Introduction:
Welcome to PhotonAOSP! Photon AOSP is a lightweight, performance/feature packed AOSP based ROM for the Nexus family of devices. The goal of this ROM and Project PhotonAOSP as a whole is to take AOSP and modify it with useful and important features that everyone loves and uses daily. Note that this ROM will never have as many features as BlissPOP, PureNexus, Pac-man ROM, etc. but will only contain necessary features such as ones found in Omnirom, Chroma, etc. PhotonAOSP delivers (and will always continue to do so) the latest AOSP source code with Google's latest security patches.

Instructions for Installation:
  1. Download latest ROM build
  2. Reboot into TWRP
  3. Make backup (optional)
  4. Wipe Data/Cache/System and Factory reset (if coming from another ROM)
  5. Wipe Cache (if updating from a previous build of PhotonAOSP)
  6. Flash ROM
  7. Flash GApps
  8. Reboot

Nope...Stock kernel that comes with the ROM should work fine. Of course, i don't own bullhead (only angler) so I would need someone to test it out once I release tomorrow's builds :eek:
It seems that your platform_kernel_lge_bullhead is private ? i can't find it on github. Just trying to build the rom from source :)

Right now...Photon Settings are W.I.P. Wait for today's update for more features

Please update your OP so it only includes the features that are actually included in the ROM. Your features list is very misleading and people are downloading and flashing it expecting features that are not yet available.

As a suggestion - an existing features and a WIP features section would be nice. It would tell us what is really available and what is in the works.

Thank you for the hard work!

Mostly DT2W and then the previous post where you stated that Photon Settings was also not available. Maybe I misunderstood, if I did, I apologize.
