Black screen on Waze/Flipboard

I was wondering why Waze goes into black screen after clicking the report button along with Flipboard, after coming back from recently opened apps. I found out that these apps will go into this state on mostly de-odexed ROMs, I did however tried on my stock odexed samsung ROM, xxltc recently released somewhere around January I think.

What came to my surprise was that Waze didn't go into black screen. Rather, it just performs normally. If you're on the de-odexed ROM, chances to get the black screen is quite high. To get the normal behavior, you need to relaunch the app again.

Xxlta instabilities on custom ROM

Last time my phone running on SweetROM v11 (I think), repeatedly having a ROM crash up until I can't go into the normal screens and stuck on the samsung screen only. The only way is to revert back to an older nandroid backup which is quite annoying when these kept on happening until I found a good solution.

aegisub, .ass and .srt (subtitle)

Subtitling is something not very easy to do and there are quite a few numbers of subtitle file format that are used and the widely used formats are SRT and SUB. AEGISUB is a state of the art subtitle authoring tools (I think so) for their supports of live preview, audio wave display and some other features. However, aegisub by default uses a .ass subtitle file format and this file format are not widely used but supported by several conventional codecs.
