Default [Omni][4.4.1] Q&A / General thread [i9305]



I think we all need some non-developmental talk about Omni ROM, therefore I've created this thread

Thanks to mcampbellsmith for his work!

Here is well-known Omni DEVELOPMENT thread: CLICK

You are welcome to post here any screenshots, discussions, questions, your own impressions, reviews and everything that comes to your mind!


Installation

If coming from any other rom:
  • Flash one of these recoveries - CWM - TWRP - Philz*
  • Reboot recovery
  • Wipe everything (/data, /system, /cache, dalvik cache) / factory reset
  • Flash your chosen Omni nightly
  • Flash your chosen Gapps for 4.4.1 (for example these - Bank's Gapps - PA Gapps)
  • Reboot to system
  • You are done!
* Tested myself, works well.


If updating from earlier nightly:
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Wipe cache
  • Flash your chosen Omni nightly

Additional important info

You may need to install supersu to get root access: CLICK (flash in recovery and ready to use)

Changelogs for Omni nigthlies:
General - CLICK
Gerrit - CLICK
Github - Device - Kernel

I'm not sure if it's possible to remove this button at the moment.. Maybe search for some Xposed module capable of doing that. GravityBox module made OMNI KitKat almost perfect for me

Hi

I need root, so I installed SuperSU from play store
But it couldn't update the SU binary - installation failed
Can someone help me to have root access, please?

Many thanks

In dev thread it says 'if you need root, please install supersu'

I've searched in settings and dev tools, there might be a toggle or something similar to enable root, but I couldn't find it

If you know how, then please give a helping hand

And I'm using the latest nightly..

Many thanks

This is where i got the impression that the ROM had root enabled by default.



What app are you trying to access with root?

Hi, doing some research on this rom and I have a couple of questions ;

How stable is the Omnirom LTE?

Has anyone got a video of it in action?
