I like a simple OP so ...

Just like the title says this IS and WILL be a CLEAN AOSP rom built from source, I really just build for myself but I don't mind sharing with the community.

You ask why share a basic AOSP rom?, well there are some people here that like a AOSP rom but don't have the time or the resources to build, also at one point I felt that Android in its infancy needed a lot of customization, but now its a lot better, plus with the invention of Xposed there's not enough reason to code in features when you can just download them.

This does not come with Google Apps installed you will have to install the ones you desire just make sure they're compatible with Android 6.0, and also this rom is not rooted so you will need a compatible root solution if you need root.

There is no screen shots since the is a non-themed AOSP rom, which will look like any other AOSP rom so please do not ask, and please be friendly to one another, and also please report anything broken I will try to fix it as I can.

6.0 has RRO compatibility built into the source. All that is needed is Root and BusyBox. Running Layers as we speak on a factory ROM.
The layers now available are for previous versions.
But there is enough working to create a dark interface. The trick is to use layer combinations.
Suggestion for dark: InversionUi, CommuteUi, Scarlett, Blackish
Start with layers for 'framework', 'systemui', 'settings' and 'velvet' only.
Existing layers(not updated) for keyboard, contacts, calendar etc, will not work or text is not readable.
In the play store is a layer manager available. I prefer to extract them manually and transfer the layer-apk's manually to /system/vendor/overlay. After a reboot the layers are active and copied to vendor/overlay.

Many have been updated for 6.0.

Right now I am using Evolve and it's partner CommuteUI. Applied through the Layers Manager app (working on 6.0) and the themes stick on reboot.

I understand if you want to bake this in to a ROM, but I'm just passing along the info that Layers works out of the box with stock factory images of 6.0 with root and busybox installed. No need to rely on AOSP or Custom Roms for Layers now. (My point basically and to answer the initial question I quoted)

There are still things not touched, like Google contacts. But I keep watching[emoji1]

No I just suggested a different approach. A layer manager is not needed. There are a lot of nice layers on 'afh'. I download/extract on the PC (add .zip at the name) and delete the layer-apk's I don't use. Transfer to 'system/vendor/overlay' and reboot is enough. So I use root explorer, but layer manager is also good.
The main point is that the device involved needs Root acces. And when you have Root there are alternative. Just sharing it with the community.

Touche.

I don't use Contacts. Just unhid it from Nova and checked. You're right.

Man, I'm spoiled with touch-less interface haha. I RARELY if ever use the phone/contacts app. I just say who I want to call or speak the number. Works better with Tasker cooked in w/ Autovoice.

I also figured you were just listing another way of doing it. It's good to have multiple ways.

Just a heads up to whoever is using this, there is going to be another release shortly that is much "cleaner" it won't have any of the debugging tools added nor will it have anything that can be found in the PlayStore. This next release is pretty much just barebones and you will need to get a internet browser, camera, gallery app, music app, well you will see whats not there. At any rate I feel that this gives the user more freedom on what they want installed, so this is the new format for this rom and it is complete, the only thing that will happen now is updates to make it better. Also I will be releasing my source for this too if anybody wants to rebuild and add their own spin on it or contribute to the pre-existing rom.

I don't think there is an AOSP messaging app available.

Yeah it is you can just pull it from your phone or extract it out of the update zip.

However its just the same as the Google Messenger app just green instead of blue and doesn't have the extra Google added crap.
