Yeap, the screen keeps blinking all the time and aura is not usable! :lol:

What is the free rom (not ram) that you have with metalounay firmware?

Yeap! I have already tried it and definitely is the best rom so far for liquid mt!

Has anyone else tried Sygic Aura? I guess that there is just an incompatibility issue here!

aura will work if we disable hardware accelleration. if you want to try it with your responsibility,you must be rooted and then go with root explorer to /system/ open build.prop and in the line debug.sf.hw=1 change to 0 and make reboot.now aura works but device is slower.so when you finish with aura,enable again hw acceleration. i think that for now is the only solution for aura.i hope that someone will find a better solution

Hm... i am aware of that solution but i don't want to follow that. It's unfair to disable hardware acceleration of this device. Maybe we can wait for a better solution as you said!

iGO My Way, NDrive, even Sygic Mobile Maps works flawlessly on this device! So you are right... we are waiting for a patch or something!

Finally i contacted the aura technical team and after some tests we concluded that Aura is not compatible with Liquid Metal. They will look into it in order to find a solution for the next version.
