The closest to AOSP you can get on a TW Kernel!
AptOS is here to provide a near-vanilla AOSP experience on locked-bootloader TouchWiz devices!
It may not be the lightest, or the most power efficient, but it vanilla aesthetics make up for it in leaps and bounds! Featuring a completely stock set of apps, updated Google Play Services, security patches, and more, it gives you everything you need to flash and go (unless you find the Google Maps app useful in which case we're sorry ).

DISCLAIMER:
I nor XDA is responsible for ANYTHING you do to your device. You are ultimately responsible for accepting the risks associated with flashing Custom ROMs, and if you go accusing me of you being fired because the alarm didn't go off, its not my problem (but I would like to fix the alarm app if it breaks )

Downloads:
Version 2.5-AAT3B-50w7d: https://aptlo.gq/aptosl
Explorer (beta) builds are available from that link as well.
Github: https://github.com/coretechsystems/AptOS-G900A

Flashing:
Just flash normally with FlashFire:
Flash Zip/OTA, Mount System Read/Write

A wipe is highly recommended, but probably not required if coming from stock. Definitely required if coming from another custom ROM (with the exception of X ROM).

Add-ons:
XPOSED:

Model: SAMSUNG-SM-G900A
Code name: klteatt
Android version 5.0 Lollipop
Bootloader: G900AUCU2AOA1
Radio: G900AUCU4BOF2
I currently have:
SuperSU
Xposed framework 65
Flash Fire
Safestrap 3.75

Questions:
Would it be worth while to update to OF3 or keep my Kitkat OA1 bootloader?
Main concern is Losing Safestrap
If installing this rom or the Prerooted OF3 rom can we still install Xposed framework?

Thanks so much for your time and efforts
Still kinda hoping for a MM rooted base rom
