* Disclaimer 
* 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 blame me in any way for what happens to your device, I will laugh at you.
* BOOM! goes the dynamite


***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.
