As you can imagine, this ROM is in very early development and therefore there is a list of things not working right now including Bluetooth, Flashlight, FM Radio and the dialler. However, it’s impressive to see what is already working including GSM, Wi-Fi, camera, GPS and NFC and, of course, native Nougat features such as split-screen. If you have an old Xperia S lying around, you may want to give it a try – the full instructions can be found at the source link below.
