I am not responsible if flashing this ROM bricks your phone or causes thermonuclear war and ends the world as we know it. You have been warned.

More information about the rom can be found:

same as unofficial LineageOs 15.1

I moved all my repos to gitlab so all repo-urls have changed, the local_manifests-file on github is updated accordingly.
- manifest from BootleggersROM
- my local_manifests pulls in several (slightly) modified repos (e.g.):
- and the (also slightly modified) device-tree:
MarshMallow bootloader is required or you will not be able to boot the rom !
Latest stock firmware is recommended before installing this rom, even if it might work with older versions !
- Use the TWRP from the download-link for your device above (needs to be flashed from existing TWRP, ODIN version might come)
- Download the latest build
- Put it on your device
- Reboot to TWRP
- If you want to be sure wipe the device
- Flash the latest build
- Clean Cache and Dalvik if you want
- Reboot and enjoy
As it's official now, I abandoned my own OTA-app for this Rom.
Easily rootable with the great Magisk (stable) by @topjohnwu.
Exchange2 for Oreo is included and will be installed as system-app (I need this for my work).
I use it as daily driver without major issues.
I use microG as google replacement and for push-services, signature-spoofing is already build into the rom but need to be granted manually (as root):
pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.FAKE_PACKAGE_SIGNATURE
