hell yeah..finally thank you! i will try it as soon as possible(using cm 12.1 by nick) and did you overclocked the GPU to 700 GHz?
Can you also lower the brightness as much as possible for battery and night? cause it can only be done when ROM is made! Please

I've been waiting for this for so long! Hopefully the J500M variant will be up soon.

Thanks for the hard work!

FINALLY! I have the 8GB variant, and the latest update disabled my ability to rollback. (it's an irreversible firmware update) I'm just waiting until this thing is usable enough.

If you have an 8GB, it's literally impossible to install anything with all the bloat.

Thank you for this useful comment!
CM13 has the option to format externalSD as internal. Also, users that flash irreversible firmwares will be able to have an AOSP based ROM.
Instead of just waiting for CM13 to be stable, you can contribute to make this work faster. Search and find errors through logcat, discuss them here so we can take a look on them.
This applies to every user out there. That's why XDA is made for, after all!

Regards,
Nick Verse.

    [INFO]CyanogenMod Project

    That's really frustrating for CyanogenMod to be shut down as a project upstream! No matter what, me, @#Henkate, and @ganesh varma will continue to support this device, and try our best to provide killer ROMs! :D
    Let me know below by commenting:


    Which is your most preferred ROM flavour?
    What are the features that makes this flavour unique to you?

    Thank you again for all the support throughout this year!

    Regards,
    Nick Verse.

    A new build for J500F with the camera fix will be available in a couple of hours for testing. Nick seems to be busy with some work so I'll be building for other variants once the results come out for this build. The other variants will be followed in the upcoming days.

    Note: This will be the last and final build of CyanogenMod 13 as we are now moving to LineageOS. There will be no further development of this rom! :good:
