Ah I guess it's just me then :D I used the gapps in the first post, tried fresh install twice and still had issues w/ Home button & touchscreen (I misspoke: they weren't dead zones, just onscreen buttons that didn't work for some reason.) I've gone back to Kra1os' ROM because for me it's still the smoothest overall, but keep up the good work.
My Home button isn't working with this ROM and there are some issues swiping to get to the Notification Power Controls. There seems to be some dead zones on my touch screen. Is anyone else experiencing these issues?
