For those of you looking for a solid Android 5.1.1 custom ROM with great performance, check out the latest Euphoria OS ROM. This isn’t the world’s most highly-customizable ROM but it is definitely one of the fastest I’ve tried this week, scoring 26,524 on Antutu.
I’ve actually took a quite a long break on my Nexus 4 for awhile but man, these Android 5.1.1 ROMs make your Nexus 4 fly! The Antutu scores aren’t as high as some of the newer phones but compare Nexus 4 Antutu scores around 15,000 on KitKat versus 26,524 on Android 5.1.1!
Aside from benchmarks, all the apps run faster than ever, UI breezes through everything, especially with the Euphoria OS ROM. The main features like themes and settings are nearly identical to latest CM12.1 ROM but I feel like speed is much faster with this ROM. Oh yeah, everything works out of the box on this ROM, absolutely no bugs whatsoever.
If you are looking for a good Android 5.1.1 ROM, definitely check this out for this week’s ROM of the week and let me know what you think! (but I think it’s AWESOME!)
Download Android 5.1 Gapps (DO NOT USE older Gapp as you will FC!!!)
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system. For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
