This method behaves very poorly at low resolution - I ran some tests
recently on a variety of 3.0-4.5A structures solved by molecular
replacement, and while the rotamer fitting usually decreased the R-factor,
it always made the clashscore much worse. I wouldn't bother using it if you
have worse than 3.0A data.

If you use phenix.ready_set, it will handle the ADP molecules.
Interestingly in previous release version the same refinement runs produced:

We increased the weight on the nonbonded restraints 5x in the last few
releases - this always improves the clashscore and Ramachandran statistics
at low resolution, although it doesn't change the R-factors very much.
Still, 12% is an awful lot of Ramachandran outliers, even at that
resolution. If you're willing to experiment a little, try adding
"ncs.type=torsion" to the parameters (without hydrogens) and let us know
