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.

exactly, nowadays it is impossible

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.

We only have two roms for zenfone 5 that are not good for daily use ... The others work well

we are very eager to use the latest version

Please expectancy when it will be available.

Att TeamZen.

I believe my laptop should arrive next week, so I'll spend a few days to install and configure my Arch Linux and then already start working on the rom again, that is if it does not act more unforeseen believe that at the end of this month / beginning of next I can already post

The problem came shortly after installing the ROM or after you have installed another kernel or something?

shortly after, but after format everything working fine! Can you make some more apps to work on this rom please? I really want to use this rom... I tried combine files with recreated remix (It was deleted from this forum but I'm using it right now) and everything what I've done is bootloop so.. :') I really want to add all PacMan features (customizations etc.) but unfortunately I don't know how.. Is that even possible? sorry for bothering you guys, just my every single smartphone has pacrom :')

Hey,some method to make this rom compatible with Borets kernel ? I enjoyed your rom put the battery could last much longer with a kernel that has hotplug . (I tried SMAI kernel but I finished on a bootloop ;

    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 (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.

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