Wahoo, Omni at last! Can't wait to see the great things to come, Omni was my daily driver on N5 and it was perfect.
Thanks, dev and Omni team!
Cheers

So is this unofficial or just an alpha official build?

Shouldn't go in original development if its unofficial right?

Unofficial alpha build. Will see to it if I have to make it official.

Original development means that even if it's unofficial or official, I have borrowed device trees from Google and made significant changes to fix many things. Enjoy the rom.

Note: most probably next build would include multiuser.

@##W4TCH0UT## - Thanks for the credit! I just built this again to see if the advanced settings was fixed. Pretty sure that it's just a placeholder for mods that will be added in the future. That's probably why it's FC'ing. How did you get the kernel to build correctly? I'm still having issues with the kernel corrupting while it builds Omni.

No features have been forward ported from the android-4.4 branch since most are focusing on integrating support for non-nexus devices

Added this line in boardconfig.mk:
Code:
BOARD_KERNEL_IMAGE_NAME := zImage-dtb

    I know there's all sorts of stuff going around Layers right now, so I totally understand if you have no intention of officially supporting it. I'm guessing that if it DOES work, that it's just by coincidence?
    Do you have any intention to incorporate any other theming engine in the future?
    Thank you.

    For right now, there is no solid, set-in-stone discussion of any theme engine for Omni. @Entropy512 has commits on gerrit from a few months ago before it was dropped for reasons that can be found through your own research.

    Layers will work somewhat because Sony created RRO and it was merged into AOSP (Layers is based entirely on RRO) but for now, Layers is not fully compatible with Omni.

    When a full-blown theme engine will be incorporated, I have no idea, nor does anyone else for that matter.


    I think this is the last time I answer any questions regarding Layers as well, as it's been discussed in here a few times already :highfive: (note to self so I can just quote this in the future)

    Anyway, I have builds up for 1224 that I'll post when I get home tomorrow evening (I may just upload to AFH again now, but due to issues in the past month I don't think I trust it). I'm not at home and on metered internet so uploading a 400mb ROM is totally out of the question until I get back home on my desktop.

    Ended up doing this before dinner..
