    the OS is awesome!

    but I found some bugs…

    1 – Apps who use camera feature normally uses ZXing (and it’s not optional). ZXing can’t autofocusing (even by touch or configuring autofocus).
    2 – MTP crashes are frequent, principally with built in file explorer.

    thx 4 that great work
