OmniLight v2 (with Multiwindow!!!)

Hi guys today I present to you a lightweight version of OmniROM 4.4.4 for our beloved A500. This version of the rom has lots of bloatware removed and is very snappy and fast. So I hope you guys will try out and give your feedback thank you!

Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/89...niLight_v2.zip

GApps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942

Instructions:
1. It is recommended that you use CWM 6.0.4.5 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2583710 to flash this rom.

2. Download SuperSU from http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu/ and put it on your device.

3. Now flash the rom and SuperSU zip and GApps in recovery. (Seems like there is a problem when using gapps on tegra 2 devices. I personally think that the only important thing in gapps is the play store and play store was automatically installed with omnirom and i did not even flash gapps. Can anyone try not flashing gapps and getting back to me if play store is there???)

4. Now format cache and dalvik cache. If you are coming from another rom or another android version please format data.

5. Reboot and profit!

6. If you are experiencing Sleep of Death issues, take a look at this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1663789

7. To use multiwindow, go to recent apps, long press on app/s, and select it from there.

Features:
- Has Multiwindow!!! (To use multiwindow, go to recent apps, long press on app/s, and select it from there.)

Doesn't seem to be wanting to bring up the Play store or any way to bring up my apps.

Home button doesn't seem to work. Can't really do anything it just is a generic launcher.. Too many features on here, can't get into settings to even turn on the wifi. Now I used twrp to flash this so do you think that might be a problem? It seemed to flash okay but would not flash the Su zip..

I did have to put gapps from the other 4.4.2 Omni ROM because it would not show up on the stock rom as is. Said it was not available.

Thank you for the feedback. I have updated the thread to include GApps. And yeah you have to flash this rom with CWM.

I think it would be wise to note that a KK compatible recovery will flash it properly, others may or may not. After downloading, I'm quite pleased with it. The custom launcher is (in this user's opinion) far better then the default launcher included with KK. This port of Omni doesn't have some of the bugs I've noticed in my other Omni port but this one does seem to have a few minor setup issues.

Issues:
Setup wizard opens to a blank screen and the back arrow must be used to get to the actual setup window.
Name setup in the wizard always leads to a crash unless both fields are empty.

Other then that, I can't see any other bugs off hand. This post was made in this port, BTW.

Would using a different gapps (gapps minimal 4.4.2) make the calendar not want to sync?

But it would be better if you used CWM 6.0.4.5 which i posted 6 months earlier. And for calendar problems that is because i excluded it from the rom you can download the calendar (there are two apks) from the link i posted and put them into the system/app folder

Ok installed calendar apk, and the calendar storage..the calendar storage crashes saying calendar not available.. Calendar won't open. When storage is uninstalled the calendar opens fine but still won't sync. Google doesn't seem to sync all the way, shows sync error.

Had to adjust the minimum speed to 312 for the CPU in the performance of options due to the crackling in the audio sounds great now.
