    [N-ROM] Tenchi's Dirty Unicorns ROM Nougat Android 7.1.2_r36 for ADAM WIP 2017-12-10

    This is a build of the latest Android Dirty Unicorns-ROM Nougat 7.1.2_r36 ROM. It is based on AOSP ROM with many customizations. This includes USB fixes from ri9000. Internal install uses mmcblk0 with three partitions just as in Marshmallow, rather than standard mtdblock, so re-partitioning may be needed if coming from older ROM (see TWRP instructions).

    For more info go here: Dirty Unicorns - Go Dirty, Never Clean

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

    7.1.2_r5 on front page. Seems that Google Play Store does not work once it is updated. Not sure how to prevent it from updating.

    I am glad to see Adam continues to get latest Android. Wonderful work by Tenchi, Borkata and many others. Many thanks to you.

    I feel the latest roms haven't attained the stability of older roms. While I test new roms now and then, I keep going back to CM 12.1 for obvious reasons. I think the latest androids are a bit too much for old horse Adam to handle with its limited RAM,storage, older ARM architecture and processor core etc. Or may be the problem is only with my Adam. All ears.

    The Adam is definitely showing it's age now with latest ROMs especially if you install Google Apps which causes freezing at times.

    ZenOgeek, what type of stability problems have you encountered causing you to go back to older ROMs? Maybe I can look into them as for the most part the Apps I use work generally without any issues. Post logs if you can when you encounter these issues.
