[ROM][I9505][Android 4.3.1] - VANIR AOSP jfltexx.... Fasten your seatbelts!!!
I should start by saying that I'm not the developer of this rom, not even have I the skills and knowledge to do the magic that some of you guys do.
Also, if this is not the place to create this thread, or if, because of its context, it's just not right to create the thread at all, please let me know.
This rom is famous in other devices for the speed and responsiveness, and since I got my S4 that I've been following developer's Google+ thread to see when it would be ready... And it just got ready a couple of days ago.
Because there was no xda thread for this rom, I talked with nuclearmistake
(the developer) about the possibility of creating a thread to share the rom with you guys and see if some of you could do your magic. He doesn't have this device, so he won't be active in the thread, but i'll post the links and credits and we'll start from there.
I tested it in my device and it ran perfectly both with normal gapps and banks gapps...Tested later with ChronicKernel and there was no issues either. So it's up to you guys to test further and see how to make it better.
Note: NEITHER ME, NUCLEARMISTAKE OR ANYONE INVOLVED IN THE VANIR PROJECT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR PHONE IF YOU FLASH THIS ROM, IF YOU DO DECIDE TO FLASH THIS ROM, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Note2 : When I used this rom in nexus 7, there was a discussion about using kernel cleaning scripts before installing new kernels. The use of these scripts would clean the content of the init.d folder, which in this case was where all the "magic" was.
I can't confirm that the same happens if you use those kind of scripts with this device, but what was suggested then was to simply clean cache and dalvik before installing new kernel.
(taken from another device because there's no official release for jfltexx... if some don't match, let me know and I'll update this list)
