I'm getting occasional notices that Google Play Services has stopped. When it happens, it tends to happen two or more times in rapid succession. I wonder if it's related to the Legacy Play Store.

Just wanted to post the same issue, N73G and Jr8 with the legacy play store.
To my best judgment, this was not happening on Jr7.
Checking out that Play Store issue. re: blurry text, i'll look into that also...
I've just posted a minor update to the kitchen
For the next release I am in the process of porting as many of the mods / tweaks as possible to the Xposed framework. This has a number of benefits - as well as allowing mods to be turned on and off more easily, it will allow future updates to be released far quicker. Watch this space!
- Updates to bundled apps where appropriate
- Minor changes - preperation for use of Xposed framework for modifications in next release
OK but you still didn't solve the mobile data tile problem... Any progress possible on that?
Thanks for checking in with us again!

For this MCR we've used the latest available shipping ROM, updated with all the latest versions of the installed apps, which we've run through our scripts to ensure that it is as optimised as possible both for install / download size and real life performance.
Our ROMs are de-odedex, giving you the ability to flash other mods over the top, tweak the system and generally get the system set up as you want it without worrying about odex issues. We also include the 'OdexMe' application, which lets you odex your system when you're ready, saving valuable space on your data partition.
All MCR ROMs are pre-rooted with SuperSU preinstalled. In addition, the kitchen allows you to choose between secure, insecure and secure with patched ADB boot images.
The quick settings in Android 4.2 are cool, but limited. MCR builds include a customised version of the excellent 'Quick Settings' mod by kevdlui, allowing you to customise your toggles by holding the Settings button down. The WiFi and Bluetooth buttons are also changed to toggles - long press to access the settings menus.
The enhanced power menu (the one that appears when you hold down the power button) has additional options to allow you to reboot and reboot to recovery.
Jelly Bean added a feature to disable apps on boot that aren't intended for your region (Wallet, Ears, Magazines etc.). I think we're smart enough to make that decision ourselves right? So that doesn't happen in a MCR.
Isn't it frustrating how Google removed the ability in the Play Store to see which apps you'd bought in a nice simple list? I thought so... so I created 'Legacy Play Store', which has this feature.
Google might be ditching the stock browser for Chrome and Adobe might have canned Flash, but we still need to use it sometimes... so it's included in a MCR.
We've patched Google Wallet to remove all region and root checks, so you can have a play!
Google removed all support for syncing contact information via the Facebook app, we put it back. It's basic support (an app like HaxSync is more fully featured) but hey, it works!
The init.d directory is processed on boot, allowing our (and your) startup script to be processed before the system starts up.
The Amazon and SlideMe stores can be preinstalled, if that's where you like to purchased your wares.
Tweetdeck was great. Twitter ruined it. It's fairly comprehensively broken on Android, but we've fixed it with TweakDeck.
Once you've flashed your ROM, if you've wiped you want to get your stuff back on as quickly as possible - the option to preinstall Titanium Backup is here to help!
Wear your MCR with pride with the MoDaCo boot logo. It can be disabled in the kitchen of course if you prefer the more subtle look.
We haven't listed everything here because a) there's too much and B) there's things we've forgotten.
A number of different UI options are included - the default option makes the legacy menu button available on both sides of the screen for easy reach and also keeps them active when invisible, handy if there's a pesky menu button at the top right that you can't quite get too! You can also bring back the good old search button. In stock Android the navigation bar always stays at the bottom - in the kitchen you can choose to have this move to the right. Finally, percentage battery meters are also included in stock style and round style.
If you use NFC tags to set profiles or similar, then the option to enable NFC on screen off might appeal to you. Be aware that we haven't benchmarked the impact this may have on battery life as yet though!
The stock launcher, with support for Landscape. So simple! If you're an Apex or Nova fan however, you can choose these to be baked right in to your ROM.
In their infinite wisdom Google removed the Camera icon from the Nexus 7 - we put it back!
You can disable the camera shutter sound - use responsibly!
Just got a notification of a ROM update - I'm assuming to 4.2.1. Will that be integrated into this ROM? I assume it's not safe to update from google directly with that updater - right?
