Additional tweaks for the Apex Launcher you will need to perform for full Tablet UI:

In Drawer settings make Drawer background transparency 70%
In Drawer settings make Portrait Grid 8 x 4
In Drawer settings make Landscape Grid 4 x 8
In Behavior settings make Screen orientation (landscape)

Download Bubble level by Antoine Vianey it will allow you to calibrate your Sero 7 Accelerometer sensor

Additional tweaks for the system framework for faster performance:
Enable Developer options - Go to System > About tablet > tap 7 times on Build number
Enter into Developer options menu on left side and change Window, Transition and Animator scale to ".5"
You can also enable the ADB Debugging feature in Developer options.

Install Xposed Framework from the included APP and then enable all modules within the app module section, reboot.
Use Modaco and enable the following Under Google Nexus (all)
Enable advanced reboot and show users on lockscreen, reboot again.
Enjoy a nice Reboot Power Menu and multiuser functionality through the settings application!!

There is an Google Play app called Thumb Keyboard it is amazing and should be purchased if you want a great keyboard for this 7" Tablet just choose 7" Standard layout when you set it up for the first time.

Additional application cleanup:
I was made aware that there are still 3rd party applications installed even after you wipe your device. They are located in /thirdparty and can either be moved or deleted. In the next release I will have that folder wiped clean, for now you can use a file manager to do it yourself.
