OFFICIAL Builds Live!!!!
Today, we post the first of the OFFICIAL builds. As I said in the last BETA post, these will come more frequently by popular demand. As a result, they may not be as polished all of the time, but we'll do our best. I'll outline a few of the major points:Lean - About\Changelog\OTA in one app
In order to make sure you stay up to date with these new OFFICIAL builds, and to provide a way to view both concised and detailed changelogs, and to show you the people who make this project possible, I created a single app that handles all of this, called Lean. It uses the orginal layout design that Screw'd Settings was supposed to have. It can be access via 3 ways, the normal way in your launcher, Screw'd Settings menu, or QS Tile. I've included multiple ways to access it since you have the option to disable it's icon in your launcher. It also has it's own standalone dark mode toggle. This app will have more functions in the future, I also have plans to bake in "secrets" into this app. Stay tuned.More frequent release schedule
We will "attempt" to use an accelerated release schedule. As long as this little thing we have called a life permits, we will try to release OFFICIAL builds every week. I've always been against this kind of schedule, since our source can be in perils at any given time and I don't like putting out broken stuff. I believe in quality over quantity. But after talking it over with the team and numberous request to do so, i figure i'll give it a shot. This also means that anyone asking for ETA's will be shot on sight. (I'm kidding, maybe?)Substratum theme support
We try to stay up-to-date with all of the OMS commits to support Substratum themes. The ROM ships with Masquerade built-in, but not the Substratum app. If you're using a theme that doesn't have an icon themed to match the rest, that does not mean that the icon isn't "themeable" (God, i hate that word), it means that the developer of the theme you're using hasn't provided a themed version of the built-in in icon in the ROM. So instead of asking me to make the icon "themeable", ask your favorite theme dev to add support for the icon in the theme by providing them this link: https://github.com/ScrewdAOSP/Theme-Resources
. Un-maintained devices
As of now, shamu (Nexus 6) is not offically maintained. This means that I'm winging it as far as fixing shamu specific problems since I don't physically own a Nexus 6. Just be patient as far as this device goes, i do what i can.Recommended GApps
As of now, I prefer Dynamic GApps however OpenGapps works fine too.Dirty or Clean Flash between OFFICIAL builds
I will always recommend clean flashing, however for you lazy people, it should be fine to dirty flash between builds unless I say otherwise. If you come across something acting weird, and you dirty flashed the last build, please try a clean flash before reporting the bug.
I originally planned on doing these much sooner, but I didn't feel it was ready to go mainstream, now I do. Please keep in mind that I'm always open for suggestions of new features if those features make sense. If you don't see a feature that you wanted that (insert other ROM here) has, then simply request it and leave it alone. I'll see it, or one of the squad will see it and tell me about it, we'll talk about it, I'll evaluate it and add it if I find it useful. If not then just don't trip. I don't want to have the same issues we had in MM.http://dl.screwdandroid.com/devices/angler/OFFICIAL/http://dl.screwdandroid.com/devices/bullhead/OFFICIAL/http://dl.screwdandroid.com/devices/flo/OFFICIAL/http://dl.screwdandroid.com/devices/hammerhead/OFFICIAL/http://dl.screwdandroid.com/devices/shamu/OFFICIAL/
