    [L-ROM] Tenchi's Dark Unicorns-ROM Lollipop Android 5.1.1 for ADAM [WIP] [2015-05-27]

    This is a build of the latest Android Dark Unicorns-ROM Lollipop 5.1.1 ROM. Should be okay on internal flash install now with latest update. This includes USB fixes from ri9000. The Status Bar Battery, Date/Time and OmniSwitch customizations are useful.

    For more info go here: Home

    For now it is a nvflash release as there are some issues with building zip file.

    Currently overclocked to 1.5GHz, to edit PixelQi settings, clock speed, sleep mode and other settings edit /system/etc/adam_preboot.sh

    Information to setup micro sdcard booting

    How to install ROM and Google Apps zips from ClockworkMod

    1. Download the zip and ADB and USB drivers ZIP in download section.
    2. Follow "How to install ADB driver" instructions below.
    3. Make sure you have an alternate keyboard pre-installed before installing Google Apps otherwise you will get force closes of AOSP keyboard all the time.

    8. If installing new ROM type adb shell rm -rf /system/* to remove previous ROM files and do Wipe Data/Factory Reset.
    9. Type 'adb push file.zip /external_sd/' (should see files being transferred to microsd).
    10. On Adam use volume keys or middle 2 soft touch keys to navigate up and down to "Install zip".
    11. Press top soft key button to enter selection.
    12. Navigate and enter to /storage/external_sd.
    13. Navigate and enter to your file.zip file.
    14. Navigate and enter to Yes to install, should be no errors.
    15. Reboot your Adam once the transfer is complete.

    How to install ADB driver

    1. Extract the ADB zip with archive utility like WinZip or WinRAR.
    2. Run UniversalAdbDriverSetup6.msi.
    3. Connect Adam to computer via USB.
    4. Right click on "My Computer" in File Explorer.
    5. Click on "Device Manager".
    6. Should see "Notion" with exclamation mark.
    7. Right click on "Notion" and select "Update Driver Software".
    8. Select "Browse my computer for driver software".
    9. Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
    10. Select "Android Device" and press Next.

    Tested and working:

    9.3 5.1.1_r4
    [2015-05-27]
    -working on internal flash now
    -kernel stability update reverted suspend speed cap and i2c code change, slower uart clocks
    -camera app should not be crashing now when toggling video mode, but still not saving video

    9.3 5.1.1
    [2015-05-04]
    -usb audio
    -hwcomposer hdmi fix
    -PowerHAL for cpu boost on touch and 1GHz battery saving mode
    -mic
    -lp2 mode sleep disabled by default now to allow for stable usb connection can be re-enabled in /system/etc/adam_preboot.sh if you choose better sleep power usage over usb and comment out keepawake line (only works for some adams)
    Pixel Qi toggle app
    Camera app partially working now in picture mode
    Wifi
    Bluetooth A2DP
    GPS should be working

    Not working:
    -leaving HDMI plugged while booting causes boot-loop and sleeping causes it not to wake
    -sometimes touch screen doesn't respond, just slide power switch and then press side back button
    -HW Accelerated video playback
    -Deep sleep
    -freezing sometimes on shutdown/reboot
    -Compass
    -camera app doesn't capture video and picture may be inverted

    Attempts to boot from SD don't work for me. The boot process starts, then after a while blinks (i.e., spontaneously restarts), then stalls. adb commands either fail to execute, or show me a "protocol error" message.

    My partitions (sectors; 512 bytes each):
    /dev/sdd1 8192 20488191 20480000 9.8G c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
    /dev/sdd2 20488192 21569535 1081344 528M 83 Linux
    /dev/sdd3 21569536 30580735 9011200 4.3G 83 Linux

    Not sure why it is not booting for you as you have the partitions aligned and sized okay, maybe try my known working config below:
    Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
    1 32256B 8001028095B 8000995840B primary fat32 lba
    2 8001028096B 9201647615B 1200619520B primary ext4
    3 9202302976B 16070475775B 6868172800B primary ext4

    Android M source is now available but I can't get it to boot. I have since 5.1 using 5.0 init code, but now that is not working anymore. Never did figure out exactly what portion on init code prevented 5.1 to not boot...

    Does this mean I can flash via SD card in recovery or do I still have to push via ADB? Thanks for the hard work.

    Yes it can now be flashed via standard zip install in CWM recovery and adb sideload should work as well.

    I have tried this rom, and it seems very nice, starts up quick and is snapy. The problem is that I can't get any Gapps in, even the nano or pico version. They all say that there's insufficient storage space in the system partition when I try to get them in from CWM recovery. Do I need to repartition, or something like that? I am using this on the main memory, not SDCard.

    You need to use an nvflash from something like slim 5.1.1 to increase size of system.
