MarshMallow bootloader is required or you will not be able to boot the rom !
Latest stock firmware is recommended before installing this rom, even if it might work with older versions !
- Use the TWRP from the download-link for your device above (needs to be flashed from existing TWRP, ODIN version might come)
- Download the latest build
- Put it on your device
- Reboot to TWRP
- If you want to be sure wipe the device
- Flash the latest build
- Clean Cache and Dalvik if you want
- Reboot and enjoy
Easily rootable with the great Magisk (stable) by @topjohnwu.
I use it as daily driver without major issues.
I use microG as google replacement and for push-services, signature-spoofing is already build into the rom but need to be enabled in "Settings -> Bootleg dumpster -> Miscellaneous" and granted in "Settings -> apps" and/or in microG-Settings.
