ATTN: Sorry for the overdue update. I've been busy with school, on top of waiting for the Lollipop codebases to update. For the time being, I've migrated to a modified SimpleAOSP platform. LTE and HD Voice enabled! I hope everyone enjoys the new build, I've been using it for a couple of days with no issues. XDA FILE HOST NOW WORKING (12/15/2014) Thanks for the support!

The goal of BareBones is to provide an efficient, minimal groundwork for users to customize the way they like it. Compiled from updated sources and modified to be as lightweight as possible.

- Amazing battery life.

- LTE Enabled (Grab a hybrid radio - available in downloads! original thread here)

- HD Voice hack

- Working ART

- Removed -
.. Most Stock Apps
.. Live Wallpapers
.. Bloat

Other optimizations coming!

Download: Check out XDA File Host at the Downloads link located at the top of the thread, or hit MediaFire below.

Click here for MediaFire!

Installation Instructions

Make sure you are on the latest TWRP Recovery! Seems like CWM is finicky with Android L

1) Perform a Nandroid Backup of your current setup just to be safe!
2) Wipe Data & Cache/Factory Reset (if you experience issues, it's probably due to a dirty flash over an old version)
3) Flash ROM
4) Flash SimpleAOSP Minimal GAPPS (optional) (Thanks SimpleAOSP Team!)
5) Flash 105/33 Hybrid Radio for LTE (Thanks hybrid radio team!)
6) Flash SuperSU Update (Thanks Chainfire!)
7) Reboot
8) Enjoy!

I'm a full-time student. Feel free to buy me a drink (donate) if you like my work. It would be greatly appreciated!

I don't get it with the lte!!!! You have to change band to have lte or you can stay in the same ? I mean if you use lte , at the same time you can make a phone call or maybe because of the band you could use only lte?

Thanks for the ROM

I don't quite understand your question, but LTE works for data if your mobile carrier supports LTE on Band 4 specifically. This has to do with the hardware limitations of the chip that is built into the phone. For example, LTE works for me because I'm on T-Mobile (US) in an area that's covered with their LTE towers.

I've regularly seen speedtests above 20 Mb/s depending on where you are.

Don't let that dissuade you from building roms. I'll give it a try.
