Running this since the weekend, just my 2pence:

-very stable, but notifications keep missing after a while (weren't them fixed by B370?!)
-locksreen notifications works with 480dpi stock theme, with any difference they disappear
-root is working but only in systemless mode
-xposed v86 working flawlessly

I'm experiencing issue only with AdAway app that keeps crashing, dunno if it's systemless root or what, but on B330 was working
Maybe in next versione you could update the list of compatibile app for dualwindow (there is a single file to change)

Good work! Keep it up ?

Should work, but maybe the radio/modem that gets patched while installing stock OTA B370 is relevant.
MoDaCo ROM r7 does not patch or flash the radio. Make a complete TWRP backup (including modem), flash from r6 to r7 and
flash the ZIP with the modem I attached. If problems occur do a Huawei backup and full wipe so you have a clean r7.
The changes of the modem can not been seen under device info, but I made a binary comparison of the modem images
to see that something had changed.

    I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Honor 7 PLK-L01!

    READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know.

    About MoDaCo Custom ROMs

    MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs. A MCR release is designed to feel like a stock Emotion UI ROM with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.

    This ROM is part of the 'Unified Honor ROM' project - ROMs with the same changes are available for all current Honor devices.

    A MCR version with a more 'stock Android' like interface is under development.

    Requirements

    In order to use this ROM you must have a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) installed. The ROM is installed at your own risk. A wipe IS recommended if coming from a ROM other than MCR or stock. BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE INSTALLATION!

    Features
    • Based on the B370 custom ROM starter template (you may use MCR as a base for your own ROM)
    • ROM fully optimised with the unique MCR scripts
    • Updated power management policies to reduce instances of 'missing notifications'
    • All apps in ROM updates to latest versions (a considerable saving of over 1GB on /data!)
    • Busybox installed
    • sepolicy patched boot image ready for root
    • selinux permissive
    • Removed 'icons' from /system/themes (themes no longer need to include default icons again)
    • MoDaCo Custom Kitchen (coming soon!)
    • Multi user support
    • Multi window support
    • Preloaded Stockify theme stub
    • Numerous other small refinements - please see the gitlab commits for full details
    • This ROM is completely in version control at gitlab! https://gitlab.com/u/paulobrien/projects
    • Want more tweaks and changes? Post your requests in the support topic.
    Changelog

    Please see the post below this one for the changelog.

    Installation

    You should install this ROM on a device that has previously been updated to the B370 release.

    To install this ROM:
    • Download the zip file from the links below and copy to your internal / external SD card.
    • Restart your device in recovery mode
    • PERFORM A BACKUP FROM THE MENU
    • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to the SD card.
    Important Note: As this ROM is partially deodexed, first boot can take a long time. If you have not wiped, you can check for any issues with adb logcat. Be patient!

    Downloads

    Please do not mirror these downloads elsewhere.
    Support

    If you have a general question, please post in the topic.

    Thanks

    It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

    Future Updates - READ THIS!

    By providing this ROM I am not guaranteeing that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely.

    And finally...

    Enjoy!

    This build isn't deodexed, a future build will be.

    I'm not sure that will solve the Xposed option, but it's something I'm looking into, along with APKtool and a number of other things.

    I always want to build TWRP 3 for the 7.

    Stay tuned.

    MoDaCo Custom ROM r5 is now online in the first post!

    New in this release...
    • Updated all apps
    • Further size and performance optimisations
    • Spectrum MCR theme now included by default - no more icon replacements!
    • MoDaCo Custom Kernel (MCK r2) is now included. Updated to 3.10.101 with ikconfig-pulled stock config
    • Install script now uses rm for improved flash speed
    • Removed unneeded ISO contents (will add new content in future release)
    • Removed preloaded pics (space saving for future features, such as ADB binaries and drivers in the ISO)
    • Corrected several ROM typos
    • Touchplus changes (user request, untested)
    • Multiwindow changes (user request, untested)
    Starting with this release, the ROM is now completely in version control - https://gitlab.com/paulobrien/android_mcr_honor_7/commits/mcr - so you can exactly what's changed in each release (or use the changes in your own ROM!)

    This version of the ROM remains deodexed for increased hackability, we will move to a 'hybrid' odex/deodex model in the future. This means a long first boot time, so please be patient.

    If you are running an odexed ROM, you need to check your logcat for 'dex2oat' errors - I've seen a LOT of these occuring on the Honor 7, which can affect system performance considerably.

    Enjoy the ROM! :)

    A quick update on r4, which is in preperation now.

    Aside from integrating the latest updates as always, I've started looking at Facebook Redex, which shows some promise for eking out a bit of extra performance from the*ROM. We can't just apply it to everything en masse (that doesn't work), but I've started working out how to integrate it into my existing MCR optimisation scripts. FWIW, my existing scripts do a much better job on pure size, but Redex should help in some other regards.

    One thing that is really important for me for the ROM is to sort the 'missing notifications' issue - as such I've started a topic discussing it here in the Honor 7 forum at XDA​​​​​​​. Please have your say, hopefully we can sort it out!

    Finally, a lot of changes are being prepared to bring the ROM closer to 'stock Android', around both the content and theming. The real potential of custom ROMs will be unlocked when APKTool works with Honor / Huawei devices, I am liaising with Connor, the APKTool developer, to try and make this happen.

    Stay tuned! :)
