- Really dig the new blue CM boot animation.
- Choice of launchers.
- ROM usage is way better. To have this tablet have almost 500mb available at times when running is really good.
- You Tube is snappy and sound is great.
- All the Amazon apps work: Amazon Android Market APK, Cloud Drive, Kindle app.
- Movies play great on Netflix, Crackle and Tube Mate as well as playing personal movies with the internal player.
- Downloading works fine.
- Browser is fast and without glitches.
- Some real classy wallpaper choices.
Could not use my VPN (Private Internet Access) I tried updating Binaries through Super User (just to see if it would work.) Same response as last time when no root access could be given. Not sure what the deal is with my VPN. No servers had any latency when I can normally see a percentage amount.
Screen flips in portrait mode (listed known issue.) Just in case folks want to give a full test run before that's patched, the rotating screen does not happen in portrait mode. Also just touching the apps to run them in landscape mode does not rotate the screen.
After tinkering with it for some time, launcher one lost the widget settings and keeps FC to the point it was no longer uasable. Launcher 3 did not have this problem.
It's a dang fine ROM for the first drop. I gave it the best test I could. Thank you for your continuing efforts for our tablets, Hashcode.
