  • Arxeta

    the thing i dont like about this rom is that there is no battery mod..also i dont like the signal icon

    • http://www.andro-build.org/ Prashanth Sadasivan

      There are many external battery mods.Search in XDA or in the Facebook group.I can’t do anything about the signal icon.
