Hi everyone,

I've successfully built OmniRom from source for my Nexus 5 using this guide:

The ROM builds fine and the is created in /out/target/product/hammerhead.

However, when I flash that zip file, my phone is stuck on the Google logo and it won't boot into the system.
Is there anything I am missing?
A Google search didn't reveal anything.

Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming you've already downloaded and extracted the proprietary blobs, yes?

Posted from whatever phone booted today

I knew I was missing something. Can you point me to the right direction how to do it?

edit:// Nevermind, found it and building as we speak! Thanks!

edit2:// The missing proprietary blobs were the issue indeed. My phone just booted into my first self-built ROM. Cheers!
For anyone having the same issue: Here's a good guide for getting and extracting the missing files.
