There are simply too many people working in the background and foreground to name. None the less THANK YOU for all your help, support and mostly for the good times!!!
Thanks to the SlimRom Team many users have started to create their own unofficial builds for personal use and for others to use, experience and enjoy with their respective unique setup. This thread will provide a compilation of a few SlimRom Unofficial Builds in one thread; in order to provide a quick glance of the various SlimRom updates and a forum to ask questions regarding builds or general question. If you are building some form or version which is based on SlimRom and you would like to be added pls just send me a pm.
The purpose of my build is to have a "naked" version with DPI Set at 440 for hammerhead and bacon. Once my base build has been completed only a very few features will be added ensuring the rom is as close to naked as possible....plug in and enjoy...
Kernels: Moving forward slick_r (based on on Code Blue Kernel) will be used as a base kernel for all future builds on hammerhead, AK kernel for bacon.
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.
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.

Kernel updated with changes to code_blue V376
Updated kernel toolchain to arm-cortex_a15-linux-gnueabihf-linaro_4.9.2-2014.09

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 (they break stuff I like). Usually up to date with slim's merged changes...possibly a few Slim "features in the works" cherry-picked for testing purposes
+ Latest Slim Gerrit commits about "-mfpu=neon-vfpv4" instead of generic "-mfpu=neon" for ARMv7-A Cortex CPUs to gain extra performance improvements
+ Rewritten "Lockscreen wallpaper" and "See through" features (awesome work by @fusionjack as usual, now the code is more robust).
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:
NB: don't enable both features.
Additional features (i just merge the code, credits go to a lot of people/developers/roms, you can see the author of each github commit):
+ Compiled with sabermod4.8 + Justarchi's O3
>Stock Slim kernel
+ Heads up background color, settings are under "Interface>Heads up".
+ "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.
+ Lockscreen notifications, settings are under "Security". Enable and disable "privacy mode" the first time you flash the rom to get it working as expected.
+ 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, 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
As usual, if you wipe caches let the phone rebuild them, just using your apps, after some time it will be more fast.
This is for my personal fun builds. Will try to keep up to date with all the changes I throw into them.

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 and Nexus 7 2013 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.
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.
Almost two months ago, we set out with Pebble to findthree amazing … more
