Default [Q] Custom ROM

As many us experienced, the OPO seems to be riddled with issues.
My biggest issues are:
-Multi-touch
-Ghost touch/Typing issues
-Camera. Often says it is not connected.

OPO has said the Multi-touch and touchscreen related issues are software. I was wondering if any custom ROM as already figured out the solution. Not being able to type quickly and correftly is extremely aggravating.

I know the issues with ghosting. It's really annoying. I've just slowed down my typing speed but it still gets annoying. It's likely a software thing. The camera issue is the camera driver failing to start. Happened on my lg g2 however the kernel dev added a button to his app that restarted the camera driver. I get the error when I use snapchat a lot. Besides those I'm really liking this phone!

Have you tried any custom ROMs? Found any solutions? Seems to be getting worse.. Really sucks.

The only way you're going to find out is to flash a ROM for yourself. Make a backup first, that way if you need to go back out only takes a couple of minutes to restore it.

Well I am pretty sure Camera issue is due to incorrect GApps installed (if you are on custom ROM), for me I have moved from CM to PA to Mahdi and never had any issues. In terms of typing issues there was a fix made on Mahdi (from CM commit I guess) and it has improved but no 100% gone yet. But as far I know it should be fixed relatively soon with CM update (big one) pending. Apart for multi touch i find the phone pretty nice actually Just my $.02
Simple thanks goes a long way

I've heard good things about Mahdi. Now seriously considering!
Is there an eta on the next cm update?

They don't ever give ETA's, just like any other dev, and it's rude to ask them.

Awe bummer.. No time line for my suffering.
Although I agree with not asking for eta when it comes to a freelance developer, I do think this is different as they are no longer a developer that does it for their leisure and pleasure, but cm now does it for a profit, profit that comes from our pockets as we pay for the phone. So in my opinion, we have a semi right to know when what we're paying for, will be fixed
Not trying to argue. I agree it's rude to ask other developers for eta
