I addressed this a couple of pages back, but I checked again with a reboot. And yup, I noticed that my lockscreen security settings (and pattern) had once again been reset. The pattern still displays, but anything will unlock it. I have to manually go back and set the pattern on every reboot for it to work correctly.

Hopefully we can find a solution for the next build.

I'm making a fix for it now(hopefully).

Found a bug. Is anyone else experiencing this? With a pattern set for my lock screen, after a reboot drawing any pattern will unlock it. PIN and Password work as they should, but I always use the pattern for convenience.

So heads up anyone with a pattern securing your lock screen: if you are on the latest build, your lock screen is not secure.

Simply wiping cache and dalvik fixed it for me.

Change pattern to PIN do a reboot and test again with pattern please and update; needless to say do try dalvik and cache clean

PSA - anyone using a pattern - if you select any of the larger than 3x3 dot options and also select the option to require password to start device, you will be flashing stock image soon, as I am currently. There's no increased dot count on the android pattern boot check nor the TWRP pattern check, only 3x3 so you'll be unable to access anything. I'd highly recommend removing either the increased dot count or the pattern requirement to boot the device as to avoid going through the trouble of flashing stock.

New build is up.​

Changes:
- Updated and built new toolchains.
- Kernel now built with SaberMod GCC 6.0
- Added some stuff to the kernel like intilliactive. (still working on lower clock speeds)
- Added fixes for the new pattern lock screen. (I tried it out and it seems to work for me)
- Some other little stuff.

Use the updater if it works for you or grab it from my server, Basketbuild or my other mirror.

Thank you for amazing ROM. i recently switched from your 5.1 build to 5.1.1 (04/22 nightly) and can't seem to find where can i enable recovery reboot, previously after i press restart, it would give me "soft reboot, recovery, etc."

Thanks in advance to you or anyone else who can point me into the right direction of the settings which i had enabled in the past.

hi.. i am loving your rom. thnks alot for all the work. i am having bug with the latest build. when i open the dialer, none of my speed dial pics are showing up. i know its there coz when i long press on the black space, pic appears.

It's in the same place it's always been...

The speed dial is a known issue, was not mentioned as fixed in the changelog, and has been reported on every page since the new 5.1.1 of this rom was released.

As to Chrome, delete the version you have and install the Team BlackOut version. It works.

I'm using 4x4 but not a password.

Guys,

First, I think the readdition of the Benzo Kernel Tweaker was a great move. It has pretty much all functionality of Synapse and much nicer UI.

But my point is regarding the best kernel to use. I believe it is the Vindicator kernel that came with the 4-14 build of Benzo. Its version "2.1", but its before Vindi 2.1 became official and was rebased (basically they started from scratch and lost functionality and battery life)

I think the new kernel being worked for Benzo by xanaxdroid in the newest build performs excellently and look forward to using it full time in the near future, but it is still missing some features as it matures.

I'm attaching the boot.IMG of the kernel I feel is the best released to date, from the 4-14 build, if anyone else would like to use it until the new Benzo kernel matures. The new Benzo Perf app works great with it.

Hope that helps someone out. Also, I'd highly highly recommended checking out the thread in the nexus 6 general section which shows which services are safe to disable for Google Play Services. I went from Google Play Services having 80+ alarms an hour to 4 an hour.

Agreed, 4-14 battery life was absolutely the best. With little or no use, battery would go down like 10% a day.

Google Play services has stopped errors CONSTANTLY on the new update after upgrading with the delta. Several times a minute.

I noticed it seems like Google Now Launcher was not included in this version? I actually prefer that to other launchers. I wonder if thats related at all. Trying to restore my backup of Google Now Launcher, but this latest update isn't going so well for me.

EDIT: Stopped a bunch of google play services. SEEMED to have stopped the issue. Dunno why so much trouble for me with this release but I'm trying to get it all sorted out. Need my launcher back haha.


Nope. Installed launcher from market place. Still getting "google play services has crashed" bs. Everything was running 100% fine before the latest delta update :/

To get Google Now launcher you need to flash a stock gapps package after flashing the rom. I use pa gapps stock and haven't had any issues. Try downloading instead of flashing within the rom. I wiped dalvik, cache, and system then flashed the rom and pa gapps stock.

    Go to the bug tracker after reading below.
    REPORT BUGS ONLY:
    * AFTER A CLEAN INSTALL
    * USING STOCK KERNEL
    * USING BENZO GAPPS
    * NO MODS AT ALL
    * LOGCAT OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!


    As it says above I don't offer/guarantee ANY support! BUT I will try.


    So it seems I'm forced to put this:
    A clean flash is:
    Wiping Cache, Dalvik Cache, System, Data but not Internal Data.

    Website: oceighty.co
    Pushbullet: Benzo Updates


    How to install
    1. Flash ROM
    2. Flash my gapps (recommended for now)
    3. The ROM includes the latest SuperSU so there's no need to flash that.

    Note: The first boot might take a few minutes (maybe 1 to 3) but it will boot.

    Goodbye​
    You know what guys. Please go use other ROM's. All you do is complain about EVERYTHING. I do this **** in my spare time for ME. Read the OP for Christs sake. I will no longer be posting the builds here and will be asking for the thread to be closed. You guys are the reason so many devs leave XDA and quit making public ROM's all together. You are ungrateful and just want everything. You ask for a feature to be added then complain when it's added because it breaks some mod that you use. It says in the OP to NOT REPORT PROBLEMS WHEN USING MODS OR DIRTY FLASHING. There are many great people around here, but dealing with the others is just not worth it. Thank you to the people who were respectful and tried to keep the thread on topic and troll free. I will be on Google+ for the people who care.

    Okay this might sound dumb but please bare with me.

    I do this for fun and don't accept donations. I've had someone give me a Google Play card, and I took it and also someone donated $5, but normally I don't accept donations. So with that said, I'm asking a favor. In the spirit of this (American) holiday weekend I'm asking you guys who enjoy this ROM to do something for me.

    • If you're out partying this weekend and you see someonewho has or is serving our military, please buy them a drink or pay for their Pepsi's if they don't drink.
    • If you're at Starbucks and you see someone who has or is serving our military, buy them a caramel macchiato.
    • If you're at a strip club and you see someone who has or is serving out military, buy them a lap dance.

    You get where I'm going with this. If you don't already do this normally like I do, do it this holiday weekend. Hell, even if you're from a different country do it for someone in your military. Again I know me, some dude on XDA, asking for this is dumb but I'm still doing it. And if you are a veteran, have a virtual high five from me.

    Thanks

    PSA​

    So I just wanted to say welcome back to everyone. This thread is going to change. No more arguing, cussing at people(for no reason heh) and reporting bugs over and over and over. I state that these are my personal builds I share because a lot of people asked me to. I also state that I offer/guarantee no support for this ROM. That said, I will try to help out with problems. I do this for me in my free time, but I also like most of the people around here and want their phone to work. I WILL use the "it works for me sorry" answer. Especially for people who provide no logcat or any information at all(logcat or GTFO :p ). And if your theme does not work, use a different theme or find somewhere where it works. With that said, I'll try to be more courteous to people because I acted wrong at times too.

    So anyway, read the OP, read this and RESPECT THE RULES OR MOVE ON. This will be in everybody's best interest and make this thread a better place. Thanks and let's try to keep XDA a good place to come to.
