FAQ:
Before using the ROM:
Q. Can I have an ETA for the next build?
A. Yes, just look in the OP to see if your device is built on a nightly or weekly schedule.

Q. Does this ROM support custom kernels?
A. No. You can still use them, but discussion should go in the thread of the respective kernel. We don't offer support for bugs you might encounter while using them!

Q. Why doesn't this ROM support Xposed?
A. Xposed is a hack that is geared towards AOSP, custom ROM's modify the framework a lot, so Xposed can cause a ton of issues on custom ROM's. Now it might work for you, however it is not to be discussed in this thread, and you should refrain from posting bug reports.

Q. Alright, but I still want to flash Xposed, so which version do I need to install?
A. You will need to use the version arm64/arm/whatever for SDK 27.

Flashing the ROM:
Q. What do I need to know before flashing?
A. Check the install instructions in the first post...

Q. Can the builds be dirty flashed over each other?
A. Yes, however make a nandroid backup first as there is a chance of getting a bootloop or encountering bugs. Also bugs may only be reported on a clean flash.

Q. How do I dirty flash builds?
A. Wipe the System, Cache and ART/Dalvik cache. Flash the ROM, GApps (only needed if you wipe the system), your preferred root solution and reboot. Or just use the OTA app to preform that task for you.

Q. How do I flash kernel builds?
A1. If it's a .img file, boot into TWRP and go to the install page in TWRP, in the bottom right corner select "install image", select the desired kernel, then select "boot", then swipe to flash, then go back to the install screen and install your root method again, if you don't want to loose root and reboot.
A2. If it's a flashable ZIP, you can flash it together with a ROM update or separately. Go to the install page in TWRP, choose the kernel zip (or add it to the flash queue right after the ROM zip). Then add your root method to the queue if you don't want to loose root. Now swipe to flash, and then reboot.

Using the ROM:

Q. I installed a bad theme and now I'm getting a bootloop, how do I fix it?
A. In TWRP, flash the substratum rescue zip that's in the substratum folder on the internal storage.

Q. Do I need to provide a logcat if I'm reporting a bug?
A. If you want it to be fixed faster (or at all) then yes, you should definitely provide a logcat. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. and do not post the content here. Thanks.

Q. How do I get a logcat, what type should I get and more questions that can conveniently be answered by my pre-determined answer?
A1. Read this thoroughly. Also, here's a good app for getting logs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....tortel.syslog (Root needed).



The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android. You don't need to install any Add-on's, simply download the latest ROM, GApps, flash it and go!
If you want the device to run the ROM "rooted", you can flash a root solution of your choice after the ROM Zipfile.

It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup as this 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 any strange behavior.


- Backup your personal data (Important)
- Download the ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device.
- Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended).
- Wipe the System, Cache, Data and ART/Dalvik cache.
- Flash the ROM + Gapps Zipfile.
- Flash the root solution of your choice (optional).
- Reboot your device.


The ROM has GApps persistence in between dirty flashes, so you only have to flash them once!
The root solution should be flashed together with every update (= ROM Update)


Currently Supported Root Solutions:

Magisk stable
Magisk versions higher than 14.0 doesn't require flash on every dirty flash depending on the device, some devices need you to flash it every time, unless your maintainer says otherwise it should be fine


ROM: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1hhUj...xport=download
GApps:
OpenGApps

I flashed this, and was surprised how smooth and snappy it felt.

I got root to work with Magisk by manually installing the manager.

A couple of notes:
  • The launcher "worked" but had bugs. long pressing the home screen popped up a white menu with white writing. I successfully changed the wallpaper in the settings
  • A few times when I installed APK's from a file, the installer would get "stuck". It installed, but the done/open options never came up, and it was often a reboot to access the phone again.
  • It has some extra features, but is pretty close to AOSP. ie not the customisation I am used to
  • The screen had a habit of turning down to lower brightness after each time I set it to a higher brightness
  • Its SELinux permissive, and when I checked, there were a heap of audit exceptions. That would be expected on an early build.
  • I could make calls and send/receive SMS
Kind of inspires me to Build Pie Havoc-OS downloading the source now...



---------- Post added at 12:22 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:07 PM ----------

A couple more things I noted:
1.There is no music player (Thats ASOP, and Pico GApps) I downloaded Vinyl from Playstore, as it allows dark theme'ing.
2. There is No Audio FX. I rooted via magisk, then simply installed Viper v2.6.?.? , installed the drivers, rebooted, enabled it, and it worked

Thats not a bug, but a character of ASOP over lineage; some see it as a reason for going ASOP! Its like saying RR has a bug because I cant set the lockscreen date font colour, but I can on Havoc.

You are using german specific NTP Servers.My preference in my ROMs is to use the more "international" NTP Servers of
Code:
#Global
NTP_SERVER=2.android.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=time.izatcloud.net

#North America
#NTP_SERVER=north-america.pool.ntp.org

#Australia
#NTP_SERVER=au.pool.ntp.org

#Test
#NTP_SERVER=time.gpsonextra.net

#Europe
NTP_SERVER=europe.pool.ntp.org

#Asia
NTP_SERVER=asia.pool.ntp.org
maybe un-comment North America.


I tested many servers using
Code:
ping
(NB: they dont all respond to a ping request) and
Code:
w32tm /stripchart /computer:2.android.pool.ntp.org /dataonly /samples:5
NB: from the device without WiFi.

My bad, that's a windows thing
