Anyone tried 14/09 build.... Device is getting boot?? ...Thanks

cm-14.0-20160913-UNOFFICIAL-athene.zip from 2016/09/14 is no good. The file is incomplete (174.4MB) compared to the previous ones that were over 350MB in size. AndroidFileHost even says at the top of the screen "SYSTEM NOTICE: Devs: If you run into issues with uploading via the web uploader please contact us for FTP information. We are actively working on a more reliable web based uploader and will launch it soon." so most likely the upload did not complete.

Probably Nougat is too much a challenge for now! Remember: all developers are volunteers! They try something, get their hopes up, but then it gets hard... Starting and making a workable build is one thing. Maintaining it is another. It takes a lot of time, effort and spirit! Remember: the developers don't get payed for it. So patience is the keyword. And yes, sometimes a project is abandoned. Nothing you can do about it, except taking up development yourself! Who dares? I don't...

    OK, so I'm building nougat based on CAF sources that have launched yesterday CyanogenMod 14.
    I need help of some developers and testers so that i'll be able to boot it successfully.
    Need testers!
    I have worked on many such projects. I had been the first one for booting marshmallow on my oneplus2 too.

    Current status:
    Building cm14, bootloops.
    @vache has taken over making cm14
    Given the device, I would have proceeded but I do not have enough time to work on it now lol

    Local manifests are here: https://github.com/regalstreak/local_manifests/tree/athene

    Device tree can be found here: https://github.com/regalstreak/android_device_motorola_athene

    Help and testers needed. Mentions to devs appreciated.

    Edit 4: Updated Telegram Testers group link is: https://telegram.me/joinchat/BVYC_T_4T4Zcy9beFvZcdQ

    Edit 3: Made a Telegram Testers group. https://telegram.me/joinchat/BVYC_QnCC_nXPYQsevwlLw

    Edit 2: Sorry for the delay, had had a finger hairline fracture while goalkeeping. I had switched to making cm14 as a new ROM seemed meaningless as I'm already going to bring halogenOS here.

    Edit: Head over to github.com/Nougat-Athene which is the organisation. Just ask for invitation if you'd like to help :D

    Note: This is strictly a development thread for nougat development for the Moto G4 Plus. If you want to spam this thread please do not comment!
    Update: steady progress going on. Max 3 days for a cm14 build.
    Would be up tomorrow if compiler is on my side.

    When u will release this..any estimate time..?
    Builds can be built. Just have skme issues. I'll fix them when I get back home. First build will be till Friday night. So be prepared!
    I could have done today itself but had my birthday so had to go out for dinner as well as lunch.
    PS: do not spam the thread with wishes xD pm them if you wanna.
    You can call it a full fledged nougat rom based on caf specifically for moto g4 plus. Hence it is taking some time. I'll add some useful features too when it boots!

    Update: The rom was a bad idea as it is very early to work on a rom like that. We don't even have the kernel source by motorola. So I'm compiling cm14 and making steady progress. We devs are contributing to cm too in the process.
