you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Nothing special, this one is updated one with stability improvements. the official one is V6.5 and this one is V6.6. ;)
and probably this one is gonna be the official one soon, I already applied for official, and the previous dev is gonna drop this rom soon, he is a super busy guy.

I am using the previous ROM (marked as official). Will you be doing monthly updates with security patches? I also have a rather big issue with the official ROM. Aafter rooting the ROM with Magisk, my Nexus 5 reboots itself from time to time, sometimes when getting a call. I am mainly interested in having an actively supported ROM and I like AEX, it gives me everything I need without installing Magisk modules (I am just using Magisk to root it).

You can check this out as well. don't worry about updates & security patches, I'm giving my best for this device. time to time I will update this rom ( monthly basis ). and I have no clue about your rooting issue because I don't have the logs. so I can't say anything about it. the truth is N5 is now older enough ( still a legend :cool: )& believe me it's really hard to make it future proof with updates.
my recommendations are: flash the modified twrp twrp-3.3.1-HH-hammerhead & use the pico or nano version of Gapps for better performance.
If you face any kind of issues with this rom as like previous rom then don't forget to share your problem with me. :eek: I'm here to help.

Buddy, I totally understood your situation, but I can't add or remove stuff from this rom because of guidelines, but i can highly suggest you use the modified twrp for better experience. it increases your system 1GB to 1.5GB. or better to wait for my pixel experience rom its more stable and smoother. ( currently under maintenance).

Does this rom have the notification bug?
EJ: Do I have to have whatsapp open for messages to arrive? Since it does not work in second plane

PD: Thank you for keeping our N5 up to date!
