Default [ROM] Dirty Unicorns 4.4.4 {HAMMERHEAD} (08/21/14)



Dirty Unicorns (DU) is a custom ROM originally based off AOKP, but now based from OmniROM. DU brings you a great mix of stability and customization. The idea to start a ROM like this was purely out of boredom, but later turned into a form of an addiction, a good one. We began to have fun while still doing things the right way. By doing so, we received high praise from not only our users but by fellow developers of other ROMs that also enjoy seeing things done the right way. This ROM will always be free of charge without any strings attached or any of it's developers luring you into donating, or any form of "pay to flash".

"Give credit and thanks where it's due!" That's something that has fueled the way we do things! With that said, we would like to go ahead and credit those individuals and groups that have made this ROM possible with their original code and contributions to the Android community.....

| OmniROM | AOKP | ChaOS | Paranoidandroid | SlimROMs | Preludedrew | Team Black Out | Official Testers / Translators |

Believe it or not, we are human and we do forget things. If we have left someone out of the credit/thanks list, just PM us and we'll gladly add on to the list.

ROM looks nice, using multirom to test this. Gonna play around with halo. Led light comes on (when charging) even when led notifications is set to "off. That bug sort of tricked me into thinking that it was gonna stay on till the phone dies.

Charging and Notifications have two separate LED settings, fyi. Settings > Display > Notifications/Battery.

Sorry I haven't left any feedback. I flashed last night but didn't really have time to get set up so I restored my backup.

I had no issues upon initial flash. No led issues or anything. Hopefully I'll be able to flash and get all set up this weekend and drive it for awhile.

Has anyone had an opportunity to flash yet? Just curious what are your opinions on the UX and/or any bug reports.

I flashed the day you put it up and no problems at all. Everything works - camera, calls, data, gps(must have as im playing a lot of ingress). Installation went smooth and battery life seemed much better than stock and got better with Franco's r23 kernel. Only question would be will the "Dark" toggle be made to invert apps like Hangouts along with the usual suspects? That was the one thing I felt was missing. Other than that, excellent work and thank you!

I'll give this a shot this week-end, which will give you a ROM-noob's-eye view.

It is something we've been talking about for some time now, but nothing concrete has been established yet. Getting the ROM(s) to 100% is our main priority.

However, you should be able to use a full dark mode if you used a gapps package a la SlimKat ROM and the like.

I'll take whatever feedback I can get. It will help us understand what the users need/want while making this as stable as can be.

Installed Multi-ROM and then dirty unicorns. At first I installed it to share the kernel (Franco) and it kept rebooting (it was sort of funny, I could leave it to go do something and it would be back in Cataclysm when I got back). So I deleted and reinstalled and it seems fine. I'll test Franco with it in a bit and seeif it is Franco or simply the sharing that was causing problems.

Dirty Unicorns looks very nice. I'm going to start out just playing with the tweaks and then slowly start adding stuff to it while I continue to use Cataclysm as my daily driver. I will let you know my impressions and observations as I go.

Just got flashed and setup on the latest this evening. Good so far.

Already have a couple of feature requests, unless I missed them...

Customizable quick toggles and ability to assign long press actions to the nav bar buttons. I like long press back button to kill particularly.

Digging having halo again, and with ninja mode it's even better.

Also, so glad to have quiet hours back. It does something for me that I couldn't accomplish with tasker.

Anyway, I'll report more as I keep using it, just giving you some initial feedback.

Did you choose a different stock font on this rom?

Yeah, we're using Roboto Light as the default font for DU. As for customizable toggles, I got it functional a few days ago, but wanted to make sure that all toggles are operational first. Not fond on releasing non-stable stuff. In any event, keep your eyes pasted to XDA in the next few days as we might have a public surprise for all

Made by two different dev teams. Both are based off of AOSP, but we (DU) have our own tweaks and such applied the way we like them. The only thing I can suggest is trying out both and seeing which you like better.

I would like to give this a try. I do have a question though.

I am currently running Xposed with Gravity Box and Ultimate Dynamic Navbar.

Can I install this over everything or should I do a complete start over?

Thanks for all your efforts

If you are running a rom other than DU then you will have to factory reset and wipe data etc. If you are using the beta DU you can probably dirty flash this on tip if it.

Lightning fast and a pleasure to drive. Only hiccup I've noticed was when using the Dark toggle. After the UI restarts, I have no signal. I quick on/off with Airplane Mode restores signal. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Yeah, it says you have no signal, but you actually do. When Google modified how System UI restarts itself, it's caused a little bit of an issue when switching themes, but we're looking into it.

I would not recommend using whatever setup you had previously. For starters, those setups are typically used on stock builds, which this is not. A majority of the customizations you would use with those mods are already included in the ROM. Like someone stated previously, you'll need to do a full wipe to flash DU if you aren't already on DU.

Using Xposed Framework, Gravity Box, and Ultimate Dynamic Navbar now. Will these work with Dirty?

I'm loving my initial impressions of this as my second ROM on MultiROM. I'm going to switch this to primary for a while.

I noticed there is a Nexus 7 (grouper) version, although I can't find it on XDA-- or is the same ROM file multi-device? Any chance the Grouper version would work on Tilapia? I'd love to try this on my 3G Nexus 7 (2012).

I'm having a problem with uninstalling multiple system apps at one time with ROM toolbox. Also can't manually move an apk to system/app or system/priv-app. Just a heads up. Good work though dev

Edit: [solution] fixed by installing superSU and updating the binaries.

As I said, above, I really am enjoying this ROM and it's feature set. Very smooth and stable. The only tweak I am missing from Cataclysm is the ability to have a number row on the keyboard. Any chance that could be incorporated. I can always go to Hacker's Keyboard, but I like the swiping behavior of the AOSP keyboard. No big deal if not on the list. Also, let me know if I just missed something.

Doh! Never mind. Found this and adapted it:

Sorry guys but I guess I will be the one to ask. How is battery life? I know this has been a topic in the past and it's the only thing keeping from flashing until I can get some feedback. Outside of my Q. it really looks like an awesome ROM.

So far, battery life has been fine. I'm still using the DU kernel. I used it rather heavily today, leaving at 4am and returning at 5:30pm and had about 64%. I plan on throwing Franco on it on New Years day. Then again, I know our two phones hae been different before, so I don't know if you can go by me.

I just installed this using Multi ROM (my first use of this tool) with DU as my secondary ROM (Stock is my primary). When I try to boot into DU it says:

Quote:
Error
Kexec-hardboot support required to boot this ROM. User kernel with kexec-hardboot support.
Any ideas as to what went wrong and/or how to fix it?

I believe that's MultiROM asking for the Kexec kernel and I believe your primary (internal) ROM must have it. Try installing Franco Kernel on your stock ROM (or any other kernel that has kexec support).

Or you can not bother with MultiROM, make a Nandroid backup of your stock setup and flash DU. If you like it keep it, restore stock any time you need to.

I think I'm going to go with not using MultiROM. I thought I'd give it a shot but I don't really see a point in it since I have been using stock and Xposed for a while.

Multiroms xda thread has a kexec patched stock kernel in its download section. You do not need to flash another kernel with the patch on a secondary ROM when using multirom

I'm not sure if you take suggestions/requests but one thing I miss about my N4 is that some ROMs had an option to set the volume buttons such that they ALWAYS control the media volume. I always have my ringer/notification set to the max or on vibrate but I like being able to change my media volume using the buttons even when no media is playing, in anticipation of something happening.

Thanks! I completely missed that section in the settings. I wonder what else I missed.

So far I am loving this ROM.

Regardless though, that length of time is impressive for a device with only a 2300mAH battery.

Yeah, that's good!

I haven't left much feedback because other than the couple of requests I had, this rom is solid.

I guess one thing that's bugging me is the back button won't close the notification drawer.

FYI - next update will not have theme engine included. We're still working out the kinks for it.

However, it will include:
  1. CDMA APN Fix
  2. Minor bug fixes
  3. Lockscreen notifications
  4. Minor kernel improvements
  5. SuperSU built-in (instead of Koush SU)
  6. And some other goodies

TBA.

Yes. If I swipe down my notifications, back button does nothing. If the phone is unlocked I can hit the home button which takes me to the home screen or swipe it back up.

Can't remember if it worked before dirty flashing the 26th build over the 19th or whatever the last one was.

I'll try a clean install on the next build and see if it fixes that.

FYI, this is true for me as well. If the notification shade is down, back arrow does nothing. Home works, of course.

That is very weird. I'm pressing back with the notification shade down and again with quicktoggles menu pulled down - back button is working fine for me. Are either of you using mods?

I am using Franco, but no mods at all. I am using Nova launcher, but I can't think that would affect it. I did add the menu button and changed the size of the navigation bar, but tat was all through Dirty Tweaks. Also doesn't work with quick toggles.

EDIT: as an experiment I reset Nav bar to system defaults. Same behavior (or lack of it). Back button work fine everywhere else.
