Moto G5S Plus AIM Oreo Custom ROM is officially released and is the first Android 8.0 based ROM which has few glitches and is hoped to be solved soon.
AIMROM is based on AOSP and the developers aim to provide an experience with unmatched stability, performance and a better battery life. The customizations and the features are hand-picked by the team members and the testers. They ensure the authentic taste and full experience of Android.
We have used this ROM earlier and found it to be good but not that happening which we want. We all know AIM ROM’s are based on AOSP and gives the stock feelings to us but this definitely didn’t win our hearts so far. We at Techolite never give any bias reviews and always point out the things which we like and don’t like.
The general Moto G5S Plus AIM Oreo Custom ROM features network traffic indicators, quick settings rows and columns, toast animations, volume rocker keys changing the soundtrack and much more.
DISCLAIMER: Rooting or installing custom ROM’s breaks the warranty on the device. Please be advised that if you are unlocking your bootloader or installing a custom recovery then you are solely responsible for the loss. Techolite and its authors are not responsible for any loss and we credit the authors respectfully.
