I made a phone call. There was nothing on my screen
- Make sure to make the new phone app & messages app as default from Settings> Default app settings

TWRP freezed during ROM flashing
- Read the instructions from op you need to use TWRP with graphical flashing support you will find download link there

I am getting a bootloop
- If you can't boot your phone you're probably doing it wrong, follow op instructions exactly as listed above
- Wipe data (Factory Reset from TWRP: Wipe > Swipe to Factory Reset)

Has anybody gotten this to work with TWRP on the XZ1? The only working TWRP that I know if for our phone is the one by Modpunk and that doesn't support Aroma files.

Can't believe it, I was waiting for a ROM like this for a year! Would be avaiable for XZ1 Dual? Thanks a lot!

I wish I could try this ROM but the problem is I intend to sell it soon and unless there's a way to relock or at least hide "boatloader unlocked warning", I won't be able to do so.

It's based on Janjan's kernel .205 so i suppose the answer is "yes"!
But if you test with another (older than .205) let us know!!
Maybe you should quote the dev to know more about!!

Feedback would be nice for this. I doubt it works unless someone knows how to make an aroma file work with Modpunk's TWRP...?
