I would like to use this ROM with nova launcher and swiftkey. What would be a procedure to install it? You said that there is no launcher present. Will I be able to install nova after I install the ROM or do I need to install nova trhough TWRP? How can I do that? thx

It is so "Simpl" actually :p
you see in the second post there is the SS-Market.. get there and download any keyboard and launcher you like. Flash them after you flash the SSR, then you can go download whatever you like from the playstore and then remove what you like. ;)

Can i flash notification drawer themes used in simplerom ?
BtW i am using simple rom .. no issues.. thanks for your efforts

You can test that. I haven't test the compatibility with that, but I tried building it so its compatible with most mods. :eek:

@Hani K. : I found the solution for the problem of no signal on N910U. After flashing you rom and the pack, I flashed stock kernel of N910U and now it works well with full signal :D

Oh, thanks for your feedback, I thought you lost your IMEI even after flashing with U kernel.
anyway, will update the post.

1. S Planner issue when trying to manage calendars the s planner crashes. Tryied the calendar fix you posted above but without result.
2. How to manage the animation when app starts? From home screen settings, not all the labels are visible.

1. Noted.
2. play with few settings.. go out then come in again and you'll find everything visible. ;)

I have been using SimplRom, follow by SimpLite as my daily ROM for months. I was reluctant to flash this ROM as I thought it will be similliar to Simplite. But I was wrong. I find it is more responsive and smoother than SimpLite, I have only flash Note 4 pack. Thank you for cooking another wonderful ROM!

I have few questions here. Appreciate for your reply.
1) How can I get back the toolbox which is available in SimplRom and SimpLite?
2) Does the themming for SimpLite work in SS? Like Flat Black and White and etc?
3) How do I turn of the animation when i click and open any app.

The S Note app is missing for sure.

Nope it's not. ;)

1. There are many ways, tutorials and guides on how to do anything.. toolbox is so famous, a small research will put all the info you need in front of you. ;)
2. There is one way to know. :D
3. Depends on the launcher you are using, each launcher has its own settings from which you can control the animations. ;)

Bugs:
•When battery reaches 5% and the brightness can no longer be controlled, pull down notification menu glitches out only letting you see 2/3 of it.
•S6 Memo app force closes when clicking "Create New".
•S6 Voice Recorder force closes when opening it.
•After moving files with Gallery or My Files as well as after a reboot, a message pops up "Unfortunately android.process.media stopped working". This happens only in S6 pack and only once every time (not repeatedly crashing) and makes the Gallery force close (My Files don't close).
•S6 Launcher has super ugly (well, to me at least) app opening animations, showing an enlarged app icon when opening (definitely not like the real S6), and a regular "Slide down" when closing (with a weird graphical glitch). I suggest flashing an S6 Launcher from the other threads found in "Themes & Apps" section. This fixes the issue.
•Note 4 pack lacks Calendar Storage (but S6 pack doesn't!) which makes creating events impossible on Note 4 pack.
•Might not be considered as a bug but S6 pack lacks S6 Wallpaper Picker which S6 Wannabe pack in SimplROM thread includes (would be a nice addition).
•S6 pack contains Sony Live Wallpaper app which is out of place and doesn't seem to work (black picture)
•Note 4 pack has Galaxy Apps widget preinstalled but no Galaxy Apps making it useless (freezing helps).
Might remember some more bugs later on.
Tested with Note 4 and S6 packs (Both after full wipe with SS ROM reinstalling)

Review!

Been running this rom for about 3 weeks now, i'm using the sony pack, and most of the apps works really well. In my case only one app that won't open that is the calendar app. Everything else from sony is working (can't comment on playstation and lifelog app because i don't use it), like album, walkman, memos, etc. Battery life is great really, and the rom is speedy, and most of the time it is buttery smooth. just some notes below:

- Recents apps scrolling is laggy, also sometimes there are stutter here and there in rom and in chrome when browsing webpages, this doesn't happen in simplrom.
- Gallery app is sorely needed here, as everything that need access to image will find that it is missing and well.. bugs happen, like when clicking at the recently captured images from camera apps, normally this will takes you to the gallery app, but now it does nothing. Also when a social media(in my case bbm) apps takes photo, usually it can't retrieve the recently captured images , so you will need to tap the pick photo icon and manually pick the photos from there. Also i haven't succeed changing my lockscreen wallpaper as the wallpaper picker apps need access to gallery to changes to custom images, here it just says 'no apps installed'
- Sony launcher and apps looks weird because lacks of on screen navigation button. it is slightly too up.

that's all i can comment.. great rom! i really like the concept of packs! others android skin packs will be greatly welcomed.. (how about stock android packs with google now launcher and all stock android apps?)

As mentioned before, I didn't modify anything in this ROM barely modded so,
  • Battery brightness and pulldown notification are Stock Firmware bugs.
  • I see most of your issues are with the S6 pack. You can always flash something else.. and about the Launcher, that's the whole point.. you modify whatever you like and flash what you want. The reason I chose this S6 launcher version is because its unique, and has all the internal hidden features under your control. Other issues like the S6 voice recorder will be updated later if possible.
  • Wallpaper picker should work perfectly, and the issue of android.process.media been answered before.
  • Are you sure the S6 pack has Sony live wallpaper?
  • About Note 4 pack Calender and Gallaxy apps. Noted.
  • Do not use Note 4 and S6 pack together.

  • Again this is not SimplRom its Stock barely modified and extremely debloated but you are not supposed to have that lag, one of the apps you're using is taking over the RAM (keep checking the RAM). about the Album (try updating it from the playstore this shall fix everything).
  • About wallpaper picker.. Noted.
  • The Sony launcher is how it actually supposed to look with Note 4 screen dimensions.


Remember guys, the point of this ROM is to give you the chance to mod/install/flash whatever you want from the internet. Those packs we made is to save you time and burden and give you a new experience. People I know are using this ROM only with the apps they install from the playstore, all they needed was a keyboard and a launcher to start with, and this is why we introduced the SS Market Folder.

I've been so busy so far, but as soon as I get free, I have a couple of new stuff in mind that would make this ROM look/work even better.

Thank you for your feed back. :)

Nope, I'm not using both packs at the same time.

Yes, Sony Wallpapers are preinstalled in S6 pack.

Wallpaper Picker is from Note 4 in S6 pack. I don't consider this as a bug but it would be nice to get S6 one.

Notification pulldown bug never happened to me on any ROM, even stock.

Notification pull down is in BOE1 and BOE3.. I fixed it after a lot of modification in SimplRom.. But wanted to keep it stock here.

    **Do NOT make any mirrors. We can manage that ourselves just fine**
    *Flash Under Your Responsibility*





    IV. Installation guide

    IMPORTANT
    • - You cannot use this ShapeShifterROM alone, or you will end up with a black screen. If you don't have a Launcher and a Keyboard (At least), that is to be flashed after flashing ShapeShifterROM, then you will have to flash one of the packs in the 2nd post.

    It's recommended to use the TWRP recovery and the latest Bootloader and Modem version.
    Backup before you flash.

    N910U users:
    For the N910U users, Flash N910U Kernel from Kernels folder.
    and Flash THIS, to fix your noise issue.

    N910C/H users:
    Bootloaders and Modems have been uploaded to BL_CP folder.

    • CYO
    • DBT
    • ETL
    • EUR
    • ILO
    • ITV
    • LUX
    • MEO
    • MET
    • NEE

    • ROM

    • XEO




    How can I check my current CSC?

    Install Phone INFO app from Play Store and check your CSC. If you are using stock ROM and everything is ok with your CSC - all CSC fields in Phone Info app should display the same CSC, as below (otherwise, you probably forgot about wipe data when you were installing ROM with another CSC).

    How can I change my current CSC?

    Q: Recently I tested several ROMs, in result of it my CSC has changed. I would like to flash your ROM, but first I want to restore my country's original CSC. What should I do?
    • Case 1: Your country's original CSC is available in Shape Shifter ROM.
      No special/additional steps are needed. Just flash the ROM with edited options.prop file placed on internal sdcard or extSdCard -> type CSC=[your_csc] instead of CSC=KCSC. Remember to perform "Wipe data" in the recovery before install. Note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app).
    • Case 2: Your country's original CSC is not available in Shape Shifter ROM. Your original ROM contains single CSC pack (omitting parts with model name and incremental version - name of CSC package is same as product code = CSC)
      Example:
      Code:
      Model: SM-N910F
      Model name: GALAXY Note 4
      Country: Montenegro
      Version: Android 4.4.4
      Changelist: 3311829
      Build date: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 05:21:39 +0000
      Product Code: [COLOR="red"]TMT[/COLOR]
      PDA: N910FXXU1ANK4
      CSC: N910F[COLOR="red"]TMT[/COLOR]1ANK1
      MODEM: N910FXXU1ANK4

      In this case you need to flash your original ROM using PC Odin, then perform wipe data using stock recovery and then check your CSC in Phone Info app (note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app).

      Now you can install Shape Shifter ROM - just leave "Keep current CSC" option untouched in /options.prop (it's good idea to perform "Wipe data" again from recovery to remove potential "garbage" from /data partition like e.g app data created by CSC bloatware and CSC bloatware updates).
    • Case 3: Your country's original CSC is not available in Shape Shifter ROM. Your original ROM contains multi CSC pack (omitting parts with model name and incremental version - name of CSC package differs from product code and usually begins with the letter "O").
      There is no good example for SM-N910C, As most of the CSC packages are available. However, I am going to put an example in theory what should you do in that case.
      Code:
      Model name: GALAXY Note 3 LTE
      Country: Thailand
      Version: Android 4.4.2
      Changelist: 1955971
      Build date: Wed, 25 Jun 2014 12:15:26 +0000
      Product Code: [COLOR="red"]THL[/COLOR]
      PDA: N9005XXUFNF4
      CSC: N9005[COLOR="red"]OLB[/COLOR]FNG1
      MODEM: N9005XXUFNF2
      In this case you need to flash your original ROM using PC Odin or Mobile Odin PRO (see "NOTE" and "HINT" below to avoid problems), then perform wipe data using stock recovery and then check your CSC in Phone Info app (note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app). Then becomes something strange - you will see that your CSC is XTC (Philippines) instead of THL (Thailand)! It's because XTC is the default CSC in OLB multi CSC package in case of flashing it on ROM with other than OLB CSC package. To change CSC to THL you need CSC Select app from Play Store (requires root and stock recovery to perform all operations correctly!). Then check your CSC again using Phone Info app - should be OK.

      Now you can flash the multi CSC ROM - just choose "Keep current CSC" in options.prop (it's good idea to "Wipe data" again to remove from /data partition potential "garbage" like e.g app data created by CSC bloatware and CSC bloatware updates).


      NOTE: Sometimes it's not possibe to flash your original stock ROM, e.g. in case you have already installed a major update, but it has not been released for your country yet. In such cases Samsung usually prevents downgrades - phone usually will not be able to boot after flashing or maybe you will not be able to flash it at all.

      HINT: There is still a way to flash ROM with your CSC pack using Mobile Odin PRO. Just use "Open file..." option to load ANY stock ROM (*.tar.md5) available for your phone (not older than your current ROM base) AND THEN load using "Cache" / "Hidden" options following 2 files extracted from the latest ROM (containing YOUR CSC): cache.img.ext4, hidden.img.ext4 (you can use 7-zip to extract *.tar.md5 file). Then flash such "MIX" in one step using "Flash firmware" option in Mobile Odin PRO.
