Bliss-caf is CAF based, optimized, and includes the most features out of all our branches. More features and devices are being added weekly to this branch. It will be the most updated.

Bliss-decaf is AOSP based, slimmed down, optimized, and included a ton of extra features added in from various roms, and we will continue to add more as they become available. We will keep up to date with the latest AOSP code, and updates will be posted on a regular basis, but not as often as out Bliss-CAF branch.

Bliss-x86 is our Bliss for PC project, will have a few PC centric extras added in to help with application compatibility, mouse integration, keyboard shortcuts, tc. And we have added a few little linux throwbacks like bash and busybox commands, integrated Terminal and much more.

#9 Fjandson, Jan 4, 2018
Glad to hear it, Thanks for responding. Was starting to wonder!!
#10 bcrichster, Jan 4, 2018
Oh snap, I'm on the TMO stock room. Not metro. Maybe that's why it's not working for me. I'll flash back to metro and see if that fixes my problem, lol....
I still want to flash Bliss....
#11 lotzakritters, Jan 4, 2018

#12 The-Truth, Jan 8, 2018

#14 Fjandson, Jan 15, 2018
Ahhhh got few issues goin on not with youre rom. need a better way to get ahold of ya. Cant jump on messenger Not sure why. maybe U still have my # idk
#15 The-Truth, Jan 15, 2018
SMS sent
#16 bcrichster, Jan 16, 2018
Well, I already get disconnected LTE and there no APN setting so that what causing since there a way to fix it.
#17 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 16, 2018
There no APN setting to fix the disconnected issue
#18 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 16, 2018
Have ya looked in Dev Tools?
#19 bcrichster, Jan 17, 2018
Nope and I can't find the dev tool but only dev option
#20 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 17, 2018
Ok.. I see that you done have it while the Warp Sync DOES have APN change capability. And I dunno why atm. Might look into Metro/Tmo APN.zips
#21 bcrichster, Jan 17, 2018
thank since other ROM did have it but I have to say this rom look perfect and very unique. If you made a ROM for umidigi s2 pro then it already becoming a monster phone since it cost $300 for high spec.
#22 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 18, 2018
tbh lineage had it for zte zmax so
#23 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 18, 2018
I forgot to tell you there no metro/tmo APN zip if I could remember but there was one but didn't work.
#24 KefkaPalazzo92, Jan 18, 2018
  • Bliss is no longer CM/LineageOS based starting with Nougat.
  • Find me the correct APN's and I'll look into making you guys a flashable.
  • Something to consider: Certain modem versions of Zmax can give issues, @Relyt2012 has mentioned (somewhere) the best ones that work for custom ROMs.
