Hi guys,

I'm building an extra lean LineageOS 14.1 ROM for angler with a few added features. A lot of packages have been stripped down, only the bare minimum is built to provide a fast and stable ROM. That gives you much more freedom as you can install exactly what you really want from the Playstore. You can install most of the missing packages manually, they are available in a flashable zip on the server (see second post).

My approach for DARK ROM 14.1 is to add as many Pixel features as possible while keeping a solid LineageOS base.

Key features
- Full OMS support (rootless)
- Signature spoofing support
- Pixel Launcher (with the provided GAPPS package)
- Pixel animated navbar (with on/off switch)
- Pixel sounds
- Pixel accent colors
- Pixel bootanimation with sound
- Rounded icons
- Google Assistant
- Night Light
- Night Light Brightness
- Choose between dialer and voice assistant in lockscreen
- Hide next alarm from expanded status bar and lockscreen
- Disable the boot animation sound
- Secure lockscreen (disables status bar pull down, quick settings tiles, power button and lockscreen shortcuts)
- Double tap the lock icon on the lockscreen to sleep
- Longpress power button while screen off to trigger flashlight
- Hide bluetooth icon when disconnected
- Volume steps
- Quick unlock pin/password
- Remove album art from lockscreen
- Date in status bar
- Battery bar
- Custom headers
- Smart pulldown
- Volume button controls media volume anywhere
- Change navbar height
- Screenshot tile
- Caffeine tile
- Sync tile
- Reboot/recovery tile
- Music tile
- USB Tethering tile
- NFC tile
- Quick settings custom rows/columns
- Turn on/off mobile data with single click on collapsed quick settings
- Status bar ticker
- Separate ring and notification volume
- Specific color for 100% charged battery
- Prevent accidental wakeup
- Remove settings suggestions
- Show WiFi SSID in status bar
- Show carrier label in status bar
- Hide carrier label when WiFi SSID is showing
- Hide carrier label on the lockscreen (or rename to whatever you want)
- Hide the low battery warning notification
- Remove the orange status bar and navigation bar when in battery saver mode
- One hand mode
- Choose doze brightness
- Adjust animation scale precisely with a slider
- Dynamic nav bar color (changes color to the same of status bar)
- In-call vibration options (on connect, on call waiting and on disconnect)

SafetyNet
The ROM is already designed to pass SafetyNet out of the box. No need to lock the bootloader (which I advise you to do ONLY on a pure factory image install) because the kernel has the patch for it. If you want root, you'll need to install Magisk, which comes pre-rooted. Then, enable Magisk Hide in Magisk Manager, hard reboot and you should be good to go. Also, do not enable busybox in Magisk Manager, that will cause you to randomly lose root. You'll get all you need to know on the Magisk thread.

ViPER4Android/ViPER4Arise
The ROM is designed to work with both ViPER4Android and ViPER4Arise out of the box without the need for SuperSU or any Magisk module. The SEPolicy already contains the necessary permissions for them to work even in Enforcing. All you need to do is flash the package of your choice.

Installation
You will need latest radio (03.81) and latest bootloader (03.68)
Latest vendor image (N2G48C) is also needed
Latest TWRP recovery for angler is highly recommended

If coming from any other ROM
- Backup first... always backup first
- Wipe system, data, cache and dalvik cache
- Install DARK ROM
- Install provided GAPPS (mandatory)
- Install root package of your choice (I recommend Magisk)
Enjoy !

If coming from a previous build of mine
- Backup (you know it)
- Dirty flash DARK ROM
- Install root package of your choice
Enjoy! (if anything goes wrong, clean flash)

Download

To download GAPPS and Extras

To download delta updates
Go to Settings/About phone/System updates and use the OpenDelta app to automatically download delta updates.

Delta Updates
Here are a few explanations on how to use delta updates. First, you will need to keep the first full build you downloaded on your sdcard (any full build that have NIGHTLY in the filename will do). I recommend that you keep it on the root of your sdcard until you flash a new build with the OpenDelta app. After that, the OpenDelta app will automatically place a new flashable zip inside the OpenDelta folder that will be used for the next delta updates. At that point you can delete the build on the root of your sdcard, but you will need to keep the (latest) file in the OpenDelta folder at all times to keep the delta updates working.

You will also notice a folder named FlashAfterUpdate in the OpenDelta folder. As its name suggests, any flashable zip files that you put in this folder will be flashed automatically after the update. I recommend that you put all your extra flashable zips there, cause if you use the app to auto-flash the latest build, it will reboot automatically after updating, which means you won't have the opportunity to manually flash other zips. If you want root to survive, you need to put your root package there.

Translations
If you want to help translate the ROM in your language, here are my Crowdin projects. Let me know if you want me to add another language.

Donations
Please consider a donation if you like my work ! I spend a lot of time and effort working on this, so if you can spare a few bucks, please buy me a beer (so I can relax when I'm stuck on a stubborn bug) or a coffee (so I can work on it later in the night). If you decide to do so, I'll gladly add you to the Donation Hall of Fame (see second post) ;)

Many thanks to those generous donors !!! They make DARK ROM possible.

Extra Packages
On the server you will find a file named ExtraPackages_date.zip which contains a few apps that are not available out of the box in my builds (see list). You won't have to flash it every update, since there is a survival script. I suggest you open the zip and remove the files you don't need before flashing it the first time.
Here is what's included:
- Calendar (AOSP Calendar)
- Contacts (AOSP Contacts)
- DeskClock (AOSP Clock)
- Dialer (AOSP Dialer)
- Eleven (LOS Music player)
- ExactCalculator (LOS Calculator)
- Gallery2 (AOSP Photos)
- Jelly (LOS Browser)
- LatinIME (AOSP Keyboard)
- Messaging (AOSP SMS)
- Recorder (LOS Recorder)
- Snap (LOS Camera)
- Stk (AOSP SIM card toolkit)
- Trebuchet (LOS Launcher)

Note that if you install my GAPPS and the complete Extra packages, you'll end up with two Phone app and two Contacts apps. Simply delete the GoogleContacts and GoogleDialer in the system/priv-app and reboot. If you choose to use the AOSP Dialer instead of Google Dialer, you'll need to go to Settings/Apps/Gear Icon (top right) and choose the AOSP Dialer as default phone app, otherwise you won't be able to make calls.

Dark_Eyes can u name this rom a stable?

If you're asking if it's stable, it is! I've been running it on my phone for a good month now and no issues whatsoever. There might be some theming inconsistencies though, as I just added it, but other than that it's rock solid.

If not, I'm sorry I didn't get your question.

Maybe my question has bad form, so sorry do I. Thanks for the answer:)

    New build is up!

    Guys,

    I just pushed a brand new build. It has all upstream patches from LineageOS, which includes the latest september security update and the blueborne patch for the kernel. I advise you to check if the custom kernel that you prefer has that blueborne patch as well. I haven't seen much kernels around that have it in. I also fixed a couple of bugs and polished the overall build. It should be close to perfection now. All in all I feel this is a very good build. It should have all translations in (except hindi) with addition of Turkish and Korean! Here is a detailed changelog:

    - September security patch
    - Blueborne kernel patch
    - Immersive recents (hide status bar, navigation bar or both)
    - Memory bar in recents
    - Option to remove the lock task in recents
    - Prevent locked task from being swiped away
    - Add a switch to remove toast icon
    - Add/remove QS tiles with one click
    - Two columns in dashboard
    - Hide cellular icon in status bar when the sim card is not provisioned
    - Fix the charging sound option

    It seems that Lineage is making good progress on the lineage-15 development, I'll keep a close look at it and start to work on the dark_oreo soon ;)

    I know I'm getting annoying with this, but if you have a few bucks to spare and you enjoy my work, please consider a donation. My PayPal account is here. Many thanks in advance, it is truly appreciated.

    I hope you like this release ;)

    New build is up!

    Guys,

    I just pushed a brand new build with latest LineageOS updates, and I also added support for a couple of things. First, AptXHD is now built-in and should work out of the box. Refer to this thread for more info :

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-3/themes/mod-aptx-codec-t3521228?nocache=1

    I also added support for WakeBlock, you can get the app there, along with all the info you need :

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-6p/development/wakeblock-blocking-drain-late-t3526313

    Big thanks to @GioBozza for the hard work!

    Lastely, I added support fot Screen Stabilization. The app is in the new Extra_Packages, but the backend support is already in. I can't say I noticed a big difference, but you can try and provide feedback. The original github with a bit of info is here :

    https://github.com/ryanchyshyn/aosp_screen_stabilization

    As always, please consider a small donation if you can afford it. It really makes a big difference for me. Hit my PayPal here Thanks in advance !!!

    Enjoy !
