Descendant

Descendant is a customised Android that aims to add useful tweaks over Android 9 focusing on system's stability.

Links
All the builds can be found here.
And here's the splash image too.

Guide
Flash the zip via your recovery doing the expected wipes (data, system, cache).

Features
I actually can't list all the additions.
It would be a huge wall of text, that every user would probably not even read.
So, check it out with your own eyes in our gallery and in our blog.

Preloaded applications
This ROM has GApps built-in, tho this may change in next updates.
Also, I'm currently shipping:
-Kiwi browser
-Camera roll
-AmazeFileManager
-Phonograph

Problems
None found till now.

Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?
Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.
Bug reports without logs will be ignored.

1)Gapps included included gapps have no specific type like open gapps but you can assume it as stock as aosp apps are replaced by google apps but still no other bloatware comes (like chrome drive and other google apps)

2)firmware is latest so yea 10.0.7 k

3)ofcurse why not 🤔
