Unofficial SlimKat build -
Rom built with SaberMod 4.8.4 toolchain
Fast, smooth and stable
I proudly present SlimSaberKat.
SlimSaberKat is built from SlimKat source with SaberMod 4.8.4 compiler and "JustArchi's ArchiDroid Optimizations" V3 build optimisations like O3, strict aliasing and many more to make the ROM even faster and smoother. If you want to see all optimization flags set for building this ROM, have a look a look at this commit, line 73-83.
I could cherry-pick some commits ahead from SlimRom team or patches from other repositories if I find them useful.
If you want to know more about build optimization and the build flags used to build SlimSaberKat I can advise you to read this post by @JustArchi.
SlimSaberKat ROM comes with Alucard's great AOSP kernel.
I will follow the weekly and stable builds of the official ROM and if there are interesting commits I will try to make a midweekly build.
I'm not responsible for any damages on your device.
