I don't know if it does work on J500F or any other model. If you want to try, just remove assert lines in updater-script, BUT i'm not responsible if you brick your phone!
Is working on J500F model. Thank you @the-bomber for confirmation!

INTRODUCTION:

Hello!
I'm Robert, an satisfied and happy user of the Samsung Galaxy J5 ( J500FN), but somehow bored of it since it doesn't have any custom rom or kernel, in few words, xda support. At begin, i was planning to build Cyanogenmod or AOSP and an custom kernel with minimal features, but i lack the knowledge to do it, but it's not impossible, just that i have alot of headache and i'm not that happy with that. I was also planning to do an custom rom too, with many features and many themes available, this is easier, but again alot of headache. I can't promise i would do these, but i may try again to make a better custom rom.
So, here is Stock ROM Advanced. It's just an simple rom, nothing more yet. Check out the features section for more informations.Screenshots attached ( switch XDA theme to 2013 or 2015 theme from bottom of page and click on Screenshots tab if you can't see them.


Please share this XDA thread since Galaxy J5 doesn't have it's own xda forum...



FEATURES:

Quote:

- Based on firmware J500FNXXU1AOI1_J500FNDBT1AOI2_J500FNXXU1AOI1
- Pre-Rooted with SuperSU (v2.66)
- Busybox installed (v1.24.1-osm0sis)
- Zipaligned all system apps (for better utilization of RAM) - What mean this? <--- click
- Deodexed - What mean this? <--- click
- Debloated - removed some samsung apps and some other unecessary apps for more RAM, more internal memory available and less wakelocks (so more battery). More info about removed apps in post #2.
- Knox removed
- Faster boot & shutdown
- Faster than stock? You tell me

That's all the features it has now. Is just an custom rom based on stock rom, with some minimal changes, but improving the daily experience, at least for me. I can't promise, but maybe in future i will make it more than an simple rom, with more features. I repeat, can't promise it. I have decided to add more features in next version.


DOWNLOAD:

Stock_ROM_Advanced
<<< click. Just mediafire link for now.


DO NOT MIRROR THE ROM. IF YOU WANT AN MIRROR, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL UPLOAD IT TO THE WEBSITE YOU WISH since i have good network! Thank you!




INSTALLATION:
(it's actually easy to install it, but i've wrote it this way because there may be new people to XDA which just wish the rom and doesn't want to bother by searching to how to do it)

Quote:

1. Download the rom and put it on your External SD Card ( make sure you have enough space).
2. Download this TWRP recovery: TWRP recovery by @aapav01 - more info about this recovery at CREDITS
You can also use TWRP 3.0 by Nick Verse which is fully working. Big thanks to him as well. If you didn't know yet, he also made a KERNEL for our J5
3. Download ODIN program. I'm using v3.09
4. Enable the OEM unlock bootloader option at developer options (if you can't see Developer Options, then go to Settings > About phone and tap 7 times build number).
5. Reboot your phone in download mode by keeping pressing Power button + home button + volume DOWN button at same time for few seconds. After an blue screen will appear, press volume up button.
6. Connect your phone with usb cable to your PC.
7. Open ODIN program and an number should appear at ID:COM. If it doesn't, then make sure that the phone usb drivers are installed.
8. Click on AP or PDA ( according to the version of odin which you downloaded) and choose the TWRP recovery you've downloaded and click START. Wait until the process finish.
9. Now go to TWRP recovery by keeping pressing Power button + home button + volume UP button at same time for few seconds.
10. Choose Wipe, then Advanced wipe and choose Dalvik Cache, System, Data and Cache and then Swipe to wipe.
11. Now choose Install and go to the place where you did put the ROM and choose it. Wait till installation finish and DON'T REBOOT YET.
12. Flash GAPPS. I use Open Gapps, ARM 5.1.1 pico version. http://opengapps.org/ . It's XDA thread is HERE .
13. Wipe dalvk cache & cache.
14. Reboot & WAIT 5-10 minutes until it boot!. Only first boot is longer. NOTE: When you reboot, if it ask you for SuperSU choose "do not install".
15. If you followed all the steps carefully, then everything will be OK. Enjoy

Flashing GAPPS is required because if you don't you will be stuck at setup wizard. This issue is probably caused by one of the removed apps. However, it won't cause any other problem. So, flashing GAPPS is a must right after you flash the rom, but you can remove them if you wish after you finish Setup Wizard.



CREDITS:

@SuperR. for his nice and useful kitchen.
@aapav01 for the TWRP recovery. Big thanks to him because without the recovery, you couldn't even flash the rom!
@osm0sis for busybox
@Chainfire for SuperSU
@Force me, for doing this small rom



Pressing the THANKS button does give me some satisfaction/motivation

CHANGELOG:

Code:

BUGS:
- WiFi. Two guys confirmed me that WiFi isn't working, but is working fine for me.
WIFI got working! Read HERE and HERE.


Flash LINARO KERNEL and WIFI will work. Thank you @Nick Verse for the kernel and @swistakkk1 for confirmation.


Maybe is not fully debloated, but i didn't have any issue after i've deleted these apps. i can remove even more to make the rom lighter, apps which doesn't suit for me, which some people would want them... I may add AROMA zip to let people choose what apps they want to remove.

FAQ / TIPS
1. How do i install Xposed Framework?
Follow these steps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...30&postcount=2

This is a list of confirmed working modules until now:
Code:
- XPrivacy
- AppOpsXposed
- Boot Manager
- Obb on SD
- APM+
- Gpm notification seek bar[L-M]
- ScreenOffAnimation
- Android Phone Vibrator
- Flat Style Bar Indicators
- Greenify
- NoSafeVolumeWarning
- Notification Manager
Thank you:
@22rp420 @nov01 for confirming some xposed modules!


If you know more xposed modules which are working on our phone, share with us!


2. My phone is running slow / has lag. Why?
My phone haven't lag or ran slow never and i'm using Power Saving mode all the time.

Use Greenify app to hibernate the apps which are running in background. Maybe you don't want Facebook or other apps running in background, eating RAM and battery while you use your phone or while your phone is in idle/standby. Then Greenify become useful. It does help gaining some more available RAM and also battery.

Also, don't use any Task killer because it is not necessary. It just does the opposite: make the phone run slow.



3. My battery drain too fast!
People use phone different. Everyone. My best SOT (screen on time) was 13 hours. Maybe you can or can't achieve that SOT. It all depends of how you use the phone.
The biggest battery drainer on Android are:
- Facebook app, facebook messenger
- Google Services

Greenify does help gaining battery too.
You should install BetterBatteryStats app to see what is draining your battery.

Personally, i'm using facebook in browser and i enable play services when i need them. I disable them with Tasker app by running some shell commands. Of course, you can do this with init.d too or some other apps. I will share the shell commands which i'm using later. I have maximum 10 minutes wakelocks in BetterBatteryStats widget and my battery doesn't drain even 1% per night.

Did you flash it on J500FN?
I haven't experienced this problem. I will look into this.
Are there more people who experienced this? Please let me know.
