OP, I'm about to acquire an A2017G device. I'm wondering if you plan on supporting this device for the foreseeable future, because that would be great. Please, reply.

Great work, by the way.

Which Axon 7 recent ROM can do auto call recording ?

Hello,
It is not in the feature list but I'd like to ask if there is an auto call recording option in this ROM ?
If not, which recent ROM has this function ?

Axon 7 still not dead.

Thank you for this ROM.

It has auto call recording.
Phone, contact and messaging have white background in dark mode.
GPS is fast (4 s in taxland).
There in no need to install or modify something to revert the hardware keys (back is already on the right).
There is an additional number row on the keyboard.

To the last couple of replies. Every custom ROM now always uses the premium DAC for headphones. No need to worry about that.

As for speaker audio and Atmos, I've tested many different stock roms, custom ROMs and mods including the stock Atmos on stock Oreo and Nougat and I found that the best sounding of all is the recent Dolby Digital plus magisk module.

You won't find it in the repo, but you will if you use Google.

I was a believer that better audio was a reason to stay on stock. Not any more.

Thanks for the rom and some issues/missing features I found

Thanks for the ROM! Works great and I'm not suffering battery drain that I used to get on the AEX rom. There are a few issues/missing features/stuff that I wish the rom had.

Missing:
- Smart Pixels
- Brightness lower/higher buttons
- Ability to change animation speed to values to between 0 and 0.5.

Bug?:
- HARDWARE Navigation buttons were switched to RECENTS - HOME - BACK instead of BACK - HOME - RECENTS. There is NO option to swap the hardware buttons. I fixed this by using the app "Button Mapper"

great rom, feels really good so far

I have one issue though I tried switching back / recents using your Soft key reverse switch (twrp and magisk) because I actually would like to have back on the left side but it didn't work (although the twrp aroma installer offered it as second option?)
Is there another switch I have to set in the rom in order to switch softkeys? @raystef66

---

I read through your post and what the change needed to be made and ended up editing the kl file myself through adb. I had to do it in recovery mode though which felt weird, but worked in the end.
