the framework remains odexed, and a lot of apk of firmware, but all the apk's modified abore are deodexed on original rom.
You can see it in your phone. All the apk's odexed have a extra folder, namer "arm", in the folder of apk

OK thanks for clarifying, I am trying to get 4 way reboot working on Lollipop. I did what in this thread says but still advanced reboot options are not shown. That would be great if you could look at it and see if we can make it working. I attached my modded android.policy,jar.

PS: access# in GlobalActions$99.smali is set to 500 as in GlobalActions.smali

deep sleep not work after flash Kernel


i dont see any issue, and I have used in the last 3 days.
If you look on the ramdisk, i change only 3 lines in the default.prop and init.rc. All the modifications are related to selinux and adb.

In other hand, this kernel inherited all the qualities and defects of the original

Sir ! How about u mod TW Launcher 320dpi .. ?

That would be great if you could look at it and see if we can make it working. I attached my modded android.policy,jar.

how the possibility to have the clock centered on status bar plz


This is a work on progress, thread.


The mod's in the framework are are a bit difficult at the moment, because the framework is odexed and I have not figured how to re-odex applications in Lollipop.

I left for the end, the mods in systemui because they are usually more difficult

I'm trying to do the launcher with auto rotation, but so far without success

clock centered, four way reboot, numeric battery, toggle for flashlight and network mode are in my todo list

<SamsungMobileFeauture>
  <Version>ED001</Version>
  <Country>UNITED KINGDOM</Country>
  <CountryISO>GB</CountryISO>
  <SalesCode>BTU</SalesCode>
  <FeatureSet>
