Hi,
It's my daily driver for the past few days and I'm really surprised by its fluidity, lightness and speed.
I recommend GS5 owners to test this ROM because it's worth it.
Thanks to the team DIVEST 😉

Using a different kernel will dramatically reduce security.

Are you using a VPN? I've found they cause non-stop battery drain.
Any other long-running background apps?

Any spam in logcat?
The battery drain issue was from the new battery I bought from Ebay. The battery was not original. No, I'm not running VPN. Thanks for the ROM
