Awesome awesome!! Been waiting in anticipation for this will try as soon as possible!

EDIT: Ok, I have only had limited time to test. But briefly put things looks promising here:

Installed without any problems (using latest TWRP in my case).The same bugs that exist in CM 11 are also present here, which is it to be expected (e.g. broken video playback). This is perfectly natural for such an early release and no doubt these will get sorted out as development progress. I am glad to try out this early build. For an alpha it seems very stable and definitely looks promising! I initially tried the official Slim Gapps (as linked to). They seemed fine. Since then I have installed ART compatible Gapps from the CM thread (13/11 i believe). Now running in ART runtime mode. Yes this does introduce some problems and not all apps are compatible, however from my experience ART also introduce a previously unseen level of smoothness. Will continue to use this the next days and of cause eagerly follow development.

@darkspadez (and all other other involved devs of cause): Congrazt on this first public SlimKat build for our phones!

Default help

I would love to try this ROM but can't seem to get my cmw recovery updated I down loaded the zip mentioned correct version thru ROMmanager and flashed it . But when I go to cmw recovery it still shows older version. Tried flashing it with that but gives me the dead android. Have to restore

I am using latest twrp recovery found here in the RAZR development forum. I can't say if this the best option though. I can only say that in my case it worked fine (install, backup and restore).

I'm one of the devices running the buggy EMMC.

Error is the same as all the others (I wish there were a kernel fix for it):

set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed

Back to the drawing board...

I was flashing fine with cwm 6.0.3.6 for the epinter build. I did finally update, but I had to use a .bat file in conjunction with a special fastboot.exe file to actually upgrade the recovery, because otherwise it would just fail to upload. I was having backup issues with TWRP, so I just stick with CWM now. Haven't had any issues. If you want to try that .bat .exe combo I found, let me know.
