  1. Quick query- this ROM is based on Android 4.4.4, so is it okay to flash Lollipop Gapps as per Step-8 in the Instruction guide above? I am pretty new to this domain of root, custom ROM installation, so please overlook my ignorance.

  2. @Ritesh>> Upon clicking the link to download the Slimkat ROM, it redirects to me a site where it reads “No files available yet for this category!”. Please can you provide a working download link?
