Special thanks:
@tecknight for supplying the rooted boot.img, a root method for the Aristo 2, and for fixing up my Custom Rom. A lot of the credit really should go to him, because without his help my effort would have been useless. So again thank you tecknight.

It's not to hard. I just take in a lot that I read from other forums. I'm not as experienced as others but I've been learning on the way.

I can try to change the calling app, I did it once. Do you have any suggestions as to what app I should use to replace the call app? And would you like some more features to be added. I'm lacking on some idea's. I'm already looking at adding Substrantum, Audio FX, Eleven Music, and a CPU Controller. "Those will be in the next Update, along with a new boot animation."

Thank you for the work you've put in! I just wanted to report that I crash when I try to click Home Screen in the Settings under the display tab. Also, would it be possible for you to post the vendor files or what ever you used to compile the rom. That would be extremely helpful.

I used the Stock rom to make this Rom. So essentially it's just a Custom Stock Rom with replaced Apps.

Hey have you had any updates on the keep. I can pull it from the boot I'm for you if you'd like.

And also have you flashed the new update? I add a couple more things and removed some more. I'm stuck unless I can get some more suggestions from everyone.

I hate auto correct so much:rolleyes:. I meant to say do you have any updates on the kernel. And lower down I meant to say do you still need the zimage.

I'm about to update the ROM again. It will boot faster and have better battery and charger speed.

Thank you for this custom ROM and TWRP! I tested this (and still using as a daily driver) and can confirm working on the LG Phoenix 4 AT&T unlocked bootloader. With Magisk 18.0 I wouldn't recommend you update till a later version is released due to force close errors, but is rare with bash installed to /system. This ROM is very clean and I'm impressed and big thanks to the developer I've been looking for a way to root my Phoenix 4 and have a debloated rom

I'm about to change the ROM's build.prop to fit the ROM. Can I get some volunteers to help me edit the settings app.
I'm in!!! Wednesday I'll have my new PC so I can create a new settings app

Awesome!!! I'm amazed that my ROM worked for the Phoenix 4. It was originally for the Aristo 2. What kind of firmware are you running? Also I'm about to release an Oreo Version of the ROM. Would you mind pre-testing it?

I would love to pre-test your rom! I'm on 7.1.2 as the Phoenix 4 was before this rom. No one has even found root or TWRP that works for this device yet so I feel good knowing this rom works

I'd feel good to! Your the first one ever to root that phone. So if Aristo 2 firmware worked then the TWRP with the Oreo Kernel should work for you to. I'll post the link in a sec.
