Hi there! I'm the "One of the two kernel devs" cited above, mainly developing for the LG V20.

To anyone who wants to beta test this rom on the G6: Please read the main post very carefully, and go to the linked thread's post as well. There's lots of crucial info there.

As an example: You can actually brick your phone if you flash it too much. It appears to be an issue with TWRP and SHRP not supporting 12.1 very well, so have a complete backup outside of the phone before venturing in, as the fastest way to recover is by running "fastboot erase system -w" to reformat almost the whole device, then reflashing recovery through fastboot and later restoring data.
This won't work on H872 or any other device with removed fastboot commands. For those I have been using the older root method that involves flashing TWRP to you LAF partition. DO RESEARCH BEFORE TRYING AS YOU CAN IRREVERSIBLY BRICK YOUR PHONE.

- Failing HALs/Services have been removed reducing log spam and improving performance (before (left) and after (right) results are attached to this post)
- Speed adjustments mentioned
here have been merged into the build improving responsiveness
- "Advanced Restart" disabled by default which should help with the Recovery glitch (use the button combo to reboot into recovery)

Does encryption work? Haven't seen it mentioned in either the "what works" and "what doesn't work" sections.

One of 2 things, either it refuses to boot into the reocvery partition or when rebooting out of recovery it fails to boot into system and just keeps rebooting into reovery. Both can be fixed by reflashing the recovery partition in laf TWRP
So this is what I get. It fails to boot into TWRP using hardware buttons combination. Any tutorial to reflashing the recovery partition in laf TWRP?
