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. Hard. A lot.

Some personal thoughts:
-consider this as a beta release for testing and improving the things;
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation;
- bug reports without device variant and logs can't be considered bugs - make sure you provide detailed info when reporting bugs;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- feel free to donate to me if you want to support my work;
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

How about bugs?
This is a port rom so expect some bugs due to the fact that all features and mods including in this rom are supposed to be running on a device with a different hardware structure. However i tried to fix most of the issues and provide a rom for daily use.
Major issues for your info:


  • camera focus from time to time
  • NFC (on A500F it works, testers reported not working)
  • BLF not working
  • Hard keys light
  • test and report

Things that will never work and i won`t bother to fix:
  • VoLTE
  • VoWIFI
  • FMRadio
  • Native blur

FAQ
Q: Sound quality is low, what to do?
A: Go into Settings>Sound>Sound quality and effects>Advanced, move all the equalizer dots on top to 10db and back to 0db. Equalizer will reset now. You need to do this only once for any playback output (headphones, speaker, bluetooth).

Q: Phone is asking to reboot because sim changed, what should i do?
A: Reboot once and see if it appears again. If yes reboot again.

Q: Phone asks to wipe data because operator changed, should i wipe?
A: Try to cancel and just reboot. If you can't do that or the popup still appear, reflash the rom and wipe from aroma installer.

Q: My mac address has changed, how can i get original one back?
A: Install Change my mac and restore original mac address. Please do note i am not responsable for any of your legal or less legal actions.

    since the open topic is logic it is known that it should be updated
    Since we use should word, you should be thankful you have this rom, you should press the thanks button, you should donate to me maybe...
    But since you don't do any of mentioned, you should mind your own business and keep your logic for yourself. How about that?
