Disclaimer: This rom is highly experimental and has less features than a normal rom, it is possible that you may encounter issues. Mainly intended to be used as a base for building stock based custom roms. Backup everything you can't afford to lose. I'm not responsible for anything.

Intro​

Barebones ROM is the lightest ROM yet to exist for XZP with nothing much to expect. Made for expert & power-users.

Features​

  • Literally nothing more than an Android brick that can take photos and make calls.
  • Extremely light.
  • No bloatware
  • Cool DNA boot animation
  • Made by an amateur Android modder, expect bugs.
  • Modular system (lmao, I basically split zip packages to call it modular), allowing you to choose between different app packages.
  • Battery life is somewhat better than stock.

What works​

  • Camera
  • Calling
  • Messaging (You might need to open once after fresh install)
  • Mobile Data
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi
  • NFC
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Audio enhancement, Clear audio+ (Only tested Spotify, you may need some magisk modules for advanced use)
  • Second profile
  • Stamina mode
  • Work profile for use with Shelter(Island)
  • Location (MicroG+Dejavu, took 5 minutes for first lock, if it is crucial for you, use GApps)
  • Call recording (Axet's call recorder with magisk module)
  • GravityBox
  • Xposed
  • MicroG

What may not work​

  • Region based roms (This rom was only tested on TUR region since I already had that)
  • VoLTE
  • Screencasting
  • If you have low signal, you might miss calls (unreachable).

What won't work​

  • Video enhancement :(
  • Stock messaging app (replaced with QKSMS)
  • Hotspot settings, to learn password go to "/data/misc/wifi/softap.conf", changing this file is not recommended. Can't share with NFC either.
  • Hotspot also won't work if Afwall is not giving access to apps with Root Access (weird bug), just disable temporarily.

Pre-requirements​

BAREBONES ROM v1.01
TWRP 3.6.1 or above
47.2.A.10.107 (Latest Pie 9.0)
Make backup of all your data

Dirty flashing is encouraged if you are already on stock (existenz is not counted as a stock). You may see what might be broken when you use this rom or system just won't boot at all.​


Installation Guide​

  1. Open TWRP.
  2. Tap Wipe.
  3. Swipe the Factory reset on the bottom. (skip if want to dirty flash)
  4. Go back

  11. If you like dark theme to automatically turn on in apps, open developer settings > night mode > always on.

Post installation​

Install Magisk
Install either GApps or MicroG + F-Droid or NeoStore + Aurora Store.
Install EDXposed + Riru 25.4.4 if you are going to use XPrivacy since it is easier, otherwise just use LSPosed.

Sony Pack: Includes Sony app suite, Clock, Album, Music, Dialer, Contacts, Messages​
