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?
Rom compiled with Linaro 4.8 toolchain, kernel with Linaro 4.7
Build optimization upgraded from O2 to O3
Custom Asylum Omni kernel with additional governors.
Unnecessary apps are chucked out.
Settings, keyboard, clock, phone, InCallUI, messaging, contacts, calendar, Apollo, DSp Manager, SystemUI and framework blacked out, no official AOSP grey
Safe Omni kernel and recovery with eMMC_CAP_ERASE disabled.
The kernel also contains Exynos security fix
Unlike the official Omni, this Rom includes SuperSU by default, so there's no need to reflash it after every Rom flash

Ad blocking hosts
Custom Asylum wallpaper app which gives you access to over 300 black and gray weird wallpapers (thanks, Bangsti)
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
What does Asylum Omni 4.4.2 look and feel like:
antiochasylum, Rom creator, a nice guy and a genuine Texan straight shooter
chasmodo, bad tempered, caustic and grouchy n7000, Xperia Z, and Flo Jerkins™
Jack The Ripper, our Linux scripting genius, a proper English gentleman with a penchant for getting kicked out of clubs
Sunny2303, well spoken, gentle and generous n7100 (and variants), Find5 and Flo 2013 Jerkins™
bangsti, the kindest man on God's Earth, LG Jerkins™
jejecule, a polite and diligent Barca fan (those two things don't often go together), i9300, Find5 and Jfltexx Jerkins™
Moepda, another genuine and ubiquitous English gentleman with a kind word for everyone

How often will the Rom be updated?
There'll be a new version as soon as there is at least 6-7 new Omni merges, or if there's only one crucial change.
It could be daily, or every few days.
How do I flash it?
You must be on a safe kernel and recovery. If you are not sure, check this thread out to see which ones are safe!
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
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
If coming from anywhere else:
1. download Raw r4 kernel from here
2. copy Gapps, Raw kernel and Asylum Omni Zips to your SDCard
3. reboob into Recovery
4. flash Raw kernel
5. reboob recovery <--- not the system, just the recovery
6. Wipe data and dalvik cache
7. flash Asylum Omni zip
8. flash Gapps zip
10. Don't restore system stuff or apps + data using Titanium, it might cause issues
Removed-apks-flashable.zip contains the following:
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
