Welcome to UltimaAOSP
The aim of this ROM is to deliver a Nexus-like experience with many optional mods laid on top. Your device will be AOSP stock until you activate a particular mod.
There are some enhancements and fixes to the original source, that do not detract away too much. I develop and use this ROM as my daily driver.


If you are coming from ANY other base or source, please factory reset and wipe /system

Code:
UltimaAOSP v1.1.1 Valhalla
  • Fixed libchromewebview.so and other related problems – this fixes the Google Search and GMail, etc, issues showing web pages.
  • Fixed the Battery Text colour on the Battery icon resetting to white after a reboot.
Full Changelog can be found here: http://ultimarom.com/roms/ultimaaosp/changelog/

  • Theme chooser in Email, Contacts, Dialer and Calendar (this is a big job. Will take me some time)
  • Battery bar
  • Quick Settings toggles + left or right drag down options (this is a big job. Will take me some time)
  • Custom Carrier label
  • Fix FC in Phone when choosing CDMA
  • Disable Camera sound option
  • Toggle "smart radio" mode, use 2G when screen is off

  • FC when selecting "preferred network mode" - Some items on the list cause a force close. Phone, signal and other functionality is fine
  • HDR mode does NOT work on the camera.

Hey @Kryten2k35, glad to see you on a solo project on our s4. Does this include your themed apps? One question...why do you use Supernexus as a base? I mean, it was a one shot rom, not updated for long time (never used it though). What about brood AOSP?

Exactly what I was thinking, anyways, it's his decision what rom to use as base
Device: Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505)

Latest Development:

Roms:
AOSP v4.4.2 (KVT49L) from source for I9505 (Github)
- Cleanest ROM available for i9505. along with up-to-date stock kernel, also forms a perfect base for ROM developers.

Apps:
Galaxy S4 Glove Mode App (Playstore link)
- Do you want the Glove Mode of the S4 but your ROM doesn't support it? Use this app to enable/disable it easily.

Latest Scraps:
Proprietary Lib Cleaner / Silent proprietary libs / Live Thermal Monitor / GIT Conflict Fixer


Projects in development:

broodROM KitKat "Aiming for perfection"
- Custom ROM with really high standards, more info soon

For sources you can visit my Github. Or take a look at all my projects

I did see your code base after I'd already forked Supernexus. Though, I chose Supernexus because it has multiple device support (mainly S3 and S4, which I own). Looking through the manifest, most of it is AOSP with a few items from CyanogenMod (kernels, etc) so this is now more up to date than Supernexus anyway.

If you don't mind me pinching commits that provide fixes in the future (with credits in my commits, etc) then that'd be cool

EDIT:

It seems like we have pretty similar aims
