Hey guys, since there's a lot of demand for Slim, I thought I'd build Slim for you guys. As of now it's in an Alpha stage and near AOSP, but it runs smooth :D

NOTE: THIS ROM IS BASED ON AOSP. THIS MEANS THE INFAMOUS CHIPSET-SPECIFIC BOOT ISSUE IS A THING ON THIS ROM. IF IT DOESN'T BOOT, DON'T WORRY, YOU DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG

It's got.. I actually can't say because right now, for some weird reason the SlimLauncher doesn't have the app drawer button. But yes, it doesn't have much considering they're very alpha.

So the story is that the Slim team lost one of it's core team members (who funded a lot of the Slim stuff like servers and whatnot). After this, Slim had some problems, they've addressed it on their website. Right now, (as far as I know) they are trying to fix up "AOSPB" or AOSP-CAF. AOSP CAF is a slightly tweaked version of AOSP optimized for Snapdragon devices. Most ROMs like Tesla, Minimal, Validus, Flayr are based on AOSPB as it is easier for various devices. (Regardless of what base though, I still have to manually add the exynos code to get the stuff building and running lol). That went a little Off-topic, but anyway, the Slim team is hibernating(?) as of now. [If I'm wrong somewhere, please do correct me]

Also if anyone's wondering why the delay in a ROM release (regardless of which), it's because my S3 had issues and I switched to an S4 for a while because I got a little mad at it. (Don't worry lol, this S4 isn't mine :p)

Yea I know they had some issues ,as seen on they G+ page,as well development for it was slow and everyone else noticed..well they are still in alpha and N is just around the corner.

I tried this ROM, its very fast really fast. but there are some major bugs. 1) it can see 774MB of RAM, we have only 833MB ram and lower ram isnot good for us. 2) heat up. 3) custom actions for buttons 4) google play consumes so much RAM. I'll hope u'll fix bugs. thank you and good luck guys :highfive:

Ok so I downloaded it through an coffee shop and flashed with mini gapps 19/5 build and its very smooth but here are the bugs that I suffered:
NFC not working (no NFC in settings)
Can't adopt SD Card always says corrupted same is Nameless ROM (I'm doing this to play my heavy games without moving files etc)
for app drawer in stock launcher, I switched to Google Now Launcher which comes with the gapps that I installed so its ok.

Otherwise, ROM is just great as haxynos even better. :)

After I enabled zram which is extremely needed on our S3 and reinstalled my backup apps via titanium backup, it froze and went to bootloop exactly like haxynox.

So I guess its kernel related.

I'll try agni kernel and report back ASAP.

Unfortunately, it still present even after I flashed agni kernel with cache wipe.

Try not enabling ZRAM.

To be honest, ZRAM isn't "extremely needed".

Well actually I really don't like cm roms because the wifi dropping issue. It's really so annoying and they couldn't solve it from cm11 to cm13. I hope Aosp build can be solution for us and cm goes to history. I think they should've accept google's offer but whatever. Thx for the aosp rom can't wait to see it as stable!

Why? Isn't it amazing for the multitasking performance?

I'm telling this out if experience rather than knowledge. But if I were to explain, I'd say that ZRAM requires a lot of Input/Output speeds which is fairly low for data exchange compared to RAM (RAM operates on a far higher speed)

    Slim Alpha 0.3 build is online! (I haven't tested it yet because it's 1:56 AM) and the build is still plagued with the button-light-thingy issue (sorry)

    Download!

    He should be the Luke Williams on G+ ?? I have been following him on DU G+ pages ;) :)
    Yeah that's me @goldbeard
    Hopefully I can finally build Dirty unicorns. Even if it means I have to manually edit each file for it to work.
    If that is so, it will be released sometime in September/early October.

    Hey guys, after some effort (laptop kept failing whilst building), I managed to build Slim. But, the touchkey is still messed up (I'll have to rework the kernel for this), the buttons don't work (forgot to calibrate the device trees to the latest Slim hw button changes), and SlimLauncher still keeps crashing. So due to this, release will be a bit delayed. Sorry guys :(
