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 flo/deb include:
- Linux kernel 3.4.y merged in (currently 3.4.108 - 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!)
- SELinux in Enforcing mode

Installation
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 flo/deb 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)

Information about our experimental builds and progress you may find here.

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 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:
- 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)
- Google Now Launcher (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.launcher)

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.

I simply use Darker for night time playing in the bed personally, I reduce brightness to 65% and apply a slight yellow tint. When most websites are white, theming the framework wouldn't matter that much anyways... and we kinda want to feel like a factory image (no dark mode in them either)

@Ziyan Thanks for your efforts on these older devices. I've used your work on both Gtab 2 and Grouper before I sold them. I just downloaded 0324 builds for Flo and Hammerhead, neither one matched the MD5. I just downloaded Flo again but still no match. I haven't tried flashing any of the roms yet but figured I'd let you know.

Also, don't know if you use Netflix but it's been a problem getting a current version of the app working properly on ANY Nougat rom for Flo. Without any modifications, the Netflix app will load and give you an option to download and watch at a later time. However, if you try to just do a normal streaming of a movie or show, it will give you an error 0013. As is mostly the history of Netflix, it appears to be a drm issue. @Startrek852 was able to compile a zip with drmblobs that will eliminate the error 0013 and allow normal streaming but you lose the ability to download and watch at a later time. Although I don't use Google Movies, it's my understanding that it will not work if you flash the drmblobs.

Anyway, just wondering if "in your travels" you've heard of this Netflix issue and might possibly know of a proper fix. Thanks again.

This issue seems to haunt us... We'll try looking into it again ASAP. Oddly enough, every time I download, I get a match, and it flashes perfectly

Play Movies works perfectly, so I'm not sure how to debug that either ways - can look into that zip later on.

Thanks for your reply. Here's the D/L for the drmblobs zip if you decide to take a look. https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=529152257862690585

Very weird on the MD5 thing, as mentioned I downloaded it twice and on a desktop PC so it shouldn't be a mobile issue??? I'm gonna' flash it later, will report if there's a problem.

@Ziyan
Updates come out every day ...?)
And why the cache is not f2fs?
I'm sorry that there are a lot of questions. I just made this rom basic and I want to figure it all out

p.s. That there were no problems with gapps - you need to restart the recovery after flashing the main rom
