    Using 20180718 build I don't see any custom settings section under Settings or find them added into the regular/default sections - no turn off nav bar, no advanced power menu, no status bar tweaks, etc - has Moto Actions but that's it.

    Meh, read the title. Understand the concept.
    Also, Power Menu / Advance reboot etc are in Settings > Battery
    Battery icon customisation aswell is in Settings > Battery

    Themes, Navigation bar, Weather etc are in Settings > Display
    Gestures like double tap etc are in Settings > System > Gestures

    Heads up disable is in Settings > Notification

    Roaming icon is in Settings > network & internet

    Thanks for clarifying, found everything and am now running the ROM which seems pretty good so far. I did understand the concept and do prefer streamlined ROMs with relatively few extra settings that I'll actually use, and if you had listed some main features in the OP I would've known to look longer to find them. I've installed most ROMs here since this G5+ forum was started and never saw nav bar under Advanced Display or advanced power menu under Battery, and since no nav bar w/FP gestures is the first thing I set up, I gave up after not quickly finding that. Thanks for your work and hope it continues despite what other posters may say.

    Just a heads up for those who might be on Republic Wireless. The build number for this ROM isn't supported buy them. I'm not sure if there's a solution but if anyone has a solution let me know I'd like to try this ROM out. Thanks

    Update: I was able to activate it manually.

    This is the best rom for potter very smooth and fluid and every option is present where it should be unike other roms where they accumulate all the option in single place that doesnt make any sense.

    Battery life is awesome too but i noticed stand by drain when i sleep at night battery was 35 and when i woke up it was 10 on first cycle i will try use doze for gms and see the result.

    Apart from this rom is amazing everything just works perfectly.

    Thank you for thus wonderful rom. Everything is damn good except that I'm unable to use android messages app.

    Feature request: could you please include Google dialer and android messages as default apps ?

    I'm very picky with ROMs apparently, but this one really works for me. All the things that were bugging me about Lineage, this doesn't have. This is more-or-less the experience I was looking for with Lineage originally- a basic rom that feels like what stock should have been. Notification light, passes safety net, everything more-or-less works the way you'd think and is found where you expect it to be. Smooth and great, this ROM deserves a lot more love than it is getting!!

    Only thing that I'm concerned about is battery. First day I used it alot so I had a decent amount of SOT, but today I'm using it less yet still seeing steady battery depletion. Could just be that the battery needs to be calibrated, nothing in particular seems to be draining it more than normal.

    AGREED!

    Any update on the battery for you? Does it get better over time? My phone does seem to be using more power than I expected in standby too. I'm wondering if it has to do with how it is handling the radio? Reception seems different than stock, but it might just be the bars are displaying differently.

    Sad that the P version is getting more attention, Oreo is rock solid and aside from battery, everything seems to work as well (or better) than stock!
