GApps: I recommend using Open GApps. Go to their website: http://opengapps.org. Select ARM64 > Android 7.1 > Variant of your choice (I like micro) and hit that download button.

Instructions:
  1. Grab the ROM zip file. Use the above download link to get it.
  2. Download the GApps package.
  3. Make sure you're on Lineage OS or any other LOS based ROM prior to flashing.
  4. Backup any important data prior to flashing.
  5. Reboot your device to TWRP and perform a full Factory Reset.
  6. Flash the ROM zip file and if you're planning to use GApps, flash them instantly after flashing the zip.
  7. Reboot to system from TWRP and enjoy.

Where are my screenshots?
I know you've never seen a custom ROM :D So I've uploaded some screenshots for you. Just hit the 'Screenshots' tab and enjoy them.

Do Fingerprint swipes work?
Yep. Fingerprint swipes do work but no option has been added within the ROM to customize them (might change in the future or maybe wait for Android O since it will include Fingerprint Swipes API which could mean this feature could be included in stock). Anyways, if you want it to be configurable in the stock Settings just let us know. (You can use Fingerprint Swipes Action from Play Store to customize them)

What about the Smart Key?
Full Smart Key support is present. Download "All-in-One Gestures" from Play Store and assign any action you want to the smart key.

I have some error. How can I be helpful (aside from shouting in the thread thousand times)?
Stay calm. Post your bug/error once, provide logs (essentially dmesg and logcat) and steps to reproduce the problem (if possible). That would be of great help. Remember, you're never ignored.

Exactly the same. The device tree is pretty untouched. However I do plan on making some customizations to setup some extra things but you know time will tell.

Cheers. Just flashed, first booting now. Has booted to setup wizard fine.
I'm assuming no change to the GPS code, so I'll keep it set to battery saving to avoid random reboots.

OK, all good so far, no issues. One quick point for anyone flashing Magisk - v12 asks you do go to play store to install Magisk Manager, and it's not there any more, so download the Magisk manager apk from here... http://tiny.cc/latestmanager

---------- Post added at 10:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:11 AM ----------

Further update. Absolutely no issues. lovely and fast and smooth.
If you're fussy about LED light customisation like me, I reccomend LED Manager - the built-in LED control seems to struggle selecting colours, LED Manager handles it all. (This is the same in all custom ROMS on the H8)
And as will all custom roms, Ambient Display is a bit wishy-washy, too dark, too short... so use LED Manager to force scrren on is good if you're using it, if not, Screen Notifications does the same thing nice and simply and elegantly.

There are some out there that are having trouble with the Lineage and RROS ROM's and TMobile (like I am). I currently "had" the latest Lineage installed and had the TMobile issues with calls in/out not working. I saw this new crDROID ROM so I tried it. Not sure why but now everything works! TMobile included. I tried to install Magisk for root but it didn't work so I installed SuperSU 2.82 and that worked for root too. I am extremely happy to get that cancerous spyware Huawei ROM out of my Honor8.

So, THANK YOU crDROID

Do you mean the calls not working on LTE? On RROS and AOSP ive had to switch to 3G's to make calls. So you can you make calls on LTE with this rom?

    New Release 8/21/2017
    crDroid Android v3.7 - 20170821


    Changelog:
    • Updated crDroid to latest 3.7 version
    • Merged in latest source and trees changes
    • Updated Android Security Patches
    • Updated Carrier Config to disable two APN options when using Verizon Globe
    • Added AOSP FlipFlap

    Notes:
    • FlipFlap is an AOSP Flip Cover app that can work with your default Honor flip cover to show you a nice preview when device is locked (I haven't tested it). Since a real flip cover was not available, I have used estimated values for the screen estate available via flip cover for the app so it might behave unexpectedly. If you have a flip cover, please PM me so that I can use correct values.
    • I am sorry for the huge delay for the release. I was actually disconnected from the internet from the past days on my main building machine rendering me unable to do any builds or look into any bugs. However, I've now migrated to a server so there'll be no such issues in future hopefully.

    Instructions:

    • Improved Camera implementation
    • Update to FRD-L04 B385 blobs for more stability

    • KeyEvent: add support for Smart Key as a keyevent (thanks to @XePeleato for helping me out on this one)

    Special instructions for Smart Key and Fingerprint Swipes:

    • Download "All in One Gestures" app from Play Store
    • Open the App and enable Hard Keys.
    • Click on the 3-dot menu and select Custom Keys.
    • Click the Smart Key. The app will now detect the keypress.
