    THIS IS AN INITIAL TEST BUILD WHICH BOOTS BUT HAS MANY MORE BUGS THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. HIS CANNOT BE USED AS A DAILY DRIVER IN ANYWAY. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM may require unlocking the bootloader on Infinix Hot Note, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
