So glad I flashed the latest firmware 4.4.2 kitkat and I then rooted and flashed X-Note 8 rom. Runs so smooth and has a few extra feature's within 4.4.2 namely the status bar icons are now white-When you play music the lock screen shows the cover art full screen and new emoji's.
The Green toggles still remain but as I have rooted and flashed that is no issue for me and for some that don't mind TW.
Overall procedure is easy to flash although I did soft brick as I used the wrong custom recovery but other than that a great setup and im now very happy :-)
