Default [ROM] [4.4.4] [Jul-20] [HOMEMADE] OmniRom for HTC Desire (GSM) | *Inspired*





I am proud to present you with a lean AOSP based ROM.








Omni is a community-based project for the Android community which is Free: Free to Use, Free to Modify, Free to Share. It's also about options, which is the beauty of Android.




Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * 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. Hard. A lot.
 */

- Switch gcc toolchain to Sabermod 4.10 (better performance)
- Fix Usb Mass Storage

CURRENTLY NOT WORKING:
==============================
  • MMS (present in all 4.x ROMs; Just use Textra SMS instead)
  • Video recording (currently present in all 4.x ROMs for HTC Desire; Just use Videocam Illusion (audio quality at 44.1KHz!))
  • Screen recording (writes zero KB file)
  • OpenVPN (kernel issue: cannot acquire tun interface socket)
  • SELinux (disabled by intention)

ART support:
The most recent release also includes ART. Please be warned that ART is still considered to be an "experimental mode". Only few apps support it. ART is currently not tested by me and may lead to crashes or even to data loss. Please enable ART only if you know what you are doing and why you are doing this.

Todo list:
==============================
  • Add Trackball wake option
  • Investigate why hardware keys are not illuminated when you push them

Sources:
=================
http://github.com/omnirom
https://github.com/spezi77/android_k...ree/carbonized

You may want to compile it yourself:
=============================
To initialize your local repository use this command:
Code:
repo init -u git://github.com/spezi77/omnirom.git -b android-4.4
Then to sync up:
Code:
repo sync
Then to build:
Code:
 cd ; . build/envsetup.sh; brunch bravo

Special thanks:
=================
  • OmniROM Team
  • Evervolv Team "bringing us kk in the first place and some of the other source used"
  • Croniccorey "for EternityKernel"
  • CyanogenMod "for their legacy code"
  • BaNkS "for the minimal GApps package"
  • PurityKitKat "for the bionic optimizations"

@spezi77, hat's off to your talents. I have flashed 3 of your roms

from Xperia Z > CM-11 KitKANG > Carbon

they are all ready well made and at very high standard.
Omni is the next rom that can match CM. I can't wait to try.

off topic, are you working on a Sense based rom?

Relieved to hear that it's running good. I have asked devs from omni-team about the BT and UMS issues. Maybe someone can help me to find the right fix..
