As of now, only 32-bit builds will be provided. One of the obvious reasons is that my dev phone is only a 16G/2G device.

I won't argue about the pros and cons for either arch in this thread. If you feel the need for 64-bit, feel free to browse the plethora of 64-bit ROM threads in this forum.

I won't nothing but silently ignore (and eventually report) posts that show proof of being

- silly
- ignorant
- aggressive
- impolite
...

This also goes for posts that are just there due to sheer lazyness of the respective writer instead of having read/searched both this thread and this forum upfront.

If your posts does not fall into either category, but still doesn't get replied, it might have been as well just over looked. But don't count too much on that! :D

Thank you for such a great ROM. I have been using this ROM for the past 3 hours and I can assure that it is really smooth. I also really like the fact that you have kept this at 32bit as I too have a 2GB version of G4 Plus and 64 bit kinda lags on it, plus I see no practical difference between 32 bit and 64 bit here.

I would like to add some features request too :P

1) Please try to remove the 'Device is HD capable' notification and logo, adding a VOLTE logo would be enough, I guess.

2) The navigation bar should me changed to the Oreo one

3) Add an in-built camera, as Footej is not working properly.


Thank you, have a good day.

Hello, what gapps do you recommend for this ROM? I'm not talking about pico, nano etc. I'm talking about the source of the gapps.

Im using xt1621 variant with 2gb RAM.
Latest 64 bits ROMs works smooth, no lag. I mean, I think developer can work with 64 bits without problems.
Just a suggestion
(Im in LOS 15.1 x64 20180203)

Open camera and some other applications do work, Footej doesn't.
