Thumbs up
Ggow much appreciated that safetrap version is coming back!

Just to clarify that this rom will work with devices that got upgraded to 4.5.2 and then downgraded by ACS to 3.2.7/8 and rooted with safetrap working.

Here are some questions that I'm sure people will be curious about:
- I'm currently on 2.0.2 and root checker says root is enabled, but couldn't find the supersu app. How does it work? Do i need to flash supersu?
- Can you install xposed with modules on this version? For example to mod notifications bar, status bar, power menu, etc.
- can I safely upgrade from the older 2.0.2 to this version?
- what about addons like the dolby digital? I assume its safe to flash too?
- current build.prop ids the device as Nexus HDX and tgere are a lot of apps on play store that are not compatible with the device, but they work just fine installed from another market (say 1mobile). Can we do something about it?

Sorry for so many questions, but i tried reading most stuff from the other thread but for some reason search in thread is disabled (no idea why).

Cheerz!

Correct, yes.

The ROM is pre-rooted with the su binary and a daemon. SuperSU is a root manager so its up to you if want that functionality.


- Can you install xposed with modules on this version? For example to mod notifications bar, status bar, power menu, etc.

Yes you can.


- can I safely upgrade from the older 2.0.2 to this version?

Yes


- what about addons like the dolby digital? I assume its safe to flash too?

Yes


- current build.prop ids the device as Nexus HDX and tgere are a lot of apps on play store that are not compatible with the device, but they work just fine installed from another market (say 1mobile). Can we do something about it?

No matter how I modify the build.prop, google play store ends up not playing nice. So no not at the moment. Market helper used to work for this problem but seems to but patched now on googles servers.

Cheerz!

See my responses above. I'll add some information to the FAQ when possible.

OK, I updated and flashed all gapps and addons. Everything works!

Then I tried installing Xposed Framework, and on reboot the result was black screen after rom bootup (right after android animation). Waited like 2-3 minutes, but nothing. Then had to force reboot it via power button. After reboot everything works again with Xposed installed. No idea what happened. Any guidelines on where I can check logs probably.

havent tried any module yet, but it would be nice if we keep a list of compatible and safe modules.

Question: can any of the xposed modules trip eFuse or break stock kernel (as rom is running on top of it) or safetrap makes it safe so any changes to system would be just to the slot rom?

Use this verison of Xposed found here.

Try Gravitybox (JB).

I don't know if any of the modules can trigger the efuse. You are correct, in theory Safestrap makes it so that any changes should only occur in that slot.

I have the problem, that there is no Play Store and I can't install downloaded applications. I downloaded applications through the browser and when I try to execute them I get the error "can't open file". So I can literally install no app. I tried to install ES File Explorer and gapps pico.

Anyone else who had this problem or knows how to solve it or has some ideas?
