  • Alex says:

    Is this fully AOSPA? Not CM-based?

  • Ozzy says:

    • Chokurei says:

      yea,wanna know it too!
      Du u recommend this Rom?Im using CM 11 !

      Thanks for the answers..!

      • Jo says:

        I’m using it now for over a week. (Built by another developer). It’s much more stable in my eyes. Battery life is a little bit better than CM11 in the end of april, and for me about double as good as latest CM-releases. Antutu benchmarks are about the same (9500-10000) with the same apps installed.

    • Yoniverh says:

      oh lord, another one!! please shut up and try it for yourself.. :/

      • Jo says:

        What the fuck… A comment box / community is for people to SHARE their thoughts and their experience. Not to give each other shit about “do it yourself” or “google”.

        I’m quite sure people already know they have the option to try it out.

    • Yoniverh says:

      oh god. random reboots ๐Ÿ™ i think it’s some kind of samsung problem because i don’t have reboots on my nexus 5 with PA

      • after changing for a new battery this issue dissappear, I thougt it was ROM problem, but it happened on every ROM I used, even Stock, so no ROM issue, I’ll give it a try And Reply again ๐Ÿ™‚

        wait for a new feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Just as I thought it might be a battery issue, I’ve been using it all day long and no issue at all when I started using it, my battery had 28% I charged it and no problem ’till now, please check your phone because it must have something with malfunction, in my case it was baterry ๐Ÿ™‚ if you see your battery lasts a very short, then it could be your problem too

        best regards! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ozzy says:

    no you need to wipe or your device will get into a bootloop..

  • calufafalcone says:

    1) i thing thereยดs a bug with the menu and back lights some times after i read or dismiss a notification still blinking, the only way to solve this is rebooting the cell phone.
    2) also thereยดs a bug, is on the youtube app, i canยดt play any video. Just keep saying that thereยดs a problem tap to try again (trust me i try several times with a lot of videos, same result.)
