I'm on 2.8.7 twrp. Didn't think there was anything newer.
That recovery should work fine. I have a couple newer builds out if you want to give them a try?

EDIT: My gapps link was outdated with 5.0 but we need 5.1.1 gapps now. Link has been fixed. Sorry for any confusion. This should fix the crash during setup.

The version of Candy5 is Android 5.0.2 but it's stated on the thread that it's 5.1.1 maybe am not getting the latest update.
From the dl of the OP which is candy5-Release.v1.0.1-20150226-OFFICIAL-t6.zip on AFH is version 5.0.2.
Where can I get the latest update? or if it's 5.0.2, please make changes to the title thread. Thank you

A few posts back I mentioned the new uploads were moving to basketbuild since we got our OTA app working. The changes have not been made to the OP yet. Below is my post.
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.

Quick Review

Awesome ROM! Currently rocking on the international variant. :) Not so different from CM12.1 but this is spiced up improved with a lot of useful features and customizations. network signal is great, getting full signal everywhere I go.
Few issues I would like to address is about a feature like Double-Tap feature, (with my little knowledge in Android I know it needs a kernel that support that, currently I haven't seen any kernel for our device to support that.) which is not working.
One more feature request I would like to see in the next build is to be able to display weather on the status bar, as we have seen in the mentioned ROM features that has been added to make this Candy5. Thank you :)

Just installed the last possible build on T6.
Have a couple questions:

1. Every button (back, home) has a delay, approx. 1 Sec. May I reduce this delay? it nerves.
2. 20% battery power in 8 hours - I think it's a bit too much for a device in standby mode (screen switched off), should I probably wait several days and check it again?
3. Google now... would like to remove it completely, but at the moment I even can not deactivate it any more. Earlier it was at least possible to disable the app.

The rom definitely needs a couple of days to settle in before judging the battery life. Most devices are having the buttons issue iirc. Google now should be able to be disabled within your settings..

Most devices are having the buttons issue iirc.

"Xposed Additions" module may fix it if you set doubleclick delay to 100ms. But it ruins other features: buttons do not accept any action for double or long press any more (so, no "overview", no "menu" feature etc). That's why I disabled this module. I do like this ROM, but this button lag... :(

Anyone having com.android.phone crashing on this latest build? The last 3 cm12.1 builds have this problem for the sprint variant. The 9/9 doesn't but did have a couple of random reboots.

---------- Post added at 07:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:01 PM ----------

From what I am reading, HTC locked down the fingerprint scanner to only non-tampered, locked bootloader to be usable. I try to set it up and it never goes through on any sense rom.

    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.
