A fledgling development

Available for download on XDA, this ROM is still far from stable, and it is not recommended to download it for everyday use. Indeed, apart from the bugs that might occur, many elements have not yet been fully implemented and do not work at all, as the camera, sensors, video acceleration, but not only.

Still in its infancy, this version of the ROM is only available from this weekend and essentially serves to lay the foundation. Improvements are of course waiting over updates in the coming weeks.
