My first Rom thread !!

http://www.xenonhd.com/

XenonHD is a custom firmware aka ROM for various Android devices. It is based on LineageOS 16.0 with additional features, performance and battery life improvements.
The idea behind XenonHD is to give users a ROM that is "blazing fast, rock stable and buttery smooth".

Story:
I have been a user of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (910v) since it was released.
I had been watching for the opprotunity to use Cyanogenmod on my phone,
but alas , about the time a root method was found I Cyanogen closed up.

Thankfully the codebase was pulled into Lineageos
and there I watched some wonderful development in Lineage14 by several developers
including but not limited to @_mone , who started posting how-to build for the note4
Following his successful port into Oreo one of my friends @ripee started building and took over a lot of maintaining the builds.
When @mickey387 successfully ported for Pie on the note 4, we were off to the races so to speak.

Now @ripee has lots of roms ported including this one .
working with our development group on a build server with other helpful devs and coders
we have combined all information on how to build for the note 4
at github.com/triplr-dev

special thanks and appreciation to
( if i miss you please msg me )
@micke 387
@_mone and @ripee
@mobspyguy
@khalvat

thanks to @shizzle2889 for starting the xda threads for maintenance

and all the legacy note4 devs ( adding as i can go back thru my bookmarks )

and a special thanks to a HUGE help we get from @logosA :cool:
testing, testing flashing etc !! who declined this thread.
Which is dedicated to him! I nominate him for RC if that was availble to do.

Please see the next 3 reserved posts for special information on this rom !

How To Build This Rom.

1. Set up your version of Linux on your computer the way you like.
2. This is a Pie version of AOSP so all the instructions at Google, are for Ubuntu and it's relatives such as what it's derived from Debian Linux all have the same naming methods for the software libraries.
I use Fedora, based off Red hat, centos, etc. I have a guide for installing these libraries on another thread and in my personal Github.com/tripLr account

Start Here
https://source.android.com/

3. Download your tools and binaries like compilers and such
Follow these instructions from Google for Ubuntu or MacOS

https://source.android.com/setup/build/initializing

Then the next page is to download the source code

You will need git ( installed above )
You will need repo ( install directly from Google , instructions in web page below )

https://source.android.com/setup/build/initializing

4 Once you have repo command installed you are ready to download any Rom you want.
We have a good collection of roms for the note 4 we build for but in this case we will download XenonHD

So first make a folder for XenonXD
Code:
mkdir -p ~/android/XenonHD/.repo/local_manifests

This step creates all the folders we need to use, now let's download our Rom

5. Repo init.
SAVE SPACE INSTRUCTIONS HERE

If you follow exactly the Google directions and most suggestions of developers YOU WILL DOWNLOAD ALL THEIR CODE not just what you need.

So the Github source code is located here for all of XenonHD code

Github.com/TeamHorizon

What we need is located on one file called the platform_manifest

https://github.com/TeamHorizon/platform_manifest

It has the instructions for downloading the ROM

Now on your computer , goto your Rom directory

Code:
cd ~/android/XenonHD

Now copy the line from the TeamHorizon manifest, but add the control to tell the server you ONLY want to download the Pie branch, not all the others.

This step is called the repo init

The version of the command they have is

"repo init -u https://github.com/TeamHorizon/platform_manifest.git -b p"

We want
Code:
repo init --depth=1 -u [url]https://github.com/TeamHorizon/platform_manifest.git[/url] -b p

6. Sync the source code.
This downloads the lists of what needs to be downloaded for the Rom,
Let's sync that.
To save space and time use,

Code:
repo sync -c --force-sync --no-clone-bundle --no-tags

If you have a fast internet connection , go make a coffee and come back. You will be downloading about 80 gb, compared to 150 or more .

7. roomservice.xml
All the goodies for the note 4 snapdragon...
Once completed now you need the roomservice to build for the note 4 snapdragon variants.

It goes in the local_manifests folder you created above, it and all the source code from Our Github account

Github.com/triplr-dev

You should be in the build folder now so..

Code:
wget -O ~/android/XenonHD/.repo/local_manifests/roomservice.xml [url]https://raw.githubusercontent.com/triplr-dev/local_manifests/xenonhd-p/master.xml[/url]

roomservice.xml can be ANYFILENAME.xml but to make it easy we all use roomservice when compiling for multiple devices

8. Sync the goodies...
Code:
repo sync -c --force-sync --no-clone-bundle --no-tags

this step wont take long..

9. Setup the environmentt OR in other words, tell the compilers where everything is.
Make sure your in your rom folder
~/android/XenonHD
and run this command
Code:
. source/envsetup.sh

what this means is tell your shell, in our case, bash,
Hey bash, there is the file located in ~/android/XenonHD/source called envsetup.sh , would you be so kind and run it so i can build my rom ? Pretty please, like right now when i press the enter key ?

You will see a list of what the script accomplishes.

Now its time to

10. Build your rom !

Hey , guess what you downloaded code for 3 devices.
Pick the one you want

Code:
# build trlte
breakfast trlte 
brunch trlte 
# build tblte
breakfast tblte 
brunch tblte  
# build trlteduos
breakfast trlteduos 
brunch trlteduos

wait a bit...... wait some more...,

now browse to your output folder , use a usb cable to download to your phone, or upload to the cloud and share to the world ...

I gave this a good few days testing, and for me on my 910G it was just too sim deathy for me, as in i had higher than usual sim death and my usual automate script failed to recover from sim death far more often...

Currently back on AICP
Actually I had the same issue before one month , I flashed 4 different pie roms with sim death all of them , and finally I figured out the main problem I did push the sim card till the end , I just move it little out and the signal was stable again like nothing , try it maybe it works with you :cowboy:
I'm running last build of this rom on my N910F and signal is full always
This is the most debloated pie rom till now and battery life is nice for me

Ok, one thing i have to have that no other rom has is multitasking phone.

Normaly when i answer a call to my ear, the display locks black and wont wake / unlock
then i have to press buttons to try and activate the screen so i can swipe to return to the call, but half the time it locks black screen again.

I have had this sissue for a loooong time,

This rom has at least 3 options to wake .
Double tap to wake
press home to wake
press power to wake.

So much nicer than pulling the battery becsuse you cant end the call of a telemarketer

I see the navbar setting, havent tried it yet on my own daily driver.
Please check and see if it's a system app in titanium backup , in your working copy, save it , and try to restore it in a non working copy,

If so I'll check the build log for errors, and send a note up to team horizon

Tons of settings for Bluetooth, codecs and bitrates

There is a section all in one place for the XenonHD settings.

Lots of cool stuff.

So there is also a setting for swipe once quick access to settings . set for left or right pull down.

Also swipe the status bar setting for brightness.

Pretty slick

Clean installed 08-20 with the latest GAPPS and got bootloop. I tried flashing with no GAPPS but still didn't work.

I am so excited to try this ROM. Thank you so much for the hardwork! :good:

    If someone wants to try the newest XenonHD: spen palm rejection, casting, good mic level for recording, and sec patch Feb/5. Compiled with high optimization level, though I don't detect any improvement b/c of that...
    https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArVFGQecbqr6hG1btx-L4P3ZXmhi?e=gm4nX0
    and non-mega link !

    Welcome @ghostwheel
    6
    I'm also interested in seeing it. To me, casting is a very important feature in any ROM, since I use it so often.


    PS: Last week, I had a customer call me about a dead TV. Now I don't work or fix TV's, I'm a computer/networking tech. However this is a very nice customer, so I offered to help them out. I brought along my Note 4 to test the remote to see if that was why it wouldn't turn on. It wasn't, but it was helpful to have just in case. It's worked in the past. I've used my Note 4 to control TV's when the remote has been lost on several occasions. Just for your information... the TV was dead due to a power module. It was replaced for little over $300 and the expensive Sony TV is working beautifully again (which oddly enough was running Android!)

    I use TV KILL all the time :D (don't tell anyone. )

    OK, I fixed some of the audio cast in XenonHD. The main problem is that it only casts the sound that is made by the phone, which means you hear both. Not even simultaneously. First phone, then cast. And if you silence phone, you silence cast. Annoying. But maybe one of them is synced with the video.

    This build also has a few other differences from my previous one. I didn't compile as optimized, I wanted to see if it fixes some problems. So it might be a bit slower. (it is as optimized as triplr's build, though, or supposed to be)
    And I pulled some more bugfixes from the xenonhd tree. Not that you'd notice, but it makes your heart glow knowing that your phone had 3 bugs less.

    NOTE: I just noticed that all my builds have a gps problem. I'm debugging it.

    XenonHD with working palm rejection

    I compiled XenonHD with working palm rejection. This is the first time I compiled any ROM. I just followed the instructions in post #2 in this thread.
    I hope I didn't make any big mistakes!
    If you'd like to test it, you can download it here: trlte on mega.nz.
    Android Security patch level is Jan 5, 2020, kernel linux version 3.10.108.
