This will be a spin-off of my previous Nexus 10 ROM ThunderKat, but from scratch and obviously based on Android 5.x.
I don't expect this to compete with the big boys (CyanogenMod, AOKP, Paranoid Android and the like) and this ROM will have a considerably limited feature-set compared to them. If you want a lot of customisations and configurations, they are definitely the way to go.
Please note that since this is a fully de-odexed ROM, it will take a while to boot up the first time. Please follow the installation instructions carefully.
IMPORTANT: Since I no longer own this device, I have not tested this. In my opinion it should work just fine since I am using the same code-base for my Nexus 9 builds, but if you are not sure, wait for feedback from others who are brave enough to take the plunge.
Due to my limited availability, I will now no longer support builds older than 2015/05/23
1. Update to Android AOSP 5.1.1_r3 (LMY48B)
2. Updated proprietary files and binaries from stock LMY47V ROM

5. Enhanced AOSP Launcher3 from OptiPop with features like customisable grid size, hide/show search bar & materialised settings

PLEASE FLASH THE Lollipopalooza_aosp_manta-LMY48B-20150523-BuildPropFix.zip IMMEDIATELY AFTER FLASHING THIS ROM. THIS WILL ONLY BE REQUIRED FOR THIS BUILD.

Lollipops are fun, but too much is not good for your health. If you chose to enjoy the Lollipops in this thread, remember that you do so at your own risk. I am not responsible for cavities, stomach aches or any other ailments your device may have if you use this ROM. I do test these Lollipops prior to releasing them, but I make no guarantees.
