    Been running this for the last three days, after trying out 5 or 6 different ones, this work perfectly, the 4G LTE works better than any I tried, the wifi tethering works great lol haven't found anything that hasn't worked lol......

    Battery life is the best I seen yet, cant say enough about this rom.......:)

    And for those of you wondering, this has been ported for the L900...

    Will have to give it a test over the weekend, been on Whompasaurus for months now, might be time for a change since there has been no support since June. Mine you I have had no issues with Whomp and has been running flawlessly since day one for me, but I want a change for the heck of it, LOL. ;)

    You know its my second favorite lol, I like the way it runs but couldn't get the speed out of it like I can with Hawk, I think you will like it, everything works, the install is great, it gives you the choice of 3 different kernel's at the install and a whole bunch of other opinions.............. :D

    OK, flashed Hawk today, will run it for a few days and then report back. It is lagging a little at times, but I will give it a few days first and let it settle in. I have always used the stock kernel, so maybe need to get use to it. I am also using Touhwiz for now.

    Well I would suggest looking at the apps and deleting any that you don't use, it does come with a few extras, personally I delete over half from stock or any custom rom, as I don't like things installed that I don't use, also I would check the stweaks settings and set them at boot and of course you have the option of overclocking now to...... :)

    Well there is one way, change the theme in your launcher, I use Apex which is free and has to many themes even to name, but there are themes that can change the size of the widgets. :)

    Yep, I know, the reason why I went back to TW was when I was on Whomp and using Nova, I would get locks ups, so I went back to TW and had no issues. I will try Nova again and see if it locks up again, these 3rd Party Launchers use much more resources so that it what makes it locks up, at least for me.

    Apex is a lot like Nova but uses less recourses, that's the reason I use it instead of Nova :)

    I will check it out, I use to use Apex, I will try Home also and see how that is tomorrow and see. I kinda like the Calender app that comes with TW also, so have yet to find one that compares for other launchers.

    Agreed, I really like S Planner as it syncs my work outlook calendar and both of my Google calendars all on the same one....

    I want to test it when I go North tomorrow, there areas where the 3G is pathetic, so I want to see if it is better with the Rom, going to download a HotSpot widget to see how it works, on Whomp it would stop working and I would have to reboot.

    Very cool, yep I have to say this is what I like about Hawk more than anything, the hotspot works and I got the best 3G and 4G connection with it more than any other rom I tested....
