AICP
Android Ice Cold Project

AICP is known by everyone as the "Ice Cold Project" that started on a Desire HD years ago and since then evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community 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 when it comes to hardware, drivers and some features.
With the rebrand of CM to LineageOS (LAOS) we are now actually LAOS based with some tweaks from AOSP.

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

instructions.png


The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android Nougat. You don't need to install any Add-Ons, simply download the latest ROM, GApps, 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 if possible 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!)

Download the ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device
Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended)
Wipe system, Cache, data and ART/Dalvik cache
Flash ROM Zipfile
Flash/Install GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work)
Flash/Install the root solution of choice (optional)
Reboot to system

The ROM has GApps persistance 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)!



Supported root solutions:


Magisk v13.x

SuperSU - stable and beta available (Site by CCMT that took over the the marketing from chainfire)
SuperSU - direct download link for the latest SuperSU directly from the dev (chainfire)

Lineage SU-addon (check your needed version: 14.1 arm or arm64) -> the removal zip is available here too.


PREREQUISITE FOR OTA:
To be able to flash using the buildin OTA app that needs TWRP recovery installed to work.
You can still use LAOS recovery and OTA app, but you will need to download the zip file and flash it manually from within your recovery. Zip gets saved in the "AICP_ota" folder on your internal storage.
Please be sure that you are on the latest TWRP recovery.

If you want to contribute to the AICP or wanna see what is being worked on/merged, feel free to visit our Gerrit review system. (Link is at the bottom!!!)

- You should be able to use the volume sliders to decrease volume
- Google Apps issue, not related to AICP, use different GApps
- Why should it contain pixel launcher?
- Have you clean flashed? Can you provide a logcat?
- Have you tried out whether mobile network is working?

@SpiritCroc,
Must say i have been using now for almost 3 days continuously powered on with occasional reboots for changes. I have no issues, FC's, lags, screen freezing, etc. with the ROM, running nice and smooth for me and Battery life is as good as other ROMs used. Been listening to music, playing Asphalt 8 & other games, web browsing, file transfers between tab and phone without issue.
Thank you for the ROM it is NICE!!!!:good::D

Hm... did you try out whether the volume issue is the same for all audio streams (media playback, ringtone, ...)?

Uploaded a new test build for castor, as the first one I uploaded is already two weeks old.

First official weekly for castor_windy should get compiled/released later today

Is it possible to use castor_windy ROM on a castor?
I do not need GSM module on my Castor as I am happy with Bluetooth tethering when using it without Wi-Fi.

Please use the test build for castor; if you can report that it's ready for weeklies, I'll enable it for weeklies :)
Hm, it says nightly on the website? It's weekly actually

    CHANGES (READ THIS BEFORE FLASHING!):
    =====================================
    YES. AICP is going to build rootless builds.
    This change will happen during a short period of time.
    I could explain the decision for that,
    but that would not be understandable for all users, so I put it this way...
    Going rootless means that the ROM will NOT come with any Root or SU built in anymore.
    There will be no Magisk - as a built-in root solution - be provided when the user flashes the ROM zip file.
    What you will have to do (if you don't do it by now):
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You will have to flash a root solution of your choice (lineage-su addon, SuperSU or Magisk) by yourself after the ROM.
    I will link the appropriate solutions here in this post.
    REMEMBER:
    First flash the ROM, then your desired root solution!
    This MUST also be done on every dirty flash to ensure root is not lost!
    This MUST be done when using the OTA app too! Just add the "root" zipfile after the ROM!
    What will be noticeable to the user:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    1. We had to cut out some features for getting this done. Those are:
    a. The SELinux switch in the dev options is gone for now.
    This can also be done by other apps, if necessary.
    b. The feature to flash another bootanimation from AICP Extras is gone.
    You can still use a flashable ZIP from TWRP or Substratum.
    c. The built-in logcat feature in AICP Extras will be gone.
    Most users did not use it either as it only can store max. 400KB.
    We already advised to use Catlog or Syslog Apps (both free on Play store).
    Remember that both need root!
    d. The built-in "System app remover" will be gone, as it required root to run.
    2. You will not see Magisk Manager in the app folder, of course.
    3. Remember that without a root solution some other apps e.g. Kernel Audiutor will also not work.
    Whatever you choose. Lineage SU options are in dev options in settings. The others use separate Apps.
    Links to tested root solutions (download from the thread):
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Magisk (remember that v12 need the Manager to be flashed separately. v13 will have it buildin the flashable ZIP:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/beta-magisk-v13-0-0980cb6-t3618589
    SuperSU (Use whatever works for you, stable or beta):
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/stable-2016-09-01supersu-v2-78-release-t3452703
    https://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
    Lineage SU-addon (check your needed version 14.1 arm or arm64!):
    https://download.lineageos.org/extras
    -> the removal zip is available here too.

    WLAN will be fixed in next build

    EDIT: Same might apply for bluetooth

    Compiled latest TWRP, can somebody with a castor try out whether
    a) It works
    b) Magisk installs when using it?
