Click AP

Thanks for sharing this Development, sounds awesome could this boot on 910w8.? I'm on the 5.1.1 bootloader

Try it and report back :good:

NVM, tried it and yes it boots. Works perfectly!!
@rmarinella

What progress has been achieved with the theme store? I'm working on it now, I've gotten to the EULA screen and accepted. Then it crashes, I'm looking into it now. See where it leads me.

Indeed, it boots fine and in fact I did a dirty flash over the EMPORIA-OI4-3.0B custom rom (not recommended however) and it's all running flawlessly. Thanks for sharing this.
Edit, quick question though how to remove the T-mobile Wifi calling error "Er05 invalid sim" message as a result of this base on Canadian model?

    Testing version 3.3 with Systemless Root. This will be our next version. currently using it with BeastMode-N910T*-1.9-RAGE Test Kernel by @freeza. So far so good. Actually dirty flashed over 3.2. Systemless modifies the kernel at boot, so a forewarning, it will reboot during the process, this is normal. Boot process is very long the first time, as old style root is apparently removed, and cache and dalvik get rebuilt. Thanks @VeNuMuS for letting me test out the kernel, I know it isn't how you intended it to be, LOL. ;)
