Default [ROM/A1/Recovery][Wifi+3G+TMobile][4.4.4/2.8][Sep 20]Omni Based Rom and TWRP

Summarized Standard Disclaimer: use at your own risk. I use it at mine.
*Full wipe recommended if coming from another kitkat rom*
MAKE SURE TO HAVE A BROWSER APK. THERE IS NO MORE STOCK BROWSER. For firefox see below.

My personal build "Diamond Rom 4.4" is based on omnirom with the following additions:
  • CM Calculator (the newly redone one they're proud of)
  • CM File Manager
  • CM Wallpapers
  • Bash shell
  • Nano text editor
  • Powertop
  • Koush's full featured open source superuser (and it's INTEGRATED into settings )
  • Carbon rom blue balls wallpaper
  • Cyanogenmod port of 2 column settings adapted to Omni rom.

I've added a few of my personal touches which include
  • Batter circle color changing: green 100%-51% yellow 50%-16% red 15%-0% This was my favorite I9000M framework-res mod that I've missed since switching to CM7.2 way back.
  • Killed lock screen music full screen (personal privacy thing when riding public transportation)
  • Disable android external storage management: messes with ext4 formatted hard drives or multi partitioned hard drives. Use the unix style mount command
  • Disable hardware keyboard on boot: disabled but not removed. You'll have to manually turn it on
  • Removed camera sounds
  • Disable SELinux at the kernel level. It's even disabled on my laptop/desktop at the kernel because it seems like it's more trouble than it's worth.
  • Put the dalvik cache in the cache partition. Don't waste the data partition for it.
  • And of course, comes bundled with my A1 kernel

Every thing I've tested: camera, youtube hd, sound, gps, usb otg(use manual mount command) etc work.

*Instructions*
First time flashing omni:
-Flash TWRP (you can flash twrp over cwm from cwm if you're in that situation)
-Make recovery backup (optional)
-Run Titanium Backup (highly recommended)
-Full wipe
-Format system partition
-Install ROM
-Install gapps
-Reboot

Subsequent flashes:
-Install ROM

Newer versions of firefox explicitly disable flash on tegra2. Use my firefox mod which is just normal firefox with a hacked tegra2 blacklisting mechanism. Don't use the old firefox apk. It has unpatched security holes.

Known Issues:
  • Wifi signal indicator and speed indicator don't show up
  • No list of 3G APN. Write down your settings first
  • Bluetooth audio issues
  • Recovery adb doesn't start automatically. In recovery, go to Advanced --> ADB Sideload and start it. You can then cancel it if you don't want to use that. It just starts the recovery adb and will continue to run until you reboot. fixed thanks to twa_priv
  • Use another recovery for TMobile. Apparently the twrps I make can't boot on TMobile hardware even though it boots on my Wifi only.

FAQ
  • Yes you can flash TWRP over CWM
  • Random flickering: Try Settings-->Developer options -->Disable HW Overlays.
  • Can't install a very large quantity of apps: fix
  • Can't mount ext4 media: kill the e2fsck process assuming you safely removed the media before sticking into the tablet.

See this post about building from source. I use a different, simpler trick for prebuilt chromium binaries. Fear not, they are source built but only when there are real source changes. They're just recycled in between to save 90mins/build of time.

I think it's kinda of silly how Cyanogenmod goodies like their calculator and superuser are never going to make it into omni because it's "from the enemy". It's not like omni has a competing feature to match those goodies.

Hi AAccount,

thanks for your 4.4.3 ROM, sounds promising ... however, what about the graphical glitches on that vesion? I always went back to ROM version CM10.2/SGT7 as this seems to be the latest one without those glitches (last version I tried was Nameless ROM version 4.4.2 where they were still visible ... and annoying).

Thanks in advance,

mistersixt.

What graphical glitches do you mean? I think ever since omni fixed the screenshot way back most graphical bugs have been ironed out. By youtube hd do you mean it doesn't play or can be laggy? If you mean laggy I read on wikipedia the GPU video decoding on the tegra2 sucks. That's a hardware problem.

3G build and new recovery coming later today. I cheated the chrome renderer build process by copying all the freshly done ones from the wifi only output folder.

My github is now fully up to date with all the appropriate omni repos forked with my personal touches whether it be the audio blob fixes or little things I like.

What are the flashing instructions? Is there a preferred gapps package?

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

With all ROMs starting with 4.3 it looks like if a flash of lightning goes from one corner to the other (my wife is saying it looks more like a scratch) for maybe 100 ms, this happens quite constantly though, every minute or something. Also, in some games like flappy bird the application gets stuck for maybe 100 to 200 ms completely (every 5 to 10 seconds maybe) before it continues, this makes playing games unpossible (temple run is another good example).

With 10.2/SGT7 this does not happen ... for whatever reason.
