Recently, senior XDA member, Xaif, shared an official build of AospExtended 5.7 for the first Nexus 5 model Hammerhead. Once Android 8.1 Oreo was rolled out, Google also launched the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Now, AOSP Extended ROM is based on this AOSP source code which includes special features selected from numerous other projects. Since it’s based on AOSP, this custom ROM is super smooth and has little to no lags in its running.

For the future, the developers of AOSP Extended intend to add new tweaks to make the experience even better! AOSP Extended offers features such as status bar, lock screen customization, theme support, AOSPA Pie, and much more.

The ROM is a preliminary build and we don’t see any major issues expect for the limited Gapps package which is currently available. Anyway, no one can stop a oreo-hungry Nexus user, so grab the ROM from the download link below and flash it.
