Been testing this rom all day now, No random reboots, plenty of customisation available and everything runs smoothly, besides the SU issue there arent any. Only wish I have for this rom is Double Tap 2 wake instead of the S2W but thats just me. I will say however if you enable torch via power button while the screen is off you may have to do a battery pull, and even if you dont your phone will become very laggy.

Have been Testing for almost 6-7 hours. TB restored my apps. Activated most of them, some of them runs background services.

So far NO random reboots or unresponsive dead-screen issues.

It's very customizable, have many options for customizing . Awsomee!


I come across with, the super-Su issue, thanks to "thekool"; it's fixed. No problems with this.


The only issue remained is the Camera .Open camera app and exit, ROM comes laggy for some time and It's goes on even after killing the process from "recent apps".

I hope there won't any issues.. I'll continue to testing this ROM :) IT'll be my dailyroom, if it's goes stable like this.


Thanks for your work dude, Hope it'll be updated soon!

Cheerss!

I think I might find a new bug :) Dunno whether anyone come across with it :)

Sometimes, When I changed my battery, the touch screen doesn't respond any of my touches at PIN-Enter screen.

After 2-3 times pulling the battery and boot again, It fixes itself and the screen comes responsive :)

Hmm I never found that, but then again, I never use pin lockscreen :p

I don't understand why this rom hasn't gotten a lot of attention. This is arguably one of the most customizable roms there is. And SOO stable.
-halo
-aokp ribbons
-aokp quick settings
-hide statusbar and swipe to reappear
-power widgets

and my personal favorite right now.....chevron targets!!!!!!

:)
I love this rom!

It's clever to don't use pin lockscreen. :) Now I disabled it, too. Hope the bug won't occur again :)

Yea I do not understand this too, maybe people love or got used to buggy roms more than stable ones :p lol

For anyone having the issue with the rom becoming laggy after opening the camera if you flash this 4.3 Jelly Bean Camera via recovery your problems may be resolved. I seem to have no issues. It also removes the majority of the Green screen bug after taking a photo It seems it must of been a fluke with the green screen issue. It still occurs but everything else is still good! :D

Hey dude;

Thanks for your practical solutions for such bugs :)

The ROM is Perfect, you make it more perfect :))

I've got a question, how can we flash this APK file via recovery ? :)

I use 4ext but it couldn't flash it, I changed the extension of file to ".zip" It doesn't affect :)

Also I tried to install apk, It couldn't be installed :)


Could you please fill us in ? :)

love this rom but i have one request....could there be a way to boost the speaker volume? I hate to compare roms but viper rom uses the sony volume booster in some way that makes the speaker volume very good and loud. I only request it so that I can actually hear my phone ringing if I am a little distance away from it or in my pocket...thanks
