STATUS: ALPHA

REQUIREMENT: TWRP 2.7.1 or newer

BEFORE FLASHING ANDROID 5.0 the first time: PERFORM A WIPE + ADVANCED->FORMAT SYSTEM (in TWRP).

STEP 1: Download SELF-COMPILED BUILD OF CM12.0 (some open review items are applied to this build):
https://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/otterx/cm12/

STEP 3: Reboot to recovery, wipe data and flash both .zip files (ROM first, then gapps).

CURRENT KNOWN ISSUES:
  • Initial setup can be *very* slow. *BE PATIENT.*
  • Google Play Movies needs DRM fixes, it won't work.
  • Current rotation settings starts the device in "Landscape", this may change
  • Some of the transparency settings are disabled due to low RAM. Needs work.
  • High battery drain while idle. 12%+ a day with wifi enabled.

  • Audio
  • Wifi
  • Hardware accelerated graphics
  • Hardware accelerated codecs for audio/video

Also:

Right now some transparency settings are turned off due to low ram. Going to look into re-enabling.

Battery drain is high atm. 12%+ a day sitting idle.
If you can't stand to not have transparency and are willing to suffer some performance, you can turn the low_ram setting in the build.prop to false. (Until the performance setting is back that forces transparency)

Thank you very much! Work well!
Is there any way to bring back rotation settings? I need only 3 directions.
Any way to bring back to quick panel volume and sound options? Is not possible to turn off sound :(

For now I'm pushing the last 2 review items that we need to get OtterX back on CM nightlies for CM12. Then we can all sit back and watch the magic as CM does their thing re-adding all their UI changes.

    Updated TWRP v2.8.2.0 for OtterX is now available here:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=50852364&postcount=3

    This was built from Android 5.0 sources.

    Should have a build update in the next day or 2 with minor changes to the device:
    - Removed the low-ram build.prop. OS is just too ugly and no fun to use.
    - To help with the removal of low-ram build.prop, I've added some new oom adj settings, to better use the zRAM swap. It's a WIP.
    - Not sure what to do about "recents" lag. I wish we could build toggle back to the old style recents list for lower-end GPUs. :/

    Android 5.1

    I compiled a CyanogenMod 12.1 build for otterx yesterday. This should be faster then previous builds since it has more low-ram optimizations. It also has transparency :D.

    I use these minimal gapps with this ROM.

    Download

    This is my first ROM compiled with Ubuntu 15.04.
