A couple of posts ago, I wrote about how I installed CyanogenMod on my M8. Of course, when I had everything all setup, the Cyanogen servers go down. The Cyanogen team said that they would go down on New Years Eve, but they were shutdown on Christmas. First time I’ve seen them ahead of schedule! I had 2 options: wait for the Lineage servers to go up, or switch ROMs. I chose the latter.
I had plenty of choices, but few of them supported Android Nougat on the M8. I had heard great things about Resurrection Remix, so I gave it a chance on my phone. In short, I liked it so much that I decided to keep it as the main ROM on my phone. It reminds me of stock Android, yet everything doesn’t seem hard coded like Android usually is. You have full control of the navigation bar, status bar, notifications, tiles, animations, and more. I installed Nova Launcher for more customization. So far it has served me well!
