Default [ROM][WIP][AOSP][4.4.4_r2] Google Edition for SGS4A (int'l) 0.9.5

What?
  • A work in progress build of AOSP, using CM11 kernel sources and device files, modified to play ball with AOSP
  • some stuff copied from CM, to make build happen (bionic, assorted libs and stuff in external and system, etc...)
  • build makefiles modified, using CM files where possible
  • some small code modifications
  • for I9295 international only
  • stuff is broken, for how long i do not know. Limited time and real life... meh
  • DISCLAIMER: You take responsibility of your phone and what you flash into it, not me. You are warned!

How?
  • grab the file: https://drive.google.com/folderview?...lk&usp=sharing
  • if coming from another rom: factory reset + system format + format caches as well
  • upgrading previous version shouldn't need factory reset or system format
  • flash in CWM (yes, CWM or similar needed)
  • flash gapps
  • report bugs if new one found
  • help with development if possible

Credits
  • Google for Android (and Google search, boy this wouldn't have happened without it )
  • CyanogenMod for stuff i'm using to make this happen
  • SlimRom guys
  • LeJay for jactivelte kernel sources and other stuff
  • Chainfire for root and SuperSU app
  • chenxiaolong for DualBoot
  • Donators and testers
  • ES File Explorer creators https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.pop&hl=en

DualBoot
I provide dualboot version of this ROM, mainly because i run the test versions in dualboot mode (second rom). If you aren't' familiar with the concept, have a look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2447534.
Basically it allows one to have two (or more) roms installed simultaneously, switching between them using the application provided on the above thread.
Notes:
  • When using dualboot roms, DO NOT USE CWM wipe, format functionality. Backup works, but for what i know, it backs up the secondary rom too, not 100% sure how well this works...
  • For dualboot secondary rom, you need dualboot gapps
  • Flashing main rom destroys secondary rom, flashing secondary rom doesn't harm main rom
  • For more info, read the above thread

  • kernel: Msm qdsp6v2 updates from TW kk 4.4.2 kernel

Do you mean installink from apk file? For me it works fine, after you allow Unknow sources in security. I'm on dualboot also.

I allow unknown sources but can't install any apk. Therefore it is very uncomfortable to switch ROMs. Beside this I think a file browser could be good as basic part in the aosp build. Switching via cwm works fine so in general everything runs good expect from installing apks. Can it be a result from don't installing gaps on second ROM?

Well i'm trying to keep this as close as possible to stock AOSP, so only addition so far is the SuperSU. But a file browser of some kind would be good. Just don't know how it is with integrating an app from play store to ROM on legal side...

I actually don't know if installing an apk should be possible without gapps... could be, as there aren't any google play framework.

you can include any app from from the play store as long as its free and you provide credits , i dont think there is a relation between sideloading apps and google framework , but could be google messing with its tail
