Hey folks,

Welcome to the goodness of Oreo. This topic will be dedicated to our bring up of Oreo for Nexus 6.

Oreo builds requires testing. Before you flash, there are some special instructions on "how-to":
  1. Take backup of existing apps and data and then reboot to recovery.
  2. Clean install required for this ROM - Wipe data (without wiping userdata), Wipe System, Wipe Cache.
  3. Flash ROM
  4. Flash Magisk 14.0 (for root)
  5. Flash Gapps only from the link below. Gapps installation will not get over due to some Gapps issue. So, when you see "Installation Complete" message on screen, long press power button to reboot.

On first boot, skip login and go straight to home screen. Open Play Store and login.
The first hour of ROM might give you terrible experience as lot of background activity will be on. So suggestion is to update Gapps and leave aside ROM for a while to settle in. Give a reboot and profit.

Beta 2 Release Notes:
  • Fixed compress offload audio for Shamu
  • Fixed BT deep sleep issue for Shamu
  • New shiny blobs from NGI55D for Shamu
  • Kernel security patches till Sept 2017 for Shamu
  • New LED colors for notifications for Shamu
  • Fixed keyboard swype/gesture
  • More longpress-key shortcuts in keyboard
  • Removed crDroidOTA (it's needs more polishing and bring up)
  • Thinner and better Navbar
  • Faster boot than Beta 1
  • Added crDroidSettings placeholder in Settings
  • Optimizations

Beta 1 quick notes:
  • BT, WiFi, NFC, Audio, Video, Brightness, Rotation, GPS, Ambient Display - working.
  • Enabled SysUI Tuner.
  • Added Reboot to Recovery Option.
  • Added 3 color themes - Pixel (default), Nexus, Red under Display.
  • Compress Offload in audio is not working and thereby removed for now.
  • Double tap to wake is not working and thereby removed for now.
  • Sound Trigger blobs removed - not compatible with Oreo as of now. Still, "Ok Google" works - I believe.
  • MotoVR Audio HAL removed - this was by Motorola - it doesn't get loaded on Oreo, not sure what they are for in first place.
  • Loaded with Sigma Kernel 10.0

My setup experience
1) Installed as stated in the OP (minus the skipping setup part)
2) Staying at Google boot logo long enough to make me think there was an issue - maybe 10 seconds.
3) Boot animation was very slow and choppy at first, but then sped up - also make me think there may be an issue.
4) Initial boot took about 15 minutes, then sat at a black screen for about 4 minutes after that. Then the blue setup screen came on.
5) I deviated from skipping setup and put in my info, selected a backup to restore and went through the steps. The setup completed successfully and the backup is now restoring. Going to leave it plugged-in while restoring and doing it's behind the scenes stuff, but so far this ROM is super smooth!

Bottom line - follow the OP and BE PATIENT!

If you use any gapps other than mentioned in OP.. You might get black screen initially. We will need to wait for open gapps to resolve their issues - I don't wish to integrate same in ROM for various reasons.

I'm using the Gapps listed in the OP. The ROM is smooth sailing so far. Looking forward to giving it a more thorough run tomorrow. Thanks for the release!
