Hello Everyone. This post will contain my builds. A little about me. I've been a member of XDA since 2008(as you can see on the left) Started with a HTC Touch and released a few things for the phone before moving to android. I've been with android since the I9000 and have built custom roms/kernels since then(not really original work just modifying for my needs). In general i love everything about technology and am starting to look more at android app development. So here is my build.

Download links:


To be updated With SlimLP info when i have a little more time

SlimKat Info:

All builds feature LSN and network speed/activity in status bar. I build for Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Samsung Nexus S and Nexus 7 (2013). I'm also willing to build for other devices just send me a PM. The nexus 5 build uses g_smooth kernel which is based on code_blue kernel by @eng.stk and the nexus 4 kernel is built with linaro. I Also sometimes pick other things and they will be noted in build announcements.

The only devices i have are N5 and N7(2013) so if you encounter issues with any other device PLEASE report them right away

thanx to : the entire slim team @eng.stk for the great kernel @apb_axel for UKM & Synapse @Christopher83 for the tool chain

Hiya everybody it's nice to be here and nice to see you all

I've only been building since April with a slow machine that I wasn't even sure could handle the job. It has and I haven't looked back since. It's been a fun ride so far and I've learned an incredible amount. All thanks go to the Slim community. Without their support and guidance I probably wouldn't have even tried...so I owe you guys a lot

I am currently building for Hammerhead and Mako...

My builds are just vanilla slim builds for now, no fancy toolchains or anything. Usually up to date with slim's merged changes...possibly a few Slim "features in the works" cherry-picked for testing purposes

Download: https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/garrykd/Builds/

Updated December 17 : Latest builds feature:

SlimLP Alpha 0.9


Current as of 8am EST

Slim changes Include:

New blobs
Updated fingerprint
Strip down sounds (dirty flashers beware of missing sounds)
DSP is dead.....changed to audiofx (thanks cm)
A lot background fixes

Plus, for mako users:

Latest build update: 14 Nov 2014

Slimkat Mod 8.12.2 for Nexus 4 (mako) and Nexus 5 (hammeread)

Download: https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/ezio84-xda

Tips of the day:
  • Try the new screen recorder, now you can choose the video bitrate or record the audio from the mic. When the record is stopped, a screenshot-style preview notification is showed. Settings are under "System tools > Screen Recorder". You can start it with Power+VolumUp or enable an entry in the power menu.
  • Change the volume panel timeout under "Audio > Advanced settings".
  • Enjoy Slim Launcher new features
  • Enjoy Lollipop fonts
  • Enjoy Lollipop 60fps bootanimation

Project name: frameworks_base
*ezio84-xda - Revert Floating mode

Project name: vendor_slim
*ezio84-xda - Bump to 8.12.2 (no more floating mode due to Chrome issues)

Project name: packages_apps_Settings
*ezio84-xda - Fix account icon size thanks to @track909 and add missing ones

Recommended kernels:
Mako: Stock Slim (super battery and good performance) - Semaphore (good battery and super performance)
Hammeread: Stock Slim - Linear - Code Blue (similar battery and performance)

Additional features (mostly a code merging, so credits go to a lot of people and developers, you can see the author of each github commit):
+ Compiled with sabermod4.8 + Justarchi's O3, upgraded from stock Google/Slim SQLite 3.7.11 (2012) to SQLite 3.8.6 (2014), switch from FloatMath to Math in framework_base, stock Slim kernel.

+ Lollipop fonts and bootanimation

+ Embedded Screen Recorder. You can choose the video bitrate or record the audio from the mic. When the record is stopped, a screenshot-style preview notification is showed. Settings are under "System tools > Screen Recorder". You can start it with Power+VolumUp or enable an entry in the power menu.

+ Show which apps are being optimized when rebuilding art/dalvik.

+ Battery saver: switch to 2g when screen off. If your carrier has 2G support you could save some battery enabling the power saving mode (when display is off) under Settings > More... > Mobile networks. If you need LTE and the network mode doesn't switch to 4g, you have to disable this feature.

+ New TRLS mode. Best way to handle it is to enable the automatic trds switch (daytime or light conditions). After a clean flash, switch TRDS on/off one time to activate it.

+ InCall Vocal Recorder. When a call is opened, a record button appears, click on it to record the call. TIps: enable the external speaker to record the interlocutor's voice too. In the Dialer settings you can choose the audio file format. In the call history you can play all recorded calls with a specific contact.

+ Simple Explore by DF1E instead of Slim File Manager (same small size, material interface, a lot of fixes and updates).

+ Lockscreen notifications, settings are under "Security". Enable and disable "privacy mode" the first time you flash the rom to get it working as expected.

+ Pocket mode, settings are under "Security". Screens goes on when you extract the phone from the pocket, goes off when you put it back in the pocket.

+ "Lockscreen wallpaper" and "See through" features. To enable "See through" go to "Security>See Through", to enable LsW go to "Display>Wallpaper>Lockscreen" and choose your image then apply a blur effect if you want it. Please don't enable both features.

+ Disable heads up in lockscreen, useful if you have already enabled lockscreen notifications; settings are under “Interface > Notifications & QS”.

+ Disable 2tap2sleep on the statusbar, it’s a really nice feature but some users would like to disable it when using a cover and the screen is accidentaly double tapped; settings are under "Interface > Status bar".

+ Network upload and download speed in the statusbar; settings are under "Interface > Status bar".
When it can be useful? E.g.: "Right now I'm uploading the build with my phone to Androidfilehost, and I have Chrome in background while writing on Tapatalk and hangouts. With the upload speeds shown in the status bar I can check if the upload process is still going fine."

+ Advanced download manager (expand the downloads notification and you'll be able to pause/resume or stop them); enabled by default.

+ Floating mode (EDIT: removed in 8.12.2 due to a Chrome issue), long press on a notification in the status bar or on an app in the recent panel and select “floating mode” to open the app in a popup window. Note: if you want to set this mode permanently and manage it in a better way, you can install Floatifications from the Play Store (enable “launch app in halo window - supported rom” in its settings).
(PS: the first time you open whatsapp, youtube stops the video, next times it will continue playing).
You could say “wtf do i need this on my small screen?” Well, you are playing “Tnt” by Ac/Dc on Youtube, your wife send you a message “bring the dog pee or no dinner today”, and you want to reply “Sir, yes Sir” without stopping the music: open Whatsapp in floating mode and reply to your wife, Youtube will continue playing in background. Same thing when gaming.
NB: The xposed module for the floating mode is more customizable, the one in the rom is very basic and needs improvements. I hope it will get better in the future because can be useful not only to have youtube playing in background: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=322

+ Removed the white camera icon in the lockscreen when the camera widget is disabled.

As usual, if you wipe caches let the phone rebuild them, after using your apps it will be faster.

Some goodies:


Quick tutorials:


Some github commits if you want to check the source or build by yourself (you can also fork my repos https://github.com/ezio84?tab=repositories)
- To add the Screen Recorder:
Here are the commits:
[1/3]: https://github.com/ezio84/frameworks...37e2b14fe2b4b7
[2/3]: https://github.com/ezio84/packages_a...6bb6b4c9505364
[3/3]: https://github.com/ezio84/vendor_sli...f704c78f66956c

The line to add in your local manifest:
(you can add the original ChameleonOS project if don't need the italian translation: https://github.com/ChameleonOS/andro...ScreenRecorder)

I added the Screen Recorder preference screen to my "System tools" menu, if you want to move it just cut these lines from "packages/apps/Settings/res/xml/slim_advanced_settings.xml":
            android:fragment="com.android.settings.slim.ScreenRecorderSettings" />
and paste them in another menu xml file.

- To add Lollipop fonts:
Add these lines to the local manifest:
  <!-- Switch to L fonts -NB also need to change files in fwbase data fonts- -->
  <remove-project path="external/naver-fonts" name="platform/external/naver-fonts" />
  <remove-project path="external/noto-fonts" name="platform/external/noto-fonts" />
  <remove-project path="external/sil-fonts" name="platform/external/sil-fonts" />
  <project path="external/naver-fonts" name="platform/external/naver-fonts" groups="pdk-cw-fs" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/noto-fonts" name="platform/external/noto-fonts" groups="pdk" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/fonttools" name="platform/external/fonttools" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/google-fonts/coming-soon" name="platform/external/google-fonts/coming-soon" groups="pdk-cw-fs" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/google-fonts/dancing-script" name="platform/external/google-fonts/dancing-script" groups="pdk-cw-fs" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/google-fonts/carrois-gothic-sc" name="platform/external/google-fonts/carrois-gothic-sc" groups="pdk-cw-fs" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
  <project path="external/google-fonts/cutive-mono" name="platform/external/google-fonts/cutive-mono" groups="pdk-cw-fs" revision="refs/tags/android-5.0.0_r1" />
Then go here https://android.googlesource.com/pla...r1/data/fonts/
click on the small "[tgz]" link at the top and put downloaded files in your /frameworks/base/data/fonts/ after removing existing ones.

- To show which apps are being optimized when rebuilding art/dalvik:

- To switch from floatmath to math in frameworks_base:

- To add battery saver 2g mode when screen off:

- To add the Omnirom Screen Recorder, ready for Slimkat:

- To add inCall CM recorder:

-To let SlimCenter notify the user about updated versions of your build:

-To add "Lsw" and "see through":

- To add "advanced download manager":
For the download manager, you need:
- this commit in frameworks_base:
- then fork this omnirom project to your github:
- then use your fork instead of the slim default one (.repo/default.xml), e.g.:
 <project path="packages/apps/Settings" name="ezio84/packages_apps_Settings" remote="github" revision="kk4.4" />
 <remove-project path="packages/providers/DownloadProvider" name="SlimRoms/packages_providers_DownloadProvider" />
- done (you don't need the [2/2] commit).

- To add "floating mode":

- To add "Lockscreen notifications":

- To add "Disable heads up in lockscreen":
https://github.com/ezio84/packages_a...b132042a081ffa <-- EDIT: add manually only the code in res/values/slim_strings.xml, other 2 java files are not needed because those lines are now in another place -see following commits)
https://github.com/ezio84/packages_a...e28f4576469426 <-- EDIT: not needed, merged in the official Slim code
https://github.com/ezio84/packages_a...87533db3303d3e <-- EDIT: already added in the previous commit now

- To add "Disable 2tap2sleep on the statusbar":

- To add "Network upload and download speed in the statusbar":

- To remove "system updates check" in the about screen:

- To remove the white camera icon in the lockscreen:

Hello all! Just let me give a big thanks to the Slim Team for providing such an awesome ROM to work with. And a big thanks to the community, especially the builders, that have helped me get to where I'm at.

I currently build for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013, and Moto G as those are the devices I own.

About my builds: My builds are mostly Stock Slim with a few cherry picks for things I want to have. Usually these are things actively being worked on by the Slim Team that I don't want to wait for to be merged into the next weekly/stable. As I learn more I am going to try to include things from elsewhere, and maybe build with different kernels and such.

Current build : SlimKat 8.9 with Status Bar Network Speed, and Lock Screen Wallpaper.

Hammerhead Builds : AFH or Dev-Host

Flo Builds : AFH or Dev-Host

Falcon Builds : AFH

And to any of those looking to get into this whole building thing, let me just say if you can flash a ROM you can build one. For me it started out not wanting to wait for Jenkins for the new weeklies. And I've slowly learned to add a few things here and there. Slim has an awesome community ready to help out, just like they did for me.

What I'll post here will be basically the Slim stock with some cherry-picks of features I like and that are not (maybe yet) merged into the rom itself, plus as many optimizations as I can - as long they do not harm the rom stability in any way. Features and stability, i.e like the original one

Thanks to the rom's developers for this wonderful rom, to commit's authors for sharing their work with the community, to @Garrykd for the beautiful logos, to @ralpheboyo and to the Builders Collective, especially to @ezio84 who first introduced me to the intricacies of git, for giving me the opportunity to share my fun with others. Kudos to all of them!!!

New build SlimKat Weekly 8.20 (Nexus 5 Hammerhead)

ROM Compiled with latest SaberMod 4.8.4

- JustArchi's Optimizations V3
- Lockscreen Wallpaper with Blur and/or Transparency
- Boot screen showing apps' name while android upgrade

New build SlimLP Alpha 0.8 (Nexus 5 Hammerhead)

ROM Compiled with latest Linaro 4.8 and Optimized with -O3

- Stock, totally

A new build with latest patches is on its way. Also please notice that latest SlimLP zipfiles doesn't flash on Multirom without some changes to the updater-script, see the main thread for details.
