3.XLound and ClearPhase settings aren't working in sound settings.
A.Dont worry it is because of the Acid audio engine.

A.Select "CortexA9/15 with NEON" when asked for the Driver and reboot.

A.Select "Alphabetical" order, the launcher will FC. Now again select "Own Order" and everything will be fine.

7."XYZ" App FCs when I try to increase the volume.
A.Its a known bug and it will happen only once after a reboot.


Known Bugs :

I hope all bugs have been fixed....

I would suggest you using Phantom kernel by @Pwng3 since it is based on the latest sources to get optimum results....

You dont have to, its ok if you have installed CWM....

Can you be more specific about your bootloop issue.
