    AOSPA. Let see what others have to say. Sound like a lighter ROM. Good for Testing Dual Boot? Who knows.

  • Diego says:

    I like this ROM, but I can’t use it because in my phone give me a serious issues, in fact I can’t receive calls, but I receive the sms call. Another problem is notification that I don’t see on status bar like reminder or the button on the top-right to access quickly to settings, WiFi, etc on status bar that doesn’t function.

    I flash cm11 for now πŸ™‚

  • Diogo says:

    Mobile network signal drops inexplicably!!! Why is that!? Whith Cyanogenmod 11 latest versions and with this version! I have to turn the phone off and take the battery out then put it in and turn on to have my signal back, otherwise I’d have to wait for the phone’s will.

    Please! How can I resolve this or which is the latest version that doesn’t have this problem.

  • David S says:

    Does this rom suffer from the clock freeze issue???

  • Starkus says:

    Flicker here, and the data and clock text is removing the notifications – quick settings button from the screen.

  • ufon007 says:

    Great, everything working now, just finding way how to change to f2fs format without loosing data πŸ˜‰

    Thank you! Will let you know in case of any problems, but till now (3hrs of using.. ok…) everything seems to be all right.

  • Mounir says:
