Default 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.

Also, some things to look forward to in the near future:
  • Omni File Explorer - OmniROMs native root file manager
  • native root support (you will no longer need to flash SuperSU in recovery)
  • OpenDelta - Omni's OTA Updater
  • NFC fix *properly*
  • Multi-Window
  • a big surprise in the next few hours

ParanoidAndroid gapps bring more Google stuffs

Banks does not bring as much google stuff, feels more "minimal" to me, but that's just my personal opinion. but with each of these, they both have several different packages, all doing different things. just look at their posts to see the details


OP UPDATED

Looks like Sprint was second! First official OmniROM nightly. The OP has been updated accordingly.

Changelog: https://changelog.omnirom.org
