Hi all, These are basically ras_vanilla builds ( from rascarlo`s latest sources) with my own custom modifications.

History
Well I am a purist and seek for minimalism. I love stock android, but with certain modifications that i like for improvement in functionality. But the specific set of features i wanted in rom , i couldnt find it in a stock rom. So i decided to build one myself with everything i needed. I have been building my own custom vanilla builds for a while and thought i could share my build with the community that has given me so much. May be there are people who seek these aswell and it might help them out a bit

Why Ras_vanilla base ?
Simple, it has all the magic carlo optimizations under the hood, i was certain i couldnt get the same performance using stock aosp sources. I actually thought i ll use RasSaber sources or SaberMod sources to build, but decided against it. To make these vanilla build, there were two options,
1. Easy way, make it look like vanilla by making settings, etc look vanilla, but there would still be a lot of customization commits and i dint like the idea of this.
2. Remove each and every custamization commit to make a true vanilla build. This is very very time consuming. so no.
And i thought it would be better the just build up from ground.

Features
1. Volume rocker wake - always on without user configuration ( so that it looks stock ).
2. Network band selection fix in *#*#4636#*#*
3. Built with 4.9 toolchain and -O3 Cant stress on how quick it is
4. Clear all button in the recents menu.
5. Advanced reboot menu and screenshot in power menu.
6. Lots of tweaks.
+Check the change logs

FLASH
latest TWRP is higly recomended
- full wipe if coming from a different rom, else skip this step
- wipe cache
- wipe dalvik cache
- flash zip
- flash gapps
- (opt.) flash kernel since it comes with stock
- reboot
- log into google and let it sync
- fix_permissions (in terminal if your kernel supports the script, else in recovery)
- (opt.) reboot

Gapps
Use rascarlo`s Gapps :

Kernels
Any kernel should work just fine. I usually use just the stock kernel. But franco, SaberMod and Trinity kernels performed very well for me imo.

Thanks
AOSP - For android.
CM - Incredible amount work that they have put to make android so much more better.
@rascarlo - For one of the best best rom i have ever used. And for his sources.
@sparksco - For help when needed and Brilliant rom that is just unbelievably quick and fast. Please consider donating to this guy, he puts unbelievable amount of work on his tool chain and lets buy him a beer

If, customization is what you seek, either of their rom is an excellent choice.
All others who have helped me in their own way to make this happen. Thanks.

To @MBQ_ for the space in his server to host the roms so that you people have unthrottled and fast downloads, Thanks man. Please consider donating to him so that he doesnt have to spend money from his pocket to keep up the server.

In stock aosp sources, selecting band using service menu, I.e *#*#4636#*#* cause fc, fix for that to select particular network band, eg. USA, Europe band, etc.

Update :
1. Clear all button in resents menu.
2. Advanced reboot options and screenshot in power menu. - Is screenshot needed ? Or will i remove it ? opinion please.

Also, will someone please attach a cross for clear all button in recents menu instead of the current one ? I will include it in the next build.

Will add navring shortcut custamization in next build, seems like a lot of work.
