thank you so much for your work ^^ we are really appreciated
only 1 question : the rom is a little bit laggy sometimes, is it because the rom is in alpha stage or the phone is too weak to run on Oreo ????

where is ¨on go mode¨ ? pocket mode missing ? Not found from where to change lock screen buttons or to remove it ? where is record screen mode ? 1st boot 4-5 minutes 2nd boot 10-12 seconds :) on the first boot when it searching for updates everything crashing and then when you wait and finish the tutorial everything gets better.
7.1.2 RR yuga is better - not missing these things.

Hey my question may be stupid.
It says that OpenGapps (Use packages for ARM, Android 7.x, Micro or Pico). why is it not Android 8.0?
Guess he forgot to edit that. Anyway install the 8.0 micro one will do.

What are you thinking?? Its clear thats not a Stable Version. Its first in Developement. But its very Cool for our Old Z that is Possible to create an Android 8 Rom. I hope the Rom in the Next Time are Stable. Good Luck

Thx a lot for your work on this old device.
In contrast to the 19.12.17 build, the new 26.12.17 stops recognizing my sim card.
Switching to the old build brings back the sim card...

Another point i recognized: The power consumption is much higher than the 14.x builds.

Thanks, I will look into this SIM Card issue.
Well, other than open-source drivers (aka DASH), there are no specific changes that affects battery life. I am sure on longer term, DASH will improve battery life (speaking strictly on 14.1 development build that I am testing).
However, I would not comment anything until 15.0 builds get SEPolicies cleaned up first.

Fixed the build, please test again.
