Known Issues
Same as latest build of CM10.1(you can read about here)
To fix low volume in incoming calls I've replaced original Phone.apk in ROM's zip file with this, doesn't work correctly on this ROM, for now download fixed Phone.apk from the link below
Videos and Browser videos don't work (I will fix this into next build)

Installation
1.Before installing any CM10/CM10.1 based ROM, update the device to Jelly Bean firmware
2.Download the ROM and GApps package
3.Put the files on SDCard
4.Reboot in recovery
5.Wipe Data/Factory reset
6.Flash the ROM with "install zip from sd card"
7A.First choose ChaOS zip file
7B.(Temporary) Choose PhoneFix.zip
7C.Now you can flash Add-ons and GApps/Slim Package
8.Reboot system
X.If you get "assert failed.......(Status 7)" error when installing the ROM, make sure you have downloaded the right version for your device!

First boot takes a while, so wait approx. 5 mins

Now I've tested it, there is no camera's apk also in CM10.1 zip package, camera is accessible from lockscreen, but libs are causing "couldn't connect to camera", have to be replaced. After dinner I attach a flashable zip with fixed libs, to use until I don't update ChaOS package :)

Camera is integrated with Gallery2.apk ;)

I saw a while ago, thanks for the info :) are you italian?

In attachment flashable zip of fixed camera libs, files taken here in post #2446, thanks to Vicenzo :) I've only made it flashable

EDIT: Updated ROM's download link in first post, now has fixed camera libs inside.

To those who download the ROM now: you don't need this attached file!

So far the ROM is smooth and nice :)
I will, ofcourse, test more and report.
Camera works from lockscreen, no icon in app drawer but i really do not care because i use Focal.
But for some reason i cannot install themes, it says installing theme and then it disappears and the theme is not in theme chooser. If i try to install it again it says theme already installed.

    After a long break where I had to fix compile errors and find what was causing them, first 4.3.1 build is ready, tomorrow I'll test it and if is ok I'll open a new thread :victory:
    10
    After a new fresh install of Lubuntu (reinstalled for more space dedicated to the partition) and repo sync almost done for ChaOS 4.2 and 4.3, I'm almost ready to build a new version with some fixes, languages added to Apollo, ChaOS kernel name instead of CM and other things.

    P.S. Sorry for double post.

    Some Screenshots with Mix Themes

    Funny thing, I did the same with Ubuntu, so maybe there will be new ChaOS for codina too:)


    Wysłane z mojego GT-i8160 przy użyciu Tapatalka

    If you ever need anything you can contact me via PM ;)


    New build available, more stable and faster than before!
    Changelog:
    -Fixed Apollo's crash when changing song from notification and added other languages to the app
    -Low in-call volume fix from the link under "Known Issues"
    -GZIP Kernel compression instead of LZMA
    -Changed Kernel name
    -Other small fixes
    You can find two add-ons (I'll add others later) in OP, they're flashable from recovery.
    Can find also some links to download ChaOS and MIUI themes.
    To do: a guide which explains how to edit and create themes for this ROM! :cool:
