Default [KTU84P][ROM][aw3som3]OmniROM ~ 04July2014


First time installing OmniROM to your HTC Pico, or coming from another ROM:
  • Read known issues and FAQs
  • Copy GApps, SuperSU, and OmniROM ZIPs to your SDCard
  • Boot into Recovery
  • Flash the superwipe.zip from here, or DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot)
  • Flash OmniROM zip from SDCard
  • Flash GApps zip from SDCard
  • Flash SuperSU flashable ZIP
  • Reboot
Quote:
  • Don't restore system data using Titanium Backup!
  • Restoring Apps + Data might cause problems and is not recommended, avoid it if possible!
Upgrading from earlier version of OmniROM:
  • Copy the OmniROM ZIP to your SDCard
  • Boot into Recovery
  • Flash the OmniROM zip from SDCard
  • As the flashing wipes the /system partition, reflash Gapps, and SuperSU
  • Reboot

It's entirely possible that features not used by me are broken, but overall the device should be usable. You have been warned.

You need to have atleast *one* ext4 partition on your SDCard before flashing this ROM!

Changelog:

Quote:
04 Jun 2014
  • latest omni sources
  • -DREFRESH_RATE=60
  • removed COMMON_GLOBAL_CFLAGS += -DNO_TUNNEL_RECORDING
  • TARGET_QCOM_DISPLAY_VARIANT := caf

  • inherit-product $(SRC_TARGET_DIR)/product/locales_full.mk) instead of defining custom locales
  • remove libwebcore compilation
  • general cleanup device tree
  • sd-ext to /data by default! don't use *any* extra modifications and phuck up stuff!
  • removed releasetools (the entire build!)
  • all latest changes from codykernel!
Changelog for Older Builds:
 


Quote:
25 APR 2014:
  • Added custom LatinIME_slim. You can still find the original LatinIME.apk in extras folder (https://gerrit.omnirom.org/#/c/6843/). Should you see significant code changes in latinIME, LMK, I'll update the prebuilt.
  • Added custom releasetools (all these files are not flashed to /system but can be found in extras/ folder in zip, should you need them
Quote:
Build 7 Changelog : 18 APR 2014:
  • Fixed video recording
  • Fixed mass storage
  • disabled LPA audio
  • added PMEM_CACHE_FLUSH to driver (credits to agrabren)
  • Double Tap Home button to open recents
  • added Floating Window
  • Use pure OmniROM sources, with cherry-picks for legacy UMS and Floating Window (i.e. no omniarmv6 merges) (and no, omniarmv6 sources do not help fix camera)
Quote:
Build 6 Changelog : 16 FEB 2014:
  • Latest upstream changes (KVT49L)
  • A new bootanimation (lags, as ain't properly resized for our device... you can help me do so, by resizing it, from here: https://github.com/omnirom/android_v...tanimation.zip)
    Note: The new bootanimation isn't included in this build because it gives some very nasty OOM errors, causing phone to not boot. So, reverted back to old bootanim. Will work fine on resizing.
  • One bug fix, (the controls not showing in video player (in h/w acceleration mode))
  • option to revert back to classic webview (though we still using chromium) (open up build.prop and change "persist.webview.provider" from "chromium" to "classic")
Quote:
Build 5 Changelog : 13 FEB 2014:
  • Fixed Camera (video recording's derped for now. metadata's disabled, but this time, its some kind of codec error, non support for legacy)
  • Upstream changes (notably the Omni Sound Packs, more info here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2630011), and OFC, NTFS support!

Info 2 Misc.

SuperWipe: When installing a new ROM, it is usually better to do a factory reset. In case you like to live dangerously, and spam threads with its consequences, stop reading this now.

So, made some modifications to the existing superwipe.zip, adding support for:
  • inbuilt journaling disabling (assuming you have an ext4 file system)
  • inbuilt NAND recovery

Download: superwipe_v0.5.zip

Note: A factory reset would work just as fine
