1. How to enable air command?

- Hold capacitive menu button

2. How to use multi window?

- Drag 2 apps from sidebar to home screen

3. How to hide/show sidebar?

- Long press back key button for 2-3 seconds

4. How to install OTA update(s) after downloading?

- Uncheck wipe data and wipe cache before installing OTA update(s).

5. Why Unfortunately, SystemUI has stopped?

- If you have facebook messenger installed, just drag the chat head(s) down to close it. Then reopen facebook messenger in app drawer to restore System UI back to normal.

- Another workaround is to install Xposed Installer/Framework and Gravity Box [JB] then activate it in Xposed Installer modules then reboot. Open Gravity Box and select Navigation keys actions and set Home key Long-press action to Show recent apps.

- It is also recommended to install Xposed and GravityBox or other modules in Internal Memory for proper functioning. Read next question about Xposed/GravityBox.

- Branded Android devices from known companies like HTC, SAMSUNG, SONY, etc. also encounter this problem when facebook messenger is installed.

6. Why Led indicator (sms/call notifications at top) is not working for incoming missed-call or missed-sms?

- Open Light Manager (included in rom) and change LED color to "Green" for CALLS and SMS and also run Test to check color. LEDs of A116 can show only two colors, Green and Red, so do not change to any other color, else LED LIGHTS will not work.

7. FONTS option in settings does Force Closes. What to do?

- The Fonts option in settings is related to iFont App. Just install from playstore and it will work. You may also need to restart phone and clear Dalvik Cache. It was tested ok but missed in this first build upload.

8 - Xposed / Gravity Box not working?

A- Xposed works perfect in this rom. But make sure that Xposed Installer and all its modules are installed in Internal memory and not sd card.
____1) Run App Manager and Move "Xposed Installler" and "Graviti Box" or all other modules to Internal Memory.
____2) Run Xposed and in Frameworks again Run "INSTALL/UPDATE" and reboot.
____3) Now just UNCHECK Gravity Box and RE-CHECK Gravity Box and again reboot.
This works perfect on this rom too and is tested ok, though installed modules other than GravityBox.
This method works on other roms too.

9 - I can's see or setup Live Wallpaper. Why?

A - For some strange reason it was excluded from the rom, but as some people may still want it, here is the patch only for Colossus Rom on any ported model

10 - How to enable or disable sidebar and run two apps in MultiWindow?

A - To get familiar with sidebar watch this video
And to know how to use MultiWindow via Sidebar watch this video

11 - Why phone eats too much of RAM?

A - Rem Zej's Tip of this: After playing heavy games or using heavy apps, just put your phone into sleep for 5s to kill all background cached processes then wake it up again to have a fresh and clean memory system no need to restart your phone. Reference
12 - My GPS is not connecting in India/out of India. What to do?

A- GPS works perfect in India without any workaround, Tested ok. The basic GPS+EPO setup is explained in this post...
