We are NOT responsible for anything that may happen to your device as a result of flashing ROMs, kernels, or installing any other mod. You are responsible for your own actions and bad decisions - so stop blaming others! ;)

This is a user friendly thread. Please be respectful and courteous to other users. While feature requests will be considered, AquariOS tries to maintain a ROM that is smooth and stable, so adding every feature under the sun is not the plan here.



READ!​
1. Unless I tell you otherwise, you MUST always, absolutely, positively, most certainly wipe data AND system before flashing AquariOS...without a doubt!

2. Don't report bugs if you haven't followed directions - most likely it's user error at that point as far as I'm concerned.

3. Always run a backup before doing anything.

4. Provide a log when reporting a bug (see more info below).

5. Be respectful.

ROM: Latest AquariOS build

GApps: SimpleGapps


IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES:
1. Save ALL content you wish to keep on your PC or in a cloud.
2. Download this version of TWRP, ROM and Gapps to your PC.
3. Boot device into bootloader mode, then do:
Code:
fastboot -w
4. Install TWRP and enter recovery.
5. Flash ROM & Gapps.
6. Reboot system. Done :)

* Do NOT flash any vendor images, as this is included in ROM (thanks to StatiXOS team). If you run into any issues with getting AquariOS to boot, you will likely want to start this process over and do a flash-all install of the latest Google angler image before proceeding to step 3 (fastboot -w). If you're still having issues, feel free to ask for help in here or in our Telegram chat.


Q & A
Read this before telling everyone something is broken!

1. Android Pay isn't working!! What do I do?
Go into Magisk settings and toggle on the "Hide Magisk" option. Then try again. Also, I've found once in a great while, even with this enabled, it will say it failed - if this happens, just try again...it'll work.

2. It's bootlooping after flashing ROM with Magisk - now what?
Don't flash Magisk until you have already booted into the new AquariOS build at least once. If that wasn't your issue, sometimes Substratum overlays can cause bootloops. If you have anything applied, flash the SubstratumRescue zip from your substratum directory

3. Why is the built-in System Theme section greyed-out (background, accent, & fonts)?
When the Substratum app is installed, this section will become inaccessible in order to prevent conflicts. You CANNOT use them both at once!


Reporting a bug?
See how to do so here:

BEFORE REPORTING A BUG:
1. Flash the SubstratumRescue zip and see if your issue is still there.
2. If you have flashed a custom kernel or ANY OTHER MODs, delete 'data/system/packages_cache' then wipe dalvik/cache, and flash AquariOS again WITHOUT any additional modifications/custom kernel.
3. Check to see if your issue persists.

*Do NOT even bother reporting an issue if you have dirty-flashed AquariOS over some other ROM! We WILL be able to tell!

Logs are crucial to resolving almost any kind of issue. You need to provide a log in order for the issue to be addressed. Please also include info on how to reproduce the reported bug if possible (maybe even take a screen recording for us ;)).

If you need a log extracting app, try out CatLog!
Either save your log locally and share it, or paste your log into an online code sharing tool like hastebin.com - then share the URL after hitting the SAVE icon.

Good job. I would like to thank you for this feature rich rom. I would like to report my thoughts so far.
On the first boot, the interface is laggy (probably due to setup scripts running in background). After a while and on the second boot, the lag goes away. I installed ElementalX kernel after the second boot, when the phone seemed stable enough. Set minimum CPU frequencies, disabled ElementalX gestures, and disabled ZRam through terminal, to avoid CPU waste on ram compression (I am a battery freak!). Greenify with aggressive doze on, google assistant with "ok google" during active screen, with almost all built in AquariOS and stock gestures on. Replaced camera with Camera NX.
The screen on battery drain seems no different than the stock to me, however, since I have installed another kernel it is not safe to assume my experience is exactly as developers planned. This is why I wont submit any log, yet I am happy with the setup, no force closes or reboots so far.
ٌWhat makes this ROM exciting to me is the extra features which I could not get without Xposed. This include network traffic, which tells a lot about the quality of connection, custom quick setting icon placement, physical button shortcut for torch, and night mode with warm color filter. I have all these functionalities through Xposed on my other phone, but Xposed is not stable on 8, which was a concern for me. I really appreciate the effort and time your team has put into this ROM, keep up the good work.

PS. I did not stay on the provided kernel so long, but I probably could achieve the same results through Kernel Auditor, which is what I should have done in the first place! The experience with provided kernel was as smooth as it could be (after the second boot).

I had to install kernel auditor

Then mess around with the cores settings all is good now
I did have another question about the themeinterfacer I installed substratium but I had the thought I would not need it
I looked in aquarius settings and did not find anything or in display other than the accent colour what am I missing?

What else would there be? You get a light or dark set up with accents, and some transparency control. As stated in the post.

did it take to much time to boot 1st time ?

I wouldn't say it takes longer then any other ROM , but i don't stare at the clock while its booting.

There is an issue preciously noted about lag on first boot, that goes away after a reboot, so that might make it slower ?

@calebcabob

Thanks for the rom.....are there any functions/features not working?
He doesn't mess with his 6p much, so I'd quote me, or ask generally about the builds, but no, everything is working less anyone finds something.

I ended up flashing it. It was a little laggy to me. Not sure why. Also had a few features missing that I had gotten used to....but it had some nice additions that I haven't seen elsewhere.....all in all good rom though

Seems like the ROM is doing something terribly wrong. When I setup a PIN on first boot, and confirm it's working by inserting it when unlocking my device, and then try to get into recovery it doesn't work. System says the PIN is incorrect, and also on a normal reboot of the software.

Isn't the issue with pin in recovery because of setting a pin on boot? If that's the case you'd have to do some looking online. I think there's very specific ways you have to make the pin, have to use numbers, can only use a specific number of digits, etc.


I don't use pin on boot , so you'd have to do a search for answers.

If you're saying that you put in a pin, reboot and then the pin won't unlock the device, there's gotta be something wrong with your setup, I've used pin and FP unlock on every build, and I have never had an issue unlocking with pin.

Again, as stated, it is laggy until you reboot one time. After that I have never had lag with normal use.
