Dirty Unicorns (DU) is a custom ROM originally based off AOKP, but now based from OmniROM. DU brings you a great mix of stability and customization. The idea to start a ROM like this was purely out of boredom, but later turned into a form of an addiction, a good one. We began to have fun while still doing things the right way. By doing so, we received high praise from not only our users but by fellow developers of other ROMs that enjoy seeing things done the right way. This ROM will always be free of charge without any strings attached or any of it's developers luring you into donating or any form of "pay to flash".

"Give credit and thanks where is due!" That's something that has fuel the way we do things! With that said, we would like to go ahead and credit those individuals and groups that have made this ROM possible with their original code and contributions to the Android community.....

| OmniROM | AOKP | ChaOS | Paranoidandroid | SlimROMs | Preludedrew | Team Black Out | Official Testers / Translators |

Believe it or not, we are human and we do forget things. If we have left someone out of the credit/thanks list, just PM us and we'll gladly add on to the list.

- Copy the ROM and Gapps zips to your device
- Make sure you have TWRP or CWM Selinux compatible recovery
- If you don't know what the previous line means, flash this kernel first to get the proper recovery, then reboot the recovery (not the system)
- Wipe everything but your external/internal storage
- Flash the Rom followed by the Gapps and reboot

- All subsequent flashes are easy: just flash the Rom zip and reboot, no wipes or Gapps needed

Screenrecording does not work, a known Omni bug
If you lose signal bars after tapping on Settings/Dirty tweaks/Status bar color, pull down Quick Settings, toggle Airplane mode on/off and the bars will be back (the signal is OK all the time, it's just the icon)
Attempt to set custom image as lockscreen wallpaper will result in a System UI FC/restart boobloop, so please do not try it until we find a fix

Other then that, nothing that I've seen, but feel free to post what you find

Hi @chasmodo,

Up until now, Carbon was fast becoming my fav rom (with most tweaks).... But with this, it has by far SUPERSEDED it...

Awesome, much appreciate your work, and with this rom... so many amazing (and useful features, esp Driving Mode).

Thank you, Lister
