Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.

s It is true that double tap does not work to wake up or to suspend the device. I have to say that it is fantastic in operation. I appreciate the effort for the dedication thanks

This ROM is hella good about everything but battery only by using chrome by 5minutes it drains 7% of battery.

I don't know what you're doing but your setup might be messing with something.
My Cepheus is actually acting fine battery wise.
Please, try a clean flash with the latest update and do not setup any Magisk module and report back.

Have a nice one!

Clean flash performed, no magisk or any additional zip flashed, just installed and installed all my daily stuff, also TWRP can't correctly decrypt phone. In few days I'll clean flash do again, however this is lil bit weird

Regarding decryption, this is known stuff.
TWRPs can't still decrypt our /data yet AFAIK.

Let me know, I'll be glad tohelp.

since a few days just left when I did clean install again I can say it's better and worse in some cases. I don't know what the heck is with my phone nor my instalation but, as previously said battery drain, for now its better but not the best, 2 hours of doing nothing 20% are gone, maybe there is too many apps in bg or some doze just dont work. i dont know, while using navi there is quite simillar battery drain maybe lil higher but it's normal I think.
I think this is pros regarding to previus state but now there are another problems.
From time to time screen just turns black and there is nothing I can do other than force reboot. It happens most while using Navi but just 40minutes ago it happend while charging on Qi. Weird...
For now this is everything, maybe it has a lil bit slower Fingerprint scanner than previously but actually this isnt most important since I use pin more often. Tommorow I may be able to send ss from baterry drain
