11. Misc

* Graphic Glitches

Some custom recoveries may display texts and images incorrectly while installing GomdoLight. You may find it harder to installing GomdoLight on such custom recoveries primarily due to unnecessary texts overlaid on the GomdoLight Installer UI. However this does not make installation impossible, and has no effects on your device once the installation is complete.

IV. To Unroot Later


Use the ‘disable.root‘ Flag after installing GomdoLight if you do not want root.
