Default [ROM] Semi-stock/Super-clean/Tweaked/Rooted

I've been learning how to build a custom rom for the S5...
Finally got my first stable version that I'd love to share!

Special Features:
  • Stock Base
  • Rooted - SuperSU
  • BusyBox integrated.
  • zip-aligned
  • Build.prop tweaks for speed, battery, usb debug
  • Removed all Verizon/Samsung apps that I could possibly strip out - without having any problems in settings, etc.
    (Except S Voice - I just skipped including that because it's useless to me.)
  • WiFi Hotspot - WITH NOTIFICATION TOGGLE
  • **** Almost all apps have been moved to /data/app - which means you can uninstall them, not just turn them off.

Replacements:
  • Replaced stock launcher with Holo Launcher HD
  • Chrome replaced with Firefox
  • Messages replaced with Handcent

Includes:
  • AdFree (Root)
  • Titanium Backup


I DO NOT WARRANTY THIS ROM IN ANY WAY.
INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK. DONT HATE ME IF IT DESTROYS YOUR DEVICE.
I've been running it on my device for the day and it's doing great!


Install instructions:
Use safestrap
Any ROM slot should be fine. I know it's not possible currently in safestrap to make a smaller system partition, but really only 2GB is needed for system.
I'd highly recommend a clean slot -- for some reason while testing safestrap wouldn't fully wipe the data partition.

PLEASE NOTE:
After initial boot, you will be sent through the Setup Wizard, as usual.
Immediately following completion of first boot, your phone will "go crazy" for a few seconds. The select wallpaper window will open (dont do anything), then the screen will go blank for a second.
* Setup Wizard may force close. DONT PANIC!! Everything i still working right. Just click OK.
I have set up a One-Time Init script to install the WiFi Hotspot toggle into notification panel, change the default lockscreen/homescreen backgrounds, enable USB Debugging, and to set up the initial Holo Launcher icon layout.


DOWNLOAD LINK:
MediaFire Old Version

Still being uploaded:
Odex Version Does not include Setup Wizard. If you can't live without it, get the old version.

I know there is a link somewhere here on xda where you can download a zip with all the original apks. Check in the Verizon S5 general section.

Found it! Look in OP Here





Note on my ROM, I seem to have forgotten to remove the security policy updates app. feel free to remove it yourself.
/system/priv-app/SPDClient.odex and SPDClient.apk
