First build is now on the mirrors. Expect everything to be broken, be thankful for anything that works. OTA updater app is not included as backend needs some work to support multiple versions thus I'll probably kick myself to finally finish the rewrite of the backend code. There's no schedule for these nightlies yet as I haven't really had time to think how I'll juggle 3 different versions so they don't start compiling at the same time. New builds will come as DOGE builds did for the previous version meaning whenever I feel like making one until things settle down a bit and build schedule is decided.

Bugzilla has 12.1 specific product now so you can use that for bug reports.

after installing the ROM I have a message saying I have not enough space on the system (should get at least 250 mb free)
However I have been able to flash the Gapps smoothly
After flashing Gapps, the message persists and I can not install anything (neither from the playstore or from an apk)

On the other hand, everything seems to work (wifi,sound,camera,...)

i did dirty flash and get youtube error, and after i removed it any google error (google service i think) so this is not good. but maybe after any update it will be good...? after that i did clean flash, and get error as writed before, and not working keyboard.so I'm back.

With major version upgrades dirty flashing is just anybody's guess whether it will work. At least upgrade your gapps while you are at it and you may have more luck with it.

Same here on an Inspire 4G. Very slow install, even considering ART. Reboots take about 5 minutes.

I think the problem is with my Inspire 4g and not the ROM. While trying Advanced wipe, I get:
E:Block device not present, cannot wipe SD-ext.
E:Unable to wipe /sd-ext.

I've made a pigs ear of the install somewhere along the line. Yawn.

Full wipe every flash, don't update. This is an early beta release and there are likely to be big changes which might break things under the hood.

I think a lot of users are starting to get confused between the CM12 and CM12.1 releases.

Hello

indeed I am confused too. Is the 12 nightlies project abandoned/replaced by 12.1 ?

I am using a CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies rom . Anyone can explain me what's better in CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightlies ?
As I can see the Kernel is the same , what's new in 12.1 compared with 12 ? Any valid reason to move from 12 to 12.1 ?

Thank you!

aand ...BTW THANKS for the continuos work to leave alive HTC Desire HD !!!

sd-ext is not present unless you've partitioned sdcard, so don't worry if you get only that error message ;)

Well, probably not abandoned but focus will shift to 12.1. I haven't made any decisions yet but it's likely 12 will move to weekly schedule or something similar.

I am using a CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies rom . Anyone can explain me what's better in CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightlies ?
As I can see the Kernel is the same , what's new in 12.1 compared with 12 ? Any valid reason to move from 12 to 12.1 ?
What's better? At the moment probably nothing as things are just starting to come together and many things are still shoddy at best. There are not even official nightlies out yet.

You can check the full 5.0.2 -> 5.1.0 changelog here. There are some 14 000 changes.

    aceopt

    "aceopt" builds seem to be working decently for the things I wanted to test them before releasing them with installation instructions so here we go.

    Disclaimer: You will lose everything on your sdcard if you follow these instructions so take appropriate steps to secure your data before continuing. Also this will be a "clean flash" from the start due to different partition layout.

    Prerequisites:
    • TWRP 2.8.7.0 for aceopt by @jrior001
    • aceopt build of your choosing
    • Gapps and addons if you want them. IIRC, there was around 400-500MB space left on new /system partition after flashing base gapps package so there's a bit more room for addons.
    • If you have already partitioned your sdcard you may want to repartition it to have only single partition because you won't benefit from having separate sd-ext partition with this variant build. I won't write anything about this as I expect you can reverse what you have done yourself.

    Installation instructions:
    1. Flash TWRP-aceopt-2.8.7.0-unofficial.img in fastboot or your current TWRP (Install > Images > etc.)
    2. Reboot to recovery even if you are already in TWRP. You need to reboot to be in newly flashed aceopt TWRP.
    3. Wipe cache and system under Advanced wipe.
    4. Convert your sdcard to either EXT4 or F2FS under Advanced wipe by choosing data partition > Repair or Change File System > Change File System > EXT4 or F2FS.
    5. (Optional) If you had your old /data partition formatted as F2FS you also need to convert it to EXT4 meaning converting system partition in the aceopt recovery.
    6. At this point your sdcard is completely empty so you will need to move the ROM zip and any additional zips into sdcard or use adb sideload.
    7. Install cm-12.1-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-aceopt.zip and gapps.
    8. Reboot

    Notes:
    • This is no miracle cure to old device. It will mainly provide more storage space for user apps. Nevertheless, with fast sdcard this is likely as fast as this device will get due to pre-optimization involved and also due to usage of default ART dex2aot filter which is set to interpret-only in regular ace builds to save space which means most of the speed improvements that ART brought are gone.
    • Apart from pre-optimization, dex2aot filters and different partition layout these builds are exactly the same as regular builds.
    • Update flashes work as usual. If you want to perform clean flash afterwards just do factory reset and manually format system. DO NOT manually format data under any circumstances unless you want to lose everything on emulated sdcard too. You can think of formatting data in aceopt recovery is the same as formatting your sdcard in regular ace recovery. I have accidentally completely emptied my Nexus 5 by doing this so many times it's not even funny anymore.
    • If you want to switch back to regular ace builds later on you will need to format your sdcard again to have meaningful directory structure in it, or manually fix it.
    • Make sure you regularly backup your sdcard as a whole to protect yourself against sdcard hardware failure which will technically make all your user app data and sdcard data to disappear. I use Win32DiskImager to backup my Raspberry Pi sdcard and it should be ok for this purpose too on Windows. You can find other ways on other OSs from your favorite search engine.
    • Old /data is now /system
    • Old /sdcard is now both /data and /data/media (emulated sdcard).
    • Old /cache is still /cache
    • I might have forgotten something from this guide post. I'll update it if necessary.

    Busy, busy, busy...

    This little fellow joined me today on my journey to maximum awesomeness. I'll be rather busy keeping him fed, active and safe for a while thus my time here will be more limited while he's figuring out the big world. For those interested, he's a Finnish Lapphund and just 7 weeks old. :)

    It seems that I will be also moving in a month to more peaceful place at the countryside leaving the city behind. For some reason I always seem to get multiple big life changes happening to me at once. Anyways, things will be quite hectic for me at least during June.

    I'm not abandoning anything though. Things will just slow down a bit and I thought it's polite to give a heads-up so everybody knows what to expect from the near future. Nothing prevents everyone else here to rock on helping each other to figure things out in the meanwhile. :good:

    I've been tinkering with something interesting for our low storage space issue to take my mind of WebView crash for a while since solving that issue became quite unproductive use of my time. Essentially I first changed the OS use data partition as system partition and then sd-ext partition as data partition but it felt somewhat clumsy to use since sd-ext is fixed in size.

    Then I decided to try if it was possible to convert the OS to think we are running emulated sdcard device with only internal storage available. This practically meant reformatting sdcard as EXT4 (or F2FS) and mounting it as /data and making some changes to convert sdcard to be emulated one. In a nutshell, this gives you shared storage space for user apps and sdcard (just like internal storage only devices).

    With the 8GB class 4 card that came with my device: http://i.imgur.com/Mvcvm0V.png

    This setup allowed the system to be pre-optimized and by using PIC pre-optimization system boots up without optimizing or moving any dex files to anywhere (excluding gapps) which means first boot is "quite" fast.

    This will require some changes to recovery to be used properly so I've been working with jrior001 to likely release separate TWRP build for this purpose. These builds will be built under different device variant called "aceopt" because this will require some level of knowledge from users to comprehend what's happening and not to break anything so I don't really want to force this change on everyone. Since this isn't 100% ready to go yet there can still pop up unexpected issues but hopefully nothing too difficult to solve but FYI this can still hit the wall. Having full sdcard available as space available for you to use seamlessly would be very nice though. Keep your fingers crossed for us. :p
