Welcome to Asylum Omni 4.4.2, a small, fast, blacked-out and smooth Rom. This Asylum edition is lighter than the official OmniRom.







What does Asylum Omni have to offer?


Custom Asylum Omni kernel with additional governors.
Unnecessary apps are chucked out.
Settings, keyboard, clock, phone, InCallUI, messaging, contacts, SystemUI and framework blacked out, no official AOSP grey
UI tweaks
Ad blocking hosts
Good battery life
Speed and smoothness
Addon.d scripts for backing up your custom DPI, softkeys and restoring them even after a full wipe and flash
Cherry picks of good unmerged Omni stuff
Completely bonkers community
No 23 lockscreens, sorry












Team Asylum

antiochasylum, Rom creator, a nice guy and a genuine Texan straight shooter
chasmodo, most respected, friendly and classy n7000, mako, grouper & Xperia Z Jenkins

How often will the Rom be updated?

Whenever there are some good merges to source or bug fixes a build will be published. On a longer side it will be a weekly build, but more often than ever you can expect a build sooner than that.


How do I flash it?

You must be on a compliant recovery. To pen down my experience, latest TWRP works best with this roma for me.[/URL]!


If coming from previous Asylum Omni 4.4.2 or official Omni 4.4.2 and you want to do a dirty install:

1. boot into recovery
2. flash the Rom
3. flash the latest SuperSU
4. reboob


If coming from previous Asylum Omni 4.4.2 and you'd like a clean flash:

1. boot into recovery
2. do a full wife
3. flash the Rom
4. flash the latest SuperSU
5. reboob


If coming from anywhere else:
1. copy Gapps, SuperSU and Asylum Omni Zips to your SDCard
3. reboob into Recovery
4. Wipe data and dalvik cache
7. flash Asylum Omni zip
8. flash Gapps zip
9. flash SuperSU
10. reboob
11. Don't restore system stuff or apps + data using Titanium, it might cause issues



Downloads:






removed-apks-flashabe.zip

at Bangsti's

Removed-apks-flashable.zip contains the following:

Apollo
DSP Manager
Email
Exchange
LiveWallpapers
LiveWallpapersPicker
Photo Table
Pinyin IME
SoundRecorder
VideoEditor

Launch the zip, go to /system/app, delete the apps you don't need and flash in recovery.




What is not working:

Whatever doesn't work in official Omni



Special thanks goes to:

Freaking Annoying Questions (aka FAQ) by @AA1973



A word of caution :As this asylum is frequented by male and female inmates, the terminology "mate" or "bro" does not apply.
Our fellow lady inmates, Corininha, vet-note and lady-27, do deserve the proper form of address, which is "fellow inmate", but not bro, brother or mate.
Milady may be an alternative, but not guaranteed
Insane, yes, it definitely is - welcome to the asylum! Enjoy your stay

If you miss some impotent™ things in here, give me a ring - but not with the triangle Thanks
Now let's get started.

» Developer Options missing (USB debugging etc):
About phone > Build number > hit build number 7 times in order to "become a developer"
Since Android 4.2.2, not everybody should become a developer in order to enable #USB #debugging and change the animations to 0.5

» Density changes aka #ChangeDPI
Change the actual 320dpi to e.g. chasmodo's favourite 178dpi:
Use ROM Toolbox Lite/Pro and the built-in build.prop Editor to change the setting in ro.sf.lcd_density=320 to ro.sf.lcd_density=178 {or a dpi setting of your choice}
Do it manually via a capable root file explorer and edit the parameters above to your liking.
No other tool or app to use.

» Status 7 / Installation aborted while coming from PhilZ kernel (Version < 3.99)
*Install/Flash a CM10/CM10.1 kernel from Chasmodo's kernel suppository™ or use at least PhilZ latest version *3.99* or later (4.40 ATM)
*Stay in CWM (DO NOT REBOOT SYSTEM)
*Go to Advanced > Choose Reboot into recovery
*Proceed as written/stated in OP
Word of caution: if you still post "Haaalp. Status 7 - WTF!", you may get flamed! Facepalm yourself...

Which leads to the next impotent feature of an Android phone, which is powered by Google:
»The SEARCH function
If you miss an important feature like S-Apps (memo, note, ...) or multi-widows, smart stay etc. Do a proper SEARCH!


»Concerning #S-Apps (memo, note, ...) or multi-widows, smart stay etc. -> they require Touchwiz-framework and will NOT work on this ROM

» Battery train™ aka battery drain:
Look for ahalford's thread for wake locks and better battery life. Amazing thread and a very helpful guy, if you install better battery stats and (in addition, not necessarily) CPU Spy
Furthermore, you can install Wakelock Detector from the PrayStore, which is a nice tool as well.

ahalford's thread for wake locks and better battery life
BBS by chamonix: (DL and support thread)
CPU Spy Plus by realgpp: (DL and support thread)
***
Both apps are free for xda users. Of course, feel free to use the paid versions from the play store to support the devs.
Chas' statement concerning wake locks:


PlayStore broplem > flash Multi DPI play store (scroll down to Multi DPI Store)
»If you experience broplems with Playstore at stock DPI, flash Multi DPI play store (see below) or try to do the following:
1. go to Settings/apps/all
2. locate the Playstore app, delete its data and cache
3. find Google services and do the same
4. Reboob™
5. if this doesn't work, delete and re-add your Google account

@chasmodo's homescreen layout (20130105)
Yes, I always use 178 and Widgetsoid, a free app.

What you see on the homescreen are just Widgetsoid's 3 widgets, plus digital clock.



If you want a homescreen like mine, first disable dock in Nova. Then open your widgets drawer and select either 1 * 5 Widgetsoid switcher (vertical widget) or 5 * 1 (horizontal), and swipe it onto your homescreen. Repeat the procedure as many times as you like.



Then start Widgetsoid and edit your widgets. You can choose any toggles imaginable and any app shortcut you like. These below are just your network toggles; you also
have a ton of screen, sound and other toggles, plus 'shortcuts' which you use for your apps.



After that you can theme your widgets to your liking.



Finally, you can save your widgets in 'profiles', so you can restore them in a second after each new Rom flash.


HOW TO ENABLE SOFT KEYS (20130108)
qemu.hw.mainkeys=1 as default in build.prop setting
NavBar is disabled by default in the Rom. This is the easiest way to enable NavBar if you want to:

1. download and install ROM Toolbox Lite(excellent and free multi-tool BTW)
2. start RTL and grant it root access
3. once the app is launched, swipe from right to left to get to the right panel
4. tap on 'build.prop editor'
5. dismiss the warning/information popup
6. scroll down until you locate qemu.hw.mainkeys
7. tap on it and change the value to '0' (zero) manually or via drop-down menu

8. save and RTL will ask you if you want to reboob, accept
9. after the reboob is done, go to Settings/System/Navigation bar and customize it to your liking

When you want to disable NavBar, just launch RTL again, go to build.prop editor and change qemu.hw.mainkeys back to 1.


Advanced reboot options have moved (2013-02-19)
Reboot into recovery missing?
Activate the advanced reboot options in developer options and tick "advanced reboot" in order to get into recovery or bootloader mode.
Otherwise you'll have only the reboot option.



How to enable PIE… (27/03/2013)
0) Enabled Expanded Desktop feature in Power Menu is necessary (system settings > system > power menu > expanded desktop > status bar hidden or visible)
1) Make sure Navigation bar (Soft keys) is activated by changing qemu.hw.mainkeys=1 to qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
2) Reboot needed to change taking effect
3) Enable Pie in System settings > System > PIE controls
4) Check left and/or right side as they work best
5) Enable/Activate Expanded Desktop with power menu
6) Enjoy the pie
7) Disable expanded desktop to "Un-PIE" [/QUOTE]

Experimental use of PIE: check only one side, e.g. left.
Open Pie on the left side, until you can see all information (time, network, battery etc) and then wait until you'll see the other trigger points (top, right and bottom) and drag your pie on another trigger area, for instance on the right side and let it drop when the circle is filled with colour. Then open the pie from the "new side". You can see the change as well in system settings > system > PIE controls. It should state "right" now.

Needs some training but works.
Enjoy.

#Hangouts
Google Hangouts (replaces talk) in PlayStore (15/05/2013)

If you fancy getting the new HANGOUTS app to replace GTalk,
log into the WEB PlayStore with your browser and search for Hangouts. Hit install and it will automagically update GTalk to Hangouts.
Other solution: uninstall GTalk via Titanium Backup (or similar app), reboot may be needed and install Hangouts via PlayStore App.
Done.

#PlayStore
MULTI DPI PlayStore update to 4.1.6(15/05/2013)

White and Inverted Multi DPI Play Store v4.1.6 for JB v4.2.2
White Multi DPI Play Store v4.1.6 for JB v4.2.2 - Download
Inverted Multi DPI Play Store v4.1.6 for JB v4.2.2 - Download
Flashable zip files via recovery as always.
