What is the whole point of listing all the crimes he is aware of in his local area?  The dogs as well why go through what his selection processes and reasons for for the dogs he got?  Let me tell you I have a bunch of crime around my home, there are several gangs and shootings and the whole bit. I have personally been car jacked, my home as a young child was broken in to at night while I was there, and my parents vehicles had been stolen multiple times [even the same ones several times if we were lucky to recover them].

Yet I do not own a gun, and if I did and I was in my home [keep in mind I am physically handicapped including my legs and lower back to a severe degree] I would be SURE to tell who it was I was aiming a deadly weapon at before attempting to use it. What if a bullet passed through a wall and hit and killed a neighbor?   I just don't get where they are going with listing all the crimes he was aware of.  Is it so he can say oh everyone is out to get me so I had good reason to blindly fire at a closed door?  The crime was soo bad it made me paranoid?  You are a WORLD TRAVELLING ATHLETE WHO MAKES VERY GOOD MONEY, IF YOU FEEL UNSAFE IN YOUR CITY, TOWN, STATE AND/OR COUNTRY YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO?  M     O       V          E.  Know what you do not do?  try to say that somehow your personal responsibility to your significant other, your neighbors and society in general is somehow removed because the news scared you.

Talk about user hand holding, why not create a tutorial app those who don't know paranoid features could take a tour and those who know their personal settings aren't bothered with extra screens we don't need?

This is RIDICULOUS, the 215 program has not helped to capture any terrorists, it basically does violate the constitution, and we are spending millions if not BILLIONS to build Zeta-byte level storage centers [which since it's centralized I really hope no crackers get in and get access to this system and use it for negative actions against our country like the multitude of NSA, and other government officials who have been caught ILLEGALLY spying on their SIGNIFICANT OTHERS if they can do this to their loved ones what is going to happen to those of us they could care less about?!], AND ALL OF THIS is going to also allow all these ISPs to restrict in a variety of ways the internet traffic that passes through our country which could also hinder our ability to use it to do anything positive about natural disasters, attacks and what not if you start making it more expensive to use the internet and people begin to be able to not afford it and because of this barrier to using the internet.  WHICH ALSO would in turn hurt their ability to collect ANY metadata in turn since people will not be as able to even access and use the internet as they would if it remains free.  There are like a dozen catch 22s and oxymoronic ideas flying through this whole concept that it makes me dizzy and my brain hurt.  How about the government go and get people who understand the internet and technologies and all the impacts and all that this can cause.  I mean at least as a balance to the overly paranoid view of a military person or politician more worried about looking weak and having to get re-elected during all this.

At the very least this should be a JUDICIAL branch project that takes a good amount of time and consideration by those who can find and listen to those with knowledge they need to help make this program work right [or realize how bad it would be and do away with it] by people without outside pressures that could cause a haphazard horribly done job that ends up doing EVEN MORE damage than if we took the time to deliberate this issue correctly without undo outside influences of money and popularity.

I live paranoid, Halo with Immersive mode would be awesome so notifications can be seen without having to wake the whole UI when in the middle of things just to see the latest spam message. Also using Flo is solid soo far, but for the second most used ROM around why does it takes SOO long for updates? Then when they hit they are just a very lightly barely modified stock version with Super SU added? Kills me I hit refresh each day and nothing, no halo, no pie, no paranoid settings. Kind of a shame I purchased the beta settings unlock key when there are none to unlock. I LOVE paranoid and have done ROM development myself so I know it can be a pain and will hang in there but no update in the least in over a week is killing me when my phone uses CM11 and gets nightly (sometimes they do skip a day, but it has sweet substantive changes (see changelog each day), and yet Not even a hint of an update on my brand new tablet leaves me scratching my head as my phone is over 2 years old running daily builds of 4.4.2 and my 4 month old tablet waits and waits.

Instructions: 

# UPDATE RECOVERY

# As usual grab our latest version of GApps - http://paranoidandroid.co/gapps/

# If you are coming from Android version 4.3, Stock 4.4 or another ROM, it is recommended that you factory reset before flashing.

# While there are new radios and bootloaders for 4.4 they are an optional upgrade.
Sorry, I don't have any links.

# If you are on an unofficial build, (yes) you can perform a dirty flash.
Latest fixes were added over the weekend. If your build is fresher than that, they should be about the same

# Maguro Users if you are using unofficial builds for Maguro, you should definitely flash this as it contains fixes that only made it to our Git Repo today.

Toro and ToroPlus will come later, we haven't abandoned them

Oppo Find5 / N1 +Aaron Gascoigne  is working on it

If your device is not mentioned above then it is not supported by the main development team of ParanoidAndroid. As such, we cannot give you a timelime for when or if a build will be made available.

#StayParanoid

F***ing Halftard S**thead! If you are constantly checking, then you'll see exactly why, when PA tells u! 4.4 is a major change, therefore is taking very hard work + major changes. You should be thanking them instead of writing stupid s**t. Try reading PA's G+ page, it explains all u need to know.

This is all just very odd, not to discount his emotion, but the "crying" at the beginning sounds very forced and it seems to miraculously stop after he vomits in to a trash can.  The vomiting also seems to point to his feeling of some kind of guilt over the shooting moreso than feeling he made a mistake.  This is all opinion don't get me wrong, I just can't reconcile how we have people hearing her scream and how if he were yelling for robbers to leave while holding a gun in his hand why was he soo soo frightened?  Even with no legs if someone came near him he had a gun, and that should have allowed him the time and ability to slow down and better determine what was truly going on and not be soo frightened of a random robber which he wasn't even totally sure of.  I mean it could have been the wind or other cause for a slamming door if he truly had not seen anything in the bathroom why would he have blindly fired in to it not knowing in the least what was there?  All this makes me think they were having an argument and his anger which he is known to have an extremely short fuse [especially with this poor woman as they had a DOCUMENTED history of domestic issues including yelling, screaming, and I believe hitting] and this overrode his ability to think clearly and in anger this occurred and now he is trying to find every tiny thing to absolve his personal responsibility which EVEN IF IT HAPPENED EXACTLY AS HE SAID HE IS PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HER DEATH AND SHOULD HAVE SOME PENALTY FOR ENDING A HUMAN LIFE EVEN IN ERROR.  Maybe he should seek mental help for all these little issues that he lists as causing him to blindly fire in to a room he had no idea of what was going on in.  It is not like there was a robber he saw and chased or spoke with at any point during this whole time that night.

Kills me how Bill seems to take Jon Stewart's reporting personally and keeps trying to refute what he reports.  The issue I see is Stewart and the Daily Show uses research and comedy just as a delivery vehicle to present what they find.  O'Reilly seems to lean on his personal opinion without seeming to even research any of what he says.  I love in the clip this comment is on Bill brings a person on his show to try and show how "Stewart is wrong I am right".  She continues to say well they do text more,  While she does this he just talks over her stating I can't imagine I can't imagine and then So I am right and Stewart is wrong and while he is saying that the women is still trying to explain that that is not the case, but they just cut the segment and her mic off short.  Bill Oreilly is a trip and needs to stop taking someone reporting on something he may not agree with as a personal attack.

Folks, for anyone with a nexus 7 2013 (Flo) who wants Android 4.4.2 WITH HALO (paranoid 3.99 version of). I found a ROM which has it fully embedded and working. Immersive mode with HALO is sweet.

Can't wait for newer Halo to hit, but if you're like me and crack flash this should help scratch your itch while waiting: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2585889&page=1

Since word seems to have spread: Regarding the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 (T-989). Yes, I have one and yes, I will be trying to get a stable CM9 build running on it.

Fair warning that this can only be a spare time task for me right now and I have a lot of priority projects right now, so it likely won't be quick. If anyone out there would like to help, that is great - let me know. Otherwise, I will do what I can.

I will update on progress, but please continue to be patient. :-)
