Thanks for this update. It's good to know that you keep this ROM up to date.

However the stock firmware used as base here offers multi-windows but has problems with app switching when multiple windows are not used.

The previous kasty custom rom is working fine for the M8 Pro 3G, so there is no great incentive for me to try something new.

I'll test a kasty update when serious issues like this app-switching bug are fixed in stock.

Thank you very much for your trouble! Good build, but there are also disadvantages. My modem is constantly falling off :-( . But in general, everything is fine! Tell me, do not expect a new work? Can the new assembly will be?
