oddly enough my partitions show up if i run "fdisk -l" as root on them, seems to make them appear in the file manager then, but my user doesn't have permissions to view sd-ext, so i think i need to tweak udev.
actually this rom seems to have awful battery life - as in about 1% per minute, even tried a new battery. i've got to give it some more time though.
i've found that there's a setting to *actually* turn wifi off when your phone is asleep rather than just *saying* wifi is turned off via the icon, that's helping a bit but mobile standby is killing me, the same as 4.3, data is off so i'm going to try 2g only mode.
i used to get a week or more from standby but i think that was cm9 (and not airplane mode which is pretty useless as you can't receive calls.)
edit: actually only used 6% overnight, so the wifi off during standby setting and 2g only mode did the trick.
as for the time taken to turn on when you have a call - it was like that in 4.3, a good 2secs or so.
yup i heard something like that too - they're making google+ into so many things (photo editor etc.) that its gone native at least in part. i don't really miss it, google+ is a barren wasteland anyway.
yup solved it now thanks. i've got to say 4.3 is the most flaky android i've ever used. google+ won't even start, everything seems really slow too. time i got a nexus5, although i'd prefer a smaller phone.
p.s. i don't mean anything against konstat's work, i think its 4.3 itself not the blade port.
anyone finding they can't install gapps even with a 185mb /system using the latest build? no error or anything, they're just not installed when i reboot from recovery. tried with the previous build too.
edit: ignore, fecking tpt helper didn't work, still got 160mb
konstat, have you got a list of the gerrit patches to be applied these days - working through the changelog is not very clear as to which ones are even relevant anymore, obviously your ones included in the build from github make sense.
