I was able to make a flashable zip of the ANC5 firmware, partially debloated, rooted and zipaligned. I can also make it deodexed if needed. Still have to go through a debloat list to get everything I can removed. I used ArchiKitchen. Worked really well. The zip is around 1.5gb currently.

Also able to compile a custom kernel.

Okay I can do that. I need to know what the kernel path is for your device. Using a file manager browse to /dev/block/platform/SOME FOLDER/by-name/boot
I need to know what the SOME FOLDER is.

This is awesome. Interested to see the debloat list you come up with. Wish I could get into this too but it sounds like a potential time sink for me, LOL.

Not that I have ever seen. I have had a P900 since the day it was released and rooted since day 3 and am always on these boards.

Not to be "That guy" but it clearly states at the top of this forum that no questions should be posted in this fourm. You may want to ask a mod to move this to the Q&A section or it may get locked. It may go unnoticed except for the [Q] in the title. Again, no biggie to me but don't want to see you have this thread locked as it is a really qood question.

Oh sorry, I asked the administrator to move it to the right forum.
