Same as any ROM.

Do the necessary wipes and flash the ROM.

No wipes are needed between updates from Descendant itself, unless specified.



If you're having problem with SafetyNet, please, install Magisk along the following modules:

SafetyPatcher

Magisk Hide Props.



But please, mind, we won't support any issue arising from Magisk nor relative modules.

Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.

So, head over the Telegram group and feel free to lurk.



Preloaded applications

Google Apps are included along Kiwi Browser and Metro.



Bugs.png


Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?

Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.
