Very not okay with ROMs including GAPPS. Lots of people don't want to use GAPPS, and baking them in makes your ROM useless for those folks.

You sound like a child that's upset because mom didn't cut the crust off his bread for him. Kuran is a really cool guy but he's not your Mommy and you shouldn't talk to him like he is. Rom Builders and developers do this s**t because they love it, not for money. They don't owe user's anything.

BTW all official builds of aicp_mata are Gappless.

There is a reason that LineageOS and other ROMs do not include GAPPS. Google apps are the proprietary Google-branded applications that come pre-installed with most Android devices, such as the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, etc. Due to licensing restrictions, these apps cannot come pre-installed with LineageOS (and any other ROM) and must be installed separately.

So regardless of if you think I'm being 'Childish', and your arguments for 'You don't have to use it', by bundling GAPPS in their ROMs, the authors are violating licensing anyhow. Fortunately Google isn't going to go after some dude on XDA for this, but really, that doesn't make it right or proper to do.

Well in this case the dev is in no violation as gapps are not included. Most Official ROMs that I've used Do Not include gapps.

Also...

Since you're so goddamn smart...

That is only an issue for devices that DO NOT ship with the googlie apps out of the box ..

As soon as you show me where ANYONE bought this device without Google... I'll eat my hat...

From the Instructions of the first page of this thread:



'Boot TWRP

FORMAT data partition

Sideload the rom in TWRP, the gapps are included in the rom zip'



So yeah.
It's 8.1 we are on 9 now. Check the size of download. 500mb almost 600. Last updated 2018. I know it's a little misleading but it's also outdated

How to keep MicroG Installation after Update?

I flashed the latest ota-update (aicp_mata_p-14.0-WEEKLY-20200121) with the update tool. The update itself seems to work o.k., but why does this rom remove microg with every update?
Should I instead of using the ota-tool dirtyflash the update with twrp to keep microg installed? Just tested, doesn't work neither.

So, how do I have to update, to keep microg installed?

PS: I also noticed aosp-keyboard shows swipe-typing on aicp-rom, but I never get it to work. back on latest aosip-rom it works as it should after installing swipelibs. But that's something completely different.

    AICP
    Android Ice Cold Project

    AICP is known by everyone as the "Ice Cold Project" that started on a Desire HD years ago (2012) and since then has evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community that you can find!!!

    Until Lollipop, the Rom has always been based on AOKP. Unfortunately, since AOKP stopped development (but made a comeback later), we changed our base to CM.
    With the re-brand of CM to LineageOS (LAOS) we are now LAOS based with some tweaks from AOSP.

    If there are any bugs, either we will sort them out or the LAOS team will if it concerns their code base. This rom isn't LAOS supported, so no need to report errors/bugs to them!!


    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.
     *

    issues.png


    You tell... :p

    FAQ:
    Before using the ROM:
    Q. Can I have an ETA for the next build?
    A. Yes, just look in the OP to see if your device is built on a nightly or weekly schedule.

    Q. Does this ROM support custom kernels?
    A. No. You can still use them, but discussion should go in the thread of the respective kernel. We don't offer support for bugs you might encounter while using them!

    Q. Why doesn't this ROM support Xposed?
    A. Xposed is a hack that is geared towards AOSP, custom ROM's modify the framework a lot, so Xposed can cause a ton of issues on custom ROM's. Now it might work for you, however it is not to be discussed in this thread, and you should refrain from posting bug reports.

    Q. Alright, but I still want to flash Xposed, so which version do I need to install?
    A. You will need to use the version arm64/arm/whatever for SDK 27.

    Flashing the ROM:
    Q. What do I need to know before flashing?
    A. Check the install instructions in the first post...

    Q. Can the builds be dirty flashed over each other?
    A. Yes, however make a nandroid backup first as there is a chance of getting a bootloop or encountering bugs. Also bugs may only be reported on a clean flash.

    Q. How do I dirty flash builds?
    A. Wipe ART/Dalvik cache. Flash the ROM, your preferred root solution and reboot. Or just use the OTA app to preform that task for you.

    Q. How do I flash kernel builds?
    A1. If it's a .img file, boot into TWRP and go to the install page in TWRP, in the bottom right corner select "install image", select the desired kernel, then select "boot", then swipe to flash, then go back to the install screen and install your root method again, if you don't want to loose root and reboot.
    A2. If it's a flashable ZIP, you can flash it together with a ROM update or separately. Go to the install page in TWRP, choose the kernel zip (or add it to the flash queue right after the ROM zip). Then add your root method to the queue if you don't want to loose root. Now swipe to flash, and then reboot.

    Using the ROM:
    Q. How do I enable software buttons?
    A. Go to Aicp Extras/Navigation bar, and enable it.

    Q. I installed a bad theme and now I'm getting a bootloop, how do I fix it?
    A. In TWRP, flash the substratum rescue zip that's in the substratum folder on the internal storage.

    Q. I keep losing root with Magisk, how do I fix it?
    A. Check this out. If that doesn't work for you, ask for help in this thread, read or ask in the Magisk thread on XDA or just re-flash Magisk!

    Q. I'm having issues with WhatsApp, how do I fix it?
    A. Read this

    Q. Do I need to provide a logcat if I'm reporting a bug?
    A. If you want it to be fixed faster (or at all) then yes, you should definitely provide a logcat. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. and do not post the content here. Thanks.

    Q. How do I get a logcat, what type should I get and more questions that can conveniently be answered by my pre-determined answer?
    A1. Read this thoroughly. Also, here's a good app for getting logs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tortel.syslog (Root needed).
    A2. If you are already rooted, you can use the built-in feature to make a logcat and provide that. Just look into the others section in the AICP Extras main page.


    instructions.png

    The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android Oreo. You don't need to install any Add-on's, simply download the latest ROM, flash it and go!
    If you want the device to run the ROM "rooted", you can flash a root solution of your choice after the ROM Zipfile.

    It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug.
    If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.
    How to flash:
    (Again: Don't do it if you don't know it!)

    Boot TWRP
    FORMAT data partition
    Sideload the rom in TWRP, the gapps are included in the rom zip

    The ROM has GApps persistence in between dirty flashes, so you only have to flash them once!
    The root solution should be flashed together with every OTA update (= ROM Update)



    Currently Supported Root Solutions:

    Magisk stable
    Magisk versions higher than 14.0 doesn't require flash on every dirty flash depending on the device, some devices need you to flash it every time, unless your maintainer says otherwise it should be fine

    KERNEL:
    The kernel that the rom uses is made by me, starting from a fresh ALS base with various additions and improvements.

    Did I say new build coming soon? Well, great news. After a lot of work on the P builds squashing every single bug out and improving both performance and battery, I think I finally have something XDA worthy. This thread will be closed and a new one will be opened with all the great stuff. Stay tuned!

    Alright guys, sorry for being away. A lot of parties and I was more drunk than sober the past few days. Although, this didn't stop me from making a huge update:
    Completely remade the kernel from scratch, dropped OEM source and now using ALS for a base
    Kernel running in enforcing
    Fixed encryption for everyone
    Plus a lot other things
    Rom: https://transfer.sh/zU5DF/aicp_mata_o-13.1-UNOFFICIAL-20180607.zip
    Kernel: https://transfer.sh/kgEZF/boot.img
    ATTENTION!!!!! Everyone needs to FORMAT the data partition for the new update. Completely changed the encryption type. Sorry for the inconvenience but it was one of the only ways to fix the stupid fc'es.
    If everything behaves good, tomorrow or overmorrow the rom is OFFICIAL! :)
