For getting it working right, i had to remove the Sim-Card during the first bootup. Otherwise it gets stuck on the PIN-Input.
This just occurs after the installation of the GApps.
(I tried first to get ROOT with SuperSU 2.82 and 2.79. This does not work. Only magisk worked fine (v14.5 beta)).
When i try to reboot my device with the Pop-Up Shutdownmenu, it just gets stuck and i have to turn down my device with long-pressing the shutdownbutton.

Wonderful upgrade Oreo 8.0.0 + open gapps pico + magisk 14.0, after wipe and format f2fs cache and data. Metal Rev1 Oct 2016 much faster now!
Small issue so far running for 3 days : unable to connect LTE at boot. I have to connect sequentially 3G first then LTE each time data connexion is lost.

This issue has been reported earlier with 7.1.1 upgrade
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=267
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=287

Important : No LTE issue with stock ROM (December 2016) and Eragon (October 2016).

Similar issue has been reported with Jiayu S3 Oreo 8.0.0 and earlier 7.1.2
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=148
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...postcount=5975

Other issue : unable to share LTE connexion via USB for PC. (Was OK with 7.1.2 May 27th MADOS 1.1)

Thanks anyway MAD for this ROM almost perfect!
