Spring 2017 Omni Updates

Spring is all about the old dying out and new life coming - which for us means there are a number of new things happening at Omni. We've been working on features, added new devices, and even had new people join the team. So let's get right to it shall we?


At Omni we have always been about adding solid features which enhance the experience while still giving the user control, while also not just adding them for the sake of adding. There's a purpose to everything we do.


After searching for a solid replacement to the solid Apollo, which has been on minimal life support for a while now, we've decided to base on the GPLv3-licensed Phonograph. We feel that it is a good base for the time to come and will allow for us to add new features which will benefit the community as a whole. Oshmoun did a great job in getting it setup to build with the ROM but still allows for using Android Studio for development.

Wallpapers, Header Packs, and More

We began a new project recently called OmniStyle which allowed for styling the status bar headers, and now we've added functionality to allow wallpapers to be "styled" as well. We have added a new wallpaper picker activity into OmniStyle and then also integrated it into Settings under the Style section. We are searching for new contributions to wallpapers, header packs, boot animations, and sounds which exhibit the Omni branding as well as an Omni theme (more on that later). If you want to contribute wallpapers, you can do so in our G+ community.

We'd also like to thank the following for their contributions so far:

OMS and Substratum
