back-to-n0t3; Bring the larger fun to the flagship


/* Introduction */

Galaxy Note 5 firmware port over to Galaxy S6.
If you're wondering what's up with that name, Google back-to-n00t.
I just named it after that.

/* Info */

Galaxy Note 5 firmware port over to Galaxy S6.
Why do this? Because optimizations and other finishing touches are very different from the Galaxy S6.
I'm already noticing way better memory managements and performance from this port.

You need Note 5 firmware ready custom kernel along side this ROM!
Latest arter97 kernel supports this kernel.
Tell your favorite custom kernel developer to rebase their kernel to Note 5 or S6 edge Plus sources.

Debloated
De-KNOXed
Odexed, zipaligned, uncompressed

/* Known issues */

- Camera : RAW capture & exposure time control & manual color temperature K control on Camera PRO mode is not working.
These features are added at Note 5 and something hardware related must have to do with it(such as image processing).
Our Galaxy S6 Camera libraries cannot understand such options, thus force-closes.
I'm not planning to fix this. If it force-closes repeatedly wipe Camera app's data.

- "Information stream" and "Night clock" is not working and I'm not planning to fix this as this requires me to mess around the kernel.

- "Advanced NFC settings" is not working and will force-close. The NFC itself is functional. This is due to using NfcNci.apk from the stock S6 firmware and I'm not planning to fix this as using the stock NfcNci.apk is necessary for the NFC to function correctly.

/* Xposed */

back-to-n0t3 has a separate version that is deodex'ed and has Xposed built-in.
Xposed framework to Galaxy S6 was ported by @wanam and some other developers including me.
So please consider donating to @wanam.

If you don't use Xposed, I highly recommend installing the regular version.

The Xposed version of back-to-n0t3 has source-built ART Runtime.
Here are some changes that were applied.
- Built with Linaro GCC 5.2
- Built with optimization options including -O3
- Optimize-everything enabled
