We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at us for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

  1. I have seen a review on APEX 2.0.0 rc2. I know you have probably been asked this question to many times, but here it goes anyway. Which ROM do you prefer APEX 2.0.0 or Liberty .08

  2. When I tried to download the version 8 of Nightlies…. it told me “error – unexpected end of stream”. What does that mean? I just installed the TBH GB

  3. Love it…version .09, but I wsh I could change the color of the wifi and cell signal bars…or can I?
