Ril issues from 25->26
Camera bug from 26->27
Flashlight bug from 25->27
NFC doesn't work
BT doesn't work properly
that's what I remember now, but there's more...
Oh, and try to change app permissions in Privacy Guard :)

And they call it beta. It's an alphy, and very early.
Now, let's wait, maybe this weekend we'll see SlimLP first build. I'm sure they did it properly :)

in CM 12 for me, BT works fine with gps and phone call in the same time in my car (with BT connection).
Yes for privacy guard, impossible to change permissions!

Some good news: Tylog announced that today may come the 1st version of SlimLP :)

That's not good news bro .

LP is AWFUL! I don't know what Google were thinking "let's make a perfectly good OS and totally mess it up and make it all colourful and childish, just like iOS"

LOL - so you are talking about the theming of L and yes, it is a bit errm - white and green admittedly. But surely the more important thing is the vastly improved code, the speed and performance of L is noticeable already over KK, it can only get better and better. Actually, compared to the roll out of KK - L is already stable, this time last year KK ROM's were still far too bugged to use as daily drivers.

IMO L has a lot of promise, and as the base of ROM's becomes more and more stable so comes the further development of all the usual custom ROM's with all the options to make them pretty the way you want ie: TRDS ;)

I'm running LP now on my OPO and it's fast and (almost) stable. Liking it very much.
Only having some BT issues with the latest build.

Yeah I agree, it is a nice, fast and stable ROM :)

I was just blown away by the uglyness of it and the colourful icons etc.
I was using TRDS and all my apps atc are blacked out so I guess it was a shock lol

    SlimSaberKat
    Unofficial SlimKat build - Alucard kernel
    Rom built with SaberMod 4.8.4 toolchain
    Kernel built with SaberMod 4.9.2 toolchain
    Fast, smooth and stable


    I proudly present SlimSaberKat.
    SlimSaberKat is built from SlimKat source with SaberMod 4.8.4 compiler and "JustArchi's ArchiDroid Optimizations" V3 build optimisations like O3, strict aliasing and many more to make the ROM even faster and smoother. If you want to see all optimization flags set for building this ROM, have a look a look at this commit, line 73-83.
    I could cherry-pick some commits ahead from SlimRom team or patches from other repositories if I find them useful.

    If you want to know more about build optimization and the build flags used to build SlimSaberKat I can advise you to read this post by @JustArchi.

    SlimSaberKat ROM comes with Alucard's great AOSP kernel.

    I will follow the weekly and stable builds of the official ROM and if there are interesting commits I will try to make a midweekly build.

    Disclaimer
    I'm not responsible for any damages on your device.
    Please don't discuss these "unofficial" builds in the official SlimKat thread.

    Coming from previous SlimKat (official or unofficial) build:

    F.A.Q

    No root
    Q: I did a clean flash and don't have root access.
    A: Rood access is disabled by default on SlimKat. you need to enable it in "Developer options" set root access for Apps and ADB.

    New gapps
    Q: There is a new gapps version, how do I flash it.
    A: Minor gapps updates can be flashed on top off the old version. For major updates it's often recommended by the Slim team to wipe the systems partition and flash ROM and gapps. Alternatively you can deleted system/addon.d/80-gapps.sh or 81-aio_gapps.sh and flash ROM and gapps. This prevents the old gapps to be restored during ROM flash but will allow you to keep all other custom scripts in the addon.folder.

    Removed system files
    Q: I have removed a couple of system apps, do I need to do that again after every dirty ROM flash.
    A: A dirty ROM flash will restore all the ROM's system apps.You can however use a script to remove whatever you want from the ROM when you dirty flash a ROM. See this and this post on how to do that and many other cool things you can do with those scripts.

    DPI settings
    Q: How can i change the DPI and what's the original S4 stock DPI.
    A: DPI Settings are not included in the ROM yet, until then you can use Texdroider DPI. Default Stock DPI is 480.

    New kernel flash
    Q:I flashed a new Alucard kernel (or SlimSaberKat with new kernel included) and now not everything is working as expected.
    A:This can happen when the kernel settings options are changed (in Ramdisk), to correct this delete the "data/.alucard" folder and reboot. That will reset your kernel setting.

    Dalvik to ART
    Q: How do I switch from Dalvik to ART, how do I do it.
    A: As with every major change, start by making a backup, the follow this tutorial by @Jimsilver73

    SlimKat stock kernel
    Q: Where can I download the SlimKat stock kernel
    A: It can be found here, thanks to @hawkerpaul

    Tips and tricks

    • If you want to make Slim even Slimmer @s3icc0 made an overview of apps that are safe to remove

    • To make you're phone feel even faster consider lowering "Windows animation scale", "Transmission animation scale" and "Animation duration scale" in Developer options. Also if you are using Nova Launcher you might want to increase the Scroll and Animation speed.

    I know a lot of you have been waiting to have Lockscreen Notifications (LSN) in the ROM.
    I made a first test build with LSN integrated in the ROM.

    Features:
    - Pocket mode turn screen on when phone is pulled out of pocket and turn it off when phone gets back in pocket
    - Hide low priority notifications
    - Hide non-clearable notifications
    - Allow dismissing even non-clearable notifications from lockscreen
    - Just turn screen on when there's currently a notification pending
    - Toggle between expanded and normal notification view by longpressing
    - Wake on new notification
    - Configure notification count displayed at once
    - Privacy Mode: Hide notifications content on secure lockscreen.
    - Blacklist apps
    - Show all/dismiss all button, does not dismiss on going notifications, they must be swiped away
