    Thankfully I don't have to worry about the congestion issue. The town I live in only has 1200 people in it. No 4g but 3g is decent. I stay on home wifi 99

    Check out the KitKat link in the OP of this thread. It'll take you to his thread at XDA where you can then send him a PM.

    Edit:

    Just a heads up. You may have better luck asking him in the KitKat thread itself because I'm sure his PM inbox gets blown up.

    Probably also be difficult because he has a lot of devs of other roms and/or themes and apps that probably test for him. Good luck though. :) I'm looking forward to seeing it released although I am loving stock so far.

    Yep. I'm sure he's got a team together. Still, it doesn't hurt to ask. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. ;)

    A completely noobish question but I need to ask. Don't shoot! lol. When formatting sdcard in philz you get many format options. Which, in anyones humble opinon, is the best format to choose? I've always chosen default which is fat32.

    I think fat32 is the safest option. That's what I always use.

    Good idea. I would probably do the same. Wipe it all and do a fresh, clean flash.

    I had the same issue... it's their policy to keep noobs from over posting... its kept me from really being a contributor there as well.

    To all those that are looking for a solid rom, take it from me, I was having the same issues....... It seemed that every rom out had some sorta issue, be it data, camera, etc... Etc... Nothing seemed to fully work, and trust me when I say I tried every AOSP out there, and they all seemed to have one issue or another, so I ended up always going back to Ta roms, because they just seem to work a lot better.
    Then I found LS after a long long year to 2 hrs. Everything works for me on this rom and is pretty light weight compared to a few other roms I've tried, they just had what I can bloat (to many settings I never do use).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, keep at it, you will eventually land on a good rom like I finally did .

    So does SlimKat also include the ability to tether?

    I am giving LiquidSmooth a try, and finding it very... alien.
    Far as I can tell, there is no proper task manager so I can't see what is not responding or refusing to quit properly. Also lack of MultiWindow rather sucks since I rather enjoyed that while I still ran a TW rom and... rare as it might be, tethering is still frequent enough to be wanted with the ROM in question.

    I really want someone to tell me what's the real benefits of getting the tw 4.4 update because I barely use tw as it is I don't like it so unless I'm missing some huge problem it fixes I'll just stick with my backup of moar and update my profile and stuff every once in a while
    So can someone who's read through the update or is on it chime in what's the real benefits between this 4.4 and 4.3

    Trying Slim Kat now. At the least this one seems to sync with my google account and re-downloaded my apps from the Play Store fine.

    Again, no MultiWindow whatsoever that i can find.

    Once again, I still can't find where to tether, and once again, no Task manager whatsoever. Do these okp roms just not bother include one? I can definitely appreciate the smaller size, but it seems like they lose a lot in the process. Maybe I just got spoiled with the usability of TouchWiz, but... that's where I currently stand.

    It feels like my attempts at trying to run Linux on a desktop pc all over again. Everyone throws all these suggestions to this, that, and the other thing, but I can't find any that actually work like I need them to. I really hope that this doesn't repeat itself here... since I do need my phone on a daily basis.

    If you don't like tw then, at this point, I don't see a reason to take the plunge. I personally like tw and I need great picture quality. I take pics of my kids all the time and AOSP roms can't touch stock roms for camera quality. TW roms also process the pics faster so I get less blur in action. That's the main reason I like tw. I just debloat the hell out of it. Lol

    Glad you got it fixed. Sent you several PMs in response to the one you sent me but you didn't respond to any of them.

    Well I can tell you what you will be missing if you don't take it... you will be missing the benefit of having -one- stock rom that you can't use... Yep that's just about it as of right now.

    It's got tethering and hotspot. It's in the settings menu. As far as a task manager... Not sure what you mean. You have a recent apps menu by long pressing home, you can get to running apps through settings under apps... No dice on multi window but there may be a way around that. I'll look into it...
