Thanks for the ROM. It's smoother than most of the other ROMs I tried. I can't install Instagram for some reason, it says its not compatible on the play store. Apk for it works fine though.

What are the features of the ROM?

Best ROM! :)
Only issue is NFC

I will look into fixing that in my next build.

New build is up! Should have taken care of the NFC issue.

I don't see the new build. Still shows Oct. 11th upload date. And all mirrors show the 20181010 build?
I prob won't flash it since I don't use NFC. And EVERYTHING is working perfectly! :cool:

My cell data works amazingly with this ROM! I can send MMS in seconds. And it shows LTE on the signal bar. Haven't seen that in while.
It was horrible on pie. I missed an important text yesterday on pie. That was the last straw!
I am on Tello which uses Sprint.
