About Omni: Omni is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

This is a port of Mackay OMNI ROM of the Samsung Galaxy S made by kasper_h.. I just ported this amazing rom to our Samsung Captivate

If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.

The ROM is based on Omni sources with the following changes:
-mohammad.afaneh's Kernel
-Set of cherries picked from gerrit (differing by the day)
-Some additional patches to the source code

Feature request are OK, but remember:
1. I try to stay close to stock
2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

Although it is possible to enable ART, this is not advisable:
-Takes long to convert from Dalvik to ART on first boot
-Needs more RAM
-Can cause soft reboots
But off course, YMMV -> light users may have better luck

Changelog of 27-Feb-2014
-Omni codebase of 26-Feb (e.g. new bootanimation )
-QS Ribbon is gone
-Mackay kernel included
-Mackay settings no FC
