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.

This is the only feature in OmniROM that i found useless.
Can we expect the Aokp or Slim navigation-bar customization instead ? (more features)
Tanks

I'd like to see more button-options myself, like a notification-pulldown for example.
But as I say in my original post these are unofficial builds. I am not afilliated with Team DIRT so I have no idea what they plan to include in their rom.

I build and share them, that's about it :)

    I''m getting confused between two builds

    Does Amplificator's merge his cherry's to mlaws90's build or it is a completely separate build? What I want to know, if all features are available in both builds or one has more or less than other?

    We both do our own builds independently of each other.
    We are in different time zones and all that (I'm from Denmark and mlaws90 is from USA) but lets assume just for now that we are not:

    Mlaws90 syncs the respository early in the morning and he completes his build.
    A few hours later one of the developers merges some code to their repository which you can follow here: http://gerrit.dirtyunicorns.com/#/q/status:merged,n,z
    Then in the evening I sync the repository. I therefore get the updated code and that has now made it into my build.

    Cherry-picks are code updates which might or might not have been tested and can be buggy. It is therefore not merged into the final code yet. You can follow that here and see what code is to be merged if it passes testing: http://gerrit.dirtyunicorns.com/#/q/status:open,n,z

    But even though it is not merged into the repository, mlaws90 and I can choose to put it into our own builds. That is called cherry-picking. As I said, sometimes the code is tested and working fine and other times it is not and simply doesn't work. Around the 20th or so mlaws90 had a build with "multi-user support" but that didn't actually work. The device ran fine, no crashes or anything but when you tried to switch between users it would bug out. This "multi-user support" was a cherry-pick by him which was not merged with the final code yet because it wasn't tested and approved.

    As a general rule just take the latest build. That might be my build or it might be mlaws90's build. You have to look at the date and time we write for each build. We are not posting builds that doesn't work at all.
    Where we differentiate them is usually with our cherry-picks and, of course, the time of day we sync the repository. Because I'm in a different time zone than mlaws90 the developers might have updated the code.
    So if you really want to tell the difference you have to look at our changelog. We write when we sync the repository and what cherry-picks we include, if any. You can then go to the gerrit above and check what has happened in between our builds.

    I hope that clarifies it a bit :)
