    i then also cherrypick a few things, not sure if these are still needed but it didnt hurt anything :p, after running envsetup run this command to easily cherry pick em. please note this

    if you want multiwindow you need this commit https://gerrit.omnirom.org/#/c/1510/

    when i get some time ill setup omni.dependencies properly so room service will take care of it all, but its a first step :p

    Shabby, should the instructions also include "flash SuperSU?" I didn't think it was included with this rom. My apologies if it is mentioned and I missed it.

    unfortunately the aosp messenger has been deemed dead and hangouts is its replacement. 4.4 and on will have that as the one included in most roms.
