The NEXUS ROM was developed because of the lag of clean, lite and fast AOSP ROMs. I don't like the big ROMs that are heavy modified like Flyme OS or MIUI. I like a lite, Vanilla styled ROM a lot more. So i modified the official firmware for my personal use. But then i thought, why i don't share this with the community. I'm maybe not the only one, who wants a lite, clean and fast Vanilla looking ROM. This Project was born. The latest version (2.3) was rebuilded from scratch. This is the best what i can do on the official base from elephone. So the "Features"are also the "Changelog":P

This is my Final Work on 5.1 Android base, and maybe also for the P8000. I think i will buy a OnePlus 2 in the near future…

      Not with my memory stick.

      Stick used before as OTG on other Phone, Have not use OTG on P8000 before so I don't know if would work anyway.

      OTG will never work on Elephone P8000 because of hardware issue -> USB connector is not connected to the battery.

    P8000 does not supply any voltage to usb so no OTG.

    Hello Dr. Root.

    It's a very nice rom but i found some minor bug.

    - In SMS/MMS application, when you send a sms message, this appears twice in conversation (Fortunately SMS in send once), it's a display bug :)

    - Photo made by photo application is poor quality and without sharpness with back camera. The Stock rom 03/12/2015 has good photo (Is it possible to use camera parameters of this stock rom) ?

    I am aware of the work done to develop this rom. These remarks serve to improve your work.

    I thank you.

    This is actually the best ROM for P8000 –very fast, no laggy, everything works well.
