Default [ROM] Google Edition [4.3 STABLE] - MMS Quick reply - Xposed - GravityBox - No Reboots 12/13/2013




I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BRICKS, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS POST


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information

Let's face it, Android 4.3 is still a great build and you don't need to be on 4.4, there are issues with that ROM too that developers like myself had to work out (camera sucked, distorted volume sounds, SD card permissions, and the list goes on), if you are suffering from reboots, This build is for you and has plenty of goodies to keep you going.

This is the latest and final 4.3 build for the I9505-G Google Edition S4 official from Google/Samsung, It's a very clean base, I have made quite a few optimizations to the ROM and added the tools necessary to give it the features (100% working features that is) of an AOSP ROM, Google edition does not use open source proprietary which mean's Bluetooth, and most importantly the camera will work way better out of the box since Samsung builds this ROM (Full HDR support, 1080p video recording, no green lines on the front cam), This ROM is a perfect daily driver for users who are experiencing reboots on 4.4 due to the modem/bootloader issues on certain phones.

MD5: c4cbae8efc8a0c41728fe8e421822cc4

To block the OTA use the "ongoing notification blocker" feature in gravity box provided in this ROM to simply block "Google Service Framework" from showing you OTA and simply ignore it, it will never nag you again

Don't worry, Google Service Framework does not show any other notifications but the OTA so you won't be missing ANYTHING else

Enjoy this very stable 4.3 ROM, It is a very good daily driver

Xposed + Gravity box



it's not a surprise to me anymore when I visit the XDA website and a spotlight on an xposed module is featured, ever wonder why that is? because it's just that good!

--- Date&Time settings crash
--- Caller ID mismatch
--- Split conversation in messaging
--- Wakelock in calendar app periodically turning on the screen
--- Waelock in messaging app turning on the screen every time new message arrives
--- Missing TTS settings in Language&Input
--- Missing extended developer options

Mods - the set of additional useful features that make using the system more easy and fun
--- CyanogenMod Pie controls
--- Expanded Desktop
--- Statusbar QuickSettings tile management with tile reordering
--- Lockscreen targets
--- Statusbar color and transparency
--- Statusbar Brightness Control
--- Statusbar icon colors
--- Additional QuickSettings tiles:
------- Sync on/off, WiFi AP on/off, GravityBox shortcut, Torch, Network mode (2G/3G/2G+3G switch), Sleep, QuickRecord,
QuickApp, GPS on/off, Ringer mode, Volume tile
--- Quick pulldown - switches to QuickSettings when status bar is pulled down near edges
--- Auto-switch to QuickSettings when there are no notifications
--- Center clock in statusbar
--- Battery indicator style
--- Navigation bar tweaks
--- Low battery warning policy
--- Disable LED flashing when battery low
--- Disable LED while charging
--- Auto-hiding of signal icons for empty SIM Slots
--- Advanced power-off menu (reboot, recovery)
--- Volume key cursor control
--- Skip tracks by volume key long-press while screen off (thanks to rovo89)
--- More volume levels for music stream
--- Option to control safe headset media volume
--- Button for clearing all recent tasks at once
--- Fullscreen caller photo
--- CRT screen off animation

--- Autobrihtness levels adjustment
--- Lockscreen tweaks - show widgets maximized, lockscreen background style (color fill, custom image)

--- Hardware key actions - menu long-press/double-tap, back long-press, home long-press
--- MasterKey vulnerabilities patched (thanks to @Tungstwenty)
--- Dithered Holo background
--- Option to use solid black Holo background
--- Expandable volume panel
--- Option to unlink ringtone and notifications volumes
--- Notification drawer style (background color, image for portait/landscape, transparency)
--- Button backlight modes (default, disabled, always on while screen is on)
--- Button backlight notifications (for devices that lack Notification LED)

Some items may not function properly but who cares? this module is always getting updated and fixes are implemented on a regular, best part is you can update right from the xposed installer this ROM provides

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Save those hardware buttons! Use LMT Launcher



Lets face it, the more you press that home button the faster the flex cable is going to malfunction, one thing you can do is find some sort of gesture launcher, LMT launcher is free, frequently updated and offers a ton of customization. 1 swipe up from the bottom and I can 1) turn the screen off 2) home button 3) multitask 4)quick settings 5)notification panel

my pie
pie 1 - key - 26 (this turns off screen)
pie 2 - home
pie 3 - key- 187 (this enables multitasking menu without graphical glitch using non root method)
pie4 - notification pulldown
pie5 - quicksettings

build is up, 6am in Canada but I wanted to build something extremely stable that will work for ALL PHONES and not carry the bloat of touchwiz, This build is mainly for those phones that just won't play nice on 4.4 atm, I will do whatever it takes to push out good ROMs that EVERYONE can enjoy

remember

To block the OTA use the "ongoing notification blocker" feature in gravity box provided in this ROM to simply block "Google Service Framework" from showing you OTA and simply ignore it, it will never nag you again

Don't worry, Google Service Framework does not show any other notifications but the OTA so you won't be missing ANYTHING else

Enjoy this very stable 4.3 ROM, It is a very good daily driver

Then the ROM developer had no idea what they were doing or you just flashed wrong?, Battery will be good on this build if flashed via my instructions in the OP

This is the best 4.3 GE ROM for me The only "problem" i have encountered with ALL 4.3 GE ROMs is that Skype causes battery drain. It doesn't really close when you sign out and stays in memory receiving wake events and you have it close it with a task manager app. Any idea to fix this behavior?
