Announcement from AndroidGX: A stock optimized rom for the Galaxy S5 Plus


WARNING :

This ROM is only for Galaxy S5 Plus LTE-A (SM-G901F/kccat6) version !

You will void your warranty after flashing this ROM (knox @ 0x1)
I'am not responsible of any damage caused to your device after flashing this ROM





This is my first ROM ever made and the first ever created for the G901F.
I like simple things so the choice of the rom itself was really easy
By simple, I means definitely close to stock, but with some slight optimizations in term of battery and performances.
I precise that I’am not a fan of much tweaking/customizing, so that’s why this rom will never be a real “custom rom” to my eyes.
I decided to make this ROM because it seems that G901F is really missing devs here.
I really would like to thanks Chenglu for porting a CWM recovery, without him this adventure would not exist, as everyone know as everything begin from a recovery..

  • New bloatware removed : SecKidsModeInstaller.apk.

  • Many bloatwares removed again (thanks to @androidrouen & @SkywalkerZ).
  • Removed ALL added apps (at the exception of TitaniumBackup).
  • Rom is now lighter (480MB+ of bloats/apps removed).
  • Rom is finally back to full deodexed (and forever this time).
  • Boot sound disabled.
    /!\ A full wipe and format system partition is recommanded if you come from v1.1.0 ! (due to deodex back) /!\
