*with R13 certain builds of google apps will cause a no boot situation if you wipe /data and install the rom and gapps together before booting android. Setup wizard craps out and never gives you a usable system. TO FIX: wipe data and cache, install rom, then boot to android BEFORE flashing gapps. from android reboot to recovery and install gapps and you'll be golden.

A few things I noticed:

- External micro SD detects in storage including size of card, freespace, etc but won't let me do anything beyond that. Titanium Backup won't detect the card at all. I can write files to it on Windows 7 but it won't let me read files from it.

- Same sound issue as on the 4.3 ROMs (up pitch audio). Tested with YouTube.

- Other stuff outside of camera and NFC seem to work just fine from testing.

Clean flash using the latest CWM for the Sero 7 Pro.

Downloading as we speak. I Don't use the camera or nfc much right now anyway so i'll give it a run. I admire all of the work that's been done with this. I wish I had the time to learn all the intricacies and inner workings to be able to contribute.

For some reason when I go to install, I get stuck in a boot loop. I'll mess with it when I get home and see. Trying to do this while at work.

I was only able to test for 5 min this morning but here's what I noticed:

1. HDMI is broken as it was in jellytime, all output is forced portrait.

2. When using the tablet in landscape the text of the icons on the home screen are cut off. Probably an alignment issue.

The android keyboard crashes if you try to swype type....

Can someone else confirm or deny the same problem.

I cleared the data/cache for android keyboard as well.

I installed pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4-20131118-signed


Thank You

Wow, this is so much better than the previous build. You deserve a beer.
I don't use NFC or camera that much. So this is almost ready as my daily driver. Could you make fixing the SD card issue your next target?
Thanks.

About to test drive this as my first rom for my brand new s7p. Will report back if I have any issues that haven't been mentioned yet. :cool:

ETA: Nvm, can't figure out how to mount the sdcard to throw those zips on it. My buddy I bought this from rooted it for me so it's running CWM 6something already. Can't mount sd from recovery, can't paste files when connected normally as I get some sort of error about the device being disconnected.

I am really liking the fact that I can run 4.4 on this tablet. One bug I have run into however is that I can't get .mp3 files to play from memory using Apollo or Google music player. When I try to play a song the system freezes.

I'm not complaining though! Just wanted to report a bug.
