FAQ

Flashing Instructions -

First Time flashing Slim6


1. Make sure you have latest TWRP installed.
2. Make a nandroid of your current ROM.
3. Wipe everything except for internal storage and external SD card if you using one. Clean Flash is mandatory.
4. Flash ROM + Gapps. I use Open GAPPS Pico. Adam uses Open GAPPS Micro on his V400. You can use GAPPS of your choice, but it is advised to stick to recommended GAPPS.
5. Reboot.
6. Enjoy the awesomeness.

Updating Slim6 build

1. Dirty flash ROM and GAPPS.
2. Reboot.

If you want, you can wipe Cache, Dalvik/ ART Cache and System before flashing ROM and GAPPS. Do not forget to flash GAPPS.

Root

The ROM has root built-in. You can enable it under Developer Options.

WARNING - DO NOT FLASH SUPERSU. THE TAB WON'T BOOT.

Strange. I do not use SD Card, so I cannot confirm. May be @Adam Myczkowski can give us some logic behind this?

From the mountpoints in device tree it should support any type. Can you check if it works on CM13 or not? If it doesn't work on CM13 fefifofum did not add support for exFAT yet, alternatively you can reformat your sd card to FAT32, Im 100% sure theres a tool that allows you to format storages bigger than 32GB into FAT32 which should be supported by any rom. I've got 16 and 32GB cards for my G4 and G Pad 7.0 formated to FAT32 and never had any issues.

I just tested with 32GB SD Card formatted to FAT32, and it works well in TWRP and ROM.
