Development Temporarily Discontinued

I'm sad to say that I will be discontinuing the development of JoelDroid S5.
The main reason is, that I have become bit more preoccupied with my personal life and priorities.
The second reason is that I have switched back to Kitkat (XXU1ANJ1), just couldn't stand the Lollipop colors and white background and the lack of Xposed framework. Since I wont be updating my device back to Lollipop there is no point me just putting up releases without testing.

but mainly I have more personal commitments and less time to develop these.

I had a wonderful time here in this thread, and thanks for all the feedback and kind words.

[UPDATE] I will be back when Stock 5.1.1 is available for Galaxy S5

Cheers
Joel.

Recommended Apps For Better Experience

Install Instructions
  1. Your phone needs to be rooted and should have a custom recovery
  2. As far as recoveries go, I highly recommend TWRP use the following link to get the latest TWRP for S5 and use it with the above method.
  3. Take a Nandroid backup, better be safe than sorry.
  4. Take an EFS Backup using wanam's EFS Backup App
  5. Copy your EFS backup for safe keeping.
  6. Copy ROM to sd-card and boot to recovery and flash, after flashing DO NOT reboot, but power off.
  7. Press vol down + home + power and reboot into download mode and install the provided bootloader and modem, flashing the modem is optional but your current modem has to be a lollipop modem or else you wont get a signal. But flashing the given bootloader IS A MUST, without the necessary bootloader the ROM will not boot, see post #4 for detailed Odin flash instructions.

Download JoelDroid S5 2.6.1 XXU1BOD3
Download BOD3-BL-BootLoader
Download BOD3-CP-Modem


NOTE: If the ROM does NOT boot for you, then you probably forgot or did not correctly update your bootloader...

So where is the list of removed apps? And is there any mod included in the Rom?
I have included a list of removed apps. I'm stuck with some work. I will upload an aroma installer to install whatever removed.
For the list of removed items please see the 1st post.
Also as of now there will be no mods, and whatever mods you need to install xposed framework. I'm not wasting my time as this is the initial release. But when Lollipop comes our way (hopefully in December) there will be lots of Mods and tweaks as Xposed will take some time to materialize.

    I will be back when Android 5.1 arrives

    So sorry guys,
    I have been busy lately.
    As for the kitkat I will not be releasing a ROM, as it takes too much time and at the moment I do not have any spare time.

    But I will be releasing active builds when Samsung brings out Android 5.1 for Galaxy S5.
    I'm temporarily on CyanogenMod 12.1.

    Till that I'm definitely not using Samsung Stock 5.0 firmware...
    So I will be back, FOR SURE...
