    uma rom, rapida em relacao a kitkat original, mas com muito menos "lixo", e mais simples, apesar do visula ser antiquado, basta instalar uma nova launcher e ja esta xD

      nao percebi a pergunta amigo, mas eu instalei o kitkat so com o spflashtools o original, depois instalei por cima do kitkat esta versao, so assim épossivel ter a funcionar, pois este ficheiro em cima étipo uma actualizacao, nao érom de raiz.

    Thanks for the effort. I´m definitly one "Spartan":) .

    On antutu benchmark the diference performance was 25000 to almost 27000.

    by the way, is it DEODEXed?

    yes it is deodexed, I left it the way it was in kingkat!

    But as often the case priv-apps are still odexed, and because launcher3 is a priv-app i chose to odex it as well.

    Nice didnt even Benchmark :D glad you like it! And thanks for the good feedback.


    PS: found small bug and added it to description :-)

    Its cool, but i cant select ART runtime, after i select art and reboot, it is still using dalvik runtime

    I am so sorry, i just realized that xposed and art just cant go together, xposed was the problem why art cant be selected. Rom is great.

    no problem, thanks! I just finished this rom yesterday but as far as I can say battery life improved? But should further test to be sure ;-)

    also you can use gravity box to set your minimal brightness to 1 and manual set your brightness to a low level. This greatly improved my battery life!

    I think it's a good rom, very fast, but you could have left the exposed framework and the gravitybox …and maybe add the New launcher …
    is my opinion …
    I hope more improvements this rom ….
    good job …
