    Hey max can you use the gapps from the link above with another rom like liquidsmooth?

    • darrell says:

      yes it does work with liquid smooth although before you take a pic you have to make sure its focused otherwise it will crash every time

  29. Yardley R says:

    any other fix for the camera issue other than just focusing before taking the pics?

    Also, after rebooting 2 nd time, phone will not connect to network – any idea why?

    Thanks, in advance!

    • darrell says:

      thats the only one i can think of if you dont focus the cam it will crash every time i flashed mine with the liquid smooth rom though

      • Howard says:

        I had same thing after one or two after rebooting no network connection. I reinstalled three this rom three times, no lucky 🙁

        • Edgar says:

          Try this, system settings/more… /Mobil Networks uncheck data enable and make sure that network mode is set on LTE/GSM/WCDMA, reboot phone, once rebooted check data enable back again. This method has been working on my phone for a little while but I did had to re-install the rom at one point when this wasn’t working.

  36. Howard says:

    Mostly cust roms are bugs. I updated at&t OTA to 4.1.1 from stock at&t 4.0.4 with rooted now OTA didn’t overwrite the supersu I’m glad I didn’t use re-rooted for 4.1.1 I was testing everything all are perfect and quadrant test is 5985. :))

  37. Asterios says:

    Hey Max, I’m guessing there’s no BT fix at the moment right? I love this ROM for everything except that I can’t listen to music in my car or my BT headdset at work. What exactly is the issue? Is it GAPPS? If so, can I use an older GAPPS with this ROM?

  38. lee says:

  40. brian says:

    Just flashed AOKP and its works so much better than PA 2.55 (WHY NO PA 2.99 for d2att?!?!!) Calendar synced on the first try! Camera works! so nice to have a phone again after dropping MIUI

  41. Carlos says:

    Whenever I open a game with this rom, the screen goes black.

    The only way to open the game from there is to lock the phone, and then select the game from the ‘current programs’ and list.

    Anyone having this problem too?


  42. Erick says:

    camera forecloses all the time. Sometimes you have to reboot device to get it to work. but for the most part it never works.

  43. John says:

    Hey man, I think there’s something wrong with this rom. Its seems as if whenever I load this rom something happens with my recovery settings. All my files and zips move to a different directory ( -o/ ) I don’t have my stock backup file. I try to restore but there’s no restore file. And I know I did a back up. I try to load another rom but this is the only rom that loads.
    I did a complete wipe like the video says: wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache and dalvik wipe and then flash a rom. I have to unroot and reroot again. this is a pain. It seems as if it happens to this rom only.

  44. windy says:

    download astro file manager youll find it in file 1
    Then long press the file select move and paste it on file 3 the way I do it is after selecting move go back to file 3 openit click clockwork recovery click download and then move here. Just follow the inst. Cause im telling you by heart good luck

  45. Cody says:
