My opinion:
Many android users like me wish to explore different type of UI on their devices. I have used this ROM for about 5 days on my k4 and I was very annoyed by its bugs. Therefore, I suggest you to wait for another ROM to be developed by the Lenovo developers. This is just my opinion, if you wish to have fun with this ROM then you can proceed and get it on your k4 note.
