Any rom will due. I'd advise sticking with the M-releases so you can get some stability and be able to do a monthly dirty flash. I've heard good things about infected's CM build.
Ok I'll risk this question (I thought that I knew the answer)....
I was on Stock 4.4.2. I had rooted the Pad and then ensured that the version of TWRP installed is 4.4.2-v500-TWRP_22.214.171.124-recovery.zip.
So I should be fine when installing Infected's build of the Slimkat ROM as it also is built on 4.4.2 and yet I can't see a thing when it first boots.
The screen is way too dim. Eventually when I work blind to get it to finish its set up the screen is still very dim. Booting back into recovery it is fine and bright. A reboot and it is really nice and bright for about ten seconds and then it will reduce a small amount but placing into standby and then back on again and it is perfect.
It will remain perfect until I need to reboot it and then it will dim slightly until I place it into standby and then back on again and then it is absolutely perfect.
So what am I missing with the version of TWRP I have installed over that of the stock 4.4.2 UK OTA ROM and using any custom ROM based on 4.4.2...?
