Looks like someone has too much time on his hands. The build box is working overtime! :laugh:

Thank you, time and time again, for all those hours spent bringing us high quality releases.

Looking forward to test it, hopefully this weekend...

Thank you @ggow. Rom works great!
But this Rom seems to be incompatible with T-Mobile Cellspot. Actually all 3 custom Roms gets into boot loop while connecting to Cellspot.

Another nice rom. To add the issues already noted, compass and pitch/roll don't work (when using "GPS Status") although gps does. Thanks again.

@ggow, is this based on kk? Id just like to know which xposed to install. Thanks
Nevermind. Its kk. Shouldve read op more closely
Hmmm.. it appears something went wrong. i did a factory reset, then flashed the zip (md5 check was fine). But its been hanging on "flashing file" for about 10 minutes. Im not sure what to do. Normally itll fail but never hangs. Theres no option to cancel....
update - it flashed ok. But that took about 20 times longer (at least) than any other zip Ive flashed on this. Booted fast though.

    Thanks ggow for making firephone great again. Any news on an update? Thanks.



    I am just asking, ggow, when will you update this fire nexus rom further?

    I haven't received my new laptop back yet. Then it needs to be configured and tested to see if the CPU throttling problem has been sorted out or not. If it can't be fixed then I'll have to choose another machine.
