You are welcome. :)

I really like the rom so far! Have been waiting for a good replacement for PN and except for the status bar theming issue there has been no problem at all! It's snappy, full of custumizations and battery-friendly (using EX Kernel though). I think this will be my new daily driver.

Hope more people will give it a chance, thanks for your work!
