AICP

Android Ice Cold Project


AICP is known by everyone as Ice Cold Project that started on Desire HD and since then evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community you can find!!!

Until Lollipop, Rom has always been AOKP based. Unfortunately, since AOKP either stopped development or will make a comeback later this year, we changed our base to CM when it comes to hardware, drivers and some features.

If there are any bugs, either we will sort them or CM team if it concerns their modifications. This rom isn't CM supported so no need to report errors or bugs to them!!

  • Don't disable Heads-Up. You wont be able to answer phone calls otherwise.
  • You tell... :P



ROMS should contain everything you need to enjoy Lollipop. You are not required to install any Add Ons, simply download the latest ROM, gapps, flash it, and go!
You are STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing, and if possible avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup - these can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug. If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience strange behavior.



How to flash:

  • Don't do it if you don't know it
  • ROM has gapps persistance in between dirty flashes
  • Flash boot.img in Fastboot

KERNEL:
Kernel in this rom follows CM source with custom additions.

PREREQUISITE FOR OTA:
To be able to flash over OTA app, TWRP recovery is needed.
You can still use CWM and OTA app, but only to download zip file and flash it manually from within recovery. Zip gets saved under AICP_ota folder on your internal SDcard.

If you want to contribute to the AICP or wanna see what is being worked on/merge feel free to visit our gerrit, link is at the bottom!!!

A quick note on #Find7 #AICP variants.

Find7 is a tricky device because of its bull**** partitioning layout (thanks Oppo). We have created 3 (4?) variants depending on your device / personal preference:
  • Find7 : This is stock Find7a as defined by Oppo, with 3GB for /data (!!).
  • Find7s : This is stock Find7s (QHD model) as defined by Oppo.
  • Find7ext: This is a variant created with the only purpose of increasing the available space at the cost of having an external sdcard (class 10 recommended) AND renaming two partitions from the recovery, which is a low risk process (not the same as repartitioning).
  • Find7u : This is the "unified" layout as created by c0ldbird and others. It requires a repartitioned device which I personally won't support as it's full of risks (I know cases of bricked devices). This was available on KitKat and for the moment is not supported on Lollipop (who knows in the future?)

Regarding find7ext, which is my preferred choice, this is what happens when you flash this variant:
  • Your internal sdcard will be remapped as external sdcard (and possibly invisible, as it is ext4 - you'll need to convert it to FAT from TWRP)
  • Your external sdcard will be remapped as internal sdcard. Most of applications ignore the secondary card so this will basically increase your sdcard space (depending on your external sdcard capacity).
  • If you want to have 9GB for /data (25GB on the 32GB model) and all of your sdcard as "/sdcard", then you just need to "rename" your partitions (not the same as repartitioning) which is a low risk process that can be easily done from TWRP by running some shell commands (adb shell):
Code:
parted /dev/block/mmcblk0
name 15 _sdcard
name 29 userdata
name 15 sdcard 
(Reboot recovery)
Wipe /data as ext4
Wipe /internal_sd as ext4
Reversing the layout requires a similar set of commands:
Code:
parted /dev/block/mmcblk0
name 15 _userdata
name 29 sdcard
name 15 userdata 
(Reboot recovery)
Wipe /data as ext4
Wipe /internal_sd as ext4
Hope you find this information useful.

Please don't ask for ETAs regarding Find7u. I personally don't recommend that method - although we may finally bring that up after all. There are safer solutions such as Omni's LVM implementation that we may also have or not in the future depending on free time and real life pressure. Please don't ask for ETAs for that too.

EDIT* I just read the third post entirely and realised it is no longer supported

Thank you for this, mate. Is the Find7u version universal, Will LVM work as well as Coldbirds? Also I can't seem to find the download for Find7u V8

This is a beautiful ROM, and I fell in love with it on first boot up. I installed the Find7ext version but still get the insufficient storage error when installing apps from playstore.

I also noticed that my Evernote fails to work now, as it runs into some errors creating a storage database.

Also for my device, I sometimes encounter not being able to read the Internal Storage (SD card), and have to reboot in order to get it working again.

So I wanted to ask: if I wanted to flash 7u, can I just dirty flash over Find7ext?

No I flashed the 7s boot.img. I honestly wanted to try out aicp lollipop because I was a huge fan in the kit Kat days. But no videos Or music made me go back to gummy 4.4.4 for now. Also waiting on xposed for our chipset. Are you using ext version?
