Can you include SoundAlive as an option? Flashable zip, preferable?

EDIT: I see it is preinstalled, but it doesn't work in spotify. Any chance it can be made to work, maybe with a newer version, from the S5?

This ROM is great. But for some reason the Messages app takes ages to open. Do you know why this is? It happens with a fresh install.

    StockWiz
    Touchwiz Stock Experience
    Smooth and stable as possible


    Introduction
    I am aware that our smartphone is really obsolete and this ROM comes late.
    I just wanted to do justice to this glorious drive that has been with me for so many years and it is still working and quite fast.

    Why this ROM
    During last years I enjoyed installing many custom ROMs and kernels, but while I was having fun most of the time I was wasting my time experiencing reboots, crashing apps, unstable kernels, battery draining fast, thousand of other minor/big issues.

    I treasured all my experience and created my ROM following my thoughts.
    This ROM was only for me and now I want to share it with you.

    What is this ROM
    *ONLY STOCK EXPERIENCE*, no mods, no custom apps.
    This will remain as clean and stable as possible.
    I just removed all bloatware, unlocked all csc features and repacked it with the latest patches I’ve found.

    What is NOT this ROM
    In this ROM there aren’t any custom or modded apps.
    There are lot of other awesome ROMs plenty of nice mods. Pick one of them if you are looking for non stock experience.
    Feel free to change by yourself your Launcher and your keyboard (I personally use Nova Launcher and SwiftKey).
    Feel free even to use it for your mods or apply root.

    Features - (TL: DR; Full stock)
    • Stock Kernel
    • Stock Firmware Touchwiz
    • Based on QK1
    • No root (you can root this rom if you want)
    • Security patch 2017-08-01
    • DeBloated
    • DeKnoxed
    • ZipAligned
    • Odexed (Is faster and stable than DeOdexed ROMs)
    • Disabled Quick Connect S-Finder Buttons
    • Minimal build.prop optimizations
    • Stock switch-on switch-off logos
    • English as default language (available lot of languages)
    • CSC: Camera unlocked features (shutter sound menu and more)
    • CSC: Call unlocked features (Record calls and more)
    • CSC: Messages unlocked features (recipient limit 999 and more)
    • CSC: Enabled Display Mirroring
    • CSC: Other Misc

    All is built to have the smooth and stable ROM ever.
    Please do not ask features that are not on stock firmwares
    Any advice or constructive criticism are welcome.

    Installing - (TL: DR; TWRP, QK1, Only i9505)
    • TWRP recovery request.
    • Copy the zip StockWiz_v[x.x]_[date]_[features].zip into your SD Card.
    • Backup your data
    • Reboot into Recovery mode.
    • Install "StockWiz_v[x.x]_[date]_[features].zip".
    • Wipe Cache and Dalvik
    • Restart the device.
    • Done!
    • Manually uninstall applications like Shazam if you don’t need them (I’ll remove them in next releases). Change your launcher and keyboard if you want (I suggest Nova Launcher and SwiftKey). You can also apply root.
    • N.B.: if there is signal or WiFi issue, it needs to flash again. If the problem persists you have to flash *twice* any stock QK1 firmware with ODIN

    Wi-Fi won't turn on problem FIX

    Ok, installed right now
    Some *issues with wifi (wont turn on)* and find a stock rom (QK1) is very hard in 2019 (too slow download speed)
    But if anyone have the same problem, can easily fix follow the post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s4/i9505-develop/rom-untouched-stock-rom-t3419034
    Downloading the rom and flash it or *just flash with odin modem and bootloader files*
    It works right now ;)
    Enjoy!
