Tried to flash the ROM following the instructions. IT"S DO NOT WORK.

I was on OOS11 latest. Tried to boot using the given YAAP recovery, it simply reboot my device.
So, I downgraded the to OOS10, and tried the same, its bricked my phone. Stuck on "Qualcomm Crash Dump Mode".

Very bad experience.

to boot yaap recovery you need to flash it first with fastboot flash boot boot.img(name of recovery), then select reboot to recovery option with volume button and when reboot to recovery option comes press power button and you will booted to yaap recovery

When I was on OOS11, I bot the YAAP recovery. It simply reboot my phone. Then when I went to recovery from OS, OOS recovery booted.

First of all thanks for creating/maintaining this ROM.

I recently installed it on my phone and overall first impression is excellent. It's quite smooth and I love the UI.

The fingerprint is much more accurate than any other rom I tried.

Regarding Widevine, you mentioned

- Fixed: Widevine L1 (You should have L1 on OOS)

I had L1 on OOS, but after flashing this I'm on L3, I tried flashing latest stable OOS 11 using provided TWRP on both slots before I flashed this. are there any additional steps which I am missing?

Also, I still see GCam Go in you latest build, are there any plans to add OOS Cam?
