Ok I tried this rom today .. and wow this is the only cm based rom so far I have tried which has different sound profile for headphone and speaker.. which means suppose u are listening to a music via speaker in max volume ..now as and when u plug an earphone the volume will automatically decrease and thus saves you from hearing very high sound accidentally.. just like stock samsung rom .. but only problem I found that speaker sound does distorts in full volume .. I turned off audio fx but that also didn't helped .. I request developer to fix this in next update

I want to move from tw based roms to cm based ones..
Main reason- FREAKING POOR RAM MAMAGEMENT there.. open 2 apps and opening 3rd will slow down the phone... its always 1.5 gigs filled ( i know its not a bad thing as ram consumes same power no matter no much its filled but still.. seeing 800mb+ free feels like a dream )

So I want to try this rom
Questions--
1) how is ram management??
2) any force closes? No sound bug?
3) anyone tried it voltaqe kernel/xposed? ( i know developer says dont do it - sorry firebird, but still?:p )
Thanks in advance.
And kudos to developer.. i read all the previous chats and this looks pretty good rom.
4th) almsot forgot it..
How is battery life? Both screen on and screen off drain.. i need a exquisite blend of battery and performance so i read "no lags" here somehwere.. that kinda made me start thinking for battery life..

Ringtone and notification volume is still too loud in headphone in max vol..I have seen this in all cm based rom tried so far .. I guess this is coming from cm source ..

I have tried this rom again today and I've found some issues with it:

1. I can't find the temperature setting for the weather. Should be in Celsius.

2. On full screen apps, it's very hard to show the notification drawer, compared to other roms.

3. Like all other roms I've tried for I9500, this rom has issues with the camera : takes mirrored photo in "selfie", and also has distorted preview on "selfie" when using Google-camera-app.

4. People who talk to me via a phone call say they hear themselves twice. It happened to 2 people so far. Please fix this issue.

Overall, seems quite a stable rom, but will need to use it more to see how it goes.
