    That's strange because I could use Liquismooth without flashing the firmware since TWRP, but it wasn't the case for BlissPop obviously.. . Any explanation ppl ? :D

    I installed that too, but haven't seen that much gain...but it does provide a peace of mind I'm not wasting RAM.

    That definitely excites me, BUT I have to have Xposed, my dependence for it greatly increased in the last three months, and so I may have to hold off until the new alpha build is completed (should be out somewhat soon :)) for 5.1.

    Hey guys, one question. If I come from 1-22 build and want to upgrade to the last one, should I need to flash the firmware update after flashing the ROM?? isn't the firmware update already into my phone?? I just want to confirm since I will be updating today.

    Thanks and regards.

    Does anyone else have the issue as to where turning on and connecting to a wireless network will disable your cellular reception and forces you to restart to get it back.

    Once the firmware update has been flashed, you no longer need to flash it for updates. The only catch would be if you ever need a newer firmware (there are two versions floating around), but this one has worked fine for every update. But if you've already flashed the firmware, you should not need to flash it again, but if you're unsure, flashing it again has no negative effect :)

    phone takes so much time to charge up
    in 1 hour it went from 3% to just 34%
    no apps running in background except whatsapp

    am i only person facing this problem?
    any solution or this is a bug in the rom?

    Are you using the original charger and cable?
    If not, that's your problem.

    Try draining the battery to 1% (the phone will auto-shut off at that point), and then try charging it with the phone off and time it. It will tell you if the OS/kernel is limiting your charge speed.

    Thanks Tyler! I always want to be extra careful when doing something to the phone. I will flash it again if nothing bad happens by doing so.

    Thanks again!

    I just tried it too and it says invalid attachment specified. It's an XDA link right? Or am I pressing the wrong buttons
