AOSiP & Dirty Unicorns Release First Batch Of Oreo 8.1 Builds

Whenever a new version of Android is released, developers work hard on basing their ROMs to it. Ever since Google released the source code of Oreo 8.1 in December, the folks behind Dirty Unicorns (DU) and AOSiP have been working on getting their Oreo based ROMs out. The ROMs have now been released to the public.

Dirty Unicorns have posted 'Release Candidate' variants of their builds. These builds are not stable, but rather a work in progress. DU's lead developer Alex Cruz elaborated on this.

RC builds are builds that are put out by us to bring in as many bug reports as possible. They're not deem 'stable' by us although some might argue that they are but we don't because may include open gerrit commits from time to time. As many of you know, the open in gerrit are usually a work in process. Those commits are constantly changing and they might have some mad scientist type of shit in them from time to time. Whether that's ROM specific or device specific, we rather not label them as stable.

Cruz has requested users to submit bug reports (with the requisite logcats) in case they run into issues. To submit a bug report, you can make a post in the Google+ community of Dirty Unicorns. To learn about on how to take logs, check out the guide published by Nathan Chancellor here. As always, there is no ETA for the stable builds. Dirty Unicorns currently support a roster of eleven devices which include the OnePlus 3/3T, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel C, and NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1. The download links for the RC builds can be found at the source linked below.
