Thanks for the QuickSwitch tipIf you want to change launchers safely then use QuickSwitch. But you'll need Magisk installed for that. I use Lawnchair over the Pixel Launcher, so I change the default launcher in Quickswitch to that. I guess I'll use ADB to remove the unwanted Google apps. Does this new rom get OTA updates?
Nolen says he does new builds once a month or so. So you can expect updates.
