The HydROM is going to become a series of ROMs for different devices. My goal is to make it as stock looking and stable as possible and add what the user wants. No bloatware, No carrier stuff, and the least number of bugs....
2- DO NOT REPORT ANY BUGS, If you have modded the system in any way(including xposed).
3- BATTERY life gets better over time and may be awful in the begining.
If you need extra juice, try Greenify's aggressive doze.4- If you have found a fix to any of the bugs, please share them with everyone here in the thread.
5- PLEASE USE THE SEARCH BUTTON BEFORE ASKING.
6- Respect other users, and help out as much as you can.
7- Please don't redflag yourself, do not spam, do not ask for etas, do not ask about bugs already mentioned, or I will ignore you.
YOU CAN NOT USE MY ROM OR MY TWEAKS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, KINDLY RESPECT THE WORK OF OTHERS8- Kindly do not ask for ETAs. If you would like a feature added, please post it in the Feature requests above!
IF YOU SPAM, I WILL REPORT YOU WITHOUT ANY WARNINGS AND IF YOU SPAM THE THREAD TOO MUCH, YOU WILL BE INFRACTED BY THE MODERATION TEAM

- Why does it bootloop?
Because you flashed a mod, or custom kernel. Only the kernel packed with the rom is supported.
- Why is there no ROM CONTROL?
Because 1-I don't have that much time,2-The HydROM is about STOCK feeling.
- How to I change the dpi?
Go to Settings>Display>Display Scaling - Large is 640(Note 4's original DPI), Small is (560, Note5's dpi)
- What is another fast yet secure way to unlock besides fingerprint?
For now, you can enable Trusted face in Smart Lock in settings, when it recognizes your face, it doesn't require a pin or password.
- The phone heats up a lot, why?
This is a common issue some users reported since MM, try to factory reset, flash the latest bootloader and modem, do not restore anything using TB or Helium.
- Not all themes are available, why?
Well, some themes still do not support Graceux since it's not official.
- Why isn't Magnify or AirMagnify available
It was causing crashes and reboots, so for now, it's not available. Hopefully, if I have enough time, I'll fix it.
NOTE THAT YOU HAVE TO FLASH EITHER ONE OF THE KERNELS IN DOWNLOAD LINKS SECTION AFTER THE ROM AND NO OTHER KERNELS OR THE ROM WON'T BOOT!
