Announcement from vibhoothiiaanand: check post #429 for Quick kernel update and check #430 for Announcement.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any bricks you may obtain. Please follow the thread rules and steps and everything will be gravy. Remember, backing up before flashing is always recommended.
VertexOS aims to provide a simple but enhanced near-stock AOSP experience with carefully selected features and an emphasis on stability and smoothness.


* Disable SIM toggle
* OMS (please install Substratum separately)
* OnePlus Camera ported
* Vertex Walls
* sRGB toggle (AOSPA)
* Buttons customization (AOSPA)
* Battery icon customization (AOSPA)
* Double tap Launcher3 home screen to sleep (AOSPA)
* Double tap lockscreen to sleep
* Alert Slider customisations
* Off-screen gestures
* Slide on statusbar to adjust brightness
* Night light
* Unlink ring and notification volume
* Longpress volume keys for previous/next music track
* Screenrecorder (toggled with Volume Up + Power)
* Screenshot Crop & Share
* Removed HD icon
* Volte icon.
* Safetynet passed without root.
* Signature spoofing (for microG)
*OTA support

Feature requests are subject to my decision, and that we want to keep VertexOS lean.

Check POST #429 for updated kernel
- VertexOS 3.6
- Fixed Blueborne bluetooth issue
“In simple words, BlueBorne is an attack vector that can allow cyber criminals to use Bluetooth connections to silently take control of targeted devices without any action whatsoever on part of the victim. What’s really disconcerting is that for a device to be compromised, it doesn’t have to be paired to the attacker’s device, nor does it even need to be set to ‘discoverable’ mode. As many as eight separate zero-day vulnerabilities (including four critical ones) can be used to hack into most Bluetooth devices in use today, irrespective of the operating system."
So with this update this issue is FIXED
- Few kernel improvements
- Latest CAF merges
- September security patch

1.ROM is based on?
* Roms is Based was AOSP-CAF now its fully rebased to pure CAF with few lineage elements.

2.OTA Support?
* Yes after 2406 builds

3. F2FS-compatible?
- It should work, but I don’t give support for any strange issues caused by it.

4. Changelogs?
- Please check my commits on Github or the changelogs section in Settings->About Phone.

6. Feature requests?
- Please bring feature requests to the VertexOS Slack group. I would appreciate it if you send me commits for genuinely meaningful additions, bug fixes, and optimizations. I prefer features that can be implemented without needing a toggle. Please take note that I don't want to pack this ROM with a ton of features. There are many feature-rich ROMs out there already.

7. Passes SafetyNet?
- Yes. If you want root, use Magisk and enable Magisk Hide. SafetyNet failures may also occur because ADB is enabled.

9. Does VertexOS work with other GApps, TWRPs, firmwares, SU, kernels, tweaks, Viper4Android, etc?
- Please feel free to try, but I may not give support for issues caused.

10. Deep sleep issues?
- Reboot or clean flash.

11. Mobile network issues?
- Toggle airplane mode to see if it fixes the problem. Please check your APN and Preferred Network Type in Mobile Network Settings. If your APN is missing, please share the APN you want me to add.

12. Google Camera / OP3T front camera doesn't work?
- You'll need HAL3 enabled. VertexOS has HAL1 enabled by default. To enable HAL3 please flash the HAL3 Enabler. This may also fix front camera issues for OP3T. Be warned that you will lose OnePlus Camera functionality when you go HAL3.

13. Trustzone or Assert failed error 7?
You're using an incompatible firmware.

14. Why is the security patch in "About phone" outdated?
This ROM tracks CAF, which lags behind AOSP by a bit. However, you shouldn't be worried about this because CAF brings in the latest security commits even when the stated security patch level in "About phone" is outdated. Trust me, I've compared the commits of our CAF tag with the latest AOSP branch commits, and also with the Android Security Bulletin. Please just wait patiently for CAF to update the security patch string. I can easily change it and 'cheat' you guys, but I'm never going to do such a thing. So please be patient and know that your device has the security patches.

15. Creating unofficial builds of VertexOS
I have no qualms with it. If your builds are public, please do the following:
* Share proper links to the sources you used
* Provide clear credits to developer @joshuous
* Do NOT ask for donations
If you want to port and maintain VertexOS for another device in the longer term, send me a PM and we can discuss more.

16. Facing odd drains and issues with apps (message notifications not showing)?
* Stop restoring them with Titanium Backup
* Stop using hacky tweaks

17. Google Play Services drains?
* Clean flash
* Stop restoring everything with Titanium Backup

18. Losing Magisk root?
* Don't enable the BusyBox option

19.Can I dirty flash over previous builds?
* Yes but you may face some issues.

20.Is it Pre-rooted?
* NO.
