    almost everything

    what's broken ?

    Important announcement:

    1. No rebase to V7.0 Oreo because Samsung is so close to push FE Pie update( as it looks on FOTA site)

    2. I won't use the name BlackPearl anymore for PIE roms, The name will be BlackDiamond :) thx to @minerDetails

    3. I understand it's been long time without a rebase,but honestly i don't see a reason to rebase because no visuals changes nor performance will be increased,I want to save the time I'll use to rebase on PIE,Because my Schedule is so tight due to my near exams.

    You can check the status of PIE builds for NFE by using this link :)
