 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Just a quick tip:

Not even stock NikGApps will flash on this. Gonna need something smaller for use with this - Omni.

Or you could flash the Gapps included build

<usual rant>
I miss the days when you could flash a full Gapps....*sigh*. I dont know why people want to take ever more control away from the user, by taking up system space.
</usual rant>

Update:

NikGapps Omini flashes successfully ...all 390Mb of it....

Its nice once you get in there :)

Update #2: Somehow Samsung Pay detected root on this, while Google Pay and my banking app still worked fine...reverted to PE where all works for the moment (identical setup and Migrate restore), Will retest when i have more time, but i did redo everything on this twice...

Note/update:

Root started being detected on PE now as well, something has changed in the bank apps i use, or for some reason magisk detection is really being ramped up in apps i dont use a lot....

So my earlier post shouldnt stop anyone trying this ROM. My issues are bigger than this ROM :)

don't update your bank app, use one that doesn't detect root, and rename the version of the bank app used in the latest version using the apk editor, or you can use xprivacyLua (module xposed) disable get app on the bank app

None of those things work or are possible sorry, id already tried them or in the case of edXposed etc, caused other issues i wasnt looking for :)

I don't use edxposed, but LSposed (magisk module), maybe you should use XprivacyLua Pro, the bank app I use requires the latest update, and this is a problem with detect root, but I can solve it with apk editor and XprivacyLua
