Disclaimer:
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 cache 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.

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.

Can I use it without Gapps?

I guess the subject says it all. Can I use this ROM without the Gapps? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. I've never used a custom ROM, but I'd like to get rid of the Google stuff. Maybe use microG just to be able to install some apps which I can only get through the Play Store. Is it possible?

Everything working well for me, but not quite sure how to use substratum with this ROM. Notes say it should be mentioned under system/misc, but I don't see anything. Downloading the substratum app doesn't help either.

Anyone have any idea?

I refer to turn of some pixel to have more battery life...iaosip has it
ok i remember that in aosip. and never used it. i tried it but didn't feel like using it. btw no, that's feature is not included in aquarios afaik, or at least i didn't see it anywhere, but not a problem for me i prefer things that are included here and missing in aosip (custom fonts for example but there are others i don't remember now) :eek:

I haven't installed this ROM yet so I don't know substratum theme engine is working on this ROM yet.
But my experience is that most Custom ROM'S work flawlessly with substratum( myself I use swift black).
This weekend I'll try aquariusos ROM and will give feedback on substratum and aquarios ROM.

I am looking to flash this for the first rom flash on this phone. My phone currently has the January update with root. Do I just need to flash vendor image before updating or do I need to flash stock image of current? Been holding off flashing roms on this phone. Also, can someone list the correct procedure. From what I gathered, flash vendor, rom, twrp. Reboot. Then flash magisk. Is this right? Thanks.

Theming is no problem.
I have the swift installer working with no issues.....
The programm is similar to substratum, also it only works with root access......

from January not only vendor has been upgraded, but also bootloader and radio. so you should upgrade all ( bootloader, radio and vendor) and in both slots, then factory reset, flash rom and twrp, reboot ;)
