NOTE:

This may be a dead duck in the water before it even installs due to the fact Samsung currently seem to be locking bootloaders on all recent devices even devices with previously unlocked bootloaders.

BEFORE attempting to install this software please ensure you have the stock firmware available (this can be found on updato.com) and that you are able to flash it with Odin.

Sucks that no one is reporting anything, but tbh in europe it seems that only the A8 (A530f) has been released so far.

Do you think it would be easy to port for that model ? I think there's a couple of us waiting for this port, would be much appreciated and would test it asap.

Well samsung mtp isn't in a8+ defconfig i just looked. So post your device tree and the partition layout and fstab from stock kernel and I will see if I can help.
I know it isn't which is why it isn't included.
Seems like they are forcing their own driver.
There is probably a way to fix it by modifying the make files, but I won't spend any more time on it until people can be bothered to take the time to respond.
