Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why isn't there XXXXXXX feature.
A: Shoot us a Suggestion if you want to see something added. While we are not going to promise to implement, we will always look into it

Q: But CM and all the others have..
A: ROM developers, including CM, build something they want to use. The ROM dev that includes something they won't run implies less than 100% effort to ensure it does work. As a team, we have similar goals and objectives. If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don't (or don't want), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Octo-Kat

ADB Logcat tutorial here: How to create a logcat log

Bugs:
Let us know if you run into bugs. Get Syslog from the Android Market, if you don't already have it. No logs and we can only try to recreate the event off of vague descriptions. Please also include what you were doing when it FCed or failed. Logs can be emailed to: [email protected]

Basic Instructions:
  1. Download ROM .zip file
  2. Reboot to Recovery (Note: Use Three-Finger or adb reboot recovery - ROM Manager or similar software is NOT supported)
    --- TWRP is the ONLY recovery Team OctOs uses - We do not support flashing on CWM ---
  3. Flash ROM and GApps .zip files
  4. Reboot

A Note about the Team OctOs GApps
We in Team OctOs believe in choices. We believe in leaving the fundamental decisions about your phone to you.

In that spirit, Team OctOs gives you options for your GApps experiences. While any GApps package should work, we offer you the choice of using some of the same GApps packages that we use ourselves, and leave the choice up to you.

nice and fast rom so far, solid! :D

some little things I noticed:

- settings fc when 'Download Gapps' is selected
- nearby places search in dialer isn't working and when I check App ops it says Location (Never Used)

apart from that: great rom!

I believe those 2 issues are known and currently being looked at, I think the gapps download option will be removed in the near future.

The Download GApps is part of the new (yet to be working) OTA system. Yes, it'll FC for now :)

We've had reports of Forward/Reverse lookup in the dialer also not working, this appears to have started with the jump to 4.4.4 - We are looking into it. Thank you for the reports!

Thanks for the feedback & glad you guys are liking it.!

Maybe I did something wrong not sure, at first I was hesitant cause I use philz recovery, & op in red letters says only use twrp, anyway, I flashed twrp image, full wipe in twtp & flashed rom, gapps, rebooted & started to set up. I looked inside the zip before I flashed to see if theme chooser was there, it was. But once the rom booted up & I started setting up, no theme chooser. I could see it if I went to settings, apps, all. What gives? Any ideas.

    We have always operated under GPLv2, which states Source code only needs to be posted if sending out a finalized executable.

    That being said, we ALSO have always posted our license, Github link, etc under our "License" section of our website (http://www.teamoctos.com/license/) I apologize to those who want to scream, but not actually look. You can lead a horse to water, but only beat them so much.

    GPLv2 request, under section 3a,
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

    Which we have, as indicated by the license on our website. As we aren't hosting on XDA (and we are on the website), the link to the code goes there, and not here. I've updated the OP to point to our license for those who can't be bothered to actually look.

    Its also on our ProjectDB Profile folks. The fact we have pages of this means the trolls are taking over.

    OK all. I know its been a while since we chatted so let me fill you in a bit. We have been extremely busy working behind the scenes. On what you ask? Well an announcement on that will be coming . ...I know , I know I hate these kind of posts too. But in fairness its not meant to be a tease but rather just letting you know we are still alive and kicking.

    I'm pretty sure we can all get along a lot better then the last few pages..I'm also sure as we are a bunch of cool awesome guys and we all make mistakes or lack better words which can create disagreement, what matters is that in the end we are all here for the same. A good, healthy community with respect for each others work and person. Now group hug and lets all be mates. I don't like seeing a bunch of cool dudes disagreeing in harsh ways and not cool words being shared. We can do better and we will do better.

    Simms is a great guy, he also shares a lot, I'm sure his purpose was with the pure intention to make things right in order for this thread to prevail and keep existing allowing the Op to continue to share is fantastic work.
