Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this Android 7 (Nougat)?
A: Yes, this is Android 7.1.2

Q: What code is Oct-N based on?
A: This version of Oct-N is based on LineageOS 14.1

Q: Why isn't there XYZ 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 all the others have..
A: ROM developers, build something they want to use. The ROM developer 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 include (or don't want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-N.

Q: What about root?
A: Root is removed by default (user will be able to flash which ever root zip they want)

Bugs:
Bugs happen. Our testers are very good at breaking things, but no where near as good as the rest of the Android public. In order to investigate and fix issues, we need the help of the users who are going to report them. The Android OS has many nifty features to help us in this, but only if we can engage the user to assist us.

Logs, Logcat, and the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB)
Like any other OS, Android has multiple log files that are generated and record the goings-on of the system. As a user, you have two basic ways to view and pull these to send to us. Without the information in the logfiles, there simply is not a whole lot of information to go on.

Log file APKs
Team OctOs recommends SysLog from the Android Market. This application will allow you to selectively pick any (or all) of the system logs, compress them into a .ZIP file, and allow you to save, email, move to your Copy/DropBox/Cloud Storage account, etc.

ADB Logcat
The Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) is a powerful tool available from Google as part of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Used for many things, being able to selectively see, in real-time, what your device is doing cannot be downplayed. While there is more setup involved, if you are doing consistent ROM flashing, you really should invest the time to get setup properly to do it.

ADB Logcat tutorial here: How to create a logcat log


Basic Instructions:
  1. Download ROM .zip file and MD5 file, and grab your favorite Open Gapps package http://opengapps.org
  2. Reboot to Recovery (Note: Use Reboot to Recovery from Power Menu, Hardware-based boot to recovery, 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 ---
    The Oct-N ROM installation script will automatically wipe /system, /cache, and /dalvik-cache. There is no need to do these before or after flashing the ROM unless you are instructed to by your Gapps Provider. When dirty flashing weekly updates, you MUST reflash Gapps along with any other files, apps, custom mods or kernels etc.. (anything that resides in system partition)
  3. Flash ROM, GApps and any additional .ZIP files
  4. Reboot

The foundation of the Android OS is the fact that is it open-source. We have all code we use internally in the creation of Oct-N available on our GitHub repositories.

Unless otherwise specified, all Oct-N builds kernel souce can be found on github at Team-OctOS.

It probably largely works with all roms, but I still gotto ask. Project Fi working?

Edit: Since I'm the exact opposite of patient, I went ahead and flashed the rom. Carrier Provisioning Service has stopped during Fi activation. This was a problem about a month ago on Cyanogenmod, and it had something to do with the way SprintDM was odexed (or something). SprintDM is a 32 bit app. If it is Odexed as a 64 bit app, it will cease to function. *I fixed this below*

Edit2: I got Fi switching to Sprint working by deleting DMService.apk and the oat folder in the system/priv-app/DMService folder and then replacing it with this one: https://github.com/TheMuppets/propr...ary/priv-app/DMService/DMService.apk?raw=true

Setting permissions to:
Owner: RW
Group: R
Other: R

And both file permissions set to "ROOT"

Edit3: Only feature requests I have is changing the battery icon to dotted circle/percentage and being able to add the triple dot to my nav bar.

I'm on pure nexus MM right now. I know I need to update my bootloader, radio and vendor but which build number is this rom based off of? Is it the latest NRD90S? I'd love to try this rom out, just need to know which images to flash. Thanks a lot.

    Ok so most of you are probably wondering what's going on? Are these guys dead? The answer is definitely not. In fact, we are in the process of building OctOS from the ground up. Has anyone here heard of Pac-Rom? I bet most of you have. Well we are pleased to announce that the core dev team of PAC has joined OctOS !! Together we intend on building a great, new exciting ROM for you based on AOSP-CAF source. As mentioned, we are starting from scratch. We have new githubs that I will link so you can follow along with our progress. We are very excited about this change! More to come!

    OK so after some back and forth and some fine tuning we seem to have stable builds of our 7.1.0 branch. This next weekly will be from that branch.
