Opal Travel app from google play

I have this installed, I really need to be able to use it often but when I boot it, it tells me it's not available for use on "rooted" phones do to security reasons, I've tried flashing xposed framework with rootcloak, can't get the app to run. I've tried to uninstall superuser/su and unroot the phone but it still seems to believe that the phone is rooted. How do you properly remove root from this ROM?

I believe there are some su files in system/xbin and system/bin folder that need to be deleted.

If not, you can switch to android marshmallow ROMs and use systemless SuperSU and suhide or phh superuser and phh hidesu.

Just got my s4, it looks like a great rom, so it'll be the first one I flash.

Is there anyway to get Touchwiz on this rom, and get Android Pay working?

TouchWiz is only for Samsung ROMs.
The closest you will get to TouchWiz with this ROM is a TouchWiz theme, but don't expect TouchWiz functionality.

As far as Android Pay is concerned, you may be able to get it to work, but the whole process isn't worth it.
It requires several modifications, possibly trial and error, and in the end it won't even last long, because Google will release a patch and make everything you've done pretty much useless.
So you better stick to credit cards or an unrooted phone if you really need Android Pay.

Hey guys so recently my phone just got stuck and when i restarted it after removing and putting the battery back in, i found that the efs folder had gotten corrupted. Can someone provide me with a backup of their efs please?
Use this app to backup ur efs.
Personal message me so I can provide u with my email address
Thanks in advance
This would give you my IMEI and this is (sort of) forbidden. You need a backup of your IMEI. If you don't have one, I can't help you. Sorry for this

My wifi is working but i am not able to make calls
I get not registered on network error
I get an imei number when i dial *#06#

Hi, I've been using this ROM without much issues for the past two years. Now I'm back in France with the Carrier Free Mobile.
They have a large network of wifi hotspots with the name FreeWifi_secure.
The authentification works with the SIM card.
Connect > EAP method > EAP SIM

But I can't find this authentification method ??
I have only PEAP / TLD/ TTLS / PWD

What can I do ?

Thank you for your help.

    Video reviews

    Thanks to @ISF

    This is the review of some earlier builds, didn't have time to edit it sooner.

    Thanks to @LMH1998

    Thanks to @nadejo

    I see people still complaining about the 20/12 build. I already apologized for that, sometimes may happen that something doesn't work well, especially when there are a lot of updates to do in a little time. Probably who complains doesn't know what the dev life is, at this point I'll not share anymore my updates. Come on little men, build this ROM without me!!!!!!!! Write and test the code, build, test, fix bugs, rebuild, come on!!!! I really want to see you in my place.

    I'm doing all this FOR FREE, I don't ask for payment, I don't ask for donations, I don't ask ANYTHING!!

    So, why instead of supporting me you complain?

    There's who supports me by donating a beer, a six-pack of beer, a coffee, a pack of cigarettes, 4 six-pack of beer... And who supports me by reporting bugs, giving logs, even with a "Thank you". You don't know how much I appreciate all this, thank you everyone

    We are humans, we know that if we can monetize even a little from our own work is always better and keeps us in good spirits, to make our work always better and better. But I will never ask a single cent, the choice to donate or not is exclusively yours

    To the noobs, complainers, haters: immediately stop and go away if your intention is to be against me. There are 2 other CM12 ROMs (even if they don't have all the tweaks inside here), use them.

    Me and you are IDENTICAL, and since I'm a developer this doesn't mean that I'm a robot or that my life is based on staying all the days (every morning, afternoon and night) in front of a monitor, keyboard and mouse. As other people including you I'm a normal guy, 21 years old. I have my personal life beside the dev life: family, friends, work, saturday night at the disco... I'm young and I want to live my life

    Now, I kindly ask you to stop swearing in this thread, it's a public place...

    EDIT: oh, almost forgot, I deserve holidays too!

    Thank you for everything and have a nice Christmas,

    Mattia D'Alleva
