Is it possible for me to jump from freedom OS 2.5 to this without messing everything up? Thanks


Sep 16, 2016
As every mirror link is down, and the files downloaded from GitHub seem too light (200Mo Vs 1.5 Go), is there any way to get FOS 2.12 and FOS 3.3 somewhere ?
Appart from that, is there any alternative which has an AppLocker, Scheduled on/off, Viper, AdAway and every basic function working (tethering...) ? I thought about The3OS for all that, provided that Havoc won't have AppLocker.

Thanks !

Thanks for response. I'm on OOS 9.0.6, it is working perfect for me but I my usage is kind of basic, few calls, text, YouTube and some social apps. I tried LOS 14.1 by Sultan (now Denser) and amazed with it's smoothness and performance. I heard lot of good about about this ROM but never tried it, actually it is not in development anymore while LOS 14.1 still has latest security patches.

Hello guys!

I have a strange problem using the latest version of FreedomOS. (It appeared using version 2.5 though)
Sometimes the phone loses the ability to play any media. Video and sound playback is not functioning in none of the apps.
Spotify shows, it's playing, the timer is ticking, but if i click pause, it goes back to start, not pauses. It works fine on PC.
Youtube says "There was a problem while playing" and giving me the Playback ID for each video.
Instangram and Facebook does not play any sort if video, but it looks like it's trying.
I also cannot make any calls either using Messenger, or the Phone Dialer itself.
Camera only works while using the stock Camera app what comes with this ROM. Any other app shows that it's already in use, and i have to close those apps.

Doesn't matter which profile i'm using, Ring, Do Not Disturb or Silent, the problem stays the same.
I thought that it will go away after installing the new version. It was fine for a day, after that it appeared again. I reinstalled it, maybe i missed some option in the Aroma Installer, but i didn't.
I downloaded the newest separate Firmware and Modem zip, flashed it, didn't help.

Sometimes rebooting the phone solves the issue, but in the 80% of tries it will not solve it.

Here's the list of installed apps:
  • 9GAG
  • AccuWeather
  • Amazon Shopping
  • Google Auth
  • BitTorrent Pro
  • Calculator
  • Google Calendar
  • CatLog
  • Camera
  • Chrome
  • Stock Clock
  • Contacts
  • Downloads
  • Google Drive
  • eBay
  • EX Kernel Manager
  • Facebook
  • Gallery
  • Gmail
  • Google Search
  • Instagram
  • Google Keep
  • Instagram Layout
  • Magisk Manager
  • Maps
  • Facebook Messenger
  • My O2
  • Netflix
  • PayPal
  • Phone
  • Google Photos
  • Play Store
  • Quik
  • Samsung Gear
  • Samsung Health
  • Settings
  • Shazam
  • SMS Backup & Restore
  • Snapseed
  • Solid Explorer
  • Spotify
  • SuperSU
  • Telekom
  • Terminal Emulator
  • Google Translate
  • TripAdvisor
  • TSB
  • Twitch
  • Voice Search
  • Google Wallpapers
  • Youtube

I downloaded CatLog to maybe figure something out by myself.
I see a few constantly repeating lines of
Android Runtime: Unable to create service se.dirac.acs.AudioControllerEliteException: se.dirac.controller.qem.ControllerEliteException: Failed to communicate with Qualcomm HAL
Then AudioDaemon shows this:
Opening sound card state: /proc/asound/card---/state
but it's failing, saying no such file or directory.
After that it sleeps for 100ms, then restarting the whole thing again.

Another interesting thing is:
AudioDaemon: No audio device events detected
AudioDaemon: Sound Card is empty!!!

Any thoughts?

In the meantime, I installed crDroid ROM, LineageOS, and the Stock OOS as well, all of them has the same problem which makes me think that this is a hardware fault and not software related.
So i guess no other way than sending my phone to service for now.

Did you find a solution?

    How to pass SafetyNet?
    - Follow the aroma installer, after that make sure to enable "Magisk Hide" in Magisk settings.

    Magisk or SuperSU
    Both are good to go, but depends of your need.
    I have made a small comparaison, of course it does not contains all the criteria (different point of views are welcomed).
    A standard, compatible with almost all "rooted apps"
    Break SafetyNet
    Can increase battery drain

    Magisk :
    Include modules support (FOS include patched module for arise)
    100% Systemless, do not break safetynet

    Young project, some apps are not compatible

    Which recovery should i use?
    Use the latest official TWRP available here.

    Want to report an issue, a problem?
    Please report it HERE, it much more handy compared to the forum.
    Provide as much information as possible, the installation logs or logcat are important.
    You can also suggest your ideas :)

    What does mean CE?
    - CE stand for Community Edition, it's based on the beta branch of OnePlus, the non-CE builds are based on stable branch, and ready for daily use.

    I'm getting an signal 11 Error at the end of the aroma installer
    You have ticked to rebvoot your device at the end of the installer, and it just fail.
    This is not a problem, just reboot it into twrp.

    How to downgrade to non-CE?
    - All you have to do is to perform a clean flash that means (wipe: data, system, dalvik, cache).

    Can i dirty flash this rom ?
    - You can dirty flash if u're using my previous version, but if anything wrong, a clean flash before reporting is a must.

    I got a bootloop caused by a incompatible/bad layer.
    Boot into TWRP.
    Go to Mount.
    Select System.
    Return to Home.
    Go to Advanced.
    Go to file manager.
    Go to /system/vendor/overlay/ and remove the bad overlay apk.

    My installation is stuck at XX%.
    - Wait one or two minutes and touch two times at the bottom right of your screen, if you got nothing reflash the rom.

    I have unselected/selected a setting in the aroma and now i (don't) want it.
    - Reflash the rom

    Tips :
    For reducing the battery usage, i recommend to disable Viper4Android for the phone speaker for everyday usage.
    The economy will minimal but we don't need an audio treatment for a simple *ding* notification.
    New update!

    Hi guys,

    Actually, it's becoming more and more difficult to find free times to work on FreedomOS.

    During these few days, i was mainly busy with my studies and also a lot of new stuff has happened in my life, so I'm currently not working on this project as I would like.
    But you may ask, did you plan to stop working on FreeedomOS?
    Of course not! And I can say some improvements are already in active development for a few weeks.

    New update available!

    Happy flashing guys :)
