Not so simple! :p
you need the root folder to have the right ramdisk kernel.
And the slimsaber rom is not really the same than slimrom. slimsaber contains cm AND slim (minor) things...

I did flash slimsabre but it was lacking features provided in this rom, this rom is ideal for almost anyone, every single xsposed module other then amplify and minguard or app that i used to achieve some sort of functionality like display timeout quick menu options or something else was integrated into this rom. This rom undid every stupid change that was introduce into 5.0 and on wards.

---------- Post added at 05:11 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:04 AM ----------

also the rom boots with flashing the other kernel, i might be missing some files though, is the kernel compiled into boom.img or is there any additional libs that may be requires in the other rom? ill flash stweaks and see what i can do here.

---------- Post added at 05:35 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:11 AM ----------

seems to be running smoothly, stweaks installed, not sure if i need to copy over the system/lib/modules or anything else though. fast charging is working roms snappy, nothing else has suffered. it did reboot a few times initally but i left it idle for 5 minutes then proceeded to install stweaks. so far nothing else has happened. ill leave it running for a few days an see how stable it is.

Tylog, the OP, left this devices months ago as far as I know.
The last builds are unofficial builds made by angelcalibur.
I don't know what happened to angel, maybe he's busy, but I know he is working with the JDCTeam at the moment.

i know that @srisurya95 have made a slim release, but don't know if he had the time to share and update it. He's really busy too!

Information

Something new is comming! :D
Watch attachement! i use it since yesterday and everything is running fine (GPS, BT, Wifi...) because i use our device tree (form our AOSP 6 rom).
This slim rom will run on unified device, like our JDC Team do for our AOSP and CM rom! ;)

For the moment, on 9505 it's ok, i'am waiting answer for I545 device (Verizon).

Something new is comming! :D

Excellent news! :D I'm assuming it's the official Slim for Android 6 for the S4, right?

Quick question, though: could it be announced in this thread, even if it's pointing to another one? I've not been very active here, lately, and it might slip by for a while, if I don't get a reminder... :eek:

Also, any ETA? :angel:

Here it's the official thread for slim Rom for S4 device, but the OP was @Tylog and i helped him here to release last old 5.1.1 build.
I've asked to slim team if i can be the official OP for slim6 for S4 device.

Waiting for answer. if answer is not, don't worry, our JDC Team will release unofficial build!

Hi all,
a question concerning the upgrade to MM. Is it safe to backup apps from this LP rom with TB and to restore them on a CM13-based rom? Or to a MM-based Slim rom? It's my sister's phone, so I want to play it safe and minimize the risks of losing app data :)
Thanks for keeping us up to date with the project!

You might run into issues. So take full nandroid along with App back up.

    About " Slim is Dead "


    I put this Posting in the OP and change the Thread Titel so all can read it and i hope this stops the asking and the Questions.

    We read in the last weeks many times questions, statements, about SlimRoms when it goes on or is Slim Dead.

    To clear it.

    We write in the last weeks many Times taht we have a lot of changes done, Team Intern , Personnel, software, hardware. These are all things that need time / have needed. Completed about 90% of the process.


    People ask why nothing happens in the Gerrit.


    We changed the whole system and you can find the Gerrit now here



    you can see, we working hard on 5.1


    People ask what happens with the Slim Homepage

    You can finde the new HP here


    please note, the HP is under construction and not finished.


    You can be sure , SlimRoms is anything but just not dead,, many things need a lot of time, I would like and can no release date call for the next update, but I can say that it will not be long.

    In this sense,
    Greetings

    Tylog ( Team SlimRoms )



    SlimRoms is a custom android operating system. The main goal is to offer users a slimmed down but still feature rich alternative to other android operating systems.
    The entire SlimTeam work together to bring you this tailor-made beauty straight from Android Open Source Project (AOSP) source code.
    All of the sources can be publicly viewed through GitHub and you can stop by the public Gerrit to submit patches of any type.


    Please Note


    A few words about the current standing. It was Christmas , New-Year , Holiday Time. After this we had to do in the last few weeks some organizational, server relocation, team structures, and more. Most of it is done. Pending Weekly's are started I will post a new build Sunday evening an Official Build upload. Sunday 01-February. I Post the DL Link in the Thread and here in the OP.
    Let's hope we can start Weeklys in 1-2 Weeks. Thats the plan.
    Regards , Tylog

    Q) How can i change the DPI and whats the Stock Default DPI
    A) DPI Settings coming soon , you can use textdroider_dpi from Playstore https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.texdroider.texdroider_dpi&hl=de , this works fine. Default Stock DPI is 480.

    Q) A few Settings like Disable Blacklight Keys and more are missing .
    A) All features you know from 4.3 will come back from time to time , for now you can use Xposed in combination with Gravity Box.

    Q) Can i restore my apps with Titanium Backup coming from another Rom ?

    Q) What for a Recovery is recommanded ?
    A) I use TWRP 2.6.3.1 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2468187 and it works fine , you can use the official CWM Recovery too.


    Q ) There is no Theme Chooser in the Rom ?
    A ) For now we use no Theme Chooser, you can use HK ThemeManager, it does the same and more
