Excuse me dr..i use this rom for a couple of days the first 3 days it going fine and stabel but after 4 days my phone become hot even i not use the phone and so the battery going down so fast...and tips or there's anything wrong?
Flashed Dr. Ketan's on N920C. The intention was to make it the music player for my car with ARISE Audio Mod (Ver Magnum Opus) . Found out it has enforcing Kernel hence Audio Mods did not work.
So had to resort to Fuel V7 Kernel - after which I was able to install ARISE without any trouble (The Mods which I use or have found to be working without any trouble are VIPER4Andrdoid, DolbyAtoms, ICESound, A3MD)
Thanks to all the developers and engineers who have made this possible with their dedication and hours of work.

Camera Switch N5/S8 (read below for details)
S8 Camera and Bixby vision
First of all Thanks to @khongloi113 for his one remark which lead me to enable this option otherwise I have ignored after initial trial.
Just to note that I have not deeply tested S8 camera but made very little work to include it as an option to test Bixby vision if someone wanted to test it.
Some mods may not work correctly or may be missing. I can't promise about updating of S8 camera in future. Usually I am not in favor of porting stuff related to hardware to keep port as much bug free so I have made N5 camera default and should work without single glitch like stock ROM.
But anyway, as said earlier there is a switch in ROM Tool to switch between camera anytime with single click.
AOD (Always On Display)
Firstly, I recommend to make a Nandroid backup, in case you want to revert back if you no more wanted to use AOD.
Same as on previous version, ROM is AOD compatible but you need a AOD supported kernel.
Before flashing Enabling AOD, remember that this feature isn't natively available but ported via mainly Kernel with many limitations of hardwares. Don't expect same performance like it available natively. Specially for battery drain. It's not a ROM issue nor a Kernel but simply hardware limitations.
Kindly don't Spam/Troll/Bug any of threads for same. Either live with same or Don't use it.
1.Install AOD Kernel by Khangloi113 from here Thanks and credit to @khongloi113 Thanks and Credit to @khongloi113 for AOD kernel Here is Original Link and Source for Kernel
2.Select SuperSU option when asked in Kernel aroma
3.Reboot device and wait till you see a toast message 'Busybox installed' If you don't see this msg then open ROM Tool and check header for busybox status
If it shows version of busybox installed then it's done, otherwise you will see a option there to install busybox.
4.After installing busybox - reboot once again
