As fas as I remember, there is no significant bugs but one: Maybe you will feel full of lags when using this ROM. The heavy lags on HiTech v2 ROM is come because the zRAM size is too way big about 1 Gigabyte, and our little Samsung Galaxy V specs cannot handle it. To fix this you must decrease the zRAM size to below 200 MB.
How to fix the zRAM size so it not lagging our Samsung Galaxy V phone? The easiest way is by using kernel manager app, example is Kernel Adiutor. In kernel manager application like Kernel Adiutor, we can set how big the zRAM size, and you can set it to any number below 200 MB to fix the heavy lags on this ROM.
