One question does this rom support OTA Updates? And if so if i flash the rom now when a new build is available can i dirty flash or everytime i have to wipe first and make a clean install? Cause i am looking for a daily drive nougat ROM and i want to avoid reflashing the ROM all over again.

Thank you in advance.
And thank for bringing this to our old device ?

Yes it does have ota update and when new update comes no need to wipe but you should have the latest TWRP for the ota to work

Hey there, it seems that this rom isn't rooted or am I missing something? I tried rooting with twrps inbuilt rooting system and that didn't work either. What do I have to do?
