°••°°• Empty Galaxy Rom•°°••°

- a debloated international rom.
- a few mods
- themed but not too far from stock
- post 2 old stuff, theme stuff
- post 3 for requested extras.

°••°°••°••°••°••°•

What to expect in the future EG;
As I learn I'll add but anything in now has been tested and has proven to work without taking away from a stock rom feel.
For those who haven't taken note yet, we are very lucky to have some talented developers sitting on the s4.
Because of that I don't feel it necessary to rebloat the rom with mods most may not use or appreciate.
Need something added to the rom?
Throw out the request but if it exists in the forum already, I'll probably direct you to the existing post.

Thanks to @jrkruse for his work on all his projects but mainly for the deodexed base he supplied for Empty Galaxy.
If you enjoy this rom please go thank him, I couldn't offer this without him.

These are apps I use for best results in performance and looks.
Most apps listed can do a lot more than what I do with them.

●For Looks
*Xposed Framework
*Wanam - lockscreen carrier remove, hide battery, hide + brightness slider, move clock left.
*Xui - battery bar, seconds enabled, xylon transitions.

■For Performance
*Dev Settings - transitions to .5
*Seeder - I believe.
*Cpu settings app- I use set cpu.

°••°°••°••°••°••°•

What's Working?
As far as I can tell everything that should be
What's Not?
-Upon initial install Picasa fails to sync.
I don't have a real fix, I just don't sync
