Here are prerooted stock images for use with my recovery. Note that these contain addon.d support, so any 3rd party things you install to /system need an addon.d script to be retained between flashes.

I STRONGLY recommend that you completely wipe if you had Kingroot installed. This can be accomplished in TWRP by going to Wipe and selecting Format Data. This will blow away everything on it, including whatever garbage Kingroot left behind.

And as always, make sure you DISABLE UPDATES.

It will erase EVERYTHING in /data. But once TWRP is installed and you are running wipe in it, you don't need that file anymore.

Awesome work.
As @Antieco asked above, I'd really like a debloated rom too to speed the stick up and I'd like to reinstall Firestarted 3.2.3 as it was perfect for my needs using 5.0.5 rom. Are both of the tasks possible?

Again thanks a lot to rbox fot his amazing work.

I highly doubt "debloating" would accomplish anything, but yes it's possible.

elsewhere (cant remember where) on the forum I found this link
https://github.com/esc0rtd3w/firesti...cripts/debloat.
I used it to disable some service but I've never pushed myself to launch the whole debloat script (be careful if anyone decides to try this because in the bloat-enable script it reenables the ota service too).
