MegaKat for the Metro Galaxy Mega is finally here...

NOT FOR I9205 OR I9200

ONLY FOR METRO GALAXY MEGA 6.3


After an extended delay by Tmo/Metro to push out the stock kit kat rom, it finally happened so without further delay let's get into it...

MegaKat V30 same enhancements and tweaks as MegaKat V30

MegaKat Metro v30:

Shut Down All Knox Security Lockouts
Removed Any Sd Card Locks
Modded Secure Storage
Rebuilt Dalvik and Cache Controller
Camera Optimizations
Removed All Data Mining Via System Apks
Volume Boosted at System Level
I Skipped To V26 As This Build Should Be Way Better
Other Significant Improvements....enjoy


MegaKat Metro V2:

Adds simply updated root binary with a non rooted zip of v2 to follow

Features of V1:
Deodexed
***Rooted: an issue with root binaries on 4.4.4 tw causing root issue
Zipaligned
BusyBox
All KNOX Removed
Insanely Fast
2d Rendering Optimized
3d Rendering Optimized
Framelocked at 60fps
Amazing Battery Life: average 5.5 hours screen on and 34 hours total
Additional optimizations and refinements
***Same tweaks and optimizations as MegaKat V12 for i9205

Known Issues:
The only known issue so far is root...the binaries have not been updated so even though I rooted the rom since it's 4.4.4 and apparently the proper root binaries have yet to be released there is no root as of yet...obviously as we get it I'll update it but you should be able to root once autoroot comes out for the new 4.4.4 build.

***DO NOT copy my work, mirror it, or host it on another site witho it my permission
***DO NOT steal my time and effort...i took the time to build the rom for you guys the least you could do is give credit where credit is due and a thanks if you appreciate the work

***I am not responsible for the choices you make with your life, device, or dinner...the choice to root or rom was yours and yours alone I bear no responsibility if you attempt to flash my rom and it blows up in your face or runs off with your fiance lol

Enjoy

In my op2 I like to share apks, apps, mods, tweaks, ringtones, and hd backgrounds...if you post to the thread I'll add it here to the op2...im always adding kit to this op typically every few days I'll add a new zooper widget, background or apk...enjoy


My personal setup step by step...

For the absolute most optimal setup follow these few simple steps to take FireKat to a whole new level and make your Note 4 run unlike any other...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 FireKat VXxX(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


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

8. Do not use power saving mode...it defeats the optimizations and tweaks I've done to make the battery life so awesome

Enjoy the new build...latterly for those who want v1 on crack and steroids...use multicore controller or setcpu to max throttle the cpu to 2.7 ghz full time on performance governor lol then you're head will be spinning

Mega


*Restore Full User Write Access to SD Card: will be reinstating this final hack in v4 but you can It yourself if necessary: use a root explorer:

for the SDcard, make sure you have this in /
system
/etc
/permissions
/open platform.xml as editable text

(Scroll down and find)


< group gid="sdcard_r" / >
< group gid="sdcard_rw" / >




You must add a 3rd line that's been removed by Google to restore user writte access do as follows directly below...group gid sd card rw...to give


< group gid="sdcard_r" / >
< group gid="sdcard_rw" / >
< group gid="media_rw" / >



Make necessary changes to make it look exactly as shown but obviosuly withing the formatting of the text editor your using at to make the mod...its already been done for v3 unrooted

Save and reboot

Enjoy

***To Use Xposed*
1. Open Xposed App
2. Open Modules Menu
3. Click To Activate Whatever Mods You Want
4. Go To Installer (1st menu of Xposed)

5. Title Bar Background: changes notification title background color
6. Bar Color: changes color of slider bar at bottom of notifications panel*

***For each of these theme mods you must
1. Toggle on the mod at the top right of the individual theme page*
2. Click apply at bottom of individual page after choosing color*
3. Reboot*


*S5 Quick Toggles Full Stock Theme Mod (outdated for n4 obviosuly lol)

To mod your quick toggles like the galaxy s5 follow this simple method

Using root browser or root explorer
System
Open Build.prop as editable text
Scroll down to the lines

ro.product.name=hlteuc
ro.product.device=hlteatt

change to:

ro.product.name=SM-G900S
ro.product.device=SM-G900S

Click save to save the mods in the build prop
***if using root explore you must delete or remove the build.prop.bak that's generated before rebooting
Reboot
Enjoy...you can also mod this new theme with Wanam just like usual but enjoy the new circle toggles style/theme



***Unlock Hidden Quick Toggles

*Add Hidden Quick Toggles to Notification Bar: use Sq lite editor
1. Open and Grant Root
2. Scroll down the list to Settings Storage
3. Tap Systems.db
4. Tap System
5. Scroll down the system list until you find "notifications_panel_active_list" (see photo)
6. With notification panel active list highlighted hit the MENU BUTTON on your note
7. Tap Edit record
8. Scroll to bottom of quick toggles list
9. Add quick toggle codes for whatever toggles you want to activate with apostrophe in between each toggle ...ie ;mobiledata;hotspot; ect (full list below)
10. Once you've added the codes for the toggles you want...double check everything then click SAVE
11. Reboot
12. Enjoy the new toggles

*List of Hidden Toggles: type exactly like this...make sure what you add looks identical to structure already in sys.db

1. Mobile Data: ; MobileData;
2. Location: ;Location;
3. Silent Mode: ;SilentMode; ***again already in our note but att use ;Sound;
4. Wifi Hotspot: ;WifiHotspot;
5. Toddler Mode: ;ToddlerMode;
6. Car Mode: ;CarMode; ***May not work; I think samsung use ;DrivingMode;
7. Brightness: ;Brightness; ***you already have the slide bar on notification page so useless imo
8. Do Not Disturb: ;DoNotDisturb; ***Called Blocking Mode on samsung devices...blocking mode is a more advanced tweaked version of do not disturb by on samsung higher end phones/tabs

***Some of these may or may not be supported on tmo/metro base builds...i know several were not supported or have no function, some are also simply renamed/different toggle code but does the same thing...ie driving/car mode, blocking/do not disturb ect... so if you try one that doesn't work let me know and I'll note it and remove from the list...likewise I'm sure with the s5 and a few other new devices there may be more toggles hidden in kk if you find any that work let me know and I'll add them...enjoy
