About 4 months ago we talked about SuperSU and the conspiracy that had taken a life of its own in the community. While we still believe that there’s NOTHING to worry about with SuperSU, we have gone ahead and changed our mind about one thing. We will no longer ship with root. We can’t stress …

+Francisco Franco​​​​​​​​ Believe I found a 3 bugs in FKU 2.2beta.(also see comments below)

When using the Saturation slider, saturation of the display barely changes, or it changes drastically, both random out comes. This can been seen also with the Saturation values, as they do not retain the chosen value, or it changes erratically when you exit/enter FKU app.
RGB, Display value, Contrast, and Hue seem to work all fine as they retain the set value and can visibilily see the range of display changes from 0-383(hue 0-1536)

Retested by clearing FKU data+uninstall app, rebooted reinstalled FKU.

Nexus 5, DU11- 7.1.1- N- N6F26Q- 01/13, FKr103, FKU 2.2 Beta, SuperSU 2.79sr3

See ScreenRec of bug.


Updated Edited

The Display Profiles also have no effect when a profile is selected and the display is cycled Off/On, screen Colors remain the same.

Updates! #Substratum
Substratum Public Release 550

The changelog for this is massive, I'll go over the main changes:

- No more "Theme is upgrading in the background" toast without a notification, instead, it will let you reset your cache immediately.

- Updated and rebased Profiles configuration system, full credits to +Ivan Iskandar​. This introduces the new Contextual Profiling System where you can automatically apply a profile at night and day.

- Enforced strict AOPT injection to system to attempt to fix system issues. If this process keeps failing, the user will be alerted that it has failed.

- Showcase has been FULLY revamped! It is extremely fast now and we are AGAIN open for applications:

- Imported Portuguese + BR, German, Lithuanian, French, Spanish, Hungarian, Italian, Russian and Chinese (Simplified) translations! They're mostly 99% because I push new commits too quick, haha!

- New Actionbar UI!

- /.substratum/ folder gets automatically cleared now on every single app launch.

- The algorithm for AOPT (Cutting edge) has changed drastically. This is for testing purposes!
- Disable Show outdated themes in Settings and Substratum will speed up and fly!

Updates! #DNADark
Please Read!
DNA Dark V2.1.DNA has been pushed and is ANOTHER HUGE update!

New Major Features:
- Added 10 Custom DNA Dark Headers for ROMs that support it and a section in the Project app for users to submit their own!
- 2 New QS Tiles that can be disabled in settings if you do not like clutter
- Ability to change Navigation Drawer Header Background
- Tons of app bug fixes and UI improvements

Regarding The Headers:
I have added 10 preset headers, however, I have added the ability for users to submit their own. To submit, go into the Project app, Email Developer, Header Submission. You will need to enter the name of the creator of the image and then simply attach the images in the email template it brings you too. New submissions will be included in further updates... Also, attached below is the "ideal" size for those of who need a template size.

Below are some of the headers included in the new update along with the template header size... Any questions, feel free to email me and thanks to +Alex Cruz for pointing me in the right direction. More headers and styles to come!

Official DU Giveaway

This is the official announcement! Get ready!!!

This giveaway is about us showing you all how much we appreciate you! If we could we would just give out free stuff and that's it but we wanted to also make it some what interesting!

We wanted to show our appreciation for the users that have been here since the beginning and YES, even those that jumped on the bandwagon half way Marshmallow hahaha yes, we noticed :-)

We recognize that DU has gone through a lot of changes both with the ROM itself and community. While many decided
to jump ship or stop supporting us because these changes, there's a lot of you that have said 'this is my ROM' and have
stuck in there with us! This means a lot to us, believe it or not! Not only that but there's a lot of users turn hobbyists/developers
who have started to contribute to the ROM and make it even better! All the feedback on JIRA, G+ and devs base has been helpful
as well. Sure there are times where we may want to choke out a few of you but in the end you make our hobby/project that
much better!

OK so here's the deal with the giveaway

We want to hear from you all! We want to hear your story! We're always hearing about how 'I've been a DU user since the EVO 3D' and
we know there's a lot of good stories out there, we want them! Don't make up things, we'll know if you're lying because we've been
here since the beginning :p

Be yourself and lets have a good time!

- Register if you haven't already and head over to Devs Base

- In the thread listed above, tell us about your experience

~ When was the first time you used DU?
~ How long have you been using DU?
~ Tell us about your experience with the ROM itself and the team.
~ What would you change if given the chance?

Something to add, don't bad mouth other projects. This is not what we're looking for. Tell us about your experience but don't be trashy
about it.

- Make sure to include your G+ profile in your post so we know who to contact for prizes!

That's it! Giveaway ends in exactly 1 week

We've got A LOT of promo codes for a lot of great themes, icon packs, apps and even a few t-shirts!

All of which wouldn't be possible without the following folks helping us out! Don't be shy to follow them either! :-)
