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 »

Latest OmniROM Nightlies Bring Custom Hotwords to Your Home Screen

Untitled-1

Android has offered Google Voice Search for many, many years now. Thanks to nearly constant backend updates, its capabilities are continually expanding. And if you’re anything like I am, you use every chance you have to impress your friends by saying,  “OK Google…”

As powerful as Google Voice Search is, it’s not perfect. For example, while it has the ability to perform quite a few tasks such as opening your Camera app, the list of supported commands are controlled entirely by Google. Moreover, if you’re attempting touchless operation, you must first engage Voice Search functionality by saying “OK Google,” and then say your command of choice. N. . . READ ON »

find7

We’ve talked about the Oppo Find 7a quite a bit here on the XDA Portal ever since its unveiling, back in March of this year. In the time since, the Find 7a has received official TWRP support, a feature-packed official OTA, and even CyanogenMod 11S from the OnePlus One. During this time, we’ve also stripped the device down to its hardware innards and given it a quick review.

Now, we’re about to enter the next phase in Find 7a development, thanks to the first source-built custom ROM for the device. This comes in the form of official OmniROM alpha builds, which will eventually transition into nightlies once the device is ready. These builds come from none other than XDA Senior Recog. . .

How OmniROM Pulled Off Multi-Window

F3eRZci

Over the years, we’ve seen a few attempts at multi-window on the Android platform, with varying levels of success. We first saw Cornerstone a few years back, and it was even slated to be integrated into the popular CyanogenMod ROM, but that didn’t go so well. We then saw Samsung’s proprietary implementation, but this only worked with a few whitelisted applications. Although rooted users could modify that whitelist, this wasn’t an ideal solution for people who wanted a truly multi-purpose multi-window solution.

Paranoid Android then took a stab at this with Halo. But while that solution worked beautifully for the supported use-cases, it was a bit limited in terms of what things coul. . . READ ON »
