I am looking for a Custom ROM for the Odys Iron.
Thanks to the crew here, I found altogether 3 versions - stock rootet, CM11 and CM12.1.
Is it like that, that latest version behaves best in terms of speed and stability?
Or is hardware to weak and demanding (HiRes Display) for the newer firmware and better stay at stock or CM11?

Don't want to do action games, but mainly for browsing, newspaper / magazine reading, watching movies, youtube.

In another forum was mentioned, that CM12.1 build v1.1 - 20.09.2015 (Android 5.1.1) was quite good, but don't have sound (neither loudspeaker nor headphone). Is there a solution? I found there is a special thread here, but am confused as main topic seems to be other tablets?!?

Thanks for your comments.

PS:
Have a stock Archos97HD Titanium (RK 3066?) before (screen is crashed), and performance is extremly weak. Is it worth to try another firmware that changes things? Or is this due to just dual core and 1GB RAM? On the other hand, a NOOK HD+ with also HiRes Display and dual core TI- A9 was much more responsive, than that with RK3066.

Well, you cannot compare performance with todays devices. Having a 2017 low price mobile phone on one hand and the Iron on the other hand is like working in another dimension. Accepting this a RK3066 or RK3188 device is still good to show contents.

Understand, this is ok and accepted.

From todays point I'll give the CM11 a try.I would prefer 12.1. But:

At CM12.1 - the mentioned issue with sound -  is it a known bug or does these users do something wrong?

Seems to be more than one or 2 suffered from sound loss.

 Great! Thanks for this offer!

I get this tablet (hopefully) today. So it is probably recommended to make a backup first. I will follow

Following I try the CM12.1 and give feedback. Hope I can manage this today.
