Introduction
Vanilla is a ROM designed to be as close as possible to AOSP while having theming capabilities with substratum. If you don't want to use substratum you don't have to as it's an optional install from the play store. The ROM does not come with root as it isn't even needed for substratum anymore. Don't worry about flashing a kernel because flash come with it!

Features
It is much easier for us to maintain our features list over on github


Changelog
Vanilla's "Changelog" lives on github for easier updates



Installation

Clean flash (needed when coming from another ROM or on a version earlier than 1.11 upgrading to 1.11+):
  1. Download latest build with md5sum (TWRP will automatically verify)
  2. Download GApps
  3. Download latest vendor
  4. Boot TWRP
  5. Wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik cache
  6. Flash Vendor
  7. Flash Vanilla
  8. Flash GApps
  9. Flash other zips
  10. Reboot

Dirty flash (when already on Vanilla):
  1. Download latest build with md5sum (TWRP will automatically verify)
  2. Boot TWRP
  3. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
  4. Flash Vanilla
  5. Flash other zips
  6. Reboot


Frequently Asked Questions

1.1 Q: What's the difference between the two versions?
1.1 A: Pixel version has the blue accents system wide with round icons, the non-Pixel version is the normal AOSP look.

1.2 Q: Why doesn't the Pixel version have the nav bar?
1.2 A: In order to easily do two builds, the nav bar has to be overlayed in our custom vendor, which is not working at the moment. Download Substratum and install the nav bar overlay of PixelUI.

1.3 Q: How do I convert to F2FS?
1.3 A: This will involve formatting your data, backup before hand! I'd also recommend doing this after installing the ROM but before setting it up fully.
  1. If you don't know what f2fs is, 2 options: A. Google it. B. DO NOT USE F2FS FFS
  2. Download Nathan's custom TWRP: http://nchancellor.net/Downloads/TWRP/angler/
  3. Flash it with either fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery <path_to_img_file>
    or within your current TWRP (Install > Select Image > Recovery)
  4. Select Wipe > Advanced Wipe
  5. Select data and hit "Partition options"
  6. Select "Change filesystem"
  7. Select "F2FS"
  8. Slide to confirm
  9. Back out and do the same thing for cache
  10. Boot up into Android

1.4 Q: Can you add ABC feature from XYZ ROM??
1.4 A: If you can tell us where you saw the feature, we can consider adding it but this ROM is supposed to be close to stock; it will not have a lot of the bells and whistles that others will have.

1.5 Q: Can I flash Open GApps with this?
1.5 Q: Sure but we will not be providing support if something goes wrong.

1.6 Q: Can you add an option to remove lockscreen elements?
1.6 A: We could, however there isn't much of a point as you could just simply download Substratum and install Lock Clean.

1.7 Q: Do i need to flash GApps between builds?
1.7 A: You only need to flash GApps if you are doing a clean flash.

1.8 Q: Vendor XYZ id from the verizon only build. Where can i find the non-verizon vendor?
1.8 A: TL;DR It doesn't matter. If its in the op chances are thats the correct vendor.There is a common misconception about the vendors from the last 2 builds. The verizon vendor and normal vendor is IDENTICAL. the only difference between the verizon build and non verizon build is that the verizon build has a newer radio because 3.78 breaks verizon volte while 3.79 fixes it. HOWEVER even with that any user could flash that build perfectly fine.

1.9 Q: Can i build vanilla myself from source?
1.9 A: Go for it we wont stop you. we just ask that you don't publicly release anything. If you want a device supported you are welcome to be one of our maintainers just talk to me first. Feel free to contribute to the project Just know if you build Vanilla on your own, you will not receive support because if you are building it yourself you should be able to fix the issues yourself :P

Looks clean and uses my favorite kernel! Also has OMS support which is the main reason I root (yay rootless)! Don't need 700 different features. Thanks for building and congrats on building / sharing your first ROM. Props!
