Announcement from DaOldMan: Aspire V5.0 has been announced !

# Flash it at your own Risk!
# Your warranty is now VOID: Knox warranty bit is changed to 0x1 !
# We are not responsible for any damage to your equipment, loss of warranty or any kind
  of damage caused by incorrect work of the rom(like your alarm clock not working)!
For heavy kernel users warning: The "tap2wake"  feature is still experimental! By using it you agree with the fact that this can cause Touchscreen freezes or other unpredictable effects. Continue at your own risk.
To all devs: Please contact us before you use any of our rom files in your roms.

This is a developers thread. Asking for ETAs is not allowed. Please use it mainly to submit error reports, using the template bellow to help us improve the rom.

Please use the following "Template" for reporting errors:
1. Bootloader version + baseband (from phone info samsung app - firmware tab)
2. Recovery wipes + old ROM version (if dirty flashed)
3. Kernel (name&version) flashed after rom installation + kernel tweaks (KA, synapse or init.d scripts)
4. Fixes/zips flashed in recovery manually
5. Logs for app FC (data/system/dropbox folder - appcrash file) + matlog if possible
6. Logs for hot reboots to be submitted to kernel dev using syslog app (or manually extracting proc/last_kmsg + data/log/prev_dump.log)

This rom is a product of a team effort. Version 5.0 took us 5 months to build. As in every rom release the team was involved continuously and again we got a lot of help from other devs as well. I thank all for their philanthropic work.

12. S8 theme and apps
13. StageFright patched

How to install:
1.. Check if you have one of supported models, listed above.
2.. Latest modem & bootloader for your model must be preinstalled.
3.. If not, you will need to install them before you continue.
Warning: Using any of the two options of dirty flashing methods found in Aroma will only work with ext4 partition type!
1. Move the rom to the sd card of the mobile.
2. Be sure you backed up the EFS ! Backup everything else you have in phone.
3. Use twrp recovery 2.x ( recommended) not 3.x as it doesn't work with Aroma installer and installation will fail.
4. Enter recovery. Dirty flash is possible for users with our 4.01 rom (Backup everything in case something goes wrong). Full wipe is required for users of other versions (even for users of v2.0)! (Wipe data/factory settings) . Sprint users that want to get VoiceMail support also need to make a full wipe. Don't wipe the sd card as well . Install the rom from sd card.
5. Use Aroma to choose options and install the actual rom.
6. Reboot.
7. If you installed Magisk wait a bit for the Magisk Manager to appear. It takes few minutes sometimes.
8. Enjoy the rom.
