Microkat G4 is a new form of a stock ROM, and a form of challenge to Samsung and their bloatware.
Currently on 410 MB, this ROM aims to make the phone run on the least bloatware possible, a good aid to gamers.
This ROM is public domain; you can help and further remove bloatware to make it less in size. You can also
use it as a project starter of your own.
This is not intended, in its present form, as a daily driver.

What is Removed:
- I can't remember. I was deleting everything that came under my sight.

What is Kept:
- Settings (of course ...)
- Messaging
- Phone
- Contacts
- TouchWiz Home (that should be removed, too ...)
- Camera

Known Bugs:
- Messaging app keeps throwing FCs.

To Be Done:
- Further decreasing the ROM size.
- Fixing the Messaging app FC.
- Presentation, decoration and overall form.
- A DedS kernel, when that project becomes more stable.
- Performance improvements.

Download:

Readme and license coming soon.

Just saw this bro, niiiice. I got some advice for you though or rather suggestions. It's not about being too light. It's about having it's own distinct uniqueness. Make it look light but sexy. All S5 features (almost) should be included. Battery Life and Performance is the most important but you shouldn't sacrifice the appearance either. Have your rom have its own style to get known for (i.e. balliboxer's gennxt roms). I will flash your rom after your next update ;) don't forget to remove knox btw, and google camera. They can just download it when they need it because there's no/little use of having 2 camera apps. Good Job mate :good:

Add screenshots bro, it attracts people.
