XenonHD is the first Official custom ROM for ZE520KL and ZE552KL. It was stable and fast. But due to some reasons it received no updates and always remained 'Experimental'.
I found it to be capable enough for my daily driver.
Hope it changes this time around.

Are you talking about XenonHD 8.1? There's 8 experimental builds and 1 official as far as I know

But this one will receive Official tag in the future, Pie is still too "young" and this may take a while

I would recommend a clean flash just to be safe. But if you're gonna install Xenon, wait for a few days because the next update will require a clean flash. We're gonna use private keys on our ROMs, so the clean flash will be necessary to install the next update (after that you'll be able to update with a dirty flash like before). I think I'll release an update next week with November security patch, so that's why I'm holding it right now

And yeah, we have OTA!

Thanks for the reply!!! i cant wait .....ohhh and one more question if you dont mind me asking....does XenonHD have that zoom-in bug in youtube....alot of people were experiencing this bug on nougat on other devices and it might be irrelevant today....but i thought i would ask before trying the rom to make sure....if you dont know which bug im talking about, you can visit the XenonHD rom for the 2015 J7 and see what people are talking about....since everbody was affected by it and it made the rom unusable to anyone who uses youtube....sorry for the long question bro...

What was the bug?

Because I've tested yesterday and I haven't found anything wrong with that (but I'm using it for the first time too, so... :p)

The bug happens when playing any youtube video and all of the sudden the video zooms-in on any corner of the device so it ruins the watching experience....this bug is present in Nougat based builds of this rom for other devices and as i said everyone is affected....thats why i asked you if you had experienced this in this build....it could also be fixed from the main sources from the XenonHD Team and completly irrelevant today....

I think this was fixed a long time ago, I've used both XenonHD 8.1 from makorn and this one and never saw anything like that (I even used Xenon 8.1 on my Moto G falcon from 2013 and works great there too)

I thought of something completely different from that, but nevertheless: this bug don't occur on this ROM

Hi there....been almost a week since the November Patch source code got released....so i have been wondering when will you release the next build of XenonHD...i have been dreading my current rom for a while now but i didnt change it because i took your advice to wait for the next build which will require a clean flash no matter what....so could we get an ETA for that??...also what do you think about (Migrate) for custom rom switching???? should i use it to transfer my Data from my current rom to XenonHD in the future or do you think it will cause problems and conflicts....i just wanna hear your opinion about it thats all....As always Have a good Day Bro!!...

We need to wait until LOS merges the new changes from November security patch (they will merge it tomorrow)

I don't know about Migrate because I've tested version 1.0.5 and it was giving some errors (as posted on their thread), so I don't know if today's release fixed those bugs

And good day to you!
