Can you confirm that your built date is Mon 13 Jan 12.09Pm.... I was wondering whether this new built in the OP is the same as the one I am running currently......

OK mine is when I look on CPU spy.
Built in performance control wasn't showing it.

Minimum clock speed keeps resetting to 729 as well.

Best ROM by far glad to see the official show up here .. Been using the beta since the first build on Google+ and have not looked back. Everything I could ask for is baked into this ROM. Thanks for the hard work !

    Hey Everyone!

    Kernel Developer here:

    I'm announcing a new Official Liquid Nightly today for you. @liquid0624 has been really busy so I stepped up to fill his really large shoes (no seriously these guys shoes are hard to fill) while he works on some of his other projects. Personally I've even been dragging my feet a bit lately because it has been a pain to keep Liquid N5 as an AOSP still due to the CAF Audio commits that keep being added. The list of reverts is growing but I feel strongly about keeping this AOSP because there are more kernel options for you. (Although I hope you enjoy the kernel that comes with this ROM)

    Many have said my blood builds are faster than official. This may be because I use a different server. Regardless, I hope this new build will be to your liking! I built it all with the same optimizations as I do my blood builds.

    Probably the main thing to look for in this build is full F2FS compatibility. That has been officially merged to N5 so regardless of whether you are using EXT4 or F2FS it should flash and boot just fine.

    Note the changelog since the last build is even longer than this one. This is only the past week maybe but it's been a while since the last official nightly update.
    Contextual headers was removed because it was causing instability and conflicting with theme chooser. Its not a crucial feature anyways. Also I worked very hard on this ROM so don't forget to show me some love below if you are able to of course :) Glad everyone likes the new build :)
