based on my experience, it's better to wait till autumn before upgrading to major version
Move to his cm13 ROM this cm12.1 was my daily driver for under a year but his cm13 is extremely stable I get better battery life on his cm13 I usually get about 4hours sot at 35%.....considering I get 4hours sot max on any ROM I try his cm13 ROM gets me past 4hours sot@Sultanxda Your cm 12.1 roms are amazing!!! After flashing this rom i have never shifted to any other rom (even if i did i come back).
There is a problem that I am facing. It is not cancelling the background noise when I talk to other people i.e. there is too much distortion and the other person cant hear my voice and can here the distortion very loudly. The noise cancelling is not working (The microphone seems to be the problem). I also tried re-formatting it several times. Please help me with the solution as I cant stand any other rom! Thank you.
They don't usually, but it would depend where you're downloading from. It is maybe a temporary issue with the server, or your internet connection.
This build probably does not make sense to be honest as Sultans CM13.0 builds is perfect in my opinion.
But as I was bored I spent a few hours to see if it was possible to cherry-pick + adapt his kernel and device changes from CM13.0 to CM12.1 so here is a "stable/cm-12.1-YOG7D" build with "September 1, 2016" Android security patch level.
It's a "userdebug" build so it has built-in root (which is different from the official Sultan builds). Upgrading from Sultans latest build should be possible but I did not test it.
The official Sultan patches https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andr...mmit/e75f59e7fd349dd1fa5d452086c795f693776d89 and https://github.com/sultanxda/android_frameworks_base/commit/0cbd4a88767d78640b7dd391674575f7d5e517e6 are not applied (as I personally don't see any advantages for applying them) therefore the "Lite" in the name.
I've flashed the 20160918 build and used it for a day without any issues but have returned to Sultan CM13.0 as I really see no reason to stay on CM12.1
New build (This is untested so please take a backup before flashing and report back if it works or not).
This contains Sultans latest 35 kernel commits so it should be as very similar to "cm-13.0-ZNH2K-20160921-STABLE-Sultan-bacon.zip" with regards to kernel and device tree.
In the attached files cm12sultan.txt is the build script that I used on Ubuntu 16.04 while the 2 x .patch files (used by the build script) are the commits that I had to adapt from CM13.0 to CM12.1 as they could not be applied directly.
