v2.1 -
Mirror (use second)

7/19 Gapps -
You can pretty much use any ones that you like now, but I recommend the ones from

1. Make sure that you are on the JB Bootloader
2. If coming from any other ROM, do a factory reset (wipe /data and /cache) and wipe /system
3. Flash ROM
4. Flash Gapps
5. Reboot

Some boots can take a while, and it may seem to get stuck at the Google screen. Don't panic, just wait it out - it will boot eventually.

It is a known bug on toro devices when you raise the max volume, you often need to toggle the volume prior to it registering. As the default level is much quieter. Next build will only have 12 volume steps.

Had the gapps problem with latest nightly. But I downloaded the stable version instead, and now it's working :D I've been looking exactly after a rom like this!
Could you please elaborate?
Any problems, we would love to fix. My nightly (with TRIAGE) or sonic (boringUI).

Impressive ROM. Been testing for a while now and have a little bit of feedback from my own experience:

Everything is fast and smooth - it feels great. However, I feel that the animations have been sped up needlessly. All it creates is jittery, hyper-responsive behaviour that leaves apps trying to play catch-up. The scrolling and touch responsiveness is great - don't over do it because you really don't need to.

Theme chooser being included is a massive plus, and I'm really impressed by how it's been implemented properly into AOSP here. But on the downside, it's rendered almost obsolete by the ROM being themed already. Theme chooser themes expect a stock android base to build on so not everything is themed if certain aspects of the framework already fit the look that the author is going for. Because of this, often themes are left with odd colours like blue text which has been left over from the stock theme. This drives me nuts and can really ruin the look.

Again, this is just my opinion. At the end of the day, it's a great ROM and I recommend everybody checks it out. Just thought you'd like to hear some feedback. :)
Only my nightlies are themed. As I prefer to cook in a theme. One Day I'll get around to making a theme engine of TRIAGE,.. one day ... :)
