Performance is meh, but ofc it's beta so no worries, apps work, UI is a bit laggy, but other than that it's fine but not as a daily driver yet.

Fantastic and everything working very well, but I have had two problems, the slide mode on keyboard aosp does not smoke and the application is restarted and in the off menu when you press the power button the phone restarts and does not turn off. Thank you!!!!

First 10-20 Minutes I'd thought I'd installed a crap rom as it was restarting and lagging but after a couple of restarts and browsed round the UI It seems to be stable but a bit laggy. I'm gonna use this as a daily driver for the first time ever as it's alright but I'll see how it goes. I can confirm Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify and Instagram all work with no problem (I don't have root). Will love to see how this goes. Will you release updates through software update?
Mobile data, 4G LTE, WIFI And all the sensors appear to be functioning too! I'm not sure if it's fast charging but it's doing it fairly quickly and the battery isn't getting hot and the screen on time isn't bad for a very early rom.

Only thing that is a bit annoying is that the button lights are always on and there is no way to turn it off or set a timer when to turn the button lights off. Also, the navigation bar (disable hardware back/home buttons) doesn't work.

Also: changing design doesn't work, upload/download stats in notification bar doesn't work, changing clock position also doesn't work

Hi Ivan,
The rom is really amazing and i'm keeping it as my daily driver. Just can't turn off backlight buttons and the sys floder cannot be edited.
Good job Ivan, you did it
Keep up the good work

It's because those are los features. Op states that many los features are not yet complete for Pie.

    New build is up, making this a first exynos device to have working hwc on aosp pie. build has been tested against previous hwc issues which were present last time it was enabled and such issues werent present in this build,

    Also gotta say im really dissapointed at this comunity at this point, Some of you clearly dont understand i do this in my free time which i might not have sometimes due to work and other stuff i have to deal with in personal life and i do this for free just to help comunity (Hell i even cover server cost), so you cant demand anything i said i would post build when i get time which is right now, and worst of all im only person working on this device so if i wasnt working there wouldnt be aosp pie or oreo for that matter so if any of you feel like complaining again you can just go and use any other rom from here

    anyway here is an short changelog
    12.05.2019.
    - Fixed HWC
    - Updated kernel to 3.18.139
    - Updated vendor security patch to match (Latest at the moment samsung decided to drop support for monthly patches on s7 so they update it every 3 months now, we dont use a lot of blobs from stock anyway so this is non issue)
    - Updated system security patch to may
    - Enabled quota support on /data (Make sure you are on latest twrp)
    - Misc performance and stability improvements
    - Synced with LOS source

    So a progress update on Q, I have booting build i got done earlier today but i want to finish up few things before posting it, as for lack updates i got sick of this comunity as some group of users are really disrespectful and well being only person that worked on aosp while others just take work and do it for profit while i spend time and money on build server expensses and reverse engineering stuff and stuff just didnt sit fine for me (I cant really build on other peoples servers either as i have parts of bsp source that is private and i dont want to leak as i could get in legal trouble, and thats the reason why rom has fully working hwc amongst other things) As for surprise i decided to postpone it until i release q because it would be picked by others minute i post it anyway

    And well thanks to everyone who donated earlier as i do this non profit (Unlike some projects on these forums) in my free time and those donations help offset server cost a bit, ill try to post q builds in a coming week

    Here is another progress update
    I've updated graphics stack to use samsungs mali drivers provided with oreo (R22P0)
    This means device is now fully using oreo blobs which should improve stability performance battery life and security in general
    this should also help resolve some issues on pie builds (Like that black screen and camera issues)
    While device does perform better with new blosb it managed to break camera and Hardware encoding/decoding so i need to look into that before
    next release, as im doing this in my free time im not sure how long will it take till i have enough time to figure this out completely
    but hopefully shouldnt be too long, also on a positive note HWC is working even with new blobs so there shouldnt be any degradation once camera and hw encoding/decoding are working with new blobs
    this could also mean camera quality could improve a bit but that is yet to be seen
