Loved dirty unicorns but I always come back to beans. Love being able to double tab the nav bar to turn screen off. Love this ROM as usual beans. Making my ROM rounds by testing them, making backups to put on my comp, then returning to the daily. Beans is always my daily no matter the phone. Idk what you and your team do to these roms, but they are always stellar for me

But fastboot isn't the only way to flash the radio. I can see many repeatedly asking about this. You can also use Chainfire's FlashFire. I didn't have any luck updating the bootloader with it, but I used it to flash the radio and had no problem.

*Update*
With v0.29 of FlashFire, the bug that previously prevented bootloader flashing (though there was a workaround) has been fixed. Even though you can now update the bootloader without fastboot, I wouldn't recommend it unless you are feeling adventurous and know what you are doing. For a detailed post on the risks involved in flashing bootloaders via fastboot, OTA, and FlashFire, hear it from Chainfire himself: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=65993362&postcount=2761

To sum it up, it is possible to flash firmware images without fastboot. There is a bit of risk involved when it comes to bootloaders, but I updated mine via FlashFire and its perfectly fine. You can still flash all the other bootloader partitions -- the ones that need to be updated regularly according to CF -- excluding primary and secondary without any fear of hard-bricking, since the fastboot partition is still intact in case something fails (unlikely) and you need to CPR the 5X. You will know what I'm talking about if you have attempted to update the bootloader with FF.

Again, there doesn't seem to be any real need to update the bootloader currently, and even if you need to, fastboot should be the first preference for most users.

Over and out.

I can not get wireless or data to work.... well I think it's half working. I can see wireless access points, but can not connect. Data is saying I'm getting LTE, but I'm not. I thought maybe it was the radio not being updated, so I updated radio and bootloader while I was at it. Did a full wipe of System, Data, and Caches(don't remember the other cache name) and did a clean install of the ROM. Still get the same issue.

    Okay guys the time is here, finally 7.1.2 for purenexus officially released!!!

    a couple things to note:
    *the rom is now signed with private keys starting with 7.1.2 this is good for security purposes, but you will be required to clean flash this build, going forward you can dirty flash as long as it is an official release
    *i have removed the built in gapps for "nexus devices" i however will not respond to any bug reports using open gapps, use the newly made BeansGapps alongside purenexus for the best results!!
    *this release mostly is focused on stability and getting all the features from 7.1.1 into 7.1.2 without issues, next release will be geared towards going over the feature request section of the g+ community
    *with 7.1.2 google updated the radio and boot loader i suggest fast-booting those as well

    ok, Lets get to the goodies!!
