Ultra Light ROM for the AT&T Galaxy S6



Ultra-Light_zpsdwq3fasr.png



Ultra Light is a de-bloated stock ROM without Touchwhiz Launcher and S-Voice. Nova Launcher is installed out of the box. This ROM is for people wanting a more traditional Google 5.0.2 experience, without sacrificing the features of a Touchwhiz ROM. Big thanks to Scrosler for the UCU1AOE2 base and _Dennis_ for the deodexed files.

Note: As long as you have 1.2 or above, you should be able to flash over your existing ROM, as long as you wipe davlik cache first, although its always best to start fresh.
Note: Do not take the OF3 update at this time as it does not have root. OF3 based Ultra Light is still ways off, and the improvements of OF3 are trivial at best.

What does deodexed mean? Does the Rom essentially look like the stock AOSP? Are the settings and notification center have the same appearance as stock android?

I know it isn't a themed rom, I just want to see when you say "no touchwiz" does that mean it has the look of stock Android?
No it means the extra touchwiz apps are gone, what's left is the same systemUI (general look), same settings.apk (the setting menu), etc.

If your looking for AOSP look, go to the Verizon section and get the AOSP theme based on the urban theme.

    @Rayman360 one question I read OP is this Rom deodexed?

    New version 1.2 is Deodexed :) Thanks to _Dennis_

    As of right now, the update is canceled.

    Running Geekbench 3, I am consecutively getting 3K to 10K less, from 50K originally down as low as 40K. I will continue running benchmarks and testing to see if its just a fluke.


    Turns out, the phone was just running hot due to flashing, updates and benchmarks. thus likely was scaling the process and GPU down.

    1.3.1 Release is pending.
