    This V6 ROM is very good and work perfect on my S3 mini, thank you very much 🙂
    Just have one question, is it normal that i don’t have de option for edit the status bar?
    The option should be at the Display config but it’s not. By that i mean that i had no led notification and can’t chose which icons appear on my status bar.
