    Descendant is a customised Android ROM that focuses on enhancing UX and UI
    over stock Android along useful features.


    Head to the download page.




    Same as any ROM.
    Do the necessary wipes and flash the ROM.
    No wipes are needed between updates from Descendant itself, unless specified.


    Listing all the additions would be a huge wall of text, that you wouldn't even read.
    So, head over the Telegram group and feel free to lurk.

    Preloaded applications
    Google Apps are included.


    Having a bug or not booting for whatever reason?
    Look for "How to report bugs" on this post.
    Bug reports without logs will be ignored.
