THIS ROM BOOTLOOPS. NO NEED TO CONFIRM OR POST SUCH ANYMORE


Basically this ROM is an experiment at building LineageOS 14.1 (Nougat) specifically for an xt907 KKBL

How I built it:
Basically, I have done no "magic" here. If this ROM works, I may also be able to build crDroid & ResurrectionRemix Nougat as well. Actually, my JBBL from this device tree worked better for crDoid and RR than LOS

This is an experimental build of LineageOS 14.1, Android version 7.1.2, an experimental build for a non-official device (ie xt907 KKBL).

I personally do not have an xt907 with KKBL, but an xt905 with JBBL, so I can't easily test this KKBL ROM. PLEASE tell me if it works or not.
The good
  • It's LineageOS
  • It's Nougat!
  • It's for KKBL
  • It's built from a device tree that I hacked into JBBL, and that booted
  • A TWRP for KKBL was built using the same device tree, and I am told that that works
  • It Builds
The bad
I have no idea if it boots as I don't have a KKBL installed
Since I do not own an xt907 KKBL, I cannot test this zip personaly, and hope someone with an xt907 KKBL will try the zip and let me (and others) know if it works?

What I hope is that if this boots and runs, I will try building crDroid Nougat (and maybe ResurrectionRemix) for the xt907 KKBL. If they also work, I personally will up[grade to the KKBL (my JBBL version of crDroid has numerous FC's)

Credits: All credits go to LOS contributors and CM maintainers before them.

Almost forgot, Flash this ZIP at your own risk, the responsibility is all yours, it is provided as-is, with no garantees or whatever and I will not be held resonsible for any damage to your device or its data etc etc etc

Installation:
1) Download the ZIP
2) Boot into TWRP recovery (I wou;d recomend updating to TWRP 3.x (see myh othere thread I have been told trhat it works)
3) Make a nandroid (you should definitely be going back) And remember, a nandroid is NOT 100%! if you don't understand this, maybe trying this is not for you.
4) Wipe system/data/cache/dalvik
5) Flash update package (ie install the zip)
6) Flash GApps (probably Open GApps pico...) if it doesnt work, try a wipe and not flashing GApps (it helps with crDroid for JBBL)
6) Reboot to system

If it falls over, please get some logcats and post them on hastebin/pastebin etc etc NOT HERE, only the links. Hopefully we can fix it and have some highly customisable nougat ROM's for your device. And the steps to make it work may also be helpful for the next Android iteration.

And please post how you go with this ROM, either way, I would like to know if it works or not to decide if to build crDroid and/or RR. If it does work and crDroid does not, I may get around to building a non experimental build, with Overclocking enabled.

Fix: downloading with TOR works))

It may of been a timing thing. I posted the link right after the upload finished.

Just flash it (with and without gapps) - neverended boot animation, bootloop

how much time did you give it? I have found 8-10 minutes is the norm for the first boot, and I allow 15 before I concede its not going anywhere.

Never mind, I am also just preparing to build crDroid (Nougat) (source is a big and slow download). I found that with the KKBL code altered to JBBL, crDroid booted while LineageOS 14.1 did not. And maybe LOS13 will boot. The fact that LOS14.1 at least showed the animation is a big positive.

Out of interest, did you flash it using TWRP 3.1.1?

One difference I have noted between MM and Nougat is that MM will play the boot animation for much shorter a time and go into the "Optimizing app 1 of XX", while Nougat will continue to play the boot animation all through the optimisation (ie a LOOOOONnng time), until it actually loads and displays the launcher. Just a thought, maybe a little hope...

Endless boot screen for me, both with and without GApps. Waited 20 minutes both times. Installed via KKBL TWRP 3.1.1.

I think its safe to say, it will boot loop for everyone.

However, if you wish to possibly see this go further, if someone was to get a log of /proc/kmsg and logcat (and post on hastebin or such, not here), there may be something simple to change. Not that I am going to spend hour and hours on it, but you never know, it may be simple. To know how to get these logs from a non booting computer, you can get the kmsg while TWRP and the logcat maybe using adb over USB. There are plenty of guides on XDA.
