Try the MM base package here. Flash the ROM first, then go back to TWRP/Mounts and tick system to the opposite of whatever it's at. Then go back and flash GApps and SuperSU 2.52.
Just wanted to point out this worked fine & dandy! Sorry I wasn't able to test until this past weekend. Seems like the installer just doesn't have an un-mount system command at the end. No big deal if you know what do do about it, which I do now. :D

Now the only problems are rotate & sound, which obviously everyone has on every Marshmallow ROM so far for our 'old' grouper. Hope someone figures it out, because the OS is so much snappier than Lollipop was. :good:

It's worth downloading, I've been running it for a while with no loss of performance.

Well, I would say that 6.0 is slower for me than 5.1. For example XDA application, I am using right now is much slower. Plants vs. Zombies 2 cannot be started at all, hehe ). But I appreciate developer's efforts and looking forward on future improvements.
