Does it use the original stock boot image? Every other ROM I've used have posted their own boot img, invis did it for LOS and AOSIP did as well for their 8.1 ROM.

The bottom of the OP tells you how to dump the boot image from the ROM you're currently running. It says, "For advanced users", but if you can read, it's not difficult.

Didn't fix nfc yet, but I found out today that the alarm doesn't work, so that fixed. I'll be uploading build 2 with these new features:

- Updater app, you can choose a zip with a file manager(not the stock one yet, I use FX File Explorer) and hit install, and once it's done, reboot and it'll be updated to new build. This is something I whipped together in an hour, so its not final yet, and it will have delta updates soon
- Alarm now rings(missed an interview because of this bug)
- SafetyNet passing on stock

Currently working on:
- Delta OTA's
- Persistent notification for updates
- NFC
- A way to root with magisk without needing to manually patch boot and install
- Themeing support(use Bucket Overlay Manager on play store for root theming for now) SUBSTRATUM IS NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE SUPPORTED
- More Features

I'll also push boot.IMG with it for people using magisk

Worked with AOSIP dev a bit for NFC. I might have it now. If so, I can fully focus on what's ahead:

- Delta OTA's
- A way to root with magisk without needing to manually patch boot and install
- Theming support(use Bucket Overlay Manager on play store for root theming for now) SUBSTRATUM IS NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE SUPPORTED
- More Features

This build will be posted in about an hour. Sorry for the delays, but I had a couple breakthroughs

Safetynet isn't as easy to fix as I figured. Not a high priority. Goals for tonight's build:

- Gapps issues fixed(needing to force close play store)
- Updater uses progressbar correctly
- Delta updates
- Less stock bloat apps
- maybe more

In the pipeline:
- A way to root with magisk without needing to manually patch boot and install
- Theming support(use Bucket Overlay Manager on play store for root theming for now) SUBSTRATUM IS NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE SUPPORTED
- Safetynet
- More Features

    I'm gearing up for a HUGE release soon. I fixed most of the noticable bugs(known exception is notch cutting into fullscreen apps), added a lot of features to the ROM, and Updater now works as expected(including magisk install, we don't have a server yet, so no downloads).

    Everyone should rejoice today. I managed to get magisk to install during the ROM build. So no more needing twrp for root

    im not exactly new, rooting and doing custom roms way back to when htc hero came out.

    I know about how ETAs are some weird taboo.

    your attitude though, is unnecessary.

    What I do know is that your type of behavior kills threads and user support to custom roms.

    The dev here might as well drop this project, any potential interests in this rom will be turned away by your type of posts.

    Funnily enough, their post made me laugh and want to continue my hobby. They're right. I do this as a hobby, work a full-time job, work on *other* projects and help with *other* devices. Invictrix got 5 more devices brought up in the last week with some help from me. As long as I own mata and don't sell it(probably won't for a year, this is a really good phone) there will be builds. But forget all this entitlement. If I so much as don't feel in the mood to release, I don't have to. There were still some issues in the build I was going to release that I'm working with a tester to help fix. And yes @rignfool my girlfriend doesn't much like the time I put into rom development, when it could be used to spend more time as a family.

    So if someone wants to complain about releases, they can go make their own builds and worry about the problems of the builds in their personal time. The source code is up. It's on GitHub. Get going.

    Side note: nfc works and I added a few more options to Settings-> display for dt2s and pixel navbar and lockscreen torch
