Default Few questions about your rom

thanks alot for your work.

I'm thinking about buying the s750. does your rom (or the device) support usb-otg and did you manage to include call recording-audio-libs? maybe call recording libs are already included (lenovo = chinese company, call recording = legal in china).

The rom already supports Call recording. For the usb-otg, at the moment, isn't supported.

Unfortunately WiFi is not functional correctly.
Once it is connected it started to drop off and connection error. You need to reboot Phone. Could you check it?

I've not found this issue, I'm using Wifi connection constantly when I'm at home. Did you done a Wipe data and cache when you've installed my rom the first time?

I have wiped phone etc. like you wrote.

andrea_d86
Yep, I have tried to turn off Wifi Optimalization in the settings and wifi sleep.

We will see if I see any difference.

But you can't imagine how happy I am that you ported this rom for Lenovo phone.

This phone doesn't interest people or developers but it is a great one!
