AOSP-Shamu

Information

This is a pure AOSP ROM with no tweaks, extra features or messing around - just fixes for game breaking issues.

This is for purists who just want a totally stock AOSP experience.


Features
  • Android 5.1.1_r5 - LYZ28E
  • Pure AOSP
  • Odex'd and ART optimised
  • OTA Updates (handled by RomHut)
  • Layers v2.1
  • USB OTG enabled
  • Google update service blocked (no wakelock)

Download

Android Lollipop 5.1.1

Download AOSP-Shamu 20150714
39b383630dec4dcb6270003adb1aa209

Github: here

Note:
SuperSU is not included by default. I toyed with this idea, and figured it best to leave that up to you to root if you so wish. Many of the intended features of this ROM will work ok without root.


Installation instructions

TWRP 2.8.7.1 or greater is preferred. CWM should be considered "abandoned" these days
  1. Copy the ROM files to your device (I prefer to keep a folder especially for anything ROM related)
  2. Choose "install" in TWRP
  3. Locate this ROM
  4. (Optional) Queue up some other files like SuperSU
  5. Flash

What's the recommendation gapps?

Personally I've always used and never had issues with Banks gapps.

All GApps are the same GApps you will find on APK Mirror. I've included OpenGapps in the Addons section for the ROM just because they offer an AROMA installer, and update nightly via scripts on GitHub.

Also, I didn't add Layers RRO (BitSyko, really) because that takes it away from Pure AOSP... However, if there is a demand for that I will add it as it's not too far away from stock.

Quick question before I flash. Is the ROM/kernel that comes with the ROM unencrypted? I am currently running decrypted on factory image so just wanted to make sure before I flash so it doesn't cause any conflicts. Peace and thanks again for all your hard work. :good:

  • Added USB OTG support
  • Disabled Google update service from running (as it is not necessary)
  • Now using the user build variant. Odex'd and framework compressed into boot.oat
  • Fixed WiFi display and screen mirroring
  • Added Layers RRO v2.1
  • Updated Dialer icon to proper Lollipop icon

Decided to add Layers for you guys. Found some fixes for various things in the CM device repository, including Wi-Fi display/screen mirroring. Will start looking for adding HDR to the camera, if currently possible.

Awesome, guess it's good I didn't get a chance to flash yet. Can skip the first build and move to this :thumbup:

Warning, though, this is new a "user" build, so it comes force encrypted :D I've provided a non-encrypted kernel in the addons section for the ROM on RomHut (though it's untested, it should work). Should be ok if you flash the ROM, then the kernel, before booting.

Matt you're an animal! Do you sleep?? Awesome work my friend! Now to flash...

I've been known to sleep from time to time!

Awesome, good to know thanks, I'll give it a go or lean / hells. Those are the kernels I use most of the time anyway. Thanks again.

Edit: The kernel that doesn't force encryption in the add ons section did work. ROM booted unecrypted. Just though I'd follow up to let you know. Peace.
