If you're root then maybe you can use flashfire to flash a rom just like 5.1.2

Flashfire needs supersu
or Cmsu to work.

Try rootjunky's supertool after rooting to see if it can install it.

So you installed cm12.1 coming from fireos 5.3.1?
That's awesome!
You should create a tutorial so others can do that to.

Same procedure as if coming from FireOS 5.1.2; a new tutorial is not required.
