Check out Dotta's thread in general. Youre looking for the ruu. Im assuming your s-off, so look for the latest (5.0.1) this comes with computer run program or load from sd card via hotboot. This comes pre rooted, so after that youll have to set up your recovery again, and after that youre good to flash any rom youd like. Digital high's GPE rom has an update to 5.1 support, so look there.

also is there a decent stock 5.1 sense rom thats debloated I kind of want to go back to that or cyanogen

100% stock ROM
http://forum.xda-developers.com/ver...-4-17-605-9-stock-resources-firmware-t3196906

also mine based off this base pretty much stock with some tweaks
http://forum.xda-developers.com/ver...rom-fluent-rom-v1-0-rls1-4-16-1540-8-t3007173

(if you want to debloat more than what the ROM has, just download something like root explorer and remove what you don't want. Takes all of 5 minutes at most and a reboot)

well my phone is in a bootloop now and i cant get into hboot because it sees the ruu and wants to flash it and i cant get my sd card out

You need to remove sd card, or boot to a ROM and change the name of file on sdcard....

If youre using twrp flashify doesnt have the latest update the latest is 2.8.7.0, youll have to install 2.8.5.0 and then and flash the upgraded img. In recovery. I had raido problems going to 5.1 update and the way i fixed it was by updating twrp before flashing rom. Let your phone read hboot, hit power down, eject sd card and then reboot. You can flash ruu again to start clean and fix bootloop, if that doesnt work the exe version does work. Advise is to remove sd card powered down, so when in hboot you can select and load into fastboot.

Best of luck,
