    Presenting my Extremely De-bloated TouchWiz ROM:


    This will be the lightest TouchWiz ROM you ever will see! Just 586 MB
    See Please or Register to view links for the G900F/I/T/L/S/M/W8 XtreStoLite Aroma Add-on Package
    See Please or Register to view links for the G900H Exynos XtreStoLite version (ROM & Add-on package)
    And Please or Register to view links for latest Odin Bootloader & Modem packages for each model

    INTL. G900F/I/T/L/S/M/W8 version ROM Details:

    - Based on the latest Samsung Stock G900F XXU1ANG7 firmware (Base build date: 22-7-2014)

    - Options between the following 3 kernels:

    1. Stock XXU1ANG7 Kernel ONLY for the G900F (with bootloader ANG2+) & G900M (with bootloader ANG3+)
    2. Modded Stock Kernel (for the T/I/W8/L/S models and G900F/M with old bootloader)
    3. Latest KToonsez kernel
    - De-bloated ROM to approximately 500 MB!! (the other 85 MB are the choosable mods/tweaks/kernels)

    - All the standard features of Stock Android will work, so it's like an AOSP ROM with the TouchWiz launcher & SystemUI

    - Unique separate Aroma Add-on Package which includes all the removed Samsung 'bloatware' apps, so that you can flash at any timeyour missing app back... SEE POST #2

    - ROM still includes the original Samsung Gallery, Camera, Dialer, Messages, Music, Alarm & Calculator apps

    - Latest Google Keyboard (You can install the Samsung keyboard with the Aroma add-on package from post #2)

    - Latest SuperSu, BusyBox & Sqlite3 binary's integrated

    - KNOX fully removed

    - 100% Clean and correct installation script (by @_alexndr & me)

    - Native Call Recording
    - Optional working Private Mode (with the Aroma add-on package)

    - At every boot the FsTrim command will be excecuted, to keep your Phone smooth and the internal memory fast!

    - SD-card write permissions

    - Odexed (to keep it ART Runtime compatible, and to keep 100% original stock files = faster)

    - ART Runtime works (Make sure you haven't the Xposed Framework installed when using ART)

    - (Optional) CSC tweaks, like:

    ★ Add secondary symbols to the Samsung Keyboard
    ★ Native Call recording & Camera shutter sound button in the Samsung Camera app
    ★ Enable All Quick Toggles in the notification panel
    ★ Enable camera during call
    ★ TouchWiz Launcher is sorted Alphabetically at default

    - This ROM supports the following models: G900F, G900I, G900T, G900M, G900W8, G900L, G900S

    - Separate XtreStoLite Please or Register to view links & Please or Register to view links versions available

    - Option to choose between American or European regional values (to show the American 4G/LTE or European H+/4G data icons and the correct date/time format)

    -The ROM contains only 100% Original Stock files (No modded APK, Framework & lib files), this gives you the most stable, fastest & smoothest experience.

    - But if you really want some mods, then you still can choose between 5 different mods when installing the ROM:
    • Advanced Reboot Menu
    • Remove Safe Sound warning
    • Remove S-Finder & QuickConnect buttons in the Notification drawer

    • See Post #2 for the Aroma Add-on Package, so that you can choose which Samsung Apps / functions you want back.
      You can use this Aroma add-on package at any time after flashing this rom (So you can first use the rom barebone and look for yourself which app/feature you want to have back)
    • Settings -> Wallpaper FC's!? That's normal... because you have to flash the Samsung Wallpaper picker add-on with the XtreStoLite Aroma Add-on Package for this (see post #2)
    • The ART runtime is still experimental, and I don't recommend to use it. You will also get slightly better performance with the Dalvik runtime.
    • The aim of this ROM is to keep it as close to the stock firmware as possible. Because this way the ROM is the most stable you can get, and also you don't have any mods that can have influence on the performance and/or battery life of the ROM.
      Also you can tweak the interface on your own nowadays with Xposed Framework plugins like: Wanam Xposed, GravityBox & Xposed G-TouchWiz.
    • If you're experiencing ANY issue, then first make sure that you're on the latest bootloader/firmware (see post #4 for latest one for your model), and that you've done an clean install (data/factory reset before installing the ROM).
      Also some Xposed modules can cause some issues, first disable all your Xposed modules and see if the problem still exist for you.
    • With the Xposed G-TouchWiz plugin you can remove/hide the S-Finder & QuickConnect buttons in the notification panel.
      And with the 'Galaxy S5 Widgets' Xposed module you can getwidgets on your lock-screen.
      So please don't ask in this thread if I can add an mod for those functions.
    • With the Xposed plugin XSecureStorage you can still use the Private Mode & S-Health without any problem in combination with all the included mods (which are in this ROM) & the Xposed framework.
      (If you're getting continual an Health Service force close after installing this Xposed plugin, then Clear the app data of both S-Health & HealthService apps in Settings -> App manager)
    • If you do use Philz/CWM recovery, then you can get an warning when you try to reboot after flashing, that the su binary is not installed or to restore the recovery... always answer NO to those questions (otherwise you will lose root)
    • I strongly recommend to install SVoice with the Aroma add-on package, even if you don't use SVoice, just to disable the Home key SVoice launch delay in SVoice. (Svoice -> Menu key -> Settings -> De-select: Open via the home key)
      After disabling this option, the home key will react much quicker when you press it.
      You can disable the Svoice app if you want after this (Settings -> Application Manager -> All -> S Voice -> Disable), but do not delete the app data of it.
    • I recommend to set all the 3 Animation settings to 0.5 in the Developer settings menu, for much faster animations (and experience).
      How to:
      - Enable the Developer Options (Settings -> About Device -> 8x tap the Build number)
      - Go to the Developer Options (Settings -> Developer options)
      - Scroll down, and set:
      'Window animation scale' to 0.5
      'Transition animation scale' to 0.5
      'Animator duration scale' to 0.5
      - Enjoy the faster animations!
    • All the Google Play Store apps are NOT included in the ROM (or Aroma add-on package), you can download those by yourself in the Play Store.
    • If you did choose the KToonsez kernel option in the installer of the ROM, then make sure you accept the SuperSu root permission promt after first boot-up.
    • If you choose to use the KToonsez kernel, then an custom kernel profile (by @LuigiBull23) will be automatically set as default kernel settings... This profile has an slightly OC (2,6 GHz) on the CPU at default.
      The kernel settings can you tweak by yourself with the KTweaker app.
    • If you experience reboots with the Ktoonsez kernel, then try to disable the OC on the CPU with the Ktweaker app (decrease max. CPU frequency to 2,45 Ghz) or increase the CPU voltages with 25 or 30 mV
    • If you're experiencing any other issue/bug while using the KToonsez (or any other custom) kernel, then always first flash back the Stock Samsung kernel, and look if you still experience the issue/bug, before you post an reply here about your issue/bug.
    • The 'OK Google' voice command for the Google Search app works only if you have set your system language to one of the supported languages for this voice command.
    • If you choose to use the ART runtime, then the first reboot after you did choose the ART runtime will take a very long time to boot up. The bootscreen shows up longer than usual (around the 3 minutes), and after that the 'Android is upgrading...' screen will take a few minutes)
