Booted just fine with Fire-Ice kernel and 64bit ARM Gapps from lollipopolooza thread (took about 10 minutes to get to welcome screen so be patient).
It's snappy and solid. Only issues I could find are listed in post 3.

Edit: contacts, vibrate on touch, and ambient fixed in 1/9 build

Flash went fine with TWRP 2.8.3 recovery. However, upon booting I got System UI force closing maybe because I have encryption forced?
I flashed both stock and fauxkernel and gapps in other rom but no go. System UI fc'ing loop prevented me to enter my passcode to decrypt the /data partition.

I found a workaround for the white on white Contacts problem.
Download https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95832962473400203 and extract the Contacts.apk.
Rename existing system/priv-app/Contacts.apk to Contacts.bak and inject the one above, set perms to rw-r-r and reboot.

OP #2 recommends Fire-Ice kernel
That's what I used and things are up and running decrypted with no UI FC's.

Hey, love that some of the big time AOSP ROMs are making it to this device.

What is the battery life like on this ROM? At stock, I can get a good 4-5 hours of battery life with heavy use (web browsing, gaming, etc).

Also, weird off topic question, which model of the N9 is flounder, and which is volantis? I have the 32gb wi-fi only version, which is it?

Ok i know this is odd
flounder / volantis = wifi only
flounderlte? / volantisg = LTE

thanks. my big question is do I have a founder or a volantis? since they're both the wifi only model, does it matter? if I have a volantis and flash this flounder rom, will it cause me problems?

i have the 32gb wifi only version in black, and it was one of the first models released, if that helps.

So flounder is volantis
likewise

Battery - too early to tell. ROM just came out. But if it helps: I had about 95% yesterday when I flashed LS, had about 3 hours of SoT and casted to Chromecast for a few hours and still had 30% left this morning

Flounder/Volantis - short answer. They are the same thing. They are both names for the wifi only version. volantis is the google factory image name, flounder is the rom dev's name

Thanks for the find on the contacts.apk. It works great. I used the fire & ice kernel also; Except for other items shown in post 3, everything is working. Great job op and LS team.

I also had the same issue. I've gone back to stock, rerooted, and it still came back. I'm going to try swapping out all of the variables, kernel, gapps etc. and will report back.

    Info

    First of all i would like to state i do not own this device so i rely on testers.

    This build does boot with the included prebuilt kernel but i would recommend flashing USBHost's fire and ice kernel
