Whenever AEX will release a New update, I will try to Update the GSI as soon as possible, so please don't ask ETAs.
home button not working on the One Plus 5, but thats not you. My home button doesnt even work on the GSI that build for my own devices.. It booted up ok. nothing crashed. just dont have a home button. I know how to work around that. Pico gapps installed, magisk is working. the sony framework and music player worked. viper works. I will try a call tomorrow, my other phone is in the bedroom with my wife. I'm going to send you a PM. I have a couple of questions less related to your rom in specific and more related to GSI in general. thanks for this by the way.
