I am guessing this will require a reflash of the device and will not come with a regular update at some point, right?
@poVoq No it can be done with a normal update, but it will take some time to get confidence that it works. But we have everything on board to be able to flash this with an OTA

Does this use the GPU? I noticed Video works here, though not on the classic.
@rob Yes we hope to fix all video issues with this new upgrade. It should be also GPU-accelerated then.

My both N5 are running soo fine - u want to make them even better !? I thought only deepsleep was not working well.....
Is this comparable or the same like this here from PostmarketOS: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Google_Nexus_5_(lg-hammerhead)
And by the way: The list of potential devices is now soo long! You said something about 'easier porting with the next OTA'? Could it be that we will get all these new phones running during the next months?
@Flohack Very interesting !
Did you test hotspot and vpn editor ?
@domubpkm Not now
Please will you update the Opening Post as things advance here...?
And will Halium 7.1 make convergence better on the N5? (Issue #301)
3 - eager as evvarh for the good stuff!
Thank you as always for the work done.
@3arn0wl Yes the opening post will always be updated. I cannot speak much for convergence as I dont have a supported device, but lets hope it gets better
I am syncing the repo for this now, Ill see if any of the things I did for my Galaxy Note 4 will work on hammerhead
I know there has been some progress regarding the future of this device
Could someone please clear the current situation?
Thanks a lot!
@malditobastardo Well we are working on a build based on Halium-7.1 which will improve camera and medai handling at least, and probably also solve other stuff. More important for us is that we reduce the number of code variants to be maintained in the future.
The build is still work in progress, currently fighting call audio, camera haha and some stuff. But it looks already nice. Still I wont recommend to flash it now, as basic things might not work as expected.
@Flohack Thanks a lot Flo for your answer. Everything is very clear.
Keep up the awesome effort and just let us know when help with testing is needed.
I want to try this I am not much familiar with installing with just the sources. Do I need to compile them and install via TWRP? I have experience flashing via TWRP and nexus root toolkit.
@kugiigi Please give me a few more days, the current sources and installation instructions are very unfriendly and will lead you in eventual problems. I will publish binaries so you can try.
please scroll up to the beginning of this thread, I have put the detailed What Works list there. Also there is now instructions how to install it with binary images. Would be glad if a few people can confirm my steps.
Hi @Flohack I have installed the latest build with the installation steps in the first note. The installation went through without any hiccups. Very smooth installation.
@Flohack there are a couple of gotchas:
the instructions should read: halium-install-standalone.sh -p ut u.... not halium-install
Can't do this on Ubuntu 16.04 as the package simg2img is not available until 18.04 - bummer
I'll have to upgrade away from Unity
@floop2 Actually you don't. Unity 7 was patched to run on 20.04. I have it on my low spec X86 tablet. It makes a world of difference, and I've noticed no bugs when using it.
There are also new distros featuring unity 7- Umix, Ubuntu Unity Remix
