- Open Gapps Nano are built-in
- The name of the ROM is historical really
- My first ROM was for the Kindle HDX - called HDX Nexus ROM and was AOSP based.

- I have put some screenshots up on the OP. You need to click on Screenshots to view them.
- I used SuperSU 2.5.2 but I don't see why 2.6.6 wouldn't work.

New ROM... I'm currently happy with your cm12.1... Does cm12. 1 have more free space than this AOSP ROM?

Thanks!
