I am leaving the android scene for good. Its been a long time and I wanna move on. There won't be any more updates for any of my roms.

Good luck to all of you!!!
That's sad for a great fan-base of the best moto g4 ROM. Respect your decision of moving on for own betterment. You will be missed to a great extent. And your creation of Invicta is truly unbeatable by other devs.. thanks a lot for all your dedication.

Can't wait to see you back just in case....

Just wanted to stop by and say Thank You for everything that you've done for us over the years. You were the one that started my journey into android customization back on the Mega platform.

I can't even put into words how much I've grown because of you. You will always be missed and I wish the best for you and your family.

I completely understand how it is. Its a passion that becomes not so much over time and will take its toll on you. Most of us know why don't we.

Go drive a street corse fast! Lap after Lap. Enjoy your life @Silesh.Nair. Breath and be happy You need it. Its beyond well deserved. Just wanted to let you know that from me to you. :)

    InvictaOS is based on LineageOS with some cool extra features. It can be used without any need to have Google application's installed.


    4.15 is the final build

     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Keep these is mind before you flash

    Please read the help thread before you point out issues here. It has been created specifically to help new users to adapt to custom roms easier. Before you post your issue, please check if it has already been reported and if a fix has already been mentioned.

    When you post a bug or mention an issue, it is assumed that you are running no additional mods that could cause that bug/issue. If you have made any additional changes, you need to mention that when you mention the bug/issue, else it confuses all users and I waste time looking to a bug that doesn't even exist. (1,2,3) is a classic example of this.

    I have given in to frequent complaints of volume being too low on this rom and have restored it to the values found in other roms. That said, I will be in no way responsible if you hurt your ears as a result of the high volume. You have been warned.

    Plus users take note. You need to be running an N modem to fix fingerprint issues.

    Reliance Jio users, take note. Jio needs mobile data to work. If you change mobile data to a different sim in a dual sim environment, Jio sim will deactivate itself. Its not a bug.

    Use Cameringo or builtin snap camera to record video. Video recording with Moto camera doesn't work. HTC camera seems to work the best.

    Additional Features

    1. Status Bar date
    2. Network Traffic Indicators
    3. Double Tap to sleep on lockscreen
    4. Ambient display battery indicator
    5. Additional QS Tiles
    6. Superuser indicator toggle
    7. Lockscreen charging information
    8. Bluetooth easy toggle
    9. Wifi easy toggle
    10. Toggle to disable suggestions & tile summaries
    11. Unlink notification volume
    12. Pixel navigation bar and animation
    13. Full Substratum OMS theme support
    14. Alarm blocker
    15. Wakelock blocker
    16. Selinux Switch
    17. and more....

    5. Format/Wipe system, cache, dalvik, data

    A video review of the rom can be accessed here. Thank @fr3d0x for this.


    Note that the screenshots seen above are not the default look of the ROM. It comes with Pixel UI by default. Screenshots are using Coalfield substratum theme and Retrorika icon pack.


    You will be notified via the OTA app when there is an update.

    Known issues

    1. App restore using hypershell in Titanium backup doesn't work. Data restore works. Works from v4.14.

    Reporting Bugs

    You are allowed to report bugs only in this thread.
    1. Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    2. If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    3. If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. The following is a useful format to follow.

    What is your--
    Radio (baseband):
    ROM version:
    Gapps version:
    Did you--
    restore with titanium backup:
    reboot after having the issue:
    Are you using--
    a task killer:
    a non-stock kernel:
    LOSSettings/Performance settings (other than stock):
    Dual SIM:
    other modifications:
    Provide any additional information (observations/frequency of problem/last version it worked on/etc) as needed:

    Custom Splash Screen

    If you need a custom splash screen with Invicta logo, check this post. Thanks to
    @1chrome for the initiative.

    Useful information

    1. Some users have reported that they are unable to share screenshots/images from the gallery or filemanager. Though I personally have not come across this issue, if you do have this issue, have a look here for a possible fix.
    2. Please make sure that your DPI under Settings->Display->Display Size is set to default, else motorola camera doesn't seem to work. Users of model xt1622 who have reported camera issues also check if you have made any changes to your dpi. Thanks to @zeomal for pointing this out.
    3. For app sharing applications like xender,shareit etc.. to work, you need to disable mobile data. Check this post.

    O update

    First step towards getting InvictaO is done. Compiled a lineage-15.0 build.

    Next is to see if it boots, it not get it to boot, then bug fixes and finally adding back all Invicta features. Lot's of work ahead.
    An update on O.

    I have finished all the base work for the ROM. I can add features when required.

    I can now concentrate on fixing the device side. Except camera and a couple of FC's(Bluetooth only the first time you boot and MotoActions when you receive calls because of a proximity sensor issue), its performs OK.
    Update on InvictaO

    Step 2 done.

    Most of the important stuff still doesn't work like RIL, data, gps, camera & fps. Audio, video playback, fm, sensors, bluetooth, vibrator & wifi (partially) are working. Moto actions works too.

    I will post a build when the major stuff starts working which is still a long way off. Screenshots attached.
    And we have camera working.....

    First official build soon.... :good:
