AICP
Android Ice Cold Project

AICP is known by everyone as the "Ice Cold Project" that started on a Desire HD years ago (2012) and since then has evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community that you can find!!!

Until Android Lollipop, the ROM has always been based on AOKP. Unfortunately, since AOKP stopped development (but made a comeback later), we changed our base to CM.
With the re-brand of CM to LineageOS (LOS), we became LineageOS based with some tweaks from AOSP and then changed to be based on the "Ground Zero Open Source Project" (GZOSP) for Android Pie.
We changed again for Android Q-R with a base of AOSP repositories and some additions from LineageOS for device-specific repositories.

If there are any bugs we will sort them out if it concerns our codebase. This ROM isn't LineageOS supported, so there is no need to report errors/bugs to them!!


Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.

Google Apps:
We recommend MindTheGapps as it has been thoroughly tested and it works well with the ROM, some other minimal GApps packages still have issues, however feel free to try other GApps if you want to, just try MindTheGapps if you have any GApps related issues

You tell... :p

FAQ:
Before using the ROM:
Q. Can I have an ETA for the next build?
A. Yes, just look here to see what day your device is built on.

Q. Does this ROM support custom kernels officially?
A. No. You can still use them, but the discussion should go in the thread of the respective kernel. We don't offer support for bugs you might encounter while using them!

Q. Does this ROM include GApps or do I have to flash them separately?
A. No, we do not include prebuilt GApps, because of possible licensing issues with Google Software and because some users do not want GApps preinstalled as they want to use alternative services like MicroG or just prefer flashing a GApps "flavor" of their liking.

Q. Does this ROM use the camera or gallery app from stock?
A. It depends on the device. In most cases these apps include proprietary libs/code and cannot be included in the device trees on Github or we risk having the ROM banned from Github. In this case, we might try to make them installable (separate from the ROM zip), or we might provide a version of these apps with the ROM that doesn't include any proprietary libs. It's also sometimes the case that these apps are simply not included because we didn't feel the need to do so for the device in question.

Q. Does this ROM have Extended/Scrolling screenshot?
A. No, extended screenshot was implemented using an app extracted and modified from manufacturer firmware/system images and is proprietary as well. It led to the closing of many ROM's sources on GitHub.

Q. Does this ROM have FaceUnlock?
A. No, FaceUnlock was also an app extracted and modified from some manufacturers. Even Google removed the Trusted Face (FaceUnlock) feature for security reasons on Android 9.0/10.x. Adding the modified feature did the same to ROM sources as described above.

Q. Can you add (insert favorite weather provider)?
A. No, we cannot add more weather providers as the implementations change and we (the ROM) now have to pay for most services, and that is not cheap, so we decided to use the best free service that we could find, the only way to add your own is for users to apply for their own API key to use their preferred service.

Q. Does this ROM have private official builds with the above proprietary libs included?
A. No, we believe in open source software, this way users know what's in the build and can replicate it themselves, all official builds are built on our build servers using the public sources from github and no one can (or would) add their own private sources to the build.

Flashing the ROM:
Q. What do I need to know before flashing?
A. Check the flashing instructions...

Q. Can the builds be dirty flashed over each other?
A. Yes, this is the usual behavior on flashing a new official build by (or using) the build-in updater service.



Using the ROM:

Q. Do I need to provide a logcat if I'm reporting a bug?
A. If you want it to be fixed faster (or at all) then yes, you should definitely provide a logcat AND the model name. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. Do not post the content here. Thanks.)

Q. How do I get a logcat, what type should I get, and more questions that can conveniently be answered by my pre-determined answer?
A1. Read this thoroughly. Also, here's a good app for getting logs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tortel.syslog (Root needed).
A2. If you are already rooted, you can use the built-in feature to make a logcat and provide that. Just look into the others section on the AICP Extras main page.


instructions.png


The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android R. You don't need to install any Add-ons, simply download the latest ROM and GApps, then follow the flashing instructions and go!
If you want the device to run the ROM "rooted", you can flash a root solution of your choice after the ROM zip file.

It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup (or with any backup/restore app) as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug, restoring regular apps is fine though.
If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.



How to flash for the first time:
(Again: Don't do it if you don't know!)

1. Download the AICP installation package that you would like to install or build the package yourself.
Optionally, download an application package add-on such as Google Apps (use the arm64 architecture).

2. If you are not in recovery, reboot into recovery:
With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Power. Then use the menu to select Recovery Mode.
Now tap Factory Reset, then Format data / factory reset and continue with the formatting process. This will remove encryption and delete all files stored in the internal storage, as well as format your cache partition (if you have one).
Return to the main menu.

3. Sideload the AICP .zip package:
On the device, select “Apply Update”, then “Apply from ADB” to begin sideload.
On the host machine, sideload the package using: adb sideload filename.zip.

4. (Optionally): If you want to install any add-ons, click Advanced, then Reboot to Recovery, then when your device reboots, click Apply Update, then Apply from ADB, then adb sideload filename.zip those packages in sequence.
NOTE: If you want the Google Apps add-on on your device, you must follow this step before booting into AICP for the first time!

Do I need to upgrade to stock A11 before flashing this? I'm on a custom A10 rom at the moment. Thanks!

My device was on 11 when i started with it, didn't test your scenario myself so i'm not quite sure..
I think it should work when coming from 10 custom ROM, but cannot confirm at this time.

Maybe someone can check this and let me know?

Finally got it done! Flashing went smooth (didn't do update to Android 11 stock, flashed straight on top of custom A10 ROM), root and setup smooth, all main features are working fine; even Revolut and google pay are fine :) Thank You!
The only problem is Google camera, it refuses to launch :-( I did try play store version, did try moded one with same result - back to home screen with no time… Should GCam work on this rom? Default camera app is working OK.

Noticed the same on my bonito. Working on it. Can you send me your logcat after a gcam crash? AICP Extras -> Log that s*#*

Been using this for a few days with Mindthegapps and everything works so far except the camera, but PX Camera does work. Wifi calling, VoLTE, bluetooth, google pay all work. Magisk passes SafetyNet. The only minor issues I've found are:
  • When I first tried to change the statusbar clock to center aligned, it disappeared. Tried again later and it worked, so not sure what happened.
  • I am running dark theme with Base Theme, QS Style, and Notifications all set to Gray. The notifications on the lock screen are still black... however if I swipe them down a few pixels, they turn gray.
Loving the extra customization this has coming from DU, going to be the new daily driver.

It would be nice to have a separate download for the boot.img so we don't have to extract it on every update, but not a big deal.

Thanks for using AICP. :)

So far I have no solution for PlayStore GCam crashes. Still investigating.. Please use PX or any other working GCam mod for now.

Statusbar clock alignment should be fixed afaik. Check with current weekly build.
Black / gray lockscreen color change i just reproduced myself. Weird.. Thx for reporting this, gonna check it out with our theming guy.

It is not required to extract boot.img from payload on every update:
- Install OTA from AICP Extras (it will install in inactive slot)
- Do not reboot after OTA installation, instead go to Magisk Manager Install section and select "install in inactive slot"
- Procedure verified with last 2 OTA updates and working fine (y)

why can't you just provide the boot.img? I would rather not install python just for this one purpose.

I flashed stock 11 and can't sideload the latest zip.

image-sargo-rq2a.210305.006

so its not even the latest. I even tried the latest. what stock image should I be using? and should there be a non-stock recovery used?
