On 2nd thought don't bother, I believe this is the 10th or so custom ROM that I have tried which seems utterly inferior to stock. I guess there just aren't any worth flashing to for the s5 in my opinion, or at least I am no longer willing to hunt for it anyway.
Some closing thoughts before I wipe this off my system:
1) Don't claim to be properly debloated when after properly deselecting sammy bloatware to not install it gets installed regardless.
2) Certainly don't add 7 to 10 of of your own custom bloatwares in the form of useless apps. (I lost count after around 7 of these)
3) If you expect a ROM to be useful, then at least make sure the wifi doesn't drop randomly at least once an hour.
4) You are definitely either a) a marketing genius, b) had a huge following before starting on this ROM, or c) this ROM was vastly superior to available stock FW back when you first started but then you were beaten by a real team of pros who designed the stuff in the first place. I wouldn't feel too bad about that last part, 1 man (and perhaps a few helpers) can only do so much.
Regardless of all the above shortcomings, the dev of Omega here is certainly a God among lemmings.
I am absolutely amazed at how you managed to get such high ratings, review count and # of followers on this steaming heap of wolf excrement. You definitely did some things "right" apparently to get such high numbers, but creating a ROM better than stock 5.1.1 (ACTUALLY debloated) was certainly not one of them.
That being said, I have 99% lost faith in XDA in general slowly over the last few weeks trying to find a custom ROM that is better than extreme debloated 5.1.1 stock on s5. Not only are the custom offerings lackluster and full of issues, but the community seems to be more or less dead for this device. Maybe it is just selfishness and the majority are too busy playing with the new things like s7. Either way, it doesn't seem like very many people at all want to have more discussion on it. So I too, am done.
Back to my personally debloated 5.1.1.... (which means pretty much anything that CAN be removed and the sytem is stable while google play still works, it is gone) The performance, stability and battery life simply can't be beat doing it this way. I could be wrong about that since I didn't try literally every custom ROM out there, but considering how many of the seemingly "major" players I did try out it was quite a waste of time. Cheers all.
