this rom no longer uses ezio optimizations

09 Dec 2015:
This rom uses ezio optimizations, which causes Xposed not to work.
if you want a rom with Xposed, this rom is not for you.
If you don use Xposed, this is a very good rom.

First let me say thanks for this ROM! I have found that I am having same issue with video on it as I had with the CM 12.1 ROM, using VLC to play videos I have to disable hardware acceleration to play any MP4 format videos and for MKV format files I have to turn it back on.
Beyond that seems quite fast and working well.

This is one of the only reasons I haven't installed one of these custom roms yet.

Just wanted to ask if it was theoretically possible for slim6 to run on the Amazon Fire?
I think that Doze will probably make this tablet into something that lasts longer than 2hrs SoT

I installed using supplied instructions and have a bug to report:

When the screen turns off it flashes the screen in the orientation 90 degrees from it's current orientation. So if it is in landscape and I press the power button, it flashes portrait and then screen off. If it is in portrait, it flashes landscape and then screen off. Totally superficial as far as I can tell, but wanted to let you know. Will continue to test.

Same on both custom ROMs.
