Thank you, fela4.
The discord link opens a Website with an invitation. But trying to enter the site runs on an error on the Smartphone

"Alle Wörter ab "&utm_source" wurden ignoriert, da Suchanfragen auf 32 Begriffe beschränkt sind."

Noticed today: The shortcut error on my phone is solved. All setting and browser shortcuts are available after todays system update.

Hotspot's still not working.

A question. Are personal data transmitted when issueing a debug report?

Nope, logs do not include any personal data / identifers

@fela4: I tried to use AICP extra app but I could not find the option to create a logcat.
I scrolled everywhere in that app but nothing.
Is there any other way to create alogcat ?
I'm using the german settings.

You'll find it in Settings - Search bar (on the top of settings "Einstellungen durchsuchen") when you type in "Logs".
You'll get "Logs erstellen" as result.
But at least for, starting a log always force close.
Of course you can also use an app from Playstore, like CatLog or MatLog.

Good morning M8 owners,
a new release is out. A bit disappointing as all my widgets and shortcuts are gone. Again. What a bad thing considering the experience.

The hotspot issue is also still there.

All in all I see no need to install this Update.

Hello, thanks for your work on this project. Unfortunately I am having an issue with the SIM not being recognized. It says emergency only on both AICP and Lineage.

Stock ROM does recognize the SIM and is able to make calls (I have been back and forth a few times between operating systems). Could someone please provide some insight if possible?

Hi, I've been testing this ROM for some weeks and it's quite good but it has some annoying bugs:
  • When the "Screen Lock" is set to "None" and the screen turns off after the defined idle timeout, the screen turns on again itself after 4 seconds and that cycle continues forever.
  • When Wifi Hotspot Tethering is enabled, it disables itself after some seconds, failing to activate.
  • After an update the configured home screen app shortcuts & widgets disappear and revert to its default settings.
The lock screen issue generates this line in logcat that seems related to AOD for some reason:
PowerManagerService: Waking up from Dozing (uid=10256, reason=WAKE_REASON_GESTURE, details=com.android.systemui:BOUNCER_DOZING)...

I couldn't find the reason why wifi hotspot refuses to activate. The relevant logcat lines may be:
hostapd : Removing interface wlan0 failed HostapdHal: IHostapd.removeAccessPoint failed: 1, WifiNative: Failed to remove access point on Iface:{Name=wlan0,Id=2,Type=AP} hostapd : Terminating...

Here are the relevant logs: https://pastebin.com/bGeJ6sp9
Tested with the lastest aicp_m8_r-16.1-WEEKLY-20211031.zip using only open_gapps nano, no rooting or other modifications.

Hello, my SIM is not recognized but it works fine in stock ROM. Does anyone know why this may be happening or have any tips to troubleshoot? Thanks!

Has anybody had issues with connecting to a hotspot? For some reason the phone recognizes the hotspot but it will not connect.

    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 we was based on the "Ground Zero Open Source Project" (GZOSP) for Android Pie.
    For Android 10+11 we are now full AOSP-based.

    #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.


    Feature list (rough overview)


    In the beginning we would like to thank:

    GZOSP team
    LineageOS & CM (R.I.P.) team
    @maxwen and the rest of the OmniRom team
    DU team
    SlimRoms team
    Resurrection Remix team


    @LorD ClockaN
    plus the rest of the crazy bunch that we call "team"



    We are paying for servers that build nightlies/weeklies and everything that comes with it, so EVERY DONATION will really be appreciated and be used to cover those expenses.
    Thank you!!


    ROM: https://mirror.codebucket.de/claymore1297/AICP/16.1/m8/ https://mirror.codebucket.de/claymore1297/AICP/16.1/m8d/
    TWRP: https://github.com/CaptainThrowback/android_device_htc_m8/releases
    GAPPS: https://mirror.codebucket.de/claymore1297/GAPPS/open_gapps-arm-11.0-pico-20201108-UNOFFICIAL.zip

    Please note that official builds will be deleted from our servers every month due to maintenance services.
    We advise everyone to keep at least the latest or best working build on their device as a backup.
    Maybe copy it to a cloud service or USB too.



    What's working
    -mobile data
    -AICP Themes
    -mobile data signal strength

    What's not working
    - encryption

    Before using the ROM:

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

    Q. Why doesn't this ROM support Xposed?
    A. Xposed is a hack that is geared towards AOSP. Custom ROMs modify the framework a lot, so Xposed can cause a ton of issues on custom ROMs. Now it might work for you, however it is not to be discussed in this thread, and you should refrain from posting bug reports.

    Q. Alright, but I still want to flash Xposed, so which version do I need to install?
    A. Xposed is not yet released for Pie, however you can try to use edxposed .

    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, however make a nandroid backup first as there is a chance of getting a bootloop or encountering bugs. Also bugs may only be reported on a clean flash.

    Q. How do I 'dirty flash' builds?
    A. Wipe the System, Cache and ART/Dalvik cache. Flash the ROM, GApps (only needed if you wipe the system), your preferred root solution and reboot. Or just use the OTA app to preform that task for you.

    Q. How do I flash kernel builds?
    A1. If it's a .img file, boot into TWRP and go to the install page in TWRP, in the bottom right corner select "install image", select the desired kernel, then select "boot" as the destination, then swipe to flash, then go back to the install screen and install your root method again, if you don't want to loose root and reboot.
    A2. If it's a flashable ZIP, you can flash it together with a ROM update or separately. Go to the install page in TWRP, choose the kernel zip (or add it to the flash queue right after the ROM zip). Then add your root method to the queue if you don't want to loose root. Now swipe to flash and reboot afterwards.

    Using the ROM:

    Q. I installed a bad theme and now I'm getting a bootloop, how do I fix it?
    A. In TWRP, flash the substratum rescue zip that's in the substratum folder on the internal storage.

    Q. I'm having issues with WhatsApp, how do I fix it?
    A. Read this

    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. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. and 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 in the AICP Extras main page.


    The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android Pie. 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 Zipfile.

    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 ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device.
    2. Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended).
    3. Wipe the System, Cache, and Data (you might need to format the data partition!).
    4. Flash the ROM Zipfile.
    5. Flash the GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work).
    6. Reboot and set up your device, enable developer settings and in them OEM unlock/Advanced reboot/USB tethering.
    7. Reboot back into TWRP recovery.
    8. Flash the root solution of your choice (optional).
    9. Reboot your device.
    The procedure may vary from device to device and is a bit different on system updates!

    The ROM has GApps persistence in between dirty flashes, so you only have to flash them once! This might differ on AvB Devices.

    Currently supported Root Solution:

    Magisk canary

    PREREQUISITE FOR OTA ("Over-The-Air" Updates):
    TWRP recovery is needed to be able to flash using the built-in OTA app.
    Please make sure that you are on the latest TWRP recovery, keep in mind that this could also be an unofficial version!
    On encrypted devices you will have to enter your PIN/password in TWRP before the process starts.
