  • Some settings menu not working -> use stock settings app
  • No camera app -> use any other camera app from the market

  • Flash/restore stock rom DATA to rom slot (optional, but restore partition if problems)
  • Flash thor-gapps-13.3.0.0-v2.zip if you are on firmware 13.3.0.0 or thor-gapps-13.3.2.4-v1.zip for firmware 13.3.2.4 ...

That would depend on there being a SafeStrap for the 8.9" version soon



This works great on my tablet BTW. Thanks!

Hmmm looks like I might be the first one to try this out. I'm downloading now and I'll report back when it's finished.

Update: Installed the ROM and immediately hit the Play Store. Tried to add an existing Google account but it caused a reboot. Right now I'm stuck on the calculator since I have no nav buttons
Update 2: Tried to enable Wifi, got another reboot.

I'm going back to my stock ROM slot for now, being unable to use the Nav buttons makes this a bit difficult.

The problem can only comes from the data partition. Did you try to first restore your stock data partition then flash the zip ?

No I did it the other way around, and the data restore failed.I I'll give it a try and report back. Thanks. Good work by the way.

Just tried it. ( Restoring data, flashing the zip).

I can see my apps from my stock ROM so I know the data restore was successful. I'm still missing the nav bar and Play Store still results in a reboot.

EDIT: Just tried it a second time and it seems to be working.

So unlike your flashable zip for the stock firmware this ROM gets rid of the Amazon Video App correct. Amazon video has Prime Instant Video Offline Downloading and that is a killer feature for me. Anyway to sideload that stock APK and have it work?
