    To start, it will resemble PureNexus, but will move away from that with time. Solo development is kinda hard. Lol

    I'm curious why you aren't porting Steel Droid to the 6P ?

    Starting fresh. And it will be a different system to build on. Looks won't be exactly the same, but this time I have a high end phone to build on. Smoother UI, better battery, and high res display, all come with the device already.

    Port, not so much. Reinvent, absolutely!

    Awesome - looking forward to it.

    I had an issue with Pure Nexus, maybe you can find it, if Mr. Beans hasn't.

    Voice and Data did not work simultaneously. I flashed Clean Core, basically stock - just de-bloated and it works now.
    Going on a testing and flashing binge - trying to figure out what works with TWRP and the Vendor partition.

    Gonna try Sinless, updated PureNexus and Chroma. I'm hoping for a better notification pulldown implementation.
    Sure wish I had the skill to port Lidroids toggles and lose the marshmallow toggles altogether.

    I am in need of a tester for the 6P. Specifically, someone who can help me debug a problem with my source.

    Im having an issue with one of my apps not showing up in the Settings menu anymore, and for the life of me, I cant figure out why. It shows in the app drawer just fine, and can be launched from there with no issue, but doesnt show in the Settings menu.

    I'm willing! You may have to give me some instruction if I need to capture data for you. I have work from 07:00 - 03:30 PST
    and need a working phone, but I can be ready to flash as soon as I'm off the clock
