Lite version of stock firmware: UK I8160XXLK7 (built 30.11.2012, changelist #1214896).

Rooted with SuperSU v0.99

The ROM is for ODIN flashing and it won't increase your flash counter.
There's also a ZIP version for CWM/TWRP.
You can always add CWM and custom kernel by ADB and dd command also without increasing the counter so.. make your own decisions from now on

Apps added:
  • AppWidgetPicker v1.2.3: groups widgets in selection screen
  • HoloLauncher v1.2.8: fast and light ICS style launcher, alternative to TW Launcher

Installation:
1. Download and flash stock LK7 ROM:
United Kingdom (sammobile hotfile)
2. Download and flash lited LK7 availible in two versions:3. Check if I bricked your phone.. (just kidding )

Side notes:
  • Use 7zip to unpack downloaded files (http://7-zip.org/)
  • Use Odin v1.85 to flash (https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B9G...WYtalVMVFdBbWc)
  • USB Debugging in Settings->Application->Development must be ticked on for proper rooting
  • Flashing stock LK7 and lited LK7 wont remove your apps and files. It just reflash the system partition.
  • I've removed google apps (gmail, youtube, maps) so if you use them just download them from the market.
  • Try using Holo Launcher which in my opinion is superior to TW Launcher.

ToDo:
0. Ideas?

FAQ:
1. Will this ROM void my warranty?
YES! But you can revert to stock and the phone will look as a brand new and will revert the warranty.

2. Will this ROM increase my flash counter?
NO!

3. I've got a LK7 firmware and a custom kernel right now. Will I have to reflash the kernel after flashing this ROM?
No. The kernel remains intact as you only flash the csc and system.

4. I've got many apps installed right now and I don't want to loose them.
Upgrading the firmware with ODIN doesn't format the system partition, it only 'repopulate' it with the 'new' files so all your settings, sms/mms, apps and other stuff will remain intact.

5. I see some bloatware like 'Google books', you said it was lite..!?
This app is only in specific CSCs and I can't remove it without voiding the samsung signature thus breaking the CSC procedure during the first reboot after flashing. You can remove this app yourself (i.e. TitaniumBackup).

TIPS:
If you want a REALLY clean system then you could make this VERY complicated procedure:
[Req: rooted rom, adb and odin 'installed' on pc, phone connected to pc by usb]
1. enter recovery (turn on the phone with VolUp+Home)
2. on pc:
adb shell
su
wipe all (disregard the warning about /etc not being empty)
exit (exits su)
exit (exits shell)
adb kill-server
3. select 'reboot the system' in the recovery and enter download mode (during turning on VolDown+Home)
4. on pc: flash my rom with odin
5. wait for reboot and live happily with CLEAN system

or for CWM/TWRP just format data/cache/system partitions

Looking for answers:
1. How to decrease the img filesize?
I've removed more then 100mb and the size is still the same even after compressing, weird...

2. That's all for now

Great to see that we have an other 'custom' rom. It's a great base to add a theme, other tweaks,..

You can always deodex those apps that has been left. Also you can make this ROM flashable thru CWM or TWRP. Please do not add any apps/themes/transitions. This ROM is a GREAT base for anyone who want to play on his own rules with modding. Anyway... dobra robota!

You can add Init.d support support to your ROM.
I tested this script on my phone and it works.
Here you can find information to manual enable support for Init.d.

Will try with init.d, why not.
As of themes/apps/transitions i'm adamant about not including any so don't worry

Regarding CWM:
My idea was to create light rom, easy to flash (odin) and without any fuss with commands in adb/recovery/terminal. Also the "NO" status of the flash counter is a big issue for me since we haven't got any way to reset it as of now and the warranty is a must with todays electronics.. unfortunately

Oh, and deodexing... forgot about it since I don't use themes

You are a genius. GENIUS.
Sine my counter is @15 most of this is not very important for me, but this tweaks to /system/build.prop are just great.

Phone has speed up twice - at least (I'll check battery life later).

So thank you veeery much

Man, chill, it's just placebo i think 'cause those tweaks are really minor. Maybe you got something screwed with the system before the flash or the bloatware was choking up your phone.
Anyway: your welcome and dzięki
