Security updates

Hi to all,
Just want to say that update the security patches here will be a bit tricky and will probably need more time since they need to be backported.
Cheers!

Thanks for your work! Can anyone say how this performs compared to the LineageOS ROM?
One thing I noticed is that the long wait before starting Google Store download reduced a lot, now less than 30 seconds. This might be due to the version of gapps, but very comfortable for me.
