SlimKat was one of the first few released right after the Official Kitkat released. As its name implied, it has the smallest footprint and yet it has some of the cool stuff. I plan to port it for a long time. Although there are still issues in my Kitkat roms, I want to add this to our list. Enjoy!

New bluetooth patch can't turn off.Flash this bluetooth-patch2.zip in recovery will fix it. Gool luck!
New bluez doesn't work on 4.4.4. A patch is needed. If bluetooth is not working, flash this Attachment 3089546 in recovery. Gool luck!
No more update now so this is the final release. Slimkat 8.20. Enjoy
It is the outraging and encouraging monment for Hong Kong. The protest for democracy is ongoing. Difficulties show what men are!
I returned home for changing and refreshing. It's been too long for an update and Slim is now 8.4.
Slim is now 7.2.1. In this build, I add the performance settings to advance settings. In GPU settings, a new option Mali_use_vpll is added. This enables the frequency lock of mali and is the way to add frequency steps. Stock is disabled. Turn it off will return to stock values.
goo.im takes a few minutes to show and I can't display the files in AFH. I don't know why hosts always give me hard time...
Just before the WC Semi-final, I updated SlimKat to 4.4.4r1. Haven't test much but SlimKat behaves slim and stable as always.
Slimrom is persistance. I was thinking about 4.4.3 but seems a bit too far.. Slimkat is version 5.1 now!
In this build, I fixed the Dashclock from Slim. I mainly worked on the missing pieces of i815. Light sensor is fixed. i815 can enjoy auto-brightness now! Working on mobiledata but with little progess.. IR is enabled in kernel. Can't find any material for IR support in platform but Smart IR Remote is working. Smart IR Remote is a great app. It deserve a few dollars!
Guess what? IR works for p6800 and most likely p6810 too! I remove the cover of my p6800 and IR works perfectly with Smart IR Remote. I can control my TV...
Anyone have guts can remove the cover and drill a hole at the right center edge...
Note: Not every p68x0 has the sensor. Open the cover with screen facing down. If you see a board with a tiny led (that's the sensor) at the center of left edge, congrat you got the sensor!
This Slimkat 4.6 would be probably the last one from Slim. HWA for openGL is enabled. Camera and Maps are working now. DeskClock widget FC is fixed by porting from Omni.
That was a productive week. After a few sleepless night trials, the rotation flickering is fixed! There was actually two issues. Rotation on some apks like the browser cause screen deformation is another. Digging through tens of files, I finally fixed it! Slim is now 4.1. Just like other Kitkat ROMs, it is almost come to an end. I'm glad to say: All the major issues are gone now!
Bluez may take some time to become stable. PA is in beta6 not complete yet. PAC has beta now but not allow to publish. This weekend, I prepare the device trees for SlimKat. They have done a good jod, everything is ready in an hour. Just patched a few things like WiFi and telephony and the rom is out!
AFH may take longer to upload...
