Havoc 4.1 TEST images, gapps and no gapps

To install:

Flash all images in fastboot d:

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash product product.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot -w

( If using the fastboot d option included in twrp 3.5, you must either reboot to bootloader to fastboot -w, or reboot to twrp and format data )

Default Live Wallpaper causes major system lag. Change it ASAP ( gapps version only )

Screen Casting is still Broken 🤷‍♂️

4.1 working great for me!
Only thing missing for me is pulling out the stylus to take a quick note on the lock screen, I am looking at the settings to see if I can turn that on somehow.

Anyone know how to get rid of the bootloader has been modified screen? I tried changing it with the logo replacement and it just reverts into another version of the screen in different text. My device is the moto g stylus.

Did anyone else have texting issues on this ROM? I tried using different APNs but in the end I was forced to go back to stock root. Now my texting is working but my Viper isn't working anymore :C. Was there a setting somewhere that I was missing?
3.12 build reboots me to fastboot??
It works. whats going on maybe you need the latest platform-tools and or the correct recovery installed to get to fastbootd. It shoulld say fastbootd if you're on the stock recovery, if on twrrp you go to reboot fastboot. Itls supposed to work when flashing ROMs, it's worked I'm pretty sure for me..lol

We need more info otherwise.

    I found the same thing with ACC on the latest roms too. No idea whats going on there.
    As for the stylus, ive added stuff from omni to try to get it to work, and no dice. Maybe one day.
    if you set it to open the menu when removing the stylus in aicp from feb 21 it will bring up the menu but after each reboot you must set it up again. In aicp there a moto app in the main settings screen/menu.

    Install Steps in Post #2.
    Download Links in Post #3.


    Let me know!
    To Install:

    1. Extract the zip and open a shell with ADB and fastboot.
    2. Reboot your device into fastbootd mode.

    fastboot reboot fastboot

    3. Flash boot, system, product, and vbmeta.

    fastboot set_active a
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash product product.img
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

    4. Wipe userdata.

    fastboot -w

    To install via TWRP:

    1. Install stock firmware, complete one OTA update, then install TWRP in fastboot.
    fastboot flash recovery TWRP.img
    fastboot flash recovery_b TWRP.img
    2. Format data in twrp, not wipe, format!
    3.1. For GAPPS build, flash the rom, reboot, profit.
    3.2. For Vanilla builds (if you want to install your own gapps) flash the rom, reboot to recovery, flash flame gapps basic package, reboot to system. If you dont want gapps, flash the Vanilla rom zip, reboot, profit.
    4. If you want magisk, flash it in TWRP after booting the phone to the launcher homescreen once.
