    @TecnoTailsPlays please compile the the @BORETS24 new build 06/12 kernel for your cm12.1. the kernel is nice.

    I don't have time for now, I am helping a Dev to work on Android m rom for Zenfone 5 and update my recreated remix rom :good:

    Edit: all working!! and y added some really nice features for you guys!!

    Changelog:

    -Now the rom will install via TWRP
    -Improved battery

    Guys I will make one more update for the cyanogenmod 12.1, that dosen't mean it will end, I need help to fix sd card in 2.0ghz kernel but no one helps me, the update will not fix bugs, it will add more stabillity, battery and performance, when I have a bug fix, I will aply to the rom, Helpers with a fix are welcome :)
