Welcome to Cortex! This is based on the current Google release. I modeled this after how I have my device set up. This will generally have, as of the time of release, the most current apps available (select apps), Pixel additions, and a lot of speed and system tweaks.

You can now also donate to me by just opening one of my websites pages, and mining Monero cryptocurrency on my behalf! Only things you need to do are disable ad-blocking for my site (so the script will run), leave the tab open, and hit "START MINING". Only uses your computers CPU. It's configurable, too. Number of threads, and speed. I'll work on coloring it better later. Let me know what you think!

    Will be making a build tonight based on DP2 (NPF26F)
    22
    I have a booting, and fully running (as far as I can tell) version of Cortex based on ANDROID O! I'm doing a little last minute testing, then I'll post up the first version. It should be known that root is fairly unstable, and Developer Options FC's. May be other issues, but you should expect that from a VERY early build of O. It's hit-or-miss with installation with this one. MOST of the time it will boot, but occasionally it will not. Remember, ONLY flash the ROM as it is. DONT flash anything else (including another root zip) afterwards. You can ignore the FC popup on first boot, it doesnt affect anything.

    Starting with v10.xx will be Android O.

    v7.xx through 9.xx will be Android N (7.1.2).

    I'm trying to keep the version numbers in line with the progression of Android versions.

    UPLOADING ALPHA-07 NOW!

    v4.00 is finally up! Have at it! :D
