Wipe cache, dalvik and flash the update.zip or use built in OTA Updater

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications,
and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device,
I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.

The OS looks great!! I am downloading the ROM!
Although i did not see any indication on which variant of the Note 5 this ROM supports.
Any ideas before I flash?

Chinese app persist?

yes, but you can download an app in the play store called "System App Remover" and remove them. Most chinese apps have a english user interface. And in this rom 90% is english.

Nice!! Gonna give it a try.

Android 6.0 shouldnt be an issue, just try flashing it. Do a backup before and give feedback here please :)

I am waiting for reviewers to update the "Bugs" page.

I have installed this but my SIM is not working. It does not connect to the network. Any ideas?
Which Android OS version (5.1.1 or 6.0.1) you were running before installing this ROM? And about your SIM's problem, I am not sure but try to replace the customer.xml file in the /system/csc folder by the one from your csc version.

    For new user and also bugs report

    For new user who like to try this ROM out, follow these steps. Hopefully OP can change the steps taken to flash the ROM.

    Instruction
    For user coming from any ROM, as long as you have at least kitkat boot loader, you will be fine.
    1) Just flash over any ROM you are currently on now (DO NOT wipe SYSTEM. It will lead to Error: Symlink failed)
    2) Wiping cache is up to you
    3) Reboot (Will take super long)
    *DO NOT FACTORY RESET AFTER YOU FLASH IT IF NOT YOUR ROM WILL END UP IN CHINESE WITHOUT THE OPTION OF LETTING YOU CHOOSE YOUR LANGUAGE*

    Bugs Report
    After using it for extensive amount of time, I decided to switch back to Stock ROM instead because of the follow bugs that really annoyed the hell out of me.
    1) If you have two or more email added, GMail will constantly forced close. (The built-in Meizu Email suck though, 3 points to GMail)
    2) After each reboot, the screen go black out for at least 15-30 seconds before you can use it (back to lock screen)
    3) ConfigUpdater force closing, so does Google Play Service twice on each reboot or whenever you do something related to Google(other than opening Play Store)
    4) Not sure if this is a bug or not, if you try using original Samsung Setting to set lock screen to Fingerprint, SystemUI crash non-stop rendering the phone useless(other than going back to recovery to factory reset which will turn everything back to Chinese again)
    5) Whatsapp,Email,Whatever apps that require background service does not sync even if auto sync is on. You'll have to open up Whatsapp in order to receive the message which is really annoying. Same to Email.

    I think that was all for what I came across when using the ROM.

    Feedback
    I think the ROM's performance is really good. Deep sleep work perfectly, 100% when I go to sleep and woke up with 99% and I have sweet ass battery life even if I'm gaming from 100% down to 0%. If I remember correctly, I have around 4 hours of screen time playing game from 100% down to 0%. On usual Marshmallow, I only have around 2+ hours before the battery go dead.

    Q: There is a new update, whats new?
    A: Search it up on the flameos website or check out the latest pages on this thread.

    Q: Can I install this on Android 6 bootloader or is Android 5 needed.
    A: Android 6 bootloader is working fine with this rom
    1
    920C with official ROM MM 6.0.1
    Flash Flyme OS rom
    Flash GAPPS (stock version)
    Wipe Cache/dalvik
    Reboot

    But don't work -> bootloop since 1h...

    EDIT: Just Flash rom, not Gapps, wipe cache, dalvik and data (not internal storage !) and it's works.
    But there are a lot of problems ... No 4G (or 3G), I have not managed to add google services, GPS does not seem to work here (in France) and a lot of features in less compared to an official rom.
    Some crashes in parameters.

    The only positive: I like the design.
