MOVING NEXUS AND PIXEL DEVICES TO LINEAGEOS BASE
FEBRUARY 7, 2017
AARON WEIS

Oh no what have we done?!

For the past few months Team-OctOS has been maintaing two seperate Nougat code bases. An AOSP based branch for the Nexus/Pixel devices and a LineageOS based branch to support all of the other devices. This also means that team has been split working on two seperate projects. In order to get the team back to being a team we’ve made the tough decision to discontinue the AOSP branch. All current officially supported devices will still be supported using the LineageOS base OctOS.

Expect to see weekly builds for the below devices on the Oct-N Weekly (LineageOS base) download page begining Feb 10th.

Nexus 5 (hammerhead)
Nexus 5x (bullhead)
Nexus 6 (shamu)
Nexus 6p (angler)
Pixel (sailfish)
Pixel XL (marlin)

*You will need to wipe data. No dirty flashing when switching to the new base

We will be hard at work as a whole team again developing OCT-N from one common branch.​

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this Android 7 (Nougat)?
A: Yes, this is Android 7.1.2

Q: What code is Oct-N based on?
A: This version of Oct-N is based on LineageOS 14.1

Q: Why isn't there XYZ feature?
A: Shoot us a Suggestion if you want to see something added. While we are not going to promise to implement, we will always look into it

Q: But all the others have..
A: ROM developers, build something they want to use. The ROM developer that includes something they won't run implies less than 100% effort to ensure it does work. As a team, we have similar goals and objectives. If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don't include (or don't want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-N.

Q: What about root?
A: Root is removed by default (user will be able to flash which ever root zip they want)

Bugs:
Bugs happen. Our testers are very good at breaking things, but no where near as good as the rest of the Android public. In order to investigate and fix issues, we need the help of the users who are going to report them. The Android OS has many nifty features to help us in this, but only if we can engage the user to assist us.

Logs, Logcat, and the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB)
Like any other OS, Android has multiple log files that are generated and record the goings-on of the system. As a user, you have two basic ways to view and pull these to send to us. Without the information in the logfiles, there simply is not a whole lot of information to go on.

Log file APKs
Team OctOs recommends SysLog from the Android Market. This application will allow you to selectively pick any (or all) of the system logs, compress them into a .ZIP file, and allow you to save, email, move to your Copy/DropBox/Cloud Storage account, etc.

ADB Logcat
The Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) is a powerful tool available from Google as part of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Used for many things, being able to selectively see, in real-time, what your device is doing cannot be downplayed. While there is more setup involved, if you are doing consistent ROM flashing, you really should invest the time to get setup properly to do it.

The foundation of the Android OS is the fact that is it open-source. We have all code we use internally in the creation of Oct-N available on our GitHub repositories.

Unless otherwise specified, all Oct-N builds kernel souce can be found on github at Team-OctOS.

Has anyone else noticed extremely slow WiFi speeds on this ROM? I averaged 7+MB/s on my AC on Dirty Unicorns, but with this ROM I was lucky to see over 500KB/s. Attempting to sync music from Google Play Music was impossible.

Camera Quality?

With AOSP roms aren't we losing the perks of the camera based software optimization? That is the main reason I've held off from flashing a non original pixel based rom. Feedback please!

Thanks!
