This will be the lightest G900T TouchWiz ROM you ever will see! Just 569 MB
G900T version ROM Details:
- Based on the latest Samsung Stock G900T UVU1BNH5 firmware (Base build date: 27-8-2014)
- Stock UVU1BNH5 Kernel (build date: 27-8-2014) & Latest KToonsez kernel
- De-bloated ROM to 569 MB!!
- All the standard features of Stock Android will work, so it's like an AOSP ROM with the TouchWiz launcher & SystemUI
- Unique separate Aroma Add-on Package which includes all the removed Samsung 'bloatware' apps, so that you can flash at any time your missing app back... SEE POST #2
- ROM still includes the original Samsung Gallery, Camera, Dialer, Messages, Music, Alarm & Calculator apps
- Latest Google Android L Keyboard (You can install the Samsung keyboard with the Aroma add-on package from post #2)
- Latest SuperSu & BusyBox integrated
- KNOX fully removed
- Native Call Recording
- T-Mobile WiFi calling & VoLTE support (VoLTE needs the latest NF6 or newer firmware)
- Mobile Hotspot without any limitations (removed provisioning checks)
- Optional working Private Mode (with the Aroma add-on package)
- At every boot the FsTrim command will be excecuted, to keep your Phone smooth and the internal memory fast!
(Make sure you enable the included Universal Init.d app for this, or use any custom kernel!)
- SD-card write permissions
- Odexed (to keep it ART Runtime compatible, and to keep 100% original stock files = faster)
- ART Runtime works (Make sure you haven't the Xposed Framework installed when using ART)
- Option to add or remove the secondary symbols to/from the Samsung Keyboard
- The T-Mobile Carrier apps are removed from the ROM, but you can install them back with the XtreStoLite Aroma Add-on package (post #2)
- Carrier IQ apps free
- A few build.prop tweaks, like: Fewer WiFi scans, Faster Boot animation speeds, Disabled logging, Disabled call ring and Proximity delay.
- A few CSC tweaks, like: Enabled Call recording, Enabled camera shutter sound button & Enabled secondary symbols on the Samsung keyboard & Add 10 Extra Quick toggles to the notification panel.
- 100% Original Stock files (No modded APK, Framework & lib files), this gives you the most stable, fastest & smoothest experience.
- In the Aroma installer of the ROM you can choose between 5 different mods:
- Advanced Reboot Menu
- Remove Safe Sound warning
- Remove S-Finder & QuickConnect buttons in the Notification drawer
- 3Minit Battery Mod (choose between 1070+ battery icons)
- Modded Messages app with Screen On/Off toggle, Backup/Restore function, No auto SMS-to-MMS conversion & Increased Message limit from 100 to 1000 messages per hour
(screenshots are from the international version of this ROM)
- See Post #2 for the Aroma Add-on Package, so that you can choose which Samsung Apps / functions you want back.
You can use this Aroma add-on package at any time after flashing this rom (So you can first use the rom barebone and look for yourself which app/feature you want to have back)
- The ART runtime is still experimental, and I don't recommend to use it. You will also get slightly better performance with the Dalvik runtime.
- The aim of this ROM is to keep it as close to the stock firmware as possible. Because this way the ROM is the most stable you can get, and also you don't have any mods that can have influence on the performance and/or battery life of the ROM.
Also you can tweak the interface on your own nowadays with Xposed Framework plugins like: Wanam Xposed, GravityBox & Xposed G-TouchWiz.
- With the Xposed G-TouchWiz plugin you can remove/hide the S-Finder & QuickConnect buttons in the notification panel.
And with the 'Galaxy S5 Widgets' Xposed module you can get widgets on your lock-screen.
So please don't ask in this thread if I can add an mod for those functions.
- I strongly recommend to install SVoice with the Aroma add-on package, even if you don't use SVoice, just to disable the Home key SVoice launch delay in SVoice. (Svoice -> Menu key -> Settings -> De-select: Open via the home key)
After disabling this option, the home key will react much quicker when you press it.
You can disable the Svoice app if you want after this (Settings -> Application Manager -> All -> S Voice -> Disable), but do not delete the app data of it.
- I recommend to set all the 3 Animation settings to 0.5 in the Developer settings menu, for much faster animations (and experience).
- Enable the Developer Options (Settings -> About Device -> 8x tap the Build number)
- Go to the Developer Options (Settings -> Developer options)
- Scroll down, and set:
'Window animation scale' to 0.5
'Transition animation scale' to 0.5
'Animator duration scale' to 0.5
- Enjoy the faster animations!
- All the Google Play Store apps are NOT included in the ROM (or Aroma add-on package), you can download those by yourself in the Play Store.
- If you choose to use the ART runtime, then the first reboot after you did choose the ART runtime will take a very long time to boot up. The bootscreen shows up longer than usual (around the 3 minutes), and after that the 'Android is upgrading...' screen will take a few minutes)
- Ktoonsez (for the amazing Ktoonsez kernel)
- LuigiBull23 (for the great Ktoonsez profiles)
- _alexndr (for parts of the installation script & the native init.d support)
- BeansTown106 (for the 'remove tethering restrictions' mod)
- DevVorteX (for the 'remove tethering restrictions' mod in v.1.3)
- HyperX- (for the HyperX camera mod)
All the Beta testers of course!

- Optionally: Flash the Aroma add-on Package, to restore some of the removed Samsung Apps/Functions that you want (You can do this anytime!)
I would NOT recommend to restore system apps or app data of your apps with Titanium backup, only the apps themselves.
Restoring App data or System apps can cause many problems. (This applies to any ROM!
See Post #2 For the Aroma Add-on Package, which includes all the removed Samsung apps and functions from the ROM, so that you can choose which feature/app you want back!
(check the MD5 of your download before flashing)
Full-Wipe is always advised, and needed if you come from another rom
