WebSockets and Secure WebSockets
 
Hey there,
I'm currently working on an Android Cast app that uses WebSockets/Secure WebSockets to transmit a data feed between the app and the receiver. Currently, doing this on an actual Chrome browser requires WSS since the receiver page is hosted on HTTPS. However, it seems like Chromecast tolerates unsecure WS over HTTPS.

When trying WSS on the Chromecast, the connection couldn't be established I guess because of the self-signed certificate.

Is WS over HTTPS going to be tolerated in the long-term? (I'd say yes considering the Cast protocol uses WS) Otherwise are there any plans to accept self-signed SSL certificates?

Thanks!

I did read. Didn't know what Caf devices were until now, so now I know.

Google: Hey, please use our new APIs in Lollipop, don't use the deprecated ones.
Me: Okay, let's do it.
Google: Awesome!
Me: Hey, but using this new API broke AVRCP metadata
Google: Oh right, we haven't updated the Bluetooth system yet, it's still using the old API.
Me: Then why use the new API?
Google: ...I'm feeling lucky.

I want to react to some of the comments on the XDA article about Google's QA on AOSP (read: http://www.xda-developers.com/android/google-aosp-qa-team-lollipop/), from a custom ROM developer point of view.

While custom ROMs users is a minority (though, a majority on XDA I suppose), a bad support of AOSP is a bad thing for all custom ROMs.
By "bad support", I mean both the lack of tests (resulting in crashes in AOSP apps), as well as the closing down of more and more previously AOSP apps (Calendar is now left out, along with Mms, Music, Browser, ...).

It has multiple implications:
- We're left with a broken system even before any kind of change the team might make, leaving you users unhappy because "it's unstable!!11!!".
- We cannot do ANY enhancement on top of Google's changes for the closed apps. If you want us to add a feature on the new Calendar app, we can't. If you want us to add a new feature on the new "Messenger" app, we can't.

That means even more work for us. We have to fix what's broken, and we have to either Reverse Engineer or re-code from the ground up new apps to replace Google Apps so that we can add new features to them.
This means one more thing:
- Our versions of the apps will clash against Google versions. They will make changes, we will make changes, but we will have to copy their changes (ie. RE or code them, once again) to keep things up-to-date, instead of just having to merge both repositories like we could do so far.

Ultimately, if every stock app is closed down, custom ROMs will become either just slightly changed stock AOSP running Google Apps, or will turn into OEM skins with all stock apps (can we still define what are stock apps?) replaced.

Don't get me wrong, I do use Google Apps and Google Services, and I'm not against having some Google-proprietary apps (Gmail, Drive, etc). But not updating MMS app in favor of Hangouts/Bugle, not updating Email app in favor of Gmail, not updating Calendar in favor of Google Calendar, not updating Music, Gallery, ... is more a bad thing than a good thing if you're using custom ROMs, because then you won't be tied to your OEM apps, but to Google apps. And if you don't like a particular aspect of an app, well, too bad.

This also opens up new opportunities of bringing open source alternative to proprietary apps (one of the things Omni is committed to), but re-doing all the base apps and updating them to match the design of the current Google-version of the apps is a gigantic task.
Sure, there are many alternatives already on the Play Store or other marketplaces, but IMHO people trying out custom ROMs expect an enhanced AOSP experience - ie. enhanced stock apps, not other apps.

We'll see how the music rolls.
Let's take a look at some of the fairly major bugs and inconsistencies in the latest AOSP 5.0 release of Android Lollipop.

+Rushabh Kothari no. It's illegal to decompile their code and use it. Even gapps is a grey area.. This isn't a solution.

Android 5.1 rollout

I've started merging Android 5.1. I'm going to edit and update this post as the progress goes.

Update 1: Started merging a few repos. Merge result will appear in a new set of android-5.1 branches. Manifest is up.

Update 2: Halfway there! (fw/base, fw/native and fw/av excluded :P)

Update 3: Everything but fw/base merged! Almost there :)

Update 4: Merge is done, however it's not guaranteed to be building atm

Update 5: Build fixes are ready. Make sure you apply https://gerrit.omnirom.org/#/c/12501/ and you should be set!

When I'm scrolling through my Google+ stream, and someone asks if Camera2 will be ported to the Galaxy S2 because "It's something ROM developers can easily do", and some random indian "coder" says "I will", I'm all like...

+Andrew Dodd When I see "Camera2", I immediately think "manual shutter time", which is supported in very few blob camera drivers. It's probably possible to wrap the current blob to proxy the Camera2 API calls, but you won't get much new features.
