  1. Chadman says:

    Dang. Horrible ROM for me. Reboot city. Can’t even get past the setup process w/o a reboot. Tried several install attempts, no love.

  2. Steve says:

    Works well for me. I make sure to do factory reset that formats system, cache etc in CWM. Run it twice and format cache and go to advanced to format Dalvik cache. Then install the rom, and install the P0llutions patch. Gapps is optional.

    The only thing I still can’t figure out is how to activate the GPS hardware on the i717.

    • Chadman says:

      Right on. I had better luck after I left off Gapps, but still had the screen flicker problem, even after patching. Bummer.

    • Steve says:

      ok, all works well. i have the spen & GPS apps working. Performance is good. There are lots of good options. make sure to read all the posted links for how to do things. I like it.

  3. Big Wheel says:

    Love this ROM. I only encounter 2 issues so far and been running for almost 4 days. Sometimes when I run video in Facebook, the screen starts to fuzz and the phone reboots. The other issue is that the clock does not give me any fuctions (i.e. alarm, stop clock). But I love this ROM upgrade from Beanstalk. Nice job. (I’m new to this root thing also.)

    • Big Wheel says:

      Ok, I had to remove this ROM, very buggy. However I really did enjoy the ROM. Video feeds freezes phone and causes it to reboot. No talk to text. And clock does not have any functions other that telling the time. I had to download an app for alarm. Still a nice ROM please fix bugs.

  4. Dave says:

    I got to the patch you said to install and i believe it has bricked my note….so sad because i just got this phone today

  5. Chris says:

    Hey, Max.
    I’ve been trying every way that I can think of to install that Pollutions patch with LS, and I don’t think I’m getting it right. This ROM is really nice, although it is flickering like crazy. I can’t even view anything in Chrome unless it has a white background. Looks like the colors of choice are black and white for this ROM.
    Would you be able to give me a little better idea of how to install this patch (or at least the order of which to install). The directions in the KitKat video didn’t really lay out when to install a patch.
    Thanks a ton!

  6. Carl says:

    is this safe to use on N7005?

  7. joe says:

    My radio doesn’t work now. I was using able to use previous with simple mobile and now I switched to metro. Same towers but says emergency call only… Anything I can do?

  8. jose says:

    Mine didn’t come with contacts app… is there a kitkat version so I can seemed them?

    • Rich says:

      from what i remember on my limited time on Liquid…i think it’s called PEOPLE on there or something. Has the same icon as Contacs did but just named different.

  9. asia says:

    I’ve had this since late July. It worked well at first but it won’t let me take videos, YouTube videos won’t work, they get Grey and choppy. Half the time my camera doesn’t work, and this past week its started restarting constantly after my screen turns off. Its draining my battery so fast. How do I fix this ? Can I just download another ROM or do I have to delete this first ?

  10. Richard says:

    A couple of weeks for me on my Note i717. Love the overclocking and stepping up the min processor speed. Lagginess is much better and it operates on par with my S3. Huge difference on Google Maps with satellite image loading times. Very snappy.
    Sometimes Youtube video is blocky longitudinally but a pause and start solves all problems.
    Biggest issue is I can’t find any way to direct camera storage to my SD Card.
    I needed 4.4 to run a commercial app on Android. So this solved a nice problem for me.
    Any help is welcome.
    Battery life is much better than stock.
    Thanks for posting Max!
    Are you liking the OnePlus One ROM better than this LS + Uber?
