What fixes for signal/connectivity? The nexus 5 is having issues?

If you build it from source, it doesn't have phone signal. But I think this is source or build related issue. Nothing to do with device itself.




Thanks for this;

However Getting a symlink failure. Using TWRP
I'm using latest official twrp from today and I don't got this issue.

Can you say which twrp version you use?

The camera quality is a lot worse than stock and the HDR+ function is missing :(

Also, the icons are different to stock? Such as Phone etc

I'd love to use this due to 'Stock' AOSP Browser, so much faster than Chrome imo.

the ROM is working great but on a side note...
DAMMIT DAMMIT DAMMIT
My worst dreams have come true, they have converted the stock browser to the chromium back end and now reflow on zoom is gone rendering several of my favourite site unreadable without swiping across the screen... ffffffffffffffffffffffffff

about camera, i can try to add stock camera app to next version.

but icons are not a big deal, they can be easly changed.




Not found images / icons batteries, systemUI all searched-no. It turns battery code is registered in the xml?

i don't understand what do you mean with images, what icons what battery code ?

that's sad Google removed some useful features from new browser. I hope some devs can get old features back to KitKat.

ps. I've been testing a few other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, ASOP, Tint, Opera) and it seems like Opera still has working reflow on zoom. Unfortunately Firefox removed it in version 24 and now its gone in ASOP browser as well.
