    Doing a backup and flashing now! thanks a ton for this, been waiting on some custom rom support for months! I <3 you!

    I'm willing to test any updates if needed in the future. I'll be upgrading to a Note Edge soon and won't really be worrying about bricking if you wanna do something risky!

    I finally broke down and installed slimlite last night while waiting for this one. Now I get to do it all again :)

    I'm also downloading and backing up now. Looking forward to getting this on my phone.

    I had slimlite installed. I used Titanium Backup to save app/appdata and some other system settings "Text log, Call history, bluetooth/Wifi saved" Made the transition to this one quick and painless.

    I installed the overclocked kernel after getting everything up and running. My only complaint has nothing to do with the rom, the GPS has always been bad and picking up location, doubt you could do anything about that eh?

    Runs smoothly...but I'm not getting the CRT animation, plus I had to manually install Xposed and Gravity Box. Otherwise, very nice!

    Let the screen shut off on it's own and you'll see the CRT. Xposed always needs to be enabled by the user, it's always been that way.

    This is the 2nd time I installed the rom. The first time, Xposed and Gravity box were already in the apps and the CRT was working, but I tried to do a restore from a backup I had. I received an error and it wouldn't restore my data. So... I reinstalled the Xperion rom, but the CRT was gone.

    If you want the CRT back install xposed framework and search for screenoffanimation

    Let me be clear for anyone that does not understand. Xposed and GravityBox are included in the rom. You have to open Xposed and enable it along with GravityBox.

    If you don't have Xposed or GravityBox then that's because you did a factory reset after installing the rom rather than before. Just follow the install instructions and you'll be fine.

    I removed CRT from the feature list so I don't here any complaining about it. I've added it to every rom I've ever made and never had a problem till now.

    When you pull down the notifications where there used to be the clear all button is now a settings button. Is there a clear all feature?

    Look at the middle screenshot in the first post. The clear button is next to the date. It's the 3 stacked stripes like the ones found in AOSP. ;)

    Ok. Thanks. Not familiar with aosp based roms.

    This is amazing! Great work GameTheory, but the three stacked stripes for the clear all button are not there and google play music and other apps keep force closing

    The stacked clear stripes will only appear if you have notifications to clear.

    As for apps crashing there's no reason for that. Download and reinstall the rom again.

    There were notifications to clear, but the button didn't come. I guess I might have to reinstall it then :(

    ROM Updated

    I adjusted the notification clear button for those that couldn't see it. Just reinstall the rom following the same install instructions.

    If you don't wish to reinstall the rom for the clear button fix then just flash THIS patch, no need to wipe anything for this patch.

    As a reminder, I will maintain a dated change log in post #2

  21. AquaVolt

    Yes! the patch works great, I got the clear all button back. And for the force close problem its an easy fix: just uninstall and reinstall from the play store :)

    The media scanner that runs at boot is taking a crazy amount of time. I'm checking my SD card, and I'll post back. Outstanding work, GT!

    Really? Cause for me its like super short and fast. Try the Freedom Overclock Kernel that might make it faster.

    amazing! I have waited for a custom rom too long. but your download link is very slow. can you pls upload the rom to google?
  25. brotherswing

    brotherswing Android Expert

    Well, after a thorough investigation of the SD card, I've determined it was the guilty party. I've got it cleaned up, and everything is running quite snappy now.

    You, good sir, have created the go-to rom for the P659.
