There isn't any such sim network problem for second sim..
See below screenshot..
Try switching airplane mode on for few seconds and put it off again...
Check network..

Remove your sims, reinsert and reboot.. Check again..
Hope it works.. :good:

buddy apps storing data on sdcard0 which is internal memory and not on sdcard1 memory card ... :confused:

In all KitKat, apps gets stored in internal sdcard by default..
You need to swap sdcard for that, which will make yr external sdcard as default memory and will remove internal memory from storage..
You need to use swap patch if you want to do it.

But trust me.. I am not using any swap, I have 116 apps installed..
Still it's working smooth... :good:

    I do respect the GPL, but using someone else's work without proper credits is just LACK OF RESPECT.

    The inclusion of this kernel in other [future] ROMS is NOT allowed.
    --> Instead add a link to this thread as a recommendation on your thread.

    I Don't support KANGS!

    So please Show some respect, when using qus1 and my commits and patchs, as well as the commits i added from other Dev's (with proper credits/ git authorization)

    Fail to comply and i will drop this project


    Rules

    - Don't ask for ETA (that's rude), i do work for an living, and this things are very time consuming.
    - Search in the thread, before asking something, Keep of the spamm
    - Be Polite
    - Don't ask me to "port" the rom and Kernel to Phone "x", im already maintaining this rom and kernel (and i don't own this device)

    A: On the dialer : *#*#3646633#*#*

    Q: What Can i do, on the MTK Engineering Menu?
    A: The Engineering Menu, should be for Advanced users only, there's several things you can do.
    a) Increase The volume speaker volume: >hardware testing>Audio>LoudSpeaker Mode> And set MAX Vol with an max value of 160 (145 as safe)
    b) The same options, as in JellyBean MTK Eng Menu.

    Q: What are the Partitions Layouts usable on This ROM/KitKat ?
    A: BOTH Partitions are usable (Stock and Extended), however on stock Partition Layout, the Internal SDCard can´t be used as is not visible due to the new KitKat fstab (partition table)

    Requirements:

    - New CWM or TWRP Recovery
    --> I Recommend This One


    - Extended Internal UserData Partition (due to the new KK fstab, the internal Memory can't be mounted)
    (Users with stock Partition Layout, can still flash this rom, however the internal SDCard can't be used

    Installation / Flashing Procedure:



    • - Put the rom on the EXTERNAL SD Card
    • - FULL Wipes are mandatory (Cache/dalvik/Data/System)
    • - Flash the ROM

    • -If you wish, reboot to the recovery first, and flash the SuperSU.zip in order to ROOT the Device (ROM isn't rooted as default), After flashing the supersu.zip, reboot the Phone, Say "NO" IF the Recovery Promp about Root not instaled/damaged
      [*]--> You can find the latest SuperSU Root .zip HERE

    NOTE:

    If you can't change the Runtime from Dalvik to ART, its due to the Xposed Framework
    If you have Xposed Installed, it'll AUTO-Change the Runtime to Dalvik every time the phone Boots.
    If you really want to use ART, You'll need to unistall the Xposed Framework (This is related with the Xposed Itself, there's nothing i can do about that ...)

    Merry XMAS ;)
