Licensing & FAQ

Bliss OS inherits the same Apache v2 licensing that AOSP uses for most of the components, while many of the other components like Android-Generic Project use GPL-2.0 license.
Proprietary components like Google Apps, Native-Bridge, and some features would require additional licensing to be obtained by the customer. 
Bliss OS does however offer development contracts in order to help meet the specific needs of our customers. You can learn more about our contract development and consulting services by visiting the Bliss Co-Labs site


- AOSP Licenses - Bliss OS License - Bliss ROM License - Android-Generic Project License - Boringdroid License -

Q: Is Bliss OS suitable for individuals?

A: Yes, Bliss OS public releases are designed to be used as a daily replacement for Windows, ChromeOS, Mac OS or Linux and work is consistently being done to improve the User Experience.

Q: Does Bliss OS include proprietary software?

A: Yes. Our main GMS/Gapps releases include proprietary software, and are intended for individuals, while our FOSS builds also include some proprietary parts as well. 

Proprietary parts in all Bliss OS public builds:
- linux-firmware blobs 
- proprietary linux drivers (broadcom-wl for example) 
- media codecs (H.264/HEVC)

Q: Is Bliss OS suitable for companies?

A: Yes, but not all builds. We produce standard (bare-bones) AOSP builds with basic x86/x86_64 PC hardware support, and no proprietary software included, and those are available to test with. If your company requires Google Apps, ARM/ARM64 Native-Bridge, or Widevine, please contact us to discuss licensing or alternative development options.

Q: Can my company use Bliss OS or Bliss OS Go as-is?

A: No. the public builds that we make available online are not fit for commercial use or meant to be included in products as they contain proprietary features and services that require per-product licensing through Google, Intel, us or others. Companies that would like to use Bliss OS or Bliss OS Go, with it's expanded hardware-support and features list, must contact us if they would like to use our projects for their commercial purposes, and form an agreement on a development contract to tailor things to their needs, and/or work out a per-device licensing agreement for company use.

Q: Can my company use Android-PC or Bliss Bass (Bare-Bones AOSP) builds as-is?

A: Yes, but only the Vanilla versions. While those builds are very basic, they do include much of what would be needed to base a product off of. If you are a startup or a company interested in this options, please contact us to see if you are eligible to use these builds at no cost. Otherwise, we request you contact us to work out a per-device licensing agreement and setup a development contract for branding, optimizations and specific needs.

You can find the AOSP base builds here: Sourceforge

Q: Does my company have to release any changes made to the collective source code of Bliss OS?

A: This all depends on where the changes in the source were made, as many repos in the project retain a different OSS Licenses, there are different requirements per repo. If you are unsure if your company needs to release the source for any of the changes made, please feel free to contact us.

Another thing to pay attention to is if the tools being used require the end product or alterations to be released. Some Apache 2.0 licensed projects allow for that requirement to be made. Some versions of Android-Generic Project also have similar licensing requirements.
