Thread starter
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.

Yes I did.
Going to try again on the next update lets just hope that won't be a long wait.

Does the camera work for devices that didn't have the camera working on CM11 and the other kitkat roms?

This rom is fully fictional even though is in Beta level, myself and other Dev's had been testing this rom n some other ones the VIPERDING hav been putting together for all of us. Reason why we hav been testing n doing it in nondisclosure, its to bring the best for all of us , n not buried the Dev's work with this n that,,, of questions, like we all hav done with Dev's like Hroark13, Angablade, GT, Playfulgod, Sammy etc,ext,etc,, please follow instruction to the T, n u would hav a great Xperience ,,, of ur daly drive,:eek::eek::eek::D:D:D:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::screwy::mad::mad::mad:

I had problems and went back to "500 to 505"...

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'll wait and see what happens....

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

Good job guys ...THANK YOU AGAIN
