  8. How long does it take to reboot?

  9. vesharmen says:

    it’s rebooting for 20 minutes already, is it ok?

    • Well this is a custom ROM, you may need to reboot your device manually for the first time after installing this ROM.

  10. How much time it would take for the first rebooting?

    • It is unpredictable Raghav, so if it doesn’t reboot automatically for the first time, you may do that manually.

  11. Isn’t Jellybean’s memory requirement 512MB? The Y only has 290MB of RAM.
