I too had problem w the mobile data, and the APN setting screen kept crashing. Installed the APN OnOff widget that crashed too. Then the Tweakker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tweakker) kicked it on the butt and finally I could use the APN settings and create one.

Something is still not right though bcoz the APN OnOff widget still crashes (who cares now) and the System started to pop up the crash report dialog :/

by the way I could change the Settings to tablet layout (2 panes) by choosing 720p layout in Hybrid settings.

A promising rom w some (very) rough edges :)

Sorry zeelog but this rom sucks :) too much reboots, settings still crushing when i turn wifi on, my statusbar didint work today (i did a reboot and it's fine now). i will back to cm 10.1 or 7. Maybe one day i'll back to this ROM :)

P.S. i know that my english sucks too :P

I have been using it since release WITHOUT a full wipe from PAC, and even that way it's much more stable than PAC. I don't have any of those problems with this rom.

Bullshit is what your comment sounds like.

How can you use the latest uploaded rom over the previous one without a full wipe.

PS: PAC Man Rom and Rootbox Rom are two different roms entirely.

Not so much, they both build on the same 3 roms, the main difference is that PAC seemingly mostly relies upon PA/Cyanogen, while Rootbox seems to base itself more on AOKP. If you turn of settings that could clash with each other or possibly wouldn't work on the other rom like PAC-in-Black, it works very well without a wipe. I had done it on my own responsibility, and there may be people who can't manage the upgrade, that's why a full wipe is still recommended for the average user.

Think it again: Both roms use code the same code parts from PA, thid component won' t be a trouble. But for example, rootbox uses AOKP alternives of the CM stuff found in PAC, and they MAY or MAY NOT cause trouble. For example, if the battery icon you have set in pac has a higher index than the largest index in rootbox for the same settings, the systemui would most probably crash, because it can't find the resource, and since it should find it all the time until it's set with the settings app, the developer has no reason to write exception handling for it.

Moreover rootbox rom has it's own settings menu inside system settings which pac man rom never had.......

Update works fine after clearing data for contact storage, I recommend to backup PA settings before installation because I lost them during the upgrade.

i said the the same thing before as well ..... it didn't work no matter how many times i switched mobile data on and off and reboot didn't do any benefit either ;although i have not tried the latest 12th july update, if anyone using the latest version could confirm it would be helpful .

Anyways except that this rom is great.

Replacing file didn't make any effect. Internet started working after manually configure access point.

check the file permissions

Permision is OK, fight3r, just open that file, find your network and manually enter settings in "Access Point Names".

Swipe lockscreen to the left, then place widget you want. About shortcuts on lockscreen ring... I can't find how to set up this...

thanks, might include it in future releases ;)

to create lockscreen ring shortcuts: settings > rom control > lockscreen > touch/swipe bottom part of lock ring to select targets, for lockscreen shortcuts: settings > rom control > ribbons > lockscreen ribbons - & add shortcuts (+), followed by save (icon on right under lockscreen ribbon title)
