OmniROM Finally Lands on the Sony Z Ultra GPe

OmniROM on Xperia Z Ultra

We have several flavors of AOSP-based Android builds here on XDA-Developers, and each one of them brings something new to the table. It could be the originality of CyanogenMod that floats your boat, or maybe some of the advanced control features in Paranoid Android. Whatever your motivation to sail through the sea of custom ROMs on XDA, there is one thing that we are certain of, and that is that your ORD always wants more. But wanting more can sometimes make you feel a little like little Oliver Twist asking for more gruel at the orphanage–particularly if your device is not exactly the center of the developers’ universe. This is the case for Sony’s phablet, the Sony Xperia Ultra GPe (Google . . . READ ON »

One of the most interesting features of OmniROM is OpenDelta. This innovative OTA system created by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire uses open delta technology to bring updates in an easy, bandwidth-friendly way. In short, OpenDelta downloads only files that were updated since the last downloaded nightly.

If you thought that OpenDelta was a feature only available in OmniROM, you were right. But it’s an open-source project, so porting it to work with other ROMs is absolutely possible. If you ever wondered how to add it to your ROM, XDA Senior Member werty100 made a pictorial guide with a complete explanation of OpenDelta usage.

Android 4.4.3-Based OmniROM Unofficial Build for the OnePlus One

OnePlus One

Quite often when any new phone is released, we at XDA wonder if  and when we’ll be able to install a custom ROM. But with the OnePlus One  delivering CyanogenMod 11s out of the box, it was more than likely this device would have custom firmwares available quickly. Today, we are seeing just that. Not long after the first devices hit their buyers’ doorsteps, an early unofficial build of OmniROM was released.

Keen observers will be quick to note that the device shipped with Android 4.4.2. However, this unofficial build includes the Android 4.4.3, which released by Google earlier this week and merged into OmniROM just two days ago.

Like most early builds, not everything works absolutely p. . . READ ON »

Today’s OmniROM Nightlies Now Based on Android 4.4.3

Capture

After Android 4.4.3 was released and its source code uploaded to the AOSP, it was only a matter of time before all of its tasty commits would find their way into a large-scale, source-built custom ROM. In most cases and with most multi-device projects, this process takes a considerable amount of time. But now just three days since Android 4.4.3’s initial release, one such project has merged 4.4.3 into its nightlies.

Starting with builds dated 2014-06-05 (#253) onwards, Android 4.4.3 is now integrated into OmniROM. This comes courtesy of XDA Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD who made the merge yesterday morning. As of the writing of this article, the builds are still curren. . . READ ON »
