New ROM deodexed de-knoxed "SPH-L720_OD2_deodexed.zip" (see post #6 for the link)


Thanks to archikitchen,
[KITCHEN] ArchiKitchen - Android Kitchen (WIP) [Linux]


JoelDroid's Lollipop Batch Deodex utility
[Tool/Utility] JoelDroid Lollipop Batch Deodexer V 2.5 [Updated 18 Apr 2015]

, and muniz_ri,

[ROM] 100% Stock L720_OD2 - 5.0.1

I have been able to adapt muniz_ri's OD2 zip for the jfltespr to a deodexed and deknoxed ROM zip.

To install the new ROM is use standard ROM zip methods:
1. copy the zip to the extSdCard
2. TWRP recovery
3. Go into recovery mode.
4. Wipe Dalvik, Cache, system, data.
5. Perform factory reset before installing zip
6. Install zip.
7. Reboot.

I made no changes in muniz_ri's ROM except to deodex the system folders in JoelDroid's deodex utility, and run the deknox utility in archikitchen.

This has been tested on SPH-L720 (jfltespr) .

As soon as I have download link I will post it below (see post #6)

Here are screenshots of the apps installed in the debloated ROM as well as some of the SystemUI and framework-res mods in the status bar (these mods are in the separate links, not in the debloated ROM.

5-22-2015 NFC apk added to repository:
If you want to enable NFC, then download the NfcNci.apk. It should be copied to the system/app/NfcNci folder. Then reboot the system.

I am not sure. I had installed muniz_ri stock rom first before I installed my zip. If you don't get radio or wifi you could odin the modem.tar from his website.

Yep, I did last night to check it out...... works well. I could not get titanium backup to pull the root request pop-up though....... it just stayed on "asking for root" forever....... but I'm not blaming the rom just yet. I wanted to flash it again today and try again.

If anyone else sees this same thing let me know.


EDIT: I googled this issue and came up with a few fixes to try........ it involves uninstalling Titanium and SuperSu, clearing caches and reinstalling both.

So it might just be an isolated incident on my end..... NOT a rom issue. I would be curious though if anyone else sees it happen.
