Congrats & many thanks for providing the first non-treble "regular" Pie ROM for Moto G5 Plus! Everything running well for ~12 hrs, Magisk fully passes safetynet (another first for Pie on G5+), only issue so far is camera crashes when trying to use video.

EDIT: There are two cameras, the "blue icon" one does record video but not the other GCam.

To use GCam for video Open GCam settings press on Advanced scroll down and find: back camera video resolution and change it to UHD 4k (30fps), turn on video stabilisation and save location options! :)

Hello Everyone,
One more issue.
While downloading large app ( like PUBG), the wifi bar shows full strength but it says cannot download not connected to WiFi after downloading about 150-200 MB.
Any one knows a fix for this?

    Frequent / Common Question and Answers

    Question: Is this rom based on AOSP or Lineage?
    Answer: It is based on AOSP ( https://android.googlesource.com/ ). Also, keep in mind that all android roms are based on AOSP itself.

    Question: Does this rom support VoLTE?
    Answer: Well, yes it does. It works fine for Jio IND. I don't know about other VoLTE providers.
    Keep in mind that, Many Potter users face efs, persist issues when they come from Stock ROM to customs etc, always keep a backup of efs and persist

    Question: Google Camera is force closing in this rom?
    Answer: Google Camera from Stock/Aroma etc GApps will not work, we need Google Camera Mod. If Google Camera Mod is crashing then you need GApps as GCam depends upon Google Play Services/Frameworks
    Also, the recommended GCam app is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ar...ter/GCam-Minimal-Mod-jhenrique09.apk/download

    Question: Can I dirty Flash the new update?
    Answer: Yes, you can dirty flash the new updates as many times as you like unless the OP explicitly says to CLEAN FLASH

    Question: Which TWRP should i use to flash this ROM?
    Answer: The latest available in twrp.me website

    Question: Is this rom support MicroG / Signature spoofing?
    Answer: Yes, it does.

    Question: Where are the features in this rom?
    Answer: You can find most features like Battery Customisation, Themes, Music Visualizer, Weather, QS Panel Tweaks, HW & Navbar buttons (Advanced power menu), Clock and Date in the Settings > Display section
    You can also check Heads Up notifications & Apps Ops in Settings> Apps & Notifications etc

    Question: Wireless Display is not working on this rom
    Answer: Have a look at:
    I don't think that works in any rom, its broken in all other custom Pie devices too
    The wireless display thing, you cant cast the whole phone but Chromecasting or any specific app casting works
    [As of 20th September 2018]
    update: The support for WFD is added back, but won't work as flawlessly as it did in Oreo

    Question: Hi I am facing this bug, please solve it
    Answer: No, please include logs and tell me how to reproduce the same bug

    Question: I am using this Custom Kernel, and I have this and this issue, please help me?
    Answer: Well, you can use any custom kernel you want, but the bugs you face after that I won't care looking at them because most probably the stock kernel doesn't have them.

    Question: Please suggest me the best kernel for this rom?
    Answer: I would say the default kernel! or try and stick to the one which suits you.
