Code:
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

Working:
- Wifi
- Sound
- mali drivers
- USB tethering
- HW Backed video Playback
- Ril (Mobile data,calls, sms and stuff)
- Sensors
- Buttons and their backlight
- Bluetooth
- Wifi HotSpot
- MTP
- 2D and 3D gpu acceleration
- HW encoding/decoding
- Charging with device powered off
- Stuff I didn't test yet
- Camera
- GPS
- Fingerprint Sensor
- Mobicore
- SW codecs

Not Working
- HWC is temporarily disabled, should be fixed in next few builds


Take a note that a lot of LineageOS features have not been completed yet this is not a device bug and please do not report those
in this rom thread as you will be reported to moderator also do not post bug reports for known issues or bug reports without proper
a) Logcat
b) proc/last_kmsg (or proc/kmsg)
c) data/tombstones
d) dmesg

Also do not under any circumstances post bug reports if you are using substratum themes or unsupported magisk modules or you have performed any system modifications



Install gapps right after installing the rom itself dont try to boot to system before that if you want to use gapps
NikGapps and BiTgapps were both tested and working

Downloads:
Google Drive

I do this in my free time so bear that in mind when you notice I didn't fix known bug in next available build, Currently i work on this alone and i am not one of those kangers that just copy source and claim it as their own work,
if you want to support the project feel free to buy me some coffee paypal.me/ivanmeler



Feel free to join telegram group with early builds progress updates and some off topic stuff Join

Due to requests from some users I added signature spoofing support to the rom which allows usage of MicroG
you can simply install MinMicroG and grant it needed permissions for signature spoofing to make it work as intended

Next update will have a lot of improvements on the ril (modem) side, it should improve battery life and stability a lot too, Currently testing some stuff
One thing I noticed overnight, before going to bed the battery percentage was 51% and when I woke up it was 48% which is something I have never seen on my phone, usually, it was around a 10 to 15 drop. But within 5 minutes or so the battery droped to 37%.

Thanks for the continued development! Which version of microG to install for gcam and various mapping apps that require google services?

    What would you recommend Project Sakura or LOS 18.1 considering stability and performance.
    Don't know about Sakura but Los 18.1 is smooth and stable

    From my experience, LOS 18.1 is smooth and stable (and Wifi hotspot is working).
    Also, LOS 18.1 has been getting security updates but we haven't seen updates from Sakura for a minute. (Thanks @Ivan_Meler)

    Does the NFC work in this rom?
    In the other Lineage-based roms the NFC did not work.
    Haven't tested it myself but as per changelog it should work. If it didn't work just grab log and post it here, Ivan will look into it when he is free.

    I noticed lack of real development on 8895 device and had some extra time, so here we go, expect more progress happening and bug fixes (source will also be released soon)
    13
    Guess i should post some progress updats on android 12, Kernel work is finished (Merged latest upstream and 12+ pages of cgroup and bpf backports)
    still need to finish up some device tree side changes but there are too many of them this time around after that and a bit of testing build should be ready (Still cant talk about etas as unexpected things can happen and i work on this in my free time so it all depends on my schedule)
