Announcement from zephiK: Have a question? Check out http://zephik.com/chroma-faq/ BEFORE YOU MAKE A POST.
Chroma is a lightweight AOSP ROM focused on battery, performance and stability.
The philosophy of Chroma is to stay relatively close to Google's stock Marshmallow with the additions of essential features that should have been included with stock Marshmallow as well as providing the most up-to-date security patches.

Features:

Layers support

Status Bar Customization:
Battery Style (Icon Portrait/Landscape, Circle, Text, Hide) and Battery Percentage
Clock & Date (Show/Hide, Color, Alignment, AM/PM, Show/Hide Date, Date Style, Date Format)
Brightness Control (long press status bar to change brightness)
Double-tap status bar to turn screen off
Show/hide notification count
Quick pull-down on left/right side to pull down tiles
Network traffic
Pressing on clock or date on status bar opens up Clock, Calendar
Status bar weather
Show/hide brightness slider

Navigation bar customization
Navigation bar height
Kill app back button
Double tap navigation bar to sleep
Clear all recents button (swipe down on recent apps and it'll display on the bottom right)

Lock screen customization
Lock screen wallpaper
Power menu customization (power off, reboot, screenshot, airplane mode)
Advanced Reboot (reboot/soft reboot/recovery/bootloader)

Volume rocker customization:
Wake device with volume keys when screen off
Long press volume up/down keys to skip track when screen off

Other:
A large number of optimizations, memory leak fixes, security patches
Long press recents to swap back to previous app
Prevent camera shutter sound
... and more (see changelog)


Special thanks to:
  • People who have tipped/donated to me to support ongoing development
  • Sykopompos for being a good friend
  • CyanogenMod as well as the open source community

Instructions
Pre-requisites: unlocked bootloader, latest TWRP recovery
1. Download ROM, Gapps and put it on the phone's internal storage.
2. Boot into TWRP recovery.
3. Coming from a different ROM? Perform a factory reset using TWRP and wipe /system in Advanced wipe. If you're upgrading from Chroma ROM, proceed to dirty flash (nandroid backup before flashing is a good idea)
4. Clean Installation: Flash ROM, GApps
....Dirty Flash: Flash ROM, no need to wipe
5. Reboot and enjoy.
