Hey guys, do i need google apps for sense rom, and link to minimal google apps is not working (thread is closed) thanks by
You do not need gapps for SENSE roms. Also I have updated the link on the thread. Just use PA's GAPPS

Yes on SENSE 6 version can you add juste 4 apps Internet explorer, HTC file management, flashlight and calculator stock ? when it's almost perfect! please, thank you.

I agree, would love to see Internet explorer, HTC file management, and flashlight added back.

I just cooked this up real quick. Flashes HTC Calculator, HTC Browser, HTC File explorer, HTC Flashlight, Fixes the video player in the gallery and fixes up some sound issues.
Just flash it right over the BAREBONES SENSE ROM.

Enjoy!

This is supposed to be a lightweight and battery friendly rom. It was also built for my personal use if I just keep adding apps to it I feel like the purpose of the rom is broken. I can upload the apps for you and you can push them through adb if you would like though.

Can i flash this on sprint htc one?

No, not the uploaded version. I am looking for a beta tester for sprint however. If you're interested...

Please do not change the rom. If these users want sense apps they should go to a full rom and not a rom called "barebones".

Thanks for the great rom, keep up the good work.

Can't install aokp it keeps failing


Which recoveries are you guys using?

Any good s2w kernel for latest version?

Kangaroo Kernel is what I am using at the moment. It provides amazing battery life with BAREBONES. This is my second charge cycle (So its still not fully stable) and I got about 15 hours of use and still have about 40% battery left

    Hello Everyone! This is my first "Rom" release so bare with me. Basically I got tired of having tons of apps sucking juice out of my battery for no reason. The purpose of this rom is to be as lightweight as possible without sacrificing performance, battery, features, or customization.


    Thanks again sylentprofet for the great idea. If you want to check his rom out here is the link. All credits go to him.

    Note: This rom has no boot animation! Do not freak out if there is a black screen when you are booting!
    Also let the ROM settle for a couple of days before judging battery life.
    If you get force closes after installing the rom just reboot and try again!


    All credits go to original creators of content! Thanks to everyone who helped me build this without their knowing it ;) This rom was built from source using linux 14.04

    Added a couple of things back, removed some stuff, did some cleaning, added more features. Hopefully everyone enjoys the efforts :) Thanks again for trying the ROMS any constructive feedback is highly appreciated!

    *NOTES*
    A couple of things that I have noticed in the roms. #1 The roms work with multirom but the internal storage does not seem to work if booting from multirom. #2 In the SENSE version of the ROM it might kick you out of the playstore after signing in. That's no big deal just retry the playstore and it should work fine. #3 Make sure you choose the right version before complaining about missing features.

    Thank you all for understanding! :D

    New Version!

    Alright guys here is the deal. Today was my deadline to release both the AOKP ROM and the SENSE version of barebones. Unfortunately that will not happened. I'm just about to start school so its been and immensely time consuming process (2 jobs + school) I barely have enough time to work on a ROM let alone 2 roms and a kernel all at the same time. I managed to compile a what seems to be stable version of BAREBONES AOKP i'm still going to consider it a beta as I only had a couple of days to test it. Anyhow the changelog is below. Not as much as I wanted changed but its still better than nothing!

    I've been working mostly on the SENSE version as you guys seem to be excited about that. Again do not expect miracles from the SENSE version but I am trying to make it as best as possible. I might release the SENSE version tomorrow after a day or two of testing.

    Here is the changelog for the AOKP version
    Changelog
    8-22-14
    - Repo Sync
    - Trimmed it down a bit more
    - Fixed Fast charge
    - Fixed updater-script (NO MORE BINARY ERRORS!)
    - Smoother experience
    - Even more battery!
    - Applications not opening bug should be fixed!
    - Better responsiveness
    - Fixed logo to menu

    I wanted to include s2w and s2s in this release. Along with nightmare governor and BLN but the kernel was not stable and I had no time to fix it. If you would like these features there are plenty of Kernels out there for AOSP that will work just fine with this ROM (I recommend AGK Kernel or TinyKernel)

    ENJOY!

    8-11-14 Update Battery stats

    Here are my battery results for a normal day of usage. Some music, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, ect. This in on the second cycle so its not even fully stabilized yet.

    Hopefully i'll be able to achieve my goal of 7 hours screen on time with this ROM.

    P.S. Since people like sense as well i'm going to start to work on a Sense version of this ROM. Also looking into how to integrate S2W & S2S
