ABOUT
CatalystOS is focused on performance, smoothness and stability with only necessary customisation. We bring some never seen before features to the custom rom community like schedule reboot and per-app landscape refresh rate, schedule airplane mode for standby battery saving. OTA updates are also supported. We usually send updates every weekend. This rom is co-developed by @Umang96 and @LordShenron .

SOME FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
  • Force app refresh rate - force any app on min/max/dynamic refresh rate to have better control
  • Force app landscape refresh rate - force any app to run on min refresh rate when in landscape
  • Schedule reboot - reboot your phone automatically at specific time
  • Schedule airplane mode - set automatic airplane mode on/off time to save battery
  • Better (smaller) privacy indicators, charging indicator, cpu info overlay tile
  • DT2W, DT2S on homescreen/lockscreen/statusbar
  • Rom and kernel + dt side performance improvements
WHAT WORKS?
  • Almost everything
WHAT DOESN'T WORK?
INSTRUCTIONS TO FLASH -
  1. Have unlocked bootloader
  2. adb reboot fastboot
  3. fastboot flash boot boot.img
  4. fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img
  5. reboot to recovery now
  6. wipe data because you are changing rom
  7. select adb sideload
  8. adb sideload CatalystOS_xxxxxxx.zip

Excuse me, NFC, infrared, double click to light up the screen, raise your hand to light up the screen, and unlock your face. Are these normal

I had few issues during installing ROM because OrangeFox was replaced with default LoS recovery, but after few attempts it worked.

ROM seems to work smoothly. Fast charging looks working (I've over 8A now), GPS finds me fast. I managed to install succesfully Magisk or Viper4Android without any problems (I am surprised, it works even without Legace mode with my custom kernels and presets).

However, I miss few features and I hope they will be added someday.
- customization of AOD screen, I'm not saying they should be as advanced as on MIUI, but now... there is nothing except enable/disable via status bar and... hours for auto-disable AOD. I like always on display, but during night It's unecessary.
- swipe status bar to change brightness and remove auto-brightness icon
- usb tethering when clicking hotspot tile (it's faster than going to settings, type "usb teth..." and open it)
- hold longer power button to enable torchlight

edit:
- position of AOD display does not change, clock is always on top left corner and battery on bottom, to my mind it should change from time to time to avoid pixel burn-in.

@Umang96 the touch sensitivity seem a bit off, swipe up to open app drawer gesture require more motion than usual. Beside, can you add option to change system font? Android without Google Product Sans feel weird. Everything else is perfect to me. Thank you and keep up the good work!

I noticed it too on SwiftKey, I lowered vibrations for pressing keys to minimal 1ms, but they're still strong.

    Same question, which rec to use
    Can I flash with ofox? Will OTA work or flash boot and vendor boot needed?
    I installed it with TWRP and OTA can work
