The latest update not a complet firmware,just only a patch. ~22MB

Well, then the dev's could "just" apply the patched files to previous source and rebuild the image...
That shouldn't be too hard for original ROM dev's to achieve?

The update.zip also not worked for me with TWRP. The update started,but stopped with an error. I was an idea: the problem is the root or TWRP, but i didn't tried with unrouted FW and stock recovery.

Update.zip is for version 2016-11-17 only. You must update you phone to version 2016-11-17 using SP Flash Tool (uncheck preloader and userdata).

I never had touchscreen issues (last update probably also fixes this), so only battery life got better (lasts 4 days now, was 3 days before update). Only broken thing now is fingerprint sensor, which is next to useless.

So far my only issue with the newest version is the battery.
Phone idle and cell standby eats both almost everything and I can't get it through day.
Even with ALL apps turned off and plane mode it eats up to 15% in 6 hours or so.

Sometimes the phone just only turn off the screen and not go to deep sleep. If reboot then work for few hours and stop deep sleep for next reboot. You can see it with betterbatterystats or cpu spy.
