Thanks so much Thor, downloading, installing and will update this post when complete.

Installed with latest Gaaps, and some big issues - Keeps telling me SD Card is unplugged, keeps locking the tablet when changing settings, and titanium backup caused a full lockup.

Also, wiped double, installed again, and same stuff.

Other than that, seems fine. LOL.
