OK, well. No idea why the heck it didn't work last night but it worked fine just now. Whole process took like 3 minutes. Wasn't even enough time to go get a beer.
Well, looks like I spoke too soon. It boot sup to the Monster screen and then just stops. It never continues on. Anyone have any suggestions?
I flashed it again and this time it gave me the sphere after the update and then came up. One thing I notice is that some of the fonts seem hard to read in the Play Store. Not sure if that's because of the DPI setting change or what. Nice to see such a small list of apps when I view the All Apps page.
