Hey everyone - resident no-one-in-particular here, and I'm finally posting my little mess of a project. And to think it only took about 3 months lol - clearly I lack a bit in the speed department, but hopefully folks enjoy what I've managed to muster together so far. This is based on the stock UVUBMI7 T-Mobile TouchWiz 4.3 that shipped with the phone... In other words - this is a stock modified T-Mobile rom! As I already mentioned this took quite a while to put together as a number of my tinkerings had to be more or less reworked from scratch (stemming from tinkerings on other devices), but on the upside I'm pretty happy with how things have turned out.
It should be noted that this is still a work in progress, so even though there are a number of things that I still want to include at the time of writing this post I feel enough is done to warrant it actually being posted - that way others (assuming others give it a shot) can let me know if things don't work or if any oddities come up. Also feel free to comment on how this might improve or if I've gone about anything in a not-so-smart way or if there is anything you would like to see (or wish wasn't there) - I can't promise I'll do anything about it, but such requests keep me motivated and learning, and thats been the driving force behind my tinkering since it began really :)
I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS (GOOD OR BAD) AS A RESULT OF FLASHING OR ATTEMPTING TO FLASH WHAT IS POSTED HERE!
CWM/TWRP Installation instructions:
THIS DOES NOT QUITE INSTALL THE SAME AS OTHER ROMS!!
Wut?!? I have to read then!?! NOO!!!!
LOL - well really you don't HAVE to read, only if you want to customize things outside of the default setup. This was an idea that I started using over on the Note2 (though I've changed what I consider "default" a bit), but the end result leaves two install approaches that lead to the same result. One advantage (for those that like customizing a bit at install anyway) is that after an initial step - you will no longer need to go through aroma and reselect options when reinstalling (assuming you don't delete some files in a particular directory of course). This should be a boon to those that enjoy flashing this and that, as the process of reinstalling this will now be much faster. NOTE: Unless you use the default approach you will most likely need to edit/redo this process for each update to make sure all new/edited options are up-to-date! This isn't excessively relevant yet, but it will be soon enough I imagine.
A complete explanation of the three approaches and how to utilize them can be found in this post, but for the sake of brevity and simplicity I am going to focus on the approach most fitting to the general (or new-to-flashing) user.
Before getting into that though, remember that the usual rules still apply:
- While very much stable in my experience you should be cautious whenever you flash. Make sure to wipe data/factory reset to avoid issues.
- I highly recommend wiping data (or even in extreme cases flashing the UVUBMI7 ODIN file - not so relevant now as we have not been graced with any updates yet, but still it's good to note that you can grab such files via kies or from here - search for N900T and grab the most recent one - registration on the site is required, but is also free) before getting started with any of this. This is just a recommendation - not a requirement - and yes, if you flash an ODIN file that means you will have to reflash a custom recovery before moving forward.
- Tweaked needs to be flashed in a custom recovery - I recommend TWRP myself, but in theory CWM recovery or any based off of it should work fine. This should of course imply that you will need to already have such things in place if you are interested in giving this a try. For what its worth - I have been using TWRP for quite a long time on the Note3 and have been quite happy with the results.
THE SUPER SIMPLE SAFE APPROACH
Well the super simplest of all approaches would be to just flash the main install zip. For those that tried any of the alpha/beta zips from here the result will be very similar to what was experienced with those.
Now, if you want to have a little more say in what gets installed, and you don't care much for the underpinnings of it all, then this is all you really need to know to install Tweaked:
- Download TWO zip files from the downloads post
--- The basic approach prepare install zip
--- The main Note 3 UVUBMI7 Tweaked... zip
- Boot into custom (e.g. TWRP) recovery (if not already there)
- It's STRONGLY recommended to wipe data/factory reset
- FIRST flash the basic approach prepare install zip
--- This is an aroma-style interface where you choose from install options
- THEN without rebooting flash the main Note 3 UVUBMI7 Tweaked... zip
- Nod in approval that while different the process was still easy :)
Just for the sake of comparison, below is what I would consider the general fits-whatever-install-approach-you-chose installation instructions:
THE GENERAL APPROACH
- Backup your current setup/data
- Decide which install route (basic/advanced/default) is best for you
- Download the main installer and put it on your internal/external sdcard
- If you decided on the advanced or basic install route, download relevant zip for said approach
- If you decided on advanced, set up the file(s) and place them on internal/external sdcard as instructed
- If you decided on basic, place zip on your internal/external sdcard
- Boot into custom (e.g. TWRP) recovery (if not already there)
- Recommended to wipe data/factory reset
- If you decided on basic, flash the basic installer zip
- Finally, select and install the main installer .zip you put on your sdcard
While the theme is pretty much stock, I figured I would throw in a few screenshots that show a few minor things. If you want to see the screenshots (and they aren't already showing) just click the "CLICK TO SHOW CONTENT" (or "SPOILER") button!
- REMEMBER - Regardless of what install approach you use you can always use the Modificatinator to un/re/do virtually ANY of the options available to you in the main install! No need to reflash the whole rom!
Even if you don't use it right away, make sure to GRAB THE MODIFICATINATOR HERE NOW so you have it if you want it later!!
- Even though the full install is not really aroma-based (definitely aroma-inspired though) the modificatinator is, as is the zip relevant to the basic approach and the battery aroma, so make sure to thank amarullz for the awesome work!
- Updates that come after the initial release MAY also have a flash-update-only option - whether or not it does just depends on the specifics of the update. NOTE: Depending on what is updated, an update-only flashable may break things if you are themed! I will try to avoid this as much as possible, but all it takes is a minor edit to a framework-res.apk string (for example) to necessitate an overwriting of a file typically quite important for themers (resources.arsc) - just be mindful of this please :)
- As the Note3 is privy to a number of ROMs and kernels, for the sake of simplicity I have included the unaugmented UVUBMI7 stock kernel as an option (fyi no kernel is flashed by default). Thanks to the kindness of @itsmikeramsay there is another kernel option - ColonelX - one can select from as well. PLEASE NOTE: Individual phones seem to vary quite a bit in terms of stability/usability when it comes to kernels, so if you are having any issues like unexpected shutdowns or reboots, freezes, etc. - PLEASE switch to the stock kernel first to see if that is the culprit. That is the one that will work (well it should anyway lol) on any and all phones, so if yours happens to be a temperamental one please be mindful of what you pick and aware of the consequences such picks may elicit!
- This is still pretty much an unthemed rom (if any would like to change this PLEASE let me know - a themer I am not!). There are a few changes done in SystemUI (the pulldown in particular) and framework-res (to allow for system-wide transparency options) - and the hope behind those changes (all thanks to @Alexia Whitehurst) was theme work would then be easier as a result. Even so, this is primarily UVUBMI7 stock-themed - and this is reflective of the thinking behind the whole setup as being stock with some extra options. For those that like flashing various mods and what not, be wary - unless it specifies that it was made to work with Tweaked it likely will not.
Download links can be found further down.
Let me know if there are any suggestions/issues/etc. - also, feel free to stop by the IRC channel Alexia Whitehurst was so kind to make for all of this on freenode - #tweaked. If you don't have an IRC client you can always use their webchat interface here. Happy flashing!
Info on custom install options can be found during aroma interactions or in the installation instructions zip!

Good! As time goes on hopefully there will be an increasing number of themes made SPECIFIC FOR TWEAKED! This will be good, as while there are a number of themes out there that would likely at least partly work ones made specifically for Tweaked will completely work! Below is a list of such themes for ease of reference!
I will update this list as new ones come out, so make sure to check back from time to time! Also - MAKE SURE TO THANK THEM! There aren't many who have done this, so make sure they know the work is appreciated!
Q:What the hell is TSMParts (new option in Settings menu)?
A: A interface for a huge slew of mods and tweaks originally put together by the original members of TSM and inspired by impressive works of numerous others - the TSM Parts interface acts as a control for all of the customizable fun available. There are a large number of options there - so make sure to check them all out!
Q:TSMParts is asking for superuser access?!?
A: Yep - there are some options (one in particular under Miscellaneous settings) that will need it, so make sure you grant it!
Q:I'm having overlap issues with statusbar icons and center clock - what should I do?
A: Yeah - things may overlap, so you will have to either change settings to avoid the issue or just deal with it.
Q:I set a statusbar icon to hide, but it's still there. What gives?
A: The statusbar icon tweaks may require a little effort on your part for changes to take effect. All changes can be elicited with a reboot/hotboot, BUT for most there are other ways:
-- Bluetooth/vibrate-silent/alarm icons/ime -- just change their state (on/off or vibrate/sound, etc)
-- No sim -- if the notification is already active you will need to reboot/hotboot to hide it
-- smart "eye" icon -- changes will happen once the eye triggers
Q:How is battery life on this rom?
A: This is a stock modified rom. As such, battery life will be equivalent to stock were you to be running a similar array of apps and kernel - it really should be no different than stock otherwise (which imo is not half bad really). The kernel and misbehaving 3rd party apps have more to do with battery life than a modified stock rom - at least in my opinion (and experience, though it's limited).
Q:I keep getting messages saying FlashBarService had to close - WHY YOU MAKE BREAK ON THIS!?!
A: There are two ways I've seen this happen. The first is when someone has HUNDREDS of apps installed - and in that case it usually FCs once and is fine after that. The other time I see it is when a particular app is installed that just refuses to play nice with multiwindow or penwindow. In that case, if it can be chased down and isolated, you can add the package name into the fbs_exclusions.txt file in /system/etc/ and all should be well once again. Worst case scenario - disable unlimited penwindow apps and unlimited multiwindow apps and see if things improve. If so, use the pick-what-to-include types of apks and see if the situation improves.
Q:So tethering is a common topic... can it be done with this?
A: Truth is tethering should work on any stock modified rom (with the exclusion of bluetooth tethering, which seems perplexingly to be the property of international-based stock roms only, or verizon from what I hear). The upsell avoidance is what people are really after - and much like others who lay the claim I did a little work in an attempt to avoid such things. That being said, there are one or two common things I've heard that are helpful (and unable to be set as defaults per my inability to figure out just how to do that) in attaining such a goal, and they all involve minor edits to the APN.
- The first is switching the APN protocol from IPv6 to IPv4/IPv6
- The second is adding auth to the list of APN types
I know little to understand why these things should have an impact, but reports indicate they do - so there you go
Q:CRT/fade animation doesn't work in landscape... why?
A: I actually forced this to be the case, as I could not avoid an odd half-screen effect scenario that happened in landscape - which was the result of a hacky fix to FCs that occurred with those animations and rotation changes.
Q:When I toggle navbar on/off there sometimes is a black bar left at the bottom - CAN YOU MAKE IT STOP!?!
A: This only seems to happen when toggled via the power menu and appears to be specific to the TW launcher - and has an easy fix. Open up an app, like Messaging for example, and then close it. The wallpaper will resize and all is well once again
Q:Why isn't the accurate data icon mod working!!?!
A: The only time that mod shows an effect is when you are on the T-Mobile network - I don't believe other networks will see a change in data icon behavior.
Q:What is this LMT thing? How do you use it?
A: You need to check out noname81's thread here for info on that!
Q:Why don't you mention blah blah blah in your FAQ? It would have helped me a lot!
A: My bad - PM me anything you think should be added to this that would be helpful for the general user base!
If you like what I've done... I like sammiches so feel free to buy me one!
As I said, there are really three approaches to installing Tweaked:
----- DEFAULT -----
This is the approach used when one of two things has happened:
- 1) There was no preparation done or found as far as selecting options (i.e. no install.prop found where it should be on internal/external sdcard)
- 2) You are flashing an updated version of the main installer and failed to update your install.prop. Note that in this case your original install.prop can still be found, it just has a .bak added to the end of the file name.
This approach installs a set of options that harken back to the earlier alpha/beta days of the rom when there were no install options - it was just a zip that you flashed and that was it.
When you flash the main installer zip as-is and it will give you a default setup after installation - at which point you can then reboot into recovery and flash the modificatinator (see downloads post here) - which is still aroma-based.
NOTE: For the next two approaches please be aware that the process will likely need to be redone with new versions to make sure you have access to all available options!
I will try to keep changes to these files minimal, but changes are inevitable, so make sure to stay up-to-date with the version you are flashing, as otherise you will likely get the default install! ALSO - with these approaches you can place the TweakedInstall directory on either the internal or external sdcard. That being said, in general if you have a TweakedInstall directory on BOTH your external AND internal sdcard, the files in the external sdcard directory will be chosen over those in the internal sdcard directory. Furthermore - it is VERY important that you DO NOT RENAME ANY OF THE FILES OR THE DIRECTORY! If you do you will likely get a default install when flashing the main installer (not the worst thing, but still).
----- BASIC -----
This is the approach that was discussed to some extent in the "SUPER SIMPLE SAFE APPROACH" in the first post. This approach utilizes the aroma installer, but it doesn't actually install anything. Instead, it creates and correctly places one of the files referenced in the advanced approach for you. On the surface it will appear quite similar to what you might see regarding aroma, but trust me nothing is being flashed (outside of one file being written to internal/external sdcard). You only need to do this once, unless you later decide you want to change your setup or you are flashing an updated version of Tweaked.
Again - THIS DOES NOT FLASH TWEAKED!
----- ADVANCED -----
This approach requires changes you will have to do, and therefore needs a little reading and preparing ahead of time. In order to help things along, I've put together a zip file (see downloads post here) with instructions and needed files - make sure to read the... well, the README! The contents of that readme file are below:
--- From the READMEFIRST-INSTRUCTIONS.txt in the InstallInfo.zip file ---
# HOW TO CUSTOM INSTALL USING ADVANCED APPROACH: #
1) Decide if you will be editing text files on the computer or the phone
- regardless of where you do this, the result must go in a specific directory on your internal/external sdcard (see below)
- if you use a computer to edit, make sure it uses the Unix-style end-of-line character (you can use Notepad++ on a PC)
- Not all text editors work as you need them to if doing this on the phone - I have only tried it using the built-in text editor in Root Explorer
######## THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND A SOURCE FOR SIMPLE MISTAKES - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! ########
2) Extract the TweakedInstall folder
- Inside are four files - the main one of interest is install.prop
3) Open install.prop and read the instructions
- it is on this file you select options
- this is similar in idea to how it was done in aroma
- ALL you are doing with this is changing the numbers that come after the = signs
- DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE! ONLY NUMBERS!
- Follow the instructions for what each number means for each choice
4) Complete any other OPTIONAL file edits per how you want to install
OPTIONS INCLUDE (these are for the more advanced users around - THEY ARE NOT NEEDED AND CAN BE IGNORED):
- If you opted to further debloat beyond available options and have set dangertweak to = 1
- edit the applist file with the apk name that you want removed
- ONE APK PER LINE
- see baseapplist.txt for a list of apk names that are included on /system as "default"
- If you opted to keep some pre-existing system files and have set savelist to = 1
- edit the savelist file with the full path to the file you want saved
- so for example if you wanted to save a script file called 02ForExample that was in the init.d folder, you would enter
into the savelist file
- ONE PATH PER LINE
5) Make sure the directory along with your newly-edited files are moved to your sdcard if not already
### IMPORTANT: THIS DIRECTORY HAS TO BE AT THE ROOT OF YOUR SDCARD (INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL)!! ###
### IMPORTANT: THE NAME OF THIS DIRECTORY MUST NOT CHANGE!! ###
### IMPORTANT: YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! ###
6) Boot into recovery and flash the main installer zip
The edited install.prop file (and optional ones related to it) being kept in the TweakedInstall directory on your sdcard will make it so you won't need to do any choosing the next time you want to flash the main installer. You can always come back to or reflash Tweaked exactly how you have set it up with no extra effort!
--- End READMEFIRST-INSTRUCTIONS.txt -
The hope is that these instructions are as simple but as thorough as possible for those wanting to embark on the advanced customizing approach.
