    Right on.. one thing I did notice. When setting my alarm. The time that the alarm is set to is in black making it unreadable unless long pressing the alarm time. Other than that works wonderful.. thank you so much!!

    Edit: when trying to add account in email (my Comcast account) everything is in black making what I wrote unreadable and certain options unreadable.

    Edit 2: when in lock screen settings and selecting wallpaper the options that come up are barely unreadable. Light gray on White.

    I hope you don't get annoyed with me bro. :D
    Just thought I'd point these out.

    I love it. No issues so far at all. Have tried everything except Bluetooth. Amazing job. Runs smoother than expected, quadrant score was higher than last ROM, and still higher than GS3

    No problem... Feedback is important. ;)

    Those pesky LG apps don't like the AOSP black... I'll decompile them and see if I could adjust their colors. If not, I'll find suitable replacements for them.

    Thanks bro... Much appreciated. :D

    Take back previous statement, everything works including Bluetooth and due to build:prop tweaks GIFs load and playback normally. This important because of theChive!

    Everything works perfect ! I love this ROM . The only bug is that when the plug your charger box pops up its hard to read it and when it gets to 2% the battery blinks white. But other than those small things everything is perfecto!

    Thanks a ton bro... That really means a lot since LDrifta is the man and who's work I really admire.
    Haha! You actually influenced my decision on this. I originally was going with green like the S3, but I remember you saying something about (I think) being green & red color blind. So those 2 colors were off the table.

    Your fault. lol :p ;) :laugh: :rofl:
