Euphoria OS ROM for Nexus 4! [Android 5.1.1]


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!)

    I am currently running the latest nightly of CM12.1 with a custom kernel for CM ( AK.KERNEL ) in order to use synapse for more in depth control , i would like to know whether the CM kernel would work for this ROM or would I have to flash the AOSP version of the kernel that would work ?

    I ran Antutu v5.7.1 on my Nexus 4 running Android KitKat 4.4.4 (factory image) and got a score of 24,992.
    Not sure why you only got 15,000, but I would not blame KitKat 4.4.4 for it.

    I’ve had problems with Google’s factory images of Lollipop 5.0.1 and above for the Nexus 4. The phone goes into a “sleep of death” status where it seems like it is off but is really still on and frozen/unresponsive and does not handle alarms, notifications, or inbound calls or messages. Hopefully, this “Euphoria” ROM will be free of that issue.
