MegaKat V16 i9205 Deodex: based on udne4 stock touchwiz kit kat rom for Galaxy Mega I9205

I9200 Users Have a Separate MegaKat build below and separate instructions...


MegaKat V16:

Added a custom script I wrote that is based off the touch controller from my n4...the response and real world speed is mind blowing now...

Also boosted the stock Volume gain and enhanced the audio quality further to match the optimized camera...this build is tops and running unbelievable...enjoy


Megakat V16:
Completely Optimized: performance, battery, speed, touch response, ui rendering, camera, sound, and call quality
Removed All Data Mining From System Apps
I developed my own mod to get around knox and secure storage lockouts...full sd function restored
Net Speed Boosts
Browser Renders Near Instantly
Camera Shutter Speed and Save Times Are Instant

V16 is miles ahead of any of the other builds before... If You clean flash V14 and follow my optimized setup in op2 your mega will literally feel like a newer more powerful phone...between screen Improvements for color saturation, sharpness, and clarity...to the performance and responsiveness of the touchscreen and keyboard which will go as fast as you can type without a hiccup....to the battery life and run temp v12 is the pinnacle of every mod tweak and optimization from 4.1.1 thru 4.4.4...enjoy your new Mega 6.3



***FOLLOW INSTRCUTINS I9205 ONLY
***I9200 USERS MUST USE THE I9200 ROM MegaKat V15 Deodex i9200 see below

I9200 USERS READ
***Megakat V15 for the i9200 is identical to megakat v14 for the i9205 only named different to separate them for less confusion


V16 is one of the best roms I've ever made and by far the best rom I've ever built for the mega...it's refinement in every possible way, camera, audio, call quality, speed, battery etc I pretty much went in and optimized everything possible

V16 Optimizations
Completely Overhauled Dalvik Controller
Ram Management Optimizations
Screen Clarity and Sharpness boosted
Photo quality greatly improved
Instant Focus and Shutter Speed
Instant Screen On/Off
HD Audio Codec added to try an get richer sound
Call Quality and Voice Clarity Greatly Improved

V16 Features: same tweaks you know and love from Megakat but using stock i9200 firmware, bootloader, and baseband means no kernel needed which was causing some significant issues for some...also means fm radio stays in tact, as well as any other i9200 specific features...basically it cuts out the only source of issues...the kernel which is the main goal and benefit without having to give up the speed, performance, battery life, or stability of MegaKat ...enjoy

V16 Update: extremely fast...the fastest I've ever seen the mega...everything's instant and buttery smooth...with performance that feels as fast as the extremely high 9000+/- quadrant scores


V16 Features:

Deodex
Zip aligned
Apps2sd built in system
*SU binary needs re rooted in recovery: see instructions
Super Fast
Optimizations from megafire builds, note 3 kk and jb roms, as well as my several other of my builds to make this rom the best possible
Extremely fluid animations
Lock Screen Zero Lag or Delay
Camera Zoom and Shutter are instant...photos are taken so fast and clear that I'm actually amazed...and they're storing to external sd that fast
3d Graphics and Rendering Optimized
Framelocked at 60fps throughout the entire ui and system, even thru most benchmarks
Fastest Browser of any of my devices or builds...back loading previous page is instant
One of my cleanest builds in over 135 roms to date on 31 devices
All Knox Apks and Lib files removed from system
Rebuilt touchwiz launcher and system ui for faster rendering and app launching
Dalvik and Cache optimizations

Basically...If you enjoyed my megafire roms your gonna love Megakat

Note: due to some binary issues with kk and all the knox and selinux junk, I pre installed all the super su files and binaries but full root is done in Philz recovery enabling my supersu binaries in the rom...no more red lines on boot screen

Instructions: YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY OR NO ROOT/FAILED FLASH IS POSSIBLE


***I9205 USER'S: ALREADY ON MEGAKAT JUST CLEAN WIPE AND FLASH
