Well, dont get me wrong, but this is personal thing, and anyone who want to use it can install it on his own

I dont like nova for example :D

I agree, I wouldn't mind if ROM will be served with Lineage/CM Trebuched Launcher only, but having Nova inside convinced me to give it another try for at least few days (I was using Nova for few weeks long time ago, but since then I've been changing launchers, going from few different ones and ending on CM Launcher, but now CM Launcher is growing too much and has too many ADs).

But nice job on comparing 4.2.2 and 6.0.1, 

Thanks, I'll try to write something more about it after few days of testing. I was delaying move out from 4.2.2 as I worried about stability, battery, performance & camera, but looks like there was nothing to be afraid of - it's very good ROM.

Big thanks to Jpower73, [email protected] & others for their work on this ROM!

From the other side - it looks like this ROM has all the features that I needed from Gravitybox (I have removed it while trying to fix bootloop and so far I don't miss it for now).

During few days of use all I can say is that this ROM is great, but it has one quite annoying bug, as settings menu allows to enable network transmission on both SIM cards (even at the same time), but when network data transmission gets enabled on 2nd SIM (which is set for calls & SMS) then none of both SIM cards can access network data - need to restart the phone, then enable airplane mode for a moment to disconnect from cellular network, disable it and then enable network data transmission only on 1st SIM card to get network data transmission to work again.

It's a big issue as even incoming MMS on 2nd SIM can try to enable data transmission for MMS download (it fails to download it anyway, but also breaks network data transmission on 1st SIM card).

I've tried to analyze the issue in logcat, but I haven't found anything specific to this issue, besides problems with DNS resolution & IP connectivity timeouts of running apps.

Do other LP/MM ROMs have similar issues?

 

Btw. besides that issue, I'm going to keep this ROM as:

- it's fast,

- doesn't drain battery,

- all tested apps work fine (including root & Xposed-based),

- camera is good enough also (after some fine tuning of Snap Camera),

- cellular network range seems to get improved a bit compared to stock 4.2.2 (but I'm not 100% sure about that as I haven't visited all the places where I had weak signal before, yet),

- GPS catches fix & holds it much better than on 4.2.2 (even in bad weather conditions and inside of buildings - it helps to locate with wifi & cellular networks, too), acurracy of location coordinates is not always the best, but imo, it's ok),

- no problems with WIFI (besides that sometimes it doesn't autoconnect to known networks - need to choose it and I saw workaround for it, but it's not a problem for me at all)

- cellular network data transmission works stable, too (if it's not hit by bug above)

- WIFI tethering works

- not sure about BT yet - it got broken for me on previous ROM and now I see improvement as after enabled it's seen by other phones, but couldn't pair with Lenovo A850+ (with stock Android 4.2.2 based also MT6592), but I might have lost BT MAC address NVRAM configuration on previous ROM (at least it's shown as "unknown" in settings) - need to do more testing

- memory management seems to be better than on 4.2.2, even without any task killers

- I only miss the option to move apps to sdcard - it's Android 6.0 feature drop on all MM ROMs - there are two options: 1) external sdcard can be formated & encrypted as internal memory (but probably can get problems with recovery then due to encryption) and 2) use external sdcard for media & documents only (XinternalSD app helps with permissions, and allows storage of some apps data on external sdcard, but not everything)

 

Btw. on this ROM phone (Coolpad F1 8297W) is visible as Micromax A311, even in Google Play & in apps.

Few more bugs in this ROM:

- phone unlocking sometimes gets hick-ups after few hours of use - it's irritating especially when someone calls me (I hear the ring but display is disabled for few up to 10 seconds before I'm able to answer), but after unlocking performance is smooth (it's not any of my apps issue - I use much less apps here than on 4.2.2 and nothing new) - maybe it can be better with other Launcher / Locker or set higher priority to locker,

- accelerated video playback of 1080p videos (even recorded from camera) locks up after 1-2 seconds - apps are still responsive, showing progress and audio is played, but video is stalled, but 720p videos work fine and software video playback of 1080p works fine, too (this is the same for all video apps)

- Cisco AnyConnect/OpenConnect VPN connections are getting established without an issue, IP address is set, ping to gateway works, VPN connection apps can see the routes lists, DNS'es, etc. gathered from VPN gateway, but none of the additional routes is set in kernel routing table, making not possible to connect to anything in remote networks besides gateway - it seems it's just something minor and maybe I'll find workaround for that if there's not any yet (btw. 4.2.2 used toolbox for route applet, 6.0.1 has toybox - not sure if it's just name change or totally different tool set that can have different parameters).

probably miui 7.9.14 supports button remaping and gestures.
But i'm not gonna port it since i've read something about bad memory + battery managment (on Redmi notes 3 forums)
