UnORoms Project​

UnOfficial Rom Support Project​

-= Introduction =-​

We all love our phones and want the best out of them, at the same time we all are different and like different features for our phones. We see many new phones receiving official support for different roms and then we wish if we could get that rom on my phone.

UnORoms Project is an effort in that direction. The aim of this project is to provide Unofficial Support for different roms for our phone.
The definition of word "Unofficial Support" here is the ability to use rom on our phone for daily use like we do for CyanogenMod roms.

We all agree that our phone is a never dying phone with so much capability and this capability is what we have to harness.

-= Aims =-​

- Multiple Roms Support ( CarbonRom, SlimRom, IllusionRom, OmniRom ... and more ) depending on feasibility and developer availability.
- Automated regular builds ( nightly, bi-weekly, weekly ) depending on build server availability.
- Verified Code using Gerrit to minimize bugs
- Update Notification out-of-box using Rom update notifier or update checker app
- Self hosted rom downloads
- One Git Repo for all supporting code
- Jira or similar tool for reporting bugs.

-= Current Status =-​

- Succesful CarbonRom, SlimRom, OmniRom
- Nightlies Build is setup
- Basic download server is up
- Git Organization is setup

-= Current Roms =-​

CarbonRom
SlimRom
OmniRom
AOKP
IllusionRom : Base is still very basic.

Need to create threads for roms when they reach a good stage.

I have asked couple of devs and they are giving it a thought.
If you are interested to join pm me and let me know how can you help the project.

-= Supporters =-​

Please thank our supporters who are supporting this project.

@CoreWolf : Gave us build server




-= Resources =-​

-= Request =-​


The current nightlies server is non other than my laptop which is working day (for development) and night (for nightlies). It is getting low on space day by day with every new rom that I am trying. Currently nightlies are built in an external drive connected with USB3.
If you really think this project is a good effort, please consider funding towards a good build server that I could use for nightlies and towards the cost for maintaining the download servers. I do not want to put ads for supporting this project if you guys will chip in a bit.
Let me know if you have any other suggestions for supporting this project.

Added : Downloads link but don't expect much at this moment.

Also, I need ideas how to fund the servers. I am not talking about any donations but other ideas.

Good news guys

@bilal_liberty has agreed to be on the project.

There's so much community spirit around here lately! This collaboration of developers is so refreshing to see, haven't seen anything quite like it before on these forums :) looking forward to seeing what you guys bring us.

Looks like the death of the HTC Sensation is a long, long way off yet!

Sounds like an awesome project. I'd like to help, but I don't have any experience in building roms or something, but I'd like to learn, if someone could help me a bit.

    Guys,

    Its so long i have posted something good. Today is a good day.
    Flemmard was able to make things work with msm8960 based 3.4 drivers on our Sensation.
    The best part is that it is having 3.4 Camera drivers and things are working well.

    Moving forward i will move all UnoRoms to use Flemmard device trees.
    Hopefully all the camera / non-booting issue will be fixed with this one.

    Thanks for your patience for the roms that has bugs and are not fixed. I will fix them one after another now.

    Guys,

    I am not having time these days and I dont see that i will have time in near future.
    Yes, that true what you think the next line would be,
    I am giving up Android rom development for now and will stop supporting the download server from next month.

    That means UnoRoms download and build server will not be available from next month.
    If anyone wants to continue i can point him to the scripts i use for building and generating the changelogs.

    It was very nice working for a device which is still capable, i hope i get time in future to fix remaining little issues.

    Ciao
