Unfortunately for us ME180A owners, nobody is cooking a useable rom for it. Someone did manage to find a way to root it so you can uninstall certain apps but that's about it. Having done so, I had been able to make it go just a tad bit faster but now it seems like I was back to unbearable lag and crash.

Since I put this KatKiss on the Prime, it feels like a brand new tablet again. I just had one weird problem tonight but nothing serious I guess. Just wish the batter drain was not as big. Seems a bit too much compared to 4.4 that I had installed before.

That's the beauty of Xda. You know people will keep old hardware alive (including my good old HTC Incredible S) so I'm sure there will be a #23 version or more for Prime.

I finally got so fed up with my tablet that I disabled everything labelled ASUS or Google that I don't use. Couldn't uninstall most of it but disabling an app uninstalls any updates and keeps it from starting. There were well over a dozen, maybe 2 dozen, preinstalled apps that I never use. Miraculously, the tablet is now about twice as fast and stopped freezing up continuously. I hate manufacturers that install bloatware on their products.

That's why I like the lite version rom of KatKiss. It is bare minimum as far as apps go. I added a few but right now, I have exactly 21 apps on the Prime. Really love my Prime again.

ASUS is a good company but when it comes to support for any of their products, they don't seem to care much. Maybe it's because their products are so damn reliable (most of the time.)

I spoke a little too soon about the lockups. It's still happening but much less frequently. I'd guess that some background process is doing something at a high priority that it should be doing at a low priority or when the CPU is idle. Don't know enough about Android internals to track it down.

Well version number 23 is up. I flashed the Prime and it still has the speed. Battery is supposed to be better but so far, I haven't seen any improvement. Still enjoy the speed though!
