Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this Android 7 (Nougat)?
A: Yes, this is Android 7.1.2

Q: What code is Oct-N based on?
A: This version of Oct-N is based on LineageOS 14.1

Q: Why isn't there XYZ feature?
A: Shoot us a Suggestion if you want to see something added. While we are not going to promise to implement, we will always look into it

Q: But all the others have..
A: ROM developers, build something they want to use. The ROM developer that includes something they won't run implies less than 100% effort to ensure it does work. As a team, we have similar goals and objectives. If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don't include (or don't want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-N.

Q: What about root?
A: Root is removed by default (user will be able to flash which ever root zip they want)

Bugs happen. Our testers are very good at breaking things, but no where near as good as the rest of the Android public. In order to investigate and fix issues, we need the help of the users who are going to report them. The Android OS has many nifty features to help us in this, but only if we can engage the user to assist us.

Logs, Logcat, and the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB)
Like any other OS, Android has multiple log files that are generated and record the goings-on of the system. As a user, you have two basic ways to view and pull these to send to us. Without the information in the logfiles, there simply is not a whole lot of information to go on.

Log file APKs
Team OctOs recommends SysLog from the Android Market. This application will allow you to selectively pick any (or all) of the system logs, compress them into a .ZIP file, and allow you to save, email, move to your Copy/DropBox/Cloud Storage account, etc.

ADB Logcat
The Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) is a powerful tool available from Google as part of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Used for many things, being able to selectively see, in real-time, what your device is doing cannot be downplayed. While there is more setup involved, if you are doing consistent ROM flashing, you really should invest the time to get setup properly to do it.

ADB Logcat tutorial here: How to create a logcat log

Basic Instructions:
  1. Download ROM .zip file and MD5 file, and grab your favorite Open Gapps package
  2. Reboot to Recovery (Note: Use Reboot to Recovery from Power Menu, Hardware-based boot to recovery, or adb reboot recovery - ROM Manager or similar software is NOT supported)
    --- TWRP is the ONLY recovery Team OctOs uses - We do not support flashing on CWM ---
    The Oct-N ROM installation script will automatically wipe /system, /cache, and /dalvik-cache. There is no need to do these before or after flashing the ROM unless you are instructed to by your Gapps Provider. When dirty flashing weekly updates, you MUST reflash Gapps along with any other files, apps, custom mods or kernels etc.. (anything that resides in system partition)
  3. Flash ROM, GApps and any additional .ZIP files
  4. Reboot

The foundation of the Android OS is the fact that is it open-source. We have all code we use internally in the creation of Oct-N available on our GitHub repositories.

Unless otherwise specified, all Oct-N builds kernel souce can be found on github at Team-OctOS.

Before anyone asks, I'll put what I plan to do for updates.

I could do nightlies, I have quite a bit of spare time, however I don't want to. Why? Why would I if a day has seen low github activity on OctOS' side, and there haven't been changes? Therefore, I shall regularly check their GitHub, and update if there are notable changes. I will try to update at least once a week regardless of GitHub activity to sync with latest LineageOS/AOSP sources.
This would likely change if this becomes official, I would follow OctOS' guidelines the the updating schedule

I've tried this ROM before on my T-Mobile Galaxy S3. It's a pretty awesome ROM. Thanks for building it for bacon. 😀

I tried this ROM for a while and this is how it went out for me.

Almost all the time on WiFi. About 45 minutes on LTE.
Lots of YouTube (virtually 60% of this cycle), Telegram using Plus Messenger, WhatsApp, Streaming music through Spotify for about an hour and some browsing using arter97's Chromium.

The ROM is really smooth and gives decent battery life on stock. I could not find any bugs on it so far, seems pretty stable as well.

I hope to see more from this dev. Thanks for this port.
