Copying my earlier post in the cm11 thread here.

Just installed the new version. Everything looks smooth.
Calls working
USB MTP connection working
Wifi working
Mobile Data Working

Only bug found:
When in video call session, front cam gives a greenish color while back cam doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?

To install recovery, is using ODIN the only way? (I have not access to a windows computer at the moment)

Is it possible i use fastboot?

And thank you for your work!

Download the twrp.img from twrp site preferably 3.0.20 and then install flashify and flash the .IMG file this works with no pc and only if you have SuperSU installed and root access. Hope I helped

I used flashfire on google play (free) and flashed recovery twrp.

After that, reboot in recovery and flash the rom. I had to first do a wipe/cache wipe before it installed the cm12 without issues.

Then you install gapps, reboot and be patient.

Downloaded latest twrp from their page.

However I did follow the guide of how to install from another version of twrp. That did not work!

So I had to use Odin to flash the lastest twrp to my phone.

I cannot install the package as well, because is says the package is for serranoveltexx you have serranovelte

I can install the CM11 just fine.

Installing recovery_work.zip for CM12 is necessarily!!

New recovery cnahges:
Changed name from serranovelte to serranoveltexx, because my build have serranoveltexx name.
New recovery installing:
  1. Put recovery_work.zip to Micro SD(or Phone memory)
  2. Reboot recovery, install recovery_work.zip
  3. Reboot recovery
  4. And now you can install CM12.

You must install the recovery file danil provides on his first post
then it works like a charm

Bug reporting :
Phone reboots at random intervals when enabling disabling WiFi or data from status bar . Sometimes the fb messenger app can't connect to Internet while the phone can . Other issue is audio fx that cuts out every audio output when on so it must be disabled and last applications such as fb messenger notification sounds are way waaayy lower than they should be . This much I have so far . Pretty stable nonetheless
Another thing is it drains battery fast don't know if needs calibration for first time and another important thing is that if the phone sits with closed screen for too long or you were doing something hardware demanding before locking screen the phone doesn't respond to button presses for 5 minutes.

Danil if you can boost the sound for application notifications such as fb messenger and in audio calls . both are low especially notification sounds . in call Audio needs a boost cause in louder environments you can't hear anything even at max volume

---------- Post added at 07:19 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:15 PM ----------

Also folders are 2x2 and are small scrollable squares and there is no option to change that so yeah take a look into that also

So Danil super serious bug needs immediate fix . When the phone is turned off it can't charge . It shows the warranty bit kernel error and it doesn't begin to charge . If you can fix it would be perfect

So far, I can confirm the battery drain, it does drain quite faster than stock, but it gets easily through a day with low to moderate use.
Although it's quite snappy, Youtube video playback on Chrome has the video and audio out of sync. Video moves slower.
Add-on dictionaries for other languages wouldn't list additional languages I could install work for the stock keyboard so I had to reinstall google keyboard from google play, and then it worked.
I can confirm IR Blaster works for me as well.

later edit: Don't think it's a bug but an issue of CM12 in itself, I can't seem to use the phone and camera shortcuts on the lockscreen. Although I start swiping from a corner it doesn't always register the swipe, and when I finally nail it, it sometimes decides not to launch the phone or camera, This happens especially with the camera.

P.S. Any way of disabling the need to swipe twice to access quick settings in the notification drawer?It's super annoying.
I mean other than the shortcuts in the corner. I would like to always show the quick settings when I open the notifications drawer.

P.S.2 Although I am all into this google material design, damn it has a crapload of colors, it's like a skittles UI. Wished CM had an option to stick to one-two colors max

Lockscreen shortcuts work for me . Also about colours change to a theme you like in theme engine . Google keyboard is better than the aosp that's for sure . I only use YouTube app which works great . Only thing it doesn't have cardboard mode that is compatible with phone
