The two things which we should know before getting this amazing operating system on your android device are:

  1. You need to reboot your device twice if you want Calendar app to sync with Google.
  2. “Please Wait” tag will never end if you manually select a mobile network, you can press back button after some seconds and that will be okay!

Known issues

  • Selecting a Mobile network manually will cause the ‘Please wait…’ dialog to stay even after the phone registered to the network. Just hit the ‘home’ button to make the dialog vanish.
  • Syncing the Calendar with google may not work on a fresh 4.4 installation. Reboot your phone 2 times and it should be fine. (Seems to be a gapps issue, there is nothing i can do about it  )
