Default [REQ] I'm looking for ParanoidAndroid 2.54 (grouper) ROM

Hi, I've been looking for PA 2.54 + gapps for JB 4.1.x (for grouper) so I would really appreciate if anyone have this zips. I kept them for a long time and accidentaly lost them so now I can't go back.

Yeah, I know this version is ancient but I don't care. It works flawlessly with bricked kernel and it gives me best battery life
Hope somebody still keeps old versions saved since PA has deleted everything older than v3.x from servers.
LG Nexus 5 D821 (32GB)
Recovery: TWRP 2.6.3.4
Kernel: ElementalX 0.36
ROM: Cataclysm 4.4.2
Modem: 1.0.25.0.23

Asus Nexus 7 ME370 (16GB)
Recovery: TWRP 2.3.2.1
Kernel: Franco r76
ROM: Stock 4.4.2

Since Paranoid Android 2.54 was the last update for JB 4.1.2 (last Android version wich had the Tablet-UI) I was searching it, too.

Seems like the only place the last zip "pa_grouper-2.54-08NOV2012-105356.zip" is hosted is a chinese mirror: http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shar...&uk=3255134358 (1. click on download button with 154.2M text 2. press grey button on pop up window)

Here's a list of ROMs an XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...+android+2+54+
-Only "[ROM] Dark ParanoidAndroid | 2.54 | 09.11.2012 | Per App System, Hybrid, blah. | Dev: DaXmax" seems to be 2.54.

Maybe helpful: I found this post of a "port from Nexus 7 grouper to Lenovo": http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...n-4-1-2-a.html - Maybe this guy has the old files?

Thank you so much! I won't even ask how did you find that chinese mirror, works like a charm. If anyone asks about gapps, they can be found here: http://goo.im/gapps (obviously).

Now, let me make a backup copy...

I found the Chinese mirror by doing a Google search on the complete zip file name. Easy!

It's so much better running Android 4.1.2 (PA 2.54) on the Nexus 7!

+ Flash support
+ ASOP browser (ICS browser)
+ Real Tablet-UI thanks to PA

I couldn't remember zip file name. Yeah, feeling is more buttery than stock kitkat - I used 4.4 for one week and it was full of small lags here and there. 4.1.2 + bricked 0.58 works waaay smoother. And I have CIFS support, again!

I'm using Multirom boot manager and left the 4.4 there but installed 4.1.2 as second but now have switched to autoboot to 4.1.2.

Facebook has a Tablet-UI I never saw before on my Nexus 7. Looks great!
