History of the ROM
well, this is going to be a rather long explanation, but i felt i should share so i could let some in on how this all came about and how it was put together. maybe you'll try it for yourself

i was determined to build a ROM from scratch with dsixda's Kitchen. in order to do this, you need a system.img and cache.img. system.img holds almost everything needed for /system. cache.img holds CSC stuff as well as some carrier stuff that you don't really need. both of these images were pulled from the Odin TAR that can be found on Sammobile. i put them in Linux, mounted them, and copied over the files i needed. the next step was to de-odex most of the files. you can do this with the Kitchen, but i do not. it is because of this that my files will never exactly match another devs. after de-odexing all of the system files, i then loaded them into the Kitchen. the Kitchen itself is rather self-explanatory so i won't go into too much detail with that other than i used 0.223_rev8. i'm not sure if the newer ones work or not but i know this one does work with the jfltetmo variant. after that, the rest is history. init.d scripts were taken from across xda from sources that required no recognition (that i'm aware) but i'll be happy to give credit should any of those guys happen to visit my thread. updater-script and update-binary are directly from the Kitchen with the exception of a few minor tweaks including added symlinks and intro/outro of the ROM.

Apollyon was named after a dear friend of mine who recently passed while trying to save someone else. a true hero. may you rest in peace, Antonio Thorpe.

THEMES
Virgin Theme




About Theme:
it took me over a week to port this from my own S3 Virgin Theme. it isn't 100% just yet but it is extremely close to how i'd like it. if you notice anything strange, please feel free to post about it and i'll make sure it gets taken care of in an update. hope you all like as much as i do. oh, not sure if this works for any other ROM or i9505 variants. you'll just have to take a chance and test it if you're not running Apollyon.

The following apps are modified:
framework-res.apk
twframework-res.apk
ClockPackage.apk
SecContacts.apk
SecDownloadProviderUi.apk
SecEmail_J.apk
SecMms.apk
SecNoteMyFiles.apk
SecPhone.apk
SecSettings.apk
SystemUI.apk

Installation Instructions:
  1. Download Theme to SD card
  2. Reboot into recovery
  3. Wipe cache
  4. Wipe dalvik cache
  5. Flash Theme
  6. Reboot and enjoy

Theme Download:
SGS4 Virgin Theme v1.4

Don't like the theme?:
