Q&A - FAQ
Q : Is root access included into AOSP ?
A : No but you can now root with my Boot Bridge and a superuser tool.

Q : Is the ROM suited for daily usage ?
A : Yes completely. OpenGApps recommended.

Q : I see errors during the installation, is it normal ?
A : If it is E:unknown command [log] , ignore it for now

Q : Where can I change the Quick Tiles and Status Bar ?
A : Long press the Settings icon in the notifications drawer.
> You will have access to the SystemUI Tuner from Marshmallow.

Q : The AOSP Keyboard does not support swipe gestures ?
A : Unfortunately the sources for swipe gestures are not available
and Google still requires their prebuilt library to be there for AOSP Keyboard.
Download the following libjni_latinimegoogle.so API 23 from OpenGApps
and push it to /system/lib/libjni_latinimegoogle.so using root access,
or use my one-time install zips : https://mega.nz/#F!ThEAkCRa!byhSwuoTbf6lnC1JxgKrig.​


AOSP available for Huashan also thanks to :
- Google AOSP

Hello. I will try to help compiling and see if I can fix any bugs. I helped solving some minor bugs in the Motorola Xoom Lollipop and Marshmallow roms by Schischu.

By the way. This repository <project name="CyanogenMod/android_device_qcom_sepolicy" path="device/qcom/sepolicy" remote="github" revision="see-gerrit" /> should have revision staging/cm-14.0 instead of see-gerrit.

see-gerrit does not exist.


Great job by the way.

Amazing, I believed you will bring up Nougat to XSP but I didnt think it will be that quick. BTW you wrote that you are using cm qcom/sepolicy. Am I the only one for who this is causing big troubles when porting to A device? Did you have to make any edits? I had to and there are still many neverallows caused by qcom/sepolicy :/

During bringup, I had a few manual changes but no longer needed,
you can find 2 commits related to sepolicies on gerrit,
and one I haven't published that is just for execmod text relocations.

Do not waste time with neverallows on a bringup,
delete them every time you have a failure,
and once everything's stable, put it back all and fix.

Okay, these neverallows were most annoying thing. I haven't seen any SEPolicy commits on cm gerrit but Ill definitely check it out now. Tho this is what I've done to fix SEPolicy (not counting neverallows). device_qcom_sepolicy and one commit here platform_system_sepolicy just if you want to know or maybe I did the same as you (lol). I will get on SEPolicy as soon as I can and thanks for the tip and quick reply! I love everything you do for THIS device. :)
