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 SlimRoms team 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.
-> Slim Recents : A complete replacement of the AOSP recents screen to allow better multitasking, along with marking favourite apps.
-> 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.
-> Notification reminder : An easy way to quickly set short reminders to show on the notification drawer.
-> Slim dialer : A full replacement of the official Google closed source dialer with added features.
-> Camera : Discover SlimTeam unique Camera feature...

INSTALLATION : To install this ROM on your Transformer you'll need this checklist to be all checked
- Latest ASUS bootloader (10.6.1.27.5) [TF300T] : 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...
- Unlocked bootloader : by using dedicated ASUS software...
- kitkat enabled custom recovery : regular / Philz CWM or TWRP (my preference goes to this last one...); You'll find a download link below for my TWRP builds...
- 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 )
NOTE : SlimKat is an Android 4.4 ROM so if you want to activate ART instead of DALVIK, simply go to 'settings/developer options' and select ART as runtime BUT please do remember that ART is still under heavy development...
=> This ROM is DEODEXED : if you want to ODEX it (better battery life and better system wide responsiveness), then i do recommend that you use @MatrixDJ96 ODEXING script available HERE Thanks to him for this great tool !
- TWRP Recovery
=> You will find my TWRP page over HERE...
- SlimKat ROM
-> SlimKat RC2 for TF300T/TF201 Build 8.0 (DEODEXED) (2014-09-25) <= UNTESTED BY MYSELF ! Anyway feel free to report any bug back in this thread
-> TRYOUTS : none for the moment...
- Dedicated TF201 CyanogenMod kernel (for use with any AOSP based custom ROM) <= ATM if your TF201 does not boot with embedded kernel, please flash any other custom kernel..., like @ebildude123 GEASS / @hardslog GRIMLOCK), thank you !
-> Custom CROMBi-kk kernel for TF201 [AOSP] (2014-xx-xx) [TRYOUT] <= TO COME ! Will be built from TF300T CM-10 defconfig file with UBERUTILS GCC... should be better than embedded one for Transformer Prime, ONLY !
-> In SlimKat root access needs to be activated like this : go to 'settings/developer options' and disable it, then go to 'settings/advanced settings/superuser' and set root access to 'apps/adb' (this will re-enable 'developer options' AND you will gain root access)
