As promised, I bring to you THE Official MOAR ROM for the Sprint Galaxy Note 4! Built from my stock Ultimate Note 5 ROM
which can be found HERE.
This is an exact replica of the original MOAR rom developed by @rompnit and @tdunham for the Sprint Galaxy Note 5.
Please visit the original MOAR rom thread to learn more about this Awesome rom and get the latest updates, tips, help and other useful information.
The rules for this thread are as follows:1. All port related discussion such as issues, updates and fixes must remain in this thread and not posted in the original N5 thread. This is to keep the original rom's thread clear of needless posts unrelated to the original rom.
2. All features, tips, guides, theming and other MOAR specific discussions can be done in the original rom thread as long as it does not contain issues or other types of posts that are strictly related to the port rom. Use common sense.
About ROM:This build is based on the stock Sprint OK3 5.1.1 Lollipop build for the N5. It's creators @rompnit and @tdunham have long collaborated with other projects. I have recently joined the team and i'm excited to be a part of a very talented group. Together we can conquer all things that make your smartphones Amazing! I have taken on the task of properly porting and fixing various issues that arise from this type of project. A lot of time and work goes into this rom before the porting process even begun! So please giveThanks here as well as the original thread linked above. We hope you enjoy your MOAR experience!

- Backup app
- GifMaker app (is an add-on feature for the stock Samsung photo gallery and can be found in the stock gallery's menu)
- Samsung fonts package (can be accessed from fonts settings. There's a lot so it takes a few seconds to load them all. when you open fonts settings be patient, they will load)
- Video Editor full version (I fixed the internal linking from the stock samsung video app so it will take you straight to the video editor when pressing "edit" for a video)
- XtremeMusic v7.0 by: @androidexpert35 (insert thread link here)
- Dolby ATMOS (overrides Samsung SoundAlive in stock Samsung music player as well as system wide audio)
Known issues: (same as the stock UN5 rom)
This is the list of known minor issues upon initial release. Some are beyond my control.
I haven't had time to look at these issues and it's very likely that i will not have them fixed before Marshmallow is released.
- Sprint Zone will fc during initial rom setup. it is looking for the bloat installer and ID apps which are removed.
- FM radio is broken (I plan to finish solving this problem in the future as I have a good sense of direction to solve this )
[*]World clock tab in the clock app does not work. (I know the cause of this problem and will try to fix it another time)
- Some Samsung apps (specifically 64bit versions) cannot be updated through Samsung galaxy app store. This is to be expected and they will fail to install. Please consider this before you remove any stock samsung apps!
- S-View cover doesn't work.
Changelog***v2.1*** Initial release (rom features listed above)
- Fixed stock samsung audio
- Fixed highest volume audio bug
- Fixed stock Samsung SoundAlive (however the bass knob in SoundAlive has a bug where bass will drop if you turn it to the left. Leave it centered for the best results)
- Made major adjustments to XtremeMusic installation and removal via aroma. It will now work exactly how it needs to work! Removal process will return stock audio exactly as it was originally! This is custom tailored for this rom ONLY. DO NOT FLASH THE OFFICIAL XTREMEMUSIC REMOVAL ZIP!!! IT WILL TOTALLY MESS UP STOCK AUDIO. THAT REMOVAL TOOL WAS NOT DONE CORRECTLY!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
- Fixed GPS issue
- Fixed World Clock
- Fixed various things in aroma
- Replaced root package with the same version from UN5 Hybrid rom
- Updated all apps
- Added 32bit N4 camera modes
- Added New options in aroma for N5 & S7 browser and new TW launcher (MM 6dock 5x5 app drawer)
- Improved scripts in aroma to handle switching between the launchers and browsers. Expect a clean slate when switching between these apps in aroma. There should be no issues now.
- Streamlined ROM Install section of aroma: Removed ability to skip certain features in aroma during ROM install, making them mandatory selections. This will prevent issues during initial ROM flash, making it more "fool-proof" in the event somebody decides to dirty flash on top of an existing system and in other situations. Once ROM is installed use the "Add/Remove Features" in aroma and you will have no problems.
- I may have missed something... if so i'll edit this as needed.
- Fixed MOAR custom launcher not installing when flashing the rom
- Fixed problem with updating SuperSU and losing root when flashing ad-ons in aroma.
- Updated Dolby ATMOS (included with XtremeMusic Mod)
- Added MaxxAudio (included with XtremeMusic Mod)
- SoundAlive will now be removed when you install XtremeMusic mod (it interferes with other audio mods. It's not needed anyway if you're running better audio mods.)
- Added options in aroma to install iOS or stock Samsung Emoji (can be found in AddRemove Features AOSP/TW section)
Before you Flash!!!
Before you flash this rom you absolutely MUST be running the latest OK1 software for the Sprint Note 4 with the latest bootloader as well as having your phone fully activated. While on the stock un-rooted OK1 rom, you will need to go to Settings/System updates and update PRL then update Profile. Reboot your phone and then go to Settings/Activate this device and launch it to properly activate your phone on the sprint network. Once this completes, make sure data, calls and gps works as it should. You must also download the latest TWRP v3.0 and flash it with odin on your PC. Aroma does not work right on older versions of TWRP so please update it before flashing this rom! Warning: DO NOT use Material theme in TWRP! It will cause you to not be able to read any of the text in Aroma. Once everything is activated and working and you have the latest TWRP installed, proceed with the flashing instructions below. If you ignore these requirements please expect issues and don't ask for help until you do these initial steps.
Note: You can either take the ota updates in order on your phone via OTA updates, or use odin to flash the software in order of release until you are fully updated. OTA updates on your phone are installed differently than odin packages therefore you may only have to take one or two updates to become current. The OTA updates run scripts to patch your current rom unlike odin tar packages that completely write the entire partition replacing everything clean. I will not go into great detail about that here. I have covered this many times in my other threads so if you aren't sure then do some searching here in the Note 4 forums.
***Before you flash any rom, please make sure your battery has at least 50% charge***
Flashing Instructions:Lets begin...
1. Download the rom
2. Check the MD5!!! Use a MD5 checksum tool on your pc or phone (Google is your friend)
3. Copy the downloaded rom to your phone's internal storage or micro-sd card
Note: It has become apparent to me that if you are coming from another custom rom, especially another port rom, that you MUST also wipe your internal storage. Left over data from other roms DO cause major problems! So if you want the best trouble-free experience with this rom, I highly recommend that you backup anything you need from you internal storage and wipe it in recovery. You should do this before placing this rom on your internal storage or else put the rom zip on your micro-sd card.
4. Backup anything you need to backup from your internal storage and copy it to your pc or sd-card (DO NOT RESTORE BACKED UP APPS! INSTALL THEM FRESH FOR THE BEST TROUBLE-FREE EXPERIENCE!)
5. Reboot to TWRP 3.0 custom recovery. Press "Wipe". Do the "Factory Reset" several times then go into "Advanced Wipe" options and wipe Dalvic Cache, System, Data, and Cache several times.
6. Go to recovery home screen and select "Install" and select the rom that you have already copied to your phone in step 3. above.
7. Flash the rom and the Aroma script will step you through the install process. Just follow the on-screen menu and choose the options you want and install the rom. Once it finishes uncheck the reboot checkbox and let it reboot to recovery. WAIT!!! DO NOT REBOOT YOUR PHONE YET!!!
***THE NEXT STEP IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!! It is done in order to clear the phone's current battery stats and prepare the phone for proper battery calibration***
***If you skip this step you will possibly have incorrect and misread battery capacity by your phone and will result in incorrect battery capacity problems*** Trust me. Do as I say and you will be perfectly fine.
8. While back in recovery go to the recovery homescreen and select "Reboot" then "Power Off".
9. With your phone powered off remove your battery. With the battery removed press and hold the power button for AT LEAST 20 seconds then release it.
10. Replace the battery and power on your phone. If the phone reboots into recovery then simply press "Reboot" then press reboot "System".
11. The initial boot process will take around 7 minutes. Just be patient. It will boot.
12. Once the phone has booted and you see the setup wizard screen, select your language then press the botton to continue to the next step. STOP HERE!
***THE NEXT STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!***
13. Stop at the wifi setup screen!!! Turn wifi off or leave it on, it doesn't matter. But STAY ON THIS SCREEN until your Sprint data has fully connected or else you will
not be able to sign into your accounts and the setup wizard will not be happy.
14. Once you have a data connection continue through setup wizard as usual.
That's it! You're done!
