Frequently Asked Questions

It won't boot OMFG!!!
Try this if you're having trouble booting.

I wanna use OpenGAPPS or some obscure Google Apps. How do i?
You don't. Oreo has more security in /system/priv-app and adding apks that don't come with the zip don't get installed. It may not always be like that, but for now, it is what it is y0

You have too many gapps in your crappy ROM!
I try to provide the least amount possible for the setup I like. If you want to know what comes with the ROM browse my repo and look in app and priv-app

I flashed the ROM, then Google Apps and then vendor. Why does it bootloop? Is that the right order?
Please read the flashing instructions. Benzo comes with everything you need including the vendor image.

I'll add more as time goes on and the same questions keep getting asked

Hey this is great! Thank you. Since this comes with a pre-built vendor image, does it have the December security update? And also what size gapps are included? And does root need to be flashed, and if so, does it need to be either magisk or [email protected] Sorry if I overlooked this in op...

December security update? There's only one release of 8.1 and it's December. It has all the security updates as the official builds. There is no size of gapps included, it has the gapps from the stock ROM minus a few like Chrome. Here is my gapps repo so you can see what apps it has. As for root it doesn't need to be flashed unless you want it.

Reason I asked about security update is awhile back there was a hacked vendor that worked for flashing Oreo rom, but it was like a 7.1.2 modified vendor to get it to boot on the pixel. Was just curious since vendor is included. Thanks for your fast response.

Benzo Rom 8.1.0 20171226-0625 - First Build

With this first build please don't report any problems unless they are big problems. This build also has rootless OMS working in it with font support. You will probably have to reboot once after the initial flashing before OMS will work right. No need to flash anything except the zip as it comes with Google Apps and a prebuilt vendor image.

Download: Benzo Rom 20171226-0625

Note: I had to be on TWRP 3.2.0 to be able to flash. I get an error on 3.2.1. So most likely you'll have to be on it too.
I flashed on slot a and got a reboot to Google logo twice then straight to twrp am I doing something wrong? Relfashed now stuck at Google screen

how are you guys going back to 3.2.0 TWRP? when i flash the zip i can't decrypt data anymore (only works on 3.2.1).

EDIT: nevermind, you can just remove the PIN and it won't auto decrypt

TWRP 3.2.0 WONT decrypt, you gotta remove password everytime and you also have to fastboot boot 3.2.0 everytime it seems. Also tried rooting with Magisk 14.6, no luck, so i rooted with SuperSu without issue.

---------- Post added at 05:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:29 PM ----------

For those having problems getting it to boot, i did the following :

1)I started with a fresh flash of Official 8.1.0.
2)Fastboot flash boot --slot all boot.img (8.1.0 boot.img)
3)Fastboot boot twrp320.img
4)make sure your on slot A
5)flash twrp 3.2.0 via TWRP
6)Flash Benzo Rom
7)Flash twrp 3.2.0 again
8)Reboot System
I tried Magisk 14.6 to root and it through an error so i rooted with SuperSU.

Alos, i couldnt boot in recovery from Bootloader at all, whatsoever. Every time i wanna go into TWRP, i need to fastboot boot it, not sure why, i am reflashing after flashing Benzo ROM.

Good Luck!

And again, the only problem i found is the extended power menu wont boot into Recovery, which could have something to do with what i mentioned above, but that has nothing to do with NOT being able to boot into Bootloader...

If I power device off and boot into boot loader I can boot into recovery thru that but I can not get device to root yes I'm in slot a I flash SuperSU but it doesn't detect on reboot

---------- Post added at 08:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:41 PM ----------

Working fine now was able to gain root access with correct version of SuperSU but cannot update binaries for some reason keep getting google is stopping for some reason. For power menu turn phone off and boot into bootloader using hardware buttons then boot into twrp also u can use root essentials thanks dev ROM is awesome otherwise

    For people having trouble booting custom roms please read:

    Get a copy of the stock boot.img, twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img, twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip and the Benzo Rom zip.

    1. Boot into bootloader
    2. run: fastboot --slot all erase boot
    3. run: fastboot --slot all format system
    4. run: fastboot --slot all format vendor

    Go to where you extracted the stock boot image
    5. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot boot.img
    6. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img
    7. run: fastboot --set-active=a
    8. run: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    9. Then select recovery from the bootloader menu
    10. Go to wipe. Move the slider to factory reset which will wipe data, but not internal storage.
    11. Install benzorom-8.1.0-date-version-marlin.zip and twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip
    12. Reboot

    If you want to install root after boot back into recovery by rebooting and holding volume down after you hit reboot then selecting recovery from bootloader. That will take you into TWRP on slot b which is where you want to install Magisk from. I don't use SuperSU anymore so Magisk is all I know that works.

    You can get the twrp .img and .zip from their site right here.

    Note: If you decide to dirty flash and Settings ends up looking messed up. Delete /system/priv-app/Settings/Settings.apk then reflash. Not sure why it's happening to some people. Just remember to never report problems if you didn't get them on a clean flash. thanks.
