    Don't blame you for not trying right away, but yeah, I've been impressed with its stability the last two weeks, only problems are that "LiquidStats" fails to launch (useless and obstruct settings box), and pick up to wake doesn't work, everything else is flawless (so no crashes or anything!) And battery life is great for anyone else wondering!

    Does this wipe your whole device and install a fresh copy of lollipop?

    By doing it the same as above, (not wiping "Internal Storage"), it kept all my images, Music, etc :) Didn't lose any files that you would store in the standard user partition :)) So no hassle to even transfer files back :)
    It deletes all the previous ROM and installs a clean, fresh Lollipop install.

    Nice! And yeah, it runs fantastic! I just wish I could find a method to achieve root! Have only found a lot of Nexus 6 stuff, not sure if that will work on this!

    The Dbrand comes with a screen protector that is the actual size of the screen, and the skin goes around the screen border of the screen :)
