SlimRoms is a custom android operating system. The main goal is to offer users a slimmed down but still feature rich alternative to other android operating systems.
The entire SlimTeam work together to bring you this tailor-made beauty straight from Android Open Source Project (AOSP) source code.
All of the sources can be publicly viewed through GitHub and you can stop by the public Gerrit to submit patches of any type.

SlimKat is the project name for SlimRoms based on Android 4.4 and offers the following original features:
  • The Real Dark Slim
    • Full system-wide dark interfaces. - If you like it smooth and classy.
  • Custom Shortcuts. Everywhere.
    • Hardware keys, Navigation Ring, Navigation Bar, Lockscreen, Tiles, Notifications etc. - We've got you covered.
  • System-Wide Keyboard Controls
    • Rotation, cursor control, optional emoticions, etc. - You'll be tapping away to your heart's content.
  • SlimCenter
    • Downloads, contact information, system app removal. - More fun than you can shake a stick at.
  • Camera Features
    • Trueview, Smart Capture. - Capture life moments with ease.

Some hints:

1. Be sure you are on latest CWM or TWRP recovery!!!!!!

2. Not all gapps packages right now are nice working. You can try others but at least I know that the one linked here is working. If you have other gapps which are working you can link it here of course

3. Full wipe when coming from any 4.4 rom (as well format system manually please)

Reporting Bugs

When you submit a bug you want to make sure that nothing from your side is causing it. Otherwise your developer might be hunting a bug which doesn't really exist.

The best way to achieve this is by doing the following.

1. Make a nandroid backup.

2. Perform a full wipe (factory reset + wipe /system)
Now we have two different ways depending on what kind of problem you're having.

3a. When you're having a problem with a ROM function, flash just the ROM without GAPPS etc. and boot back into the system. You will boot directly onto the homescreen.

3b. When you're having a problem with a 3rd party app in combination with our ROM then flash the ROM and GAPPS.
Boot now back into the system. You will boot to the setup wizard.
Log in to your Google account but make sure that you untick "Restore from my Google Account to this phone/tablet".
Finish the setup and open the playstore and download only the app you're having problems with.

4. Start a logcat recording and reproduce the bug (if possible more than once) while taking the logcat. If you don't know how to get a logcat read this tutorial or this.

5. Post the logcat in a txt file (this is important because you otherwise clog up the threads with your log) in the correct thread.
Please also write detailed description how we can reproduce the bug.

6. Restore your backup from point 1 and wait for a fix (don't ask for ETAs).

    I just want to let you guys know that I have successfully compiled SlimKat for the S5. I am still working on a couple of bugs, but I will start a new thread and keep it up to date with new releases and new fixes when I am able to do so. Once it booted up, it showed the infamous red box around the screen and my base band was not detected. Those are the only two bugs that I found in my build. I am going to try to work on it some time today and get a build up for you guys. If not today, then it will be Friday night US time. I am coming off of pulling 24 hour duty right now and haven't slept in about 35 hours. I am not trying to step on the OP's toes or anything, but it seems like he is not updating this thread any time soon. I am also going to be working on Carbon Rom, Mokee and Paranoid Android as well. All issues will be fixed shortly. Just stay tuned for my threads. Have a great day guys.

    Thanks dude very nice to see this!

    You are so very welcome. I just did a quick build of it this morning. I have a G900T, so I will be needing testers for the other snapdragon models as well. I know that the red box issue and the base band not being detected is because I used the default overlays and APN list that SlimRoms use in their source code. I just have to go in and replace both of those and then rebuild. Hopefully I can get this actually put into Official status pretty soon. That would be really nice. :victory::D

    EDIT: I am now uploading my Beta build now and will start the thread as soon as it is done uploading for you guys to test out and give me feed back on. Thanks.
