ROM is working flawlessly, there are couple of chinese apps that u can remove.

Guys please do not install GAPPS just after flashing the Rom.After Flashing rom reboot the system and configure it,then go to recovery and then flash the GAPPS.
If u flash GAPPS just after flashing rom, then after reboot the rom will not move past to the welcome screen and says “WLAN stpped working”.

“Do not update this rom as u will loose root privilege, Recovery and google services”

    Install without problem. Working very smoothly I am coming back from Limonchello to Vibe UI and Vibe does feel a lot more fluid.

    My only problem is with facebook which crashes when I try to access my messages, same with messenger which quits as soon as I try to access a message with popup : “Unfortunately, Messenger has stopped”. I wiped both apps caches, partition cache, reinstalled… no way to get rid of the problem. Any Ideas how to solve ?
