- Video Lag --> Fix in OTA


For the framework:
  • If you want, you can download Xposed framework here and install him from the recovery

For any modifications/modules that you want to install:
  • Download and install the module
  • Launch Xposed Installer, go to the "Modules" tab (you will also get there if you click on the notification warning you that the module is not enabled yet)
  • Enable the module by checking the checkbox
  • Reboot

What exactly are -
Enabled many other hidden features
Can you list them?

And does this ROM have this beautiful and useful clipboard which I saw on other LL TW S4 ROM? I am talking about the one which pops up when you paste something, and it includes clipboard history and contains even pictures I have previously copied. Would be great to have it again.

Wifi with NK2 Modem and Stock kernel

I am running "TW Lollipop 5.0.1 Rom" with "v2-TW-ll-Edition-ausdim kernel" on my m919 device (tmobile phone). My Bootloader & Modem is NK2 (the newest for m919). Wifi is ok and I didnt get any RR but a very bad battery life...
Would I use wifi with the Stock kernel in this Rom (with my NK2 Modem)? Can I flash ausdim kernel here if I find any wifi problem. Thanks.

Same problems like other roms :( Wifi not turning on, and Google Play stopping. Had a complete super wipeout and cleared cache. Nothing works.

Try to use a different Kernel...
Ausdim V2 and AEL it comes with wifi fix..
if it does the same, makes me think a bootloader or modem issue.
Try updating google play services?

How about youtube videos? Lagging?

this probably the reason why Samsung unable to release official I9505 Lollipop because of this bugs for snapdragon.. and they pulled out Germany DBT firmware for this type of bugs...
