Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q: I just got an OTA update notification. Can/should I take it?
A: No! This ROM is a port - which means it is already modified just so it will work on our devices. Even if the OTA didn't fail because you have a custom recovery (which it will), it wouldn't boot as-is anyway. Wait until the ROM base is updated into a flashable format by the ROM maintainer, and then flash it - that's the only way to have the latest software. What you CAN do which would be very helpful is to capture a copy of the OTA zip. This file is typically named "update.zip" and usually downloads to /cache or /sdcard/Download. Then the ROM maintainer can use that file to update the base.
Q: How do I update profile/PRL on this ROM?
A: Profile and PRL can only be updated on a Sense ROM. Since GPE is a port from GSM, it doesn't include these features. The easiest way to update Profile/PRL is to nandroid your current setup, restore a Sense nandroid (or flash a stock rooted Sense ROM), update those items, and then restore your GPE nandroid. MultiROM is also an option.
Q: I can't find Developer options. Where are they?
A: Google has them hidden by default. To activate them, navigate to Settings -> About phone, scroll to the bottom, and tap "Build number" seven times.
Q: I toggled Mobile Network in the Quick Settings and now I have no data connection. How to fix?
A: First of all, there is no Mobile Network toggle in the ROM by default - if you have one, it means you're using GravityBox (GB). If you're going to use the toggle from GravityBox, you have to set it to "Use CDMA network modes" in the GB settings (Statusbar Tweaks -> QuickSettings management -> Tile specific settings -> Network mode tile settings). If you toggle it before you change that setting, you will end up on a GSM Network mode, and thus have no data connection. To get back to a working connection, follow the instructions at the bottom of this post. This post also has some additional information for a fully working GravityBox toggle.
Q: I tried switching to ART in Developer options, but when it rebooted, it was set back to Dalvik. How do I get ART to stick?
A: Disable the Xposed framework. Xposed is currently incompatible with ART. More information here.
Q: Can I use a custom kernel with this ROM?
A None of the existing custom GPE M8 kernels will work as-is. However, I was able to modify flar2's ElementalX GPE test kernel build for 4.4.3 to work on this ROM. It can be downloaded here. That is currently the only custom kernel that will work with this ROM.
