Announcement from icodelife: MSM-Xtended ROM Is Back, For Moto G5 Plus

* Disclaimer 
* I am 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 blame me in any way for what happens to your device, I will laugh at you.
* BOOM! goes the dynamite


***This is no more "Cardinal Xtended". We have moved from Cardinal and starting from zero as "MSM Xtended or MSM-X".
We have tried our best to blend it with all available options, features and stability of different ROMs in to one for better user experience.
The Base is AOSP & GZOSP and thus Special Thanks to @martinusbe & Team GZR for the same.***

1) Please do not use TiB. If you want use then try Swift Backup or Migrate. These are better options for now.
2) Please Use Paid Themes preferably, so that Substratum Dev can keep on their good work.
3) If you want to try a new theme, try "Valerie" by bro @@DeadmanxXD. It's been my favorite ever since I tried it.
4) If you earn well, then don't hesitate to donate a few $$ to the devs you like. Its token of appreciation and will keep the devs motivated.

Nice running ROM with some customization options, but for some reason YoutubeTV doesn't show video (runs but audio only) which is a game stopper. Same thing happened rarely with a couple of 8.1 ROMs but this was the first Pie ROM out of several I've tried. I did use latest 9.0 micro opengapps rather than the recommended GZR nano 8.1 ones from July linked in OP, but YTV works correctly with them in all the other Pie ROMs so I doubt that's why.

I installed this rom this morning and it is great. I installed 9.0 arm64 aroma gapps from opengapps. Magisk is working. No issues with wifi or bluetooth. The last 9.0 rom I tried bluetooth worked but hfp was sketchy and audio only came through the phone despite testing multiple kernels and clean rom flashes. Love this rom thank you. This is the best 9.0 I have tried and will be my new daily.

Rom incredibly fluent, I only found a bug that is to put percentage in the battery, besides that the rom is too fast, valeu.

I love this ROM but need some stabilization work...Almost all apps that I use are getting stuck and forcing to close...Kernel setting are stock.

Edit: I have no option to record calls either.

Edit2: For some reason did another clean install and now its buttery smooth, but still can activate call recording, if someone could help me i would appreciate that.
