Q&A
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why don't I have root access after installing OmniROM?
A: OmniROM does not have an official, prebuilt root method yet, so you'll just need to flash SuperSU in recovery and you'll have 100% working root access. SuperSU can be found here: SuperSU

Q: Where is <insert feature here>, like CM/AOKP/PA/etc have??
A: Omni is still very early in development, but moving at an incredibly fast rate. New feature, bug fixes, and device support are added just about daily. Check it out here: OmniROM Gerrit Review for the latest and greatest

Q: How do I start/stop screen recording?
A: Volume UP + Power will start screen recording. Simply drag the notification bar down and click the button to stop.

Q: HALP NFC doesn't work!!
A: We know.

I just wiped everything and installed it. I haven't found any issues yet, but I haven't even made any phone calls yet.

Thanks a ton for pulling this all together and sharing with the rest of us. I've been itching to try Omni.

EDIT: I made a phone call now! I haven't run across anything that doesn't work. Calls, texts, camera all work fine.

I did load it up seems to run just fine, missing alot of features I like to use such as hardware keys (custom settings) which is the main thing and the general interface options so I'll wait for some future tweaks.

I'd love to try this but again what are the tweaks in this rom? What do they differ from others and what are the same?
