NEWS UPDATE

Great things start with a solid base and that's exactly why there has been no updates or posts for about 2 weeks or so.

We were in the process of getting a strong base up (which we accomplished yesterday) and then take this forward keeping it as smooth as possible along with few features and tons of necessary optimizations.

We will also support non-nexus devices and help out people with other devices to bring up Minimal for their respective device (which is now easier, thanks to the new base).

That's all for now, keep your devices ready.

Cheers

Here are the latest builds for all supported devices

* Includes February security update.
* Some features. (Check Github or previously posted screenshots)
* Some minor fixes and clean up.

IMPORTANT
I have been working on including the OTA updater + a couple of scripts that +George G. has in Krexus which will take some time and that will reduce the time I have to babysit the build machine and all the manual uploading which would let me focus on more important stuff like improving stability and performance.

Regarding future builds and my build machine
Like most of you are aware that my build machine gave up and I'm looking to fix it which would take a couple of months or maybe sooner. I do not know when would the next build be released but it will probably take weeks unless I manage to fix my machine sooner.

Regarding donations that a few people asked me about
Whoever wants to contribute towards the build machine/current server is free to send their donations to paypal@aldrinholmes.com (If it does not get through message me on hangouts and I'll send you a money request).
P.S :- This is not at all a compulsion, it is put out here since some people asked for it.

Please flash a custom kernel (I recommend AK Kernel) If at all the camera does not work for you

Cheers :)

Everything tested and working fine, just some small changes left and I'll publish the builds for all devices in about 12+ hours from now (It's 2:11 AM right now).

I got temporary access to a build machine. I'll try and include the February security patch and compile and publish an update for all supported devices. Let's see how this goes.

For those asking for ETA on Minimal OS and my other projects.

Yesterday my laptop's motherboard decided to stop working. Probably a short circuit and because it's one of those newer models there are chances that it cannot be repaired without replacing the whole motherboard including the CPU. I'll probably get to know if it can be repaired in the next two days. If it can't be repaired then this might as well be an end to development if not forever then at least for some months until I get myself another laptop or a PC.

Cheers until then :)
