Love the ROM. Very smooth and clean.
Just some feedback:
I'm w sprint. I have the newest radios and firmware installed. I'm s-off.
I did a clean install wiping data system cache and davik cache first.
Every other day my phone will lock up.
Screen will be off and can't turn it on so I have to do a hard reboot (holding all three buttons).
Other than that I haven't had any problems.

Have you restored anything from any earlier versions like kitkat or anything? If so try installing the rom and do not restore anything for a couple days to see if you still get the hang. If all is well try restoring only a couple of things every other day until you get that freezing back so you'll know the culprit. If you have not restored anything then try using a different launcher maybe.

Mine does the same when using Camera. Not every time, but a lot (especially when I am streaming music via bluetooth).
Sprint s-off

Bluetooth Issues

I have issues with playing blootooth in my car. The sound skips every few seconds.

Is there a link to a radio which might improve this?

Time for fresh builds!

New builds coming soon! Some are in the oven now. I have just installed my new SSD so this will allow me to push builds out in about 20 minutes.

EDIT: The latest builds can be found HERE, just find your device folder. I'll update the OP with direct links soon.

On a T6VZW I can't seem to get it to boot past the startup screen, get the 4 dots spinning around but that's it. Been that way for at least 5 minutes so far on V2.0.1.
Going to try V2.5.5 soon to see if that one will work. Fresh wiped everything too, so not sure what's up with it.

EDIT: Gave it another 5 minutes and it finally booted, would it be worth installing V2.5.5 regardless or is V2.0.1 fine?

There are several updates that you would probably like in the latest.

I'm using the latest version, and after installing it, I can't make or receive phone calls. Data works normally. I tried going to APN settings and resetting to default, which didn't help - and when I go to mobile network operators, it fails immediately.

Any tips? Coming from PACMan 4.4.

I think this is an upstream bug but I'll check to verify things. I did grab some kernel commits so maybe those caused it too?

It's user error. I didn't properly select my system mode - I get dramatically better LTE performance in the default mode, but to make/receive calls I had to set it to GSM/WCDMA/LTE. Works flawlessly now, and it's far better than any AOSP ROM I've tried for this phone--not that I've tried any other Lollipop ROMs.

I've got a question for you, though, if you don't mind my asking it. Why is my GPS fully functional (and better than the stock ROM) with this, whereas it was completely nonfunctional using pacman? Is that just a quirk of the kernel they/you are using?

That would be something in our candy source since I'm using the same or very similar kernel as Pac uses.

I tried flashing rom, followed wiping steps, and it keeps erroring out in first setup. I get to where it wants you to enter your name, it times out on settings select wait or ok. Then give it a minute or so it comes back click next and it takes you back to the get started part of initial setup. Just repeats. Any idea? I'm on the Sprint build.

Have you updated your recovery lately? Maybe give that a try & I'll see if I can replicate the issue myself.

    T6VZW Added to OP! T6Intl Also Added!!

    So where is the International version ??!!!:rolleyes:

    Uploading soon! Build just finished compiling. I'll be in bed soon but you can look for it on our candy afh site.

    Awesome ROM so far. I've been trying to figure out the sim card not inserted on sprint cm12 builds. I guess its just because its still in development. I kinda hit a wall with it so far lol. Thanks for the rom

    Doesn't taking the sim out and putting it back in restore service? I think it did for me on cm12.

    Will there be a international version??
    Really desire to test international version ASAP!!!:D

    See first quote!

    @gimmeitorilltell

    Does this contain the Sprint service problems that CM has?

    T6 of all variants will be shared here. Flyhalf205, yes it has the same issues. If you go into settings, more, and something else, tap on cellular networks "I believe" then you will get cell, texting, 4G, & 3G data until you reboot next.

    EDIT: T6VZW has been added to the OP, International is coming soon. Sorry folks it's been really busy at my house & job.

    T6SPR in OP

    kindly upload update for sprint also:eek:

    The Sprint build has now been updated! Untested due to work but so long as you make a nandroid you should be fine "if" something were to go wrong. I doubt it will tho. Enjoy!

    The radio issues should be pretty stable in my next build. Flyhalf205 has done some work on this for our devices I believe.

    Yep. Just merge an hour or two ago in main CM source.

    T6SPR

    candy5-RC.v0.9.0-20141224-OFFICIAL-t6spr has been added to the OP and more to follow. Sorry for the long delays in getting my builds up to date. It's kind of tough with the real life going on around me during the holidays. I'll be off work for a week so it's time to get my builds updated! Cheers.
