- if you go from 4.1.2 or older I recommend format internal card, if you don’t do it, on internal card were by me still data (DCIM etc...) and you can’t normal access them on 4.3, but even without formatting you can later move them from old folder to new one in 4.3 with Aroma file manager , for me easer way without format. Also is possible, that files will move automatically – also me happened
- be sure, you have EFS backup!!!
- create NanDroid backup to external card!!!
- download the *.zip file
- reboot to Recovery, recommended is only PHILz!!!
- ROM isn’t full wipe, but is recommended if you get from any older or you have FCs
- wipe cache and Dalvik cache is automatically included
- select ZIP file and install
- don’t use re-root after installation inside recovery - you don’t need it, if you'll do, then you need install again SU apk from market
- reboot and wait and wait ...
- enjoy it
- if you ever flash 4.3 or 4.4 via Odin or updated from OTA you have new Bootloader.
- if you bought your device and you dont know what bootloader you have, turn off your phone,reboot to download mode (hold power + volume down +home buttons) and when is there Knox flag 0x1 you have new and you are warranty off. When Knox flag is there 0x0 you have also new bootloader, but you are still in warranty and when you'll flash any custom recovery or unofficial firmware via Odin, you'll have then Knox 0x1 and you will be warranty off - so it's on your deciding. When isn't in download mode any records about about Knox, you still have old bootloader (btw congratulation ) and don't ever flash via Odin 4.3 and higher firmware - it's a pity.
PS: exit from download mode: hold pressed power button cca 5 seconds
Xposed: if you use Wanam Xposed, after install Rom reactivate Xposed Framework installer.
If you new installed Xposed, open Xposed installer and go to menu "Framework" and choice "Install", then reboot your phone, then open Wanam Xposed apk and activate module Wanam Xposed and next Xposed modules in Xposed installer (menu "Modules"), reboot . That's all, open Wanam Xposed and set, set, set .....enjoy it.
Stock kernel: Wifi works only on new bootloader. If you will have problem with Root, try make update and apply Superuser via market (then open SU and update binary and disable Knox and enjoy), or Re-root into Recovery (only PhilZ is recommended), Then you have to again install and apply Superuser apk from Market.
On new bootloader after installation i recommend you make status selinux permissive via WANAM XPOSED OR SELinux Mode Changer .....when you will not make this status, are expected problem with root
Note 4 Launcher - AccuWeather widgets: if you got any FC (is expected from Accu without full-wipe), clear data and cashes in app manager, reboot
Note 4 Launcher: "Apk not found with swipe to right site" ....you didn't choose this item in Installer/Theme and apk/quet down, reistall rom or install Flipboard apk from Market and My Magazine apk from here or unpick this option in Launcher's setting
S5 MMS apk FC: someone got FC, when installed real S5 phone, then install Rom again without S5 Phone, defaultly will be installed S5 Themed with AutoCallRecording - Description is also in the Aroma Installer! Or you have to go full-wipe or double full-wipe.
S5 dialler UNWANTED "voice guidance" for caller-ID while in-call: phone/settings/call/answering ending calls/ uncheck voice control or follow this
Add Font menu in S5 Setting: you can set fonts by adding the fonts to the quick settings in settings. Go to settings and then tap menu and edit quick settings and check the box for fonts and save
UPSM apk: you can add any custom apks tu UPSM, but it needs clean data and cache of Eemergencymanagerservice and Emergencyprovider everytime you change anything in UPSM apks manager
Coloured UPSM and no possible Screen mode (standard, dynamic, professional photo and movie) : on AGNi you have to disable MDNIE HIJACK in AGNi control app
Extra-mos, 3 dot menu in S5 UI: if you don't like it, follow this post
Music shutter in AGNi Kernels by screen off: use kernel AGNi without any sound mod. You can also fix it by using intelliactive (not recommended since it doesn't hotplug) or lulzactiveq.
The NewPure Audio Mod: This mod hasn't graphic equaliser! There is built-in PureEQ equaliser set up to 3-5-5-3-8. If you want use compatible graphic equaliser use DSP Manager from Rom's Aroma installer. DSP manager is supported with the mod and quality of sound isn't at all disappeared , or you can use also this ViPER4Android FX, but with this apk you lost setting of PureEQ (sound will be worse), but you can there set up again it on 3-5-5-3-8 (all 2x there) and the sound of PureEQ is again back and great .
Next possibility is use Google Play Music, there seems is sound quiet the same, but I don't recommend it to use with graphic equaliser Music FX (quality lost) and instead you should again flash DSP Manger from above or use ViPER4Android and in the Setting/My device/Sound set up ViPER4Android as default.
Also is possible only use some graphic equalisers from Market but they aren't supported directly from both Apks
Worst variant is use Stock Player, there is biggest loss quality of sound.
Camera: if you have problem with Camera follow part "Notes"
Boot Sound: if you want activate boot sound, rename in system/media/audio/ui/PowerOn.ogg.bakkk to PowerOn.ogg
P.S. did you forget something install? Or you have installed something more, nothing happens, install Rom again, select what you want add or remove .... Rom isn't full wipe ;)
If your camera doesn't work use Fix (Patch) in Aroma Rom installer. Or flash Camera Patch - thanks @MaHo_66 . For interesting here are also older instruction: follow this (thanks @Hbohd and @P$T), if you don't have incriminated file flash relevant Stock kernel from HERE or Rom with Stock Kernel - Wifi doesn't work with old bootloader, then take photo and short video, then flash again your Rom without full wipe with kernel which you like. If your camera still doesn't work :) follow THIS or flash some Rom 4.1.2 (via Recovery or Odin) take picture, grab and backup incriminated files, then flash this Rom and put them to data/cwm. Don't forget backup your SlimISP_XX.bin for future. Problem with camera have only some users - Samsung issue.
