Thanks goes to @nilezon for giving me the rundown, as it is all from his repos, save for a couple of things to make it work for the Z5 instead.
(Yes, your bootloader has to be unlocked)

Kernel is based on firmware version 32.0.A.6.152

There is two versions of the kernel: one with a recovery script, and one without.

The one with the recovery script will allow you to boot into recovery during your phone's startup process.

To enter recovery:
Boot up your phone like normal. Wait for the LED status light to turn amber. Once that happens, start pressing the volume buttons a few times. This will take you into the recovery menu.

The one without the recovery script does not have this option. This means that your phone will boot up a few seconds faster than the one with it.

Xposed: The Camera 2.0.apk plays nicely with Xposed now. No need to deoxed it manually!

Anyways:

TWRP
https://goo.gl/k9PiFV - TWRP 2.8.7.0

KERNELS
https://goo.gl/wzUAv4 - With recovery script, flashable zip file
https://goo.gl/8LTc9l - No recovery script, .img file that must be flashed through fastboot

For the recovery:
Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
to just boot into it to flash a zip
OR
Code:
fastboot flash recovery.img
to flash it (although, you will need to do fastboot boot recovery the first time to get into it)

Kernel:
Code:
fastboot flash boot z5_stock_fixed_fixed.img
- For the .img file

The blues are oranges instead, like his, but it is kinda cute.

Have fun.

Technically you can flash the boot.img in the recovery 😛

It's fairly easy to make it bootable.
Modify your boot.img ramdisk using this code and instructions:
https://github.com/jackfagner/twrp-s...ry-boot-script

Then just flash the recovery with fastboot.

I saw that at the bottom of your post right afterwards I'll modify it in a bit here, but I wanted to make sure it was going first. Thanks for making that script!

Thanks, bazhip.
Can you provide the modified source and a quick run through on how to compile it on github?

The kernel or TWRP? I'm kinda busy though so I'm not sure when I'll get around to it. If you want, look at the dirty ROOT thread for nizelion and my posts. I was pretty vocal about the process and what I was doing, as it was my first time ever doing it. You should be able to follow it, I think.

That, and ro.secure disabled and ro.debuggable enabled. As close to stock as possible.
