    i use VLC Beta 16 works flawlessly on cm11 4.4.2 as MX is incompatible with atm and not only for video VLC replace Apollo or google music without any problems

    Something that is very annoying: Someone links to a youtube video on facebook. You play it, it links to facebook in the web browser, then links you to m.youtube.com and then it opens the youtube app. It doesn't take very long, but it's still annoying as shit.

    i play 10 bit H264 anime over wifi, positional subtitles and software decoded 5.1 surround sound.


    MX player is the only one that can do it lag free.

    MX player is winnar for decoding speed.

    Depends whether it is a direct link to Youtube or some Facebook link that ultimately points to Youtube.

    Paired my phone to the car but noticed music playback get a lot choppy, cant hear a thing most of the time as if the Bluetooth signal the phone emits is very weak.
    don't know whats causing it as it was fine on Samsung's ROM, investigating further.....

    EDIT: returned voltages\Freq to stock, signal improved a tiny bit but still chops, guess i'll be trying temasek's rom, because BT is one thing i use often and if that didn't work i might revert to the original once they release the 4.3

    common with cm : set the minimal CPU frequencies on 300mhz+ (and no its not the Bluetooth signal but the soundchip who chope)

    on Temasek's cm11 it's also like that. and the locking/unlocking sound distort the music for a short time (realy short) but it's not a big problem.

    one thing not recommended to revert to the original or the next official Samsung 4.3 but wait on custom 4.3 with the driver of the Samsung 4.3, the only positive point in a official releas is : custom roms devs can use them as base and remove all the crap that the manufacturer put in.

    but the choice is yours ofc

    remember , touchwizz : heavy not needed non ergonomic unnatural. Nothings beat a good launcher like the stock android or nova (i use Nova and i uninstalled the stock one from the Temasek with a root uninstaller) its sad that customer get used to Touchwizz ... me i can't stand it :D

    for me : i can't revert back to 4.3 and under, 4.4.2 suits all my needs and i couldn't find any bug or major fault on the build i try (ofc there is some little things but as long as i have a workaround to avoid them i don't care)

    the 4.3 has been released (the "fixed" *cough cough* one) in Germany and England it seems

    edit: using Boeffla's kernel with Battery saving preset active and CPU to 500-1000mhz no choppy sound for me and i dont even get the distortion when i lock the phone (i wonder if its the speed workaround or the fact that i use VLC instead of Apollo )

    yep those are the right threads q little waiting time and i post the Gdrive for the right kernel and gapps (dont mistake 4.4.2 offer better performances but doesn't change that much over 4.3 touch and feel but for me downgrading is not an option, if it doesn't concern nostalgic build in computer :roll: )

    Kernel
    http://boeffla.df-kunde.de/sgs3/boeffla-kernel-cm/cm11.0_download/Test/ gdrive is obstinate ... it keep opening the zip instead of asking for a DL ... but not for the gapps --- so here you have the Cm11 beta 3 and 4)
    Gapps
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7gCYtabyNrnWlExLWpWZS1sSlU/edit?usp=sharing

    also about the powering for bluetooth and soundchip i don't think so ... i have a lightUV settings and no chops

    and thanks to you i see the kernel beta3 r2p3 was discontinued and the offcial Cm11 implemented Mali GPU drivers! weee new flash!!! thankies!

    check your screen off idle MHz, some kernels have a specific BT setting and you'll want at least 400MHz for it to work smooth.

    not always. my s4 has a different kernel, but i can set idle, screen off, and bluetooth/music to seperate frequencies - so say, its 100Mhz if screen off, but 400 if music is playing or BT connected.

    xD, got it installed and looks good so far, and i'll make sure min freq is at least 400MHz this time :p
    Not that i care but for the heck of it ran a quick antutu test on dalvik and got 18721 and a second run after rebooting to ART 18809o_O buuut never mind that

    still getting used to it but one thing i noticed missing in the quick setting menu is the power menu shortcut "the one that pops up when holding the power button"
    i guess it was an added feature from crdroid's cm 10.2 rom you gave me though i can still live without it :rolleyes:

    EDIT: is it possible to remove the google search widget from home screen ?

    which is the lower frequency in the control app :) i do 500-1000 on battery saving preset 1day 22hrs 38min on it atm and 30% left

    yes but you have to install a alternative launcher like Nova (the one i use atm)

    for antutu i wonder, i did 20820 on 4.4 with beta2 then 20340 on 4.4.1 beta3 and now 19961 on 4.4.2 beta4 (always on ART tho)

    you can remove the google search by removing the apk file with a root explorer. iirc its velvet.apk for some roms, and google search widget by name if you use an app

    well if he want to keep google search for other purpose: installing Nova launcher is safer, tho using a root uninstaller to remove the original launcher or freezing it with Ti backup to see if it does weird behavior before uninstalling it is also an alternative
