Default [Q] Compiled OmniRom not booting

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
Nexus 5, custom OmniROM builds (don't panic, it means I can brick my SGS4G without fear)
Samsung Galaxy S 4G -- Development version of OmniROM
Fromerly: Development version of Team Acid's CM9 source, Hefe Kernel of Darkness, KG4 modem.
Working on: Cleaning up the build tree for OmniROM and Samsung kernel sources

WiFi Performance, GB vs. ICS, and how to measure it yourself.

FreeBSD, Ubuntu, MacOS X, OpenWRT
Motorola Micro-TAC ("Micro" ) Nokia 2160, 8260, 6681, E70, N900, then had to move on

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.
