***This is no more "Cardinal Xtended". We have moved from Cardinal and starting from zero as "MSM Xtended or MSM-X".
We have tried our best to blend it with all available options, features and stability of different ROMs in to one for better user experience.
The Base is AOSP & GZOSP and thus Special Thanks to @martinusbe & Team GZR for the same.***

@Rakesh.Batra - Our Teacher. Learned a lot from you Dada

1) Please do not use TiB. If you want use then try Swift Backup or Migrate. These are better options for now.
2) Please Use Paid Themes preferably, so that Substratum Dev can keep on their good work.
3) If you want to try a new theme, try "Valerie" by bro @@DeadmanxXD. It's been my favorite ever since I tried it.
4) If you earn well, then don't hesitate to donate a few $$ to the devs you like. Its token of appreciation and will keep the devs motivated.

Screen goes dark sometimes, and cannot wake the phone. screen lights up (black) but lock screen does not appear!

Hey, Found many bugs, despite fact that I followed installation guide:
- Automatic brightness is not working.
- The fingerprint scanner is not working, I installed zip file from the description and it did not help.
- After the change of font in lockscreen clock, rr was required to apply changes.
Overall good looking rom, but boot animation is not pretty for me. I'll get back to oreo roms for now i guess.

    Thank you @Saksham Singh for this super smooth update compared to earlier builds.
    One can experience the improvements and smoothness in this build right from initial setting of device...No lags at all...More customization options are added which are working fine...
    One minor thing...When data is disabled, still it shows network traffic indicators in the status bar...
    More to be added...
    BHIM app is still not working...
    Great Job! Tons of customizations, almost as many as the oreo one. Gcam too working flawlessly. Bluetooth calling is working fine, call record option is also available. One bug, cannot transfer files from via usb.
    great work guys!
    Waiting for build XP-2 v5-5
    Finally, v3 for land
    Please fix the blank screen issue after locking the phone... This ROM is awesome in everything only this bug is annoying me ☹️☹️☹️
    Goto Settings-Xtenison-animation-screen off animations select simple fade..
