I updated the link for the stock version, adding in only the TW app bg to clear the smudge.

Ok. I think I have something good to offer up with a big thanks to @jrkruse.

Empty Galaxy is a debloated stock touchwiz rom based on NE5 4.4.2 and is for mdk bootloader. I don't know anything about ss. Heck maybe it does flash on ss but I don't think so, from what I can tell it starts with aroma and I'm too into not using aroma or much of what Samsung offers other than the great specs to look into it.
If you try I hope you find it as stable and snappy as I do

Also I am working on a themed version but that'll take some time.

Hmm... I might check this out. Been looking for a good and simple Kitkat rom to flash on my phone now. This rom might just do it for me. Especially since I'm able to change Samsung's emojis to Google's.

Please do try
the themed version ended up a bust so I'll be uploading an unthemed version with the couple apps added in data/app.
I just read @andybones is working on coming back to the s4[emoji120] . Him getting the M8 was the main reason I put this rom together.
But in the meantime this has been a solid 4.4 tw experience for me.

Yeah, it would be amazing if he does come back into action with an Galaxy S4. I always end up restoring my nandroid backup of his ROM. The only reason I want Kitkat is so I can set my default messaging app as Hangouts and do not have to worry about duplicate notifications. Also, I do not want to deal with any other bloatware. I'll mess with this tomorrow night after work. Is the carrier logo still present?

I hear ya. I'm the same.
Carrier is still present. Really the only changes from pure stock is the reboot menu, the missing apps, continuous rotation on launcher, and the app bg is a touch lighter and no gradient on aosp bg. I use xposed for most ui changes.
Hangouts instead of mms, I guess I got to get with the times.
