It should go without saying, but do not lock your bootloader with this installed. You must be 100% stock, I'd suggest on both slots, in order to re-lock your bootloader. Doing otherwise will likely lead to a brick that Essential really shouldn't warranty.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

Here's a local_manifest for those who want to build at home.

Prerequisites
  • Unlocked boot loader
    FLASH THIS FIRMWARE BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • OPM1.180104.092 firmware - even if you were on this build, you should flash this firmware package to ensure the firmware is on BOTH slots.(Use flash.bat to install)
  • Fastboot, ADB and essential phone driver from their website

NOOB Proof Guide to install the Rom, Future Updates and Rooting the rom:silly::silly::victory:

Downloads
ROM BUILD 4 (Build 4 With May security patch)
(Flash This arm 64 nano gapps flash after rebooting again to twrp recovery and select partition A)

  • Boot into recovery mode and wipe user data

    Then reboot to bootloader

    with Fastboot, you can use this command:

    Code:
    fastboot getvar current-slot

    This will show you the current partition the phone is in
    If it is in partition B skip the next step

    If it is in Partition A then execute next command
    Code:
    fastboot set_active other
  • Download twrp and flash it with this command:
  • Code:
    fastboot flash boot twrp-mata_11.img
  • While still in bootloader mode, use vol down to select "Recovery mode" and hit the power button. This should boot you in to TWRP.
  • In recovery go to reboot and set partition to A
  • Then flash the rom
  • after that reboot to twrp recovery again and select partition A and flash gapps zip
  • Wipe data
  • When finished, reboot.
  • Profit!


FLASHING FUTURE UPDATES AS THIS ROM DOES NOT SUPPORT SEEMLESS UPDATES


Turn off security pin/fingerprint etc

Reboot to Fastboot

In Fastboot, you can use this command:

Code:
fastboot getvar current-slot

The output should be partition A

If not execute next command(we need it to be on B)

Code:
fastboot set_active other

This should set the Partiton to B

Reboot to recovery from within the bootloader

TWRP Should boot

Set partition to A in reboot option

Then flash the rom

after that reboot again to twrp recovery again and select partition A and flash gapps zip

then Reboot




SETTING UP ROOT USING THE BOOT.IMG


After setting up the device, download the boot.img from nutrino kernel thread and install magisk manager and patch the boot.img using magisk

copy patched boot to pc

reboot to bootloader

Flash the patched boot.img via fastboot

You should be able to boot properly and with magisk enabled and root

General Information

*Play Store keeps hanging up on restoring apps? A reset starts the restore again, but hangs up after a few apps are installed.

A)You need to force stop the play store app in setting, and then open it again

Build 3 Notes
with april security patch and bug fixes released
Flash nutrino kernel for best performance

ALSO Even though gapps are included in the build they dont work for some reason on dirty flashing
So Also download the gapps i have included in the OP and flash right after the rom without reboot

If you have any random user app fcs
uninstall the app and redownload from playstore

Enjoy!!

any difference between this older one and the new one that wouldn't boot?
Also with this version we have to flash gapps? which do we flash?

This is the build i tested
It does not include gaaps

I built gaaps into the rom for todays built but i guess something got messed up

Keeping this rom as experimental for now until i remember how i flashed gaaps with the current build

    It takes a bit to get gcam working...I had to go into /system/system/framework/ and in there you'll see 4 different camera .jar files...I just made them .bak files and gcam now works

    Sorry that it took an extra day beyond what I'd planned guys. Here's RR compiled from today's source: Google Drive

    Finished building this shortly ago and haven't yet had time to test yet, so if anyone beats me to it, please let me know if you run into any trouble. Gapps are not included in this build.

    :highfive:

    update:
    - Found one main issue: wifi is disabled on every reboot. I updated to latest firmware thinking that might help, but it remains disabled on every reboot. if anyone has advice for fixing that let me know; not sure if it's an issue with the ROM or more likely an issue with which firmware i'm using (july firmware). Maybe kernel.
    - Gapps installation went fine with opengapps latest nano package
    - Running latest neutrino kernel with this & patched w/ magisk
    - Touchscreen sensitivity is not very sensitive when you flash, until you go into settings / about phone / touchscreen settings and simply change the sensitivity. You can change it back as well if you want. I have not noticed a major difference in any of the values personally.
