INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS and DOWNLOADS
Installation for 5.1.X (Candy5 V2.X):
  • Download Candy5.zip
  • Download 5.1 Gapps (optional)
  • Place Candy5.zip on phone's memory or SD card
  • Boot into recovery. You need a newer version for lollipop. Tested with TWRP 2.8.7.0 recovery linked below.
  • Make a nandroid backup.
  • Make sure you're on one of these radios or newer for now: T989:UVMC6|T989D:TLMC4
  • Full wipe (Dalvik Cache, Cache, System, Factory Data Reset)
  • Flash Candy5.zip
  • Flash GApps if desired ***
  • Reboot, and let the ROM boot up and settle for 5-10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Issues? Post a logcat on Pastebin, link to it here, and provide as many details as possible, such as ROM version, GApps used, radio/modem, cell provider, or anything relevant to the problem or how to duplicate the issue.


TWRP Recovery:
TWRP 2.8.7.0 with F2FS support in IMG, TAR and ZIP formats. Thanks to @javelinanddart for compiling these.

5.1.X:
ROM:
candy5-release.v4.1-20151030-UNOFFICIAL-hercules.zip

Don't use the BasketBuild OTAs just yet. I'll un-hide the link when the OTA builds are good again:
Candy ROMs are now built weekly and can be found in the CandyRoms BasketBuild Hercules folder


GApps:
Use TK PIco GApps from AndroidFileHost | BasketBuild
(Main TK GApps thread on XDA)
(*** You may use a 5.1 GApps package of your choice, but be wary of large GApps packages. It's normally better on the Skyrocket to install a very small GApps package and get the rest of the Google Apps from the Play Store...)

Please give first boot several minutes to complete.
* If you use Hangouts Dialer and find you lose audio after using it, you can try flashing this audio patch. (Credit goes to @bryan2894.)

===============

Previous builds have been removed from here, but they're still on my AndroidFileHost.com account or CandyRoms' AndroidFileHost.com account.

I don't own the Herc, but I figured I'd share something new to flash on it here... you're welcome.

Candy5 Screenshots are not difficult to find. Feel free to flash the ROM and make some screen shots yourself to post here. It would be a great way to contribute something useful.

Your persistence and hard work to keep these ROMs going is something that shouldn't be taken for granted to say the least. You've kept going despite very little help here frankly. I haven't used anything but Sultan's work for the last several months but appreciate what you're doing nonetheless. Some better take note as devs for this phone can now be counted on one hand.

Thank you. It's definitely been a challenge getting Lollipop on these older devices without CM support.

It hasn't been like just sync up and build it, but it's close (now)...
