I put it here due to that I haven't permission to post in dev board or create a DEVDB Project.

Developing my own rom just for learning and fun at first. It is almost based on AOSP code and taking many theory and component form letama. But now letama has stopped his rom development, and no other AOSP based rom here. So I'm preparing to share my build.

Can only supply rom under loop of letama's boot manager now.

If anyone are interested in trying it?

Hey.
I'm not really interested in your build, but rather in your sources.
Could you please upload them on github or something like that?
I can help you to fix your issues way easier that way, at least Bluetooth, NFC and SELinux should be easy.

You can also hit me up on hangouts, my email is [email protected], I used to chat with Letama before he gave away his Xperia S :) .

I can't post link outside xda until my post > 10. Would you please help me to post out the link of the rom?

for 1080 video playback , I've tested some 1080p and 1080i h.264 video in mp4 container. What format you used?
for some lag when pull down the notifications bar,I think it is normal because our cpu is outdate and not so powerful.
Subway surfers sure working, I have test it.

Thumbs up for picking up abandoned dev project and bringing it back to life.

Please make sure you share your sources (cool to hear that @RaymanFX is willing to help). Fully working AOSP and OpenSEMC is what this phone really needs.

Good luck with development.

I can't see it. Only links to kernel and system for boot manager and github link ??? I would like to try this build but I can't make one now.

Sorry only for Boot Manager loop now. See description of Install, need Boot Manager to be installed first. You can Install stock or other under native and my rom under loop, there are many rom for Boot Manager in its thread.

I'm gonna wait for a "normal" version, I really don't wanna mess up with boot manager.

don't have many time to build and test now, maybe this weekend. sorry for that.

PS. Why not use boot manager? I always install stock rom in native and test rom in loop, so if there are any error found on test rom I can switch back to stock rom when I'm outside and can't flash the rom immediately. I think it is safe that won't miss any call or something I must use my phone to do. Anyway it is your choice.

    AOSP 4.3.3 + TWRP + Superuser

    I will post a custom build version of AOSP based on billchens sources here.

    It includes TWRP and Superuser embedded into settings.
    It´s a normal otapackage .zip file and DOES NOT require the bootmanager.
    You can simply flash it like every other rom.
    I will release a customized version in the future (will probably open a new thread to keep this one clean).

    So here it is:

    Thanks to:
    billchen1977 for the sources, without his work this wouldn´t be possible
    deedwar for his help with the kernel, superuser etc...
    RaymanFX for some fixes for our device
