 * directions. YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and  
 * if you point your finger at me for messing up your device, We will  
 * laugh at you.  Loud and hard.
 *

 * I do not intend pre-rooting unless it becomes part of OmniROM.

FAQs:
1) Where is the app switcher gone?
A: Double tap the home button for recent apps.

2) Why doesn't long pressing the home button show recent apps?
A: Answer given in (1).

3) Where is multiwindow?
A: Still undergoing development at omni. May be added in Alpha 1, if stable.
Update: Yep, made its way into Alpha1 alright!

4) How do I use multiwindow/split view?
A: Open two apps (pretty obvious), Double tap home button. Long press the app that isn't currently in foreground, Click 'Add to split view' .
Note: Don't bother to do any typing in the second window, your keyboard will overlap the window.
Solution: Use Minuum Keyboard , as it's pretty darn small.

5) When is a kitkat build coming?
A: When it's stable enough to boot on nozomi.
I uploaded the kitkat pre-alpha instead of jellybean alpha 0. It'll have its own thread when ready.

6) When is release n?
A: Read the xda rules, then decide whether you want to ask this out loud or not..

Screenshots are posted through DevDB.
Click 'Screenshots' on that black bar just above the OP..

You added screenshots to one of your posts so it's kind of a moot point now, but I just wanted to point out that the DevDB options aren't supported by Tapatalk. Lots of people use that to quickly check XDA, so it's understandable if they can't find screenshots or a download link (but as I said, the way you implemented it now with the spoiler button is perfect).

Anyway I'm really curious about Omni, I'll probably use this instead of CM. Some of the Omni devs used to dev for my previous device (ZTE Skate, tilal6991 used to develop for that, and Konstat did the Blade) and it's nice to be able to use some of their work again :).

    Last time I talked to him on this topic, he said that it is coming soon enough. I can't guarantee though.

    A lot has changed since then...

    @Great_Geek (got your name right this time :p)
    Any word on the progress for omni4.4? I know i can read the github for this but github is a bit too confusing to me to read.

    My laptop crashed HARD. BIOS is messed up beyond repair.
    Haven't really done any coding since I released this here..
    I guess I'm just stuck until lenovo decides to send a BIOS firmware image my way.
    RaymanFX is doing some awesome work with cm11, you guys should probably give that a shot.
