OmniROM Status Update – Moto G4/G4 Plus and Redmi Note 3 Added, Improved Camera for Xperia X/X Compact

By | 30th May 2017

It’s been a while since we last talked about OmniROM. The Omni team has been very busy with a number of administrative tasks but found a brief moment to post an update on that they’ve been working on lately.

Omni, just like most Android custom ROM teams, uses Gerrit as its code review portal. The team did some maintenance and updated the portal to version 2.14, which is the latest version at the time. There have been a few other things to work on, but everything is set and ready to fly.

The build roster has been expanded by two (or rather three) new devices. OmniROM builds are now available for:

  • Motorola G4/G4 Plus
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

The team also has some important news to share for Xperia X and X Compact owners. The device trees for Sony Xperia X and X Compact have been updated to use CAF HALs and blobs. This move should greatly improve the camera quality and produce pictures that look like those taken by the stock camera. We understand that camera quality is one of the major drawbacks for using custom ROMs for Sony devices, so hopefully this should alleviate those concerns somewhat. Finally, the team announced that ambient display will be working as well.

OmniROM with Android 7.1.2 is now available on the following devices:
