    I am using it too; very good; booting and KODI/SPMC seem (qualitatively not quantitatively) faster; AnTuTu 6 Benchmark slightly over 33000 (iPad Pro 9.7 scores 170500).

    @traidory, @Essam- Yes it is. I really like how light it is, just the essential apps included. Also, how great is it to finally have TWRP. Cheers

    I am an Apple user; AirPlay with AirPin Pro, both audio and video work also perfectly. In fact, nothing to complain until now.

    Hello, can I use USB stick for installation?
    Is the follow steps are the same?
    • Download the recovery image and the rom zip, rename the recovery image to recovery.img and place it on the root of your FAT32 formated ExternalSD card along side with the rom zip.
    • Completely turn off your device, okace the ExtenalSD on the box and power it on while pressing the reset button. TWRP screen should appear. You need a mouse to navigate in TWRP.
    • Click on install, and select the rom zip file. Confirm and flash.

    @dodger- I was not able to use my USB to install. But your instructions are correct. Just be sure to use your ExternalSD card. Also, if you run into any issues just go to the link in the OP for help. Good Luck

    That worked thank you. I'm all installed but experiencing DF-DLA-15 error in Google play, anyone else have this issue with this ROM?

    I cleared cache
    Updated payment details
    Unmounted SD Card

    No resolution yet. If I can't fix it I'll install another ROM.

    Hi guys. Pretty much a newbie here. I've tried to flash TWRP so that I can flash abdul's rom.
    Downloaded USB Burning Tool but all recovery.img that I've downloaded so far, be it from the forum or from freaktab, all were showing parse burning image fail.
    Right now I believe I've somehow corrupted my recovery by flashing wrong root (X8-H instead of X8-H Plus).
    Do guide me to flash TWRP recovery and abdul's rom :(
    Your help are much appreciated :)
