    I don't have the Gnex anymore. Well technically I do, but the G2 is my phone now.

    Posted it for everyone else :)

    Will be flashing this this afternoon. :)
    I pretty much just use it now to stream music at work and to tinker with so can't really test out using it as a dd. Well, technically I could just pop my SIM in it, but I love my G2 too much to bother. :p

    My GNex is going to be my daily driver for a long time so let's see how this goes. I've been using the 4.3 ROM by the same guy for the past 2 months and it was pretty good. Let's see how this one pans out.

    The 11/5 update is smoother than the 11/2 update and there have been less freezes and reboots but they are still there. The black boxes are still seen inside google search and on Chrome occasionally. The little graphical glitches are still there in the 11/5 build but this appears to have improved. I think this will work as a daily driver if you are willing to put up with those issues. UI feels pretty smooth for this being such an early build. I haven't tried the other 4.4 ROMs and I think I'll stick with this one for the time being. I'm really thinking Google should have put out a build for this device just to show that lower spec'd phones can handle it...I know VZW's Gnex wouldn't have benefited from it...but it would have been nice for developers to work off of if nothing else.

    Bah, still haven't done it yet. Definitely don't need any customization so it doesn't bother me. :)

    Whelp, flashed. Looks cool. Messing around with it and like a lot of the new IU. Little lukewarm on the icon size and new Roboto font.

    Flashed mine today and I like it so far, aside from the reboots and black boxes. But I'm sure those will get fixed soon enough. Props to baldiwnguy77 for putting this out for us.

    I also don't understand why the developer says there are no bugs in the 4.4 ROM when there clearly are.

    Agreed, plenty of bugs...
    FCs, graphic glitches in switch between landscape and portrait, black boxes in chrome and now. Its not without some pretty hefty issues that impede full usability.

    Hmm, was going to upgrade to the 11/5 build but looks like I lost root. Guess it helps to read the directions. :rolleyes:

    Edit: Got root back. :)

    yes, reading ALL of the directions is very important with that ROM. Cant just assume that you know what you are doing. :)
    This is the link people should really be following if flashing for the first time:

    http://rootzwiki.com/topic/36706-ro...roid-431-jls36i-no-bugs/page-841#entry1504882 (even though it says pretty clearly in the OP link, to go to that^^ link first) :)
    The rom comes unrooted out of the gate, flashing superuser after flashing the rom is necessary for root; some users report the rom is more stable without root.

    the reason he says it is bug free is because every function of the phone works. The only real hang up is the graphical issues, which is possibly related to the random reboots and hanging.

    can anyone else not receive calls on the kit kat ROM?

    i can make calls though

    Yeah the two things I noticed with the 11/2 build was a few random reboots and graphical issues with locking/turning off the screen. Gives me a scrambled look...
    11/5 Build still does the latter. Don't use it enough to notice the reboots yet though. Did get root back easily enough.

    Same here, I have not rooted back to 4.3 yet but will soon. Can you receive calls on 4.4?

    Flashing now.....probably not my most brilliant idea to flash when I should be heading to bed.

    Went back to 4.3, used WugFresh tooklit to root again and getting this error message from SuperSU, No SU binary installed.

    I am now tasting KitKat. I miss the ability to move my clock to the center. I am not a fan of my punctuation being moved on the keyboard. I can receive calls and I'll be installing GoSMS for messaging because I don't like using hangouts for it. Other than the small gripes it seems pretty smooth.
