Installed hdx

Tried HDX-Nexus-Dolby-Digital-v1.2.zip won't boot after installing? Are you going to upload one for this version or is it user error?

Yes, I need to try and port Dolby Digital to KitKat, version 1.2 will not work with this ROM. The dolby port is low on my priority list as I want to finish the new version of Safestrap.

Thank you, ggow!! I am truly excited about this release following a fantastic experience with Nexus v2.0.5. CMxx is great but I prefer something closer to AOSP.

Installed v4.0.1 morning w/o incident. Boots clean and complete with the 'right' options enabled by default. A few quick observations:
- effortless flashing from twrp (I know this isn't rom related but attests to integrity of package)
- fast startup! Didn't think anything could be quicker than Nexus v2 (after exiting bootloader); v4 beats it by a small margin
- smooth, accurate screen response; easily navigated through various settings with no snags
- wifi and bt both enable/disable quickly and reliably. No issues connecting a BT device that required authentication
- observations are with a 'clean' install; might try dirty build later for those interested in a more seamless upgrade

Unfortunately, I am traveling through the weekend with limited 'play time' (d'oh!). Will provide additional feedback in bugs section as needed. Something tells me not much is going to land there.

DOOOH! Sorry about that.. :/

Edit: I have been using the tablet for almost a day now. BT streaming is perfect, there *might* be some issues with AVRCP - but I have not confirmed that yet. DeepSleep is working perfect, it enters deepsleep as expected. Charging via USB depends on the load on the tablet - if load is too much it will not charge. AC doesn't have issues.

..next try to pair with ELM327 dongle and Holux M1200E GPS. :)

No worries and thanks for the early feedback, LTE along with youtube fix will be next after safestrap is done.

Seems GPS and compass are working, I get a valid fix and I get movement when turning the tablet (in GoogleMaps).

..But I just realised, there is no browser in the rom :)

headphone jack is not working sound is low other than that is good keep up the good work

Interesting, headphones working for me with no problem (apollo), also playing stops if I remove them, sound level is little bit lower, but for my quiet enviroment I am not complaining...
@ggow, excellent work as always, will be testing this for little longer, so far so good

    Update - Nexus ROM

    For version 4.0.2 I am aiming for:
    - Youtube, facebook and other video rendering to be fixed
    - Youtube working and video in general working correctly over Miracast connection
    - Try and reduce latency on Miracast
    - ro.build.characteristics=tablet
    - Safestrap compatibility (more details later)
    - Low audio volume on headphones fix

    4.0.2 will mark the release of the first stable version.

    For version 4.0.3, there will be only one goal:
    - Enable LTE

    I will aim to get version 4.0.2 out by the end of this week.

    Progress Update

    - Fire Nexus ROM will be the new name of HDX Nexus ROM
    - I will be porting to any and all Amazon Devices I can get my hands on
    - I have ported a new version based on Google's latest AOSP KitKat branch to the Fire Phone which I have released here
    - Also I have released a lollipop variant of the same ROM for the Amazon Fire Tablet 7" 2015
    - There will be a Marshmallow version coming for Thor and Apollo later
    - Started looking good now and much more maintainable going forward.
    - Next I will start merging changes required for the Thor and Apollo HDX devices
