[ROM] TOUCHLITE GE TOUCHWIZ Version 1.1 for the Google Edition Galaxy S IV

Welcome to the TOUCHLITE GE TOUCHWIZ ROM ( version 1.1 ) based off of the[ROM][MGA][26July] Barebone Firmware V3 by Stavr0s91i which is a I9505XXUBMGA Base debloated deodexed Touchwiz Firmware. First a Big Thank you to Stavr0s91i, for the Base to work with and Illogic6, nfsmw_gr who also made it possible for us to get this far. Finally a Big Thank you to Ktoonsez for his tireless work developing Kernal's. After a couple of months of modification we have something to start with here. I spent over a month using Stavr0s91i work to cut down the MH1 base with no success but thanks to Illogic6 he did get the Barebone firmware to boot by adding some libs and modules from the 4.3 OTA. I added some tweaks, applications, a kernel, and made some other modifications to come up with this lightweight and stable Touchwiz ROM. I have been testing it for almost a week and I have been very pleased with how nice it performs, the battery life is good as well. ALOHA from MJ

MD5 Check 7F3E25422A04B7BE0CDB651793B22C2D

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. For the Best Performance Odin back to stock and Wipe Data to make space for Touchwiz ( Please Refer to the Odin threads ) You can store nandroid backups on your external SD card.

2. Place the TouchLite GE ROM on your SD Card

3. TWRP Recovery Recommended, WIPE data, cache, and dalvik 3 times, Wipe System once.

4. Install Zip from SD Card, ( Wipe cache and dalvik, Reboot and Enjoy ) Patience Booting up takes awhile.

When the ROM boots up it looks very bare so you will have to set up your Google account from settings, email, or the Play store and set up your lock screen and widgets. Also please note that you will have to probably input your APN ( Access Point Names ) so that Data works. I personally had to input my AT&T APN's.

Bugs & Reporting

As with any Custom ROM nothing is a 100% perfect. If you have found a legitimate bug please post as much information as possible so that I can address it. I cannot promise when or if this ROM or any other work I am involved in will be updated due to changes, time, or other things I am involved in which may take priority.

BTW the added the transparent clock weather widget because it has more customization and looks great. The Galaxy Note 3 sketchbook application is pretty nice as well.

I am not sure if anyone has used Flayvr but the Gallery is very nice

Yey finally! :)

Quick question though... Last night I was bored out of my mind, so I flashed one lite touchwiz rom from the i9505 and I flashed the 4.2.2 kernel after that, and I noticed that when im on the call, and i move the phone close to me and away, and the screen starts turning on and off - at some point it just turns off, and gets stuck.

I wanted to make sure that this does not happen on here too.

Other than that - thank you, sir :)

Alright,

A few things.

1st - the clock on the lockscreen is missing. Like, its there, but its invisible. It only shows up once I receive a txt msg.

2nd - Initial start of the rom - it will automatically load up. It doesn't ask about google account. Which means that once I set up my google account - it would not install all my existing applications back.

EDIT: To fix the clock - you have to go to settings->my device->lockscreen->lockscreen widgets->clock or personal message->choose clock->save
It does not work with personal message. Also, for some reason - weather is also missing.

Will report with more bugs shortly :)

Those are not bugs. This ROM is very light lots of things were removed like the google sign in and you have to set up your lock screen the way you want, widgets the way you want. If your looking for something that is pure stock with everything already running and set up out of the box this isn't for you.

Touchwiz is just too big for our partition so some sacrifices have to be made :eek:

The screenshot was how I set up mine you can configure yours as you wish

great so far

I've been running since the release and haven't had any issues yet. Very quick :)

The only thing I did was install the email app from Aroma so I could still use it for work.

I'll keep using it for another week and report any issues I find

Good job on this release

I am interested in getting email app as well. Could you explain how you got it from Aroma?

Finally got to test the ROM last night....very smooth and fast. I've had no booting issues compared to the many other GE ROMs.

Thank you for your persistence!

Anyone know the right combo of installs to get the voice commands working for the camera?

I've installed S-Voice via Aroma and that gets me to the point of setting it up but once I say "shoot" "cheese" etc, nothing happens. Several of the other S-Voice commands seem to work fine but this one is stumping me.

    Any thoughts on updating this based on the leaked 4.4.2 TW ROM for the 9505? I've been able to slim down the system partition , but only to 1.7G, which is still well over the 1.18G allotment from Google ...
