I think there has been problems with libhybris and Android 8+ devices. And of course it's a lot of work.
OP3 is on its way. I have heard that after that they maybe will try the OP5.
If you want to give it a try. I image many users will be thankful.
So, stupid n00b question..... Will I be able to work on this in a virtual machine or even a dual boot environment, or will I have to dedicate my device to the UB porting? If the latter is the case, then I won't be able to attempt it...
