Hello,
Tested ROM RR. (I'm not a specialist)
Location impossible for France, so the menus remain in English for me. Location proposed: USA.
The installation is very fast and for navigation it is much more fluid.
GPS: Ok
The management of the battery seemed to me better.
For the rest of the ROM, it's really better at all points of view.

Hello hyperion70,
This is not a problem, it forces me to do a job on my English ..... and there is work .... I kept the phone in English yesterday and today I am ironed In original ROM. This allowed me to familiarize myself with the intricacies of TWRP and Root and it is very good for the neophyte that I am. I will wait for the new version of RR, thank you for the photos (here and on 4PDA) in any case, this simplifies the understanding.
Good week-end.

Hello, hyperion70, thank you so much for these wonderful roms. They both run very, very well.
Is it possible to activate double tap to wake up off display as in stock rom?
Thank you again

Hello everyone,
Installation with TWRP as recommended by hyperion70.
Installation: no problem
GPS, Wifi, etc ... no problem
Battery: no problem

Question:
1 / Can we make sure that the bottom bar fades and returns when you want? As in the Leagoo ROM.
I found only: displayed / not displayed

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I reply to myself.
Parameters / RR-OS / Interface / Extended Desktop setting ON.
The bar appears when you need it and disappears after a few moments.
Have a good day.

Good evening,

2 problems:
1 / After installation this morning and normal use (for me), the battery is discharged much before (about 20%), I saw that Magisk could pose a problem, I deleted.
I want to know about the result.
2 / Battery charging.
A / Phone on: the screen goes off (1 mn for me) and it continues to charge without worries.
B / Telephone off: the screen darkens, the battery is displayed for the first time (searching), the battery appears a second time and the white bars show the progress of the charging.
The screen seems to go out BUT does not go out completely .... in a dark room you can see a luminous hallo on the whole screen.
I do not have a solution. Am I the only one?
The temperature is normal.
As I do a discharge test this night, no battery charging before tomorrow.

based in the us here. i have an m8 pro.

i've tried the stock freeme os roms, and the 7 nougat rom that's floating around.

the issue i have with the stock rom is freeme os.
it's got a horrendously annoying desktop interface. for example, you cannot just have a blank desktop, you have to keep at least one icon on it or it will disappear.
you can't get rid of the search bar.
cant stack icons on the bottom above the soft buttons. you can, but it's retarded.
that's all i've found so far that i'd rather not live with.

as for 7, the rom i used has this annoying 4g lte boot animation with a ringing noise, seems unnecessary considering after i rooted it and
installed another boot animation all it did was install on top of it and the ringing was still there. so basically, it didn't work.
but worse of all, the soft buttons disappear after a few moments of use, or randomly. the'yre just gone, and you can't get them back.
nobody seems to be talking about it, which i find hard to understand. is it only happening to me?
this is extremely frustrating as 7 was my only hope of getting away from freeme, unless there's a way to uninstall it.
i tried that, but that resulted in being stuck in some super minimal emergency shell, couldn't get it back. even tried reinstalling freeme launcher in play
on my box but that didn't work either.
so i'm back on 6 running twrp & rooted for now, until anything hopefully changes os wise.
i understand the phone is still new and i'm somewhat in no mans land, but i mean it has been out for a little bit now.
anyway, even after all this perhaps the worst problem of all is activating the ****ing thing on a network here.
it's great that we have these phones, but wtf? nowhere is there any information for how to activate them with a sim card nor can i find any 4g carriers that recognize
the imei. basically, wtf is the point of even having it if the aforementioned issues persist?

Hello everyone,
Battery: ROM RR update without Magisk loss of charge in 11:00 (night without doing anything) 48%.
That's a lot and it's not the Magisk program the cause.
ROM Freeme for the same period about 20%.

Try using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.futuremark.pcmark.android.benchmark&hl=en and post the results, if the M8 Pro isn't your daily driver.

Did you check http://willmyphonework.net/, before purchasing?

Try flashing the Lineage or RR rom by Hyperion70 and see how that works.

Hello,
There is obviously a problem, telephone extinguished, the screen does not completely shut down, in 1h30 only 21% more charge. With the ROM 3.05 at the same time I was charging about 45%.
Loading:
Charging:
Telephone On: 20% in 22 mn
Telephone Off: 21% in 1h30
