FAQ

What about LineageOS?
LineageOS is still my main project and should be the default thing people flash. This thread is meant for android enthusiasts.

Help! Video recording is broken.
It isn't. It is just broken with the default camera app that ships with the rom. Install a third party camera app.

I can't toggle USB modes
Yeah, known bug. Go to the developer settings, default USB configuration. From there the toggle works.

Our device has hardware keys. Why is the option for full screen gestures there?
I left it there in case someone wants to toggle it on while using hardware keys at the same time. Unfortunately, the back gesture is broken for some reason.

DT2W is broken
It is there. But DT2W and AOD are not allowed at the same time. Pick one.

Port XYZ features to this ROM
Nah, This will remain pure AOSP.

This ROM was a one off build I did just for fun to see how pure AOSP feels like. But given that projects like treble and official LineageOS 18.1 are now available that are superior to pure AOSP in every way and given that I don't have enough HDD space to maintain two roms at once, I have decided not to continue with updating AOSP.

I'm having this thread locked and suggest everyone to switch to other projects mentioned above.
