Minimal F.A.Q

Q: After ROM boot up, I'm getting SetUP wizard errors / other Gapps FC / Black screen on first boot, why ?
A: On marshmallow based Roms, you need to flash ROM and gapps at the same time
TWRP even allows you to flash multiple .zip files

Q: Why no Mediatek Engineering Menu?
A: Its Mediatek proprietary, ugly , not needed on our builds.
Relevant features used on Mediatek E. Menu have been ported to our builds already using aosp / our implementations ( Sensors calibration , Band Mode, etc)

Q: App "x" is not working, why?
A: First make sure the app works under Marshmallow

Q: Something wrong with my Bluetooth, can't connect /pair with my "x" device , car-BT
A: Bluetooth should be backwards compatible , some OEMs don't also follow some guidelines , surely can be improved.
Post your BT model, Car model and year to help us out determining compatibility issues

Yes, I'm using stock prebuilt kernel on doogee. But it's a MM (3.18) kernel and the device tree is made for the MM kernel. You can still use it as base but you also need to do changes.

sir, I am pretty much sure about changing blobs and ramdisk. But I am concerned about sepolicy changes. do I need to update those as well? this device tree don't have mediatekril we used to use for kk and lp kernel. So, how can we mtk ril?

Could you. rom update:
- The camera only 13 Mpx without SlowMotion.
- The notification light stops working.
- It does not work well in 4G mode.
- You can not change the internal memory to SD.
- Waking up the screen with fingerprint is not possible.

It would be great !!!

@fire855, thanx for the ROM. Works much better than stock. Just one question - is it possible to make LED notification work? (talking about Vowney Lite).
Agree with llopbal
1. The camera only 13 Mpx instead of 21 Mpx
2. The notification light stops working. This's very sad.
others problems not so important.

BR, akadimka

First of all, thanks for that great ROM! We really need it.

Question... If I backup my current /system/lib/hw/camera.mt6795.so and /system/lib/hw/libcam* and replace it on the new ROM, would the camera work on full resolution (21.5MP)? What else should I do?

I'd like to add camera specs if it's any help:

Back/Primary: imx230mipiraw (21.5 MP Sensor Sony IMX 230 Exmor RS)
Front/Secondary: ov8858mipiraw

Thanks again!

1. Slow motion is a proprietary feature from mtk. I will look into the mpx issue. Very busy currently.
2. Can someone try to replace lights.mt6795.so with the stock lights blob?
3. What doesn't work well with 4G?
4. You can use your sdcard as second internal storage. But you can't switch your internal storage and sdcard.
5. I missed to add off screen detection. I will look into it.

@fire855 / The MAD Team

- On 4G, maybe there was not enough coverage in my test.
- The LED notification is not important at this time.
- So will remain pending update:
- The camera 21 MPX
- Add the detection screen with fingerprint.

* Again thanks for a nice job !!!

:good:

    This is no support thread for other devices and platforms
    And surely NOT a porting q&a thread.

    Thanks
