Huawei Honor 5X Halogen OS 7 Android 7.1.1 Nougat Custom ROM

XOS is a new generation Android-based cutting-edge OS based on the Android Open Source Project and Code Aurora Forum releases.

What is XOS?

Halogen OS, also known as XOS is a new Android ROM which ships with the global aim to become a modular ROM which keeps as high as potentially possible operating performance on your mobile device while still maintaining a sufficient feature base of nice, small and minimal features that would not be available via any external feature base, extension, mod or plugin. We hope you have a truly halogenified experience!
Internals of XOS
At core, the ROM is composed mainly of components from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and Code Aurora Forum (CAF), with extremely minor set of components from LineageOS (LaOS or LN) which have been added to source in order to allow for better cross-device compatibility.
