Does this have lockscreen notifications options? I did not see it anywhere.
Regardless still an awesome ROM and thanks for bringing it to the note 3.

Not really an issue but I noticed after rebooting my phone the wallpaper switched from a blue to a white slim logo. I only see one wallpaper to choose from and it has a white logo.

That changes with the toggling if TRDS (The Real Dark Slim). White is toggled on, blue is off.

    This IS a Unified Build, so in theory it should work for Sprint, T-mobile. Others I am not sure of, make a back up of current ROM as well as EFS. Most issues I am aware of, keep that in mind before flooding the thread with audio crackle posts!

    Why is the ROM download on Goo and not Slim Website?

    this is beta, build may be updated every daily, not only weekly.

    Is this Official?

    YES

    Must I do a Full Wipe?

    YES

    Will this kill kittens?

    No kittens were harmed in the making of SlimROM.

    guess its time to breathe a little life back into this thread...


    when downloading the weekly (HERE), sprint guys grab hltespr and GSM guys grab the same hlte as before ;)

    vzw guys, your build failed but is fixed now, you can grab it HERE

    The reasoning for the divorce of all hlte's is RIL related. Yes one size fits all builds (unified) were MUCH easier to handle, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    thanks for the support guys/girls! :good:

    Hey Guys/Girls!

    I have opened a thread for this ROM in theNote 3 section. Being we are a Unified build, having a carrier type thread is bad for advertisment ;)
    anyway thread will is located HERE

    This thread will remain open for your discussions, but any logcat/bug reports and things that are DEV releated, please use the new thread, Thanks!
