Announcement from bthorne79: Team OctOs Presents Oct-M!

Quote:

Disclaimer: OctOs is a WIP. It has been evaluated as being stable, and is suitable for daily use in most cases. While it may be considered stable, there may be unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.

Team OctOs presents Oct-M.

We maintain a current release record and change-log on our website: http://www.teamoctos.com

- Please Do Not Mirror our files without talking to us. We can do that ourselves should we desire to. -


Team OctOs would like to thank Team Blackout for the use of their Blacked Out Nexus Launcher & for saving eyes one app at a time!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this Android 6 (Marshmallow)?
A: Yes, this is Android 6.0.1

Q: What code is Oct-M based on?
A: Starting with Oct-L, we've rebased OctOs on the CyanogenMod 12 code. Oct-M is based on CyanogenMod 13

Q: What happened to AOSP?
A: All Android code is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Under previous releases, we tried very hard to limit the number of "Not from Google directly" repositories that we used. Unfortunately, issues with devices, the need for Code Aurora Foundation (CAF) repositories for Qualcomm devices, and compatibility issues meant fighting code more often than not. We decided that since the code-base for many repositories were the same across most ROMs, picking a starting point to build the user experience on outweighed the desire to craft code from scratch, or fix broken code to make it work with other changes we already had.

Q: Why isn't there XYZ feature.
A: Shoot us a Suggestion if you want to see something added. While we are not going to promise to implement, we will always look into it

Q: But XYZ and all the others have..
A: ROM developers build something they want to use. The ROM developer that includes something they won't run implies less than 100% effort to ensure it does work. As a team, we have similar goals and objectives. If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don't include (or don't want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-M.

Q: Superuser or SuperSU?
A: Team OctOs uses SuperSU and is installed automatically.

Bugs:
Bugs happen. Our testers are very good at breaking things, but no where near as good as the rest of the Android public. In order to investigate and fix issues, we need the help of the users who are going to report them. The Android OS has many nifty features to help us in this, but only if we can engage the user to assist us.

Logs, Logcat, and the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB)
Like any other OS, Android has multiple log files that are generated and record the goings-on of the system. As a user, you have two basic ways to view and pull these to send to us. Without the information in the logfiles, there simply is not a whole lot of information to go on.

Log file APKs
Team OctOs recommends SysLog from the Android Market. This application will allow you to selectively pick any (or all) of the system logs, compress them into a .ZIP file, and allow you to save, email, move to your Copy/DropBox/Cloud Storage account, etc.

ADB Logcat
The Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) is a powerful tool available from Google as part of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Used for many things, being able to selectively see, in real-time, what your device is doing cannot be downplayed. While there is more setup involved, if you are doing consistent ROM flashing, you really should invest the time to get setup properly to do it.

ADB Logcat tutorial here: How to create a logcat log


Basic Instructions:
  1. Download ROM .zip file and MD5 file, and grab your favourite Opengapps package http://opengapps.org/
  2. Reboot to Recovery (Note: Use Reboot to Recovery from Power Menu, Hardware-based boot to recovery, or adb reboot recovery - ROM Manager or similar software is NOT supported)
    --- TWRP is the ONLY recovery Team OctOs uses - We do not support flashing on CWM ---
  3. Factory Reset from TWRP
  4. Flash ROM and GApps .ZIP files
  5. Reboot

The Oct-M ROM installation script will automatically wipe /system, /cache, and /data/dalvik-cache. There is no need to do these before or after flashing the ROM unless you are instructed to by your GApps Provider

The foundation of the Android OS is the fact that is it open-source. We have all code we use internally in the creation of Oct-M available on our GitHub repositories.

Unless otherwise specified, all Oct-M builds use the device's stock CyanogenMod 13 kernel.
Kraken kernel source code can be found here: https://github.com/Oct-mm

Rom installed. Unfortunately can't find Gapps that I can install. Could you provide a link please, the one in the OP is closed no links. Thanks

Never mind my mistake. Found it. Thanks

Installed ROM only rebooted, tested camera working. Rebooted a couple times, then flashed Gapps (full) everything works.
Very nice ROM thanks for your time. It's a new phone now

Thank you again

That is the MD5 file to make shure you downloaded the correct ROM file. It's not part of the ROM

Is there a way to disable the power button? My power button is very sensitive and the slightest brush against it will turn on and off the screen.
I've tried going to system/usr/keylayout/sec_powerkey.kl and changed it to #key 116 POWER WAKE, but it doesn't work. It use to work when I was on a TW Rom. Thanks in advanced.
Awesome Rom BTW. Very responsive and smooth.

I know this sounds crazy but I had the same problem and when I would click the power button the screen would go off and then right back on is that happening to you? If so I know how to fix with ease
