I never expected to see Oreo on this device. I installed this ROM last night, and so far it is running well. Thanks for building and sharing!

Coldhans, I know you're working on two roms for this device. Is arrow your own implementation, and that's why it's unoffical? I'd rather put this on my phone if it is. I know I shouldn't ask, but the other rom that you're working on(crdroid) says it's able to install magisk, so is there no root implementation on this one too? Can I install any root, or does one already exist on this? This will make up my mind up on which to install.

Arrow's next build will be official.

crDroid uses LOS inbuilt root; Arrow doesn't have root built in and will require Magisk or another root solution.

Yay! I use magisk to install xposed, which has xposed edge (my gesture control). Can't live without it.

A couple issues i have got.
WhatsApp camera + Video calling - works by itself at times but mostly doesnt
Video playback on WhatsApp (+GIF) and Instagram doesn't work good.
Does anyone have the issues?

And the volume in call is very low.
Is there a workaround apart from using Custom Kernel (when we have it) and tweaking the speaker gain?
