XOS is a new generation Android-based cutting-edge OS based on the Android Open Source Project and Code Aurora Forum releases.


What is XOS?

halogenOS, also known as XOS is a new Android ROM which ships with the global aim to become a modular ROM which keeps as high as potentially possible operating performance on your mobile device while still maintaining a sufficient feature base of nice, small and minimal features that would not be available via any external feature base, extension, mod or plugin.

We hope you have a truly halogenified experience!

Internals of XOS
At core, the ROM is composed mainly of components from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and Code Aurora Forum (CAF), with extremely minor set of components from LineageOS (LaOS or LN) which have been added to source in order to allow for better cross-device compatibility.


Our LOVE to others
A huge thanks goes to those behind the AOSP and CAF, the LineageOS Project and all of its contributors for the sources used in the development of the base ROM which we started with inclusive of all the work and dedication their team puts in order to keep us updated on the awesome contributions that they make.


We will be keen on ensuring that we be up to date with the code from our base sources, with regular ROM updates hopefully coming from time to time.

Please do not ask for ETA's (else you shall be spooked by Mr Skeltal). Almost all of us are students, and with the current lifestyles and routines we have, it is not that easy to acquire time to develop the ROM, though we'll be sure to keep you updated and release OTAs as soon as they are available and ready for publication. If you want to be really updated quick, then join us on Telegram: http://telegram.me/halogenos



Overall as a ROM, XOS is very stable. Our mission statement has always been of maintaining a clean and properly maintained ROM.
We take proper priority with ensuring that performance and stability are put first, features are considered an extra topping on the cake.
