    I just updated this tablet from 4.4.4. to 5.1

    It was easy todo, all with fastboot.

    -Installed TWRP
    it asked to install SuperSU
    then after boot asked to update SuperSU UI

    This was easy, done and worked perfectly.


    So, next is a ROM.

    Is there a ROM that is being used, works, with 5.1?

    i dont want to downgrade to KitKat, its just a tablet, if it was like my phone, then id do it. but it being a tablet, id rather just keep running the stock 5.1, Rooted, until a custom rom comes out.

    thanks

    Been wondering the same thing for a long time. Seems there is not much support for the 2012 N7. Downloaded DU for it and even though it runs better then stock, it is still not much to brag about, still very laggy. Can't afford another tablet right now so I hope I can find a ROM that runs smooth as silk on my N7.

    That sucks...

    Im hesitant to footnote
    Download the 5.1.1... Ppl say its a bit faster... But not much, which means, sure it's faster when you clean flash it...format..etc, anything will be.

    Need a clean rom like I had for my Asus tf300
