Dirty Unicorns is a custom ROM built with stability in mind and optional customization. The idea to start this ROM began out of pure boredom around 4.1.2 on the EVO 3D and later turned into a form of an addiction (a good one) to see where we could go from there. We have since expanded to more devices to include the HTC One, Nexus 5, SGS4 and many more. We quickly realize that users loved what we were doing as well as other developers because it was done the right way. We've always had fun doing it and take pride in knowing that we've done it without having to bug the end user for donations to pay for server costs and/or any of those sob stories you hear. This ROM is 100 percent free and will remain that way.

Those wanting to use our ROM as a base are more the welcomed to do so but please maintained the credits/thanks below, do not ask for donations as it wouldn't be fair to do so considering and let us know as we often like to contribute to other projects.



As stated above, we love to maintain authorship but we also like to publicly praise those that have helped us along the way with our wonderful project. With that said, this wouldn't be possible without the work and help of those listed below THANK YOU ALL!!

| OmniROM | AOKP | CM | ChaOS | Paranoid Android | Slim ROMs | Preludedrew | Team Black Out | Official Testers / Translators |

Please check our gerrit/github for full credits/thanks of individual contributors

Believe it or not, we are human and we do forget things. If we have left someone out of the credit/thanks list, just PM us and we'll gladly add on to the list.

Let's make a few things clear.

I won't give ETA's because I can't give them. There will be new stuff added (even if it's visual but "under the hood") and that means that it could break something. Fixing it could be easy but it can be hard.

This also means that it could take weeks before a new version is online but it could also be online in a couple days. There's not a schedule. I try to built weekly. And even when there isn't a new version in weeks, it doesn't mean that I'm doing nothing. I'm always busy and when it's ready you'll see a new version.

I hope that I've informed you well enough. If you still have questions, feel free to ask.



Thanks for your patience. :)

FAQ

I cannot flash 4.4, I get an error on recovery about Status 7
You need to install CWM latest recovery. Philz or any other wont work. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2200501

ART does not work, I get FC everywhere
Art is in development, latest PA GAPPS will work, Titanium Backup, Skype, SuperSU wont. Latest Whatspp version doesnt work but this one does https://www.cubby.com/pl/WhatsApp-2-...f482a17a4a9e19
If you want stabilty switch to dalvik.
Somepeople have reported to have root working on ART by flashing 1.65 SuperSU update and setting it to always grant root. Try it at your own risk

How can I enable ART?
Developer settings

Im having problems with my keyboard
Try clearing the keyboard data or switch to another keyboard

My extFAT sdcard does not work
Install an other kernel

I get FC on gapps when flashing a new version
Reflash gapps everytime you flash a new version, its the safest way atm

I dont like the ribbons, its redundant
Wait

The battery icon ribbon is out of place. Plz fix it
Its WIP

Calendar does not sync
Use the Calendar from the Play Store

How can I restore SMS?
by @Goretto
About restoring SMS, follow these steps:
- Go back to your previous rom (you did a nandroid backup, right?)
- Backup your SMS with SMS Backup and Restore
- Flash CM11 (V1 or V2 + fix, up to you)
- Restore your SMS with SMS Backup and Restore but first make sure that SMS Backup and Restore is set as the default SMS App under settings. Once restored, you can set whichever SMS app you want as default (Messages, Hangouts or third party)

Google Now does not work
Your country may not be supported by Google Now, try to use a VPN

Saying "Ok google" Does not work
Change google now lenguage to "English(US)"

Difference between normal gapps and PA Gapps?
PA Gapps are compatible with ART, it also has more apps (look at file size)




For are your bug reports and feature requests please use Jira:

The rom could not possibly have been more perfect, apart from a little graphical glitch in the battery tile in quick settings where battery percentage becomes invisible due to it being too far down on the tile, speed is wonderful, and now i will test battery life and whatever i have seen so far i am already liking it. Great work and thanx
