    That looks interesting actually...

    I'm running PA on 4.3. Started out pretty rough, but it's smoothed out. They say there's quite a bit under the hood that conflicts...

    I think I'll give Purity a Miss, PIE doesn't appear to work on 4.3 and that's kinda essential to my setup.

    How stable is PA? I've only had a brief read, but it looks as though it's ok now?

    Everything is pretty much working now. But I'm getting random 20 sec screen freezes :mad: No one else seems to be complaining, so maybe it's a bad app or something... Still trying to figure it out.

    I'm running Cataclysm and it's been great with the Faux kernel.

    I saw some more people with random screen freezes on the PA ROM. PA says it's an issue with the JSS15J 4.3 itself, so all JSS15J based ROM's will have it. They think they may have it fixed in new update though...

    Do you absolutely need the updated radio/bootloader for PA?

    I'm guessing no? It doesn't seem to be essential for any other 4.3 releases.

    I flashed PA 4.94 and .95 and didn't update the radio or bootloader, i came to PA from stock 4.3 with the .33 hybrid radio

    This!!!!

    I've been running Cataclysm with the stock kernel and man I gotta say I'm really impressed!!!

    A long time Cyanogenmod user here and this ROM is amazing!

    I was on 10.1.2 stable for a while then I'm like f@ck it. I can't wait any longer lol. Flashed back to stock, installed OTA and played with that for a few days. Then had to have features back.

    So I poked around XDA for what seemed an eternity and found Cataclysm to be the most stable. All the JSS roms are buggy as hell.

    I'm someone that has to have everything work flawlessly(an occasional random reboot aside)

    Cataclysm is basically stock with some CM cherry picks but mainly his own mix of features I'm not accustomed to on Cyanogenmod. I'd love to share screenshots but I can never get em to work on here.

    The crazy thing is is dude built this ROM blind!!LOL He owns a Gnex :)

    Anyway I highly recommend it as a daily driver. Literally no bugs, it's super fast with amazing battery life(close to 6 hours SOT!) on the STOCK kernel.

    Here's a link to the rom thread. Sorry in advance if I'm not allowed to post links.

    Play Music is jumpy with volumes. The volume can be fine, then the next song will start and it will be way too loud.

    Only had it on since this morning, but that's the only issue so far.

    Battery life on PA is terrible. :(

    I was losing about 3% overnight on the 4.2.2 ROM I was on. Last night, my battery went from 100% to 83% in 6 hours of doing nothing.

    Need to do a little more messing about, see if there's anything I can do to improve things.

    CM dropped the first official 10.2 nightly yesterday. It's been running great for me so far.

    What's it based off? The JSS or JWR builds?

    Been running PA for a few days with minimal issues, flashed the new radio and that sorted the battery drain issues.

    I haven't encountered any, but that's not to say they don't exist. So far I haven't had any random crashes or reboots, etc.. Seeing as how this is a Nexus device stability isn't much of an issue as all the code is open source. I imagine CM 10.2 on non Nexus devices is extremely buggy at this point.

    Has anyone wise had problems with CM 10.2 nightlies? It was the first 4.3 rom I tried and I seriously just went back to 4.2.2. It was really buggy for me for some reason.

    Not tried the CM nightlies, but at this early stage of development, nightlies are always going to be pretty buggy.

    What sort of issues were you having?
