    Hi. First of all its awesome to see this update for a phone that is from 2013. I followed the instructions to install and everything went smoothly. the only thing I have noticed on my sghm919 after install is the time is randomly changing in the statusbar (not a big deal if its not a indication of a larger issue). the other odd thing is that when the device first booted up there was no welcome or setup menu to reinstall apps from google. is this intended? or should I repeat the process. that said the new rom is great. especially the new menu screen, offering much more at glance info than the previous 6.0

    Hi Tim, I am glad that this guide worked for you.

    Stay subscribed to this topic to get instant updates. I will be keep on updating this as soon as there is a new release from the developer.

    The welcome screen will come on the first boot if Google Apps are installed. Have you installed Google applications package after updating the ROM?
