GrapheneROM is finally getting a thread! GrapheneROM started as a personal project, but gained a few users after I posted it to the CarbonROM Google + page.
What is it?
GrapheneROM is an opensource version of Android 4.4.4 based off of Carbon. The main goal is to optimize performance to get the best speed possible, though I have smaller goals such as adding/removing features, and fixing bugs.
OpenSource? Can I build my own?
Yes! Yes you can! I set up a build script based off of LiquidSmooth's and Illusion's to make the build process as simple and as bug free as possible. The source is available at http://www.github.com/GrapheneROM
I would like to help develop, can I join the team?
Also yes! Team Graphene is currently looking for members as the current 2 (a friend and I) are typically busy with school, and have little time after to work other than the weekends. We currently need someone who is good with java and someone who can help with compiling toolchains and custom plugins for gradle, maven and the like. We also would like more Device maintainers to help spread the Graphene love to other forums.
Enough Mumbo-jumbo. What makes GrapheneROM different than Carbon?
Ill give it to you in bullet points so I don't bore you.
-ROM compiled with SaberMod 4.8 for speed responsiveness
-Kernel compiled with SaberMod 4.10
-Uses JustArchi's ArchiDroid Optimizations which include:
* 03 compilation
* Increased smoothness
* Increased speed
* Increased Responsiveness
* Up to 6x better performance
- Bug fixes
Changes to come:
-Linaro 4.9 instead of SM4.8
-Optimized BMS kernel by default
-Heads up and floating window
-Linaro 4.8.3 Host GCC
-Custom Gradle plugin (Thanks to AOSPAL)
STOP TALKING JUST GIVE ME THE F***ING ROM ALREADY
Fine. Don't read this. Just remeber if you break your device it's not my, nor anyone else's fault. (shameless disclaimer)
Special Thanks to:
