Bugs:

None I could find but you tell me



Flash instructions

1. make sure you have a current TWRP installed (3.1.0.0)
---> feel free to ask how to flash it if you don't know how
2. Download current Beanstalk ROM package to your device:
Download Marshmallow
Download Nougat
3. Download my Gapps (recommended as they work the best and are clean):
Download Marshmallow
Download Nougat
--> I really don't recommend any other GApps package as I configured the package to work with our grouper perfectly, any other package would probably cause issues due to the small system partition
4. Reboot to recovery (Turn off your device, press Power & Vol- and choose Recovery)
5. Wipe system, data, dalvik/art cache and cache partitions (optionally use f2fs)
6. Install ROM, then GApps (don't install any additional system mod if u use GApps as there's no space for it)

Great to hear about people who are interested in my work. Hope you're lucky with all the features in the ROM. Looking forward to your report. Hopefully there'll be some more comments when I'm back from driving school

Happy flashing to all of you

Just rewrote GApps package. It includes swype keyboard support and face unlock now. I'll probably upload it tomorrow as it would take ?1h to upload this roughly 60MB file. I hope you'd like to see these features as well.

Furthermore I'm planning to add some features to the kernel. Just tell me if you'd like to see something like that, too

Here is a short review... So far very good, but the Gapps has some issues. I had to revart back open gapps pico pack to resolve the issue. I have been using Beanstalk with my phone from last couple of months so, it was like walking in park for me. Everything is there as well some unnecessary things like vibration module settings, but I guess that is due to the same tree that has been using with other beanstalk ROM. and by the way @krassermensch thanks for the bulid.

Thanks a lot for the first review what exactly were the bugs you experienced using my GApps package? It'd be awesome if you could tell me so I could try to fix it

I got error that some apps are not compatible with Grouper, like G+.

Do these apps not start or does the PlayStore say that these apps are incompatible? Furthermore keep in mind that the Nexus 7's system partition is limited. That means that in case you install a gapps package which is too big it doesn't fit in your system partition. If it's the PlayStore issue that occurs to me as well the solution is quite simple. As the play store reads your build.prop for your device informations and as a tablet of this size with this pixel density running marshmallow isn't verified yet, the play store tells you some apps are incompatible. Solutions:
- download and install an incompatible app from websites like apkmirror
- use market helper https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwb2OJUvDO5razR0YzZFQVhISVU/view?pref=2&pli=1
- dirty: change build.prop entrys:
Open the file /system/build.prop using a text editor
change the entrys ro.product.model to Nexus 4 and ro.product.manufacturer to LGE

Good luck. I hope these apps will be compatible in the near future but that's something a developer can hardly fix. It's Google's task to make it work. Let's see...

Nah!! It said "this version of this application is not compatible with your device". pico gapps solved the issue, now everything is fine.

OK? Strange. I guess it's because my gapps package creates an own line in the build.prop and that's something the Play Store is confused about but I'm not sure. Although good to know that pico open gapps work. I'll work on my gapps package again before I upload it. Moreover I added some really usefull and powersaving features to the kernel as well as some governors that might be usefull. Furthermore OC options are included now, too. Hope everything will work stable. If everything works well you'll see these features in Beanstalk 6.08. Until then I'm gonna work on a totally new GApps package. I hope it's done before school time starts again as I'm too busy then. Let's see...
