Why Omni?
Omni is what custom ROMs used to be about – innovation, new features, transparency, community, and freedom. Our goal 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.

Omni is a chance to get involved, no matter who you are. Developers, whether you’ve been developing apps for a week, or ROM features for 3 years, you’re welcome. Users, we know you want to help out, and now you can – Omni actively encourages bug reports and feature requests, which can be added to our publicly accessible roadmap. What’s the point in giving you a ROM, and forcing you to not tell us about any bugs you find?

We also recognise how people use Custom ROMs – we’re all custom ROM users and developers ourselves – the argument that “nightlies are not for end users” is over-used, and no longer valid. We’ve found that the vast majority of users want to get nightly updates to their ROM. For that reason, nightlies aren’t a playground – nightlies are for new features that are finished. You should be able to expect the same stability and reliability from a nightly as you would from a “release” ROM, and can report any bugs that prevent this from happening.

We know not everyone wants to update their ROM daily, and you are free to update as frequently or infrequently as you like. Omni is about flexibility and giving users what they expect – and we are excited to see where the community goes with it.

Thanks

Especially xHausx for the device and common repos and for taking the time to help me get the build process running.

intervigilium for kernel and device repos, because without him most HTC devices would still have Sense :D

HTC evo is a CDMA radio, maybe the process is crashing because we have a GSM radio.

I dont want to speak for the devs (sorry for that). But if he use the repos for our phone there will be no problem i think? Please correct me if im wrong :)

I am looking into the possibility that something in one of the config files is looking for CDMA. However all the ville specific stuff is from CM but edited to use omni sources for the build instead of CM and the msm8960 and s4-common repos that I forked are for all of the HTC S4 based devices regardless of radio support and could have just as easily been forked from CM but required to much editing of the various omni dependencies so I used his stuff.

Well I'm trying anyhow after going through the various dependency files just to double check. I'm hoping it was just a bad build or something so I am pulling down the repo from scratch and hopefully will have a new build in a few hours.

Its very possible that formatting the sd card from inside the ROM would solve the problem I was unwilling to try... If I have the time maybe I will but...

I'll will try.

- Lock screen delay is more than on the CM roms?
- If you open an app, and more to another page inside the app, a red square appears around the screen. (if you unlock your phone for example)

The SDcard partition (i think mmpcblk0p36) is not mounted!

A page with the red square issue!

I will check if that's whats missing. I am not sure how to disable strict mode by default since its a setting. Lock screen delay should be the same as cm since its the same kernel.

Strict mode is not enabled so I am not sure what the red box is...I tried to format from inside the rom, that did nothing. All the mount points are correct...so I am looking at other possible causes like recovery etc.
