(and most in-jokey)

And to prove it, here's our glorious logo, illustrated by my super creative friend:


tl;dr it's AOSP with PA's 4.3 PIE ported. (That's the good one, not the new one).
I've been running this build since the 9th of February and haven't had any problems.

You need unlocked bootloader (duh). Need the latest TWRP or CWM recovery.
Flash like any other zip.

Camera fix
Bug AOSP causes video recordings to have a green line along the bottom. This is fixed by replacing /system/lib/libmmcamera_interface.so with the one from the factory image (attached to this post).

Thanks for your attention.

===============

BaNkS GApps recommended.

Features:
  • Based on the AOSP kitkat-dev android_4.4.4_r2.0.1 branch. Not based on other ROMs and no wholesale merges from other ROMs, so as stable as stock!
  • PIE from ParanoidAndroid Jelly Bean (with floating notifications, which are missing in PA's 4.4 PIE)
  • Flash from other ROMs without wiping data (not guaranteed to work, but it tries, unlike other ROMs)
  • Flashes in under 15 seconds (optimised system formatting)
  • Modified koush's open source Superuser
  • Command line tools: busybox, rsync
  • (Developers) Fixed Eclipse project
  • Ad blocking hosts file
  • Expanded desktop (NOT immersive mode) (activate from power menu)

Coming soon(tm):
  • Super cool plugin system

Screenshots:







Feedback highly appreciated.

I tried the new PIE straight after it was released. Was sorely disappointed at how lacking it is compared to the old one, and I saw some reddit comments of the same opinion, so I released this.

The hosts file is merged from the first few results when searching for ad blocking hosts files on Google and also VanirAOSP's hosts file.
Don't remember exactly where they're from, but these are the comments in them:

Code:
# hpHosts - Ad and Tracking servers only
#
# The following are hosts in the hpHosts database with the ATS classification ONLY.
# This file will NOT protect you against malicious domains
#

Flashed this, no su & my recovery is gone. When I boot to recovery I just get the Android on his back, little red triangle. Flashed using philz cwm based recovery. Any trick to get the koush su working

Edit, got it. Went in & changed superuser access to apps only & it worked. Yahoo

Still no recovery but I'll just use flashify app & put twrp on there & then flash philz

Thanks


EDIT: Sorry, sure it's in superuser app...

My recovery doesn't get touched when flashing with TWRP.
Could be a problem with the recovery you're using.
