How to update AICP via OTA preserve TWRP recovery and magisk root & magisk settings and modules

Remove your PIN/pattern/password on your device.
(I have not tested with no removing password but latest twrp should manage encryption now, so if you are not removing password/PIN/pattern should be okay...However i have not tested yet. I recommend remove all password/PIN/patternbefore you are doing anything. But the choiche is yours...)

1. Make sure you have twrp installer .zip and magisk.zip on your internal storage.

2. Perform the OTA update. Once you see Reboot DO NOT reboot!! Open Magisk Manager.

3. On Magisk Manager go to modules and select Install from Storage. Select the twrp installer zip and flash it.

4. On Magisk Manager click on Install and select "Install to Inactive Slot (After OTA)" and select the magisk.zip and flash it.

5. Reboot your device. Once you have succesfully booted into the updated AICP reboot again into recovery. You should get TWRP recovery again, it means installer .zip has been succesfully applied. Now you can flash gapps and addons and whatever you want.

6. Reboot into system. Set it back your password/PIN/pattern.

7. Reboot AGAIN!!

8. Done

Just thought I'd throw my hat in the ring since I'm giving this rom a whirl.

I also had the same issues flashing via ADB, the Error 7. I didn't feel like flashing 7 or 8 img's extracted out of the payload so I just switched over to running it through TWRP, which worked perfectly.

This was coming from another custom rom, Carbon, and yes I ran the factory reset through the provided recovery image first. Then rebooted back to recovery before attempting the flash, so it was clean.

I also used the partition copy script provided by Lineage after flashing the ROM and gapps, just because I like to be thorough.

Aside from the issue flashing via ADB, the rom has been very stable and fast. Battery seems good so far as well. I appreciate the massive amount of customization available.

I haven't had a chance to try Android Auto yet, i saw some people mention issues. I'll report back hopefully later today on that.

No issues with Android Auto, plays through my speakers without issue first try. I use "Musicolet" for tunes and "Pocket Casts" for podcasts. I have Pandora and LivexLive as well but didn't test those two.

I will note that if you look at the phone, the media notification does say "Phone Speaker" but as far as I know thats normal when using wired AA, the OS is suppose to detect the cable and re-route audio.

My rig is a 2019 Chevy Traverse for head unit reference.

If I can provide any more info please let me know.

Thanks you @semdoc I'm super happy with the Rom so far!

Looking for some information on an issue with what I assume is a LOCK timeout setting in this ROM, NOT screen timeout.

So normally with all other ROM I've tried as well as stock, When you've got a PIN set, and Fingerprints registered, every so often (maybe once a day, or every other day) the phone will require the PIN to unlock instead of using your fingerprints. The same happens upon reboot, you have to enter you pin, no big deal.

This also has continued to function normally when using my smart watch as a "trusted device", which keeps the phone unlocked for about 4 hours before once again asking for my fingerprint, and then after a day or so the PIN again.

However with AICP after I added my smart watch as a trusted device the phone NEVER asks for my fingerprint any longer. After 4 hours it will ALWAYS ask for the pin, as if the fingerprints registered don't exist.

I've messed with the "Power button instantly locks" setting under Security but that didn't seem to make a difference. I've looked over the AICP Extras as well but nothing appeared to deal with this issue.

I've done some research and I believe this might be a build.prop option i can modify, but i'm not sure. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Just installed, very smooth rom.
Only one problem i faced is that green tint after playing hdr video.
Face unlock is also not present.
But other than that I never used such a smooth rom on my phone.
Thanks for such a beautiful rom.

I face issue with WhatsApp camera its weird have to tilt my phone a bit to get my selfie properly no idea also I need to know if we can change grid size in app drawer.
Thank you so much would really appreciate for any information or help.
I have no info on WhatsApp as I don't use it myself, sorry.

As far as the grid size for the app drawer though, you cannot change that. You can modify the home screen grid, (Hold on the home screen > select "Styles & Wallpapers" > Then there will be a "Grid" option, bottom middle), but not the App Drawer.

The devs recommend using another launcher if you need/want to modify the App Drawer grid.

Thanks a ton for responding really appreciate the concern. One more issue I came across that is camera app 48 mega pixel not working also macro lense not working shuts down the camera app, any fix for that?

He's right, when i attempt to switch to 48MP on the included cam app it crashes the app. I'm running the latest build from Dec 28th.

I also don't use that cam though, I personally use a variation of gCAM. I don't actually see an option to flip to 48MP in that app though for testing.

unfortunately I'm not in a spot I can provide logs atm either.

The Discord server for AIPC is fairly active @houstontaxi, and has a bug report channel. Maybe post in there as well for a faster response.

Been trying other ROMs for the last couple months. Here I am again with AICP. Nothing comes close for the 8T.

Thank you again for this VERY well-developed ROM. Stable, feature-packed, fast, stable and also stable.

Thank you!

    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!!

    #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:

    LineageOS & CM (R.I.P.) team
    @maxwen and the rest of the OmniRom team
    Pixel Experience Team
    AOSiP team


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


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


    Latest Stable Release Version 16.1

    Download link: https://dwnld.aicp-rom.com/

    Please note that official builds will be deleted from our servers every month due to maintenance services.
    Starting with AICP 15 we will be storing a copy of the most recent release here: https://media.aicp-rom.com/vault/.


    Full Changelog link: https://dwnld.aicp-rom.com/
    (Just click the changelog button next to the download link in the list of builds available for your device)

    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

    MindTheGapps: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=322935
    Mirror: http://downloads.codefi.re/jdcteam/javelinanddart/gapps


    You tell... :p

    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.

    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 perform 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 lose 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 lose root. Now swipe to flash and reboot afterward.

    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.


    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!)​

    On Clean Flash: mandatory for first install !!!

    At the beginning, if you are on Stock OOS 11 ROM with locked bootloader, please follow the instructions for unlocking bootloader here: https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/kebab/install

    1. Download the ROM and GApps to your PC with proper adb & fastboot setup.
    Also download to your PC kebab-recovery.img from HERE
    2. Boot to bootloader and run in cmd (windows) / terminal (linux)
    fastboot flash recovery kebab-recovery.img
    4. Boot to recovery. Tap on Factory Reset (this will erase everything on your device) then return to main menu
    3. Connect your device to your PC and tap on Apply Update -> Apply from ADB and
    4. Flash the ROM zip file using
    adb sideload aicp_kebab_r-16.1-WEEKLY-{date}.zip
    5. Once its finished, reboot to recovery to flash the GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work). This is mandatory becoz will switch automatically current slot and will flash GAPPS.
    Once it boots to recovery, tap on Apply Update -> Apply from ADB then run
    adb sideload GAPPS.zip
    6. Reboot and set up your device.
    7. Reboot back into recovery.
    8. Flash the root solution of your choice (optional).
    9. Reboot your device.

    The main workflow for flashing via recovery:

    reboot to recovery -> adb sideload ROM.zip -> reboot recovery -> adb sideload GAPPS.zip -> reboot to system

    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 stable
    Magisk versions >= 21.4 don't usually need to be flashed on every dirty flash.
    Depending on the device, you may need to flash it every time, unless your maintainer says otherwise, you should be fine.

    PREREQUISITE FOR OTA ("Over-The-Air" Updates):

    Go to Aicp Extras -> Update Centre then install new Weekly Build.
