been waiting for this. Will check out tonight. I assume you can just wipe and restore an old recovery when we're done playing?

Did all the process with TWRP and never booted up. Might have been a bad download will try it later. One thing I see that one is based on CM. Is it gonna be easy to port like Miui?

Did you wait a min or two? There is no bootanimation after install. The screen goes black and boots into Ubuntu.

Haven't ported a MIUI rom yet. Honestly waiting on v5
