Default [ROM][SM-T520][10.1 WiFi][4.4.2] GraveD's ROM V2.1

GraveD ROM V2.1

Custom ROM only for the Galaxy Tab PRO 10.1 WiFi (SM-T520)!

What's this ROM about?
This is a cleaned and slimmed down stock ROM!

Why?
I like my ROM's clean, small and fast.

So what exactly did you do?
- Removed MOST Samsung/bloatware/KNOX/Google. apps (~170 .apk's where deleted)
- De-Odexed.
- Rooted.
- ZipAligned.

- Greatly increases speed with multiple enhancements. (CrossBreeder/AE/Pure Series)

- Added Dolphin Browser / Ad Blocker for Dolphin Browser.
- Added Nova Launcher.
- Added Apollo music player.
- Added AOSP Keyboard.
- Added AOSP Calculator.
- Added Xposed framework.
- Added WPS Office

Is this a ROM for me?
Depends, This is a very clean and slim ROM.
This is a great base to start from! It offers a plain and simple base.
A good and fast browser/Office and some standard apps (calculator, email client, camera)

Hugh speed improvements vs the stock ROM.

How to install? - Attention if you proceed your warranty is void.
Have a custom recovery, Like TWRP!
Make sure you do ADVANCED WIPE!!!
Flash it like you usually do.

Known issues:
The Google search widget should be removed, since it's not working (Google search is removed(can be re-downloaded trough the play store)).

Download
V2.1: SMT520_GraveD_V2.1 (631MB)

V2.0 (older): SMT520_GraveD_V2 (641MB)
V1.0 (older): SMT520_GraveD_V1 (605MB)


Extra:
Since this is my first ROM that I share, ALL ideas/requests are welcome!

For an even better result, install Cybertronics v5 Kernel!
Flash his Kernal just after flashing my ROM.
I haven't found out how the aroma installer thingy works yet
If you have flashed his Kernel before, no need to do it again.

Another 10.1 ROM enters the fray! AWESOME.
So punish me for weakness, blame me for everything.
I don't like suffering, I like the sympathy it brings.

Hi,

You won't get the knox warning at boot, at least I don't

I'm already working on providing some of the apps separately, I'll add the email client to the list

That's because that service is not included, I've added it to the third post, Live wallpaper picker,
Haven't tested it, but it should work
