Resurrection Remix Oreo

It should go without saying, but do not lock your bootloader with this installed. You must be 100% stock, I'd suggest on both slots, in order to re-lock your bootloader. Doing otherwise will likely lead to a brick that Essential really shouldn't warranty.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *

Prerequisites
  • Unlocked boot loader
    FLASH THIS FIRMWARE BEFORE YOU BEGIN

FLASHING FUTURE UPDATES AS THIS ROM DOES NOT SUPPORT SEEMLESS UPDATES


Turn off security pin/fingerprint etc

Reboot to Fastboot

In Fastboot, you can use this command:

Code:
fastboot getvar current-slot
The output should be partition A

If not execute next command(we need it to be on B)

Code:
fastboot set_active other
This should set the Partiton to B

Reboot to recovery from within the bootloader

TWRP Should boot

Set partition to A in reboot option

Then flash the rom

after that reboot again to twrp recovery again and select partition A and flash gapps zip

then Reboot




SETTING UP ROOT USING THE BOOT.IMG


After setting up the device, download the boot.img from nutrino kernel thread and install magisk manager and patch the boot.img using magisk

copy patched boot to pc

reboot to bootloader

Flash the patched boot.img via fastboot

You should be able to boot properly and with magisk enabled and root

General Information

*Play Store keeps hanging up on restoring apps? A reset starts the restore again, but hangs up after a few apps are installed.

A)You need to force stop the play store app in setting, and then open it again

Build 3 Notes
with april security patch and bug fixes released
Flash nutrino kernel for best performance

ALSO Even though gapps are included in the build they dont work for some reason on dirty flashing
So Also download the gapps i have included in the OP and flash right after the rom without reboot

If you have any random user app fcs
uninstall the app and redownload from playstore

Enjoy!!
