Its AOSP with CAF stuff in it. Just flash one and if it doesn't boot reflash the ROM and flash the other.

Make a backup, flash. If it doesn't boot then it isn't compatible.

make a backup in recovery and just flash the darn kernel. if its not compatible, it wont boot. then you can either flash a known booting kernel or restore the backup you made in recovery. that's the quickest way to find your answer.

Haha this really is a good question though. I myself didn't know either. I had been under the impression it was full AOSP.

Last time I ran Franco kernel on it though all was fine.

Quite a few ROMs say AOSP but have CAF parts lol. Rarely are ROMs full CAF though, the only one that I know of is CM of course. Some AOSP kernels work with hybrids and some only do after modification.

An AOSP Dalvik will only boot up on full AOSP ROMs so it the Z2 Dalvik boots, it's full AOSP. If a CAF Dalvik boots, it's either hybrid or full. Nice way to tell

Ah thanks. I never really messed with the custom dalvik because I didn't see anything other benchmark gains.

Some people say general usage is slightly better, some say it doesn't help in general ui. Experience varies. Lol.
