WE NOW HAVE AN OFFICIAL TELEGRAM GROUP - StatiXOS @ Telegram.

Features

Right now you are gonna find a mixed StatiX/AOSP experience as this is a brand new project:
  • Spark Settings Panel introduced.
  • Always-On Display enabled (on devices that support it).
  • Smart Pixels enabled (on devices that support it).
  • Advanced reboot
  • Dark mode and accent theming
  • Statusbar battery styles

Known issues

Well, these issues are not that annoying after all.
  • A few bugs related to Wireless Hotspot: 5GHz not working for all countries;
  • VoLTE doesn't work: for instance if you are a Verizon user the phone will fall back to 2G when a call is incoming.
  • FI USERS: Download the Fi official where WFC works (only on Fi, other carriers will have the issue above.)

A few notes before you proceed
  • Before going straight to the download section there’s something we would like to tell you: we have changed the default encryption method for the phone, migrating to File-Based Encryption (you can get more information on the official Google documentation page). In order to get this encryption mode working, you will need to use our custom recovery (compiled from the latest source) which is compatible with this encryption and, just for the first time, you will have to wipe your internal data - so, backup your data before proceeding.

Installation instructions

Note: If your phone only has 4 cores, download the BLOD patch (you can find it in the download section), flash our recovery.img from your working TWRP and then install the BLOD patch.

  • Grab our recovery from the downloads section and install it.
    - THROUGH TWRP:
    Install Zip > Install Image > Choose ‘recovery.img’ > Select partition ‘Recovery’ > Swipe to confirm flash​
    - OR THROUGH FASTBOOT:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  • Install the official ROM, GApps and then wipe your internal data partition.
    - THROUGH TWRP
    Wipe > Format data
    - OR THROUGH FASTBOOT
    Code:
    fastboot -w
  • Reboot into system and wait until the process finishes, it could take a little bit. After the installation is done I suggest waiting before using the phone because it usually goes into thermal throttling after installing a ROM.

Q&A

I will use this second post for giving some Q&A about the current build.

Q: After I make a call the phone application disappears and I can't close the call nor I can input numbers, what can I do?
A: In order to properly use the phone calls you will have to set the default Phone application (this will be fixed in the next releases), to do so follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Move to Apps & notifications
  3. Scroll down and open Default apps
  4. Tap on Phone app and then on Phone (even though it's already checked)
  5. Go back and you will see Phone set as default application

Q: I can't connect to hidden WiFi AP, what can I do?
A: In order to connect to hidden AP you need to set the hidden flag otherwise the phone won't be able to connect to it. You can find this option under the Advanced section while you add a new network.

Q: After installing the rom I needed to put in a password. Now suddenly last week not any more.
A: FBE works differently from FDE.
When you set a fingerprint, for instance, you will be required to add either a PIN or a password — when you do, you will have to enter such password to decrypt your storage as well.
Logically speaking, if you remove the fingerprint (or password / PIN) you won't be asked to add such code in TWRP anymore.

Q: I want to protect my nudes, so I need to encrypt my phone. What do I do?
A: Flash the latest FBE build and recovery. Do not flash Magisk before encrypting your phone otherwise you'll end in a bootloop.

Q: Google Feed is empty/blank?
A: Open Google app and then force close it. Go back to Google Feed and it should be fine.

Q: Some Google app shows login error?
A: Flash latest Open GApps.

Q: Can I use an Oreo (8.1) kernel with this ROM?
A: Yes. Any Oreo kernel *should* work - but some users reported that random reboot may occur.

Q: I'm running a stable build. Can I dirty flash a testing build?
A: No. You can only dirty flash a stable build over a stable build and a testing build over a testing build. So if you want to flash a testing build over a stable build, you'll have to clean flash.

Q: I tried to install 8.1 but my phone goes into bootloop, what can I do?
A: The ROM flashes the vendor partition, this means that you will have to reflash the stock vendor image release by Google. You can find the image on this website or inside the whole factory image found on Google developers page.

Q: Phone app disappears after answering a call/can't close the call?
A: Settings > Apps & notifications > Default apps and tap on phone app and then on Phone (even though it's already checked).

Q: Sparks menu is empty?
A: Yes. It's still in development.

Q: How to install Magisk?
A: Flash Magisk zip file via recovery. After that install Magisk Manager via apk file to make it show up in the app drawer.

Thanks to @simarguram for taking care of this section.

Made changelog please
Thanks for your work!

Yes, I was in hurry since I derped the first creation of the thread.
The initial release doesn't have any changes because there's not another publicly available release to compare with, but I can tell we went through a lot of compilations and debug routines - you can check our source code here.

installed. will let you know further. booted fine.

Thank you very much for your feedback.
I find the chance to give a feedback as well, the new build is at 70% with about 20K targets remaining.
As I said before the new version will have a fix for the Camera, we will stop using GApps as prebuilt (you will have to flash them separately) and the ROM should become user release with official signature.

Will this ROM stay pure AOSP or add more features?

its working smooth. as you said camera is not working on this build. In next build it will. apart from that everything is working. wifi, data, calling, etc. all the things that i was able to check in short span work well.

We are going to add more features once we pass the second phase of user release, we still need to enforce SELinux (that's gonna arrive soon as well).
Once we are sure that everything is working properly you will start seeing new features, actually me and the lead developer are eager to add features and we will soon.

I am so happy that you are feeling the smoothness as well, as you can see here I have camera working on my end due to the recent commits we made that are not available in the temporary build I posted.
Keep testing it, also follow the second post in order to get a fully functional Phone application (just a few steps, nothing much).

Great work!

Flashed the [temporary] build. Everything that has been listed as working, work really well. Also, I had zero issues with CameraNX in the few minutes that I tested it for. Flashlight wasn't working on first boot, but it started to, a couple of reboots later. Everything feels so much more smoother than Oreo.
Thanks for still supporting angler :)

Yes, I forgot to report that on the temporary build third party application such as OpenCamera just work fine because they do not rely on the phone's media_profiles.
Check this commit if you want further details on it.
Also, thanks for your feedback :)

    Q&A

    I will use this second post for giving some Q&A about the current build.

    Q: After I make a call the phone application disappears and I can't close the call nor I can input numbers, what can I do?
    A: In order to properly use the phone calls you will have to set the default Phone application (this will be fixed in the next releases), to do so follow these steps:

    1. Open Settings
    2. Move to Apps & notifications
    3. Scroll down and open Default apps
    4. Tap on Phone app and then on Phone (even though it's already checked)
    5. Go back and you will see Phone set as default application

    Q: I can't connect to hidden WiFi AP, what can I do?
    A: In order to connect to hidden AP you need to set the hidden flag otherwise the phone won't be able to connect to it. You can find this option under the Advanced section while you add a new network.

    Q: After installing the rom I needed to put in a password. Now suddenly last week not any more.
    A: FBE works differently from FDE.
    When you set a fingerprint, for instance, you will be required to add either a PIN or a password — when you do, you will have to enter such password to decrypt your storage as well.
    Logically speaking, if you remove the fingerprint (or password / PIN) you won't be asked to add such code in TWRP anymore.

    Q: I want to protect my nudes, so I need to encrypt my phone. What do I do?
    A: Flash the latest FBE build and recovery. Do not flash Magisk before encrypting your phone otherwise you'll end in a bootloop.

    Q: Google Feed is empty/blank?
    A: Open Google app and then force close it. Go back to Google Feed and it should be fine.

    Q: Some Google app shows login error?
    A: Flash latest Open GApps.

    Q: Can I use an Oreo (8.1) kernel with this ROM?
    A: Yes. Any Oreo kernel *should* work - but some users reported that random reboot may occur.

    Q: I'm running a stable build. Can I dirty flash a testing build?
    A: No. You can only dirty flash a stable build over a stable build and a testing build over a testing build. So if you want to flash a testing build over a stable build, you'll have to clean flash.

    Q: I tried to install 8.1 but my phone goes into bootloop, what can I do?
    A: The ROM flashes the vendor partition, this means that you will have to reflash the stock vendor image release by Google. You can find the image on this website or inside the whole factory image found on Google developers page.

    Q: Phone app disappears after answering a call/can't close the call?
    A: Settings > Apps & notifications > Default apps and tap on phone app and then on Phone (even though it's already checked).

    Q: Sparks menu is empty?
    A: Yes. It's still in development.

    Q: How to install Magisk?
    A: Flash Magisk zip file via recovery. After that install Magisk Manager via apk file to make it show up in the app drawer.

    WE ARE NOW USING A NEW ENCRYPTION METHOD - YOU NEED TO FORMAT THE DATA PARTITION FOR THE INITIALISATION
    Please, take a little bit of time for reading the first post.

    Hey there, StatiXOS here.

    It’s been 46 days since the latest official ROM and we have decided that’s time to release a new version.

    You are probably wondering “Wow, 46 days - they probably have revolutionised everything in all these days”.
    Yes, yes and yes! We have changed the name of the ROM to reflect the current date and it’s running smoother. Great, isn't it?

    Jokes apart, the new version is up (check the first thread) and if you are interested you can check a generated changelog of what we have done in all these days.
    It contains all the changes made on our repos, including the Nexus 6P’s ones.

    Sorry if we have been missing a lot of posts here, we will try to be more active even here.

    New official is out :good:

    We have switched to DirtyUnicorns's Launcher3 (neat features over here) and it has an elevated set of permissions, CLEAN FLASH IS ADVICED if you use QuickStep as default.
    IF YOU DIRTY FLASH, LAUNCHER3 IS GOING TO CRASH.

    Workaround: download a custom launcher and set it by default, flash the ROM.

    Code:
    [B]09/11/2018:[/B]
    - November security patch and based on android-9.0.0_r16;
    - DRM contents (e.g Netflix) on L1 security fixed: videos now work on full resolution;
    - Addressed a wrong RAM configuration, switched from 2GB to 3GB ones;
    - A lot of customisations added, please check the whole set of changes [URL="https://del.dog/statixos.md"]from this file[/URL].

    Download links on the main post, as usual.
