    If you have problem with SOUND…please… do this :

    1. Update CWM Recovery (from Odin)

    2. Use kernel -> perseus alpha v13 raw2 (from Odin)

    And Who those people have problem with security Information, “The Device Has Detected an…bla bla…” please..Do uninstall KNOX related app using Titanium Backup…

    Hope this help….

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Knox msgs can be removed through Wanam Xposed App, no need to uninstall them.

      I’m not sure about this, but i think all the people having sound issues came from Perseus kernel, did you try to flash a Stock Kernel then flash mine?

      • ageng kadharman

        Thanks for ur information Wanam…

        Actually, I haven’t yet flashing a stock kernel…I just did flash your ROM…

        • ageng kadharman

          As I promise,..I flashed the stock rom and then your rom…the result is EXCELENT…there is no problem with sound…Just follow your steps above…nothing more… 😀
