Pre requisites

  • Your Nexus 5 must be rooted with it’s boot loader unlocked. To know how to root your phone on Android L click here.
  • You must have a custom recovery installed, like TWRP or CWM.
  • Your phone must be charged over 80%.
  • Some common sense and ability to follow instructions.


With that done, let’s get this show on the road.

Step 1

Boot into recovery mode. To do so, power off your phone. Press and hold Volume Down, Volume Up and Power, all at the same time. Release the buttons only when the Fastboot / Bootloader Mode menu appears. Use one of the Volume buttons to change the START text to Recovery Mode. When Recovery Mode option is listed in the above part of the Fastboot Mode menu you can press Power. The custom TWRP / CWM Recovery menu should now appear.

Step 2

Backup your current ROM from your custom recovery.

Step 3

Do a complete wipe, data and cache.

Step 4

Navigate to your SD Card and select the ROM zip file. Flash the ROM. (For your convenience we advise that you keep the zip file at the root of your SD card)

Step 5

If you’re so inclined, flash the GAPPs package.

Step 6

Reboot. The first boot will take about 10 minutes.

That’s about it folks. We will leave you now with a few screenshots of this absolutely kickass ROM.
