 * Your (probably expired) warranty is now void.
 * 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 point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Hi all,

This ROM is in a very early development stage, so you can expect a lot of things broken.
Please don't expect to use this ROM as a daily driver.

What is working:
  • Audio (playback)
  • Bluetooth
  • Graphics
  • Camera - photo, video recording (w/out audio)
  • Sensors
  • RIL
  • GPS
  • Wifi
  • USB
  • Video playback (HW/SW)

What is not working:
  • Audio recording
  • Proximity & Orientation sensors
  • GPS
  • Camera may not start at times
  • System time issues (alarm might not work or start with a delay)
  • maybe yet something


Installation order:

The installation below requires a repartition of the phone internal sdcard in order this ROM fit on /system partition. DO NOT proceed an installation if you are unsure what you're doing and how to deal with a possible consequencies.
  • before installation make sure you have a TWRP recovery
  • install chrono kernel (both ROM and the corresponding kernel are located in the same directory - see ROM link below)
  • reboot recovery
  • flash ReParted zip. This will wipe system, data and cache partitions!
  • install ROM
  • install chrono kernel again
*please note a possibly undesirable effect of the repartition: cache partition will be decreased to 15 MB and some ROMs that rely upon this partition won't boot. To restore original sdcard partition layout, flash stock 4.1.2 ROM (with PIT file).


Special Thanks:

  • @isaak, @enkflr, @Pdevo, @prometej-zg for donating this phone!
  • @S.AMU for providing FTP-Server

Here is my feedback.
1- No space for flashing pico gapps so I guess we will have to use microG.
2- Random freezes that takes like a minute then locks the phone.
3-Sometimes, WiFi didn't work and I had to restart. When pressing the icon it flashes green then goes back to grey again.
4-Bluetooth isn't working at all ( not sure if it's only me or what because it never worked on LOS 15.1 too ).
5-GPS not working as well.
6-I hope you add HardwareKeys remap, navigation gestures and Traffic monitor, of course if you don't mind.
That's pretty much it. If you can fix the second and third problems, this ROM can be used as a daily driver.

Nice to see some efforts of developing custom ROMs here, but amount of non-working features scares me
I would rather stick updating some my older ROMs like UltimateROM (but no promises though).

Mainlining/forward porting work always comes handy, irrespective of whether one's interested to Android/Linux or GNU/Linux.
