Almost every feature is reported to be working except the ‘ART’ runtime support which is also broken on the official leaked kitkat firmware. However its not really an issue to enjoy this ROM. This custom ROM is just 3 days old and its already in version 4, that means this ROM is getting frequent updates and bug fixes.
If you flash this ROM on your Ascend P6 please let us know about what you think and it will be helpful for the other readers too.
