CAF-AOSP for the Huawei GX8

Based on the kernel and device tree of @surdu_petru. Without his work on this device this would not have happened. Thanks to @yuweng and @gopinaidu77 for their help in making the appropriate changes. Also thanks to @earlymon and ncrypt3d for helping me out along the way. Lastly, and certainly not least, thanks to @crpalmer and the rest of the kiwi team. Please let me know if I've left anyone out.


Code:
* 
* Your 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. 
*

Working
Everything should be working pretty well. Same bugs as CM13.

Not working
???

  • 11/9/16 - Sorry for the **** build. New one should be good to go. *edit* [email protected] swear filter.
  • 11/7/16 - Data while sleeping should be fixed. Thanks to @InkSlinger420 for pointing me in the right direction.
  • 10/13/16 - Reverting to the former GPS blobs (see CM13 thread) breaks this rom.
  • 10/08/16 - Some minor changes were pushed to the source. Included here.
  • 9/28/16 - Changed model number to RIO-L03. Insignificant if you have the RIO-L01 variant. Probably the last update until either 1. CAF repo is updated or 2. Changes to fix bugs from the CM13 thread.
  • 9/26/16 - Changed DPI to 440 (default is 480). If you don't like it, use a DPI app in the play store to change it back.
  • 9/24/16 - added latest device changes courtesy of @surdu_petru. should see improved battery life and performance.
  • 9/20/16 - removed NFC code. should see slightly better battery life. updated sources in OP.
  • 9/13/16 - Initial Release

Did you wipe system, data, and both caches before flashing? I haven't seen this issue on mine.

Hey bro... I really enjoy this ROM... I have just a couple of questions:
Is there any way to fix the offline charging animation?
Also I get an error using open Gapps stock package, however the micro package works fine. Is there any way to use the stock package?
Thanks

1. Not that i've found yet. the same thing happens on AOSP-based roms on the honor 5x. Not sure what's up with that, but it does seem to charge when powered down.
2. Larger open gapps packages are broken on this rom. Not sure what the problem is. I recommend banks gapps for this rom. Also slim is very similar and works fine with the larger open gapps packages. has latest security updates as well.

Just a couple more questions:
I noticed my signal seems to be weaker though I haven't experienced any drops. Is that to be expected? I've noticed it particularly on 4G.
Also, will the latest security patches be included in the next update? I really like how clean this ROM is do I prefer it over other roms like CyanogenMod/Resurrection/Slim
