AT THE MOMENT THE ROM IS CORRUPTED.
I AM TRYING TO MAKE IT WORK AGAIN.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR THE “FL” VARIANT ONLY.


This is pikaOS!
A brand new rom based on lineageOS 19.1.

WHAT IS PIKAOS?
PikaOS
is a rom based on lineageOS 19.1. It includes tweaks that can save battery, more performance in games, and more.
it also includes stuff from the google pixels.
In the future it will get more unique features. For now its just the pickachu background.


REQUIREMENTS

Vendor partition must be present.
This is for the exynos variant of the a3 only.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

THIS IS NOT A FLASHABLE ZIP FILE! THIS IS A BACKUP MADE WITH SHRP.
1: Download the zip file (Its about 2.7gb)
2: Move the folder named “Place me inside ur internal storage!” in ur internal storage.
3: Go to restore and select the backup.
4: Click on the backup and RESTORE ALL PARTITONS. (
This will replace ur current recovery with SHRP recovery. U can flash any other recovery after this.)
5. Click the restore button and let it do its job.
6. Reboot into recovery

7. Confirm that the SHRP Recovery is working.
8. (Optional) Flash ur recovery of choice.
9. Reboot into PikaOS
10. Enjoy!

HOW DO I UPDATE?

As of now, u will have to restore a backup to "Update". So make sure u will have a backup via google one by installing gapps.

TROUBLESHOOTING

The phone is bootlooping! What do i do!?

Confirm that ur using the right variant of the device. Its for the exynos a3 2017 only.

When i restore the backup, it gives me error 255.
Format ur internal storage.

Can not install the vendor image.
Make sure u have created the vendor partition.

all it does is kill the phone, the phone's IMEI has been deleted and the phone's IMEI cannot be flashed because the folder is gone, the motherboard needs to be changed. it can't make calls at all. It's now a mini tablet with a small screen.

Is this rom usable with a320fl?
You say its corrupt but only with other versions or does a320fl work? Because this seems the most up to date and best rom for this phone at the moment.
Also a detailed install guide would be good, for noobies
