Changelog
Code:
Current changelog: -- 14 June
- Added build.prop RAM managment tweaks from @mickeyinid and [user=4517211]@Xileforce[/user]. see link below for the thread.
- Removed /system/app/SecuritylogAgent.apk Hopefully it fixes the Knox screen of death.


6 JUNE

-Reinstalled a free things, should return RAM management back to stock.
- Installed 3 minit battery mod. (www.3minit.com)
-----This will likely cause SystemUI FC when typing decrypt password, I can make a non-3minit version if people are interested.
- File size is larger, I used 7 zip to zip it, no compression.
- Messed with floating.XML, trying to get normal settings menu. It didn't work, but I just left the modified file.


29 May 2015

-More bloat removed.
-No more AT&T locker on first boot.
-I hope all the knox stuff is gone.
-Now should show data icons for Canada (I hate the AT&T ones.) --Maybe not, need to figure out what's causing it not to work.

26 May 2015
Deodexed the /system for easy themeing.
Centered the clock
Made the clock disappear when on lockscreen
Erased the battery icon (I use the "show battery percentage" setting)
Erased the AT&T text in status bar when no icons are shown.
Removed the NFC Icon from statusbar.
Removed the AT&T wifi notification.

FAQ
Q: Where is the Kernel? or Where is the Kernel Source?
A: Since AT&T and Samsung have consipred to lock the bootloader, there is not kernel as flashing anything but stock will probably require an Odin flash to stock.

Q: Any way to get just the SystemUI for use on other DeOdexed ROM?
A: Yes, here you go. SystemUI.apk
Any more, you ask, I'll try answer.

Thanks To/Credits @scrosler for extracting the base ROM from the img files, I keep running into issues with setting up a virtual box for linux to extract it. Here is his thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/att-galaxy-s6/development/rom-stock-rooted-g920a-ucu1aoce-t3111327

Small update, I have a semi-useless phone for a few days, waiting on AT&T to send me a new one. Mine currently will only get a signal about 25%-50% of the time. I also have some stuff planned with my daughter this weekend, so I probably won't be doing much until I get my new phone and put it through the paces. I had to put stock back on my current S6, and am lazy and don't feel like flashing my ROM back on just to flash stock in a few days :). I'll still be around and I'll look into some of the things you guys brought to my attention though.

I'm dying to try this, but I'm all pimped out where I am. I dread the two hours to get it where I want, even though I am desirous of your changes... What are the odds a dirty flash would work, coming from Cleanrom? Also, based on the file size, this is largely debloated, is that correct?

Downloading now. I'll give a try.
Awesome. Tell me if it works? I've only tried it on one phone (mine). And thanks for trying it :)

It should work. I dirty flashed from CleanROM 1.1 to this one, and it worked fine. I can't promise anything though of course. You can always back up in flashfire and try though.

As long as you have the OE2 update I would say it should work, but I'm not 100% sure.

It is a bit debloated, mostly I took out anything saying ATT (except the amazon app, I like it lol).
I am able to use it just fine. I downloaded and applied urban theme, then flashed the material dark theme from the verizon forum.

Yep @_Dennis_themers working outstanding great job
I'm looking at some layers (RRO) stuff. was suggested to me via PM. Samsung uses a version of layers, just need to figure out how close to AOSP it is and if some mods can be done to support AOSP layers. Not making promises this will go anywhere, just what I'm currently messing around with.

Hi @_Dennis_ !

Can you pleast post unmodified SystemUI.apk ? I want to mod the battery for @s6freak but because you removed the battery it causes a SystemUI fc :(. Can I ask please where did you mod it ? You can also post just the original unmoded xml/smali if you wish.

Thanks a lot !

Aye, its on my laptop. I can post it tomorrow evening. I changed the values of the battery height and width in an XML file....I think it was the dimens.XML I believe the original values were 15dip. Like I said I'll get you the file tomorrow.

Oh c00l that's not a problem to change at all. Beside that any other mods to SystemUI ?

Just center clock as described by ticklefish in the link from OP. And I removed a line about the carrier from the same time as the center clock (status bar.XML) The section commented out in there about Knox was causing systemUI fc if left in, so I commented it out. Otherwise that's all I think I did in systemUI.

    So, I'll be busy for a while. I'm getting ready for over half a year away from my family due to work. If anything major changes I'll try to update but I am going to be honest, I just tried the ROM by @edgarf28 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3119968) and it has more options and is much more debloated then my ROM. I will probably use his as it has everything mine does, and more. It's a bit of a pain to set up (aroma sucks on flashfire) but it's easy to do if you can ignore the screen flashes while in the aroma script. Once in the ROM it's amazing. I may try to pick back up in a few months once I get settled in and stuff, but we usually work 13-14 hours a day so no promises.

    I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement it means a lot and once I'm back some time next year I'm sure I'll be doing some work on whatever phone I have at the time :)

    Great rom. I agree with everything @skylinegtr116 said. Thanks Dennis

    Thank you. I am glade people are enjoying it.

    Beta 4 is posted, XDA froze, so it is on Mega again. Also put link to just SystemUI.apk in the FAQ.

    So these guys have made some great progress with the RAM management, I've tried it on a stock rom and it worked wonders. Will be flashing back to this rom though.

    According to Reddit Post #80 has the most luck with values.
    I'll ask if I can use it in my ROM, but even if I can't I've applied them personally and am happy.

    @_Dennis_, I don't think my problem is rom related. I've heard and read that the slowing down of the s6 is a common issue. For the past couple of days my phone has at times, slowed down substantially. The keyboard becomes very slow and so does opening apps. I've read that wiping cache can help but is there something else I can do that will have better results. FYI, I did take the latest ota before rooting and flashing any roms.

    Is it mostly the keyboard? Try disabling the swipe options. That usually helps to me.

    On a side note, I've implemented the RAM management hacks in build.prop. I'm going to do some more debloating (hopefully remove the Knox warning) and repackage the ROM tonight.
    @s6freak I probably won't get to a full S6 edge ROM, but I'll break out the SystemUI for you and you can just swap it into the deodexed ROM in the edge section. Should provide all the goodies.
