Slim7 is not pre-rooted?
I couldn't find this either while trying this ROM in my multiboot environment. Installed SuperSu (sr5) however, and it works fine!
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=55256620
Edit: the rom is really slim... Guess that the purpose of it. There's not even an advanced reboot menu in the developer options...
Navigation bar settings giving me a forced close.

Advanced reboot is usually under "Security" in slim.

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately not found... @Silesh.Nair:I love your dualboot! CyanMod as my base and a second or third environment to test roms! One flaw though. If I messed up a secondary rom too much and it won't boot anymore, it's good to have a backup! There's no way to choose in recovery what rom to boot...

Ok, gave this rom a good try. All major things work properly. Didn't detect any random reboots, or whatever! Some things as still missing though:
1. An advanced reboot option.
2. The option to edit the navigation bar.
3. An option to toggle the led off while charging the phone.
4. Maybe pre-root the rom?

    You can do that by flashing the dualboot utilities zip file.
