This rom aims at one goal, that goal is stability, with stability comes reliability, less need to update and minimal non-system breaking bugs if present.
What I have done is slim lined the rom using various methods and sources to make a reliable system for the ELF 2 tablet I hope that you can enjoy this rom as many others have.
