Hi guys, is Adopted Storage working in this rom? I tried to activate it on my 32 GB SD Card (SanDisk Extreme A1) but after formatting it, the phone recognizes it as a damaged card.
Someone tested and had success with Adopted Storage?

Yes, using a Samsung 128GB microSD formatted as Internal (Adopted) Storage. My device is the xt1548 Sprint compatible Osprey. I have experienced no problems, bugs, instabilities, etc.

I'll try with another SD card. Maybe A1 SD card aren't supported by this device?
That's a good question. I'm really not sure, but if it helps any, mine is a UHS-I Samsung 128GB EVO Standard micro SDXC (Class 10) card.

From what I'm reading spec-wise, according to GSM Arena and some of the more reputable specification sources, the Osprey only officially supports microSD cards up to a maximum of 32GB. But, like most Motorola smartphones (running on at least an MM based ROM) 64GB and 128GB microSD cards also work. Also, it appears that only UHS-I type cards are officially supported, and I cannot confirm whether UHS-II types will work.

Well this will be the first rom I've flashed in some time. Can someone point me in the direction of SuperSU or majisk to get root please?

Edit: Nevermind. I found SuperSU 2.82 sr5. Hopefully it works for me

     * Your warranty is now void.
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    AOSP is Android as Google release without other modifications, similar to Pixel/Nexus stock rom but without gapps.
    Features such as Chop Chop, Double Twist and Ambient display gestures are kept.
    Google does not release an AOSP Browser anymore since Marshmallow, thus there isn't a default browser. If I find the time I might port and revamp it in the future.

    Requires Unlocked Bootloader & a custom recovery (at least twrp-osprey-3.1.1-r3.img or newer release is needed)
    1. Place ROM & Gapps in your virtual SD
    2. Reboot in Bootloader Mode
    3. Go to "Recovery" (Vol +/Vol -) and confirm (power)
    4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
    5. Wipe Dalvik cache
    6. Install the ROM zip
    8. Install the Gapps zip (optional)
    9. Reboot

    For the record, I'm not dead nor this project is. In the last weekend I worked on the OSS sensor hal (moto opened its sources in january), I brought it up to date and working on oreo, it will be included in the next build.

    21/11/2017 - Initial Release
    The new build is finally available with February and March security patches included. As I previously mentioned I'm now using an open source Sensor HAL now (backstory here for the curious).
    Also round icons are now enabled. That fancy feature introduced with Nougat that became useless on Oreo due to adaptive icons. Though for some reason Google decided to enable the Chrome adaptive icon only on devices that come with this feature enabled and the more adaptive icons I see the happier I am...
    In the end I've also decided to remove IMS support, it's something that apparently I can't get to work here, I can't test directly and I've spent enough time on.
    A new build is out. I have to say that I'm not very lucky with this device lately and after losing my sources a couple of months ago I had to apply every hack again and at many points I can't deny I was tempted to drop the support for osprey but here we go!
    Camcorder is finally working as well as offline charging.
    Gestures menus have been unified.
    Graphic configuration has been reworked, I've switched back to HWC1 since HWC2 was causing performance issues and our platform does not really support it.
    Kernel and wlan drivers have been inlined with qcom's latest tag. In the end they decided to support it once more and in june they published the first oreo release for our platform.
    Backuptool has been implemented: you don't need to install gapps every time you dirty flash anymore, backuptool will do this for you and just like pixels, Google Sans is now being used in some places of the system; mainly settings titles.
    I've also moved to AOSP apns list to improve the ROM maintainability. If mobile data stops working after a clean flash, check your apns, it might be missing now if yours is a new carrier or a MVNO.
    Of course security patches of these missing months have been included system and kernel side both.

    An advice: due to the whole rework/reapply of the support for this device, do a backup, I might have missing something and the device configuration based on the variant has totally changed.
    In the end bad news: after realizing the amount of hacks this device needs, almost likely I won't bring Android P on it.
