Announcement from ECr34T1v3: Official AospExtended Pie for riva

 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Read the whole OP! Be respectful to each other and don't ask for ETAs, it's considered as being rude!

AOSP Extended is an AOSP based ROM which provides stock UI/UX with various customizations features along with the Substratum theme engine.

I guess there is nothing wrong in reading facts!

-Base Of the ROM & Version?
->Rom is based on AOSP.

-Why no "Incremental/Delta updates" Support?
->Actually the updates we provide monthly are heavily changed and modified than the previous builds. New stuff is merged and added. So we don't provide incremental updates and recommend a clean flash.

-Does this ROM Support Substratum?
->Yes, full Substratum support!

-Which Gapps are recommended?

-How do I root this ROM?
->We recommend Magisk

-Will this ROM relock the bootloader?

-What about XPOSED?
->XPOSED is still in beta stage. We like Xposed but it messes up with the system so before giving any bug reports make sure you have Xposed uninstalled.

-When Will Be the Next Update?
->No ETAs, please. ROM Will be updated whenever the new build is ready by your maintainer. We generally provide monthly updates with latest security patches and new features.

-I am facing FCs, Bugs, Some feature is broken?

Hi, thanks for officially bringing AEX for riva. I flashed your latest build around 2-3 hours ago and switched back to my backup afterwards. I was on the go, needed wifi tethering, so I couldn't fetch some logs for you. The wifi tethering and usb tethering is bugged. Tried both, both of them successfully connected but no internet connection from the device was transferring to my laptop. After a minute or less of being connected, suddenly the phone's systemUI crashes and reopens. After it reopens, the battery on the statusbar shows 0% and everything freezes (touchscreen stops responding) which ended up forcing me to do a force reboot (holding the powe button).

First I thought it was because I flashed latest inferno kernel, but after restoring stock aex kernel (the same bug persists) and then after that doing a clean flash with just the rom and magisk, still the tethering is bugged.

Other than that, without using tethering, the rom is stable enough to use. I tested one game, and it ran smoothly the same as my previous rom (NOS Pie). Overall I had no issues, except for tethering. Tested arnova's GCam Mod, and it worked the same as my previous roms.

Once again, thank you for bringing AEX riva. Rooting for the updates and fixes. Kudos!
