Hola,

Need some testers... Lollipop lickers.

NOW TESTING:

GOLD ROM 1.0 a2: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23991606952599995
Really a well put together ROM minimal theming adds gold text and shades of gold to different stock apps of the phone adds to the visual appeal I think. Its also very very fast. Scored higher in benchmarks than any other ROM I've made or ported. I believe this will be the final public 1st release for US var

Super6 v1 based on Albe95's S6 1.5: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23991606952604733
Beautiful doesnt speak enough to the visual appeal of this ROM. Besides out performing Stock and nearly every other ROM for Lollipop (xcept GOLD) its all S6 ported apps except for a few Note4 apps I snuck in instead of buggier S6 ports. Only kept the flawless S6 ported apps which is everything but camera and I'll be swapping out the phone I believe in the actual public release. need some feedback on this 1 as I'm not completely sure all will have same results

I'll be uploading deodexed-debloated Stock ROMs later today. Along with 4 custom ROMs very soon. Test for these here before public releases are posted in Development section. Please give me feedback on any issues with the ROM and be sure and specify which your using! For now installation procedure is the same as my newest ROM: Echoe v49 found in Development section. ALL MY TESTS WILL USE SAFESTRAP OPTION OR TWRP FOR MDK USERS. NEVER FLASHFIRE UNTIL ITS KINKS THAT CAUSED ME TO KNOX 0X1 ARE WORKED OUT AND IT SUPPORTS AROMA OR SIMILAR INSTALLATION OPTIONS! THE WAY THIS I UPGRADE HAS 0 RISK FOR EVER BRICKING DEVICE OR BREAKING WARRANTY!

Coming soon...
Albe95's S6 Port for VZW!
Albe95's Lollipop 3.1 for VZW!
CarHD Lollipop Port VZW!
Stock Debloated-Deodexed-Rooted Lollipop with Install Options for VZW!
gogolie's gogoDeluxe Lollipop VZW!
GPE 5.0 Port VZW!
a few S5 to S4 Lollipop Ports awaiting permissions to use!
a brand new, sick and ridiculously overboard in terms of options, themes and mods available custom rom I'm calling LiCK for VZW!
A few never before seen US ports of Foreign ROMs!
I'll take suggestions when I'm done with above ROM's all of which have been built once but more time/testing/bug removal is needed before public release. Stay tuned to this thread for updates on these and more!

-thats all for now

Add me to the list of folks anxious to see if you can get a GPE 5.0 for VZW working, especially if it's something that can work with our SafeStrap-limited phones.

GPE 5.0 Port VZW!



Although I really hope you can get this working. I really doubt it... a bench of us have tried, and other than getting a bootanimation to come up, we haven't gotten very far... the issue lies in the fact that Samsung changed the way that the ART runtime works with the Samsung Kernel, and therefore, the Samsung kernel is looking to deal with the Samsung ART runtime, and the AOSP ART just loops at some random error. If we try to switch out the AOSP ART with Samsung, the ROM fails to even boot to bootanimations.

well thats no fun np I hadn't a chance to try the build yet but I literally was about too just running thru my threads answering user questions now... maybe theres hope in @hsbadr Multisystem as a work around or was that as a possible option explored already? I guess they may have to settle for a Hybrid if thats the case. But I still have confidence no one even thought GPE was a possibility on i545 till i brought out those 4.2.2 ROMs and proved it was indeed possible with SS. Then over course of last summer when I found all the International GPE ROM's that would boot and were converted into what we have for options now on 4.4.2 -4.4.4 til now we've either found work arounds for issues or fixes. I was literally about to release a fully working gpe 4.4.2 rom with mtp,wifi and a killer aroma installer with a sh*T load of options before lollipop came out of nowhere... I'm doubting the your negative attitude np ;P looks like @Joe-Tech was able to get a 5.0 GPE ROM to Boot. From looks of it based off Echoe GPE. I'm willing to put down $50 says we have at least a semi functioning GPE ROM by end of the month. what are u gunna call kitpop when 5.0 rolls around? I'm thinking the name no longer fits bro lol better start brainstorming that 1 bud ;) heres Joe's 5.01 test zip he had gotten it to boot and as far as the setup screen before being plagued with FCs and restarts. Did ya'll check that out yet and see why hes able to get a lot further than a bootanimation? I know I've been gone for a while but literally nothing has changed til a week ago. I just wish a breakthru on the bootloader would happen already.... sick of crossing my fingers and hoping would hiring a qualcomm dev to do some internal research help maybe petitioning them with all the bounty money would be easier than cracking it via an undiscovered exploit. christ i just realized im way too baked wrote a minibook response and can barely hold my eyes open. hell at this point im just happy we finally got lolli. I was really doubting if verizon was even going to release her for a while there lol

Well, Joe said it boots... but not one can get it to. He released that Zip, and multiple ATT testers confirmed that they couldn't get it to boot either, following his exact instructions. It is based off Echoe though, haha.

As for you 4.4.2 KK GPE ROM, you got MTP working? Mind sharing how you did so? I got UMS working as an MTP alternative on the ATT variant, but UMS doesn't work for the VZW model, as the VZW CD Installer takes over in the place of UMS.

Haha, I thought about the new ROM name actually. I'm thinking of calling it NextS4 or something similar. That's granted we can figure this all out :p BTW, it you want it, we did figure out WiFi AP, and packaged it into a nice WiFi AP app for the GPE SS ROM's, you can just yank it out of KitPop if you want to use it. It just requires Secure Settings (the app), XPosed, and Root.

So many options!!!

Unfortunately it didn't fully flash since It had an error during installation after install the apps. Right now, I couldn't get my phone booted and having issues flashing via Odin. So I'll have to try this again once I reflash the partitions on my phone again and reroot and all.

Will try to update once I've gotten everything done.

Bring on stock rooted, deodexed, debloated. I'm in.

hopefully uploading in a few hours. only setback on her was the phone/contacts rebuilding the APK kept causing weird FCs for Phone. Really annoying actually. If I pop another Phone into the Stock Phones place it works like a charm. Havent had a chance to see whats really the issue with that specific apk because I've been so overwhelmed with all these options and having to catch up to the rest of the scene thats been on and used to lollipop. i will say ive had better benchmarks than ever before with the few ROM's I just uploaded. The 1 will be instant favorite around here. just hoping everyone gives Gold a shot too cause its my fav so far...

but heres a few for you guys to test... let me know if you get same result with Albe95 S6 port with the phone which is that it works but its weird from time to time wont let you hang up or use dialpad incall. I'm working a new version of this ROM before public releasing but its a really really cool ROM Albe's out done hiimself. Personally looks better than S6 Stock to me (not a fan of the ugly VZW Swamp Green on stock dialer)
I'd wipe System and Data when installing these ROM's... but feel free to try dirty not sure what the results will be. Remember 1st boot of Lollipop ROM's takes a good 15mins sometimes just to load the System!

Tried the GOLD version a couple of times.

The first was obviously a bad download.

After another download, the second resulted in a bootloop.

I'm on MDK with TWRP 2.8.4.0. Do I need to upgrade TWRP or something else I need to do? I've been able to boot other AOSP/GPE/CM Lollipop ROMs but may be missing something.

neither rom works

I downloaded gold and super6 a few times

each time did an advanced wipe and then tried each rom ... neither has an aroma installer?

both rebooted to stock recovery screen

so i am now flashing another gogolie rom to play with

any ideas what i missed if anything?

Just to follow up. I have been successful at flashing the stock Lollipop from muniz_ri so my problems appear specific to the GOLD ROM (haven't tried the other yet).

getting ASOP to work is gonna require a pretty substantial rewrite of the ROM source
the issue goes much deeper then samsung fiddling with ART
most likely gonna need to wait for samesung to release vzw LP source and then see what exactly they changed
not impossible but I highly doubt by the end of the month

Thanks for the update. Wish Samsung would have just left Lollipop alone -_- especially when cm 12.1 runs so well on my ageing Toro GNexus.
