MiXplorer - Root Explorer with Material Design from xda-developer HootanParsa - It is a powerful Explorer, you have just to do three things: In left menue go to Root / and grant Root permissions and in the right menue go to: show hidden files. After go in the left menue to Ext SD and create there a new folder - you must configure MiXplorer now the permissions for external SD - thats all. Now you can do a lot of things.

most of K-Settings are working with the exception of some (which would need Root permissions, like flash recovery) - so only a simular Stock-Rom with some specials
3.) Gratitude-5-Magisk-Edition2: The same KangV-Rom but with systemless Root
Magisk v9 from xda-developer topjohnwu preinstalled and prerooted with phh superuser - special thanks to @topjohnwu!
Note: After first setup please install latest Magisk Manager Download: http://tiny.cc/latestmanager This is the only App which cannot be included - because of special code cache - it must be installed by the user! Soon as you have installed this Manager - superuser ask you - grant Root Permission to Magisk and grant Permission for MM in the next window. After you will see Magisk is correctly installed.
Go to settings /module - phh´s SuperUser is installed, go to settings /Downloads: From MagiskManager you can install:
Sonys Framework and systemless Xposed Framework 87 and Pixel Launcher (for activation or deactivation Pixel Launcher go after installing to Settings /Apps / Advanced /Standard-App Settings)
Material Design Xposed Installer is onboard from xda-developer: DVDandroid - but dont install the framework from here, install it from MagiskManager.
As soon you have it installed, you can open the Material Design Xposed Installer - systemless Xposed Framework is active. With this installer (is included in the Rom) you can download and manage your modules. - special thanks to @DVDandroid!
Important tip: If you want to restore a Nandroid Backup of a none Magisk-Version (Gratitude 4.1, Gratitude 5 Classic Edition) - you must do following steps before:
be sure to uninstall phh Superuser first - flash unsu.zip (Download: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=63615067 )and directly after flash Magisk-uninstall.zip (Download: http://tiny.cc/latestuninstaller)
If you have done this two steps you can restore a Nandroid Backup of another Rom. If you dont do this steps, the restoring will not be without faults.

Clean Installation with Fullwipe is recommended (Backup your data, boot to TWRP, go to Wipe /Advanced Wipe and format Dalvik/ART Cache, Cache, System and Data - NOT the Internal Memory)
Dirty Flash is possible:
backup your converted System-Apps first (System will be formated during flashing) and wipe immediately after installation BEFORE Reboot Dalvik and Cache (TWRP left next to Reboot-Button)
The Installation needs about 2 Minutes, the Reboot needs about 10 Minutes (clean install) and with dirty flashing the Reboot needs about 15 Minutes
To switch of chinese Letters - go to K-Settings, in there to Notification Settings/Show statusbar lunar - disable it. After to Lockscreen und desktop settings/Lunar calender + Desktop wheather lunar - disable it.
The Push-Notifications are working for sms, mms, email.... But for WhatsApp, Viber, Skype and other Chat/Net-Call Apps the push-notifications work only perfectly if you convert them into a system app. You can easily do this with Link2SD. Link2SD give you a list of all Apps - for example "WhatsApp" - just press long on it and you get a menue - use: convert to system-app. Then reboot your Phone. After you have to authentication WhatsApp again - so make a Google-Drive Backup of the Chat-History before doing this.
