In case there are few of you that dont like the bootanimation and dont know how to change it follow up below

Changing Bootanimation (Manually)
To use this method, you will need a file manager app with Root access. In this quicktip, we will be using the Root Browser app.

1. Download a custom boot animation you want to use by choosing the animation you want to use and downloading the associated bootanimation.zip file. (Here is another place to find custom animations to use.)

2. Open Root Browser (or your file manager) app and once inside, locate your original boot animation file (bootanimation.zip) in /system/media.
system-media.jpg


3. Long-press the file, choose Rename and name it to bootanimation.zip1 or bootanimation.zip.bak
http://media02.hongkiat.com/change-android-boot-animation/rename.jpg

4. Next, browse to the custom boot animation that you want to switch to, copy the zip file to /system/media. Long-press, choose Permission.

5. Tick the boxes as shown in the screenshot below, and press OK. After that, rename the file to bootanimation.zip, if the zip file name is different.

Note: You have to make sure that the file name is correct (bootanimation.zip) for the system to recognize your boot animation, and boot properly.
http://media02.hongkiat.com/change-android-boot-animation/boot-animation-zip-files.jpg


6. Now you should be able to see two zip files, one, bootanimation.zip (new file) and the other is bootanimation.zip1 (original).

Note: If you ever want to switch back to your original boot animation, delete the current bootanimation.zip and rename the original file back to bootanimation.zip (from bootanimation.zip1).

7. Reboot the device and you will be able to see your new custom boot animation!

Ok!
Gravitybox option....

What about the screen scroll lag? I was on stock with pure performance & boy, no lag at all.
I tried pp on this & it booted but what a mess! Restored.
Any fix in dev options?

This issues we have on 90% 4.4. ROMs (((
I have no this only on Commotio..

You can try use brightness control from Xposed Gravity box - it helps me for some time on Validus..

I haven't been following closely with cutom rom since stable CM 10.1. What exactly is the brightness issue everyone is talking about on 4.4 ROMs and is it severe enough that it would cause problem as a daily driver?

B.F.E.
Anyway to get weather in lockscreen off metric? I tried changing in news, and weather, but had no effect on the lockscreen.

other than that, this rom is running pretty smoothly. Do have the slight graphical glitch when turning the screen on, but noticed it on other 4.4 roms as well.

    Okay, flashed today and set this up... This is so far the only AOSP rom that I have flashed that does not have the light dimming issue with the XT907. So far, this is amazing... I still have to check out all of these features.

    Very nice work!!! Thank you...
