For what it's worth, I tried a dirty flash of this ROM over sikke1's debloated ROM. The system booted etc, but reported some UID-mismatches. Without any deep analysis, it seems to me that you should better create backups, instead of hoping that you can flash this ROM while keeping the data. (but maybe, I just did something wrong, it was just a quick and dirty test)

Regarding the partition question by @0czko You can modify the flash.xml to skip partitioning if you use MFT to flash, and leave the partitions at your desired sizes.

Many thanks to the creators of this ROM, for some reason, it runs a bit better than the one by sikke1 (which was excellent work as well).

Unfortunately the link to the ROM is dead now.

I am installed and tested this rom today. Unfortunately, the main problem is not disappeared: my Skype video is freezing after few seconds of using, as it does in mirek190 rom too. Any solutions?

I flashed the rom and the 2.05 bios. After that I flashed Mirek190 v7 light rom for Air II and I'm still not happy with battery life. I get between 3 and a half and 4 hours of youtube video streaming @ 30% brightness. Is that normal or is there an issue with my unit?

Thank you for the replay, I'll stick with this rom for now, although the lack of auto play in the android youtube app is quite annoying
