Default [ROM][UNOFFICIAL][RC1] SlimKAT Weeklies [4.4+][TF201/TF300T] Build 3.10 & 4.4 | Updated 2014-04-14 + TWRP 2.7.x.x

SlimKAT Weeklies for TF300T (TF201 compatible)


SlimROMs is a custom android operating system. The main goal is to offer users a slimmed down but still feature rich alternative to other android operating systems.

The entire SlimTEAM work together to bring you this tailor-made beauty straight from Android Open Source Project (AOSP) source code.

All of the sources can be publicly viewed through GitHub and you can stop by the public Gerrit to submit patches of any type.

SlimKAT is the project name for SlimROMs based on Android 4.4 and offers the following unique SlimROMs features :

-> The real dark Slim : Invert the whole ROM including Gapps with one click.
-> Notification drawer and and lockscreen shortcuts : Access your most important apps from everywhere.
-> Custom Quick Settings Tiles : Why just settings ? Use whatever you want.
-> SlimPIE : Based on CM's PIE, inspired by PA's PIE with a light touch of Slim. A true community feature.
-> Camera : Discover its unique Camera feature
-> SlimRecents : SlimTEAM APP switcher (since build 3.4).



DISCLAIMER : Every TEAM mentioned below and myself will never ever be responsible for any damages you do to your device !



ALL CREDIT GOES TO AND ONLY TO :

-> SlimROMs TEAM (ROM tree)
-> CyanogenMod TEAM (device and kernel trees)
-> TheMuppets TEAM (vendor tree)
-> TeamWin & OmniROM TEAMs (TWRP tree)

NOTE : I am not affiliated with any of the teams mentioned above...



INSTALLATION : To install this ROM on your Transformer Pad you'll need this checklist to be all checked ;)
  1. Latest ASUS bootloader (10.6.1.27.5) : if it's not the case IT WILL BE MANDATORY for you to upgrade your bootloader by flashing the latest ASUS firmware to your device...
  2. Unlocked bootloader : by using dedicated ASUS software...
  3. KitKat enabled custom recovery : TWRP HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ! You'll find a download link below Please note that the TWRP file that i bring to you has been compiled by myself along with CM 11.0 SlimKAT sources... flash it with caution (known bugs : factory reset is failing ! But you can use advanced wipe menu to perform a full wipe before flashing the ROM i provide, one user faced a serious split screen bug so far when flashing my TWRP ZIP file from PhilZ CWM recovery : he had to use fastboot to flash PhilZ CWM recovery back !). Please download another TWRP build if you don't feel confident with mine like scanno's one !
  4. My SlimKAT ROM file
OPTIONAL : Any AOSP GAPPs if you want to have Google Play services (I'm using PA-GAPPs micro-modular package for example )

Angry SlimKAT Standard + Extreme Power Packs for TF300T released !

SlimKAT Power Packs





I've re-packaged original SlimKAT Power Pack init.d scripts (Browser2RAM, FSync disabling & ZipAlign) into two flashable .zip files to boost system performance of SlimKAT In addition to them there are all ASUS live wallpapers coming from latest ASUS ROM for TF300T (DayScene + MyWater 1 & 2), AdBlock is included and when flashing these packs, filesystem of your device is automatically tuned (see details below )

-> Standard Power Pack for TF300T : contains AdBlock and Browser2RAM + ZipAlign scripts while ext4 filesystem tuning sets data journaling ON for /data but tunes /system and /cache too
-> Extreme Power Pack for TF300T : contains AdBlock and Browser2RAM + ZipAlign scripts too and in addition it turns FSync OFF (WARNING : this one can cause data corruption...) while ext4 filesystem tuning sets data journaling OFF for /data (combined with FSync OFF; which means that this pack is mainly intended for benchmarking sessions purposes !), it tunes /system and /cache too It features GPU Tweaks : GPU 2D is forced AND software rendering is disabled !

The main purpose of the first pack is to safely improve the user experience on your device while raising improper system shutdown tolerance...

...the main purpose of the second one is to max out system performance regardless to system stability !



PREREQUISITE : Please perform a full NANDROID backup from recovery before flashing it !



DISCLAIMER : I will never ever be responsible for any damages you do to your device !



ALL CREDIT GOES TO AND ONLY TO :

-> @hardslog (this pack is based on his one... thank you !)
-> @sbdags & @lj50036 from CROMBi-kk TEAM (FSync init.d script is coming from CROMBi-kk installer )
-> me



INSTALLATION : Just flash it AFTER a full NANDROID backup, then just wipe cache/dalvik and reboot to system... You can use it with any kernel : embedded CM / GEASS / GRIMLOCK !



DOWNLOADS :

-> SlimKAT Standard Power Pack for TF300T (without ASUS live wallpapers ) (2014-03-25) | MD5
-> SlimKAT Extreme Power Pack for TF300T (without ASUS live wallpapers ) (2014-03-25) | MD5



With Extreme Power pack installed, you can expect benchmarks scores like this (needs to be updated...)



-> Legacy Power Pack on SlimKAT for TF300T RC1 Build 3.9 | GL v2.2RC3 (1800/520 with dynamic FSync disabled) + ART turned on



Have fun with it...


NOTE : These two packs are TF201 compatible !

EDIT : ALL ASUS live wallpapers were not installing correctly so i removed them from the pack until i fix this

Downloading the update and installing today. I love this ROM on my phone. Can't wait to have it on my tablet too!

Any way we can delete system apps with this ROM? *figured it out*

Thank you for giving it a try I truly hope that you will be satisfied enough to use it for some time... in my opinion, it's actual dock support is a significant drawback... i'll try to fix it ASAP...

Yes, you can delete system app easily by using 'Slimizer', it's located in settings -> 'SlimCenter'... third tab
