Jaguar is available on locked bootloader with working root (Magisk)

VERSION 19 FIXES SAFETYNET PASSING (WITH MAGISK 24.3)
See detailed instructions here


You can actually use alarm when the phone is OFF. It would boot 2 minutes before and trigger the alarm on time

This is official build of Jaguar Rom.

I have been building Android roms since 2012 for various devices including multiple Sonys, Lenovo Zuk, Oneplus 3, Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 6. You can check my Oneplus 6 or
Oneplus 6T threads and browse my profile.

Jaguar rom is focused on hardening of AndroidOS and kernel. As such, the rom has hardened bionic, art, framework and tightened security.

1 Rom control with custom Power options, Statusbar, Buttons, Navbar, Quicksettings, Lockscreen, Notifications, Gestures, Themes etc...

2. Heavily modified Art, Bionic System/Vold and System/Security

3. Telephony response to Type Zero sms ('silently acknowledged') disabled

4. Toggle to disable Captive Portal logging.

5. Speakerphone proximity sensor toggle - could be set to automatically switch to speaker when not at the ear

6. IMEI and phone numbers hidden in About menu

7. Built-in encrypted DNS providers, such as: Cloudflare (US); LibreDns (Germany); AdguardDns (Cyprus); and PowerDns (Netherlands)

8. Wakelock and Alarmblocker

9. Fully working Call recording with the button visible in Dialer

10. A choice between the latest Bromite and Vanadium webview

11. Deskclock app modified to work with PowerOn alarm. The app will boot the phone 2 minutes before scheduled time to trigger the alarm on time

12. Default Dark mode

13. All regular customizations plus. You tell me which feature is missing.

14. Prebuilt Magisk 23. You don't have to flash it, just install the attached Magisk.apk.


Bugs: AOD working, but no info shown on lockscreen (works fine on other Onepluses)

Install instructions

1. Install Jaguar recovery via fastboot: reboot in fastboot and execute the following commands on your connected PC terminal:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery_a recovery.img
fastboot flash recovery_b recovery.img

2. Download the rom to your PC. Boot the phone into recovery, set recovery for sideloading, then type on your PC terminal (which should be opened in the same directory where you had downloaded the rom):
Code:
adb sideload 'name of the rom'

3. Factory reset and reboot. You are done. If you want root, just install Magisk manager (apk) as a normal app.

PICO Gapps has been tested successfully with this rom.


All downloads are in post #3.

All subsequent releases will be in post #3

The rom could be used on locked bootloader with ROOT (donate feature) with or without Gapps.

The benefits of LOCKED BOOTLOADER combined with WORKING AVB-2 protection are:


Get your DRM L1 certificate back. Most banking apps (if not all) will work with or without Magisk: you cimply get a warning 'your devices is rooted', but you can proceed to login

Security: Nobody and nothing can modify Kernel, Recovery and Virtual Partitions without triggering a red screen of death with the message 'your device is corrupted and cannot boot'.

At that point, the only option is to unlock bootloader. But, if a user had previously disabled OEM unlock in Developer settings, then unlocking becomes unavailable, and so does flashing via fastboot. In other words, if your phone gets into the hands of an adversary, their only option is to use MSM tool to make the phone work again, but no access to your data or any other partition.

Why prebuilt Magisk? Because you can't modify kernel or recovery on locked bootloader post installation, and that's exactly what Magisk does.


Also, see some screenshots attached:

"I have one app what is not possible to use it with unlocked bootloader"

I am not sure what you mean. Locked bootloader doesn't affect apps, which you are free to install or uninstall.

You don't need to be on stock. You need to flash Jaguar, boot it and then you contact me: you'll get instructions and one additional file to flash. After that, you just relock.

But on locked bootloader that will be possible to manage kernel and flash some custom Kernel?
No way! You can't touch System, Recovery, Boot and Vendor partitions without unlocking. This is why Magisk is prebuilt and requires only Magisk manager to have root. But you can flash Gapps on locked bootloader.

Can you write about gapps? What exactly is in?
If you meant Kernel manager apps, yes, you can use them on locked bootloader, as they don't modify kernel, just send commands.

Gapps. Gapps could be flashed by users like on unlocked bootloader.

The rom has the hush signature that represents the sum of Vendor/Boot and Recovery partitions. So, any change to those partitions, except when you upgrade Jaguar, would result in 'your device is corrupt and can't boot' message.

No. You CAN use kernel managers, as they don't modify kernel. They just issue commands.

But you can't flash another kernel.

yes, as you said that can be used with locked boot loader so i wanted to know if i have to unlock it, flash and relock.
OK. As it says above, it's a donate feature. You need instructions and additional file to flash, then you can relock. Contact me via PM.

Edit: And No, you don't have to be on stock to relock.

    Jaguar is available on locked bootloader with working root (Magisk)

    VERSION 19 FIXES SAFETYNET PASSING (WITH MAGISK 24.3)
    See detailed instructions here


    You can actually use alarm when the phone is OFF. It would boot 2 minutes before and trigger the alarm on time

    This is official build of Jaguar Rom.

    I have been building Android roms since 2012 for various devices including multiple Sonys, Lenovo Zuk, Oneplus 3, Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 6. You can check my Oneplus 6 or
    Oneplus 6T threads and browse my profile.

    Jaguar rom is focused on hardening of AndroidOS and kernel. As such, the rom has hardened bionic, art, framework and tightened security.

    1 Rom control with custom Power options, Statusbar, Buttons, Navbar, Quicksettings, Lockscreen, Notifications, Gestures, Themes etc...

    2. Heavily modified Art, Bionic System/Vold and System/Security

    3. Telephony response to Type Zero sms ('silently acknowledged') disabled

    4. Toggle to disable Captive Portal logging.

    5. Speakerphone proximity sensor toggle - could be set to automatically switch to speaker when not at the ear

    6. IMEI and phone numbers hidden in About menu

    7. Built-in encrypted DNS providers, such as: Cloudflare (US); LibreDns (Germany); AdguardDns (Cyprus); and PowerDns (Netherlands)

    8. Wakelock and Alarmblocker

    9. Fully working Call recording with the button visible in Dialer

    10. A choice between the latest Bromite and Vanadium webview

    11. Deskclock app modified to work with PowerOn alarm. The app will boot the phone 2 minutes before scheduled time to trigger the alarm on time

    12. Default Dark mode

    13. All regular customizations plus. You tell me which feature is missing.

    14. Prebuilt Magisk 23. You don't have to flash it, just install the attached Magisk.apk.


    Bugs: AOD working, but no info shown on lockscreen (works fine on other Onepluses)

    Install instructions

    1. Install Jaguar recovery via fastboot: reboot in fastboot and execute the following commands on your connected PC terminal:

    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery_a recovery.img
    fastboot flash recovery_b recovery.img

    2. Download the rom to your PC. Boot the phone into recovery, set recovery for sideloading, then type on your PC terminal (which should be opened in the same directory where you had downloaded the rom):
    Code:
    adb sideload 'name of the rom'

    3. Factory reset and reboot. You are done. If you want root, just install Magisk manager (apk) as a normal app.

    PICO Gapps has been tested successfully with this rom.


    All downloads are in post #3.

    All subsequent releases will be in post #3

    The rom could be used on locked bootloader with ROOT (donate feature) with or without Gapps.

    The benefits of LOCKED BOOTLOADER combined with WORKING AVB-2 protection are:


    Get your DRM L1 certificate back. Most banking apps (if not all) will work with or without Magisk: you cimply get a warning 'your devices is rooted', but you can proceed to login

    Security: Nobody and nothing can modify Kernel, Recovery and Virtual Partitions without triggering a red screen of death with the message 'your device is corrupted and cannot boot'.

    At that point, the only option is to unlock bootloader. But, if a user had previously disabled OEM unlock in Developer settings, then unlocking becomes unavailable, and so does flashing via fastboot. In other words, if your phone gets into the hands of an adversary, their only option is to use MSM tool to make the phone work again, but no access to your data or any other partition.

    Why prebuilt Magisk? Because you can't modify kernel or recovery on locked bootloader post installation, and that's exactly what Magisk does.


    Also, see some screenshots attached:

    P.S. To those who complained they couldn't find 'double tap to wake' toggle:

    Earlier, I posted a screenshot of my Oneplus 8 (not 8 Pro or T) that clearly showed the feature. Moreover, just to make sure, I did a clean flash of the latest release, and the feature appears in Settings/Display between 'Lockscreen' and 'Wake on plug'.

    So, if you still have a 'no show', that's not the rom, but addon(s) you've installed. Or, you used TWRP to restore data (TWRP is utterly incapable of restoring data without corruption) or a version of Gapps or Xposed or Magisk addons: you should know better which one... .

    Ok, mission accomplished on second device with no data loss😁. Here's what I did:
    I downloaded the latest 24.3 Magisk zip on the one plus 8. Next, I downloaded the TWRP-3.6.1_11-0-instantnoodle image and put it inside the adb folder on my windows 10 pc. Next, I rebooted the phone into fast boot mode. After plugging the phone to the pc I opened up PowerShell in the adb folder ( fastboot devices) Saw the serial number then typed the next command (fastboot boot, then dragged the image and hit enter. Once phone booted into twrp I flashed the latest magisk that I downloaded to the phone earlier. Then I rebooted system. Next I went online from the phone to grab the 24.3 apk. downloaded and installed.After installing , I opened it , went into the settings and ticked zygisk beta . I also hid the magisk app and,ticked enforce deny list. Next I went back online from the phone and found and,installed safety net universal fix version 2.2.1 via magisk. Next, I went back online to find magisk hide props 6.1.2 zip which I also installed via magisk.lastly I downloaded termux from the play store. Once I opened termux type:su then props then 1, then f, then 21,then 35, then 2,then y,then y. Reboot . Hopefully you this works for everyone. It worked for me on two one plus 8's. I used Root and SafetyNet Checker( it has a Pink Pound sign picture) from the play store to verify.
