Bliss OS 14.3 Release

Bliss OS 14.3 - Generic, and 32bit Builds

We have a number of things to go through here, so let's not waste any time. I have decided it's time to start releasing some of the builds on a regular basis again. Starting off, we have an x86_64 build of Bliss OS 14.3 with Gapps included and arm64 native-bridge, and reintroducing 32bit (x86) builds into the mix. We also have a barebones stock AG-11 (Android-x86 11), with Boringdroid added instead of Taskbar for main Desktop UI

New Documentation Site:
We had to take down our wiki due to issues beyond our control, so things are now moved to https://docs.blissos.org

New Build Instructions:
We now have a couple options for compiling. You can use the instructions found on our docs site
Or you can now use the menu-driven Android-Generic Project 2.0

Updates Overview:

  • kernel-5.10.x & kernel-5.4.x versions
  • Added/Updated Gearlock
  • Fixes to bootable USB installer for Android 11
  • KVM support added to 5.10.xx kernels
  • Lots more, check the changelog

Gearlock kernel command Notes:
NOGFX=0 - Do not override kernel CLI options (needed if you plan on using Vulkan mode)
NORECOVERY=0 - Do not enter recovery or show countdown for it (should not combine any other Gearlock options with this)
NOSC=0 - Do not supercharge the system partition/image on boot
ALWAYSRECOVERY=0 - Always boot into recovery first.

!!WARNING!! The builds that use Kernel-5.2+ are no longer compatible with the AUTO_LOAD=old kernel command line option. If you are using this option to boot, then you will not be able to. It will bootloop.

PLEASE NOTE I recommend everyone testing to also use this in Vulkan mode or boot using gbm_gralloc (which is now the default). Vulkan mode can be done from the Advanced grub menu if you installed using the bootable installer, or if you used a different grub, you will want to add "VULKAN=1" to the grub entry before the word "quiet". If your device doesn't support Vulkan, you can add "GRALLOC=gbm" to the same place in your grub entry. Sleep states should work fine after that.
Other bootloop issues can also be solved by booting with GRALLOC=gbm command -line option.

Builds being uploaded:

  • BlissOS-14.3-x86_64-202106171155_k-google-5.10.32-lts-pledge-xanmod_m-r_emugapps_cros-hd.iso ARM64 not working
  • BlissOS-14.3-x86-202106172025_k-google-5.4.112-lts-ax86_m-r_foss_cros-hd.iso
  • BlissOS-14.3-x86_64-202106181339_k-google-5.4.112-lts-ax86_m-r_emugapps_cros-hd_gearlock.iso
  • AG-11--x86_64-202106131243_k-kernel-5.4_m-x86.iso

Known new issues:

  • Sleep states aren't working right on a few machines. Some can cause SystemUI to restart.
  • Some machines still have volume/sound issues, use 3rd party EQ or volume control.
  • Native-Bridge for ARM64 is not working in BlissOS-14.3-x86_64-202106171155 build. The BlissOS-14.3-x86_64-202106181339 build has this fixed.
  • Bluetooth is not working for many devices.
