FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I come from EMUI 4.1, can I flash this ROM ?
Yes, but you will need to full wipe and follow the instructions in OP

I'm on EMUI 5.X or 4.0, can I flash this ROM ?
You should roll back to EMUI 4.1 then follow OP instructions

My phone is asking for a password on boot
The master key of the old EMUI is not known and that's why we had to wipe userdata (this remove encryption).
So, that means that your Data partition is not wiped, and you have to wipe it !
Flash the Cyanogenmod recovery (built with this ROM, located in the same folder) and do a full factory reset, this work everytime.
Once done, reboot and flash this custom TWRP that handle non-encrypted userdata. You will be able to open the SD Card, flash whatever you want and restore your backup.
NB : If you flash back the stock ROM, this last will re-encrypt /data and everything will work as always.


I've waited for 10 minutes and the Cyanogen boot animation is still here
Something is wrong and prevent CM to complete the boot sequence. This is an issue to report (see below).

This ROM does not contain GApps, what should I take ?
You can find GApps package on OpenGapps
You'll need to take for ARM64 and Android 6.0 and then choose the package you want.
Tested so far : Full, Stock, Nano


I've found an issue
First of all, thanks for helping @_skypol0 !

Downloading now, I will test soon. Thanks for your work

UPDATE: I had to remove assert line in your updater-script, as my ro.build.product was Mate8 not next. After install i am currently stuck on the boot loader "Your device is booting now"

UPDATE 2: It worked!! Seemed like an issue on my end, i had to update to emui 4.1 before I was able to get the ROM to boot. Everything seems great so far. The only issue I faced was with the screen artifacting, and of course the issues you already listed. Great work
