Beans is working on bringing up Android 8, so we are collectively in a holding pattern here. I personally wasn't in the mood to wait, so until Pure Nexus Android 8 is released, I installed Validus ROM. It was the most bug free Android 8 ROM I found, though I did replace the kernel with the one from Republic of Madness as RoM ROM (heh) has quick charging not present in the Validus alpha.
Do you happen to have the link to the room ?

911 emergency calls don't work

Yeah so. Totally a very bad problem with the rom.
Today I had to"try" to dial 911 because I thought my 4 year old son was dying...
The phone can not and will not dial911
I'm running 7.1.2 2017-7-25 official

A search of the thread would point out that you need to set the phone app as default. Settings -> apps -> gear icon -> phone app.

And while it'll get me slammed for saying it; I truly don't understand why people install custom ROMs or whatever and don't stay current with the related support threads to know about stuff before it's a problem. This was identified shortly after the last release.

Ok so that fixed it. Thanks for the quick response

This problem even if it has been fixed... Should be announced in the main sticky. I mean this is serious. I can't think of a worse problem ANY room can cause

Likely, people aren't going to go looking for a fix for 911 calling issues until they discover it doesn't work. That is clearly a problem. Given the size of this thread, it's really hard to stay abreast of all the nuances. I read this thread every couple of days and I wasn't aware of the 911 issue. IF I saw it, it didn't sink in because it may not have seemed relevant to me. So I agree, it should be noted in the opening post in big letters.

I've actually been having some of the issues Srakd is having but not to the extent he is. My biggest issue has been battery drain and the phone getting these bouts of hanging/laggyness. Phone gets randomly hot in my pocket too. I've tried different setting, Kernel's etc...

It's totally manageable though.
The only fix that worked for me is the fotakill apk you can find in this thread.

I used to have to reboot once a day to avoid extreme laggyness, especially with Maps, and since I installed fotakill, I have rebooted once in a week.
