Introduction
I'm not really into writing long elaborate OP posts, so here it goes. This is an AOSP compiled, flashable ROM. This ROM is fast and smooth, it is not bloated with useless features. Lustrous ROM has features being added that make it even more useful. I put a lot of work and love into this rom, if you like it show me some support by donating!

First Time Install
  • Put the file onto your Internal Storage/USB-otg
  • Reboot into Recovery (CWM/TWRP)
  • "wipe data/factory reset"
  • "install zip" -> "install zip from sdcard" -> choose the .zip and confirm (Optional: Add the other zip to flash... TWRP Only I believe)
  • "Clear cache/bla bla bla"
  • Flash Gapps

I'm pretty sure it should be in Android Development though.

I thought this was the forum for Flo/Razor and the original development forum was was Grouper/Nakasi, although I may be mistaken.

EDIT: My mistake, it looks like they've changed the forums, been a while since I was last here.

Check the third post of the thread below, lots of resources for unlocking your bootloader, rooting and installing custom recoveries. Read read read and come back if you have any questions/need any help. There is also a toolkit by Wugfresh in the development section, which is pretty straight forward if you prefer.

I'm trying this one on my Nexus 7 2012. This is exactly what I was looking for (fast and lightweight).

So far performance is great! Good work!

There is some privacy guard to control app permission in the rom?
