It can't be compiled. It wont install with many removed system apps. Ill try with custom kernel this days.

it was a simple question of why not help me to get it back..
and of course I'll take a other rom now...when I meet unfriendly people like (radicalisto)

Dude do not even go the "radicalisto" is unfriendly route. I responded to you regarding the manner in which you posted. IF you had read the OP you would have known that Live Wallpaper was NOT included.

Regardless of the post or your opinion of me, I am glad you got sorted courtesy of theresident., heaven forbid one should actually have to read OP's and not get spoonfed.....
@theresident I am sorry for hijacking your thread, your work is appreciated :good:

Ran your ROM for 2 days and encountered no major flaws whatsoever. Runs quite smooth.
I´m just missing samsungs stock email app. i know you put android stock mail in, but for exchange accts it´s just not as comfortable. But other than that i like the idea of throwing out bloat. From my HTC OneX Days i remember a dev who put the missing apps into cloud storage and an empty zip container as well where you could create recovery-flashable update.zips and flash that one app you´re craving for in an otherwise lean rom. Would that be a possibility for the future?
Cause it seems for now you stand out with yr slimmed out version (there´s market share to gain! :) )

I noticed that flash isn't working. But I'm not sure this is Kitkat issue or slim ROM issue, can anyone confirm this?

    NOTE: If you stuck in bootloop or blackscreen after installation reflash custom kernel... it depends of the device (lean or faux kernel sounds good in this moment)

    P.S. - Even HAL was saying "I'm completely operational, and all my circuits are functioning perfectly" still had, like i said some FC's. Any suggestions are welcomed. If i remove very nececary app, if I think is worted i will inserted in some i hope future builds.. anyway you can always instaled in /system/app by your self. Ill try to make it even more SLIM.
    new HAL with MK2 base on the air
    Im working on "private" MK2 base.. if its good, ill will notify you :)
