About Omni

"Omni is a community-based project for the Android community which is Free^3: Free to Use, Free to Modify, Free to Share. The goal of Omni is to experiment with Android development because we enjoy it. Omni isn’t better, just different. It’s another option for the billion Android users out there. Android (vs. iOS and every other mobile OS) has thrived on options as well as the gigantic, talented development community that has emerged to build those options. That’s the beauty of Android – that you can pick and choose from a smorgasbord of devices with varying features and functionality."

Additional Infos

Substratum themes support
Starting with build omni-7.1.1-20170311-athene, support for Substratum (OMS rootless) has been added.
To use themes, you have to:
  1. Download the official substratum app from Google Playstore
  2. Download themes (e.g. Magpie)
  3. Apply overlays in substratum app
-> To recover from a bogus theme, delete the contents of the .substratum folder

For anyone trying to use this ROM on a Moto G4 Plus (with FPS)

You need to add this line to build.prop for FPS to work:

ro.hw.fps=true

Thanks to @golden-guy for the fix.

BTW, if possible please add this to the next build so that's one less thing to worry about :) or consider adding to OP till next build.

I love this ROM for it's simple design and great battery life! Thank you man!

Thanks for confirming, I was about to ask anyway. :)

Great, in the init script it states that fingerprint service will only start if that prop has been set. Apparently there is a mechanism that does this on Lineage. Will check that. If not, I will think of another approach. Sure enough, this should only get started on the Plus variant.

@1chrome: Could you send me the output of "getprop ro.product.model" on your Plus device?

I'd need that info for creating a helper service to start the fingerprint service on boot for Plus devices .

Crap dude I am so so sorry I'm not on Omni anymore. I ran into camera issues but had to use it for an occasion next day. So I'm back on Lineage OS OMS.

    I think you all will understand. :)
