Features
  • AOSP based (latest security fixes from August 2016 applied)
  • Optimized for Grouper as a "low memory device" for smoothest user experience
  • Kernel updated to support uid_cputime
  • KSM enabled
  • ZRAM disabled (my be enabled using e.g. TricksterMod)

Installation Instructions
  1. Update Recovery to TWRP 3.0.2
  2. Boot into Recovery
  3. Factory Reset (only needed if you are not already on Android 6 AOSP on Grouper)
  4. Install OTA-Package (Build 20160908) (md5: cd4d42e6fd726232c6aaab9652d1d016)
  5. Install Gapps for 6.0 (I used Benzo-Gapps)
  6. Install SuperUser v2.7x (systemless) (Optional)
  7. Wipe dalvik (Optional, but sometimes prevents some issues)
  8. Reboot

As an alternative to flashing the OTA-Package, you can also flash the boot-.img and system-.img using fastboot.

Btw.: I suggest to disable journaling on ext4 partitions (you might want to have a look at this thread and running fstrim regularly

flash and use on your own risk!

CREDITS,
