    That's actually really great to hear! Good news, thanks for reporting back but NO. Data swipe is the normal factory reset wipe instead of selecting any advanced options

    Once we get the Oreo tree down & working, I'll be posting every possible Oreo ROM that'll build. There's a few new ROMs most ppl don't even know about yet, Lol... :cool:

    @bcrichster quick question does AEX still has that weird lib problem? Last time i installed it, it was working flawlessly but some apps gave me a pop-up about some Lib file missing. Im still on ViperOS (So far the fastest & stable rom in my opinion).

    I'm honestly not sure about the lib error.. Never seen it. Can you give me an example and/or screenshot of what you're referring to? There is also a possibility of corrupted gapps / DL's.
    Edit: Hopefully my build isn't giving that error, Lol

    Sure will post screenshot as soon as possible. But oddly enough it never appeared on any google apps. One of the few apps that i did use that said pop-up showed up was epsxe

    I've never heard of that app either, Lol. Oh! Is it an app from/for an older OS? If so, that could have something to do with it, but at this time the lib error thing you mentioned is kinda new to me..

    I thought the same thing as well because it never affected perfomance or stablity the rom itself was working flawlessly. It was just that nitpicking thing that showed up

    If you can upload or link a copy of the app, I can check its manifest to see what Android version it came from..

    Edit: If ya do, Plz send it via PM

    Oh wow.. OK, apparently the app is a PlayStation emulator geared for Android version 2.3 Froyo to 4.x KK. I guess the last update was for better KitKat compatibility. Plus, I keep seeing references to Xperia OS's Launcher in the files. That isn't saying that it WON'T work on newer and different OS's but it DOES say it was geared towards much older Android devices.. You could try the paid version from the playstore but I'm thinking it's just the app itself being severely outdated and not made compatible to the newer security patches and whatnot.

    Oh i see.. but you are right even if its missing said lib files the emulator works 100% (Did a 100% run of Metal gear solid) i made the issue aware because it only happens on AEX i tried every rom in here and AEX is the only one where said messages appears. I researched the lib that it said was missing & so far its nothing groundbreaking.

    The only one.. Have you tried all ROMs so far? Now ya have me curious, Lol. Also, which lib is it missing? We may be able to find it somewhere and manually install it for future releases..

    Edit: Not a guarantee but is a thought..

    OK.. Seems like an app specific issue but makes me wonder why only AEX does it, there has to be a common denominator since all the lib placements changed with LP 5.0+ and stuff.. Got me wondering, thanks @Francisco87

    No problem. Epsxe is not the only app but almost everyother emulator has the same lib problem. But oddly enough like i said it does not affect perfomance in anyway. It might be something dumb but still it never hurts to check

    OP updated with a cpl more obscure but excellent ROMs!
    ~ CrDroid, with June 5, 2018 security patch (It's LOADED!!)
    ~ Something called Hexagon ROM. Security patch is a bit old but the Rom is actually kinda cool.
    ~ Also, AquariOS has just been replaced (same security patch).. one more down and 2 more to go!
