So, it’s been since 6 Dec that I have been using Android Ice Cold Project (AICP) based on Android 7.1.1. Here’s the latest build:
Note that the build includes the Jan 5, 2017, Android security update. The monthly updates are incorporated promptly. AICP is based on what was CyanogenMod 14.1, which is now Lineage OS, a solid base upon which to build a customized ROM.
AICP dailies have been very stable and improving in function. There were some camera loading issues early on, but those are gone. At this point, I have to problems with the ROM at all.
Meanwhile, Lenovo is still promising to deliver a stock 7.1.1 sometime this year. Yep, not holding my breath. Even if Lenovo does eventually release a 7.1.1 stock ROM, I don’t see leaving AICP. The customizations are awesome, and the regular security updates are not matched by Lenovo.
I’m very happy with AICP and thoroughly enjoy its customizations and stability.
