My first thought on reading post #1 of the xda thread...

Long-Press Home Button does not open Multi-Tasking
So... that should be... "All is not quite Working yet !!"

Seems to be some confusion as to whether this is an official CM 11 ROM release even.

I would recommend anyone thinking of this to read ALL the posts first.

for a port its running surprisingly well.

Camera isnt working atm, no big deal as it will be fixed in the next build which is due in a couple of hours.

Ive switched from dalvik runtime to Art runtime and things just got a whole lot smoother

The chronic kernel this rom ships with is very smooth, ive switched to ondemand and noop as i usually do so ill see how that pans out, wifi is extremely strong with this kernel aswell

I just noticed this rom does not change your baseband

Day one review

Very very smooth and responsive rom, battery life is on a par with echoerom with ausdim kernel.

Im not overwhelmed by the quality of the camera but i have downloaded uCam and now have HDR working, not as good as the sammy camera but 100% better than CM stock.

DSP manager is a great alternative to vipermod, and its working great with google music

All apps work using the dalvik runtime, i was getting FC all over the place on ART runtime but there is now a hybrid gapps package being built, i just cannot live without whatsapp hence the fact i now run dalvik.

lastly (for today) Team Black out causes soft brick, maybe because of the Art runtime, im not sure, but ive had a pig of a day at work and im going for a beer.

will report more tomorrow

Sounds like the beer is well deserved :-)

Think I'll just download when I get in tonight from work, and do a backup and flash ;-) any special instructions for flashing?

And I don't mean wearing a long jacket ;-)

Well I went ahead and flashed it last night

So far it seems OK, it doesn't seem to be recognising my SD card and I've not tested it to the limit by any means, but it's decently fluid/slick just I find these days cyanogenmod alone isn't customisable enough. I want to be able to swipe down with one finger and have my toggles cone down also to be able to change those toggles!

Think I'm going to stick to stock until a few more releases and aokp/pa
