Possible revive with device?

This might be a silly question, but zephiK has always said he's never had a N5. If I send him one that I have lying around, do you think he might pick it up again? Probably a long shot, but can't blame me for trying :D

    Chroma is a lightweight AOSP ROM focused on battery, performance and stability.
    The philosophy of Chroma is to stay relatively close to Google's stock Marshmallow with the additions of essential features that should have been included with stock Marshmallow as well as providing the most up-to-date security patches.


    Modified version of hellsgod's HellsCore kernel
    Layers support
    Native LED notifications (solid, limited to RGB colors)

    Status Bar Customization:
    Battery Style (Icon Portrait/Landscape, Circle, Text, Hide) and Battery Percentage
    Clock & Date (Show/Hide, Color, Alignment, AM/PM, Show/Hide Date, Date Style, Date Format)
    Brightness Control (long press status bar to change brightness)
    Double-tap status bar to turn screen off
    Show/hide notification count
    Quick pull-down on left/right side to pull down tiles
    Network traffic
    Pressing on clock or date on status bar opens up Clock, Calendar
    Status bar weather
    Show/hide brightness slider

    Navigation bar customization
    Navigation bar height
    Kill app back button
    Double tap navigation bar to sleep
    Clear all recents button (swipe down on recent apps and it'll display on the bottom right)

    Lock screen customization
    Lock screen wallpaper
    Power menu customization (power off, reboot, screenshot, airplane mode)
    Advanced Reboot (reboot/soft reboot/recovery/bootloader)

    Volume rocker customization:
    Wake device with volume keys when screen off
    Long press volume up/down keys to skip track when screen off

    A large number of optimizations, memory leak fixes, security patches
    Long press recents to swap back to previous app
    Prevent camera shutter sound
    ... and more (see changelog)

    Special thanks to:
    • People who have tipped/donated to me to support ongoing development
    • hellsgod for the kernel
    • Sykopompos for being a good friend
    • CyanogenMod as well as the open source community

    Pre-requisites: unlocked bootloader | latest TWRP recovery
    1. Download ROM, Gapps and put it on the phone's internal storage.
    2. Boot into TWRP recovery.
    3. Coming from a different ROM? Perform a factory reset using TWRP and wipe /system in Advanced wipe. If you're upgrading from Chroma ROM, proceed to dirty flash (nandroid backup before flashing is a good idea)
    4. Clean Installation: Flash ROM, GApps
    ....Dirty Flash: Flash ROM, no need to wipe
    5. Reboot and enjoy.
