Bootleggers ROM is an aftermarket firmware based on AOSP with some patches and fixes from LineageOS and various other projects. The idea is to bring custom features and some of the most useful apps on your device, with the goal of Making you feel like 家.

With an almost stable source, this ROM is also packed with some custom wallpapers (avaliable on ShishuWalls), ringtones, fonts, and themes to bring to your device into a more fresh look and give you always a good experience.

Also, we got our Telegram Group to talk about the ROM, share some love, ideas or even have fun with us!

Some of the features that are included on this ROM are:
* QS Rows and Colums
* Volume Keys: Wake up, skip tracks and switch according to rotation
* Show song album cover, visualizer and battery info on Lockscreen
* Power Menu Items
* Battery LED light settings
* Suspend Actions: Make your device disable GPS and switch to 2G when you're not using it
* AppOps: Manage your apps permissions in an advanced way
* Recent Styles: Dig the new Pie Quickstep recents, go back to the classic layout or use the Android Go layout
* Network icons: Show or hide the cross, switch between 4G or LTE, use the classic icon layout before Pie or toggle roaming icon too!
Also, you can check a full list of Features available here.

@malinathani Since we don't have a cache partition since it's an A/B device, would you mind deleting it from the instructions in the OP so people aren't taking any extra unnecessary steps when flashing?

Working pretty well. Adaptive brightness seems a bit janky though. Seems to flicker at the same brightness level in the room.
Well that seems weird, I'm not facing anything like that.
Actually, smurf's kernel has a flicker free mod (which is off by default)
Try using that and see if the issue is there.

This rom is seriously amazing. 2 things though, is there OnePlus like gestures? I couldn't seem to find them. And when trying to use fling gestures, system ui kept crashing

Love the ROM. Haven't found any bugs. Good stuff.

Although I just noticed my battery... Down from 100% to 72% with only 9 min SOT :(

Google play services is the culprit according to battery stats. It's taking up over 20% of battery..
