Are these the same AMSS and DSP1 from the previous 2.4 versions? As in, do they need to be reflashed if updating from 2.4.3?

Very smooth Rom, however keyboard does not recognize more than a language. I have selected 2 input languages (Arabic & English ) but in both keyboard types English.

UPDATE: Fix this by installing gingerbread keyboard from market.

I was bummed about the Chainfire3D driver killing GPS on 2.4.3. That was thankfully fixed in 2.4.4, but somehow Dungeon Defenders became totally unplayable, with or without the driver. I'm curious what caused the sudden performance drop.

Outside of that one app, the rom's been plenty speedy though. I'll look forward to testing it further tomorrow morning.
