneNull builds)
    So i think that it is a modificated build by KnoneNull.
    In addition i would like to say that other information (ex. date of rom building) can be edited in the buils.prop without any problems.
    I asked ur age because I feel ur comments slightly underage words. They are rather demoralizing than productive. I wanted to ask how you deducted that much of info but I really refrain doing teenage drama.
    BTW IF it was based on knones then network selection menu won't have worked bro.

    You need to stop being competitive and pointing fingers. Rather share what u know and learn what others know.
    SHARING IS CARING.

    P. S. I am not a developer of any kind, I just said that as a sociological conduct.
