None I could find but you tell me ;)



Flash instructions

1. make sure you have a current TWRP installed (3.1.0.0)
---> feel free to ask how to flash it if you don't know how
2. Download current Beanstalk ROM package to your device:
Download Marshmallow
Download Nougat
3. Download my Gapps (recommended as they work the best and are clean):
Download Marshmallow
Download Nougat
--> I really don't recommend any other GApps package as I configured the package to work with our grouper perfectly, any other package would probably cause issues due to the small system partition
4. Reboot to recovery (Turn off your device, press Power & Vol- and choose Recovery)
5. Wipe system, data, dalvik/art cache and cache partitions (optionally use f2fs)
6. Install ROM, then GApps (don't install any additional system mod if u use GApps as there's no space for it)

Just rewrote GApps package. It includes swype keyboard support and face unlock now. I'll probably upload it tomorrow as it would take ?1h to upload this roughly 60MB file. I hope you'd like to see these features as well.

Furthermore I'm planning to add some features to the kernel. Just tell me if you'd like to see something like that, too :)

Here is a short review... So far very good, but the Gapps has some issues. I had to revart back open gapps pico pack to resolve the issue. I have been using Beanstalk with my phone from last couple of months so, it was like walking in park for me. Everything is there as well some unnecessary things like vibration module settings, but I guess that is due to the same tree that has been using with other beanstalk ROM. and by the way @krassermensch thanks for the bulid. :)

Thanks a lot for the first review ;) what exactly were the bugs you experienced using my GApps package? It'd be awesome if you could tell me so I could try to fix it :D

I got error that some apps are not compatible with Grouper, like G+.

Do these apps not start or does the PlayStore say that these apps are incompatible? Furthermore keep in mind that the Nexus 7's system partition is limited. That means that in case you install a gapps package which is too big it doesn't fit in your system partition. If it's the PlayStore issue that occurs to me as well the solution is quite simple. As the play store reads your build.prop for your device informations and as a tablet of this size with this pixel density running marshmallow isn't verified yet, the play store tells you some apps are incompatible. Solutions:
- download and install an incompatible app from websites like apkmirror
- use market helper https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwb2OJUvDO5razR0YzZFQVhISVU/view?pref=2&pli=1
- dirty: change build.prop entrys:
Open the file /system/build.prop using a text editor
change the entrys ro.product.model to Nexus 4 and ro.product.manufacturer to LGE

Good luck. I hope these apps will be compatible in the near future but that's something a developer can hardly fix. It's Google's task to make it work. Let's see...

Nah!! It said "this version of this application is not compatible with your device". pico gapps solved the issue, now everything is fine. :)

OK? Strange. I guess it's because my gapps package creates an own line in the build.prop and that's something the Play Store is confused about but I'm not sure. Although good to know that pico open gapps work. I'll work on my gapps package again before I upload it. Moreover I added some really usefull and powersaving features to the kernel as well as some governors that might be usefull. Furthermore OC options are included now, too. Hope everything will work stable. If everything works well you'll see these features in Beanstalk 6.08. Until then I'm gonna work on a totally new GApps package. I hope it's done before school time starts again as I'm too busy then. Let's see...

Hate to say it but your gapps package complained about space restrictions on mine saying it was unable to install. I had to download the pico gapps just to get at least something installed. This seems to be a recent phenomena with marshmallow or something as these issues with gapps were nearly nonexistent with kitkat and lollipop because I never got these messages.

Thanks a lot for reporting this bug. I think it happend as you flashed some more packages and finally your system partition wasn't big enough. I'd always recommend OpenGApps to AOSP ROMs but on CM based ROMs there's the cyanogenmod setup wizard which makes the aosp setup wizard flashed with open gapps unneccesary. As I want to keep everything as clean as possible I'll post a new GApps package as soon as I'll have tested it. Although thank you really much. I appreciate every report and until I'll have updated the GApps package I recommend the Pico and Nano Open GApps.

Update to Beanstalk 6.08

I updated Beanstalk to version 6.08
I updated the GApps some days ago (cleanest GApps for CM-ROMs, kept minimal)
I customized the ROM's stock kernel (voltage control, CPU OC...)

Have fun trying it out, looking forward to your reviews :D

Thanks for your work. The ROM work good with my Nexus 7 Tilapia ! (I have replaced "grouper" with
"tilapia"). I don't need G3.

Thanks for the hard work, been a while since I've modded anything, it used to be my phone all the time but I got an iPhone last year and havent modded anything since :)

but my wife's old Nexus was borked with that 5.1.1 update a while back and I just forgot about the tablet, got it all fixed up and running your rom now.....so far so good but I'm having issues saving things to the device from certain apps? Apps from the play store install fine but I tried getting some wallpaper from Zedge and it wont save any of the downloads. I've been out of the game for a while so its probably something stupid, like Google messing around with sdcard storage or something again....

Any ideas?

I don't know exactly what causes your issue but I think it's due to the Android 6.0 Permission System. There are requests by Apps asking for permission to write data to the storage for example. I recommend going to Settings->Apps->Zedge->Permissions-> here you need to grant the App all of the permissions that might be necessary to work properly.
I have to go to school now but I'm goona try to reproduce your issue when I'm back. Just tell me if the upper suggestion fixed your problem or if it's really a kind of deep bug of Beanstalk OS.

It's always great to hear such feedback, especially because it's my first ROM. Thanks a lot. Feedback, may it be positive or negative, motivates me proceeding my work. After all the inconvenience I had with my own computer which has some hardware issues I can't specify I had to switch to my mother's Intel Pentium computer. Everything's so slow on this device but it worked in the end although every build takes even a bit longer than the repo syncs (~8hours). My budget as a pupil makes it impossible to fix the issues on my computer so there will always be small delays on ROM updates. All in all builds work and I'm looking forward to make updates for this ROM for some time.

There's something else I'm interested in: What do you think about the new Kernel features? Do they work for you? :confused:
Waiting for your feedback :D

    Here it is, guys, the Nougat update. It took quite much time until I could make everything fit into the small system partition of grouper. Finally I got it so here it is.

    Beanstalk 6.19 update

    Ok guys, the build as well as the GApps are updated now. You can find the download in the first post of this thread. Keep in mind that I rebuilt everything. I recommend doing a clean flash although a dirty flash should work, too.

    What's new:
    - changed the default browser to Gello
    - added OTG support
    - added USB as an additional sound device
    - latest Cyanogenmod updates and fixes

    Looking forward to your reviews. Happy flashing ;)
