MOVING NEXUS AND PIXEL DEVICES TO LINEAGEOS BASE
FEBRUARY 7, 2017
AARON WEIS

Oh no what have we done?!

For the past few months Team-OctOS has been maintaing two seperate Nougat code bases. An AOSP based branch for the Nexus/Pixel devices and a LineageOS based branch to support all of the other devices. This also means that team has been split working on two seperate projects. In order to get the team back to being a team we’ve made the tough decision to discontinue the AOSP branch. All current officially supported devices will still be supported using the LineageOS base OctOS.

Expect to see weekly builds for the below devices on the Oct-N Weekly (LineageOS base) download page begining Feb 10th.

Nexus 5 (hammerhead)
Nexus 5x (bullhead)
Nexus 6 (shamu)
Nexus 6p (angler)
Pixel (sailfish)
Pixel XL (marlin)

*You will need to wipe data. No dirty flashing when switching to the new base

We will be hard at work as a whole team again developing OCT-N from one common branch.​

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.

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.

Please follow the install instructions in this OP. Pixel devices are not the same as Nexus , please familiarize yourself with your device before attempting to flash anything on it.

Remember this is an Alpha build. It has been tested thoroughly but you will find some minor bugs. We will continuously be updating and making it better! Enjoy!

Got the "vendor image may be out of date" message which is an easy fix if you tell us which boot img to flash?
I think I'm on the newest U. Or I was at one point recently.

WiFi, data & calls works.
Ok Google is busted like on other AOSP ROM's but the beta is out there somewhere and supposedly works.

Thank you for the ROM!

A future feature request would be SlimRecents. :p

That's weird. I see the same post he does which doesn't mention rebooting to recovery and actually flashing the rom. I never knew the xda labs app had such a bug. I rarely use desktop so who knows what I've missed.
I'm using the original XDA app. PC shows it also. It's strange for sure that such a bug can exist. Important information can be missed!

I'm trying a few things, but I'm getting issues flashing. It seems my downloads are missing the "update-binary". I double checked the zips and can't find it on my desktop. Any ideas?

Never mind...I thought I was on TWRP RC1

    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!
