Hi everyone, here is a new build with "doze", should improve battery life (and I'm using it, I think it does ! ;))
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cKzSmxPJvPYuLowyNMqdriJGa7kYMlhD

For those who hope for Oreo updates, my todo/trying list is the following :
  • trying to improve the kernel, in order not to have to install a custom one to have videos with Instagram/WhatsApp
  • trying to update the ROM with Google security patches
If I succeed to do that, I may be able to maintain DotOS 2.5, and thus LineageOS ;)

But just a reminder : I'm doing it for my personal interest/curiosity, and I have a work and kids, so don't expect to much from me !

Something is better than nothing. Personal life is always important. I hope that people won't pester you for updates. Thanks for developing Oreo ROMs.
I have a query. When I used this ROM, the screen on time was worse than your lineage OS ROM but idle drain was similar. Since doze reduces idle drain, have your screen on time improved with this version?

Don't know yet, but feel free to test ;)

Thank you, @adinechin ! This rom is really good. I use it with "PBH" kernel. It's fast and smooth, with good customization options and no major issues. Voice calling quality is also good - may be the in call volume is a little loud and also the interlocutors hear a very slight echo of their voice.
I found two bugs:
1.After restarting, Substratum layers are deactivated and must be reactivated.
2. Cracking sound of notifications with stock kernel.
And one question - is the latest version of September 9th?

Hi and thanks for your feedback :)
About security patches, the Oreo version has been abandonned since March so I'll have to merge the fixes myself and fork all repositories needed. It might take some time but I'm willing to do it ;)
For the other bugs I don't know if I can fix them, but you can always send logs...

  • Pie kernel for better battery life, and video bug in WhatsApp and Instagram
  • Update of security patch to june (I don't know why but I did not succed to merge patches to september, and be aware that the patch might not be really up to date even to june...)
I wanted to share this build because I've not much time these days, but the Pie kernel is a good improvement.
