Any known bugs with this build, guys? FOD working good?
What camera is this ROM using? Can MIUI camera be installed?

Want to say thanks to the Dev team, great work!

This rom is brilliant, I installed it yesterday and haven't encountered any bugs so far. I'm not using magisk so can't comment on that. The FOD works fast with no issues for me and the camera, I think, is URNYX gcam.

Keep up the outstanding work!

Regards
