  2.  I don't think they would do so... Since the developers only develop roms for Galaxy Ace at the moment. But wait who knows, they might change their mind in future.

  7. That's a bug... Wait for it to be released. Infact the team took the release back for few reasons and I am not sure if they will provide a more stable build or not. In the meantime use another contact app from market & if it also doesn't work try another rom.

  8. Just for my curiosity, the rom still has the contacts bug?

  10. I just flashed this rom, where the hell is the android market/google play? I cant find it anywhere, so where is it?

  11. Don't panic. If there's no any Google Apps then, flash gapps for GB in recovery. Search here for Google Apps for Custom roms and you should be able to get detailed instructions.

  14. Well, those are bugs in the rom alright... I've got no solution. I think there's probably an update to Omega Series and if I get some time to analyze it, I post about it very soon. For now switch back to other roms.
