Samsung’s Big Thing of 2013 Is Omni’s Latest Nightly

Samsung has sold over 40 million (props to you if you read that in an Austin Powers voice) Galaxy S4′s in 2013, and that’s a tremendous number. Now just think if even 1% were running OmniROM! Well now that 1% can with the S4 being added to Omni’s nightly builds. That includes all variants of the S4 thanks to Omni contributors jakew02, jumoog and Evisceration: jfltexx, aka Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE [xda] jflteatt,...

Omni Development Updates

The response to Omni so far has been amazing, more than I originally thought. We have many device maintainers who have come on-board and have been already able to bring Omni to almost a couple dozen devices, and many people are helping us on various things on the distribution.

Of Jelly Beans and KitKats

With really only 2 weeks officially in on this wild ride that Omni has become, Google finally released KitKat. The jury is still out on how great an upgrade this is, but I think we can all agree it is a big one.
