Announcement from chevycam94: Stable Oreo build is available!

Welcome to Cortex! This is based on the current Google release. I modeled this after how I have my device set up. This will generally have, as of the time of release, the most current apps available (select apps), Pixel additions, and a lot of speed and system tweaks.

You can now also donate to me by just opening one of my websites pages, and mining Monero cryptocurrency on my behalf! Only things you need to do are disable ad-blocking for my site (so the script will run), leave the tab open, and hit "START MINING". Only uses your computers CPU. It's configurable, too. Number of threads, and speed. I'll work on coloring it better later. Let me know what you think!

One would hope. I'm certain it's CMTE, as I've yet to see a CyanogenMod based layers rom.

Yes, it uses CMTE. No plans to add Layers support at the moment. Still debating that change.
