Wow, I'm using the rom and I'm impressed.
Very stable, smooth and fast with a lot of tweaks and customizations.
It's my favorite now.
The battery life is not the betters but is average.
I don't find any bug, safetynet works, netflix and charge info works too.

Really great job AB ! :)
I recomend everyone to test this rom. You will not regret ;)

Does Netflix work out of the box or are you using any Magisk Module?

Guys, it's optional but in this rom I recommend change the display size to small.

Config>display>display size and set to small

Cause the j5 screen isn't so big and some thing doesn't looks good in default display size (have cuts when your swipe quick settings in landscape mode for example)

But this is my opinion, test for your own
