OK may be we can sum up the bugs.

1. AGPS broken - GPS with WIFI and Mobile data.
2. Video recording broken - camera cannot connect error, photo OK.
3. Status Bar only show 3G instead of HSPA+.
4. Offline charging doesn't work - cannot charge the phone when it is off.

Thanks :)

New build up:
1: should be fixed
2: video recording works now, apart with some misc camera related fixes, it still has green lines tho
3: that's how AOSP is, I'll change it to behave like that in the future
4: fixed - spent two full days with it, but it worth it, no more workarounds should be needed
Bonus: WiFi Display fixed
Swipe in AOSP keyboard fixed
init.d support
built-in busybox (commands)

Since I was busy with the above, I didn't have time to add new features :(
Report back if the fixes work :)

Hi,
I'm experiencing a strange audio issue. After receiving a call the phone just rang for a second then all the audio got destroyed even after a reboot. Now all the included ringtones are duplicated in the ringtone selector and I can't play a single sound. Any suggestion?

I tried to wipe cache/dalvik and reflash main zip + gapps. Nothing changed, audio is still broken.

Thanks for the new build, @Ziyan!

I just want to make this post as a reminder on how to properly dirty-flash this new ROM build over the previous build without any errors.

First, flash the new build, then Gapps, then the Superuser zip and finally the custom kernel (if applicable).

Otherwise, if you flash the ROM without Gapps, it messes up the play store and you get these weird FC errors for Google Play Services and/or the Google Play Store, which made me had to wipe and clean flash (time-consuming on a Lollipop ROM).

Just speaking from experience.

Thx @Ziyan :) Does that mean, that we get also the CM 12.1 updated today ? :angel:

I've been having the same problem since a couple of builds before. Even after a clean flash, the phone won't connect automatically to any saved wifi network. I need to pull the notification drawer and, once I press "wifi", it shows them as saved, and shows 'connected' (even if it isn't actually connected). Then, and ONLY THEN, does the connection occur.
Any idea why this is happening?

Thanks a lot! AGPS indeed works now. :)

AOSP keyboard swipe actually makes the keyboard crash every time. I already deleted the keyboard app data to start over but the problem remains. Word prediction for languages other than English does seem to work now.

Did a dirty flash/wipe cache and have some issues:

1. After first boot up Google Play Store disappear, start Gmail said I need Google Play services but because I don't have Play Store I cannot download it.
2. Flashed gapps-L again, startup Google Play it asked me to setup account again.
3. Setup gmail account but when go to settings, account suddenly the "Google" type disappear.
4. After reboot a few times the "Google" account came back and seems now working OK.

Regarding the new ROM just to confirm what is working now.
1. AGPS fixed.
2. Offline charging fixed.
3. Video recording OK now but still have the green line.

Thanks again.

Thank you for the ROM.
Can you tell me how to delete the Google Search bar on my homescreen ?

I think you cannot because that is part of the Google Apps. Or may be you can flash the gapps minimal which may not have Google Apps in it.

I think I may have saw this but I think as soon as I pull down the notification drawer it will connect by itself.

And merged. ;)

Sorry. Wrong thread. CM merged it.

When we will merge it? Will 5.1.1 more usable with 1GB ram like Galaxy Nexus? Because I found that cm12.1 beta too slow to use.

    ZMoD is an AOSP-based Android 5.1 ROM focused to bring the most popular features to a clean, AOSP-based ROM.

    A bit of history: when 5.1 released, I was impressed by the memory management fixes it brought us - it's a lot better than 5.0 was. Since I use my phone heavily, mostly for texting with multiple apps, it was clear that I couldn't go back to 5.0 anymore - however, there were no feature-filled 5.1 ROMs yet, so an idea popped into my mind: why not create one? This is how the first version of ZMoD born.

    Features
    - RRO theming support
    - screenshots: quick delete action
    - configurable wakeup on charger connect
    - configurable volume button wake
    - advanced reboot
    - show application's package name in the "App info" screen
    - statusbar clock and date customizations
    - option to hide USB debugging icon
    - clock and time clickable in statusbar
    - battery icon customizations
    - alarm clock: increasing volume option
    - alarm clock: flip and shake actions
    - materialized gallery, calendar, browser and sms (not fully done yet) app
    - material default wallpaper
    - swipe in AOSP keyboard


    Todo
    - battery and notification light customizations


    Instructions
    First time flashing ZMoD to your maguro (or coming from another ROM)?
    Unlock & install a recovery
    Wipe data & cache partitions
    Flash ZMoD.
    Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.​

    Updating from a previous build?
    Just install the latest ROM zip. If you had Google Apps installed, you need to re-flash it as well.​


    Downloads
    Latest build: see the downloads section.

    An update on how thing's going: I got RRO working (theme engine without any performance hit), and some other minor thing too (made long pressing recent switch to last app, more detailed dexopt screen, ...) so those will be included in the next build. I'll try to fix location service without GPS too...

    More importantly, I made some huge progress with the camera & domx HAL. I managed to update them to a newer, version, to the same version which Hashcode's omap4-next repo uses (that's a new project, aimed to unify most common OMAP4 stuff into one repo). Now, I'm adding tuna support to that repo, which isn't too easy, as I need to watch out not to break anything for other devices. After that's done, and camera still crashes after a while (it may got fixed with the updates, I didn't have time to test it), my primary goal will be to fix that too (and of course the green lines in videos).
    Migrating to that repo will ease future updates & fixes (as if someone fixes an omap-related bug, it will be fixed on all other omap devices too). As I have some free time now, I'll also take a look at charging mode (I know FML has a workaround for it, but I'd like to inspect it a bit more deeply).

    New build up. In-call microphone mute has been fixed, we switched to an open-source libsecril-client implementation (did that together with MWisBest, one less blob), and there are a number of camera changes.
    Most importantly: the focus mode was incorrectly set to photo mode while recording videos since Lollipop, which is the reason stride was incorrectly set, causing those green lines. Fixing the focus mode for video recording accomplishes two things: focusing while recording is much smoother, no annoying re-focusing happening, and most of the green lines are magically fixed (without any workaround) - there's a different issue going on though, causing a much smaller purple line sometimes. As that's not as annoying as the green lines was, I think it worth it for the focus mode. That will be fixed in the future.
    Another change is setting the default capture mode to ZSL mode, and increasing the ZSL buffers queue by one. This fixes Messenger, Snapchat, etc video recordings.

    About the APN issue with some exotic provides, I can't say much - I'm using the AOSP APNs package, the same one the Nexus 4, 5, 6 uses.

    New build up. Changes:
    - updated to Android 5.1.1 release 13 (fixing the stagefright exploits and some minor bugs)
    - support for WebView from Play store
    - Support package signature faking used by µg GmsCore
    - Updated UI sounds, hopefully fixing the remaining speaker pops while using touch sounds

    I didn't add the lowram flags to this build, mainly because I think they aren't needed for AOSP - however, I'll upload a new build with some of the lighter low-ram optimizations added in the near future, so we can see if they'd help.
    I also didn't add the H+ signal indicators to this build - this is mainly because I didn't find a commit suitable for 5.1.1 (the one for CM seems to depend on some CAF commits).
