source for what? kernel is default google how is this any different than the miui threads where no source is posted and im almost positive miui modifies the kernel yet no one seems to care about those builds?

well, considering its an "original" rom since its in the original threads(not android development) i assumed it would have some kernel work done. but maybe im wrong there, if theres absolutely no kernel work, then it doesnt need source. which leads me to another question.. is this an "original" rom as it appears to be based on broodplank1337's work?

rather than attempting to be a mod, why not just use the report button and let a mod know it needs a source if you feel that way or if it isn't original development?


I am not trying to be a **** either, I am sure I came across as one but enjoy your insight and posts, as I used to pop into threads and state the same about source, but found it was much easier and more polite to just report it rather than jump into the thread.

first off, im not attempting. secondly, i legally have to ask for source first. then some time is given to provide source. then if source isnt provided. that's when i report a thread for no source. i cant report it for not having source if i never asked.

sure sounds like you were/are
source needs to be add to the xda page as well

but either way he only needs to link you to google kernel source, rom can be kept closed and if you really want him to add the link to google kernel source I am sure he will. I just find it odd you are often seen in threads asking for source just to be "that guy" but w/e


anyway source was linked to on aug 5th, if you are just stirring this up because it isn't listed in OP then that's on you but OP commented that source is found here https://github.com/Octo-Kat/

if no kernel changes were made, no source needs to be made. if no changes were made to the rom, no source needed. if any open source code has been changed, it needs source. the rom can be closed if it uses all original code, not open source.

what i cant figure out is why the big fight from you? by reading the op, i see you guys are fans of open source and the actual work. but so you know, open sorce isnt open source until you provide the source, so others can build it and on top of it. and it seems as its provided in that link, why fight about posting it on xda as well? and i do act in the "that guy" position often. its because i love the open source community.

im not an affiliate of octos so my thoughts/opinion/comments do not reflect their belifes. the only reason we "fought" as you put it is because you cried for source when its already been posted, whether they include in OP is up to them buts its available in the thread, maybe the glasses need some cleaning? I dunno but it is there

Ummm. It's not about being against anybody. Smh.

It's about spreading correct information. If somebody is wrong, correct it. It is a not attack on somebody to correct something. Or standing up to somebody.

I actually like when I do say something wrong and or stupid and somebody corrects it. It's called learning. I'd rather be corrected than to keep repeating something that isn't true.

    We maintain a current release record and change-log on our website: http://www.teamoctos.com

    -Do Not Mirror our files without talking to us. We can do that ourselves should we desire to.-

    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.

    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.
