Thanks for your reply.

I don't need phone functions (i don't have sim in it), i just want the stablest and fastest rom for use it mainly as audio player and for some littles google search, and others littles apps like caculate, etc. (it is used by my 6-7 years old childrens).

I don't care of android version and i will install my own apps like nova launcher and xposed. If you have some recommandations.

You have found right ROM! KitKat/4.4.4 is the fastest, according to my experience from 4.1.2 to 6.0.1. So flash the latest SlimKat 9.0 legacy rom from 29.12.2014. and enjoy.

Not "[ROM][4.4.4][ALL] SlimKat 9.1 UNOFFICIAL [29/12/2015]" ?

I'm actually on AOSP MOD with Android 4.1.1 and i've been surpised to not be able to install some apps. Maybe a more recent android version (than 4.1.1) is important...

Yapp! 9.0 Legacy is excellent, 9.1 CAF are slowed down and have problems with camera. Well, 4.1.1 is API level 16, 4.3.x is API 18, most of apps for Jelly Bean (16-18) will work on Kitkat/4.4.x (API 19) which is almost 3 years old. Or find older version on App Mirror site, where every app got minimal and target android version requirements.

So would you please @adeii link us the best Slimkat version and post the tweaks/settings to use it with the same stability and bug freedom of CM10.1 by fonz93 ? I would like to use it on my y300 as daily use ROM.

Hey everyone, my first post so please forgive any stupidness on my part :)

I downloaded legacy slimkat for my Ascend Y300 then wiped everything from my phone and cleared all caches (including davlik), I even formatted my micro SD card to ensure absolutely everything is clean. I then installed legacy slimkat build.9.0.20141229 without any google crapps or any other addons, however on rebooting the Android setup screen displays a error saying the android keyboard has stopped working. Is there a fix I'm missing for this?

My Y300 is also using CWM 6.0.4.5 if that makes a difference.

I've flashed Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.9.0.20141229-CHIL360.zip but it looks like there is no app to manage superuser permissions. Is it normal?

A update for anyone curious, I have cleared all caches including dalvlik for each of the following slim versions when flashing them and the android keyboard is fine on the following versions;

Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.8.20.20141209-CHIL360

Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.8.4.20141008-CHIL360

Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.8.6.20141014-CHIL360

Slim-u8833-4.4.4.build.8.8.20141021-CHIL360

Its just 8.9 and 9.0 the android keyboard is screwed.

Thanks for these explanations. I will continue for some time with AOSP Mod (i only have two not important apps which ca't be installed) but if i want o flash again, i will take a look at Slimkat 9 :)

What's the performance difference between The latest legacy version and CAF? I've been doing some light gaming lately and I've noticed that games are a bit slow, and sometimes crash. Would it be worth it flashing the Legacy version instead?

Well, i have not remember that. But everything was laggy and most of camera apps are not working (camera can not be open).

SU is integrated in Settings, at the bottom, not as separated app.

So you guarantee me following this steps I will have:

1-Full Hardware Acceleration

2-No random reboots ,especially when sending files and when connecting the phone as mass storage via usb

3-More free RAM and battery life than in CM10.1 by fonz93

Moreover: do you use a different kernel than the original one in the Slimkat build you suggest in this post?

Do you use a particular I/O scheduler and/or CPU governor?

Does ART work? If yes,does it affect the performance and stability of the phone?

I'm using that version, I'm not experiencing random reboots, HW Acceleration works (at least in MX Player, keep in mind that it also depends on the video being played) and I have more ram compared to AOSP MOD rom (I haven't tested CM10.1 by fonz93).

1-i think so, 2-no reboots even when sending from phone to pc or uploading, 3-more RAM yes, battery life lightly better.

4-original chil360 kernel,

5-I prefer "hyper" governor (from 245mhz to 1ghz) and "bfq" or "zen" scheduler (sd read cache 2048 bytes), OutOfMem (light-32mb, no fsync), trim all partition on boot, 128MB swap on /cache partition.

6-IMHO ART are not fully supported on KitKat, so sometimes is unstable and don't need to use it, stay at dalvik.

But even newest Nova Launcher (may 2016) should work on JellyBean (API16). Something else is problem, maybe Force hardware rendering for 2D (see it in Settings>Developer mode)

thank you I have activated this function, and still the same problem . 
The solution I found is to install the google keyboard with the apk after, and desactivate AOSP keyboard. 

And, I reboot daily. You confirm me with you everything is stable ? what are 
your settings ?

Well, mine Y300 is stable, no need to reboot it... but I use SmartLauncher and ThumbKeyboard. SlimLauncher and AOSP keyboard are uninstalled :) Maybe you are lack of memory in /system or /data ?
