Installed hdx
Tried HDX-Nexus-Dolby-Digital-v1.2.zip won't boot after installing? Are you going to upload one for this version or is it user error?

Yes, I need to try and port Dolby Digital to KitKat, version 1.2 will not work with this ROM. The dolby port is low on my priority list as I want to finish the new version of Safestrap.

Hi ONYXis, yes adb seems to be working on the new version - "adb devices" responded.

I'll try it out right away.

Can you post you donations PayPal link to the first post?

EDIT: Installed it. Bugs will go into the bug report section, but theese things are working for me.

Bluetooth: Iø'm able to connect to my Jabra headsets with easypairing, and get audio. I can turn wifi/bt on and off. Touchscreen runs smoothly and PlayStore is working.

Thank you, ggow!! I am truly excited about this release following a fantastic experience with Nexus v2.0.5. CMxx is great but I prefer something closer to AOSP.

Installed v4.0.1 morning w/o incident. Boots clean and complete with the 'right' options enabled by default. A few quick observations:
- effortless flashing from twrp (I know this isn't rom related but attests to integrity of package)
- fast startup! Didn't think anything could be quicker than Nexus v2 (after exiting bootloader); v4 beats it by a small margin
- smooth, accurate screen response; easily navigated through various settings with no snags
- wifi and bt both enable/disable quickly and reliably. No issues connecting a BT device that required authentication
- observations are with a 'clean' install; might try dirty build later for those interested in a more seamless upgrade

Unfortunately, I am traveling through the weekend with limited 'play time' (d'oh!). Will provide additional feedback in bugs section as needed. Something tells me not much is going to land there.
