Thank you for this.
I think I have to ask. Does the Sony camera as Timeshift video works?
Do I need unlocked bootloader for it?
I'm really looking forward to come back to CM

Sony camera and Timeshift video won't work on this ROM or any other AOSP-Based ROM,
Yes you must have an unlocked bootloader to install it.

I hope you like it :)

Omar.

Flashing this update once I am home again! ;)

Though..

Is there any focus improvements done at the camera level? My Z1 refuses to auto focus with accurate results, that is when usinh the shutter button.. Any workaround to this small issue?

No Heads up and No Themes also no keyboard cursor Control keys on Navbar :( also the Camera App is 8 MP only but changed it by flashing the camera App zip on DU thread.

But ROM is super smooth

There's still no official ROM from the Omni repositories for Z1, so I'm thinking about going back to CyanogenMod.
Sure, they're a corporation now and - most importantly (honestly!) - their boot animation sucks when compared to the lovely Omni Android with its funny wiggling ears

But, nevertheless, their ROM is far more stable and therefore reliable. Yes, Omar is doing a great job and the current version isn't that bad. But Sony released a Z2, a Z3 and in just a few months Z4 will see its public release. Still, neither Omar nor Omni are able to officially support the Z1, let alone its successors. This is such a pity and makes me really sad, because I'm not able to improve the situation. :(

well it's not about omni or me being able to officially support the device,
the only thing needed is a willing maintainer (and I'm maintaining more than enough devices for a lot of ROMs ATM, so...)




i heard about building 5.0 omni builds. Will be here any possibility to cook it for our brave Honami?

It's possible that for sure, but will someone do it or not, that's the question!
As for me, I'm gonna maintain (ether officially or unofficially) fewer LP ROMs,
so I don't think I'll do omni :p

Regards,
Omar.

No offense here. Sorry, if it sounded like that to you. I'm just sad about the state of Omni for Honami. I wish someone would step in as a maintainer.
But maybe there are not enough Honami owners around here, especially with Z2/3/4 just next to it.. :(

Though, could you provide a new build based on the latest upstream sources? I'm still facing several issues that I hope got resolved in the latest build(s)..

That means not even upstream builds based on Lollipop? :(

Non taken bro, maybe I wrote my post in a wrong way, sorry bout that;


well there aren't any changes in KK repos, so a newer build wouldn't make any difference for you :p
and a Lollipop one!! will think about it, but can't promise you anything;)

Regards,
Omar.

No hard feelings, everything's fine. :)

Then the last build introduced some (more) bugs:
- DSP-Manager crashes on each track skipping within a music player (tested with Apollo and Play Music; VLC works, though)
- Bluetooth sometimes "hangs" (doesn't connect to my Parrot Minikit Neo)
- GUI (launcher?) sometimes crashes
- Speaker loudness (not the ear one, I mean the one at the bottom, behind the grid) is way too low; almost just about half the loudness the stock ROM offers

and a Lollipop one!! will think about it, but can't promise you anything;)
Well, that would be awesome, of course.. ;)

Kind regards,
Martin

There is a major bug in November Omni release: no sip clients work. You can install several apps such as Linphone or Csipsimple, login into your account, but as soon as you dial a number, the app exits and all logcat is saying: this feature is not implemented. Linphone exits and Csipsimple just doesn't do anything. Apparently, some libs or codecs are missing. Pity, as otherwise this is the best custom kitkat for Honami.

Was thinking about starting a 5.0.2 Omni ROM, but I don't really have a much experience with making ROMs, and I guess it might be a good idea to wait until FXP or CM have stable builds. Don't know if you're interested in that. I do have one of your ROMs on my Xperia ION though.

Sorry. No lollipop for me. This version is what its name implies: a shugar candy for spoiled kids, who have no concept of security. I don't blame the kids, after all, you can't demand security from them.

Google has done it again: while providing a few colorful touches for user interface (more bright color candy wraps), it managed to integrate spying malware so deep into kernel and api, that removing this garbage makes the device non functional. No surprise here. Google, which was created by three letter agencies in a Mussolini type merger of state and commercial interests, is doing the job it was designed for pretty good. From the commercial point of view, this is their model:

Producer - Manufacturer and Google
User: - Carrier, Advertisers and Government
Product/Target - You

Android stopped being an operating system at JB 4.1.2. It is a pitty 4.1.2 can't be ported to our device.

So, sorry again, I am not going to participate in this sharade.

oh yeah, Google integrate spying malware so deep into kernel!!
kernels are device specific, Google doesn't touch them at all (except for nexuses and GPE devices), and we are using the same kernel for kitkat on lollipop so that's just not true.
and lollipop is for kids but jelly been isn't, I don't get it, all android releases were named after a sweet candy, so....

as far as I've seen, there is no benefit from reply to such posts, but I thought I should do it xD
but not doing again.

Regards,
Omar.

There are many great developers working on android, you included. But virtually none has any concept of security. For starters, get a network monitor and see IP addresses your kernel and other system apps connect to. You might be surprised.

Yeah, I am not going to continue this discussion either...
