How to install:

  1. boot into ClockWorkMod recovery
  2. backup and restore -> backup (makes a nandroid backup of your previous ROM)
  3. mounts and storage -> format /system
  4. wipe data and factory reset
  5. install
  6. install
  7. reboot now


Q: I can’t find developer options and performance settings, why?
A: Settings -> About phone -> Click ‘Build number’ several times

Q: I don’t have reboot options in power menu, why?
A: Settings -> Developer options -> Advanced reboot

Q: When I’m connected with an USB cable to my computer, I can’t see my internal sdcard as a storage, why?
A: I’ve made an executive decision not to include a mount point for internal sdcard. This is because recent Android versions don’t allow setting emulated sdcard as secondary storage. Setting rather small emulated sdcard as a primary storage caused issues with games/apps that want to download large amounts of data to the sdcard.

Q: There’s no transparent status/navigation bar, why?
A: It has been disabled on low memory devices. You can enable it by removing/commenting/changing to false ‘ro.config.low_ram=true’ in /system/build.prop. There’s also an option that will only force high-end graphics (Setting -> Performance -> Force high-end graphics).

Q: ‘OK Google’ voice command doesn’t work, why? There’s no Google Now page on the homescreen, why?
A: These are features of proprietary Google Experience Launcher. You’ll have to find and install GE Launcher first. ‘OK Google’ voice command is also disable on low memory devices (see above).
