Please note that this version is made for and tested on the TF300T model.
This rom is an aosp based rom with my own additions on top of it.
The main motto of the rom being Kiss. Even though the Meerkat could give you a kiss, it stands for Keeps it Sweet and Simple too
Which means that the rom's main goal is efficiency, speed/responsiveness,
while not adding bloated features that will slow things down

You'll have to excuse the phone quality
it's mostly to show the responsiveness, launch times, switching between apps repeatedly, multi apps, video playing, floating windows and so on, it's not feature exhaustive.
Install KANG TWRP Recovery
- Backup everything !
- Boot into the recovery
The first time or everytime you have an issue when dirty flashing (Especially when changing android versions):
- do a full wipe , if you have issues make sure that you format /data (format is different than wipe)
Warning: formatting will remove what is stored in your internal storage, so store the rom /gapps/supersu zips onto an external storage (microSD, SD card..) or make sure you know how to push them back through adb.
- Change /data filesystem to f2fs
(wipe => advanced wipe, check /data then "Repair or change filesystem" => change file system => and choose F2FS)
Then everytime (even when "dirty flashing") do the following steps:
- Flash the rom
- Flash the SuperSU zip
- Flash gapps
- Wipe cache/dalvik
Note that current gapps setup wizard will crash as it is not fully compatible with android 7.1.2 (KatKiss >= 022)
unless you turn on wifi manually after the language selection in the initial setup.
(if you don't have a dock, use the extra wifi button in the navbar)

How to report
What to include in the report
Use at your own risk, I won't be responsible for any damages caused to your Transformer or to yourself.
In most cases if something breaks, flashing a rom on top should fix it.
