Hey Guys I put together a Q&A thread for this rom to prevent tons of new threads about rom Specific questions from new users.. Please feel free to post any questions here.

1 As Always there is no Flaming, name calling or the such.
2 No question is too noobish, But please look for your answer first.

Now for the info needed to help. In your post make sure to included the version of the rom you are using, modem, kernel, ext...

Also please give it some time for your question to be answered.

I am subscribed to this thread. All questions will be answered as quickly as possible. If it is not possible for me to answer, someone else from Team Komin will.

What is Andromeda?
Andromeda is Giorgio Armani's private build. When Georgio Armani asked Samsung for a phone, the result was the GT-i9010 Armani. Then, when AT&T and Rogers asked Samsung to build a phone, the same hardware was given to them and called SGH-i897 and SGH-i896 respectively. The difference is that AT&T and Rogers added alot of bloatware to their packages. Andromeda is, in essence, a pure Captivate without advertisements, bloatware, and services which cost you money. Andromeda is maintained by Team Komin. It is designed to be the build you settle down with after you're done hopping around. It has all the creature comforts and luxuries you'd expect from a name like Armani.

Who is Team Komin?
Team Komin is a group of open-source developers and professionals who share an interest in our beloved Captivates. We bring the lovely mesh of Andromeda's unmatched speed and beauty to your phone.
People of Team Komin: http://code.google.com/p/teamkomin/people/list

What is Version 1, Version 2, and Andromeda3
Version 1 releases are unskinned. Version 2 releases are skinned. Andromeda3 was released after Version 1 and 2 to eliminate confusion.

Where can I find Andromeda?
We have our official builds here: http://files.teamkomin.com/
We have a mirror here: http://code.google.com/p/teamkomin/downloads/list
The current full release version is always here, bookmark it: http://files.teamkomin.com/Andromeda...edaCurrent.zip
Current Stable Version

http://files.teamkomin.com/Andromeda...edaCurrent.zip


How do I install Andromeda?
Andromeda is a Clockwork mod package. Here are some directions for getting started. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=884364
Here is a video which covers 2.2 installation.

I think i've found a bug! Where can I report it?
Right here. There are several other options:
Our 1.3 release discussion: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=12421385
Bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/teamkomin/issues/list

You guys are open source, right? Where can I see the development?
Our kernels are developed here: https://github.com/TeamKomin
We package our distributions here: http://code.google.com/p/teamkomin/

I heard you have nightly builds, where are they?
Nightly builds, when active, are built at 0200CST and synchronized to the servers directly afterwards:
This was the last nightly built, it is generated, uploaded and symlinked at our servers at 2AM every night: http://files.teamkomin.com/Andromeda...edaNightly.zip
Nightly Builds: http://files.teamkomin.com/Andromeda/nightlies/

What's a nightly build?
During the development process we like to test the rom. We make a build which is generated and transferred at non-peak hours... At night. We call them nightly builds. They are our automated system of alpha, beta and release candidate testing. They should be considered unstable and only for Developers, beta testers, and the brave. You will likely want to use Andromeda3. In the event that an issue is discovered, reported, and fixed, you may want to try a Nightly Build to see if it solved your problem.
Current Nightly Build

So can I use this rom on my European I9010, as my device is very laggy in its default state.

Thanks

Thanks for prompt reply...Anything I should be aware of regarding modem and kernels - being a US build?

I was told Captivate kernels are different.

Here's the first dumb question
I flashed 1.2 and I really like the rom, but I would like the orange theme.


I read this at the start of the Amdromeda 1.2 thread.
Quote:

From now on V2 ( themed version ) will be posted as 'update.zip' like a standard theme ...

Where do I find the update zip or otherwise get the orange theme?

Exclamation Question regarding V2.1 orange theme
Really like the orange theme. There were some minor bugs in the 2.1 theme. I don't know if you are already aware of these. See the following post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post11372092
