It is not stable CFW. It is composed of various parts from other CFW that just a mix. There are currently no firmware debug 4.55 dex so DEX contributions of this CFW is based on older files as DEX 4.50 or lower.

In summary, it is dangerous to install if you do not have a flash chip.

Hishamage is the same team that SGK anyway.

Federic, you're a scientist ... Maybe if you speak in English someone understands you. But no you can not make the change from OFW 4.31. only 3.55.
