    Hi Somesh. I have tried erything but cannot get around android keyboard (AOSP) has stopped error.

  2. Hitesh Madhok says:

    I installed the rom now the phone is not detecting the sim and wifi

  3. Reto says:

    The ROM seemed to work a treat to start with. However, somehow the device is not considered compatible to Google Plus, as well as a local shopping app. Any idea what could be the issue? Furthermore the SD card can be used, but how can it be used as internal storage. Do I need to encrypt the device in order to use the SD as internal storage. I am using a HTC one A9, which comes encrypted natively, hence I wonder whether this might be the reason. Thanks in advance for any hint.

        Hi Somesh, Thank for the update. Tried it. This ROM is really good. however i am facing two minor issues
        1) Music can’t detect my songs on SD Card.
        2) Sometimes even if i can see the data connection is on, i have to toggle it to make it working. i.e data connection is lot after some time and it doesn’t recover until i toggle it. It happens sporadically.
