Using also comfortable Aroma Installer
I'm not maker of this Mods, please don't forget leave there Thanks, before thank you too ;)
Last update 19th July 2014 - compatible with v6.10 and 6.11
Don't need full-wipe and you will not lose data!
Of course using also comfortable Aroma Installer
Please don't forget leave there Thanks, before thank you too ;)
- if you go from 4.1.2 or older or other 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 date will move automatically - also me happened
- bee sure, that you have EFS backup!!!
- create NanDroid backup to external card!!!
- download the *.zip file to external card!
- download to Recovery
- ROM isn't full wipe, but is recommended if you get from 4.1.2 and older
- wipe cache and Dalvik cache is automatically included
- select ZIP file from external card and install
- in menu of installer you choose only what you understand. there isn't nothing important for system stability - is only what we importantly don't need (bloatware)
- 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
Kernels: if you ever before flashed official Rom 4.3 via Odin you have New Bootloader and you should to use AGNi Kernel or Boeffla SELinux Permissive.
Stock kernel is there only for users who have problem with camera or for users on New Bootloader if wants it use without S5 theme (doesn't work Wifi with S5 theme)
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 moduls in Xposed installer (menu "Modules"), reboot . That's all, open Wanam Xposed and set, set, set .....enjoy it.
Wanam Xposed apk - read this only until v6.10, in v6.11 is this solved: with last version is problem keeping our CSC feature and when you e.g. set Disable Airplane toggle mode or Bluetooth, then is after reboot problem with popup toggle of data and is lost possibility use only GSM.
1. for right using and working of Wanam Xposed you have to go to the menu "Advanced" and there unselect "Keep my extra CSC features" than set what you want or leave your setting and reboot - no more problems with popup of data and other setting in in the future.... but, but you'll lose CSC features of our Rom ....that's a pity and better is use 2nd method
2. or set in Wanam what you need, reboot, mount system rw (for example in ES explorer/tools/tap on Root explorer/mount R/W then set system RW), go to system/csc/ delete feature.xml and rename feature.xmlbak to feature.xml, reboot - this step is what I use
S5 Launchers: Widget is possible add from desktop editing :) ...hit the Text "Widgets" (not icons). If you use My Magazine for full correct working install Flipboard apk from market. Wallpaper is possible change only in Settings/My device/Wallpaper
if you encounter FC while changing wallpaper (not live wallpapers) download and flash this SecWallpaperPicker, thanks @sunajkram23 . Grid 5x6 is only by Alphabetic order.
S5 Pro Launchers: if some icons appears on the dock after flashing ...just drag in the Homescreen.
The NewPure Audio Mod: with this perfect Mod is the best for using recommended Smart Player. Sound quality between paid and free version (included in the installer) seems isn't any (in my opinion and experience). Paid version provides more option and tweaks, for comfortable using I strongly recommend it. Smart Player hasn't graphic equaliser! There is really perfect built-in PureEQ equaliser set up to 3-5-5-3-8. If you want use compatible graphic equaliser use this DSP Manager (download and flash - is tested). DSP manager is supported in Smart Player 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 ;) .
If you don't want use paid version of Smart Player 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.
PS. if will be next version of the Rom I'll maybe include there DSP Manager or V4A apk
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.bakkkk 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 primary follow this (thanks @Hbohd and @P$T), if you don't have incriminated file flash again Rom with Stock kernel - Wifi doesn't work with old bootloader, then take photo and short video, then flash again 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 average only cca 10 users JB 4.3 of 1000 usr..
