OK. Up and running after DjeMBeY's advice on a system wipe as well.

New apps...

Current = News. Telegraph, Independent, Guardian, etc:

Keep = Note taking app

People = Contacts. Now in white background with contact photos on right

Wi-Fi Advanced = Wi-Fi optimisation (minimise battery usage when Wi-Fi is on)

Chrome = default browser

General observations: Status bar is Android blue. Cannot seem to take screen shots. Drag down Notification menu is spartan... Brightness, Settings, Wi-Fi, carrier signal, battery%, Aeroplane mode and bluetooth are on a separate toogle page. Camera is very basic with minimum settings in a half moon setup.

I know that some of us complain about the Samsung bloatware but there are certain features and UI that I am missing from Android 4.2.2, MF8. The drop down notification panel with everything on one page. The settings menu layout. S-Planner. Multi coloured icons.

This ROM is very fast and responsive and working perfectly now.

However, for the time being, I am reverting back to Android 4.2.2.
Did you know that hitting the Thanks button is quicker than typing it and the Search button is your friend.
