Love the ROM. Eagerly waiting for the next release.

Just wanted to confirm, if the the ROM uses AK Kernel ? (I do see it during boot)
I tried to flash the latest AK kernel, but it wouldn't boot (GUI will crash)

This final release for Lollipop. You don't need to flash ak kernel. The ROM ships with an kernel...

I normally don't use a Rom for more than 3 days(flashaholic instincts you see ?). When this Rom was released I used it for more than a week. That was the first time I used something on this phone for such a long time. But later shifted back to sim saber and then shuffled between temasek and ss for sometime and later settled with SS caf version for quiet sometime. The primary reason was the battery back up. I'm a heavy user, play lot of games, never use my phone for just browsing. The only thing that I read on my phone is xda on tapatalk. My 3g is always on (we don't have free WiFi yet in India in many places). A lot of signal drops at work due to low signal coverage. That means, my battery dies pretty quick before I cone back home and charge my phone(i hate to carry the big power banks or keep my phone on charger/USB at work). I missed the option of tweaking my gpu/cpu speeds, I have a pvs bin 7, can go up to -80v UV to keep my phone cooler(that's the max I dared to lower the voltage). With no custom kernel working it made my day difficult to keep the phone as a daily driver.

I'm a nexus device guy, to be honest this is my second non nexus device in the past 7+ years. I'm so used to the amazing developer community of nexus devices, and minimal OS(ex SimpleOS) was my favorite since kitkat(still have the same OS on both my nexus 5 and nexus 7 3g).
I flashed this Rom almost a month ago and found a custom version of ak (with all the options to tweak), and I'm just loving it. Haven't switched to any other Rom since then. For a heavy user like me, i get a good 3.5hrs SOT (I just don't look at it cos I know my usage but checked on this Rom). To be honest, this had given me the best battery life without any lag/sod since I have installed it. I'm gonna setup my machine again today to build my personal version of minimal.
I just want to thank the developers to get me stuck on a Rom for such a long time.

I'm just waiting for the marshmallow to become stable for our beloved opo so that minimal is back with the latest version.

I tried to flash AK #311 but systemui crashed.
You wont be able to flash any other kernel on this ROM. Use the one that is built in to the ROM. It is the custom AK kernel. Use the zip I provided above to tweak the kernel settings using synapse. Any other kernel will lead to a boot loop

There is no camera in the ROM. Just install Google Camera from Play Store or get any of your favorite camera app.

    A kind note to the people bashing the ROM​


    Let's enlighten some of y'all what minimal really means. CLICK HERE TO BE ENLIGHTENED.

    Now let's get to business.

    The ROM is how WE want it to be and it'll stay how WE want it to stay. We have worked on the ROM for more than a month.

    And to everybody who knows what minimal really means and to the people who are supporting us. Thank you and we'll continue providing updates while ignore the bashers ;)

    Take it or leave it. You bash it, we ignore it.

    This is kinda sad that we get a new ROM and the trend is now to bash them from the very beginning
    14
    The issue has been fixed. New build will drop by soon.

    Well i'm not judging the CM by their cover nor i'm saying that it's not a good rom. But as of now, it really is full of bugs. But i'll never forget the 3 years that i was able to use my device only because of CM. My galaxy ace and galaxy s3. So you don't you judge someone else either from comments. I stopped respecting Cyanogen Inc. though and i don't give two ****s if the company will fail.

    Well the post stated 'cm based roms are full of bugs' and you second that with your post so all I meant is that don't judge (Minimal OS) because it's based on CM because it is not CM.

    Fun facts to clear your assumption.

    The rom is being kept close to AOSP.
    It has been tested on G+ for over a month.
    It does not have all of CM's bloat and apps.
    The reason we tested the rom on G+ and not on XDA for such a long time was so that we can write such (this) post with confidence because somewhere down the line assumptions have become too common these days ;)

    Cheers fellow country men.
