omni-7.0-20161022-mako-HOMEMADE.zip


Because of the nature of Xposed framework, NO SUPPORT will be given to those running Xposed framework on Omni 6
CHANGELOG:
Code:
2016-10-22: -Video recording fixed on stock camera (snapdragon camera still have some issues there, jerky video) -Omni features progressively backported 2016-10-4: Initial Release

You MUST DO A FULL WIPE, whether you are coming from homemade builds (aka my builds), or a previous version of OmniROM. Be certain to do a full backup of your data, apps, call logs, sms/text and so on before flashing.
GAPPS must be flashed BEFORE initial boot, they will NOT work properly if you flash them afterwards !!!



KNOWN BUGS:

Code:
- Camera recording only works with Google Camera - Screen rotation isn't working
Omni only supports TWRP recovery, use any alternate recovery at your own risk.
RECOMMENDED TWRP

Only a few changes are taken from CyanogenMod, but thanks to them for those

More or less the same features than in Omni 6, everything is being backported.
Battery led and custom notification led will be there in next build.

Talking We expect android 8
Why such a hurry !?
Before you refine the A-7 will have A-8.

Of course it was a joke, but journalists already predict the future:

Android 8 : ce que l'on attend

Mostly because I'm in vacations, and got the time this week to do the bringup for Nexus 4, then OmniROM got gerrit fixed so we could merge everything that needed to, from there, things go quite fast, team is actually quite efficient

I noticed a few kernel side commits i didn't merge yet, so tomorrow's build, you should expect a few things fixed, rotation should be fixed, and some omnigear stuff are coming back

I think I stated it the header, yes, it will be needed to avoid any problem, Android 7 has a lot of changes.

New build delayed for tomorrow, have been hard at work trying to solve the camera video recording, failed. Rotation is fixed.
Video recording seems to be a recurring issue on Android 7 for older devices, and none of the ROM I checked managed to really fix it for good. From there, I'm not actually certain it will ever get fixed, and because of this, I don't know if Nexus 4 will reach nightlies or not. I will publish builds as OmniROM features get backported, but won't go any further than this.
Given Google's pricing for Pixel, I am soon buying a Oneplus 3, and will switch to it for OmniROM support.
I'm not giving up totally on Nexus 4, but dev won't be as up to date as it was when I did Marshmallow or Lollipop.

Hi all! I have been wondering if Snapdragon camera is included, cuz that's the only thing stopping me from switching to Omni 7 or CM 14?

Yes, Snapdragon Camera is included, it's actually replacing the stock AOSP camera, only video recording is broken on Nexus 4 atm, that's what I was mentioning earlier, no one has this properly working 100%, camera itself is able to take pictures, no issues there, but just video recording isn't possible atm.

I remember stepen wolf with cm 14 unofficial figuring on how ot fix it. but I am not sure if he has done so as of yet or not. but he di state it was on hhis list of things to do to fix the rom. so whwho knows between you and stepean with cm14 you guys can figure it eventually.

---------- Post added at 01:35 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:18 PM ----------

just read his post he still has the same issue with camera video recording having issues it will record in 720 p ok but with 1080p has issues. so he will be working on it. so hopefully between kldoc and stepan the issue will get resolved.thats the only issue with nexus 4 having had the AOSP 7 rom on my nexus 4 over 2 months now. kldoc I am also agreeing with you google made a big disservice to the developer by raising the price of the pixel for the development community. as soon as I have some fund I will be joining in support and getting a 1 plus 3 as well. the only thing will be to get older nexus device and keep them up to date and then going forward go with other vendor to prove to google that they are not the only premium product with a outrageous price that the development community cant afford and then will end up jumping ot other product lines to support going forward in the future . that's one thing that google has now gotten out of touch with its community. they are forgetting that the development community got them to the big Android dance. The developers developers . I respect what all you guys and gals do here on XDA for all of us!!!!
