MegaKat V12 i9205 Deodex: based on udne4 stock touchwiz kit kat rom for Galaxy Mega I9205

I9200 Users Have a Separate MegaKat build below and separate instructions...

V12 is miles ahead of any of the other builds before... If You clean flash V12 and follow my optimized setup in op2 your mega will literally feel like a newer more powerful phone...between screen Improvements for color saturation, sharpness, and clarity...to the performance and responsiveness of the touchscreen and keyboard which will go as fast as you can type without a hiccup....to the battery life and run temp v12 is the pinnacle of every mod tweak and optimization from 4.1.1 thru 4.4.4...enjoy your new Mega 6.3

MegaKat V13 for the I9200 Users will post sometime this weekend...v13 will be identical to v12 and is by far the best build I've flashed on my mega...it's literally like a newer more powerful phone especially if you follow my optimal setup method below in op2...enjoy

***FOLLOW INSTRCUTINS I9205 ONLY
***I9200 USERS MUST USE THE I9200 ROM MegaKat V12 Deodex i9200 see below

I9200 USERS READ
***Megakat V13 for the i9200 is identical to megakat v12 for the i9205 only named different to separate them for less confusion

V12 is one of the best roms I've ever made and by far the best rom I've ever built for the mega...it's refinement in every possible way, camera, audio, call quality, speed, battery etc I pretty much went in and optimized everything possible

V12 Optimizations
Completely Overhauled Dalvik Controller
Ram Management Optimizations
Screen Clarity and Sharpness boosted
Photo quality greatly improved
Instant Focus and Shutter Speed
Instant Screen On/Off
HD Audio Codec added to try an get richer sound
Call Quality and Voice Clarity Greatly Improved

V12 Features: same tweaks you know and love from Megakat but using stock i9200 firmware, bootloader, and baseband means no kernel needed which was causing some significant issues for some...also means fm radio stays in tact, as well as any other i9200 specific features...basically it cuts out the only source of issues...the kernel which is the main goal and benefit without having to give up the speed, performance, battery life, or stability of MegaKat ...enjoy

V12 Update: extremely fast...the fastest I've ever seen the mega...everything's instant and buttery smooth...with performance that feels as fast as the extremely high 9000+/- quadrant scores


V12 Features:

Deodex
Zip aligned
Apps2sd built in system
*SU binary needs re rooted in recovery: see instructions
Super Fast
Optimizations from megafire builds, note 3 kk and jb roms, as well as my several other of my builds to make this rom the best possible
Extremely fluid animations
Lock Screen Zero Lag or Delay
Camera Zoom and Shutter are instant...photos are taken so fast and clear that I'm actually amazed...and they're storing to external sd that fast
3d Graphics and Rendering Optimized
Framelocked at 60fps throughout the entire ui and system, even thru most benchmarks
Fastest Browser of any of my devices or builds...back loading previous page is instant
One of my cleanest builds in over 135 roms to date on 31 devices
All Knox Apks and Lib files removed from system
Rebuilt touchwiz launcher and system ui for faster rendering and app launching
Dalvik and Cache optimizations

Basically...If you enjoyed my megafire roms your gonna love Megakat

Note: due to some binary issues with kk and all the knox and selinux junk, I pre installed all the super su files and binaries but full root is done in Philz recovery enabling my supersu binaries in the rom...no more red lines on boot screen

Instructions: YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY OR NO ROOT/FAILED FLASH IS POSSIBLE


***I9205 USER'S: ALREADY ON MEGAKAT JUST CLEAN WIPE AND FLASH

My personal setup step by step...

For the absolute most optimal setup follow these few simple steps to take MegaKat to a whole new level and make your Mega run like a brand new phone...enjoy

I've had so many requests for this here ya go...here's how I do my exact setup...absolutely most optimized possible

....

1. Uncheck Force Gpu Rendering in developer options...about phone, click MegaKat V10 (whatever build your on) 10 times to unlock dev options

2. Use Wanam and Xposed to deactivate Dvsf under Advanced in Wanam...dramatic boost in responsiveness, lower running temp, no screen dimming or cpu throttling

3. Change Animation and Transition settings in developer options...set all 3 from 1.0x to 0.5x. ..another huge boost to responsiveness and speed of any launcher

4. Greenify all downloaded user apps...Dont touch system app/don't activate greenify xposed mod

5. Disable the follow apps

Samsung Push Service
Google Chrome
Google Books
Google Magazines
Google Music
Google Hangouts
Google Plus
*obviously unless you use any of the above

6. Install latest Google Play Services apk...def seems to have lower battery drain that previous few apks ...thanks pierriotis for the new apk

https://mega.co.nz/#!6JpBAaYZ!xyyIch...hb-U1960ZaLhaQ

7. Disable google location history and location reporting...doesn't affect maps or g now at all only stops a ton of data mining and wake locks

Enjoy the new build...latterly for those who want v10 on crack and steroids...use multicore controller or setcpu to max throttle the cpu to 1.7 ghz full time on performance governor lol then you're head will be spinning



Below is a collection of HD Backgrounds from every major flagship device in the last few years, app, apks, mods, and stock sounds...if you have anything you'd like to add or share just post it and I'll add it to the OP

No the bootloader does not get flashed in roms only in odin...and no you have to follow the instructions like I wrote them...or else I wouldn't have bothered writing them out specifically...you get status flashing errors if you don't follow my method
