Sorry to hear about your problems but this specific issue had been discussed on this thread. Also if you read any other ROM thread for this phone you would realize that TWRP is a no go for 4.4 ROMS.

In any case, try using Philz touch recovery to see if your problems go away.

Just to clarify this...This is ONLY an (ongoing) issue for the L900 Note 2's TWRP. All other Note 2 devices and all other devices in general have functioning TWRP in conjunction with 4.4 ROMs.

Can I have some recovery logs please ?
From twrp preferably.

TWRP on L900 is known to be broken, and has been since November. It isn't any closer to making it work now than then, I'm not sure if BigBiff even has a Note2 anymore to test as his DD device is Note3 T-Mo....there hasn't even been an informative log gotten to the dev since November about what is causing the issue (I've been following the TWRP L900 thread).


TWRP is best described as kaput for L900 IMO. Would be nice if it changes, but I doubt it will before I sell my Note 2.

5/25 nightly

Just came back to check on this ROM, the 5/25 nightly build seems to be pretty swell. No issues that I could detect from my basic use. GPS lock, wi-fi, text msg, calls, mic, hotword detect, OmniSwitch...

Nice work!
@Daevionne the nightly builds do not have multiwindow support, if multiwindow support comes to our device for this ROM it will be from a homeade build, and it looks like the link to homemade builds has been removed from the op

I've been running this ROM for a couple of weeks now, loving it!

Today I updated to the 6/09 nightly, and afterwards noticed that my SuperSU app was missing. I still have root, and even get the dialog for root access, but I can't open the SuperSU app itself. It doesn't show up in my launcher, but if I go to the Play Store it says it is still installed.

I've flashed the SuperSU update from recovery, and also reflashed the delta package. Both to no avail. Any pointers are appreciated.

Hey Utkarsh, why did you take down the homemade builds? Did you decide to not make those anymore or is it possible the features from the homemade are going to get migrated to the nightlies?

Thanks

I'm having problems with the delta updates.

I installed the 6/12 nightly, devil kernel and pa gapps (and su/sensorfix). I'm using philz 6079 recovery. I tried the update through settings but it failed due to not having TWRP. I tried flashing the created zip in opendelta folder (also re-installed devil kernel and wiped cache/dalvik) but after, google play services crashes constantly and the play store is missing from app list.

Any idea what could have caused this and/or a solution?

Do I need to re-install gapps after update ...I thought this wasnt necessary on delta updates?

With the 6/12 nightly being 4.4.3, try flashing delta rom update and then reboot. After you've rebooted, boot back into recovery and flash the kernel.

That actually is how I did it. Play services/store were broken after just delta update (plasma kernel was overwritten). Then reinstalled plasma but no change. **brain fart in original post, I meant plasma not devil.

I reinstalled gapps after delta update, settings reset but Rom seems stable.

Since I'm stable now, I'm more curious to see if this will repeat on future deltas and if other persistent updates get changed/reverted eg sensor fix.

I'm new to this rom, loving it btw, and very new to the deltas. Is it normal that the delta update zip is so large 280MB, which is larger than the standalone rom zip. I assume it would only create a zip with the changes/delta ...which looked minimal between 6/12 and 6/13 nightly (latest at time of delta update).

Your data won't work if first boot isn't with stock kernel.
yep delta updated zips are bigger because they are uncompressed.d
If they are compressed, you'll have to download more.

Question about OpenDelta/OTA updates. Does it take into account previous update downloads that were not flashed manually?

For example. If I ... Check Now > OpenDelta creates update package. Then I delete or move that packaged zip without flashing it first.

Will future O.D. updates assume that previously download changes have been installed (cached changes) or does OpenDelta always diff currently installed vs latest available.

lss
Are there any negative side effects from not flashing (and not keeping the "update.zip") that OpenDelta creates for future OTA updates?

Hi guys,

This ROM is working flawlessly! Thank you all for your excellent work!

I am interested on installing Xposed framework on this ROM, except I am afraid of flashing the wrong thing because Xposed is so huge its got sooo many different threads and sections, etc.

Can anyone please point me to the right location where I can install Xposed without breaking this ROM?

Xposed framework itself isn't going to mess up anything. It's the modules you have be careful with. Make sure any module you install is open source and commonly used and you should generally be fine.

I have xposed on my phone with this ROM. It's working fine. You can download it herehttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2714053

Good news!
1)Closed source camera blob has been merged.
What does this mean ? This means a very stable camera + much faster.
2)Sensor fix has also been merged into builds. So you don't need to flash it.
Also, I highly recommend either formating /system (not data) & manually flashing next build when it comes out, or you may run into problems.
This will not effect any of your data. Just flash latest build, gapps, supersu.
Next build will reflect new changes :)

Thank you and the rest of the Omni team for the continued support of the l900.

This rom is incredible; both fast and stable. This is the first rom that can handle what I throw at it. Both CM and TW based roms I have tried (which is almost all of the ones available on xda) just implode after I touch them; I'm loving Omni.

...I can't comprehend why more l900 users aren't on this rom. (soley based on lack of banter around here)

Thanks for this. So we're clear though, which build date will that be? The 7/7 build?

    Hello everybody.
    Since slick_rick has sold his note 2, I'll be taking over this thread soon.
    I am trying to consolidate all t0lte variants into one.
    Please test: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=51583240
    Just test as much as you can, but only with stock kernel.
    It might make custom kernels incompatible, but I'll work it out.

    Many yet to be merged awesome features like Multiwindow are included in this build. Multiwindow not exactly like samsung. Look for info in post I linked.

    New build is uploaded. Data is working now without any issues or tweaks.
    Try it and give me a list of everything that is working and not working.

    I noticed the last 2 nightlies and md5s don't have any size, as in 0 kb. Anybody know why and when it'll be fixed?
    Nightlies will continue starting tomorrow.
