Default [ROM][I9505][XXUGNG2] Samy Deluxe S4 ROM S5 Style NOFX




After a weekend where I had time to think and reconsider everything, I decided to re-open a new thread here at XDA for my Samy Deluxe ROM. Hopefully the new thread will be a bit more user-friendly than the previous one.


Q: What is Samy Deluxe S4 ROM?

Samy Deluxe S4 ROM is my tiny personal project for the international version (GT-I9505) of the Samsung Galaxy S4. It has been the very first of its kind and I decided it could still be a very good starting point for Galaxy S4 owners who seek to have a little Galaxy S5 flavour.
It is a Samsung Galaxy S5 style ROM foremost but I will try to revert it back to its original purpose of combining the very best elements of all Samsung TouchWiz devices.



Q: There are so many Galaxy S5 style ROM at the moment. What's the need for Samy Deluxe then?

Samy Deluxe has been the very first of its kind. Go ask that question all the other ROMs out there. If you want, you can continue using the original. If not, you have plenty of valid alternatives.

Q: OK. So what's inside?

Numerous Galaxy S5 features, apps, widgets, styling etc. What is pretty standard at the moment. See pictures at the bottom.

  • Android 4.4.2 I9505XXUGNG2 Base
  • S5 Dialer and Contacts with the PopUp incoming call, call recording
  • S5 Bootanimation & S5 Shutdown menu
  • S5 System Ui
  • S5 LockScreen
  • S5 Ultra Power Saving Mode
  • S5 Emergency Mode
  • S5 Download Booster
  • Emergency Launcher
  • All Galaxy S5 Libs and permissions
  • S5 Settings
  • Added UPSM Apps Manager
  • S5 Filemanager, S5 Calculator, S5 Translator
  • S5 Sview Cover (might be buggy)
  • S5 Touchwiz Launcher
  • S5 SPlanner
  • S5 SMS
  • S5 S-Gallery, S5 S-Browser, S5 Music Player
  • S5 Geo Lookout, S Baro, S5 Accuweather
  • S5 S-Memo, S5 Note
  • S5 Activity, S5 Remote
  • S5 Photo Retouching
  • S5 Story Album
  • S5 Health
  • S5 Video, S5 Watch-On, S5 Email, S5 Keyboard
  • S5 Group Play, S5 Optical Reader
  • S5 SFinder, S5 Baby Monitor
  • S5 Air Wake Up, S5 Quick Connection
  • S5 Car Mode, S5 SVoice

Q: How do I install this?
  • Download to internal SD card, do not put it on your external SD-card
  • Reboot into recovery. Please use TWRP
  • FullWipe or use option to factory reset
  • Install and reboot
  • Flash other addons after first boot (very important)

Q: What can I do if there are some errors?

Errors are likely to be there. This is still due to its nature a work in progress. However, before posting, read if the issue hasn't already been mentioned.
If you decide it hasn't, report the error and attach a logcat.

Q: Will you support any other Galaxy S4 versions?

Short answer: No. I don’t have your device and thus will never release anything I didn’t have the chance to ruin it myself….

I don't like the S5 softkey layout. Change it!

Please change it yourself.
This is a S5 style ROM and I don’t understand what the problem is to adapt to new changings. If not, there is always the possibility for you to revert to the original softkey layout.
I have no plans for the moment to revert it in this ROM. We have been spending so much time and efforts into making it so close to te S5 as possible that it makes no sense at all to go back now.
Why always create such a fuzz about nothing? We should rather spend our time and energy into adding missing functions.
I am not going to give you instructions on how to do it yourself. Why? Let’s be honest: chances are high there will be problems and I might end up having to do it for you. And even if it worked, it would eventually cause problems.

Q: What's the difference between the blue and black version?

One is black and one is blue.
To be more precise: the background color in the Settings-App is either black (like in original Galaxy S5 settings) or blue.

Q: What about the extra apps addon?

First off: it’s optional and not needed. It contains some apps I decided not to directly implement into the ROM. The content may vary from time to time but, it has apps such as:
  • Google Earth
  • Group Camcorder
  • S5 Toolbox Addon
  • Xposed S5 PowerSavingMode
  • etc


Q: What is the last changelog?
    • new XXUGNG2 base
    • fixed wake up delay
    • cleaned up code
    • updated Kernel
    • extra Samsung and Bloatware App package (flash separately)
    • edited files: build.prop, SystemUI & framework-resp.apk

CREDITS & THANK YOU

Samy Deluxe would not be possible without the work of some excellent developers here and elsewhere, my contribution is very modest but can hopefully be extended with the beginning of this release.
There are so many parts I picked up, slightly modified and expanded that I am not sure if every developer can be fully credited. If I happened to forget one, please forgive, I will include the appropriate credits as soon as possible.

Version L & M use a modified SecSettings which can originally be found in PhoeniX ROM v9 and the Ultra Power Saving Mode found here. I just adapted it and slightly modified it.
Please visit the original thread and support the ROM: Phoenix ROM

I don't know about original 4.3 builds, all I can say is that I switched between 4.3 and 4.4 custom ROMs without a problem, but AGAIN: I don't know about official builds/stock odin packages.
