    - Playstore
    - Etc.

    Whats not working:
    - Blue led is powered off after bootloader starts kernel (minor issue, will fix in future)

    Whats new:
    - New bootloader compiled from source
    *selinux permisive
    *auto multiboot function:
    (example: -libreelec- just put kernel.img and dtb.img to boot from external devices like sdcard or usb)
    (example: -armbian- to boot linux the bootloader will serch for s905_autoscript on sd or usb)

    - New kernel compiled from source

    As Android Oreo for S905 is quite new there may be some bags.
    What bugs? I cant find all bugs by myself so, if there is a bug please report and i will try to fix it for future versions.
    Firmware is Rooted.
    Also i changed the default UI resolution to 720p for performance.
    If you wish to have UI in 1080p you need to change /vendor/mesondisplay.cfg and also /system/build.prop lcd.density to 240.
