By request, I ported this project to the hammerhead. I don't own the device so let me know how it works.

Stripped down AOKP 4.4.2 base, trying to make it as lightweight as possible. ~ 160 Mb zip

The goal is to provide an efficeint, minimal groundwork for users to customize the way they like it.

Amazing battery life.

Base install has only ten apps in the drawer! (see Screenshots section above)

- Rooted

- ROM Control

- Working ART

- Removed -
.. Google Analytics via noAnalytics Remix
.. Stock Apps (Gallery, Browser, see Changelog below for complete list)
.. Live Wallpapers
.. Bootanimations
.. Stock ringtones/alarms/notifications
.. Bloat

- Silent camera

- AOKP kernel

Other optimizations coming!

bareBones download link hosted by XDA Dev-DB (at the top of the thread)

Minimal GAPPS

Current recommendation is Paranoid Android GAPPs package.

BaNKS minimal GAPPs started causing FCs and other issues, so until that's resolved try PA.

Installation Instructions

Make sure you are on the latest CWM Recovery!

1) Nandroid Backup
2) Wipe Data & Cache/Factory Reset (if you experience issues, it's probably due to a dirty flash over an old version)
3) Flash ROM
4) Flash GAPPS (optional)
5) Reboot
6) Enjoy!

Feel free to buy me a coconut water (donate) you find my ROM useful. It would be greatly appreciated!

Good job and will try it out but it's probably going to be moved in development instead of original since this is based on aokp.

Only one ringtone, one notification sound, and one alarm.

The ROM is meant to be stripped down so you can make everything look (and sound) like you want it to, with your own MP3s or whatever.

Loving the ROM, but I'm not sure if it's something to do with it, but I can't use the Google Now Launcher, the one that comes with stock Nexus 5 ROM. I can install it and everything but every time I try to open it, it says that I need an update to Google Search, which is the latest version possible. I've installed about 3-4 other ROMs to test this out and this is the only one I can't use it on.

I'll try this ROM later, looks to be what i'm looking for though as I put all the featrures i want on through xposed so looking for something lightweight. Is this ROM fast? And can I install through TWRP? It only says something about ClockworkMod in the op? Can't wait to try this.
