I tried this rom for a couple of weeks. It's nice but i had issue with gps (i had to reboot everytime i needed to use it because there was no signal), with calls (the signal wasn't too good), with WhatsApp's videocalls and Volte didn't work. Maybe it depends of my phone, i don't know, anyway I switched to Korea's rom and everything works fine now.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Some personal thoughts:
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- feel free to send me some coffee (which btw, runs out pretty quick), via paypal, if you want to support my work;
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

Installation steps

  • Make sure your phone is charged to at least 70%.
  • Download the ROM, and transfer to your phone / external SD card if you have encryption active
  • Make sure OEM Unlock is on in developer settings
  • Boot the phone into TWRP
  • Do a FULL wipe: Dalvik Cache, Cache, Data, System
    - If you come from stock rom, probably encryption is active, you need to format data partition in twrp-wipe menu
  • Flash rom and boot (first boot can take 15-20 min)
  • uncheck diagnostic data in setting wizard
