SlimLP hammerheadcaf Uber 4.9 Unofficial builds
Making SlimLP more faster and smoother


SlimSaber: Uber toolchain 4.9.3
SlimKernel: Uber toolchain 4.9.3

Disclaimer
I'm not responsible for any damages on your device.

The rom and the kernel are tested by me first before I make it available online. I could have overseen something during testing, please understand. In summary, the ROM is still SlimKat, with some additional features (see below), but is also compiled with SaberMod toolchain. You can consider this build as a "nightly" and the build from the official thread is stable and weekly.

!!! Please don't discuss these unofficial builds in the official thread. Users can get confused easily!!!

What makes different from the official SlimRoms
  • Compiled with a custom toolchain UBERTC for more performance and better battery life
  • Compiled with the GCC optimization level -O3
  • Compiled with strict-aliasing compiler optimization
  • Added patches to fix GCC strict-aliasing violation rules
  • Added ARMv7 optimized string handling routines for more smoothness and more memory optimization
  • Disabled SQLite fsync to increase I/O performance
  • Cherry-picked some AOSP bug and memory leak fixes
  • Cherry-picked some KitKat bug and memory leak fixes

Installation instructions
Coming from stock or another ROM:
  • Full wipe: system, data, cache, dalvik cache.
  • Flash the SlimSaber build.
  • Flash gapps from here
  • Flash latest SuperSU from here
Coming from previous SlimSaber build:
  • Flash the SlimSaber build.
  • No need to wipe dalvik-cache. The system will do it anyway if it needs to.
  • No need to re-flash gapps. Gapps will be restored back automatically by backup tool during flashing.

Known Issues
  • Skype call not working.
    Use Skype version 4.9.0.45564
  • Lens blur photos will crash while processing
    This is caused by using a toolchain version number greater than 4.7.
  • "Prevent accidental wake up" display option causes black screen when incoming call comes in
    Disable it for the time being, until the bug is fixed

F.A.Q
F.A.Q.

Additional features included!
The main features are the compilation of the ROM with -03 flags, strict aliasing and Sabermod, along with the rest of the optimisations listed in the OP. These are all to increase performance and battery life. But of course, there are some additional features included:
  • Gesture unlock for lockscreen
  • Network speeds in status bar
  • Configure double tap status bar to sleep
  • Custom system animations
  • Integrated performance options in ROM
  • Soft reboot option
  • Mobile data disabled by default. This is to avoid extra carrier charges during ROM setup
  • SuperSU root management
  • Lockscreen Notifications
  • Advanced calculator with floating mode
  • Battery saving network mode: Automatic switch to 2G when screen is off.
  • Smooth scrolling (disable scrolling cache)
  • Confirm to reboot to bootloader/recovery

For a more comprehensive list, please see this post by Harsha Raj in the i9100 thread.

Mobile data isn't working!!
Once the ROM is booted, go to Settings -> Toggle 'Mobile networks' for data to be enabled.

It's disabled on purpose, by default. This is so when you first flash the ROM, no data is used, as some carriers charge heavily for even small data transfers.

What about theme chooser?
Next post down, look in the "Goodies" post to find flashable themes

Root doesn't work!
  • Enable 'Developer options'
    • Go to Settings -> About Phone
    • Tap on the Build Number 7 times
  • Go to Settings -> Developer options -> Root access
  • Choose 'Apps' or 'Apps and ADB'

How to change DPI?
Currently, this feature hasn't been ported... so you'll need to install Texdroider DPI from the playstore... or edit /system/build.prop and change ro.sf.lcd_density to the desired value

What is the Toolchain?

What is SaberMod?
The term "SaberMod" is coming from:

How to disable CellBroadcastReceiver
Go to Settings - Wireless & Networks - More - Mobile broadcasts

Since fusionjack source is caf based, and neither of us have time to support two branches (aosp and caf) i will say no for the time being, but if i get time in future will do it for sure

Is CAF his preference or is that the direction of the Slim Team now?

I'll probably give this one a shot this weekend regardless. Thanks for the build.

Caf source is used to compile to bacon, is the main branch for it, as bacon is maintained directly from CAF, and not from google, so it dont have pure aosp as ours do. But i prefer to use caf too, caf is much more optimized now, i could get easily 4h SOT with default kernel settings, no tweaking, no undervoltage on my first private builds. so i would say you to give a shot to caf
