- SuperZen -

ROM is officially CLOSED

Standard Disclaimer: We are not responsible for you breaking your phone, your house, your car, your cat, your beer, etc. Make a backup before flashing! You never know what could go wrong.

Current ROM Version: 2.20.40.156
---> This is for the 551 model <---
----------​

** System takes quite a while to flash! Please be patient.

Requirements:
  • Your bootloader must be unlocked
  • Must flash in TWRP (possibly CWM?) - Not stock recovery
  • Clean flash if coming from anything other than a previous build of this

Info:
  • Deodexed
  • Insecure Boot
  • Black Splash Screen
  • Rooted w/ SuperSU
  • ADB enabled by default
  • Custom boot animation - By @thoughtlesskyle
  • Roam Theme pre-installed - By @thoughtlesskyle
  • Removed Junk - See below for details
  • Removed adb notification
  • Removed PCLink pop-up on Windows when connecting
  • Removed Headphone Notification & icon
  • Removed System Update / Notification
  • Flashable zips add-ins to bring back some of the apps if you want them (in second post)
  • Additional flashable zip that can be used to help bring stock users over to this without doing a clean flash (in second post)
  • Re-added the strangely removed WMV & WMA decoders, and the MPEG4 encoder codecs

To Do:
Still working on it to make it cleaner and slimmer.
Remove "External Storage Mounted" on every reboot

Broken Things:
A bunch of ASUS stuff is removed, so nothing is broken really, but you might be missing things if you use some of them.

Removed extra files associated with removed apps
Notes & Info
I don't want to modify the SysUI on this, due to pretty frequent updates from ASUS.

To change home screen Grid size:
Long Press on a blank space > Preferences > Home Screen > Grid Size

To remove "Do not disturb" notification:
Go to 'Settings' > 'Do not disturb' > (Very Bottom) 'Notification' > Off

To remove "Battery Ready" notification:
Go to 'Settings' > 'Battery' > Menu > 'Set Battery charging ready reminder' > Never (or whatever percent you want)

*Data removal flashable zip in second post. This can be used if you want to come from stock to this ROM. Flash full ROM first, then flash data removal. This will remove the updated Asus apps from the stock build, but will not wipe the rest of your data partition.

*This will not delete data or user installed apps. This will wipe /system so as to remove all the bloat, even if coming from stock doing an upgrade.

**Special Note: As always, please be sure to ask if you'd like to use any part of our changes. This is a custom ROM, not a base for you to build on. We have put a lot of time into making this work right (as the first custom ROM for the ZF2). Please don't just use this as your own without being the one to do the work.
**Graphics, Themes, etc: If you'd like to use any of the images, themes, splash screens, etc, please talk to @thoughtlesskyle. He's the graphic magician.

Add-Ons:
*Flash below files in TWRP after flashing ROM if you want to add them back in

------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
Remove Asus apps from Data:
Note: This is if you are coming from stock and have updated your apps.
If you clean flash (wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik) then you do not need this. This is if you're coming from stock and don't want to wipe everything out (keep your apps that you downloaded, etc). I still suggest a full, clean wipe.

Upon updating from the Play Store, the Asus apps are in /data/app, so just flashing SuperZen does not get rid of them.

This flashable zip will remove the same Asus apps from /data/app that are removed in the main ROM. This will not remove anything from system. It only cleans the data portion. *This does not remove Kindle, since people might actually use that.

Going to be a constant work in progress.

Please let me know if I missed anything that you personally removed. I'm still going to be tweaking it for quite a while. :highfive:
Definitely be giving this a try especially when the updates start to roll out :D
Do you think it's safe to remove update system app from system
I doubt very much I'd be using ota updates anyway

I know this is for the 551, but still tested on my 550 and it did not work :p even tried to replace the boot.img from the backup I made before, but still not booting =( oh well, had to try ;) restoring the full backup now...

Keep up the great work and if possible to the same for a 550 ROM

Thanks all

I'll download the full 550 ROM and see if I can get it working. Shouldn't be much different at all. I don't have a 550 to test with, but the scripts should all be the same, so that shouldn't be an issue.

I'll let you know when I have something worth testing. :good:

Updated to the most recent OTA, got rooted, got my bootloader unlocked, and got TWRP installed. Getting ready to put this on next. Exciting that there is custom development for ZenFone2 Now!
