Hi Guys,

Just curious as to why N7000 suddenly (well, a few months ago now) got dropped support from the PAC guys....???

I thought PACROM's were blind-built on the whole, much like how CM builds are... And providing it still has a device tree, it doesn't matter if their is no maintainer...??

Much like when PACROM went from JellyBean to KitKat, I believe someone from the official PAC team said, if it's supported under JB, it'll be continued supported under KK....

Even if it was dropped because their is no maintainer, why did the old builds have to disappear too...??? Odd??

Would be great to see it come back, ready for Lollipop builds... please someone, make it happen...

thanks, Lister

We never allowed blind-builds for PAC. Your maintainer probably didn't update his threads and that's why it got dropped from nightly.

Hi Nick0703,

Thanks for the prompt reply... Oh, I see... So there will be no further updates, unless a new maintainer for N7000 makes an appearance...?? Who was the previous maintainer for N7000, if you can remember...?

Pity, would of been fun to see Android 5 PAC on N7000....

Cheers, Lister

Hi @Nick0703,

Even though the rom files for our device had long been removed, even for old time sake?? I see our build /N7000 folder has now also gone...?

Any idea's who the previous maintainer was please...??

The last couple of releases, I've had to resort to dodgy Chinese builds for the i9220 device. Which, although they do work (and grateful to the Chinese person who builds them), they contain a lot of Chinese Apps.... and the Keyboard input method needs replacing after flashing...

It would be great to find a more solid and reliable maintainer....

Thanks, Lister
