    This is Wileyfox Swift Nougat ROM (7.0, AOSP ROM) flashing guide. Since the Android Nougat Source code release, till now we have many Android Nougat ROMs available for various devices like Xperia M, LG Optimus G, Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and many more. And now this time the Nougat ROM (build number: NRD90M) has arrived to Wileyfox Swift (crackling).

    THIS MIGHT BE AN ALPHA ROM AND MIGHT NOT BE USED AS A DAILY DRIVER SOFTWARE. CHECK THE WORKING AND NON-WORKING LIST BEFORE FLASHING AND PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    DISCLAIMER:
    Installing a custom ROM on a the Wileyfox Swift requires the bootloader to be unlocked, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
