BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP...

I strongly recommend performing a Nandroid backup before installing Rom


Installation without wipe (Coming from previous build):

-Download AOSP NeatROM and save zip to internal SDcard
-Download Google Apps and save zip to internal SDcard
-Boot into Recovery (Volume up + Home + Power)
-Wipe cache and dalvik cache
-Select Install zip from SD card
-Flash NeatROM
-Flash Google Apps (optional)
-Reboot your device

Installation with Full wipe:

-Download AOSP NeatROM and save zip to internal SDcard
-Download Google Apps and save zip to internal SDcard
-Boot into CWM or PhilZ Recovery (Volume up + Home + Power)
-DO A DATA WIPE / Clean to install a new ROM
-Go to Advance and Select Wipe dalvik cache
-Go to Mounts and storage, select Format system
-Select Install Rom from SD card
-Flash NeatROM
-Flash Google Apps (optional)
-Reboot your device

Ultra clean installation [PhilZ CWM]:

#1 Download Gaaps & ROM, move them to the external SDcard
#2 Reboot to CWM (yeah, make sure you have the latest version.. :good:)
#3 Perform these steps while in CWM:
- Nandroid backup, choose external sdcard (nah, it's always good to have at least one!)
- Install zip → choose zip from storage/sdcard1 -> make sure CWM recognizes your sdcard properly, if so, go back to the main menu,
- Wipe data/factory reset → clean to install a new rom
- Mounts and storage → format /data and /data/media (/sdcard) (it will erase all of your data from internal memory, make sure in #1 that you have the right one zips to flash rom placed in external!); it may take up to 30 seconds, wait patiently
- flash NeatAOSP zip
- flash gaaps
- reboot system now

P.S.1. Remember to backup data you want to keep, f.e. photos - place it on your computer temporary.
P.S.2 It will NOT wipe your external storage(external SDcard I mean), don't worry. :)

#4 be happy with fully cleaned device running smoothest AOSP rom here :cool:

Thanks @malachow

First off - check out the FAQ before posting

* Use always latest version of recovery
* To get Root working go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Root access
* To activate ART go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Select runtime

Q: How to set custom lockscreen wallpaper?
A: Rename your image to "lockscreen_wallpaper.jpg" and copy it to data/NeatRomWallpaper/here (replace the original)

Q: How to change DPI?
A: Look here

Q: Trying to flash, but I'm getting a status 7 error?
A: Update your recovery (Get the latest Philz from here)

Q: My Ext SD isn't being recognised any more?
A: If your Ext SD is exFat, then format it as FAT32 don't forget to backup your data.
(For Windows users - try using Easeus Partition Manager - see here)

Q; Advanced Reboot doesn't seem to be working?
A: To activate Advanced Reboot Options go to System Settings/Security/Advanced Reboot

Q; ART doesn't seem to be working?
A: To activate ART go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Select runtime and ensure "Use Art" is selected. Don't forget to reboot!!!
If that doesn't work - then uninstall Xposed before changing to ART as Xposed doesn't work with ART. (see here)

Q: ART is not working, causing application issues I have xposed framework installed
A: Art should work fine as long as if you are not using xposed framework
Use root explorer
Navigate to system/bin
Check to see if you have 'app_process.orig'
If so delete it and try ART again

Q: What is ART - http://source.android.com/devices/tech/dalvik/art.html
A: ART stands for ‘Android RunTime’ and its job couldn’t be more important: it runs the apps on Android devices.
ART replaces ‘Dalvik’ (named after the Icelandic village where creator Dan Bornstein’s ancestors lived) which has performed this task since Android first appeared.
As you might expect Dalvik was getting very long in the tooth and it wasn’t that great in the first place. In giving it the boot users will get two significant benefits
1. More Speed
Dalvik uses the ‘Just-in-time’ (JIT) process which means it has to transform app source code into an executable program every time it starts.
Android apps have to run through a conversion each time they are started.
By contrast ART uses the ‘Ahead-of-time’ (AOT) process and this compiles (aka does the conversion) when an app is installed.
Using this method apps can launch up to twice as quickly which will have a dramatic effect on the sense of speed of your phone.
2. Better battery Life
AOT processing is making app-launch a less intensive process, so your phone doesn’t have to work as hard which increases battery life.
Using your phone you won’t see a major difference, but significant gains will come in standby as apps which run in the background will now do so more efficiently

Downsides of ART
1. It uses more storage Or to be more precise your installed apps will use more storage – roughly 10% to 20%.
This is because the pre-compiled apps which allow ART to run so quickly and efficiently have to be installed this way which makes them bigger compared to Dalvik’s on-demand method.
For those with a lot of apps installed this could take a significant chunk of your available space, they will also take a little longer to install.
2. Some apps are incompatible on Android 4.4.2, if you do find a key app that doesn’t work it is possible to switch back to Dalvik.

Q: Where is superuser?
A: Superuser is nicely integrated in Settings/Advanced Options!

Q: Battery draining quickly
A: Install Better Battery Stats Google Play
XDA Thread on understanding BBS

Q: How do I remove system apps?
A:Go into Settings/SlimCenter/Slimsizer. Tick the boxes for the apps you want to remove and then click the delete icon (bin) in the bottom right corner.

Q: Have an different ROM and want to come on to AOSP NeatROM, don't want to lose apps/data
A: Install Titanium and backup apps/data - Knowledge base
Full wipe - including - Delvik and Cache
Flash ROM flash gapps
Reboot
Install titanium
Restore your apps
Reboot
Activate art (optional)
Reboot

Q: Applications are not installing, insufficent space messages
A: se root explorer
Navigate to data/data
Find the application which you were installing (for e.g com.android.xposed)
Delete it
Install the application

    BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP...

    I strongly recommend performing a Nandroid backup before installing Rom


    Installation without wipe (Coming from previous build):

    -Download AOSP NeatROM and save zip to internal SDcard
    -Download Google Apps and save zip to internal SDcard
    -Boot into Recovery (Volume up + Home + Power)
    -Wipe cache and dalvik cache
    -Select Install zip from SD card
    -Flash NeatROM
    -Flash Google Apps (optional)
    -Reboot your device

    Installation with Full wipe:

    -Download AOSP NeatROM and save zip to internal SDcard
    -Download Google Apps and save zip to internal SDcard
    -Boot into CWM or PhilZ Recovery (Volume up + Home + Power)
    -DO A DATA WIPE / Clean to install a new ROM
    -Go to Advance and Select Wipe dalvik cache
    -Go to Mounts and storage, select Format system
    -Select Install Rom from SD card
    -Flash NeatROM
    -Flash Google Apps (optional)
    -Reboot your device

    Ultra clean installation [PhilZ CWM]:

    #1 Download Gaaps & ROM, move them to the external SDcard
    #2 Reboot to CWM (yeah, make sure you have the latest version.. :good:)
    #3 Perform these steps while in CWM:
    - Nandroid backup, choose external sdcard (nah, it's always good to have at least one!)
    - Install zip → choose zip from storage/sdcard1 -> make sure CWM recognizes your sdcard properly, if so, go back to the main menu,
    - Wipe data/factory reset → clean to install a new rom
    - Mounts and storage → format /data and /data/media (/sdcard) (it will erase all of your data from internal memory, make sure in #1 that you have the right one zips to flash rom placed in external!); it may take up to 30 seconds, wait patiently
    - flash NeatAOSP zip
    - flash gaaps
    - reboot system now

    P.S.1. Remember to backup data you want to keep, f.e. photos - place it on your computer temporary.
    P.S.2 It will NOT wipe your external storage(external SDcard I mean), don't worry. :)

    #4 be happy with fully cleaned device running smoothest AOSP rom here :cool:

    Thanks @malachow

    First off - check out the FAQ before posting

    * Use always latest version of recovery
    * To get Root working go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Root access
    * To activate ART go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Select runtime

    Q: How to set custom lockscreen wallpaper?
    A: Rename your image to "lockscreen_wallpaper.jpg" and copy it to data/NeatRomWallpaper/here (replace the original)

    Q: How to change DPI?
    A: Look here

    Q: Trying to flash, but I'm getting a status 7 error?
    A: Update your recovery (Get the latest Philz from here)

    Q: My Ext SD isn't being recognised any more?
    A: If your Ext SD is exFat, then format it as FAT32 don't forget to backup your data.
    (For Windows users - try using Easeus Partition Manager - see here)

    Q; Advanced Reboot doesn't seem to be working?
    A: To activate Advanced Reboot Options go to System Settings/Security/Advanced Reboot

    Q; ART doesn't seem to be working?
    A: To activate ART go to Dev Tools/Developer options/Select runtime and ensure "Use Art" is selected. Don't forget to reboot!!!
    If that doesn't work - then uninstall Xposed before changing to ART as Xposed doesn't work with ART. (see here)

    Q: ART is not working, causing application issues I have xposed framework installed
    A: Art should work fine as long as if you are not using xposed framework
    Use root explorer
    Navigate to system/bin
    Check to see if you have 'app_process.orig'
    If so delete it and try ART again

    Q: What is ART - http://source.android.com/devices/tech/dalvik/art.html
    A: ART stands for ‘Android RunTime’ and its job couldn’t be more important: it runs the apps on Android devices.
    ART replaces ‘Dalvik’ (named after the Icelandic village where creator Dan Bornstein’s ancestors lived) which has performed this task since Android first appeared.
    As you might expect Dalvik was getting very long in the tooth and it wasn’t that great in the first place. In giving it the boot users will get two significant benefits
    1. More Speed
    Dalvik uses the ‘Just-in-time’ (JIT) process which means it has to transform app source code into an executable program every time it starts.
    Android apps have to run through a conversion each time they are started.
    By contrast ART uses the ‘Ahead-of-time’ (AOT) process and this compiles (aka does the conversion) when an app is installed.
    Using this method apps can launch up to twice as quickly which will have a dramatic effect on the sense of speed of your phone.
    2. Better battery Life
    AOT processing is making app-launch a less intensive process, so your phone doesn’t have to work as hard which increases battery life.
    Using your phone you won’t see a major difference, but significant gains will come in standby as apps which run in the background will now do so more efficiently

    Downsides of ART
    1. It uses more storage Or to be more precise your installed apps will use more storage – roughly 10% to 20%.
    This is because the pre-compiled apps which allow ART to run so quickly and efficiently have to be installed this way which makes them bigger compared to Dalvik’s on-demand method.
    For those with a lot of apps installed this could take a significant chunk of your available space, they will also take a little longer to install.
    2. Some apps are incompatible on Android 4.4.2, if you do find a key app that doesn’t work it is possible to switch back to Dalvik.

    Q: Where is superuser?
    A: Superuser is nicely integrated in Settings/Advanced Options!

    Q: Battery draining quickly
    A: Install Better Battery Stats Google Play
    XDA Thread on understanding BBS

    Q: How do I remove system apps?
    A:Go into Settings/SlimCenter/Slimsizer. Tick the boxes for the apps you want to remove and then click the delete icon (bin) in the bottom right corner.

    Q: Have an different ROM and want to come on to AOSP NeatROM, don't want to lose apps/data
    A: Install Titanium and backup apps/data - Knowledge base
    Full wipe - including - Delvik and Cache
    Flash ROM flash gapps
    Reboot
    Install titanium
    Restore your apps
    Reboot
    Activate art (optional)
    Reboot

    Q: Applications are not installing, insufficent space messages
    A: se root explorer
    Navigate to data/data
    Find the application which you were installing (for e.g com.android.xposed)
    Delete it
    Install the application
