This rom is for J500FN model.I don't know if it does work on J500F or any other model. If you want to try, just remove assert lines in updater-script, BUT i'm not responsible if you brick your phone!
Is working on J500F model.
Thank you @the-bomber for confirmation!

I'm Robert, an satisfied and happy user of the Samsung Galaxy J5 ( J500FN
), but somehow bored of it since it doesn't have any custom rom or kernel, in few words, xda support. At begin, i was planning to build Cyanogenmod or AOSP and an custom kernel with minimal features, but i lack the knowledge to do it, but it's not impossible, just that i have alot of headache and i'm not that happy with that. I was also planning to do an custom rom too, with many features and many themes available, this is easier, but again alot of headache. I can't promise i would do these, but i may try again to make a better custom rom.
So, here is Stock ROM Advanced
. It's just an simple rom, nothing more yet. Check out the features section for more informations.Screenshots attached ( switch XDA theme to 2013 or 2015 theme from bottom of page and click on Screenshots tab if you can't see them.
Please share this XDA thread since Galaxy J5 doesn't have it's own xda forum...
That's all the features it has now. Is just an custom rom based on stock rom, with some minimal changes, but improving the daily experience, at least for me. I can't promise, but maybe in future i will make it more than an simple rom, with more features. I repeat, can't promise it. I have decided to add more features in next version.
<<< click. Just mediafire link for now.
DO NOT MIRROR THE ROM. IF YOU WANT AN MIRROR, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL UPLOAD IT TO THE WEBSITE YOU WISH since i have good network! Thank you!
(it's actually easy to install it, but i've wrote it this way because there may be new people to XDA which just wish the rom and doesn't want to bother by searching to how to do it)
Flashing GAPPS is required because if you don't you will be stuck at setup wizard. This issue is probably caused by one of the removed apps. However, it won't cause any other problem. So, flashing GAPPS is a must right after you flash the rom, but you can remove them if you wish after you finish Setup Wizard.
