Tags:
To avoid confusion with the OFFICIAL CyanogenMod build tags that include Nightly/Developement (every 24 hours, experimental, newest features, unstable) and Snapshot/Release (every 1-2 months, suitable for daily use, devices signed-off by maintainers for inclusion), these UNOFFICIAL builds have three tags:
  • STABLE: include tested changes and confirmed bug fixes;
    are suitable for daily use.
  • TESTING: include experimental changes to be evaluated and to possibly fix some issues;
    may be used as daily driver only if they don't break functionality or introduce new issues.
  • VZW-ONLY: same as TESTING builds, but support Verizon variant (VZW SM-N910V) only.

Changelog:
For the latest changes and bug fixes, check the 2nd post!

Status:
This ROM supports all Snapdragon variants, especially US variants (Verizon / VZW SM-N910V, T-Mobile/TMO SM-N910T, Sprint / SPR SM-N910P, and US Cellular / USC SM-N910R4) and Canadian variant (SM-N910W8). This is only possible because I made major changes to the kernel, init, and frameworks/telephony overlays. Moreoever, the vendor proprietary blobs for VZW variant support both CDMA and GSM networks. So, the device name/model and related properties will reflect the VZW base/blobs.

Check the ROM status in the 3rd post!

Kernel:
For stability, this ROM uses ~pure Samsung source code for the kernel with carefully cherry-picked commits from CAF MSM 3.10 source code for APQ8084. A few patches are merged to implement some CMHW features. Moreover, driver updates are integrated from the latest Samsung releases.

I'm also contributing to this kernel repo that will be shipped in some builds for extra features.

instructions:
  • Hit THANKS
  • Make backup
  • Do a full factory reset
    You should wipe the system partition!
  • Flash ROM + Gapps ARM 7.1
    Gapps nano package is recommended!
  • Enjoy!
Only for international variants (SM-N910F/G):
>>> Flash RIL/QMI fix from the 3rd post, before flashing Gapps.

Notes:
  • Clean flash (wipe system/data/cache/dalvik) is required.
  • You need to install nano Gapps for ARM SDK 25 (Android 7.1.1 Nougat) .
  • You may also need to set default Apps and grant special access/permissions.
    In Settings/Apps, click the Settings icon and select "Show system" from the 3-dot menu, as needed.
  • Make sure that your preferred APNs are selected in Settings/Cellular networks.

Downloads:

Support:
A voluntary work consumes resources and more importantly time!

If you'd like to support the development, you may donate here:
  • It's fine to just click THANKS or enjoy without saying anything.
  • A donation is to show appreciation of the work I have done already.
  • A donation is not by any means in expectation of future work.
  • A donation doesn't entitle for preferred/private support/requests.
  • A donation is meant as a gift - always appreciated, never required.

If you couldn't donate, you can hit THANKS :good:​

ROM Status

Release Date:
No ETA, but you could vote for a newer build by hitting THANKS to the announcement post of the latest build.

END OF DEVELOPMENT


Supported Variants:
This ROM fully support US variants:
  • Verizon / VZW (SM-N910V)
  • T-Mobile / TMO (SM-N910T)
  • Sprint / SPR (SM-N910P)
  • US Cellular / USC (SM-N910R4)
and
  • Canadian variant (SM-N910W8)
International Snapdragon variants (SM-N910F and SM-N910G) need RIL/QMI fix. This can be done by flashing blobs from the latest firmware (cm-14.1-trltexx-fix_v3.zip) before flashing Gapps.


Nandroid Backup/Restore:
To fix nandroid restores (No SIM and Phone FCs) due to TelephonyProvider data/symlinks for using legacy RIL blobs on newer versions of Android 7.x+, you may wipe TelephonyProvider data by flashing this ZIP directly after restore and before rebooting to system.


Required Firmware:
The latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware is required for all variants. Check your device/variant forum for firmware upgrade!

VZW-ONLY:
ROM Firmware Required: N910VVRU2CPJ2

If you're already on unlocked Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow bootloader, you can extract and flash the DevEd partial fimware via Odin to upgrade:

This will upgrade the base firmware (NON-HLOS, modem, rpm, sbl1, sdi, and tz) to N910VVRU2CPJ2.


Bug Reports:
All bug reports should be posted here. I'll ignore the posts that don't include appropriate logs. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to respond to the PMs.


Q&A:
There's a linked thread for Q&A, general discussions, and pre-/post-installation chat. Please keep this thread clean and post there all your personal issues that are not related to the development such as Xposed, themes, extra mods, other stuff, ... etc.

This thread is only for development, including bug reports with logs. All other topics should be moved to the new thread.

Thank you for collaboration! That's how users could contribute to the development.

I've looked quite a bit and can't seem to find anything on a safe upgrade to CPG2. Do you happen to know where I could find any info on that? Thanks

Thanks hsbadr! And I also want to say thank you for your continued support on our phones. So after I flash this it would be ok to restore my other marshmallow roms and vise versa? Didn't know since this is Nougat. Really appreciate your time and help.

@hsbadr, amazing job on the build sir! Everything seems to be running smoothly, first boot took about 10 minutes, and after that I breezed through the setup. Found that the old trick of quickly running your finger over the fingerprint sensor to set up prints worked beautifully. Going to try flashing Xposed here in a bit. I will report any and all FC's, or issues, while also running @chevyrhoads Note 7 port. Thank you!

Well there's Dual Boot Patcher. If it works with that, I could try it out of without breaking CM13.

Ohhh, I misunderstood. I thought you were asking about the Nougat seamless updates thing, and how some had been speculating that the dual-partitioning could be repurposed by developers for a dual-boot paradigm.

I'm pretty sure Xposed doesn't work on Nougat http://www.xda-developers.com/rovo89-updates-on-current-status-of-xposed-for-android-nougat/

    Tags:
    To avoid confusion with the OFFICIAL CyanogenMod build tags that include Nightly/Developement (every 24 hours, experimental, newest features, unstable) and Snapshot/Release (every 1-2 months, suitable for daily use, devices signed-off by maintainers for inclusion), these UNOFFICIAL builds have three tags:
    • STABLE: include tested changes and confirmed bug fixes;
      are suitable for daily use.
    • TESTING: include experimental changes to be evaluated and to possibly fix some issues;
      may be used as daily driver only if they don't break functionality or introduce new issues.
    • VZW-ONLY: same as TESTING builds, but support Verizon variant (VZW SM-N910V) only.

    Changelog:
    For the latest changes and bug fixes, check the 2nd post!

    Status:
    This ROM supports all Snapdragon variants, especially US variants (Verizon / VZW SM-N910V, T-Mobile/TMO SM-N910T, Sprint / SPR SM-N910P, and US Cellular / USC SM-N910R4) and Canadian variant (SM-N910W8). This is only possible because I made major changes to the kernel, init, and frameworks/telephony overlays. Moreoever, the vendor proprietary blobs for VZW variant support both CDMA and GSM networks. So, the device name/model and related properties will reflect the VZW base/blobs.

    Check the ROM status in the 3rd post!

    Kernel:
    For stability, this ROM uses ~pure Samsung source code for the kernel with carefully cherry-picked commits from CAF MSM 3.10 source code for APQ8084. A few patches are merged to implement some CMHW features. Moreover, driver updates are integrated from the latest Samsung releases.

    I'm also contributing to this kernel repo that will be shipped in some builds for extra features.

    ROM Status

    Release Date:
    No ETA, but you could vote for a newer build by hitting THANKS to the announcement post of the latest build.

    END OF DEVELOPMENT


    Supported Variants:
    This ROM fully support US variants:
    • Verizon / VZW (SM-N910V)
    • T-Mobile / TMO (SM-N910T)
    • Sprint / SPR (SM-N910P)
    • US Cellular / USC (SM-N910R4)
    and
    • Canadian variant (SM-N910W8)
    International Snapdragon variants (SM-N910F and SM-N910G) need RIL/QMI fix. This can be done by flashing blobs from the latest firmware (cm-14.1-trltexx-fix_v3.zip) before flashing Gapps.


    Nandroid Backup/Restore:
    To fix nandroid restores (No SIM and Phone FCs) due to TelephonyProvider data/symlinks for using legacy RIL blobs on newer versions of Android 7.x+, you may wipe TelephonyProvider data by flashing this ZIP directly after restore and before rebooting to system.


    Required Firmware:
    The latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware is required for all variants. Check your device/variant forum for firmware upgrade!

    VZW-ONLY:
    ROM Firmware Required: N910VVRU2CPJ2

    If you're already on unlocked Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow bootloader, you can extract and flash the DevEd partial fimware via Odin to upgrade:

    This will upgrade the base firmware (NON-HLOS, modem, rpm, sbl1, sdi, and tz) to N910VVRU2CPJ2.


    Bug Reports:
    All bug reports should be posted here. I'll ignore the posts that don't include appropriate logs. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to respond to the PMs.


    Q&A:
    There's a linked thread for Q&A, general discussions, and pre-/post-installation chat. Please keep this thread clean and post there all your personal issues that are not related to the development such as Xposed, themes, extra mods, other stuff, ... etc.

    This thread is only for development, including bug reports with logs. All other topics should be moved to the new thread.
