Well, it's time to make the announcement - the first build of OmniROM, based on Android L, has now booted.

In the spirit of "pics or it didn't happen"



This is running on the N7 2013 (flo).

Hang fire on syncing though - we're still getting everything sorted to bring an amazing experience with Android 5.0. There's a few bugs still being sorted out, so you will need a fair few patches and tweaks to get builds going.

Just thought I'd let everyone know that "it's happening" A big thanks to @XpLoDWilD for doing all the ninjamerging of the new repositories.

Contributing to Omni

As a reminder, devices without an active device maintainer won't be receiving L, as the core Omni team are currently working beyond capacity. We'll be adding more folks where possible to do this, but this is where we need *your* help - this is the time to try to encourage your device maintainer to get involved. We've struggled by with keeping Android 4.4 going, and without more contributors, it will take a lot longer to get to where we want to be with Omni.

We've got a huge roadmap of ideas and features, much of it on our wiki, but without contributors, much of it gets nowhere. Omni is a ROM inspired by what YOU want, but we can't make that happen without contributions from people like YOU.

We're looking forward to getting Android 5.0 out and in the wild as part of a custom ROM, as soon as we can, but this needs a lot of hard work, and more hands always help! Interested developers can find us on #omni and #omnirom on IRC.

Great news! Why am I the first one replying?

I've read your article on the homepage about the poor quality/buggy state of Lollipop. Now we all know how Omni is about good, clean code and stability rather than being the first to release something that isn't ready for prime time(for eg Theme engine/multi-window) using hacks or "fixing" stuff by simply treating the symptoms, not the cause (pardon the analogy).
What is your opinion/solution about this issue?

Is that Omni with a prebuilt kernel? Or is it just an AOSP build with edited build.prop?

It's easier to type L than Lollipop. Did you also complain when people were talking about ICS and JB?
