Ram management is too poor....only 100 MB left in ram ...please help me to fix this
In case you don't know, free Ram in Linux is waste Ram.
So using more Ram for running processes is actually called "optimized".

Android will automatically kill background processes once you start another process from userspace (high priority).

Newer android versions are supposed to be used on newer hardware. This ROM is nougat and is working exactly as it is supposed to, given it has only 2gb Ram.

The most effective solutions :
1) Deal with it
2) Use another older Android version, like marshmallow.

    I guess there is nothing wrong in reading facts!

    -Base Of the ROM & Version?
    ->Rom is based on AOSP

    -Why no "Incremental updates" Support?
    ->Actually the updates we provide monthly are heavily changed and modified than the previous builds. New stuffs are merged and added. So we don't provide incremental updates and recommend clean flash.

    -Does this ROM Support Substratum/CMTE?
    ->Yes, full Substratum support!

    -Which Gapps are recommended?
    ->OpenGapps or

    -Will this ROM relock the bootloader?

    -What about XPOSED?
    ->XPOSED For N is not out yet. Still in development. We like Xposed but it messes up with the system so before giving any bug reports make sure you have xposed uninstalled.

    -When Will Be the Next Update?
    ->No ETAs please. ROM Will be updated whenever the new build is ready. We generally provide monthly updates with latest security patches and new features.

    -I am facing FCs, Bugs, Some feature is broken?

    Releasing AEX Final Nougat build

    Finally, it's time to end AospExtended Nougat's legacy with V4.6. Expect it to be continued O onwards. :)

    • Upstream to latest 05-10-17 Security Tag
    • Fixed 1080p Video Recording and Playback
    • Fixed 720p60 (less jittery playback)
    • Added Gesture support using ConfigPanel Mod (thanks to GSandeep)
    • Fixed Battery Saver Crash (thanks to AKS12) - removed custom powerHAL generated for mt6752
    • RFFilter implemetation & 5 GHz forced Wi-Fi Band.

    For open hotspot - flash this netd-ap0.zip
    For Gestures - flash this gesture-patch.zip

    Downloads: AEX Downloads

    I would like to thank @AKS12 for figuring out solution to several issues. :)

    Edit: For Gesture support use appropriate kernel. Currently Devil Kernel (by Aryan Kedare) got Gesture support, I might be adding to Daredevil-S. Don't post regarding Gestures not working as the kernel included in the ROM is stock with 0-feature addition.

    Did u mean times remaining?

    Only lenovo can make the update????

    ---------- Post added at 04:05 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:05 AM ----------


    Keeping the crap away. It's clear that Lenovo won't release a single update as the device has crossed it's 2 year tenure.
    Don't expect VoLTE support as the OEMs are neither alotted to share modem source codes nor mediatek would release them, unless they are leaked.

    VoLTE requires modem support, more over even if make VoLTE supported modem we won't achieve a proper support of VoLTE on custom ROMs as MTK uses different approach for IMS.

    P.S. Sorry I have been away for a while. It has been already 4 days since release of AEX-4.4. I have gone through a great loss :rolleyes: "My Laptop", so please wait till I recover my stuff and I will release the build in few days. I have already built the ROM but it's crashing on boot. Something related ART has been modified in AEX which I am figuring it out and will release after it is fixed with recent device-specific changes I have shared on other builds.
