    Hey guys, Just wanted you all to know that there is an official cm12 ROM by Cyanogen Mod, they're doing nightlys, so far the first nightly is extremely smooth and very very stable, battery life is great, 4 hours S.O.T with 50% battery left, its been great for all who didn't know this, here's the link! http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=hammerhead

    I have been building nightly and CM has come a long way fast. Think they may be doing a better job with Lollipop than Google.

    I've been using CM 12 for a couple of weeks and it's great. Just installed latest nightly, love the new boot animation!

    I've had like zero issues so far. I wouldn't be surprised to see a 'stable' release soon.
