F2FS installs. If you want to try out F2FS you will have to wipe your data parition which includes your internal sd card. Some steps if you want to backup your data. PLEASE NOTE DON'T DO THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING CAN CAUSE ISSUES OR LOST DATA. IF YOU DON'T DO THIS IT WILL STILL WORK WITH THE CURRENT FORMAT EXT4.

-- Boot into Recovery

-- Flash the 2-12-15 test build and gapps to ensure you got them
-- Reboot to system

[INSTALL]
If you are new to lollipop your best bet is to install via JCSullins ToolBox. This rom will require TWRP 2.8.0 or higher. You will need a min of 800MB system partition for this to install also. Evervolv now has the backup tool in the install script so when your upgrading no more need to reflash gapps. If you have any issues let me know


[UPGRADE(Dirty Flash)]
I have noticed if you dirty flash on first boot you may experience a little lag or possible reboot. After it settles down no issues. Not sure if its art related on upgrades or what. Its hard to pin point as it only happens once and smooth after that. Recommend after an upgrade let it settle in before playing hard.


Thanks

FIrst boot is a little slow but that is due to art. I always recommend a clean install when upgrading but if you feel luck. Backup and try a dirty flash. If you have issues run a clean install and if you still have issues please post with a logcat. You can upload via bugreport in the toolbox under settings. If going from a differnt rom other then evervolv lollipop always clean install. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO BACKUP its important if you don't want to loose anything

NOTE: NEED a clean install if moving from a previous version and or another ROM.

Flashing from cm or any other ROM will require a clean install, dirty flashes can cause random reboots and random errors

I am not responsible for bricked devices, lost data, etc, etc. You all know the drill. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP

I figured id start on bluetooth to see what i need to do. I didn't do much and works great tested on speaker and keyboard. Im looking at a few other things and will do an update tomorrow. Glad moved to this newer kernel it makes a little easy to bring up the device other then a few hard issues in the beginning.

Flaahed with philz cwm. Flaahed fine. Is it just me or Is it running slow? Restoring apps has been running two hours now. Loaded kernel tuner and bumped cpu up to 1512. Still seems slow. Still awesome. I dont use bluetooth anymore or camera. Everything i use it for it works. Thanks for the speedy porting. You are always the first out of the gun.

The more you run the smoother it gets give it just a reboot. Was slower today but been picking up. Running pretty smooth now.

I'm unable to install the ROM. It's always stuck at Installing Evervolv. I've tried it with TWRP and Philz CWM.

Managed to install it with CWM. It's working really well. But I did run into a few issues. There is no root access, and the CPU governor cannot be changed from Interactive in Evervolv Toolbox.

Thank you.
