I recently started doing unofficial builds of Dirty Unicorns straight from the repository.
I did this because Team DIRT, the creators of Dirty Unicorns, are only releasing builds which are considered stable.
Now, I like having the latest and greatest available so I fired up an installation of Arch Linux and began building from their source.
I then figured that other people might have the same need for the latest code as I do, so why not share the builds?
I intend on updating this thread with new builds when Team DIRT commit features which are relevant for Nexus 5.
The changelog below will contain the time at which the repo was synced and additional cherry-picks, if any, will be mentioned as well.
The important thing about my builds is that they are unofficial which means there is absolutely no support, not from me and especially not from Team DIRT themselves.
You can use this thread to discuss my builds and provide each other with help and suggestions but as my disclaimer mentions below; do not report bugs to Team DIRT.
These builds are unofficial and are not supported by Team DIRT.
I compile these builds solely for the purpose of having the latest code available from the repositories.
Because of this you might experience unstable builds and possibly data loss. Remember to backup your data accordingly before using any of these builds!
If something breaks I am not inclined to help in any way and you can not report bugs to Team DIRT!
As a general overview of features in the ROM you can have a look at the entry for the official build.
Notice the date of the official build. My unofficial builds will have all the features present in the official ROM including every commit and cherry-picks between the official and time of my repo sync.
Cherry-picks, if any, will be mentioned in the changelog.
Repository was synced at ~12:45 CET | 13/07/2014 thus all merges up until that point are included.
