    Thank you. I do have more questions though...

    Can I not use versions of Bliss OS newer than version 11? When you say that if I install Bliss OS 11 that I should install specific kernels, do you mean that I should look for ISO's with those specific kernels
    You can use any bliss os version, but bliss os 11 is more stable and have ARM apps support. You can install any kernel on any bliss os version with the gearlock recovery. My friend also have a i5 10th gen processor and m.2 ssd, he cannot boot any iso with kernel 4.19, he uses kernel 5.10

    Thank you.

    But just so I understand correctly, is gearlock installed before of after the OS?

    Hi, I'm trying to get bliss os working on my surface pro 4 but have 2 issues, the first is with the keyboard cover, the keyboard works fine in the iso in grub but after installing and booting from the system grub isntead of usb the keyboard cover does not work so I have to plug in a usb keyboard to be able to select a grub boot option. The other issue is that I cannot get touch to work , I have tried 11.13 and 11.14 and it doesn't work on any of them. I have downloaded the correct firmware and copied them to the correct locations as the install guide says but after rebooting touch still doesn't work. I also tried on 11.13 installing the 4.19 gearlock kernel and firmware from that and touch still doesn't work. I'm downloading the builds from the blissos website and doing 64-bit > microsoft surface

    Help would be appreciated thankyou

    Can anybody tell me how to setup Bliss OS 11.12/11.13 on VMWare Workstation 16 Player, without adding
    Code:
    nomodeset xforcevesa
    to boot entry i.e with hardware acceleration? Because Android x86 does run properly without any of this. I suspect the cause of this to be the use of newer kernel, in that case how can I downgrade the kernel to a working version? (4.9 kernel on Android x86 works)

    Virtualbox doesn't work either

    So happy that we went through the trouble of adding these types of guides to our wiki, how else will nobody ever read them?

    Thank you for modern software.
    I have successfully installed the Bliss OS 11.14 to VirtualBox.
    I have tried to launch it in VirtualBox from Live CD before.
    It is possible to use USB Bluetooth RTL8761B from this Live CD.
    I have tried to turn on USB Bluetooth RTL8761B from installed to VirtualBox Bliss OS 11.14 but without success. It always turned off when I exited from menu.
    Why installed to VirtualBox Bliss OS does not allow to enable Bluetooth?
    What can be different in Live CD and in installed Bliss OS ?

    Bluetooth works in VirtualBox when Bliss OS loaded from Live CD.
    It is possible to enable bluetooth adapter from menu and to find bluetooth devices.
    It is strange that in the same Bliss OS it is impossible to enable bluetooth from menu,
    when Bliss OS installed to virtual hard drive.

      Team Bliss is pleased to present to you
      Bliss-OS for PCs based on Android 10

      An Open Source OS, based on Android, that incorporates many customizations options and added security features. And it is available for just about any Chromebook, Windows/Linux PC or tablet released in the last 4 years


      Our focus is to bring the Open Source community a quality OS that can run on all your devices as a daily driver, syncing your apps + settings + customizations across all platforms you run Bliss on.

      Bliss-OS comes with a wide selection of customization options from around the Android community as well as unique options developed by our team. With so many options available, you’ll find it hard not to enjoy the Blissful experience.


      First, a little bit about this project...
      Starting in Android Pie, Bliss OS took a different approach to building Android for PC's. Taking inspiration from @phhusson 's Treble methods, and Intel's Project Celadon, and Android-x86 Project, we have now adapted that method to be a bit more streamlined, and packaged it up so that it can work a bit more dynamically. The manifest can be found at: https://github.com/BlissRoms-x86/manifest/tree/q and the new patching system and build script are all included in https://github.com/BlissRoms-x86/vendor_x86/tree/q
      These Bliss OS releases will be considered the Bleeding Edge of development for Android on x86, and we will be marking most of our additions to be sent down the ladder to our Android-PC project & hopefully Android-x86 Project as well.

      !!UPDATE!! 07.01.2020
      These builds are now made with Android-Generic project

      Yep1l4L.png

      Made with Android-Generic v1.1 - Android for PCs & GSI devices

      AG For ROM developers
      Android-Generic means there is finally something out there that helps to bring all the PC commits/setup/etc to your current ROM's build environment, working towards making the process easier for everyone involved moving forward. We also added a few smart features to the vendor toolkit as well, like commit resolution resource sharing, easy methods to add your vendor, easy methods to create manifest backups, and the scripts do most of the work for you already, with the exception of fixing some patch conflicts (the toolkit is smart enough to find potential fixes on it's own based on all the devs that contribute their patch resolutions back to the main repo). We have also added the option for Customizations to be chosen/placed on top of your ROM for added customization/branding options. We're trying to change the game here and allow many more ideas for PC to arise than what Team Bliss would have been able to do on their own. All the info needed to get started can be found in the project README.md, including links to the development chats for each side of the project : https://gitlab.com/android-generic/vendor_android-generic/-/blob/q10/README.md

      AG For users of Bliss OS, Android-x86, etc.
      This means there is going to soon be a lot more options out there to choose from for running Android on your PC. And every new ROM added to the main repo means more and more ROMs will have an easier time porting their work to PCs as well.

      Now, on to more info about Bliss

      Bliss OS downloads can be a bit confusing to most users initially. We have tried to slim down the methods for which there can be differences by revamping our downloads section of the websites. For newbies, this will help a lot. For advanced users though, like all of you ;) We have a little Q&A for what the filenames mean below:

      Build Types Explained:

      Q: Bliss builds come with funny names. Why?

      A: Because we felt the need to include the various branches for Kernel, Mesa, & Firmware in the build name.
      So, when you see a name like this:
      Bliss-OS-v11.10--OFFICIAL-20190901-1611_x86_64_k-k4.19.50-ax86-ga_m-18.3.5-pie-x86-llvm80_ld-2.4.99-ma-p_dg-pie-x86_dh-pie-x86-rt-vulkan.iso
      It can be broken into 3-4 parts.
      Build ID: "Bliss-OS-v11.10--OFFICIAL-20190901-1611_x86_64"
      Kernel Branch: "_k-k4.19.50-ax86-ga"
      Mesa Branch: "_m-18.3.5-pie-x86-llvm80_"
      libdrm Branch: "_ld-2.4.99-ma-p"
      drm_gralloc Branch: "_dg-pie-x86"

      Some uncommon flags:

      drm_hwcomposer: "_dhpie-x86"
      Firmware Branch: "_fwdev-kernel.org"
      llvm Branch: "_lv18.0.3-llvm9.0"



      Q: What do the parts of the kernel names mean?
      A: When we add a batch of commits to the kernels, we like to save that version with an identifier. So the most common parts to the kernel names are as follows:
      -ax86 : Means that this kernel started off from the Android-x86 repo, or has the majority of Chih Wei's commits for that kernel
      -ma : Means this started out from Maurossi's repo. (https://github.com/maurossi/linux)
      -ga/gal : Means that this kernel also includes compatibility with Chromebook devices, from the peeps at Gallium OS (https://github.com/GalliumOS/linux)
      -ipts : Means that we are including some specific commits for the Intel IPTS touchscreens (mostly in the Surface line of devices) These builds likely won't run well on most other devices.
      -yl : Means that kernel includes the latest Intel BayTrail/CherryTrail commits from @youling257
      -jw/jwd/jd: Means that kernel includes the latest Intel BayTrail/CherryTrail commits from https://github.com/jwrdegoede/linux-sunxi

      Q: OK, So I have a Blah-Blah CPU, with a Such'n'such GPU, what builds are right for me?
      A: Well, we have a method to all our madness there. We build Bliss OS with different kernels that work as a way to make it more compatible with different types of devices. Here is the breakdown on those:
      k4.9 These are considered the most "Stable" builds, they will work across most older and some recent devices.
      k4.12-14 builds will be hard to come by, but seem to work great for some newer Atom based devices.
      k4.15+ builds will not work on some older devices, so consider these to be a little less "All-In-One"
      k4.18+ Intended for newer devices. adds some newer touchscreen support and added AMDGPU support
      k4.19+ This is our current mainline kernel branch. Intended for newer devices. Even more touchscreen support and ACPI support
      k4.20+ Intended for newer devices. Even more touchscreen support and added ARM/ATOM support and Vega GPU support
      k5.0+ This is where things will start getting tricky. Even more touchscreen support, and added support for ARM/ARM64/ATOM etc, but also a ton of Android kernel commits start making their way into things.


      Bliss OS 12.0 Alpha Downloads

      These are to be considered "in development" and are in no way intended for general use. We will expect any bug reports or issues to be accompanied by a log of some sort. Whether it's in the form of an attached file, or a link to a hastebin or something. It just has to be a log. If you post a screenshot, saying "it no workie", you won't get very far. We tend to only help those who help themselves.
      With that being said, the downloads are a little hidden this round. We added a secret download button to the website for out Bliss OS 12 alpha builds, and the secret code to reveal it is hidden within this first post (somewhere)

      Please visit https://BlissRoms-x86.github.io and the Bliss OS 12 alpha testers section is just below the Downloads section. When that section is in view, please type the secret code and the download button will show.

      Have fun reading, and hope to see some bug reports soon ;)

      This is a development alpha release, so there will be bugs.

      Known Issues:

      Sleep Issues on non-Vulkan machines. This is due to a bug in drm_gralloc/drm_hwcomposer. Haven't found a fix for it for Pie or Android 10. FIX: Run in Vulkan Mode if you can
      Lockscreen shows, then the device crashes. Please see above issue as this is a direct result of said sleep issues
      I can't install Magisk in this release, why? This is due to the lack of a ramdisk/boot image this round. Due to changes in Android 10, this was a change we needed to make.

      For All Other Issues:
      If you have a major bug to report that has not been reported already, please take the following steps to report it to us. It will save you and our team quite some time.
      Download the Catlog app from the Play Store.
      There is also a donate version which you can purchase to show appreciation.
      After downloading the Catlog app, go to the app settings, and change the log level to Debug.
      Clear all previous logs and take the exact steps to produce the error you are receiving.
      As soon as you receive the error (probably a force close), go straight into Catlog and stop the log recording.

      Manual Logging:
      Use the alt-f1 console, and in the console, type:
      Code:
      logcat > sdcard/log_name.txt

      Then alt-f7 to get back to the Android UI, and replacate the issue. When done, use alt-f1 to go back to console and ctrl-c to stop the logging.
      Copy and paste the entire log either to Hastebin or Pastebin

      Save the log, and copy and paste the link into the forum with a brief description of the error.
      Only issues with adequate info and logs attached will be taken seriously. Thank you.

Tons of updates that won't show up in the changelog, like a bunch for firmware and kernel drivers. As well as a bunch of silead touchscreen firmwares added to the mix. Thanks to a few upstream updates from Android-x86 project, we finally got Superuser added properly too (must be enabled from Developer Options in Settings), so that is also included, as well as a non-functioning switch in Settings for enabling Houdini (yeah, that's still broken). S3 sleep modes have also been tweaked a little to hopefully work better, just remember to use the Sleep option from the power menu now and not a third party app.

      Taskbar might need to be updated from Play Store for it to properly hide the nav bar, but things there are working great!!

      PLEASE NOTE I recommend everyone testing to also use this in Vulkan mode, as I am considering making it the default. This can be done from the Advanced grub menu if you installed using the bootable installer, or if you used a different grub, you will want to add "VULKAN=1" to the grub entry before the word "quiet"

      Builds being uploaded:

      • More fixes for sleep when using the power menu. Access it using Ctrl+Alt+Del or the three dot menu from Taskbar.
      • More updates to stagefright-plugins
      • Added more kernel modules for various wireless hardware
      • Some fixes for sound and volume on many devices
      • Some upstream updates from Android-x86 project's q-x86 branch
      • and much much more, check the changelog.

      Known new issues:
      • AOSP Gesture navbar might crash still
      • Sleep states aren't working right on a few machines. Some can cause SystemUI to restart
      • Power buttons still don't work on a most machines.

      Bliss OS "Yantra" 12.3 Beta Release - 2020-02-23
      !! Please remember to not quote these update posts, or any of the OP's !!

      The Bliss devs have been working hard to bring you all some awesome updates, and I have also had some time to get quite a few things done for this project too, so we're bringing you another jam-packed update of Bliss OS 12.x. Some of the biggest highlights in this update are working mic, device admin, widevine video codecs, and we added a few titlebar buttons too (these will be submitted upstream to Android-x86 Project eventually). Make sure that you read the changelogs for all the juicy details, and hit the Thanks button if things are working better this round.

      Here's a short list of some of those updates.

      Updates include:
      • New themes and theme updates
      • New fonts and font updates
      • Permissions updates for some Google apps
      • Look & Feel updates to Settings
      • Updates and fixes to dialer
      • Added Active Edge support for some devices
      • Added many new options to Blissify
      • Updates for a few LineageParts related features
      Added titlebar buttons for minimize and pip (picture in picture) mode
      • Much much more, see the changelogs

      Bugs fixed:
      • Microphone bugs are fixed
      • Sound bugs on many devices are fixed
      • Widevine is now working
      • native navbars and guesture navigation is now fixed
      • Flashlight notification fixes
      • Camera fixes (use Open-Camera)
      • Various fixes to SystemUI
      • Fixes for a few LineageParts related issues
      • Fixes in PerformanceManager

      PLEASE NOTE I recommend everyone testing to also use this in Vulkan mode or boot using gbm_gralloc, as I am considering making it the default. Vulkan mode can be done from the Advanced grub menu if you installed using the bootable installer, or if you used a different grub, you will want to add "VULKAN=1" to the grub entry before the word "quiet". If your device doesn't support Vulkan, you can add "GRALLOC=gbm" to the same place in your grub entry. Sleep states should work fine after that.

      Builds being uploaded:
      • Bliss-OS-Yantra-v12.3-android_x86_64-OFFICIAL-202002231104_k-k4.19.95-ax86-ga-rmi_m-19.3.3-ax86-q_ld-2.4.100-ax86-ma_dg-_dh-q10.0-x86_mg-_gms_cros-hd_cros-wv.iso
      • Will also be posting another build without the custom RMI fixes.

      Known new issues:
      • Sleep states aren't working right on a few machines. Some can cause SystemUI to restart
      • Power buttons still don't work on a most machines. You can now set Volume buttons to wake the device from Settings > Blissify. Sometimes Power button may work to wake the device.
      • Touch/Mouse interaction might stop sometimes upon screen on or boot. To fix this, set Swipe as your lock method in Settings
      • Sensor input is still not working, so rotation will have to be set manually
      • Some machines still have volume/sound issues, use 3rd party EQ or volume control.

      Bliss OS "Yantra" 12.2 Beta Release - 2020-02-05
      !! Please remember to not quote these update posts, or any of the OP's !!

      OK peeps, what we have here is a little departure from our last update. This update marks the start of Bliss OS - Yantra. What this will be is a separate version of Bliss OS with all the bells and whistles added. Where our last releases were mostly AOSP with a few Pixel related additions, the Yantra releases will include commits from many other Android ROM teams, like LOS, Paranoid Android, Omni, AICP, etc.
      These builds also remove some of the compatibility problems with non-x86 or universal apps we were seeing with the alphas. So for the time being, until ChromeOS updates to use Android 10 blobs, or there is an open-source solution for running Arm apps, you won't be able to run those types of apps. If you want your favorite game to work as intended on Bliss OS, then please complain to the game developer and ask them to release universal apks for their game.

      For troubleshooting, we also now have a way of specifying what hardware composer and gralloc source we want to use from Grub command line:
      HWC=xxx: Define DRM_HWComposer - options include drm, drm_minigbm, and intel.
      GRALLOC=xxx: Define DRM_Gralloc - options include gbm, minigbm, and intel.

      Difference between the builds:
      First one is using Android-x86's kernel-4.9 branch (based off kernel-4.19.95) without any changes. On this branch, some of my machines were having issues with the keyboard and touchpad, so for those devices that have troubles, we also have the second build, using the kernel branch, k4.19.80-ga-q, and this includes the removal of HID_RMI with the connections now defaulting to use HID_MULTITOUCH instead.

      UPDATE 02.07.20 - Two updated builds added to help get rid of ueventd issues.
      These builds have an updated kernel including all the commits to support chromebooks. The second build has the HID_RMI stuff added to the kernel so that some troublesome touchpads and synaptics touchscreens now work. These two builds also have some of the ARM compatibility libraries added back, so users can hopefully install a couple of the apps that were working fine before.

      PLEASE NOTE I recommend everyone testing to also use this in Vulkan mode, as I am considering making it the default. This can be done from the Advanced grub menu if you installed using the bootable installer, or if you used a different grub, you will want to add "VULKAN=1" to the grub entry before the word "quiet"

      General Updates List:
      • Added more fixes for sleep. Sleep from power menu is currently missing. Access it using Ctrl+Alt+Del or the three dot menu from Taskbar.
      • Added sleep options like double-tap to sleep from statusbar or lockscreen
      • Added Blissify app for customizations
      • Generic Kernel updates for the "kernel-4.19" build

      • and much much more, check the changelogs.

      Known new issues:
      • AOSP Gesture navbar might crash still - Future builds will include XDA's Navigation Gestures app in order to provide a solution for Gestures. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xda.nobar
      • Sleep states aren't working right on a few machines. Some can cause SystemUI to restart
      • Power buttons still don't work on a most machines. You can now set Volume buttons to wake the device from Settings > Blissify. Sometimes Power button may work to wake the device.
