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."

Since there are no official Android 9.0 builds provided by the OmniROM project anymore, I have continued to provide homemade builds with all ASB security patches applied.

Big THANKS also goes to the testers' support of the Athene Revivers tg group. Their effort and valueable feedback helped alot to iron out all G4 Plus related issues!

Just to mention: This is a 32 bit (arm) build, to stay close to official OEM release.

Last, but not least: Enjoy OmniROM!

Is this Arm version like test build? Will there be an Arm64 version (as I saw this was partially based on Lyuu's work)? Anyways thanks for official builds!

All developers pick some commits(changes) to make rom stable. This doesn't mean it is based on that one. Btw, this rom is fresh bringup by @golden-guy

I'm sorry if this was in any way offensive. I know about cherry-picking some commits. I wondered if he had given her credit, so the ROM might've been Arm64. I now know it was not the case. I just wanna know if there'd be any Arm64 ROM.

No. It's not offensive. I just need to tell that this rom is brought up by golden-guy from scratch.

hello,

have come to this ROM from Arrow.

This seems to work well - and importantly, works well with oneplus camera apk ( 32 bit ) to produce pics WITHOUT green pictures!

Only problem is I am having difficulty installing some apps from play store.
Yahoo Maill produces an error after install.
SO does Gmail - even if installed via Gapps.
Works fine on 64 bit Pie?
I am sorry if that is vague - maybe I am missing something easy about 32/64 builds?
I installied 32 bit Pico Gapps, and I have a moto g4 XT1622.
THis is the only Pie on which I can get a reliable camera.

Many thanks for all your work

Strange. Something simple as an email app should work just fine. Can you provide some logs, with Matlog? Restart phone, try either app, and then take logs.

Hello.
Some points I noticed on the 20181202 build:

  • On WhatsApp: if you try turning the flashlight on to record a video, the camera closes. If you try to take a picture, the same occurs.
    [*]Both stock camera and Open Camera takes sometime to activate the camera. Clean Flash fixed the problem.
  • Google Lens can't access camera.
  • TurboPower is working flawless, if possible, please add this on the OP.
I'll wait until next build and re-check if problems were fixed. If not, I'll send some logs (can't do this now).

    Please note that VOLTE support is not available yet. This will be added to Omni code base in the near future. Stay tuned!
    VoLTE is working since 20181209 build.

    I will add a burn-in protect option to Gestures app for tonight's weekly. Maybe not the best place, but will do for now. A single feature does not justify a separate device settings app.

    No more official Pie builds, so I made a homemade with all (up to Feb 2020) ASB patches:

    Clean flash needed!
