Thanks for the oreo, you had fixed camera bug, network switching bug, file system bug. But got some problems. gps works fine but if gps is on while data network is on, which causes a reset for both sims, leads to frequent disconnection and unstable network ( when ever any app request for location). second the brightness is very low in front camera video recording mode, you can see clear differnce if you switch to photo mode. Also camera got stuck while recording videos in instagram, it's deadlock only force quit intagram is the only option to make camera work again. Please fix these asap

To avoid the ril crash with GPS, you/one needs to delete system/vendor/bin/mtk_agpsd.
You need to be rooted for this...

Thanks that works but after reboot network dropped two time but recovered instantly. Please also check - if one sim's signal gone it resets and scans for network but i think it resets the second SIM for no reason even if it has full signal.

Network is going to be much better in next release, independent from the GPS bug.

YouTube app freezes

The ROM is good. However, YouTube freezes after sometime and the phone just hangs. Need to force reboot somehow in order to solve this issue. YouTube is practically unusable now. Please look into this issue.

Do I expect volte support in future update of this rom?
If you expect anything in future then wait for it in the future itself! Present generation can't think or predict about the future.
I'd say stay happy with what you have right now at this very moment. Coolpad got oreo being a mtk device is in itself a nice thing, hardly a bunch of mtk devices have development support.

With regards

Some bugs I found

- Phone freezes after some time while in fullscreen on YouTube.

- Hide quick settings on secure lockscreen not working.

Some feature requests

- Immersive mode quick tile.

- Stay awake quick tile.

- 180° rotation support.

Some features which I think are not right

- All the info in status bar (clock, battery) are a little off the edge of screen. Don't know why but, it makes the notification icons overlap.

Some questions I have

- What is MAD mode?

- I am a heavy android user who does HD gaming and browsing all day. Are the kernel settings optimised for that kind of use or should I tweak them to squeeze more battery?

Not able to add call... if I touch add call it mutes instead. Also if I get a second call my phone it just gives me the beep sound of second call and doesn't wake the screen. I have to wake it and see whose calling and if I answer it by swiping upward the call is received but the screen continues to show incoming call receive screen. Phone basically hangs into that incoming call receive screen. I have to do a soft reboot to come out of it.

    Hi! I've recently installed the oreo update on my coolpad note 3 lite. I'm trying to install SuperSu. But it's not working. I've tried supersu version 2.82 and 2.79 but none of this worked. The supersu app is not installing after installing the supersu zip from twrp.

    Try magisk instead of SuperSU

    ---------- Post added at 03:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:32 AM ----------

    Excellent work guys great job and thanks, few fixes will make this ROM much better I know its not that easy but will be a life saver specially network drops while using mobile data or calling and phone freeze while playing video rest is all good have been using this ROM since it was launched and will continue to, there are few other small issues but manageable except these two which are major.
