This is Candy8. Built straight from source with commits from a variety of different Sources/ROMS. We wanted to give the users a fun, fully customizable ROM. We aim to add more features as this project progresses.

Code:
#include <disclaimer.h>
using xdarules std;
/*
 * Your warranty was void as soon as you unlocked your phone.
 *
 * 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.
 */

FEATURES:
.

The ROM is in Alpha stage as of now. The ROM will flash only by using my twrp build or @silesh.nair 's TWRP. Many things are broken with a lot of sepolicy denials. The following things are broken as of now:
1. Video Recorder
2. Flashlight
3. SE Linux

Be patient as the project progresses. Bug reporting should be done in the following fashions:

Changelogs
Changelog Timeline
Major items to be concerned about. Can say the HIGHLIGHTS. Check the commits on my Github for more details.
22 June 18
  • Fix memory leaks when updating stats table
  • Use LZ4 as default compressor/decompressor for ZRAM and ZSWAP
  • Fallback to interactive if governor is not found
  • KSM and zswap : Avoid unnecessary page scanning;check and skip page, if it is already scanned
  • Integrate vnswap from Samsung
  • Disable add_random as it only slows down solid state storages
  • Fix a few thermal sensor related problems
  • Complete removal of gud mobicore driver.
  • LZ4-compressed kernel
  • Apply CFLAGs , -Os to decompress.o to improve decompress performance during boot-up process
  • Tweak mount options for all partitions
  • Various CFQ related patches
  • Drop pagecaches on screen-off
  • Faster vmstat?
  • Toggle for crc check (Keep it disabled by default)
  • Merged all the stuff from Google's Kernel/Common
  • June 05 Security Patch android 8.1 r33 release
  • Add lockscreen clock styles

04 June 18
  • Add app ops
  • Remove Foreground Boost CPUSet
  • Allow disabling quick settings on secure lock screens
  • Tune up ramdisk and reimplement spectrum
  • Fix some memory leaks
  • Use LZ4 as default zRAM compressor


17 May 18

NOTE: All the releases will be 32 bit until and unless I explicitly mention a 64 bit build.

Changelog:
  • Reviver Kernel (formerly known as Babyfish Kernel) has resumed development
  • Disable some wakelocks
  • Fix Audio Control
  • Add TCP congestion avoidance algorithms
  • Add a bit more CPU frequencies than the one on Stock ROM
  • Enable DCache word access
  • Enable Arch Power and provide a toggle
  • CONFIG_HZ set to 300
  • Fix Bluetooth Calling
  • Add sys-fs based Chop Chop Torch Action from OmniROM
  • Add Widewine DRM HAL. (Hopefully fixed Netflix ? )
  • Merge 05 May 18 AOSP Security Patch android_8.1.0_r26
  • Merge a lot of things from candy gerrit. gerrit.bbqdroid.org

What's broken:
  • Camera + Video Recorder (3rd Party Apps working)
  • SE Linux
  • sdcardfs (Didn't have time to merge stuff from AOSP)
  • perfd

Additional Notes:
This build needs a clean flash. Minimum CPU Frequencies maybe messed up, set according to your usage and preference using EX Kernel Manager or Kernel Auditor. @lCrD512 will help me with the ramdisk part. Remember, I am not a battery oriented person; I will rather expect my phone to perform a bit better and not stutter or give frame drops in regular usage. TurboCharge and camera are the only good things left on the phone in 2018, both of which are on the verge of dying.
This is why I am not adding any useless governors or i/o schedulers, neither I am changing clock speeds or dtsi regulator voltages too much. Users have full freedom to modify the kernel settings and fellow developers can modify the source if need be.

If you use GApps, flash MindTheGApps for now. OpenGApps will give Baseband related issues.

VoLTE here and VoLTE over there... It's a damn alpha stage ROM and you expect VoLTE to work? Think that the dev is avoiding cancer for you, having high frequency signals (LTE could be) near your brain can cause cancer, y'know?

PD: RIL is not even working tho
