This firmware:
- Does not include root management (I suggest flashing SuperSU from recovery)
- Installs TWRP as device recovery
- 5.0.x Tested using PA Pico GApps
- 5.1 Tested using BaNkS Gapps via euroskank
or these other minimal GApps (untested)

Known issues:
- No sound during calls until toggle speaker phone
- Time zone bug

Installation notes:
- Do not use Mr.Cook's rom-wipe script; [ here's why ]
- I do NOT recommend dirty-flashing over other i777 firmwares

**Downloads**

I am not a developer, just a builder.
Credit to the Omni team, and to @asimovi, for the i9100/exynos4 source modifications, from which these builds are based.

Happy flashing,
-Cyril

It looks like there's no multi-user support. Or maybe I'm blind and I just can't find it. The other problem I found is that ES File Explorer doesn't work; it crashes and causes the phone to restart. Updating from the Play store doesn't fix it.

Otherwise, it seems to run alright. Wifi is fine, but I don't have a SIM for it.

Can you shoot videos??
Is sdcard detected?
Sdcard is fully functional. When shooting video, the stock camera freezes.

I intentionally disabled multiuser support. If that's something that you use, I can enable it.

The stock file browser, and solid Explorer both work well on this firmware. I therefore suspect that ES crashes are an app compatibility issue.

SIM card works, I'm daily driving it right now.

I appreciate the feedback.

I heard there was a bug of the wifi, and that if you power your phone off with the wifi off, it will be stuck in a boot loop.
Is this true?

And secondly, I wanted to know if I could flash another kernel, like Shift....

@coolerboyj, I just tried it. I turned off the wifi, then rebooted, and the device booted into android as expected.

I have not tried shift with Omni 5.0, but it should work well.

...I sure hope so. This is where you can all help me out. If you notice that another 5.0 firmware (for i777 or i9100) doesn't have the call bug, let me know, and I will look into what fixes they applied, and attempt to apply them to OMNI.

When trying to flash Gapps from here, I keep getting "Error Code: 70". I tried it with both Stock and Micro versions and it sayd "Error executing updater binary in zip". Does this mean it's just a bad zip? Or is there another issue I'm missing?

Can you give specifics? Just curious as to what you like best about it.
I like the refreshing nature of the interface. I'm eager to see what the big three add as customization.

This device doesn't handle the animations very well yet though. Maybe device tree refinements will improve it, maybe succeeding versions of Android, or both. Either way, only time will tell.
