  2. when I install the rom beta 3 it takes to start and does not get more than 20 minutes

  3. Can you be more clear? Do you mean you are stick at boot loop or android logo? If so, do a data, cahce and dalvik cache in clockwork mod recovery and then reboot your device.

  4. is the camera still not working?

  5. Yes, camera is not yet working. Hopefully, it will be fixed in next release.

    1. thanks for the reply. how about 3rd party camera apps?

    2. by the way if i install this with my phone, can i use their galaxyics app to update the to their next release?

  6. Installed this on my ace. so far, everything is running fine except for the following:
    1. Camera (I've been warned, i know)
    2. Wifi/USB tethering (it kept saying: turning on Wi-fi)
    3. Webpage rendering (used stock browser and dolphin)
    4. some animation lagging issues
