Works in A500Y

Sorry, I took your zip, modify the installation script and installed in another variant. Your ROM works perfectly in A500Y except the camera does not capture photos. Sorry if that upset you :fingers-crossed: . Apart from the browser downloads do not work, either file browser, and gapps crashed after installation. Anyway, good job, congratulations :D:D

I launched as a beta tester of this new rom :)

First look :

Importants :

1) Battery life is very low (fast unloading)
2) Random reboot
3) Very slow connection to the wireless network

Crash :

1 ) Privacy -> Blocked caller list -> Settings

Others :

1) Unlocking very slow sim card
2) Stop and reboot very slow
3) Files manager does not work
4) Long press on icon of drop down does not display the desired menu


Other things will be added progressively :)

Most of those issues are due to CM still merging their code and adding their features. So you should not waste your time looking for bugs just yet. I'm well aware of the situation

that's why I said "most". I'm using cm13 for 3 days now and I have never had any random reboots, battery life is about the same if not even better. Ofc I'm using a private build with a few patches that are not merged in cm yet, so as soon as cm merges them I'll upload a new build
