This is one of the first Roms to have come out for the s4, I didn't flash it at first as it had a few issues and I didn't trust the recovery options at the time. Well I finally got to flashing it.

There have been a few issues around mf8 and Wi-Fi not working, so I personally would recommend doing a complete wipe, flashing pre rooted stock by djemby(see ironass's thread) then through recovery flash omega v7.0.

Here is the list of what's in omega Rom :

Personally since I got a proper flash working, it's been flawless for me, I wanted the mod to stop sms converting to mms among others so I'm quite happy now :) battery went down quite quick initially this morning but I think that was because play store was set to automatically update apps, since then, after just over 12 hrs since flashing, 9 since unplugging, my battery is around 40% with reasonable usage, hopefully it will bed in a little better soon :)
 
Not flashed it yet but there is an update available, if anyone here is actually using this Rom! Lol personally I'm getting pretty good battery life,I think better than I had been with djembys as I've not had to change my battery over at work since Monday! Which for me is unusual!

Not sure if I should post this here (lots of dust on this topic ;)), but I've installed v12 of this rom last week and I like it!

There's only one thing that bothers me and that's the new camera app (Android 4.3 Camera). I can't seem to find the setting that allows me to store the pics and videos on my SD card... Am I missing something, or should I be looking in the generall settings (which, ofcourse, I've already done without success...).

Anybody using this app and knows how to fix this?
