TweakedN3 3.95 UVUDNF9 4.4.2 SM-N900T Samsung Galaxy Note 3
... for AT&T!


Hey everyone - me again, resident no-one-in-particular. Much like my previous forays into "projects"... I'm finally getting to where I feel good about posting this little mess - and it only took 4 months! Clearly I am still lacking a bit in the speed department, but hopefully folks enjoy what I've managed to muster together so far. This was originally based on the stock UVUDNF1 T-Mobile TouchWiz 4.4.2 and is now based on the stock UVUDNF9 4.4.2 base - the most recent official update at the time of writing this post... In other words - this is a stock modified T-Mobile rom! As I already mentioned this took quite a while to put together as a number of my tinkerings had to be more or less reworked from scratch (stemming from tinkerings on other devices and changes between 4.3 and 4.4.2 - and even between 4.4.2 builds), but on the upside I'm pretty happy with how things have turned out.

It should be noted that I still consider this a work in progress, so even though there are a number of things that I still want to include - at the time of writing this post I feel enough is done to warrant it actually being posted. That way others (assuming others give it a shot) can let me know if things don't work or if any oddities come up. Also feel free to comment on how this might improve, if I've gone about anything in a not-so-smart way, or if there is anything you would like to see (or wish wasn't there) - I can't promise I'll do anything about it, but such requests keep me motivated and learning, and thats been the driving force behind my tinkering since it began really

I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS (GOOD OR BAD) AS A RESULT OF FLASHING OR ATTEMPTING TO FLASH WHAT IS POSTED HERE!

In an attempt to keep things clear and concise, see below for links to posts containing various bits of should-be-read info on what this is all about.

PLEASE NOTE: Make sure to THANK @RErick because without him the deep sleep issues that result from a disconnect between the ATT 4.4.2 kernel and the NF9/NF4/NF1 /system base would still be with us - BUT THAT IS NO LONGER THE CASE! As of Tweaked 3.9 all fixes are now included in the main install - and thanks again to RErick for the hard work on solving the deep sleep woes!

BELOW ARE RESOURCES FOR MY THEMES @foreverloco THEMES l. All in one post baby!

KRYON THEME
FOR THE GALAXY NOTE 3 on ATT & TMO RUNNING TWEAKED NF1 KITKAT ROM O N L Y



KRYON THEME is a new theme that digs a little deeper into your Touchwiz ROM's DNA. Its not just image work, but expanding into the smallest things and exploring/exposing new ideas that will make Touchwiz become almost a new UI feel. With KRYON THEMEs, I wanted to merge that edgy taste with a bit of class, to the Touchwiz experience while driving that happy feel and sleek look through out. As an avid AOSP lover, I simply love the Note 3 and all its glory, just not the hideous look of stock TW. KRYON THEME hopes to make you smile

These versions are IN BETA RELEASE and consists of the Main Structures-Framework, SecSettings, SecContacts, SecPhone, SystemUi, S5-Mms, Calculator, Job Manager, MultiWindowTray, MusicPlayerWT, Camera and Clock of course there is more to come. Just getting started...

TWRP/Safestrap Installation instructions:

While this rom does offer some customizable options at install - THE CUSTOMIZATION PROCESS IS NOT QUITE THE SAME AS OTHER ROMS!!

What does this mean? Well, if you want to tailor your installation using some of the available options, you'll have to read up on how to do so.

Wut?!? I have to read then!?! NOO!!!!

LOL - well like I said you really don't HAVE to read about this, it's only if you want to customize things outside of the default setup. If you don't want to customize anything, then simply flash the main TweakedN3 zip and be on your way. NOTE:Info on default and custom install options can be found in the installation instructions zip!

So you want to customize the install? Sounds good - and read on.

This was an idea that I started using over on the Note2 (though I've changed what I consider "default" a bit), and given the lack of aroma capabilities while using safestrap it at least offers an approach that lets users customize things a bit. Another advantage (for those that like customizing a bit at install anyway) is that after an initial step - future re-flashes of the rom will always utilize the same selections (assuming you don't delete some files in a particular directory of course). This should be a boon to those that enjoy flashing this and that, as the process of reinstalling this will now be tailored to what you want. NOTE: Unless you use the default approach you will most likely need to edit/redo this process for each update to make sure all new/edited options are up-to-date! This isn't excessively relevant yet, but it will be soon enough I imagine.
A complete explanation of the customizable-install approach can be found in this post, but for the sake of brevity and simplicity I am going to focus on the approach most fitting to the general (or new-to-flashing) user.

Before getting into that though, remember that the usual rules still apply:
- While very much stable in my experience you should be cautious whenever you flash. Make sure to wipe data/factory reset to avoid issues.
- I highly recommend wiping data before getting started with any of this. This is just a recommendation - not a requirement - though if you have issues that is almost always one of the first recommended fixes.
- I also recommend you already be on the 4.4.2 update, as this is a 4.4.2 rom and I imagine requires (or if nothing else works best with) a 4.4.2 kernel
- Tweaked needs to be flashed in a custom recovery - and thanks to the hardwork of @Hashcode this can be done via his Safestrap that can be found here. Make sure to THANK HIM for this, as none of this would be possible without his work!

Quote:

THE SUPER SIMPLE SAFE APPROACH

Well the super simplest of all approaches would be to just flash the main install zip. For those that tried any of the 4.4.2 alpha/beta zips discussed here the result will be very similar to what was experienced with those. For those that would like to tailor the install a bit, you'll need to check out this post for instructions. Basically there is a directory you need to place on your internal or external sd card, and inside that directory are files that can be edited to reflect the particulars you would like to be installed.

Below is what I would consider the general fits-whatever-install-approach-you-chose installation instructions:

THE GENERAL APPROACH

- Backup your current setup/data
- Decide which install route (default/custom) is best for you
- Download the main installer and put it on your internal/external sdcard
- If you decided on the custom install route
--- Download relevant zip for said approach
--- Extract directory inside zip and place it on internal/external sdcard as instructed
--- Edit install.prop and anything else required to reflect your install choices
- Boot into safestrap recovery thanks to Hashcode
- Recommended to wipe data/factory reset
- Select and install the main Tweaked rom .zip you put on your sdcard

How to custom install Tweaked

So you've decided to customize the install a bit eh? Good to hear.

NOTE: For this approach please be aware that the process will likely need to be redone with new versions to make sure you have access to all available options!
I will try to keep changes to these files minimal, but changes are inevitable, so make sure to stay up-to-date with the version you are flashing, as otherise you will likely get the default install!
ALSO - with this custom install approach you can place the TweakedInstall directory on either the internal or external sdcard. That being said, in general if you have a TweakedInstall directory on BOTH your external AND internal sdcard, the files in the external sdcard directory will be chosen over those in the internal sdcard directory. Furthermore - it is VERY important that you DO NOT RENAME ANY OF THE FILES OR THE DIRECTORY! If you do you will likely get a default install when flashing the main installer (not the worst thing of course).

----- CUSTOM -----
This approach requires changes you will have to do, and therefore needs a little reading and preparing ahead of time. In order to help things along, I've put together a zip file (see downloads post here) with instructions and needed files - make sure to read the... well, the README! The contents of that readme file are below:

--- From the READMEFIRST-INSTRUCTIONS.txt in the ATTInstallInfo.zip file ---

####################################
# HOW TO CUSTOM INSTALL ON ATT: #
####################################

### NOTE: THE INSTALL.PROP EDITING DESCRIBED HERE ###
### NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO FLASHING THE ROM! ###

1) Decide if you will be editing text files on the computer or the phone
- regardless of where you do this, the result must go in a specific directory on your internal/external sdcard (see below)
- if you use a computer to edit, make sure it uses the Unix-style end-of-line character (you can use Notepad++ on a PC)
- Not all text editors work as you need them to if doing this on the phone - I have only tried it using the built-in text editor in Root Explorer
######## THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND A SOURCE FOR SIMPLE MISTAKES - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! ########
2) Extract the TweakedInstall folder (either on PC or extract it to the ROOT of your sdcard - internal OR external)
- Inside are five files - the main one of interest for installing is install.prop
3) Open install.prop using a text editor and read the instructions
- it is on this file you select options
- this is similar in idea to how aroma works
- ALL you are doing with this is changing the numbers that come after the = signs
- DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE! ONLY NUMBERS!
- Follow the instructions for what each number means for each choice
4) Complete any other OPTIONAL file edits per how you want to install
OPTIONS INCLUDE (these are for the more advanced users around - THEY ARE NOT NEEDED AND CAN BE IGNORED):
- If you opted to further debloat beyond available options and have set dangertweak to = 1
- edit the applist file with the apk name that you want removed
- ONE APK PER LINE
- see baseapplist.txt for a list of apk names that are included on /system as "default"
- If you opted to keep some pre-existing system files and have set savelist to = 1
- edit the savelist file with the full path to the file you want saved
- so for example if you wanted to save a script file called 02ForExample that was in the init.d folder, you would enter
/system/etc/init.d/02ForExample
into the savelist file
- ONE PATH PER LINE
5) Make sure the directory along with your newly-edited files are moved to your sdcard if not already

### IMPORTANT: THIS DIRECTORY HAS TO BE AT THE ROOT OF YOUR SDCARD (INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL)!! ###
### IMPORTANT: THE NAME OF THIS DIRECTORY MUST NOT CHANGE!! ###
### IMPORTANT: YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! ###

6) Boot into recovery and flash the Tweaked rom zip

TAKE HOME:
The edited install.prop file (and optional ones related to it) being kept in the TweakedInstall directory on your sdcard will make it so you won't need to do any choosing the next time you want to flash the main installer. You can always come back to or reflash Tweaked exactly how you have set it up with no extra effort!


#########################################
# HOW TO USE MODIFICATINATOR ON ATT: #
#########################################

### NOTE: THE MODIFY.PROP EDITING DESCRIBED HERE IS ###
### TO BE DONE WHEN WANTING TO MAKE CHANGES AFTER ###
### THE ROM HAS BEEN INSTALLED! THE EDITS NEEDS TO BE ###
### COMPLETED PRIOR TO FLASHING THE MODIFICATINATOR! ###

Ok, let's say you've installed the rom and made a few custom selections, or regret not making some in hindsight. You can - without reflashing the entire rom - just go through and install/uninstall the particular thing you want to change using the modificatinator zip. BUT - it also requires you to do edits SIMILAR (but NOT IDENTICAL) to those you made to the install.prop, however in this case you will be using the modify.prop file. If you followed the above instructions for preparing a custom install, the modify.prop will be in the same directory as your install.prop.

1) Decide if you will be editing the modify.prop on the computer or the phone
- regardless of where you do this, the result must go in the same specific directory on your internal/external sdcard that the other files mentioned above are in
- if you use a computer to edit, make sure it uses the Unix-style end-of-line character (you can use Notepad++ on a PC)
- Not all text editors work as you need them to if doing this on the phone - I have only tried it using the built-in text editor in Root Explorer
2) Open modify.prop using a text editor and read the instructions
- it is on this file you select options
- this is similar in idea to how aroma works
- ALL you are doing with this is changing the numbers that come after the = signs
- DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE! ONLY NUMBERS!
- Follow the instructions for what each number means for each choice. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN!
4) Move the edited modify.prop to the proper directory (same one the install.prop is in) if not already

### IMPORTANT: THIS DIRECTORY HAS TO BE AT THE ROOT OF YOUR SDCARD (INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL)!! ###
### IMPORTANT: THE NAME OF THIS DIRECTORY MUST NOT CHANGE!! ###
### IMPORTANT: YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! ###

6) Boot into recovery and flash the modificatinator zip

TAKE HOME:
The edited modify.prop being kept in the TweakedInstall directory on your sdcard will need to be edited every time you want to use the modificatinator zip.
### WHEN EDITING TO MAKE A SELECTION MAKE SURE THAT ANY OPTIONS YOU HAD PREVIOUSLY SELECTED HAVE BEEN EDITED BACK TO "NO CHANGE" VALUES AS WELL!!! ###

--- End READMEFIRST-INSTRUCTIONS.txt -

The hope is that these instructions are as simple but as thorough as possible for those wanting to embark on the custom approach.

FAQ

Q: What the hell is TSMParts (new option in Settings menu)?
A: An interface for a huge slew of mods and tweaks, the base of which was originally put together by the original members of TSM and has since been inspired by impressive works of numerous others - the TSM Parts interface acts as a control for all of the customizable fun available. There are a large number of options there - so make sure to check them all out!

Q: TSMParts is asking for superuser access?!?
A: Yep - there are some options that will need it, so make sure you grant it!

Q: I'm having overlap issues with statusbar icons and center clock - what should I do?
A: Yeah - things may overlap, so you will have to either change settings to avoid the issue or just deal with it.

Q: I set a statusbar icon to hide, but it's still there. What gives?
A: The statusbar icon tweaks may require a little effort on your part for changes to take effect. All changes can be elicited with a reboot/hotboot, BUT for most there are other ways:
-- Bluetooth/vibrate-silent/alarm icons/ime/nfc/wificalling -- just change their state (on/off or vibrate/sound, etc)
-- No sim -- if the notification is already active you will need to reboot/hotboot to hide it
-- smart "eye" icon -- changes will happen once the eye triggers

Q: How is battery life on this rom?
A: This is a stock modified rom. As such, battery life will be equivalent to stock were you to be running a similar array of apps and kernel - it really should be no different than stock otherwise (which imo is not half bad really). The kernel and misbehaving 3rd party apps have more to do with battery life than a modified stock rom - at least in my opinion (and experience, though it's limited).

Q: So tethering is a common topic... can it be done with this?
A: To be honest I am unsure as to how tethering will behave using AT&T as the carrier... there was an annoying upsell message that TMo folks would get that I tried to set up to avoid, but in theory tethering SHOULD work on this. I will update this once it has been confirmed by a few folks

Q: Why isn't the accurate data icon mod working!!?!
A: The only time that mod shows an effect is when you are on the T-Mobile or ATT network - I don't believe other networks will see a change in data icon behavior.

Q: What is this LMT thing? How do you use it?
A: You need to check out noname81's thread here for info on that!

Q: Why can't I toggle off/on the security settings for exchange-based emails using the stock email client?
A: Mostly because I haven't been able to figure out how to do it. As long as you set it up to how you want PRIOR to setting up the account, AND you don't change the setting later - you should be fine.

Q: Why is it that when I swap the settings UI type the settings icon itself seems to move in the app drawer?
A: The toggling of the two UI types make the SecSettings package "appear" different to the system, so it's location in the app drawer may change after toggling depending on the launcher and settings used. This is normal and of no concern.

Q: I have an N9005 - can I flash this?
A: Thankfully the N9005 can pretty much flash any N900T rom, but there can be issues with things like wifi/bluetooth/nfc. Thanks to some due diligence searching of @galaningenieros and his pointing to the good work of @cdmvirt here, you can fix it right up by flashing the files found in this post!

Q: I'm getting a force close when I try toggling N3/S5 in TSMParts > Statusbar options... WHY YOU MAKE ME BREAK MY PHONE?!?!!
A: This has been an odd one, but it appears as if the blame resides within a few xposed modules. In particular, the iOS battery module and wanam have both been implicated. I will try to come up with a way around it, but if you uninstall these modules your toggling experiences should improve.

Q: I flashed this in safestrap and either used an old install.prop or none at all - why did I get an AT&T install?!?
A: I did this on purpose - I made it so when flashing it assumes that if you are using the default install.prop and in safestrap that you want an ATT-ified install (assumes you have an N900A and ATT as a service provider). If this is NOT the case - you can override this by updating or setting up a current install.prop

Q: Why don't you mention blah blah blah in your FAQ? It would have helped me a lot!
A: My bad - PM me anything you think should be added to this that would be helpful for the general user base!


Miscellaneous Notes:
Quote:

- REMEMBER - Regardless of what install approach you use you can always use the Modificatinator to un/re/do virtually ANY of the options available to you in the main install! No need to reflash the whole rom!
Even if you don't use it right away, make sure to GRAB THE MODIFICATINATOR HERE NOW so you have it if you want it later!!
- Updates that come after the initial release MAY also have a flash-update-only option - whether or not it does just depends on the specifics of the update. NOTE: Depending on what is updated, an update-only flashable may break things if you are themed! I will try to avoid this as much as possible, but all it takes is a minor edit to a framework-res.apk string (for example) to necessitate an overwriting of a file typically quite important for themers (resources.arsc) - just be mindful of this please
- This is still pretty much an unthemed rom - so if any would like to change this PLEASE let me know (a themer I am not!). This is reflective of the thinking behind the whole setup as being nothing more than stock with some extra options. On that note - for those that like flashing various mods and what not, be wary - unless it specifies that it was made to work with Tweaked it likely will not.
- If you are unable to grab a logcat of a force close/issue, there is a directory on your phone that may contain files I can use in a similar way.
/data/log/ is the directory, and the files that offer tidbits and clues as to what the issue was start with the name "dumpstate_". If you send those to me along with an explanation of what went wrong, I will be much quicker to figuring out (and hopefully resolving) the issue!

---LIKE THEMES?---

Good! As time goes on hopefully there will be an increasing number of themes made SPECIFIC FOR TWEAKED! This will be good, as while there are a number of themes out there that would likely at least partly work ones made specifically for Tweaked will completely work! Below is a list of such themes for ease of reference!

I will update this list as new ones come out, so make sure to check back from time to time! Also - MAKE SURE TO THANK THEM! There aren't many who have done this, so make sure they know the work is appreciated!

Themes that have been made for Tweaked
Even though they are listed here, MAKE SURE THEY ARE COMPATABILE/UPDATED FOR THE VERSION OF TWEAKED YOU ARE USING!

- AOSP by foreverloco

- KRYON themes (there are more than one!) by wally3614

- REDRUM, RareAir, and Stock Blacked Out by SICKMADE

- Black and White by cbucz24

- Illuminati by cerj

Alright - things should be all set now

This wasn't all that popular before, and I know it looks a bit convoluted - but I hope those who have tried it in the past will feel some level of familiarity with it!

I hope all goes well, and apologies for any issues that may arise
