Default [ ROM ]~[ KK ]~[ APR 05 ] bareBones ~ stable ~ minimal ~ epic battery

By request, I ported this project to the hammerhead. I don't own the device (maybe soon!) so let me know how it works.

Stripped down AOKP 4.4.2 base, trying to make it as lightweight as possible. ~ 160 Mb zip

The goal is to provide an efficeint, minimal groundwork for users to customize the way they like it.

Amazing battery life.

Base install has only ten apps in the drawer! (see Screenshots section above)

- Rooted

- ROM Control

- Working ART

- Removed -
.. Google Analytics via noAnalytics Remix
.. Stock Apps (Gallery, Browser, see Changelog below for complete list)
.. Live Wallpapers
.. Bootanimations
.. Stock ringtones/alarms/notifications
.. Bloat

- Silent camera

- AOKP kernel

Other optimizations coming!

Minimal GAPPS

Current recommendation is Paranoid Android GAPPs package.

BaNKS minimal GAPPs started causing FCs and other issues, so until that's resolved try PA.

Installation Instructions

Make sure you are on the latest CWM Recovery!

1) Nandroid Backup
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 GAPPS (optional)
5) Reboot
6) Enjoy!
