I have maybe kind of stupid questions:
Is there any alternative for Secure Folder? Or if there is a way to use it in this ROM?
And what about s-pen functionality? Can I type on black screen like if it's Samsung based ROM?
Is there a port for S-Health? And S-Note? Or heart rate sensor now is useless?
Thx

Due to this being sourced from the lineageos source code, is it presumable to say that another bug (which is present in lineage os) is that wifi direct doesn't work, or is that not the case?

Thanks

P.S. If it is the case anyone using a galaxy watch, you will have battery drain

Did anyone test this rom?

How about the camera? I need a stable camera for daily use.
The camera app is same as of Evolution X 2.4, but you can add GCam port for your device.
Check out this link - https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-8/how-to/how-to-make-custom-rom-smooth-samsung-t4100001

Default Camera app is Stable for Daily.

Is this rom available without gapps built in?

Thanks to the dev
No.
But Can Disable Google Services using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.yourbay.airfrozen&hl=en_IN or using lucky patcher.
AND
If you want to Flash Gapps Separately, then it is possible. It will remove the existing Google Apps and replace it with of Gapps'.
