    :eek::eek::eek:

    Back in the day, like 6 months ago pre-CG, I was a Broken user :oops: and it was a great ROM.I just ignored the dev´s if not their entire G+ page and used it happily but after CG and their singling out of OPO users as the only ones who ask questions and of course the sad, childish, hardman,we-so-bad-and-curse-a-lot attitude ,I was forced to just ignore their existence on principal.F*** ´em.

    Yes, "F*** ´em" is my feeling also, what a shame because it is an really good ROM.
    But the manner they are treating OPO user particularly, who needs them...

    Well that was a short lived experiment.I flashed Mokee, which took a really long time btw,like 9 minutes o_O, and all seemed to be well and good. In fact it seemed to be quite snappy and smooth but a little disappointing really as it´s basically CM 6 with very little extra.But I decided to set everything up anyway only to find that nomatter what I did Titanium just would not restore anything,it just stayed at 0% endlessly.I uninstalled and reinstalled it but the same result.I checked every possible reason why it wouldn´t work but no, nothing. So as it didn´t seem worth the effort, it really is like CM nightly with little else, I restored SlimSaber back to its rightful place:)

    Thanks, so I have no need to try it :D
    Unless some other ROM worth of trying, I'll stick to Sultan's 06/12...

    So, on what is everyone on ? Currently on SlimSaber 6.0.1 and it's ok, I hate all the useless features like OmniSwitch or that kind of things, plus I couldn't use OpenGapps, Setup Wizard fc... But it's ok

    On the same and don´t like OmniSwitch either but I do like the ROM.

    Having said that I am on the lookout for something different but what that is I don´t know yet:D

    The latest build of SlimSaber is really solid folks. In fact, I'd say the most stable build of any Marshmallow I've tried so far.
    Edit, and with Donkey kernel>zzmove cpu governer>yank battery (2) profile it's even better.

    So tell me @KforHorizon how is SlimSaber behaving on stock kernel?
    On Donkey it rocks, best battery, stability and general smoothness I've had on any ROM for a loonngg time.

    It's good.. Better than say a month ago but I'm still reserving my word for sometime later! I hope it's really good! My battery is dying now tbh so it gets a little difficult for me to say for sure how good is it!

    I thought the same thing not long ago but the SlimSaber/Donkey combination has changed my mind. It also noticed that it charges much faster now, like in 1.5 hours.

    @theshinybeast @KforHorizon hows it going people. My opo got smashed to bits and the flashaholic in me is getting tortured using the wife's old iPhone 5s. On the market for a new device. Advice? Looking at the nexus 6p and it looks mighty fine. And I know this may be akin to sacrilege but the note 5 also beckons.

    Go for the nexus 6p or yu yutopia or the OnePlus Two.
    If i were you.. I'd use the 5s until a SD 820 packed phone was out! Most probably the Xiaomi MI5

    My Favourite smartphones of the year :-
    Nexus 6P
    LG V10
    LG G4
    OP2
    Moto X style

    YU Yutopia is intriguing and if it's as good as the specs suggest it is it'll jump above LG G4 in the hierarchy!
    PS: i don't like samsung a lot but if you do? Go for the note 5 but 6P is the boss!

    so far i have pretty much detested all samsung devices for the inevitable lag that sets in after a few months of usage. Just that lately it seems touchwhizz has been scaled down. Only downside is never having an AOSP rom even if i root it.
    The iPhone just doesnt cut it. Its way way too locked down for my taste.
    Shying away from the OPO 2 only because support here in india is atrocious. parts are priced more than the phone itself.
