    I also lost root post ROM flash, but flashing the super su download you linked brought back my root. Thanks for the update!

    Any way to revert back to the stock 4g icon? The new 4g icon is horrid. :eek:

    Also, is it just my phone or is the gallery app missing? Thanks.

    Gallery is missing, you can use quickpic app as a replacement. Also good work on the rom working smooth here.

    Does anyone know how to change the lock screen wallpaper to a wallpaper of pur own choosing? The only options I have are to use the stock Samsung ones or the live wallpapers neither of which I want.

    I discovered on the MG2 build that when the stock Gallery app is removed it also takes away the ability to change the lockscreen wallpaper (aside from third party options I am not specifically aware of). It might be the same issue here because I understand the stock Gallery app is removed on this rom.

    Ok, I have a update. I figured I would try Philz Touch recovery, after making a backup of this rom, I restored back to my 4.1 rom, then tried to restore my 4.3 backup and it did work. Must be something with twrp. Also, I had noted that the first time I flashed this rom that I lost root. I flashed the zip that xthedakmanx gave me (su binary) and now I have root, thanks.
    Also, does this rom have the halo program, I would like to use it if at all possible. If it is, where do I find it, I've been searching but cannot find.

    Halo came from Paranoid Andriod (someone correct me if I am wrong). It has been co-opted into a few other custom ROMs, but I don't think it has shown up in any stock ROMs.

    There is an Xposed module that will give you the next best thing (I hear it is a very close match) when used in conjunction with a specific app from the Play Store. XHaloFloatingWindow is the module and Floating Notifications is the app. Otherwise, pretty sure you will not see Halo on anything based on TouchWiz/stock.

    For some reason the upgrade to 4.3 was incompatible with my 64 gig transcend mini SD card, it would always say "card ready to be removed" even when I reinserted it, or remounted it. I had to downgrade back to Midnight rom 4.1.2.

    Any ideas on what caused the Incompatibility with my SD card?

    EDIT: Yes, had this problem and flashing Super SU fixed it but only after downloading Super SU from Play as well.

    I also request that Gallery and Samsung Keyboard be returned.

    I was coming from 4.3 MK5 Stock Deodexed Rom over on xda-developers and I too also experienced the Super user problem. I'll probably try that fix this weekend when I'm free.

    Also, if you guys wanted more notification toggles (such as the 3G toggle) for the notification just flash this.

    And for extended restart menu (Restart,Recovery,Download) flash this.

    Also dakman, I was wondering if you still had the Midnight Rom 1.12 zip file for the GS2. I gave my GS2 to my dad when I got my GS3 and needed reset the rom but I didn't have the 1.12 zip.

    Can someone post the gallery apk from the previous version of this ROM? I don't have access to a computer right now and I hate how I can't access the gallery directly from my camera. Thanks.

    I like this rom but I've noticed that when people call me and the other person picks up, that it takes 3 or 4 seconds before I hear them and they hear me. Is anyone else experiencing this? Also, how do I get the gallery back?

    I am having this same issue, with a stock rooted ROM. This has been happening to me for quite some time, even before the update to 4.3. I was beginning to wonder if it was actually MY phone.

    That is actually why I was looking around at ROMS, to see if it would make any difference.

    Quickpic works great. I've been using it for over five years.

    When you said not to flash third party kernels, did you mean just with this rom? I've flashed several from xda and my phone is fine.

    Pretty sure the ROM developer accidentally flashed a Verizon kernel prior to giving that warning and then realized his issue later. It is in one of his replies in this thread if I recall correctly.

    Hello! I really want to set the lockscreen wallpaper to a custom picture but the gallery is removed and doesn't give me the option to do it elsewhere. Hope you can help. Thanks!

    It's a modded stock ROM so it probably won't be updated until the stock ROM is.

    Thanks to everyone along the way for their input. Everything went well.
    I also lost root, but used the link, flashed and bam!!
    Several have mentioned stock gallery, Samsung keyboard etc.
    I've had Titanium backup for years. For the most part I love it.
    Thinking out loud here, is there a way for me to "restore missing apps"? Where did my backups go? Could the handful of apps I want be saved somehow, then reinstalled.
    I'm thinking of reverting to my Nandroid backup and trying something along these lines.
