Hi. So, I realise that this ROM's development is over, but after following the guide and successfully flashing the ROM, it's taking enormous ammout of time to boot. I've been stuck on "Android is starting - starting apps." for like two hours. Is that normal? I quite doubt that it is.

BTW, I know that the download links are dead. I had this ROM stored on my computer for some time now.

Hello sir,
I asked permission before
If it's allowed, I'll ask for the file, because the link can't be downloaded anymore

    INSTALLATION
    - For switching to F2FS, see POST#3
    - If you're already using cm-12.1, just boot into recovery and flash the zip. Then wipe cache, dalvik-cache and reboot. Otherwise...
    - Extract boot.img from the zip and flash it via fastboot
    - Copy the zip to your SDCard
    - Boot into recovery
    - Wipe System, Data, Cache, Dalvik Cache
    - Flash the zip
    - Reboot your device
    - After first boot is completed, reboot into recovery again
    - Now flash other zips like Gapps, SU etc

    First boot takes some minutes. Wait patiently.

    F.A.Q​

    1) Why root access isn't working ?

    Ans: Goto Settings => Developer Options => Root Access and enable root.

    2)How to use Illumination Bar for notification ?

    Ans:
    i) Illumination bar is enabled by default, but you can change the settings from Settings -> Buttons -> Backlight.
    ii) "Illumination Bar Notification" app is needed for notification to work
    iii) You can change theme color from that app too.
    iv) In Settings -> Display & Lights -> Notification light, only enable Notification light. No other changes are necessary.

    3)How to switch between EXT4/F2FS ?

    Ans:
    Newer build has F2FS enabled for /data and /cache partition. So you need to format those partition to F2FS first.
    i) Make sure to backup everything, cause you'll be formatting your data partition.
    ii) Reboot to recovery and goto Wipe => Advanced Wipe. Then wipe system, data, cache, dalvik-cache.
    iii) Return to Wipe => Advanced Wipe again. Now select only data partition and click Repair or Change filesystem => Change Filesystem. Now select F2FS from the list and swipe to format data partition to F2FS.
    iv) Similarly, format cache partition to F2FS too.
    v) Now you're ready to flash the rom. Flash it normally and reboot.
    vi) Using steps iii & iv, you can easily go back to EXT4 partition. But wiping is needed.
    vii) All these steps are needed ONCE. After you formatted to F2FS, you don't need to do it again.
    vii) Remember, to flash rom successfully your /data and /cache partition have to be in F2FS format..
