Here's a good place to start for CM12 themes.
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112270486113315228704

****Please Understand that the CM12 Theme Engine is in its early stages and some things may not work or function as they should. Use at your own risk and don't complain about themes in this thread. Our Team has worked really hard to theme this ROM the way we like it....The CM team has to get their theme engine bugs worked out, we are just happy to have it in there to play around with for now.....ALSO, please don't ask us about anything to do with xposed framework as Validus does not support xposed. Use it at your own risk and please don't report ANY bugs you may encounter while using it.

I would reformat and try not using f2fs.. Its still alittle buggy for some.. I don't have any issues.. If you could tell me the steps you are taking.. Also when you flash try flashing the ROM twice then boot then flash gapps.. Again, make sure you are doing a COMPLETE clean install..

If it restarts in the middle of optimizing then just let it reboot and go through its thing again.. It shouldn't but if it does..

What are your partitions currently? When you select wipe, advance and check each partition. Also when you were changing the partitions to f2fs did you do them individually or did you select all the partitions you wanted and changed it that way? They should all be done on an individual basis. Also if it keeps giving you troubles I would go with what Chris was saying and revert back from f2fs. Me personally I've had good luck with f2fs, but our hercs have minds of their own lol

Works just fine for me.. Hold coma then settings icon will pop up slide finger up on icon and boom..

-the touching sound is extremely very very low.
Want louder sound? Use LATEST viper4android.. Make sure its the latest version..

Ok Thanks! i'll try this rom, sounds great!

if you are on Sultans recovery then you must flash original TWRP recovery first.. Then complete wipe like @raptor170 said

This is a very good ROM - been on it for a few days (running f2fs) and it's very solid. Most importantly, all major functions are working (zero issues with calls, data, WiFi, TMo visual voice mail, photosphere camera, etc.)

There are some minor issues in the UI such as the recent panel not always popping up, but I think that's a known issue with all current LP ROMs? But nothing that breaks phone functionality for me.

Came from Liquid Smooth and no regrets at all. :) Thanks for the hard work.
