sadly no, my hard drive "broke" and I need to install all again, but now I will compile in linux mint, becouse my friend do not got errors when building

guys, why all of you can't build one awesome and very stable rom.. everything what we have is roms with too many bugs, every single rom have different bugs, guys, make a team, build one awesome rom.. not hundred of "not to daily use" roms, I know it's hard and at some point difficult, but building rom together is faster, better and very stable way... just think about it... P.A.C-Man Rom will be best choice... or Blisspop and Carbon... best wishes. can't wait for best stable rom.

Yes but initially, isn't easy.
Then, don't forget that just Asus has the job to provide you a stable Rom, for daily use with no bugs, most of us do all this on free time just for hobby.
If you want, contribute, learn and try to do it yourself.
Nobody was born knowing how to build an android, you can do it too. :)

I know it's not easy, and you guys do it in your free time, but I'm not talking about hating them, I really like resurection remix, and this build of cyanogen too but not every app working on it, I'm just giving an idea to all developers of zenfone 5/6 to make rom together and to solve problems quicker and better. That's it. If I offended you, I apologize. I don't even know how to build rom to boot up on asus.. so thank you guys for making builds.

You didn't offend me.
I just said that this isn't a job so nobody here has to work with others to make something together.
I even try to help the others but I think that both this and the timezones and the fact that everyone has a busy life makes what you wish hard to happen. That's why I suggested you to help too, but doing all together will be hard.

    I just discovered your screenshots very carefully.
    It looks like you using same device tree like KnoneNull. Moreover you used same CM sources KnoneNull.
    Plus blob files was taken from WW 3.23.40.60. (Like KnoneNull builds)
    So i think that it is a modificated build by KnoneNull.
    In addition i would like to say that other information (ex. date of rom building) can be edited in the buils.prop without any problems.
    I asked ur age because I feel ur comments slightly underage words. They are rather demoralizing than productive. I wanted to ask how you deducted that much of info but I really refrain doing teenage drama.
    BTW IF it was based on knones then network selection menu won't have worked bro.

    You need to stop being competitive and pointing fingers. Rather share what u know and learn what others know.
    SHARING IS CARING.

    P. S. I am not a developer of any kind, I just said that as a sociological conduct.
