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

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

I've only been building for about a year or so, 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 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


Updated Nov 25th : Latest builds feature:

Slim6 beta 0.1

Merged changes:


RRO 2 .1(Layers) compatible

root access
power/reboot menu
slim recents (non configurable atm)
use alternate webview if installed
show icon in toast message

Current as of 6:00pm EST (GMT -5)

*** For mako & hammerhead ***

Slim mod (also without floating mode)

(links at right)
Download kernel with FauxSound support:

- Add missing camera and voice search icons for Slim Actions shortcuts

- Slim navbar and Pie::
* Fix small back button custom icon when buttons color is enabled
* SlimDim/navbar code improvements
* Buttons style code improvements

- Translations

- Kill W/ResourceType log spam

Installation and kernels - IMPORTANT:
- Ensure you have latest bootloader and radio from 5.1.x factory images.
- If you come from another rom do a factory reset and wipe system/caches. If you come from the previous build, wipe system/caches.
- After flashing the rom zip in twrp, flash latest slim gapps (zero or mini), then reboot and enjoy.
- Recommended kernels: stock Slim

Tips about some features:
- To disable the recents sidebar background, set it to black then to full transparency.
- If you want to use a navbar buttons layer, disable buttons colorization in navbar settings to avoi small icons
- Adding Slim Actions to Nova Gestures let you set some useful and handy gestures for the home screen
- Slim Pie can be also a good apps launcher
- you can set DPI in Display settings
- with the new Privacy guard, you can disable the automatic start of a specific app
- if you press Volume rocker down till it set the Vibration mode, press it again to enable the new Silent mode (no ringtones and audio notifications)
- if you want to use the No Interruptions mode but still want Alarms, go in the Audio and Notifications settings, then Interruptions, then enable Allow Alarms
- if you expand the volume panel, it will remember your choice also after a reboot
- in the navbar customization settings you can set the buttons glow color if the default white is too bright for you.
- switch on the screen with double tap (enabled in kernel Adiutor) - switch off the screen from lockscreen with double tap on status bar or the lockscreen itself - switch off the screen from the home with double tap on statusbar or the home itself (just add a Nova Gesture, then link it to the sleep Slim Action).

Build additional features compared to stock Slim (Please read it before asking where to find a setting):
PS: this list also contains links to all commits if you want to cherry-pick them:

Slim MMS updated apk (with support for the rom built-in blacklist feature) (thanks to @Garrykd ):

PS: if you have problems, call A-team or clean flash.


Some goodies:


Quick tutorials:

Old Slimkat build:
Additional Slimkat features:
+ 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.
+ Removed the white camera icon in the lockscreen when the camera widget is disabled.

Some old Slimkat github commits if you want to check the source or build by yourself:

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 4 (Mako), Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) and Nexus 7 2013 (Flo) 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.

Current Builds : Based on SlimLP 5.1.1 0.7 Beta

Merged commits can be found here

Builds can be found here. (Custom builds and stock Slim builds are now separated.)

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 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!!!

SlimPop v1.0f (Nexus 5 Hammerhead)

Version 1.0f

- Substituted the stock kernel sources with ElementalX (v. 2.10) by @flar2
Sources for lp5.0 and lp5.1 are here:
- ROM compiled with UberTC 4.8, Kernel compiled with UberTC 4.9 (Tnx @Cl3Kener)
- Doze: substituted the sensors library to activate Ambient Display (Tnx @myfluxi,
@Yank555, @kagwind)
- Added IT translations to Doze, Dialer etc but Profiles (I'll do that too)
- Bunch of AOSP and generic bugfixes
- QS: Added Profiles, Screenshot Tile
- Option to show four tiles per row
- Slim Hardware Key Rebinding are back

A nandroid backup / clean flash is highly recommended, a wipe cache is MANDATORY due to the change in the toolchains.

Known Issues
* Trying to add Torch as a lockscreen shortcut will result in Settings to break, not yet fixed.


- Powered by SuperSU (included in the build)

SlimSaber LP with AK kernel for OnePlusOne

Hi all, I will post my SlimSaber/AK builds for the OnePlusOne here.
Huge thanks to @fusionjack and @ak for their great work.
My intention is to stay very close to the original ROM and kernel (can't think of anything I would want to change)
Currently the only difference between stock SlimSaber and this build is the kernel.

Both ROM and kernel are build using the Uber toolchain (ROM 4.8 TC, kernel 6.0 TC)
