Cool to have new ROMs popping up now! Thanks, mate!

Are you able to tell if this one is compatible with the dual SIM version? I know it's probably a no, but worth the check.

Best regards.

Saw that it's pulled from CM12. So, now its definitely a no. :(

at least did u tried it?
well, i can try to make it compatible, whats the codename of that z3 dual? if there's a device tree compatible for both models...i could use it.
we have to find that rom wich is compatible with both models and try use the same tree...

I didnt, but I am downloading it now to give it a try.

The model is D6633. I'm not sure why the developres havent figured out yet what goes on with the RIL on the Dual SIM. Since I'm not a developer, can hardly help in this :(

So can we extract the boot.img from this and use it on stock CM? What are the known bugs? What recovery do we need for this?

in steps it states to flash recovery into fota partition...or else use cm kernel/recovery to flash it...doesn't matter till full wipes are done...
bugs? its a dev thread buddy nothing works lmao. :p flash and report back! all primary functions seems to work by now...then its minor things.

yes I did flashed it clean with wiping of data,cache,dalvik-cache,and system via twrp. from stock rom 23.0.1.A.5.77 using androplus kernel.

---------- Post added at 07:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:52 AM ----------

okay i shall reflash the rom again coming from stock firmware luckily i have already created a backup from the stock in case anything goes wrong. I will wipe the data.cache,dalvik-cache,and system before flashing via twrp. I will provide some screenshots this time.

bro edit your previous post with screenshots and delete them.

My tester has the same as you the D6603 and not having any issue with calling nor texting. try import your contacts from contact app, not from call app.

As I'm not really too familiar with the CM bugs and I suck at searching for those (all the githubs, repos and such are like black magic to me :p), is this ROM only missing double tap to wake and loudspeaker?
