Install Android 5.0 Broken OS Custom ROM on Nexus 6

Previously we posted the Resurrection Remix ROM for Nexus 6, which was based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The developer didn’t mention the bugs in it and it looks like there were some who found some bugs in it. Although instead of going back to the older ROM, just like me, we have another custom ROM for you. This one seems to be pretty better than other custom ROMs although the name states otherwise (JK!).

This ROM is based on AOSP sources and SlimKat resources, based on Android 5.0 Lollipop and mostly features Dark Theme like Dark Circles, Dark Contacts and anything else is based on Dark theme too. The official features-list is available on the official thread. Visit it and give it a look. In this Article, we will show you How to Install Android 5.0 Broken OS Custom ROM on Nexus 6. If you are interested in Other ROMs, you can Visit our Custom ROMs section or you can install this ROM on your Nexus 6 by following our tutorial below. This is not an official release from Google but a Custom ROM. You need to use the Fastboot commands to install this custom ROM. Your device must be rooted. Let’s go through the ROM features and early preparations and then flash this ROM.
