Does the fingerprint work
The fingerprint reader works fine, yes.
After using it for a week as my daily driver I just wanted to give a shoutout to Gandalf and the entire OmniROM team for this great release. No complaints, no questions, just a great big thank you to everyone involved.
Please link me that acknowledgement? I didn't say that I wasn't working on OTA updates being fixed, it just isn't my priority right now as Ether is more of a third device and a fun device to play with :)
The Google+ post did not say that OTA up...
The solution was easy, though it took a while to find it. Long pressing vol down + power for several seconds took me to fastboot, and I was able to continue from there.
