    Here is a look at my Daily Driver its all there.
    It's a link to a folder of my Screenshots.

    Helpful Hints:

    Using a PC makes it easier to Down Load , If you use your Phone, change you settings
    to web or browser view in the browsers settings. This makes it easier to complete the
    Captia Security Check. Reading all posts in a thread is always suggested .
    I always Factory reset any ROMS I install first thing.
    I always Format my System Partition between ROM installs.
    Let it settle out a little when you first load them.
    Always make a Backup and save it off the phone

    To Enter into Recovery Hold " Home" key when starting up Phone.

    It is Beta ware ! Use it or Loose it.
    Betaware is a program or application that is still in the development and testing phase of software development, one of the stages that occurs before final release.
    Betaware is a pre-release software or application given to a selected group of users so that they can try it under real conditions before the formal release to the public.
    These beta versions have undergone alpha testing and almost look like the final product, yet as the testing
    progresses and bugs are found, changes are made.
    This helps to make the final release version bug-free.


    It does look stock and is suttle, and does grow on you.
    Check out the Home themes.

    N/W Cameras,
    The Boss " Horark13 " Which Brought F6 kk to the U.S. Has done a Good Thing Again.


    Be Sure to thank Hroark13 for ALL his Help!
    Thank you ALL for Trying this ROM.
    Be Nice To Your Devs and each other.

    For me contact's did not work forced closed even the dialer would not place call. Tethering would not work. Besides that rom was smooth. Its a shame it didn't work for me I did like the rom looking forward to tryin it out gain on your next update.
  11. This ROM is awesome !! The only thing that I noticed but isnt a problem to me is that there's two different settings apps the one in the app drawer and the one in the notification bar :)

    I had the phone all set with all my favorite apps......

    And didn't realize till I was in the other side of town after midnight getting a burrito...

    That I had exactly the same issues as "papadog" .....

    No phone ,no contacts, no service,and crashing errors when I tried to get them working...

    Ran sweet tho....lol...I'll wait and see what happens....

    Besides excitement...I thought people that were in line to Dev for the F6...got in line for new phones...

    Good job guys ...THANK YOU AGAIN
  20. Oh noticed contacts dosnt let me call and the phone app dosnt let me call either ): can call people through messaging app tho

    This is a known issue that can be partially fixed by flashing a special kernel. Your f6 is one of the ones that has the ov5693 camera which doesn't play well with any of the kitkat ROMs. If you flash the special kernel that Hroark13 made you can use the back camera but you still won't have led flash and pictures taken with the front camera will have a blue tint and will be stretched making your face look tall and skinny so its a trade off.
    If you want to use this kernel you can get it from here
    There is one for kitkat 4.4.2(the one you need) and one for cm11 so make sure you get the right one.
