    1. Whenever i configure wifi proxy manually settings force close.
    2. Games like subway surfers lag. It used to run smoothly on your clue kingdom's rom.
    3. LED issues.
    4. It would be great if we can get a bit more stable camera.
    Anyways Thanks for dis wonderfull rom.

    I'm still getting this error and I'm surprised that Noone has replied to my comment yet. I've tried from my laptop and also my phone with no luck. Last try was one minute ago from my phone.

    Thanks for putting together this nice rom!

    After wiping system, data and dalvik cache I installed this rom and have the following findings for you:
    1. The home button doesn't seem to work for me.
    2. After pairing with another android phone, when I tried to send a file to this phone, I got a message to confirm the transfer but it didn't show the screen where I could actually confirm it.

    Here is a couple of things I hope you would consider incorporating in this rom:
    1. Would love to be able to use CDMA APN for making a data connection. This will help people using RUIM and also ones that have problem with MMS hopefully.

    I did some digging to get more info about it. For Froyo/GB, it seems, to use APN for CDMA mode, a couple of java scripts needed to be modified in framework.jar(it was for HTC Rhodium though). Here is the link for the changes in the code:

    Without the mod, the system uses null for apn, user and password. With the mod, the system retrieves the APN defined for the CDMA carrier and passes on that information while making a datacall. With this mod, the system will use APN info if set up or else it will continue to behave like it does now.

    I'm hoping that similar code exists for our device and would be easier for a master like you to implement this mod. The devs for the other phone also changed phone.apk to show APN options in phone.apk but we can perhaps use AnyCut and get to the APN settings by creating a shortcut to it hopefully and not needing to modify phone.apk.

    2. It would be nice if we could connect to Adhoc WiFi networks too.

    Thanks again for doing such wonderful work!!

    you need install gapps

    system/build.prop,"310120" Modify the code for your operators,
    system/etc/apn-conf.xml,Add your apn of operators,and Remove about 310120 rows

    After modification, in China use it very well

    Alot better and more stable than the other 4.2.2 rom, glad the camera works, would love if front facing cam could be fixed, also camera force closes whenever it recognizes a face, and gallery force closes when entering photo editor.. but overall awesome rom. Looking forward to KitKats release... Thanks for the much needed updates :)
