But if you are coming from another ROM, then first wipe factory, dalvik cache, system, data and cache of both system 1 & 2 and then flash the ROM and GApps for each system. Opengapps ARM 5.1 Pico are reported to be working fine with it.
Here are the things that are working – Sound, 3D graphics, Hardware accelerated video decoding, WiFi, Sensors like screen autorotation and Camera.
