Thank you @gkalenis for your share, works OK, just flashed it as instructed! Excellent post! Used TWRP 2.8.1.0.

1. Just a side-track bug, the main phone desktop has 3-4 empty groups (inside apps were removed, as you say) so tapping once in the empty folder/group and returning to the desktop, automatically removes this folder.
2. I also saw that boot-time is faster, can you confirm? (I don't get boot logo sound though, must check if it's phone setting or not; unless you killed that sound too :D )
3. Finally, because of the missing Google Talk etc. and the issue that many of us encounter, when opening Gmail on browser and "hidden" status shows "Oops! You are not invisible because you're logged into Google Talk from another client, device, or location that doesn't support invisibility." can you please confirm that Google Talk or Hangouts is totally removed, even as a service?
4. With factory defaults and wiping later, the wizard setup should appear upon 1st run--is that also removed? Just checking...!

Many thanks!!!

Hi Kosta , i'm glad to see you here in xda also.
Thank you for your feedback!!!!

Well , this rom as i said is totally empty , it has only neccesary apps , everything deleted , even the updater apk , also talk, hangouts , and everything unneeded ( at least for me ).
Boot sounds are disabled , if you want to enable boot sounds , just go to system/media/ and delete the ".bak" at the end of mp3 files and boot sounds will work again.
Everything else as you notice is deleted.
Rom is very fast now and you can install any app you like without preinstall garbages.
Rom support init.d scripts and tweaks ( i allready include some ) , and everything work faster than stock rom.
For empty folders in desktop , just open them and will dissapear , as you said.
Thank you , once again for testing and for your feedback.

FOR ALL USERS
I have whole stock rom 150429 deodexed , if anyone wants to add some apps which i delete , i can upload an almost full version of Flight A328.

idk what happen but this doesnt work on my lenovo a328.. stock on boot logo ive been waiting for 30 mins nothing happen
You are the second that you have boot problem with this rom , but i don't know why do you have problems , for most of users rom works great.
Would you like to try to flash previous version first , reboot phone , check if boot ok and then try to flash over the new update.

Hi @gkalenis and thank you for your update, please can you also provide a couple of points more?
-Does this update poll for official updates and produce messages/notifications or is it removed, as expected?
-Does the SD card need special partitioning/formatting to support this new feature? Can you point us to a page with description of what needs to be done? I remember that there is a procedure to split SD to EXT3/FAT32 partitions for "Link2SD" (or whatever that tool is) so if you find a page with instructions, can you please share it?
-Do we need to do a clean ROM update (with wipe etc.) or can we just throw this on the top of your previous Flight A328 release?

UPDATE: I found this article, for example.

Many thanks... I will update to this ROM, once I am back home...

Hi Konsti !!
This update is like first rom , totally cleaned , as i say this rom will be updated only by me.

About sdcard mode
Actually all my sd cards are partitioned but this modd will work for non partitioned sdcards as well.
When you connect your phone to pc will recognize only external sd as phone storage and usb mass storage doesn't work , only mtp mode works.
Delete all files and folders from internal storage or anything you want move it to external sd.
Open root explorer and go to storage folder , you will see two folders sdcard0 and sdcard1 , now sdcard0 sawing external sd card and sdcard1 sawing internal sd.
Open sdcard1 and delete or move everything except folders 0 and legacy.
That's it , reboot your phone and everything will work like a charm with a lot of free space for apps.
As you can see i have real racing which is 841mb and sygic which runs through phone storage , with previous kernel with those two apps my phone memory filled , now as you can see i have 1,3gb space available and i can install much more apps or games to my phone without space problems.
Check screenshots to see what i did ..

Hi again @gkalenis, kindly tell us if we need to do a clean ROM install (with full wipe etc.) or can we just throw this on the top of your previous Flight A328 release? I cannot afford the time to repeat each time the installation steps/parameters :D :D

I allready said that in previous post , some users has bootloop problem after clean install of new update , to avoid this you must flash this rom over previous flight and everything will be fine.
Read my previous post and you will understand.
