Welcome to Android Open Kang Project!
ROM Version: 8.0
Device: Alice
Maintainer: XTutorials
Build Status: UNOFFICIAL​

Disclaimer:
Code:
 * Your warranty is now void.
 * We are not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone by installing any custom ROMs and/or kernels. 
 * You do it at your own risk and take the responsibility upon yourself and you are not to blame us or XDA and its respected developers.

What is AOKP?
AOKP stands for Android Open Kang Project. It is a custom ROM distribution for several high-end Android devices. The name is a play on the word kang and AOSP (Android Open Source Project). The name was sort of a joke, but it just stuck, just like our infatuation with unicorns.

We fork the source code of Android that Google puts out in the open with every major version release, and we then add the magical unicorn bytes (read: we add some of the coolest features that are both useful and make your ROM awesome).

With AOKP, you can generally do a lot more with your device than what you could do with the original firmware that came installed on it.​

What's Working:
-Touchscreen
-MTP
-ADB
-External-SD with exFAT support
-Dual SIM Support
-Wi-Fi
-GPS
-Screen Recorder
-Audio
-Video Playback
-Deep Sleep - UNTESTED!

What's working PARTIALLY:
-Disable Wi-Fi/Bluetooth scanning On Settings->Location to fix : deep-sleep issue!
-Enable Look screen "On Call Proximity" to prevent accidental touch during calls!
-Use Footej Camera to record video up to 1080p!
-YouTube 720p60fps works in ~20fps-- but it might work with some third-party YouTube apps or use YouTube in Web Browser
-RIL may stop working after a reboot
-There might be other minor issues

What's not Working:
-Encryption
-Bluetooth
-NFC
-Sensors
-Off-mode charging
-Single SIM support
-VoLTE

Installation:
-It is mandatory to update your device to EMUI 4.1 B895/B896! (otherwise RIL won't work correctly)
-Copy ROM and Gapps to your SD-Card
-Reboot to TWRP 3.1.0-0
-Make factory reset (or clean wipe, more recomended)
-Flash B895/B896 Update if not installed already! (if yes, skip this step!)
-Restore your recovery(TWRP) because installing B895/B896 update overwrites it and if you don't make this step you'll be stuck with stock recovery until you'll flash it again.
-Make a factory reset wipe
-Flash ROM and Gapps
-Reboot and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q)
1:
Q.Is this ROM stable enough to be my daily driver?
A.As I don't own a P8 Lite anymore and I can't test it, I can't respond to this question. But the public can!

2:
Q.Will this ROM get official updates?
A.In this moment, no. If OpenKirin or our team can fix some more bugs on the Oreo device tree, maybe I will.

3:
Q.How is battery life?
A.As I said, I don't own the device anymore, so public reviews will tell.

4:
Q.What is logcat?
A.It is a tool what reads the system while running and I can fix problems easier if I see exactly what causes the problem. You will need adb tools installed or linux or adb shell on windows and usb debugging enabled in Settings-Developer Options. If you cannot get a logcat, just tell me the problem. I'll still try to fix it.

I guess that you still need a device to test before to release any custom ROM Android 8.0/8.1, or at least a few testers to check your ROM previously :)

It's not enough to build without issues the whole source code - because the resulting ROM may refused to boot for different reasons !

I know, but nobody did respond to my request. I'll try to find one a.s.a.p. Many requested to release dot 8.1 but nobody did offer to test it before releasing. I'm not releasing any other ROM without testing fron now.
Anyway, I'm not allowing these 2 ROMs to be unbootable. I might've found a temporary "fix".

Update 22/07/2018!

Update 22/07/2018!
Changelog:

-Finnaly made it to boot successfully

Download:​
aokp_alice_oreo__2018-07-22

Note: The only thing I did to this update is to use OpenKirin's RROS 6 boot.img. This way it boots with no problem. I really hope OpenKirin doesn't mind doing that, but if they do I'll probably remove this update. I could've fixed the boot problem the "hard" way, but since oreo for this device is just in experimental-phase I won't waste more time(and money, since I'm using Google Cloud Platform) on fixing this problem.​

I can report that it boots without problems but after a while it stops working ever after a reboot

PD: and my sim only works on the second slot

PD2: I started over but with b896 (in the previous attemp I used b895) the SIM was detected on first slot, 4g works,gps works, voice works without distorsion... BUT I restarted the phone to install Magisk and I lost my SIM , I mean, the phone didn't detect it.
Before the reboot I install some apps and it was fast.

I hope you can fix the issue with the sim
