[MT6580] Dark ROM 14.1 for MT6580 Kernel 3.18.19 Nougat 7.1.2

Dark ROM 14.1 for MT6580 Kernel 3.18.19
(Last Updated On: June 2, 2018)


Dark ROM 14.1 for MT6580 Kernel 3.18.19 is based on Lineage OS with Android Nougat version of 7.1.2. The ROM is still running on Marshmallow kernel, i.e 3.18.19 and all the major bugs have been fixed. This ROM can be ported to any device with chipset MT6580 & kernel 3.18.19. The porting guide is given below with download link below. The ROM has been officially ported for TECNO_W4.

From Dark ROM 14.1 Team:

I’m building an extra lean LineageOS 14.1 ROM for hammerhead with a few added features. A lot of packages have been stripped down, only the bare minimum is built to provide a fast and stable ROM. That gives you much more freedom as you can install exactly what you really want from the Playstore. You can install most of the missing packages manually, they are available in a flashable zip on the server (see second post).

My approach for DARK ROM 14.1 is slightly different than for DARK ROM 13, as I try to add as many Pixel features as possible while keeping a solid LineageOS base.
