Oct-N Weekly Builds AOSP base

Nexus and Pixel Devices are moving to OCT-N using LineageOS as a base.

Starting Feb 10th weekly builds for Nexus and Pixel devices will be found on the Oct-N Weekly (LineageOS base) page.

Team Oct-OS has been hard at work adding our special touch to the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat. (Builds from 12/2 are 7.1 and  prior builds are android 7.0) We are very pleased to give you a taste of out AOSP based Oct-N Android firmware for selected Nexus devices.

Disclaimer: OctOs is a WIP. It has been evaluated as being stable, and is suitable for daily use in most cases. While it may be considered stable, there may be unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.

Team OctOS presents Oct-N.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is this Android 7 (Nougat)?
A: Yes, this is Android 7.1.1

Q: What code is Oct-N based on?
A: Oct-N thus far is based on AOSP 7.1.1

Q: Why isn’t there XYZ feature?
A: Shoot us a Suggestion if you want to see something added. While we are not going to promise to implement, we will always look into it

Q: But CM and all the others have..
A: ROM developers, including CM, build something they want to use. The ROM developer that includes something they won’t run implies less than 100% effort to ensure it does work. As a team, we have similar goals and objectives. If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don’t include (or don’t want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-N.

Q: Superuser or SuperSU?
A: Team OctOS uses SuperSU and is installed.

Bugs:

Bugs happen. Our testers are very good at breaking things, but no where near as good as the rest of the Android public. In order to investigate and fix issues, we need the help of the users who are going to report them. The Android OS has many nifty features to help us in this, but only if we can engage the user to assist us.

Logs, Logcat, and the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB)

Like any other OS, Android has multiple log files that are generated and record the goings-on of the system. As a user, you have two basic ways to view and pull these to send to us. Without the information in the logfiles, there simply is not a whole lot of information to go on.

Log file APKs

Team OctOs recommends SysLog. This application will allow you to selectively pick any (or all) of the system logs, compress them into a .ZIP file, and allow you to save, email, move to your Copy/DropBox/Cloud Storage account, etc.

ADB Logcat

The Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) is a powerful tool available from Google as part of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Used for many things, being able to selectively see, in real-time, what your device is doing cannot be downplayed. While there is more setup involved, if you are doing consistent ROM flashing, you really should invest the time to get setup properly to do it.

ADB Logcat tutorial here:How to create a logcat log

Basic Instructions:

  1. Download ROM .zip file and MD5 file, and grab your favorite Open Gapps package http://opengapps.org and if you want root download your favorite root zip. We’ve stopped including it so you can choose your own. SuperSU and phh superuser are popular.
  2. Reboot to Recovery (Note: Use Reboot to Recovery from Power Menu, Hardware-based boot to recovery, or adb reboot recovery – ROM Manager or similar software is NOT supported)
    — TWRP is the ONLY recovery Team OctOs uses – We do not support flashing on CWM —
  3. Factory Reset from TWRP
  4. Flash ROM and GApps .ZIP files
  5. Reboot

The foundation of the Android OS is the fact that is it open-source. We have all code we use internally in the creation of Oct-N available on our GitHub repositories.

Unless otherwise specified, all Oct-N builds kernel souce can be found on github at Team-OctOS.
