Help needed for modding
please give me a helping hand as I want to flash some mods to my i9500. I am on XWUBMG7 with CSC: OLB (Thailand).
I want to keep stock ROM to debloat it myself and apply some changes.
Kernel should stay untouched.
So, my idea is to root the phone with this method of pre-rooted multifiles: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2317105
After that, flash TWRP and install 3Minit framework: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2283684
The 3Minit framework requires a deodexed ROM, thats why I can't easily root with CF auto root.
But at the moment, the pre-rooted files from the link above are not available in my XWUBMG7 (which I dont want to change at the moment as I might run into problems with not matching CSC).
If I root with CF Auto root, my ROM is still odexed.
I found a method to deodex your own ROM here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2213235
But I am not sure if this is sufficient. I can't see if the ROM will be zip-aligned as well (besides that I don't know if it is beyond my skills), which I want it to be performance-wise.
So, any idea how I can achieve a deodexed XWUBMG7 in Odin-flashable format for the i9500?
It seems that the pre-rooted files would be the easiest way for me to reach my goal as I can keep everything and only have to Odin-flash the ROM as PDA and am done.
Thanks in advance for your advices.
