The Unlegacy Android Project

Introduction
Unlegacy-Android started out as the OMAP4-AOSP Project. It was created in late 2015 in order to maintain a clean and organized place for pure AOSP support for various OMAP4 devices, such as the Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 series. Over time this evolved to support more than just these devices, but still maintains its roots of supporting "legacy" devices that no longer receive "official" updates: hence Unlegacy Android was born. In our opinion, these ROMs are how the official updates would look.

On top of AOSP, we only include changes which are necessary to support the hardware, be secure, and get acceptable performance. Current features for mako include:
- Linux kernel 3.4.y merged in (currently 3.4.1113 - mostly security patches and minor bug fixes)
- BFQ IO scheduler (official kernel 3.4 release), set up so GUI processes have the highest priority
- F2FS support from kernel 4.9 (for /data only! no point of f2fs on /cache)
- SELinux in Enforcing mode

Installation
It's important that /system needs to be unmounted before installing the ROM - some recoveries tend to leave it mounted after performing operations on it.

If you're planning to install GApps, be sure to read the second post!

Aside from these, installation and upgrading is no different than on other ROMs.

Problems
- No known issues for mako yet.

If you notice anything, be sure to report it in this thread. Stability is our main concern. While I'm kind of busy, I usually read the thread and acknowledge the bug reports, even if I don't reply directly to them.

Downloads
See: http://builds.unlegacy-android.org. Our automated builds ensure that we always have the latest Android security patches merged in, without having to manually start and upload builds
We will have a built-in OTA updater (just like stock) soon (it's a work in progress)

Features?
There isn't much to say here - this is AOSP, if you install GApps, you pretty much get the same thing that's running on the Nexus devices (see the second post). The aim of this project is to create a fast and stable ROM - although, one could use Xposed (or similar) to add extra features.

As usual, feedback is appreciated

GApps
If you want to install GApps, we recommend Open GApps Micro.

An important note: as this is a pure AOSP ROM, installing GApps tends to be problematic: in order to try to avoid installation issues, be sure to install GApps immediately after installing the ROM, before booting the system for the first time. If you experience any issues with the Google applications, be sure to go into Settings -> Apps, and grant every permission to every Google application - most importantly, Google Play services.
In the case of an upgrade, be sure to re-install the GApps package, as upgrading wipes /system. You shouldn't need to re-set the permissions afterwards.

Stock-like setup
Disable the following built-in (AOSP) apps:
- Android keyboard (once you installed Gboard)
- Browser
- Calculator
- Camera
- Clock
- Email
- Gallery

Install the following apps from the Play store:
- Android Messages (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...apps.messaging)
- Google Photos (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id.apps.photos)
- Calculator (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oid.calculator)
- Chrome (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.chrome)
- Clock (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.deskclock)
- Gboard (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...utmethod.latin)
- Gmail (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gle.android.gm)
- Google Calendar (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.calendar)
- Google Camera (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.GoogleCamera)

SafetyNet
The ROM should pass SafetyNet after installing GApps, without anything else. Keep in mind that installing extra stuff (SU, ...) might make it fail!

Rooting
You can flash the latest Magisk to get rooted.

Just a little note on this, I've been testing his build and it's been really smooth so far. (Even more than my own AOSP build) Also for other ROM's devs out there, he's the original dev who fixed the sensors and he also fixed the camera without relying on AOSP hacks. (Well except SELinux but that's another thing...) You can check out the source for more info about it.

Because I didn't have much time to work on it, I want to thank @Ziyan for his work on this. I could even say that eventual people who are currently on the AOSP build should go on this one moving forward.

From 1 February I check ROM periodically. For now ROM is not for me. It is too raw.
There are no navigation buttons for me and I can not disable them if I want to use Button Savior, for example. ROM does not see WiFi 5GHz.

However, I am pleased that there's a thread on XDA.

Forgive me if it has already been posted in the gapps thread, but is open gapps working for 7.1.2 builds? Last I checked, it was reported that setupwizard crashes on 7.1.2 due to being outdated. Thx!

Never heard about the navigation button issue... Might investigate it if I can get more feedback or reproduce the issue
About 5 GHz, it seems to work fine for me: Click image for larger version

Yeah, Open GApps has a problem with setup wizard on 7.1.2 at the moment. I hope they'll fix it soon...

Thx for confirming! For now I'll anxiously wait with the build already on my laptop ready to flash when the gapps are :P

I gave you a link to the thread. The code provided @spezi77 in post #2.

Request to Developers & Contributors ROMs for Nexus 4 on the navigation bar in TWRP

That's right.
The ROM immediately shows 2 GHZ interfaces.
Within 12 seconds after the WiFi is switched on, 5 GHz interfaces are also displayed.
I was impatient.
