Ty yes that worked and gapps from lp 2014 seem to work too. I notice need to download all new apks for 5.1. But this rom is super smooth no fc`s and ive tried them all on here. I noticed downloading apps much faster and performance better than 5.0 and of course KK.

Don't use the pa gapps; the packages are rejected as being only for 5.0 if you attempt to flash their zips in TWRP. I used the most recent package linked to by Hashcode's Lollipop thread: d-h.st/RLt9 -- I gather that many of the individual apps are being rejected as not compatible (because only a relative few are shown as being "optimized"), but together with the SuperSU update 2.46 at download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip , I have what seems to be a stable, crisp, rooted Lollipop Kindle. No extended desktop support, I see. As noted in other ROMs on other devices, changing the CPU governor doesn't work; it wants to be interactive. Antutu score after overclocking to 1.632GHz and loaded down with many apps: 18,488.

I have put a link to the lollipop gapps I use along with superSU which can both be flashed in recovery and work fine for me. I can't understand why it wants to stay as interactive governor, I've only just noticed this and will find out.
As long as omnirom keep updating their sources, I will keep updating this ROM, and as you can tell my kernel is included by default in this ROM and that too will be updated when I get a chance.
Also I see sabermod have done some work on parts of omnirom, just like I made my liquid smooth ROM fast, I will use sabermod tweaks to make this ROM fast and less buggy as possible :)

Can you add a link in the op to the dl page? I'm not trying to be a pita, but tapatalk won't access the dl menu. Not a big deal to open a browser, but a link would be a nice shortcut.

Love your work, man. Thanks for keeping us on the cutting edge.

    Thankyou everyone for all your support for this ROM, I'm hoping to re-sync the sources and release a new version very soon. I'm watching the omnirom sources and as soon as a major fix, performance improvement or major feature is implemented, I will build asap! Thankyou :)

    Tried all roms LP and this one is good. But its only first impressions, will try it for some days. Great problem of all LP roms they are freezing compire with cm11 roms

    I'm rebuilding now with sabermod toolchain, and graphite flags which reduce CPU and Ram usage, effectively "streamlining" the ROM and making it run faster utilising less resources, so hopefully less freezes.
