Hey, I have Questions about this Rom.
Have it any Bugs with the RIL function?
And where can I get the Bootloader and the Modem for Android 5.0.2 for my SM-A500FU?
And what about the Battery Life, is it better with this ROM? Or is the Battery faster dead?

Sry. for my English it is not the best, because I am a german guy and my english is not very good :p

No bugs with RIL function
For me, battery life is almost like stock rom
I do not know where to find the Bootloader and modem for Android 5.0.2
