Introduction
Vanilla is a ROM designed to be as close as possible to AOSP while having theming capabilities with Substratum. If you don't want to use Substratum, you don't have to as it's an optional install from the Play Store. The ROM does not come with root as it isn't even needed for Substratum anymore.


Features
It is much easier for us to maintain our features list over on Github



Changelog
Vanilla's changelog is maintained on Github as it saves us time



Installation

Clean flash (needed when coming from another ROM):
  1. Download latest build with md5sum (TWRP will automatically verify)
  2. Download GApps
  3. Boot TWRP
  4. Wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik cache
  5. Flash Vanilla
  6. Flash GApps
  7. Flash other zips
  8. Reboot

Dirty flash (when already on Vanilla):
  1. Download latest build with md5sum (TWRP will automatically verify)
  2. Boot TWRP
  3. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
  4. Flash Vanilla
  5. Flash other zips
  6. Reboot


Frequently Asked Questions

1.1 Q: What's the difference between the two versions?
1.1 A: Pixel version has the blue accents system wide with round icons, the non-Pixel version is the normal AOSP look.

1.2 Q: Why doesn't the Pixel version have the nav bar?
1.2 A: In order to easily do two builds, the nav bar has to be overlayed in our custom vendor, which is not working at the moment. Download Substratum and install the nav bar overlay of PixelUI.

1.3 Q: How do I convert to F2FS?
1.3 A: This will involve formatting your data, backup before hand! I'd also recommend doing this after installing the ROM but before setting it up fully. WE DO NOT SUPPORT ANY PART OF THIS PROCESS (TWRP, WIPING, ETC). YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN IF YOU DO THIS.
  1. Download my custom TWRP (attached to this thread, md5 is 72e652a7a782481260f57541a286604e):
  2. Flash it with either fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery <path_to_img_file>
    or within your current TWRP (Install > Select Image > Recovery)
  3. Select Wipe > Advanced Wipe
  4. Select data and hit "Partition options"
  5. Select "Change filesystem"
  6. Select "F2FS"
  7. Slide to confirm
  8. Back out and do the same thing for cache
  9. Boot up into Android

1.4 Q: Can you add ABC feature from XYZ ROM??
1.4 A: If you can tell us where you saw the feature, we can consider adding it but this ROM is supposed to be close to stock; it will not have a lot of the bells and whistles that others will have.

1.5 Q: What is the included kernel? Can I change kernels?
1.5 A: The kernel is stock aside from the following things:
  • Linux versions 3.10.41-3.10.105
  • Full F2FS support
  • sdcardfs from kernel/common's android-3.10 branch
  • Compiled with gcc 6.3.1
I don't mind expanding on this list a little bit but I will not be adding a ton of kernel features. I also do not provide support for third party kernels, as soon as you flash one, you are on your own.

1.6 Q: Can I flash Open GApps with this?
1.6 A: Sure but we will not be providing support if something goes wrong.

1.7 Q: Do I need to flash GApps between builds?
1.7 A: You only need to flash GApps if you are doing a clean flash..

1.8 Q: Can I build Vanilla myself from source?
1.8 A: Go for it :) We won't stop you. We just ask that you don't publicly release anything. If you want a device supported, you are welcome to be one of our maintainers; just talk to WelcomeToTheSkye first. Feel free to contribute to the project :) Just know if you build Vanilla on your own, you will not receive support because if you are building it yourself you should be able to fix the issues yourself :p

Do we still have the stock nav bar tuner? Or was that ditched when you dropped systemui tuner? Reason I ask, is because I much prefer the ability to shift all my keys around vs smartbar/fling, etc. Didn't see it explicitly mentioned in the changelog

Edit: Nevermind, lol. Checked the GitHub. I see stock tuner is still there. Joyful! I'll definitely be giving this a go!!

Yeah system UI tuner is inside Vanilla Tweaks like every other feature from system UI

Who knows the diffence between "Vanilla_shamu-Public-Ascent-1.11-Pixel.zip" and " Vanilla_shamu-Public-Ascent-1.11.zip"?
The pixel edition has round icons and pixel blue while the normal one does not however this is in the op :)

    Vanilla Freedom 6.12
    This will be the final Vanilla nougat build.
    Cross your fingers and we shall see what happens when Android O releases if shamu will get Vanilla love or not.
    I'm planning to upgrade to a Pixel XL 2 when they're out for sale.
    I will be keeping the Nexus 6 as a backup device and something to toy around with.
    Don't forget to give @WelcomeToTheSkye and @TheFlash some huge thanks for putting her time into Vanilla source and such a great rom.

    Enjoy!!!
