XOS is a new generation Android-based cutting-edge OS based on the Android Open Source Project and Code Aurora Forum releases.

What is XOS?
halogenOS, also known as XOS is a new Android ROM which ships with the global aim to
become a modular ROM which keeps as high as potentially possible operating
performance on your mobile device while still maintaining a sufficient feature
base of nice, small and minimal features that would not be available via any
external feature base, extension, mod or plugin.

We hope you have a truly halogenified experience!

Internals of XOS
At core, the ROM is composed mainly of components from the
Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and Code Aurora Forum (CAF),
with extremely minor set of components from LineageOS (LaOS or LN) which
have been added to source in order to allow for better cross-device compatibility.

Our LOVE to others
A huge thanks goes to those behind the AOSP and CAF, the LineageOS Project and all of its
contributors for the sources used in the development of the base ROM which we
started with inclusive of all the work and dedication their team puts in order to
keep us updated on the awesome contributions that they make.

We will be keen on ensuring that we be up to date with the code from our base sources,
with regular ROM updates hopefully coming from time to time.

Please do not ask for ETA's (else you shall be spooked by Mr Skeltal). Almost all of us are
students, and with the current lifestyles and routines we have, it is not that easy to acquire
time to develop the ROM, though we'll be sure to keep you updated and release OTAs as
soon as they are available and ready for publication. If you want to be really updated quick,
then join us on Telegram: http://telegram.me/halogenos

Although no data should be lost or damaged by the flashing process,
we advise you to follow the following steps if you are coming from another ROM:
Code:
 * Please take a full [I]Nandroid[/I] backup!
 * Please copy your back up to an external device.
 * Backing up your [I]Internal Storage[/I] is also recommended.
 * When completed, [I]clean flash[/I] the build!

Although you usually may dirty flash halogenOS over other ROMs, considering the other
ROM is built upon the same Android version, it is not guaranteed.
In case of performance issues or crashes please do a clean flash.

You can dirty flash halogenOS 7 (Nougat) over halogenOS 6 (Marshmallow)
without any problems. Although we cannot promise that it will work for you,
although we don't recommend it, we can tell you that this has been tested.

Overall as a ROM, XOS is very stable. Our mission statement has always been of maintaining a clean and properly maintained ROM.
We take proper priority with ensuring that performance and stability are put first, features are considered an extra topping on the cake.

Manually updating the ROM
XOS ships with an OTA updater built-in which should automate the downloading and flashing process,
however should your wish be to manually update the ROM, you should be our guest.
Code:
* Download the current version of XOS for your device.
* Reboot into a compatible Android Recovery solution. (Note: We recommend TWRP)

Notes

1] VoLTE works? Heck yeah yep.
2] WiFi works without bootloop wagera? Haan bhai it works.
3] Why no 7.2.x/new feature/5g support? We are sane developers that believe in keeping things slow and steady. We have college just like you. If you can help us in our academics lol, maybe we'd implement it. But we are always open to new ideas.
4] Bugs? Report them over Telegram or on the thread. Better if you Telegram. We are online 24/7.
5] Problems? We have a vast community over Telegram. You might want to ask there and get your answers asap. Links are mentioned above.
6] ROM has OTA updater and will give you a notification when a new build is come. We have a release schedule which we follow sincerely. Release builds are done only on alternate Saturdays two times a month, unless a major fix has to be implemented. If you do not get a notification, you can manually update the ROM.
7] Wanna contribute by becoming a beta tester? Know what are logs? Know to take a sysdump and what is console-ramoops? Join our group over Telegram. And pm me. I'll let you know after knowing your potential!
8] Mirror? Mirror!

awesome ROM!
anyone managed to get the Radio app to work? struggling with it. Open but says "currently not available"
wiped app data and cache,
wiped cache and dalvik but still nothing
 
Lovely Rom, nice and smooth and stable too. It did report my sandisk SD card as being corrupt though. If anyone else gets this don't automatically let it format or repair as the chances are it's not corrupt at all.

It did the same thing with mine. And attempting to repair the filesystem within recovery or by putting it in a computer to run fsck didn't work.

Is this ROM / included kernel supposed to have exFAT support?

    Huge shoutout to our beta testers for helping me in getting this tested thoroughly! Specially @tywinlannister7 who was ever ready to test out the builds when they were bootlooping initially and during wifi **** lol!

    Well here we go

    I think im a beta tester too! Nice ROM, but i cant turn off battery led and can not find an option to disable it :c
    Anyways, still testing. Good work!
