I would say that the script has not executed, as it should begin by setting the running property to "yes".

Here is another trick to speed up the device. I have installed Cm13 on grouper having data and cache in f2fs.

I was on an older version (ParrotMod_Grouper_Universal_2016-05-26_16.22.40) until yesterday. Before upgrading I ran the getprop command and got nothing in the term. The old method confirmed parrotmod was running. getprop worked fine after upgrading, so it seems a re-flash for the OP might be in order.

Oh I think I see, the running prop was only added in the last version, so it wouldn't have worked before you upgraded..

Just to be sure and not destroy my setup again: It is ok to install "ParrotMod_Grouper_Universal_2016-10-14_19.33.56" on the Nexus 7 3g Tilapia, right?
I think it would be great to rename the package or include something about this in the first post, the 3g Nexus is only mentioned once (because of tethering, in the feature list).

@parrotgeek1, would an apk for those of us (most of us) that are rooted be the way to go?


Edit: Also, the ZRAM is set up, with its swappiness values etc, but not initialised, so you need a kernel management app to do this (well I do anyway 😉).

So what's wrong with the carbonrom settings? I'm trying to get the rom usable, but it's sluggish at all.

Hi all,

in which of all ROMs published on XDA works Parrot MOD? I have CM13 but im thinking to move to other (6.0.1 or 7.) because that one doesnt have more development. In the other hand, what do u think that is best, in performance?

Thanks in advance

Tried this and it works!

http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...ingup-t3128195

Nexus 7 '12 with parrot-mod, 3.4 Kernel and Android Nougat 7.1, which is runnin' very smooth.
U'll find a link to latest builds with aosp 7.1 in the op.

Greetz, brockn

Is this rom working out of the box with ParrotMod or it needs some adjustments?
