    Hi Is it possible to set up “double tap wakeup”, in this ROM. Very impressive ROM. “Double tap” is the only feature I miss. Please advise.

      Hi does this mean you have updated the ROM with the “double tap” feature. If yes, I want to download and install the ROM. Cheers

    Hi. I am the true author of the ROM, not Seyit.

    I can’t get this ROM to work – after setting up the wifi, it gets stuck on ‘checking for updates’ which I can’t skip. Also the gapps linked above is no good as it’s not 64 bit.
