This here is my personal setup and thought i'd share. Usually i test extensively before releasing to public, but if you do find something detrimental to the usage of your device that is either Force Closing or simply not working, let me know and i will in turn inform whether that is something i will tend to.

WETA is made for Music geeks like me, its main focus is stability and Audio. It is Based off latest firmware currently, and will always be using the most up to date firmware base.

Rom does not include...

This rom is debloated, meaning i have removed...
Google apps, there are google apps that are avaliable on the play store that have been removed.


How to install...

The usual thing here, I use TWRP so can only recommend that recovery, but i am sure you will be fine with others.
If coming from another Version Base, vendor.img may need to be flashed.. Do this BEFORE flashing the rom!
Make sure WETA zip file is in your internal SD card, and head to recovery and flash the rom zip file. Reboot.
ENCRYPTED DEVICES - If you have your data partition encrypted, and you have set a "Device pin" you are going to have issues with system UI unless you disable device pin in security settings before flashing rom.

Updated A.R.I.S.E to Numbers V3.5

8.1
**Wipe data,dalvik and cache. Also flash vendor.img before flashing.
Added Magisk/Phh root option
Added WETA Audio option (no arise)
***V4a, Dolby and weta reboot will only work with magisk if you set magisk to permissive.

8.2
PLEASE READ (applies to magisk users only)- because the permissive setting is stored within the magisk.img.. if you backup data then wipe and restore data after the rom flash then you wont get permissive by default.
These are your options... 1, go into root explorer and delete /data/magisk.img before you go to twrp to backup
or 2, dont restore a backup
or 3, if you have already downloaded and installed V8.2 and a backup, you can dirty flash 8.2 over the top to fix problem
or 4, i dont usually recommend this, but dirty flashing should be fine this time around

Changes
Set SeLinux to Permissive by default for Magisk install
- V4A and Dolby only work in Permissive mode with magisk.
Removed DPI options, see Dev Settings screen size adjust
Fixed WETA Audio V4A install
Added Tethering hack

ROM Download Page


Wiping data, cache and dalvik is recommended.
Wipe Data if you are coming from another rom or version base, have crashes or other issues before reporting.

Flashing of vendor.img should be done BEFORE flashing the rom if you want all functionality!

TWRP 3.0.2-2 is needed for Nougat roms onward.
TWRP 3.0.2-2 - Download


Kernel source - https://android.googlesource.com/dev.../angler-kernel
WETA Reboot source - https://github.com/daxgirl/6thGear-Reboot-App
CM version sources - https://github.com/CyanogenMod


If you like my work, please consider buying this poor guy a craft beer for his efforts


This rom is built from a stock google rom image and doesn't require source links.

Flashing Instructions Nougat based rom

1. Wipe Data, dalvik and cache
2. Flash Vendor
3. Flash radio and bootloader if needed.
4. Flash Rom
5. First boot approx 2min

Common Questions

How do i hide stock battery?
How do i mod NavBar?

- Both of these can be found in system ui tuner. You activate this by swiping down the notification pull down and pressing and holding the settings cog until it vibrates.
This turns on a new menu in Settings called systemui tuner, its all in there. If the cog doesnt vibrate. You may need to change your animation scales back to 1x within dev settings.

SystemUI keeps crashing
- Most likely this is a theme issue, especially after a dirty flash. Uninstall all themes and the apps. Flash vendor.img, wipe dalvik and cache, and rom again.
If its happening at boot time right when your device is asking for a password, then you need to flash stock rom and disable device boot security pin. Its a problem with encrypted devices and modified SystemUI.apks

Why is my battery life crap?
- Start by looking at your custom kernel, or by looking at user apps you use. Also simply constantly watching your battery is a battery drainer. The rom is seldom at fault with battery drain problems, and if it is to blame, then it is most probably and upstream google issue and not WETA.

Where is AdAway?
- If you flashed adblocker, then that is what you flashed, not AdAway. These are different things. Adblocker is a simple replacement of your stock hosts file that in turn blocks ads.

How do i get Stock clock back? How do i remove adblocker? How do i get stock NavBar height back? How do i Get A.R.I.S.E back?
- This is so simple and if you ask any of these types of questions... then i slappa yo face..
Just dirty flash the rom again. Select what you want

What is WETA Audio?
WETA Audio is an alternative to flashing with A.R.I.S.E. It replaces A.R.I.S.E with my own setup consisting of V4A (2.5.0.5 or 2.3.4.0, optional Dolby Atmos and drivers and effects from Sony, HTC and ALSA drivers. Its a more simplistic approach to what A.R.I.S.E offers which some people were requesting. Its my go to setup now also.

mentalmuso, can you add advanced reboot menu to power button? can you add volume skip track functionality?
- Short answer, No. This rom is built from stock prebuilt google images and is the reason why its mostly so stable. mods like this require building the rom from source code, which is something im not prepare to dive into at this stage. It takes too much time out of my life and requires a bigger SSD hard drive than i have at this time. Maybe ill have interest in this in the future, if i lose my job or something.

mentalmuso can you add CM visualizer to navbar?
- This mod requires the system to have signature check verification to be disabled. Although its a cool mod, thats one security risk i wont implement.

Why is there no SuperSU app, or Why is there no PHH superuser app?
- The root apps get installed to the /data partition at installation. This means sometimes there is a conflict as you may have left over data from a previous installation. This can be remedied by simply finding the app you need on the play store and installing it. No big deal. The Root binaries would have been installed properly.

Will CMTE be coming to this rom? What about OMS support
CMTE and OMS require a rom to be built from source so commits can be added. I'm not going to build from source.

Where are the extra fonts??!!
stock Android has no way of changing the system font. And WETA can't change that. It pre installs fonts for third party apps to use. Such as 3minit clock

Yes, please just hit report in the future, instead of the mention system, especially mentioning Admin.

Please address your kernel source before this is moved. See this thread for more, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2645321

Let me know when this is handled and I will move this.
