Information + Features
- Pure AOSP Experience
- Also ideal for customisation through Xposed

- EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: As of January 2019 this ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack. See <<< HERE >>> to unlock your devices.

- IMPORTANT: Do not update Magisk via the Magisk Manager App, your device will enter a bootloop if you do. Instead update Magisk via TWRP only. If you do this by accident then it is recoverable by just flashing the latest version of the ROM again (with gapps etc as required).

Rules
- Please search the thread before asking questions
- Please try to stay on topic, I know it's not always possible
- Please report bugs here
- Report only one issue per bug report
- When reporting bugs please post a logcat and/or dmesg containing pertinent information regarding the issue...
- Saying something isn't working without proper explanation will not attract any attention.

Prerequisites for Installation
- Unlocked Bootloader
- TWRP Installed

Love how this tablet is getting so much love :D friend gave me 2 of them to do some magic :D any screenshots possible to see what we have? I might flash it on second one later. I hope it's on 5.0.1 so I can use TWRP. Also will SuperSu 2.6.6 beta be ok?

- I have put some screenshots up on the OP. You need to click on Screenshots to view them.
- I used SuperSU 2.5.2 but I don't see why 2.6.6 wouldn't work.

Dang, so you have to maintain the fire phone Rom, the cm Rom and now this, among other things. You must have a lot of work to do by yourself. On a side note this works pretty well.

@ggow Do you have a device tree for this rom, that you wouldn't mind sharing. I've been working on an AOSP ROM for personal use, but can't seem to make it boot . ?

- You can build aosp with the cm-12.1 + minor mods
- The problems you are having are the large amount of changes required to the actual android rom stack to make it boot for MTK.
- I had to make changes to a large number of the modules/projects to enable it to work correctly

Thanks for the info. I was starting to believe that was the case from what I found online.
Do cm-mod based ROMs already include these changes?

- Certainly cm-12 contains most of what is required - I didn't have to make any large changes in order to boot

Excellent, I'm going to try one of the cm-12 based ROMs then.
Thanks so much for your help!

    Progress for Next version

    - I'm working on an update which should fix up the previous borked release.
    - This ROM relies on gapps been included to work correctly so will not be releasing without it
    - I've fixed a bug in one of the last security updates I back-ported. Google services using the latest gapps now seems stable.
    - I wanted to check over a few more things and do some testing before release.
    - Hopefully should be done within the next couple of days.
