All of the sources can be publicly viewed through GitHub and you can stop by the public Gerrit to submit patches of any type.

SlimPop is the project name for SlimRoms based on Android 5.0 and offers the following original features:
New features coming soon, I'm still getting the base stable

Tips

1: Before installing rom goto /settings/apps/Downloaded/Trickster MOD and clear data

After installing rom and gapps.
2: /settings/dev-settings/animation scales x3 change to .25x.
3: /google-settings/search & now/voice/ok Google detection/ turn off OK Google.

don't be impatient it can take upto 15 minutes on bootanimation, just sit tight.

Layers

Layers is a way of installing overlays to your system.
It is in very early development (but already I like it).
It can change resources, ie. strings, colours and values.
It can also be used to fix some rom bugs etc.

We will just be using it as a theme engine for now.
Main Layers xda thread Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...s-rro-t3012172
A collection of Layers available Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...hemes-t3011075

Layers has its own app (unfortunatly it doesn't support legacy devices YET) so I modified my Sion app to be able to install them.
The BitSyko team who developed Layers are working on a new app which should be very smart.

Instructions:
**************
pick a Layers.zip file from the collections link above or the About screen of the Sion app and download it to your sdcard.
Next open Sion (either from /settings/interface/sion installer or from the Sion app in your app drawer.
click Button 3 "Layers Installer".
click Button 1 "Choose Your Layers.zip".
click your predownloaded Layers.zip file.
click Button 2 "Install Chosen Layer".
click Button 3 "Reboot Your Device".
Enjoy your new theme.

TIPS
*****
1/ you can install multiple Layer.zips befor rebooting.
2/ To delete one layer at a time
click Button 4 "Installed Layers"
click on the Layer you would like to delete.
check the checkbox and then click the bottom left Button "Delete Your Chosen Layer".
3/ You can delete all installed Layers by checking the checkbox then clicking the bottom right Button "Delete all Installed Layers".
4/ Use the Installed Layers Button to check what you have Installed.
5/ After deleting any Layers you will need to reboot for the deletions to take effect.
6/ you can istall any number of layers at once, but if you have 2 the same ie. 2 different frameworks.apk's then they will conflict with each other.
7/ Please read about layers in there xda thread (link can also be found within the About screen of my Sion app).

I suggest trying Brian Gills SynergyV2 Layer 1st.
Link: https://plus.google.com/+BrianGill55/posts/9Giqp72hCAG (V3 coming soon).
theres a little bug with synergyV2 layers in the hangouts.apk, just use sion to delete this layer before rebooting. (you can also delete the dialler.apk as we don't need that with the Kindle.

Development like this is why I consider the otterx to fit in the same family as my Nexus 5 and 10. It's crazy...a 3 year old tablet that is technologically inferior to my freaking WATCH, is receiving Lollipop. Outstanding work, truly incredible!

Can't wait to see how far we can take this device. Lollipop adds at least another year to the life of this device.
