What section is correct for posting about questions like this ? I was gonna post this question to "Development" section but then it said, this section is not correct for questions.

All questions go on q&a... Unless:

It's a question about themes and apps
It's a question about accessories

These go in the themes and apps section or the accessories section.

All other questions go in q&a.

The following places are not for questions
general
Development
Original development

This is what I am downloading: http://download.paranoidandroid.co/roms/hammerhead/

Well. It honestly doesn't matter if a ROM is rooted. You don't need root for a ROM. Period. All you need is recovery installed with an unlocked bootloader.


FYI its definitely rooted, but you need to read up on what root actually means.

You should probably listen to Pirateghost. He knows his stuff.

I currently have CWM 6.0.4.5 installed. I have no problem downloading OTA updates from PA. However, when I go to install, I get a script error message regarding having the latest ROM manager update, and using CWM or TWRP.

Question (1): Should I switch to TWRP to eliminate this error message and re-enable OTA updates for PA?

Question (2): Can we start a Q&A thread for PA so that questions like this can be put in one place?

1) It has been stated numerous times in various locations that the OTA 'WILL NOT' work with CWM. CWM uses closed source recovery script methods. You need either A) TWRP or B) a CWM-based recovery (PHiLz comes to mind)

2) There already are threads dedicated to the rom in each device section for per-device issues (impossible for most users to understand difference between an issue that is device-specific (sensors are crap on Nexus 4, for example))

Thanks for the reply! For those of us under the minimum number of posts, where can we post ROM-specific questions?

just start contributing to XDA to get your posts. Aside from that some of the devices actually have a dedicated Q&A thread. Don't know if the Nexus 5 has one, I haven't seen it.

You could just use this forum section to ask your questions. If you see an actual reproducible bug with the ROM, we ask that you use the bug tracker to report it. https://paranoidandroid.atlassian.net
