Announcement from RErick: AllianceROM Lollipop International Base

The Alliance Team is proud to present AllianceROM for the AT&T Note 3. This is the most customizeable ROM available for ANY device. Millions of different on the fly theming options, more so than any AOSP based ROM. If you are tired of having to choose an xposed module and reboot only to see the effect isn't quite what you like, then I challenge you to try this.

The Possibilities Are Endless...

Anyone else that I missed
I do this because I love doing this, not because I am trying to make money. I have a career in the petroleum industry, this is just a hobby. There has been many countless hours put into this project by more people than just me. This being said, I will NEVER ask for a donation, but they are always appreciated. If you like this project and would like to contribute in a different way, I always need testers. Also, clicking the thanks button works just as well

New install instructions:

1) Download ROM zip and verify MD5 sum, place on your internal or external SDCard, it doesn't matter which.
2) Make any backups you need with Titanium Backup or whatever you use while this is downloading
3) Also make sure that you are on latest KK SafeStrap (version 3.72) AND you are on ROOTED NC2 Firmware
4) Boot into Safestrap Recovery via app or hard reboot
5) While in Safestrap first choose "Boot Options" And Then Select "Stock ROM". Activate it. If you are already on the Stock ROM Slot and it is activated AND YOU HAVE A BACKUP, or if you ALREADY have a stock backup move on to Step 7.
6) Click the back button on the bottom right to get back to the main screen, and then choose "Backup". You will want to make sure all 3 partitions are selected to backup. You can choose internal or external sdcards (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THE EXTERNAL) by clicking Where it says "Storage: xxx SDCard (xxxx MB)" towards the middle of the screen. Choose where you want to create the nandroid (backup) and select "OK." Now just swipe to make the backup. Once the nandroid is done continue on to step 7.
7) Back out to the main screen using the back button in the lower right corner of the screen. The letters at the top should be in red and say "ROM Slot: stock"
8) Now choose "Wipe" and it should pop up the wipe screen. It should say "Factory Reset" and on the next line "Wipes Data, Cache, and Dalvik (not including internal storage). If it doesn't, hit the back button, if it takes you back to the main screen, go back to "Wipe" until you see this message. Now just swipe to Factory Reset.
9) Now you should have a clean stock partition that is ready to have your ROM flashed. Hit the back button until you are back at the main screen, and now you will choose "Install."
10) Now find the ROM zip, you placed on your phone, either on internal or external SDCard and install the ROM. Once the ROM is flashed, you should reboot the device.
Now that you have made a backup, if for whatever reason you want to go back to that ROM on the stock slot, you can boot back into recovery, and choose the "Restore" button and restore the backup to the Stock slot.

In preparation for new releases with out my modded ROM Customizer, I am going to post it here for those that want to flash AlliamceROM and are currently on another KK ROM.
Remember this is only for coming from another KK ROM and want to run this ROM. Download and install like a normal app.

Remember the reboot option in this app will only work if you have my reboot to safestrap mod already baked in current ROM.

Black Glass theme for the Note 3 base. Flash in recovery.

A new boot animation , Most Holo has been removed and replaced by flat black and dark greys.Apk's included are framework-res, twframeworks, Black Dialer (fixed thanks @ lacoursiere18 ... my buddy Brian lol) , Black Contacts, Inverted Glass Stock email, Black Multi Service Tray, Black Clock Package, Job Manager, Black Glass Calculator, Inverted Splanner and SPlanner Widget.

Theme includes Black Glass. Some will show no matter what. For the Menus to show up:
Go to Custom Settings/Themes and Colors/Backgrounds/Popup Dialogs Then de select enable colors.
Go to Custom Settings?Themes and Colors?Backgrounds/List Menus Then de select enable colors.
Go to Custom Settings/GeneralSystem/Dialog Popups and select TW Dark.

Black Glass Release 2 Here


Flashable Dialers:

Flash in recovery

These zips will ONLY change the Dialer button images, the tab images at the top, and in some cases the divider lines found in Contacts and Settings unless otherwise stated. Of course those top tabs are the same ones that show up in Settings and various places in the rom. Nothing else will be touched. They can flash over the stock,Alliance Theme, or my Black Glass theme. I'll be adding more as I get them made.

Release 2 haz an improved Inverted Email (although not complete), less Holo, and a lot fixes to crap only I would care about.

Back To Alliance Theme

Clear Glass Dialer

Glass Plate dialer

Batman Dialer (No Tabs)

Batman Dialer (Tabs and Toggle Background)
To get the toggle bg unselected gradient and select OTA type. You can set the color to whatever you like by changing the circle color.

Captain America Dialer (Tabs and Toggles)
To get the shields to show as toggles:
Go to Custom Settings / Notification Panel / Toggles / Toggle Icon Style ... Select Switches.
Go to Custom Settings / Themes/Colors / Background Colors / Toggles / Background Style ... Select Off
Go To Custom Settings / Themes/Colors / Linked Colors and unselect Toggles .. Then to Unlinked Colors and set Toggles to white.

Flashable Toggle Switches
Flash in Recovery.
These will replace only the "Switch" option in the Alliance CS Toggle Type

Horizontal Lighted

Verticle Toggle

Horizontal Rocker

Vertical Rocker

Back to Stock Alliance Switches

Old and Outdated like Bubba

Final Milestone Version Here 12-10-14

Alliance Manager Themes

Place zip in the Alliance themer folder on your sd card. Select the theme with the Alliance Manager.


The Grinch

I get the same issue with WIFI. I had to reenter the password to connect to the WIFI after a reboot.

Also, for those in the family who are trying 4.4 for the first time. With the s5 settings that RErick used, you have to change the view of the main settings page to List View in order to see the options to change the default font and font size in the display settings. Just an fyi.

Use the root browser so that it asks for SU rights.

Thanks RErick....Alliance manager doesn't fc when choosing theme now.

Gmail force closes when opening a picture attachment.

This ROM looks amazing. Going through all the options is somewhat overwhelming.

I'll keep you up to date on any other issues I see.
