I use this rom since november and I would like say a huge thanks for the devs who made this possible. This is far from the best rom I ever used with this phone. It's stable, fast, modern, just pure awesomeness. Without this, my life would be continues struggling with an unusable phone...
Thanks again!

I honestly think this is the ROM to have on our janice. The performance is beautiful, the battery life is decent enough, though I am still testing it. I encountered no random reboots and no freezes whatsoever. Many, many thanks to the creators of this ROM.

I have same opinion like you. But, yesterday i encountered an random reboot and after reboot my wifi was turned off ( wifi was on before reboot). I tried to put it on and it didnt work, i had to reboot again... Do you had same problem until now?

Nope, nothing like that. Everything working fine. Mind you, I debloated it, greenified most memory-hungry apps and I run Sd maid every once in a while to tidy things up. Regardless, what you describes has happened on every other ROM I've tried so I don't believe it is uncommon and I guess there might be certain circumstances under which those reboots happen.

Hello. I'm using the last update of this rom ( posted by you). I see in OP at changelog 18/06/2014 that NovaThor Settings is compatible with the rom. I would like to know which version of NovaThor Settings is compatible with the update posted by you. If you can share the apk too, will be amazing...
Thank you!
@FabioSan : Are you ignoring me? :(
@Alberto97 : Hey. Can you answer me? Any novathor settings version is compatible? Older or newer version wont cause problems?

Hello guys. I'm using this rom since 6 months (since February). The version from here (last one): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=54147880&postcount=961 .

3 months i used it with it's own kernel. Then, i started to use mk kernel since May.
At this moment, i have about 260-300 apps, including 8 xposed modules which are active. My phone is running like the first day when i flashed this rom. I'm not kidding. And i never achieved this on an kitkat rom. I don't even remember when i had last lag, seriously.

The battery is decent in my opinion. I have an 2 years old battery and i can achieve 4 hours screen on with browsing and chatting a bit. And i still have some wakelocks here and there from some apps.

The phone was running fine with own kernel from AOSP too, but with mk kernel it's even better. I don't know if you ever tried this rom, but do it now if you don't want customisations. Even if you want customisations you can use some xposed modules. And recently, i removed google apps, google services etc. Now it's even better.

I haven't tried cm by Epirex yet though, but, i can say that this rom, AOSP, it's best kitkat rom out there. And the next one is Vanir ressurection. This is my own opinion.

So, if you are looking for an kitkat rom, give a try to this one too. And for better experience, use mk kernel with it as it works without any problem.

Where can I download this MK Kernel v6.0.0 and how to instal it correctly?

The thread of mk kernel is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s-advance/orig-development/kernel-mk-kernel-t2978377 .

You download it from here: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/5i24zwz7gjvvx/3.0.101 . Go here and choose 6.0.1 ( its actually 6.0.0 after you install it). After you download it, put it on sdcard and simply flash the zip file in recovery.


@Force
You totally right.
I'm using this ROM too for quiet long and i think this is the best 4.4 kitkat rom that ever made with all meanings (battery, performance).
And with MKernel its even better!

Indeed. By the way, im thinking to make an theme for it one day :D

Some questions: which currently maintained GApps fits better? Open GApps Project is a good choice? And which package? Maybe Nano? I'm trying to keep my wife's old GT-I9070 alive...
Thanks a lot.
You can use the package that you prefer. I don't remember how much memory has the system partition, but nano and pico is well. Micro I think is too big. When I had the gt-i9070 i used the pico PA GAPPS.
