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 original features:
  • The Real Dark Slim
    • Full system-wide dark interfaces. - If you like it smooth and classy.
  • Custom Shortcuts. Everywhere.
    • Hardware keys, Navigation Ring, Navigation Bar, Lockscreen, Tiles, Notifications etc. - We've got you covered.
  • System-Wide Keyboard Controls
    • Rotation, cursor control, optional emoticions, etc. - You'll be tapping away to your heart's content.
  • SlimCenter
    • Downloads, contact information, system app removal. - More fun than you can shake a stick at.
  • Camera Features
    • Trueview, Smart Capture. - Capture life moments with ease.

Just flashed it and had to go back to carbon.

Had FC in browser, couldnt get it to even open. But no FCs in slim manager or music app.

Couldn't get the quick panel settings to show no matter how many times I try to tap on it (upper right corner of notif bar).

WiFi and 3g was working, camera/gallery was working as well, pretty much those were the only issues I encountered.

It was snappy and real fast, just need to fix the quirks and this could be a really promising ROM.

Did you wipe data if coming from another ROM? And did you install the proper 4.3 gapps?

Yep did a complete wipe (data/csche/dalvik) and formatted system as well before flashing the ROM and the gapps package.

I used the slim gapps linked in the OP.

I tried to clear cache and dalvik but issues remained, I also tried fixing permissions in recovery and same result.

But still, having been able to use it for like 20 minutes I can tell its a great ROM and id like to use it when it's stable for me.

Just installed this ROM! Reaely smooth and nice. Slimmanager works fine, no worries.

Only question is how come google Now does not work when the search button is pressed?

thanks!

Edit: Also, how do i get Halo up and running.
