    I tried this ROM and system didn’t even boot. I kept seeing the boot animation.

    Looks like TayX has realized that and removed the build.

    Hope he gets us a newer working build soon.

    Thanks.

    Looks great. Mobile data and camera don’t work.

    Confirming about mobile data. Does NOT work. I double checked that all basic settings are good (the phone is not in “airplane mode”, celular data enabled). Also found AT&T support article for setting the APN values and followed it. Rebooted. Wiped cache/Dalvik cache. The mobile data does not work, the signal strength icon shows no signal. However, the voice and text services are working great!
    I have not gotten to test the camera yet since there is no pre-installed camera app and
    I’m cut out of mobile internet.
    Flashlight icon is grayed out and does not engage the flashlight (expected by release warning).
    Bluetooth WORKS!!! (unexpected, the release warning says it should not). Yay!

    Everything else is great so far. My 3 years old battery lost 25% of the charge during the day. I used to plug the phone to charge twice a day!

    I am using OpenGapps 8.0 unofficial release (the link to official release site shows 7.1 version as highest). Hopefully this mobile data issue is not coming from using opengapps unofficial.

    Any suggestions how to fix mobile data or what to expect on that matter?

    Anything I can do to help the project? I speak russian and ukrainian, but I’m not a programmer.
