timmmay: That ROM linked to is 4.3, not 4.4/kitkat.


Yes that is what I said above

kiwitrc: I have been using Imperium 21.1 (4.3) for about a month and its been faultless. Battery is great, everything is smooth. I used Wanamlite Roms for a couple of years before that but am unlikely to go back now. Highly recommend it.


Installed Imperium v22 found under the older versions link on that page, as the link for the latest version was not working. Big file at 1.5GB but so many options during install for different versions of stock features. Like the S4 camera instead of the stock S3, S4 Gallery etc. A lot of Nexus stuff.
I wish I had read up more about the optimum choices to make before they came up.  I can always redo the install when the latest version is back online.

It had the features I had seen and liked in 4.4 anyway. Running well.  Couple of things I miss like home button snoozing for the alarm but i have assigned that to the volume button, I just have to remember not to hit the home button as it closes the alarm screen but not the sound.

Thanks again.

Thanks, didnt realise there was a version 22. You can tweak all sorts of things under wanam exposed as well as the actual imperium app that will be in your apps list.

EDIT: Just found V23.1 as well. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2135852&page=206

That will be next on my list to try.

Was impressed by a 4% battery drain overnight.  Possibly down to the greenify settings I added to disable background services from some apps.

I have Llama put my S4 into airplane mode overnight, battery drop is usually around 2%, sometimes 3%. Requires rooted phone I think.

I turn mine off, or put it on charge, battery drop is either almost 0% or it actually goes up on charge :)

It doesn't work so well as an alarm clock when turned off... unlike Nokia phones. That's a pretty handy feature, an integrated alarm clock that works when the phone is otherwise off.

Yeah you are right but I dont use it as alarm. I have played with NFC tags to do the same thing and they work well, put one on a wireless charger and got the best of both worlds.

Mine just goes on silent with sync off, so 4 - 5% is pretty decent considering I used to go down about 20% or more under my old OS.

I can't stop playing with it so many ptions and customisations to mess about with.

Wish the alarm had the gentle pre-alarm sounds like my last OS but it's a small sacrifice.
