About xXx NoLimits


xXx NoLimits is a Magisk Module based ROM to enhance OnePlus 5/5T ROMs



xXx NoLimits is not a full Rom anymore as it was available until version 12.1, but it's a Magisk Module which works exactly like all my previous Roms except that it does not include any OOS Rom components like Firmware, System, Vendor partitions, the Kernel or Magisk. Therefore the size went down to about 250MB+. In combination with the OOS stock Rom it still provides you with all options you might have used already with my previous Rom versions. (Old full Rom versions are end of life but can still be found in the 2nd post)

As a Magisk Module running on top of the OOS stock rom, xXx NoLimits works 100% Systemless and provide you with plenty of options to be selectively installed with an aroma installer. This way you get most of the typical things you usually have to collect and install one by one all out of the box.



Advantages over my previous Full Rom concept
- Supports Stable & Open Beta OOS Roms on the OP5/5T
- Works independent of the current OOS Rom version
- Still working after OOS version upgrade
- Support OOS Stock Rom Updates (You can use the update function in setting)
- When a new OOS Rom Update is available, just run the OOS update, flash Magisk and xXx NoLimits again and everything is working like before.
- Complete Systemless - Don't touches system or vendor partition at all
- Debloating without touching the system partition.
- You can change debloat options and simply flash xXx NoLimits again without the need to install the OOS stock rom again.
- smaller and faster download



Must Requirements
- OOS Stock Rom with basic android setup in place
- A working Magisk in place
- Flashing in TWRP only! (no inside Magisk flash support)

My focus with this Rom enhancement is to provide a smooth and snappy user experience with a decent battery life but also have some additional functions, tweaks and mods available which, for my taste, are missing in the stock OOS Rom.

This is not a commercial project but my hobby. I developed this for my daily driver device and I decided to share it with you.

xXx System Tweaks

I added several tweaks on different levels to make the rom faster and snappy.
These tweaks also improve multitasking and maintain the system to be constantly fast.
6/8 GB RAM can (and should) hold a lot apps and services in the background. If you like apps to popup in virtual no time I recommend you to not close them when you change to another app but just put them to the background. Also, when speed is more important to you than window animations you can reduce the 3 Animation scale values in the developer options and select the AKT Burnout Kernel Profile.
xXx Tweaks includes There are also several more features under the hood like:
WiFi channel bonding for the 2.4GHz frequency
ART Optimization
Detaching of modded apps
Disable Google Play Wakelocks for better battery life
LMK Tweaks to use all RAM down to about 700MB left for best multitasking
…and several more


Debloating
The rom provides you with the full range off not debloated at all (like OOS stock) to max debloated.
I also included a flash option to select Extreme Debloating. This will debloat the rom down close to a core Android level. You need to enable this option to take advantage of it.
The advantage of debloating is to gain even more speed and battery saving as less unused apps and services are running or even more free RAM to hold your favorite apps in background.
The downside is that you might miss certain apps or functionality but definitely nothing what will make your android unstable. All Google Apps are all available via Play Store as well.

Sound Enhancement
xXx NoLimits includes ViPER4AndroidFX by default unless you disable it in the flash options. I also included my favorite sound profile which you will love for sure as well. Otherwise select the full profile package as well.


Aroma based Installer
A folder called xXx will be create on your sdcard which will store a prop file called xXx.NoLimits.aroma.profile which stores all your setting made during your last xXx NoLimits ROM flash. Next time you flash the same or new version of the Rom you will be presented with the same selections again.
Another intelligence is that even I add new options, or reorder items, or even move items to other/new menus in future rom versions, it will still remember your previous selections.
Or choose the Fastlane mode which skips all selection screens and flash the Rom based on either default settings or your personal settings from your last selection session.
The first Aroma screen is already the Main Menu where you can select to walk through all available options.
Aroma Installer Color Codes
Blue = Indicates that this will open an additional screen with options
Red = Gives you a heads up to think twice if you want to change the option
Orange = Standard selection theme color

Latest xXx NoLimits Download
xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept.

Latest xXx NoLimits version is still working on this device and can be downloaded here in my OP8pro thread

Why is there no dedicated xXx NoLimits version for this device?

xXx NoLimits follow an unified "one installer fits all" concept and even I currently own the OP8pro only, I still take care that NoLimits remains compatible with older OnePlus devices.

Even though, this is a hobby project and I try to keep my time investments low. Therefore, my main efforts are focused on my daily driver which is the OP8pro.

I still keep my xda thread open for older devices, so that users can still help each other in the respective NoLimits thread.

good to see you here as well :) What do mean with "3.5.0 stock"? I suppose you mean 4.5.0 right? But yes, if you are currently on OP5 stock you can easily dirty flash as this is the same OOS rom base.

regarding Arise, this rom, yes the latest Arise magnum opus us included.

Regarding kernels support. It's easy to use custom kernels anyway as they can be flashed anytime after the rom anyway and you don't have to wait for a new rom when new kernel version will be available. Therefore not sure yet if I will include custom kernels but I will always take care that the rom will support custom kernels.

Any known issues with arise? It's driver status is "abnormal" and also prompts to update the driver upon launch, which subsequently fails.
