Hello everyone, to start let me tell you a little about myself. I have been on XDA for over 4 years now, and haven't really posted too much. More or less just sat on the side lines to see what developers could create. Now, I'm not much of a developer myself, (know some code) but I am huge into security.
Recently a lot of companies security tactics are being questioned, and since Google is showing little effort to no effector to protect us from the government listening in on our calls and intercepting texts. I've decided to start building a ROM that is not Google based, and preconfigured to work once flashed. This, won't be the typical flash, it'll be a restore through TWRP.
I can build this ROM using any ROM requested, but for the first upload, I'll be using an Omni ROM with ElementalX kernel based ROM. The ROM also includes MicroG services, which has everything but Snapchat working. Including, but no limited to; Google Maps, Hangouts, Play Store, Pokemon Go, all location features, and all Google features. I am also including Xposed Frameworks, with PMP module and Sudo Hide preloaded. Both modules aim to help with privacy.
ll be uploading the link to the build ROM Sunday.
I will not ask for donations, all I ask is for help to build and keep making this better.

Can I ask why Snapchat isn't working?

I believe its a bug in MicroG, I've done some research and a work around I found was to use titanium backup. Backup the data of the app, and then restore it once installing MicroG. I personally haven't tried it.
