This is a stock, rooted TW 4.3 rom based off of the recent ML1 update. It does not contain a bootloader or modem. KNOX has been NIXED too. ThePagel was able to grab the .tar which made this possible. Go throw a huge thanks his way.

First build was packaged in all of it's bloated glory. Just wanted everyone to see what all the update had to offer....minus the locked
Second build, I did some debloating to see how much we could trim this thing up and still meet everyone's needs. Good thing I posted a .zip of all of the apps I pulled out, huh. One man's bloat is another man's treasure.
This time, I'll leave it up to you. I rebuilt it with Aroma to allow everyone to choose what apps get installed.
Big thanks to Imoseyon and Ktoonsez for allowing me to include their kernels. Go throw your wallet at them for making this phone run awesomely again.....or at least throw them some thanks.
Newest build includes my stock kernel built from Samsung source.

Get the ML1 Modem here.

See Imoseyon's Lean Kernel thread here.

See Ktoonsez's KT747 Kernel thread here.

Samsung source


Aroma Installer (see Changelog in Post #2 for options)
init.d support (Lean Kernel and KT747 Kernel)
4-way Reboot Menu
Tether Mod

To Install:

Must be on MF1 or earlier bootloader
Place .zip on ext. sdcard
Wipe data, cache and dalvik cache (if you don't wipe, don't bring up any strange rom behavior or quirkiness here)
Install rom
Upon reboot, you will be asked if you want to "disable recovery flash", always answer "NO". Don't worry, this will not over-write your recovery, it is just part of the root process.
When booting for the first time, it may take up to 5 minutes. DON'T PANIC!

apks removed from this build - This is not a flashable zip. Unzip and copy whichever apks you want to /system/app/ and set permissions to match (rw-r--r--) then just reboot. Don't try to install, it's not necessary for system apps.

Original included dkp kernel - Remember, always wipe cache & dalvik cache when installing kernels.

Q: I took the update, can I install this?
A: Sorry, your bootloader is now locked and currently there is no method for installing custom roms.

Q: If I install this can I go back to any other rom?
A: Yes. This is just a custom rom like any other rom that you have flashed. It does not have the ability to lock your bootloader because none of that GARBAGE is included.

Q: Will this update me to the newest modem?
A: No, the modem is not included though it is highly recommended that you update to the ML1 modem (flash modem only, no other firmware).

Q: I know that I'm still on the MF1 bootloader but I flashed this and now I've got a big yellow triangle and it says something about unauthorized software. What happened?
A: You forgot to unlock your bootloader. Now you need to Odin back to MF1 and then unlock it with the Casual Tool.

Q: Will the Xposed framework mods work on this rom?
A: Several people have been using them with varying results. Load up a few and let us know how they work!

Q: Will google wallet work on this rom?
A: Yes. See here for instructions.

Q: Why does my flash go off when I receive a call?
A: It's a glitch in the update. See here.

Q: Why is my battery draining so fast?
A: Here's a couple of reasons that have been discovered here and here.

Q: Why am I showing to be connected to 4G and Wifi at the same time?
A: Either use TiBu and freeze "Caller Name ID 1.14.10" or your favorite root explorer and delete Canid.apk.

Awesome. Thank you so much!

Will we be asked upon every reboot if we want to fix root or just upon the first reboot?
