Snapchat doesn't let me log in. As the Snapchat support said, it's because the root access in 7.0 and 7.1 (it's ridiculous), they don't support it, but they do support in 6.0...
On startup, settings is crashing. If you try to change the status bar's icons, for example the battery's icon, it doesn't change, and if I try to set that the percentage to be shown, it just doesn't want to change it. Advanced reboot works.
Great work, but I need Snapchat af, so I have to downgrade to 13.0... :(
Maybe, if you could fix the Snapchat problem, it would be pretty nice.
Thanks for your hard work Kyasu, we love you.

The problem is related to Snapchat, not the ROM.
So that can't be fix by a ROM dev or builder.

You can try to hide root, though.

Yeah, that's right, but Snapchat just doesn't give a damn. They say "it's because of the root access, use original rom". I just typed them "fck off", and gave them 1 star, just to be a bad boy. #youonlyliveonce

I'll try the root hide, is there an app which gives me the opportunity to hide only from Snapchat? If so, can you tell me which one is that?

Thanks a lot.

Have you tried to deactivate root trough developer settings ? (SuperSU must be not flashed )

SuperSU + suhide might work.
Or Magisk and phh root.

Didn't work. I've tried installing the SuperSU, it was successfull, and then when I tried to install suhide, it said "fatal error", because of the SuperSU is installed (????).

Any other ideas? :(

You have to remove CM root first.
Delete SU files from xbin and bin folders.

SuperSU also needs to be installed in systemless mode. It should have been flashed that way by default.

Try to flash this(I made it to use the Magisk) before install the SuperSU, it will unroot your ROM. And make sure that the SuperSU is installed in systemless mode.

Or, you can try the Magisk & phh & Magisk hide instead(I prefer this).
