This is based on the stock rom I535VRALF2 from here: http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=SCH-I535

I've stripped a bunch of Samsung and Verizon crap out of it:

Also changed the boot animation, I couldn't stand that Verizon one.

Its rooted and has busybox installed.

It should be noted, that these do not flash a kernel. When we get access to our boot partition, you'll need to flash a stock boot.img if you came from an AOSP-based rom. (Stock boot.img flashable via odin here (flash in PDA slot): http://goo.im/devs/invisiblek/i535/stock.kernel.tar )

CWM: zip
ODIN (unzip this first, flash in PDA slot): tar.md5.zip

Zip of the removed APK's (not flashable, you'll have to manually push these): zip
^^ make sure when adding these if they have an associated odex file that you add that too

EXTRA CREDIT:
flashable stock android apps (from cm9) (will remove their touchwiz counterpart): http://goo.im/devs/invisiblek/i535/stock.android.apps/

Do you have a "changelog" of sorts listing what you removed?

Really???

I mean, I can understand if a thread is 600 pages long, you aren't going to read them all. But really? Look, 48 pixels above your post.

Thanks for this. Plan on flashing this shortly after I get my phone this week.

Excellent work!

The only question I have and didn't see in the OP was this:

According to Chainfire, there is a process that Samsung silently uses to check for root. This process is called com.sec.android.app.sysscope

http://www.chainfire.eu/articles/118...ay_vs_Samsung/

Has it been disabled in this ROM?

Does this have the notification area toggles removed? I'd much rather use a third-party app for that...

There are a few things on the list of apk's that I'd want to keep. Would it be safe for me to delete the ones on your list in Root Explorer though?

Also I swapped out the messaging app to CM9 version and email app to stock ICS already. Hated the Touchwiz versions.

You misunderstand...

This process does not PREVENT root, it silently checks in the background to see IF the user is rooted. If so, the process supposedly phones this data to Samsung's servers so that they know who is rooted or not.

I'm asking to see if this process has been disabled or not since it can still exist on a rooter ROM.
