Stock user, need to install TWRP?
Flash TWRP 3.2.1-0 https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=673791459329066789 by @raystef66
If you already have TWRP installed, any version will do since the ROM will replace it with TWRP 3.2.1-6 after installation.
Download: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=818222786056032764 (I hope this is allowed now, please forgive me if the links is still not allowed by XDA)
Move the .ZIP into your internal memory as you would by moving any other file into your phone through USB.
Boot into TWRP: adb reboot recovery or by turning the phone off and pressing VolUp+Power
Do a full backup!
Wipe to perform a clean install. Recommended.
Select the .ZIP
Install with TWRP only! During installation it will be asked which modem you want to install. In my case this was the A2017G but that might not be yours. Please select correctly.
Wipe Cache and Dalvik Do not reboot yet if you want to root.
Rooting Download and install Magisk V16.4 or V16.0 exactly as you just installed the ROM.
Flash the safetynet fix linked below.
Wipe Cache and Dalvik
Edit: Changing partitions to ext4 might be necessary for some non-stock users on f2fs.. Still updating

Pretty much everything other than what I wrote above it seems. The ROM is very fast and stable, my phone feels considerably snappier than it did on stock Nougat and there doesn't seem to be many bugs at all.
