    Oops. The phone restarted after flashing the new ROM and then it said android is updating. After that it came to the lockscreen, and the messages "google play services has stopped" flashed couple of times and the phone restarted. Now I only see the blinking Liquidsmooth...what to i do?

    Do i have to flash the gapps files again?

    UPDATE:

    Ok, flashed the Gapps and everything is back to normal. Flashed the Camera file and now the CM camera is working great! Thanks a lot!! :) It would be great if they can incorporate the on/off toggle they had for Google search bar in CM11 :)

    For me, the flash didn't work with the (CM) camera in the OP.
    Downloaded Google Camera and that works fine.

    Downloading 24/12

    Look in the Original Post, there is a "Install CM Camera" section, and in there, you install an APK, reboot to recovery, and then flash one zip file, and them CM Camera works.

    Potential bug:

    I'm using the stock messaging app and will occasionally have a previously read thread show up as unread. It only happens when I receive a group message that includes the same person.

    For example: I was texting "person A" earlier today. The thread was completely read. I then received a group message from "person B" that includes "person A", "person C", and " person D". Even after reading this new thread, the previous thread with "person A" becomes unread and stays unread until I text "person A" again.

    probably because they did a couple nice kernel tweaks and probably turned off the aggressive cache collection that android does when scrolling causing lag when scrolling through lists.

    This is by far my favorite Lollipop ROM as it really feels like a finished product unlike most "custom" roms I've seen for the OnePlus One. Good job Team Liquid :D
    The dark theme in the settings menu is much appreciated.

    Yes, that all exactly what I think! While this ROM does have its small quirks, it is definitely my favorite due to it feeling far more finished, and being very snappy! Also, I didn't really like the dark theme at first, but the more I've used this ROM, the more it has stuck to me! I really like it now, not so bright! :)

    I am on a rooted OPO running stock CM11 latest ROM. Is there a way to install this ROM without losing the apps that I have already installed along with my data (pictures, music etc)? It's OK if the apps automatically get reinstalled. I should not have to go to play store and download each one.

    No file manager is included. Download one from the Play Store or download off the interwebs the CM File Manager.

    Following the video above, you will keep your pictures and music, that will work out. Following the video above, though, will uninstall all apps. However, if on your current CM11 ROM, you go to Settings>Backup & Reset and make sure everything is selected to backup, and then go back one page and go to your Google Account and sync everything, you should have your app list backed up, and so when you install this ROM, you can sign into your google account and choose "restore from "A0001" from "0 days ago"", and it will automatically download all your apps for you :)
