    If you like the ROM or the TWRP recovery brought to you by these developer(s) then consider donation to them. Believe me it motivates and it matters too.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY HAVE MANY MORE BUGS THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Galaxy J2 (j2lte) may require the bootloader to be unlocked, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider a complete backup. You are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by YOU.

    Hi dude, I admire your work and I would like to test it on my smartphone, but I have some unknowns that need to be clarified to give way.

    Does this work with the G532M? (Samsung J2 Prime or Grand Prime +)

    I will apply the ROM for daily use, will the ROM give me some kind of problem?

    Do you work with all networks? (Including 4G and LTE)
