Hm it's only around 8MBs. So tiny. Is there a way to go back to stock as well?

This is a preview ROM, so only the "changes" are in it. I'm finishing up a full ROM now which is closer to 300MB. Preview will give you the benefits without the added risk for the moment. Preview is running solid on mine and the lag that was there is gone.


I will have a return to stock as well.

I cannot get the ADB drivers installed. Does anybody have a link to drivers I could use?

This is just amazing! Can't wait until the same thing will happen with the Moto 360.

improved battery life

reduced lag between screens

improved overall performance

No offense, but that sounds a little too good to be true. Any details on how you're doing this? Usually it's better battery life at the cost of smoothness or better smoothness at the cost of battery life.
