Introduction
Hello! It's time for some fresh blood to get a chance to have some fun. Continue reading if you care about my semi-personal details. If not, then skip down below. I'm r3pwn, a 16 year-old developer and I enjoy messing around with technology in my free time (That's about as personal as it's going to get).
If you have any questions related to this rom, don't hesitate to ask either in this thread or via PM.

Known Issues
- Turning WiFi off causes a reboot
- Activating Airplane Mode causes a reboot
- It seems that cellular data is not working
- Camera is not working
- When WiFi is on, the phone randomly reboots (seems to be a Cricket thing)

Well, what DOES work, then?
- FM Radio
- WiFi (please note the issues listed above)
- Bluetooth
- Calling/Texting

Screenshots
I attached a handful of screenshots, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

Older/Previous Releases

Please note that the file above does not include Google apps, such as Gmail, YouTube, or the Google Play Store. You will have to install those manually, just make sure they are compatible with Android 5.1.


Sweet! How do I install it?
Well, that depends on one thing. Are you S-OFF or S-ON?
If you don't know what this means, then you're S-ON.

If you're S-ON
1. Download the ROM zip to your computer.
2. Extract the "boot.img" from the zip file.
3. Put the zip file on your device and flash it in TWRP.
4. Reboot the device to fastboot mode and, on your computer, flash the boot image you extracted to your device by issuing the command "fastboot flash boot boot.img"
5. Reboot normally

If you're S-OFF
1. Place the zip on your device and flash in TWRP
2. Reboot normally

Gapps package

No problem. :)
I added another disclaimer to the OP, basically saying that it's not quite daily-driver material yet, just in case anyone decided to skip over the issues list.
is the Lollipop Base Gapps package 5.1.1: gapps-511-base-20150807-1-signed.zip the right one to use with CyanogenMod 12.1 for the HTC Desire 510 ??

Please make sure that the MD5 of the zip you have is the same as the MD5 that I have posted in the OP. What is the error exactly?

Appreciate your work man. you're a 16 yr. old badass in my book.
Prepare yourself though for lots of headaches from the many many users who just wont take the time to read your instructions. Never seen anything like it during my time here on XDA.
What you have done so far is remarkable (you too Mr. Mike) I can wait for stabilization if it comes, if not no biggie. You'll never hear a complaint from me bro.
You need anything, just ask. I'm available to those who are serious like yourself (you too Mr. Mike :D)
Anyways, thanks buddy. For everything.

I'll talk more to my Cricket tester and see if he has the same issue.
EDIT: I updated the OP and added this.

Thanks! This is actually further than I initially envisioned myself making it. It's fun to do this type of stuff actually. I bought my 510 off-contract and never activated it, with the intent of just doing this stuff to it.

Love the progress. This rom is awesome. I have two HTC Desire 510's. After reading the "Not Working Section" I realized that data doesn't work on virgin mobile just yet. So, I will re-install this rom on my non activated one and follow your progress until calls, messaging and camera works. Then, I will install it on my activated one. But, thumbs up my friend. You beat MIUI to the punch in getting a modern rom started for this device. They still work on dinosaur HTC device roms. LOL!!

I must have done something wrong when installing. LOL!! I'm not an expert at flashing. So I don't doubt that I did something wrong. Ok, i'm gonna go back and retrace my steps on the flash and make sure I didn't miss any steps. Wait, I think I did. Is the boot image that needs to be extracted from the zip for those of us who are still s-on does that mean it needs to be completely out of the zip and then flashed in fastboot? If so, that is were I messed up at. And when whipping, do we factory whip or advance whip? Just wanna make sure. If I can at least get calls and text working, I'll be fine.

You can leave the zip as it is, you just have to make sure that you flash the boot image in fastboot. When I wipe, I usually pick "Advanced Wioe" and wipe system, data, cache, dalvik-cache and sometimes even internal storage.

will this work with boost mobile ?? i 1. Download the ROM zip to your computer.
2. Extract the "boot.img" from the zip file.
3. Put the zip file on your device and flash it in TWRP.
4. Reboot the device to fastboot mode and, on your computer, flash the boot image you extracted to your device by issuing the command "fastboot flash boot boot.img"
5. Reboot normally that all went great ! but cant - Call , Text ,

It should work, but based on what other people are saying, I guess not. I'll update the OP

Hey, you are doing fine. No complaints here. I know from experience that it takes time to get these roms fully running. Plus, I'd rather you be in good spirit while working on this masterpiece. :D:fingers-crossed::victory:
