Resurrection Remix ROM for Samsung Galaxy Alpha
I ported RR successfully to my device, so I want to share the self-compiled build with the Custom ROM Community! :fingers-crossed:
The ROM has been based on many projects like AOKP, CM, PA,OMNI and original Remix ROM. In this way, an awesome combination of performance, customization, power and the most new features are brought directly to your device. Many things that in previous versions were tweaked with mods, are now included by default in the ROM. I hope that you enjoy the new features which won't be available in original CyanogenMod builds.
This ROM reached the ALPHA status - this means that the most basic things are working. But there are still some problems left which have to be solved by me or by one of the other devs. At the bottom of this post, you can find all features of RR Custom ROM.
