sasiskas 5.0.1 ROM for Galaxy S4 DUOS I9502

First of all, let me tell you the story and the philosophy behind this ROM.
The story: One month ago I bought an I9502 because it was the best dual sim phone for it's price. Unfortunately it is oriented for the Chinese market so it is full of Chinese customizations and apps. And since there are no International-oriented custom lollipop roms available, I decided to create one by my own.
The philosophy: The rom is based on my personal preferences, I just share it because why not! Since I am not a samsung software fan, I removed almost every samsung bloatware. And Obviously removed all the chinese crap and customized everything I could in order to make the rom more international.

The ROM is based on a the latest I9502ZNUJOC3 firmware. In order to save some time I found the official ROM Deodexed from romzj.com and customized it to my personal taste.

CUSTOMIZATIONS

  • Deodexed (by romzj)
  • Busyboxed (by romzj)
  • Rooted (by romzj)
  • Replaced Boot animation from China Unicom to Samsung
  • Removed almost all Samsung apps
  • Removed all Chinese apps
  • Added Google apps
  • Xposed
  • Camera shutter sound on/off
  • Added advanced power menu
  • 3minitBattery
  • Network Stats On status bar (settings->connections->more networks->Network Traffic)
  • Removed Baidu location consent
  • Replaced location service from baidu to google
  • Removed SIM icon from status bar in order to save some space
  • Removed Sfinder and Quick connect from Pull down menu
  • In SMS app, replaced sharing location from mo.maps.com to google maps
  • Replaced Chinese keyboard with multilingual S6 Keyboard (all languages available)
  • Replaced file manager with S6 file manager
  • Added optical reader from S6
  • Added weather from S6
  • Added KidsMode from S6
  • Removed Chinese search engines from stock browser
  • Maybe something else that I don't remember
  • All languages are supported.
  • Modified SMS/MMS app, Replaced sharing location feature from chinese maps to google maps
  • Removed Airplane mode confirmation dialog
  • Added Application Permission option (app ops) in settings->more->security


KNOWN ISSUES

  • If you go to "settings->security->sim change alert" the settings app will crash. Generally some items in settings menu are not working because they are linked to Samsung Account, this happens because I removed Samsung Account, I left the settings there in case someone wants to reinstall Samsung Account.
  • After boot, Touchwiz might crash one time. I'm not sure what causes this issue, but I don't mind since I use Nova Launcher. If you want you can help me find the source of the problem. Fixed in version 1.1
  • Messaging app crashes Fixed in version 1.2
  • Contacts not recognized in messages or when receiving a call. Fix according to your country.
  • Generally the rom is VERY stable, and I have no issues so far.. (I use it since July 2015)

-Updated Modem to latest version (I9502CHUIOH2)
-Updated photo edit tool[/URL]

did you flash the bootloader?
also wiped data&cache?
also wiped system?

If you already tried these. Then do the following. (MUST WORK 100%)
1. Download official I9502ZNUJOC3 firmware from sammobile http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/download/44922/I9502ZNUJOC3_I9502CHUJOC3_CHU/
2. Flash it using Odin (Helpful video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ulz-1UYzHBA)
3. Boot normally to official stock rom
3. Go to recovery, wiped data&cache, then also wiped system.
4. Recover my ROM as a backup from your SDcard

You can't because you dont have enough free space.
You must flash stock ROM, then root, then remove as many Chinese and Samsung apps as possible, then install "Gapps 5.0.x PICO" .
Pico is the smallest version of Gapps ( including only basics google apps) , but it is ok, you can install any google app you like, later from google play store.

It is strange when i unpack your rom on my SD twrp is not seeing it as a backup.
I had to make a backup and then delete everyting from that folder then put your files inside and only then i can do a restore, but restore fails.
I will try once more. I follow your instructions to the letter but for some reason it is not working for me.

That happens because TWRP sees only the content of TWRP folder that is generated inside your SDcard. I should have mention that but I forgot.

I had to make a backup and then delete everyting from that folder then put your files inside and only then i can do a restore, but restore fails.

What message do you receive when it fails?

I will try once more. I follow your instructions to the letter but for some reason it is not working for me.
Did you try the second method I described? it should work.

Sorry for the trouble but I don't have a second device to try it, and on my device it works fine.
Awaiting your feedback

Ok first because i didn't had lollipop flashed only bootloader and twrp after. When i tried to restore twrp didn't see your folder so i made a small backup first and i then deleted it and moved your files into that folder. Twrp then saw the files and it restored boot, preload but when it starts to restore system it has some strange progression, it starts from 0MB to 172836928327MB and it is always on 0% no matter how much MB it restores, it reaches around 1500MB then it reports Failure. I will try again and will post the log.
Also when it failed first time i have downloaded full rom from your post, i have updated the phone, it boots normally. Same china baidu crap all over it. I again flashed twrp and repeated the procedure.
Wipe data / cache. Wipe system and i try restore but it fail again.

I juts tried it and it works fine for me.
I'm uploading a new Version V1.1. You should better try the new version.
  • This time it is complete backup, not just system
  • It is not compressed, maybe the compression was causing problems
  • Fixed some bugs from previous version

And I'm also trying to find a way to make my ROM as a flashable zip, for easier installation, but I have no idea how to do it at the moment.
