F.A.Q


1. What is 'Layers Manager' app included in the ROM?

The ROM has an included theme engine is different than that of CyanogenMod's Theme Engine. It's AOSP based theme engine. And it is developed by sykopompos, CalllMeAldy, bgill55
Read it further here and here.
In order to install RRO based themes, Layers Manager was born. You can download and install themes either from the themes collection thread or from the Play Store

I'm using an ordinary adsl modem for three years without any problems with other android versions.

If you are using a dhcp you need to change the modem dhcp lease time to a higher value that will prevent from disconnecting.You can use static ip but after rebooting the device you will need to set up again the settings.

Post #2 updated with partial F.A.Q

---------------------------------------------------------------


Any known bugs? I want to try this out.

If CM12.1 ROM has a certain bug, then it's this ROM's probable bug too.

Can you add theme options? I think colorful xperia theme would look great on this

See Post #2.

Camera, SMS and calendar apps should be in the rom.

As the ROM name suggests, we are keeping it really minimal. Third party apps sometimes do better job than stock apps :)
SMS app may be added in future, but I won't promise it.


Very nice to see a new active rom being developed for this phone!
How does this one compare to CM12 regarding memory usage? This is the biggest bottleneck on our phone, so...

I haven't tested memory related things yet. But it should be better than CM12.1 as the ROM has no bloat included whatsoever :)

Forgive my English, I write through translator)
Firmware is excellent, I only have two requests.
1. Add the application download
2. Have the desktop could remove search bar Google.

Hi everyone

I am new to XDA, I would like to start with a bit of a joke if it's OK with everyone :p

Camera, SMS and calendar apps should be in the rom. BTW it's great rom bro thanks.

:D Dude.., stop selling once you have made the sale :D

What I mean is that, the lack of those apps are actually more reason for me to try this rom! :)

But I also think that SMS should have been there; and may be the calculator can be dropped??

...
I have the same wifi problem that is mentioned in STE cm12.1

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=61478858&postcount=535
...

Same here, unless the phone is connected to USB (charger/PC)!!

Also I can't seem to set the home screen?? It's always the first screen no matter what I do! Am I missing something?

Thanks guys
Emon

As somsone suggested in the CM12.1 thread, is it possible to make the phone app more responsive? Answering and calling often gets laggy and is an annoyance for both caller and call receiver.
