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


    You need to use the recovery linked in this thread for a successful flash. Other recoveries do not work.

    RC-3 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.

    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, Simple camera or CameraMX for camera duties.

    Additional Features

    1. Network Traffic Indicators
    2. Double Tap to sleep on lockscreen
    3. Ambient display battery indicator
    4. Additional QS Tiles
    5. Lockscreen charging information
    6. Toggle to disable suggestions & tile summaries
    7. Unlink notification volume
    8. Pixel navigation bar and animation
    9. and more....

    Installation procedure

    From stock / other custom roms
    1. Plus users have to be on N modem. For models that can't flash N modem, you will have issues with fingerprint registration.
    2. Copy the ROM zip on your phone
    3. Reboot in TWRP Recovery mode
    4. Backup your phone!
    5. Format/Wipe system, cache, dalvik, data
    6. Flash/Install ROM
    7. Flash/Install Gapps of your choice.
    8. Flash root package of your choice.
    9. Reboot

    Upgrade from previous build
    1. Download the update via OTA app.
    2. Reboot in TWRP Recovery mode
    3. Format/Wipe only cache, dalvik
    4. Flash/Install ROM
    5. Flash/Install Gapps of your choice. This step is not a must.
    6. If using magisk for root, you need to flash the zip file again as the addon script doesn't seem to work correctly.
    7. Reboot

    3. Bluetooth calls does not work.
    4. Certain options in Settings may FC.

    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 /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops-0. (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.

    Someone should be happy. :p

    Read the information below before you flash the build.

    1. You need the recovery linked in the OP for a successful flash.
    2. This is still WIP. You may face issues.
    3. READ the issues list in the OP. What's not working is mentioned there.
    4. Don't post bug reports without proper logs and information. I will ignore the post otherwise.
    5. Turbo charging, Volte and pip work irrespective of what users say. Pip works on chrome ( need to be full screen mode ), maps and youtube red. It may work with other apps, but I haven't tested them.
    6. I don't want to know what works on other roms as my sources are different from them irrespective of being based on LineageOS.
    7. Camera works the same as before. Needs a reboot. Cameringo seems to be the only app that works well with flash. Other camera apps may work when not using flash.
    8. OMS commits have been merged. Make sure to use a theme that works on Oreo. It is still in testing face.
    9. Dirty flash should work fine. If you face issues, be prepared to flash clean.
    10. If you face lags, the first step is to reboot the device once.
    11. If you flash other mods, don't post bug reports.
