Not all features are available yet.


Features:

Welcome to VanirAOSP. Our mission is to deliver a clean optimized version of Android with subtly improved versions of the features you love to as many devices as possible. we've tried to incorporate and improve our features in a way that makes them more cohesive to improve the overall user experience while correcting any performance regressions and improving functionality..

What to expect:
- This is not a McCopy ROM. What goes into our build is well thought-out and not a bunch of stuff duck taped together because we could.
- maximum optimization. We do our research. We test hard. We build -fstrict -O3 globally and include a massive array of code optimizations and memory leak fixes that we write ourselves and eventually submit to AOSP or Linaro.
- originality in our source. We generate a lot of new commits being features or general code improvements. We are open source to share and improve the community but we also try to make sure we offer a unique experience.
- aesthetics.. hopefully in your opinion :p

General features:
stock mode - ability revert to stock AOSP code with the exception of a few custom features we chose to keep active
enhanced performance.. longer uptime with less slowdown
custom written CRON and init.d.
UI and graphics improvements
custom navbar, navring, and hardware key features
improved notification handling (active display & halo are in review also)
usability improvements like power reboot menu and sound
animation control
Improved Vanir keyboard
CM's profiles & quicksettings
additional quicksetting tiles
immersive mode
statusbar mods
clock & battery mods
lockscreen blur and other mods
soon to come -> quick cam and flash notifications
busybox, embedded root, init.d, cron etc
yatta yatta yatta
more to come when i feel like updating the op

It's been tested and so far no issues I would like feedback but seems no one can give up nvidia features. I guess I will have to start porting their apps soon.

I'm interested in putting this on but I'd be missing some of the stock features suck as the direct stylus app, the power optimization features, and the controller app for starters.

Not bad ROM, however after installing this ROM the tablet is only a 'Shield" device by name. Play Store recognize it as "NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet", however all Shield exclusive apps (Shield Hub, Half Life 2, Portal, etc) are marked as not compatyble.

This score is from antutu 5.0 not 4.0

Yes it was the newest one. I just grabbed it because some people are interested. It looks close to stock anyway.

Yeah that is one thing that may require the build.prop to be modified. I'll play with it today and see what needs to be done, I was playing with getting stock apps working. I have shield hub working and I can stream.
I did a quick search and found this app , market-helper/. It let me download HL2.

Confusing I thought that's what it needed it to say? I matched build.prop to stock ROM I'll check again. I checked model etc is exactly the same

I looked and it does look like you matched the stock build prop so I have no idea. That app does make it work though so I'm not sure

Currently no , we do plan on porting those in the future as we know that's something most people want. I plan to include them in a separate installation I don't think it should be a default installation for everyone.

i'd say, for me, 100% yes

i'd love for the shield tablet to operate as intended, and also be customizable through roms.

would it be enough to do a titanium backup of these apks (directstylus launcher, shield console mode, shield wireless controller, shield hub) and just restore them through?

Nope. Some apps might work but there are required lib files and things that will not be backed up in the process. I've been trying but haven't had a ton of time yet. I'll work with it some more this weekend.

So far this os is better for gaming, than the original, since games are more smooth running under this os. Too bad Shield apps are missing...

    I'm working on porting vanir L5 with all NVIDIA binaries included. Any interest in a 5.0.2 ROM?
    5
    Will we be looking forward to a 5.0 ROM in the near future?

    Most of us are from different teams in a joint effort to get a stable device tree, so hopefully it'll be a bunch of new lollipop roms.

    I think all of us have booting roms, just not very stable. Just a matter of time to iron out the kinks.

    I can't do this alone.

    Fear not, as I have seen many developers on XDA start out just the same....TommyTarts' Quantum Kernel for the AT&T GS3, KT747 Kernel by Ktoonsez, all began with experimentation and the learning followed...

    So I need some other people who know their way around git, know their way around linux and have the time to spend with me looking for solutions. I'm right now fully synced with CM and the Shield source, now I'm working on merging the 2.
