    Post [ROM][OREO][NEXUS 6P] crDroid Android 4.7.2 [FINAL][21 DEC]

    Thanks dev! I really like the amoled black system theme in the newest build - it almost rids me entirely of the need to use Substratum.

    Post [GUIDE] how to bring back to life dead nexus 6p , hard brick.

    Thank you so much! I messed up my 6P when I tried to flash a bootloader image via Flashfire. I hadn't been in a brick this bas since the good old days of Gingerbread and ROM Manager! For anyone else having similar issues, I got my dead 6P to be recognized as QHSUSB_bulk eventually in Windows 7...

    Post [GUIDE] How to port Bluez to Kitkat, Lollipop & Marshmallow

    CM uses BlueZ 4 in the Android versions prior to 4.2.2, just like AOSP used to. They didn't bother updating it from BlueZ 4 to BlueZ 5 because those prior versions of Android are deprecated and no longer worked on.

    I'm pretty sure I have that "cl->AppendSwitch(cc::switches::kEnableMapImage);" line commented out with a "//" in my build tree, so I believe it should be present in that build. Try changing the value of "persist.webview.provider" from "classic" to "chromium" (or comment out/remove that line...

    Hi, Codename13 here. Sorry I've been away from XDA for a long time. I've had a 6P for a month now, and I don't think I'll come back to developing for the Ace II X. I do, however, have a build of Omni 4.4.4, on my old Ace II X, that has bluetooth working. It'll also require a slightly modified...

    Post Call quality is a bit disappointing

    IIRC, this is a common issue with some Nexus devices. I saw somewhere that a 6P owner fixed the issue on their device by changing a line in the build.prop, as done here on the Nexus 5. Apparently you have to change the value of "persist.audio.influence.voicecall" from "true" to "false". Of...

I was attempting to build OmniROM up until a few days ago and comparing it to CyanogenMod code, I saw that OmniROM's code looks...

    Hi spezi77, I have a few questions about your work. Do you use PMEM or ION or a hybrid in the kernel for this ROM? Which Adreno libraries/drivers do you use? Is SELinux set as enforcing, permissive, or disabled in this ROM (and do you have SELinux policies written for your device)? I'm asking...

    s7560m That's great news! We don't actually need a 3.4 kernel for Lollipop. Heck, we could manage with our existing kernel and PMEM but it would require a lot of compatibility hacks and fixes. There are a few Adreno 2xx devices with ION and a 3.0.x kernel using Adreno drivers from 4.3/4.4, so we...

    Thank you. This worked wonderfully! No FCs or problems after restoring my ext4 data backup onto my f2fs formatted data partition. I had to mount /cache in the init.qcom.rc as f2fs as well, because it wouldn't mount on its own in the fstab.qcom file. I think it's most likely because we need to...

    Wait, so you did get a custom ROM to mount the f2fs formatted /data partition using init.qcom.rc? That's strange, because apparently in Android 4.3, all the mount lines were unified to the fstab(.qcom.rc for us) file. Plus, I couldn't get it to mount using the init.qcom.rc in my Omni 4.4. I...

    TWRP only mounts F2FS if it is a newer version (I'm using draekko's build of TWRP 2.8.0.1) and if the kernel that TWRP was built with has F2FS support implemented (and enabled, I think). If you want to play around with it for now, just extract the recovery image, replace the kernel in the...

I changed the filesystems for /data and /cache in fstab.qcom from ext4 to f2fs. I also repacked an existing...

    Actually, we technically could go without a 3.4.x kernel for Lollipop, but it would be hell to port over legacy changes and all at this point. Perhaps in a year or so, legacy developers will begin to adapt legacy code for Lollipop, but I don't feel like waiting that long. The other option, other...

    When you say you got webview working in your build of SlimKat, do you mean you got Classic Webview working or Chromium webview working?

    A page or two back, there should be a build of 2.8.0.1 that someone built. Try it out please. If it doesn't work for you, I'll see if I can get a build of 2.8 booting. F2FS custom ROMs would be really nice and probably really useful for getting Lollipop speedier.
