Disclaimer

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.


Some personal thoughts:
- you should read at least install instructions stated in this post - i won`t offer support for any issues regarding installation;
- press 'Thanks' button instead of saying it - it will keep the thread clean and keep me motivated to do more;
- feel free to donate to me if you want to support my work;
- if you take any of my work without my permission i'll report you, and you'll probably get banned.

  • Download the ROM, and transfer to your phone / external SD card if you have encryption active
  • Make sure OEM Unlock is on in developer settings
