It's really impressive!

Could you tell what works/what doesn't and list of bugs of this MM version? (and link to download it)

No issues with calling, 2G/3G, wifi, bluetooth, hotspot, photos/videos, 3D,... sensors?

Any things that are not supported by it? Xposed, Gravitybox, Greenify, FakeWifi, Good For Enterprise / Root Hide,...?

What about apps on sdcard? Using /storage/sdcard1 by default for moving apps using stock menus?

Can it be flashed with TWRP or need different recovery?

I'm still on modded 4.2.2 (for best performance and no bugs at all), but looks like many things start to have dependency on LP & up that are going to force me for upgrade soon (not the phone, cause it's still great, but just the Android version).

The image above has No xposed modules to achieve that...

I've done minor modifications (implement workarounds) In order to fix a few things,  such as sd card issues, usb/mtp persistent notification on s/bar,  network (data on sim 1) drops during and after  calls (on sim 2) etc.

In case u use greenify, you ll get this short of readings..

General instructions are in Tribetmen 's github. 

I've applied these instructions on coolpad and on pure nexus rom. 

(decompile classes, modify phonebase.java, recompile)

It's really tempting to try.

 

Are those things listed:

Quote

External fm radio speaker
After call Network drops using hands-free buttons.

the only remaining issues experienced?

 

As I really need now Android SDK/API Level >=21 for apps really implemented, I'm going to give it a try in next weeks & let it stay (probably forever) if everything works (I need to have reliable calls, 2G, 3G & WIFI, Hotspot, Wireless display (Miracast), GPS - working like on stock ROMs, not bad Camera, 3D & Video, Xposed, Greenify, GoodForEnterprise, GravityBox, ADB WIFI, apps on external sdcard... etc. stuff).

Btw. what do you think about Bravia Engine & sound boosters?

I have these on 4.2.2 and I think I would miss that (especially Bravia Engine that greatly enhances display colors) when I'll change ROM.

What's currently the most stable (having no issues or at least no major issues/with workarounds and rooted) LP or MM ROM for F1 now?

Pure Nexus by Jpower73 or something else?

Both Miui and CoolUI are nice and I wish to use one of them, but currenly higher Android version is a required for most of the apps.

I would also interested in this question. Because of problems in Android version KitKat such as laggy scrolling and unsmoothness during several actions, I do not want to stay on 4.4. I found applications on 5.0+ versions far more optimized.

Well, I would stay with 4.2.2 as it's perfect for me on this phone - everything fast and smooth, no bugs at all, but Google and app devs raise the Android OS version requirenentas - eh, can't edit that word to fix it.

4.4 unsmooth? Well have you tried holding home button and removeing stuff from ceche?

Cause that is only problem with this phone, too many stuff in background, makes it no good for big multitasking

Thanks a lot! This LINEAGE OS 13.0 (MM) ROM is really good and your screenshots howto was very useful! I haven't noticed it earlier.

So far just spent on it ~24h - playing with it all the time with messing & fixing back & configuring stuff in similar way as I had it on 4.2.2, but so far so good and even upgrade from 4.2.2 to 6.0.1 directly went smooth and so far everything what I couldn't run on 4.2.2 & 4.4 works fine now, even stuff that interacts with low level API functions/libs, like Android 5.1+ camera apps (ProShot).

Just few suggestions for next releases:

- get rid of Android O-Nfy or get a working release - sooner or later it makes bootloop on SystemUI continuous restarts (I lost many hours finding what made me bootloop with uninstall&reinstall of Xposed & all the modules that I had configured to find which one was broken and it was all by Android O-Nfy, which I haven't even touched - I had to remove this APK from /system/app and problems disappeared - disabling it didn't help, needed to remove it)

- Nova Launcher 5.3 is available now, with Google Companion plugin & Tesla Unread, so worth to consider

 

And few remarks for comparing with 4.2.2:

- ROM is fast and everything seems to work fine, out of the box, looks like it were official upgrade (but of course I know it wasn't)

- Photos are less pretty - less contrast & saturation (not as bad as I thought it will be, but still worse than on stock 4.2.2 with it's stock Coolpad camera app), but I'm going to play with Snap camera settings so maybe it will get better

- OpenGL ES is slower (tested shortly in Asphalt 8), but not that bad (probably comparable with 4.4 ROMs)

- so far everything that required Android 5.1+ or 6+ works fine (and now more apps are available in Google Play Store)

- battery seems to drain slower than on really slimmed 4.2.2 (I didn't know it's possible)

- feeling like got new phone :-) at least this phone has got new life :-)

 

need to do more testing then I will provide more feedback later

Well, dont get me wrong, but this is personal thing, and anyone who want to use it can install it on his own

I dont like nova for example :D

 

But nice job on comparing 4.2.2 and 6.0.1,
