The wakelock blocker is interesting - on CM I had to uninstall Google+ because of fingerprint scanner wakelocks. Now if I could just disable this it would be perfect!

Is this ROM based on the official CM of the FreeXperia-guys? Because their ROM is so snappy and works so well!

Cool! Downloading it now, I will report back

One really minor nitpick: You could add the CM-version the ROM is based on in the OP, I'd appreciate this information.

But thank you very much for your work, mate! This tablet is so good, it begs for a variety of custom ROMs!

P.S: Why are you running stock?

OK, I have tried it out and can report back:

Installed PAC ROM and PA GApps (from 2014-08-18)

- Very snappy, very good performance (Antutu v5.0 43739, 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited 19278)
- Themes work
- App bar works
- Cool boot animation, cool lock screen see through
- Bright as hell, like official CM; Fortunately one can also fine-tune the automatic settings
- Like when first installing CM, I had to reset the tablet once with the reset-key. Hope this was the only time, too...
- Wakelock blocker is cool! I'm missing a possibilty to sort by apps and a search function, but otherwise it look fantastic! Cannot report whether it works, though.
- Cannot tell anything about battery runtime yet (I'll be abroad for a few days, so I can say something in probably a week or so)

But my first impression is very good! Keep up the good work!
