Big THANKS to ALL DONORS! Much appreciated!


 
Welcome to the Galaxy S5, All Things Root, forum Sasa! :)

For those of you who have never heard of NEAT ROMs or their developer, salesale, he and his ROMs are already a legend on both the Galaxy S2 and S3 forums. The builds are stable, lean, mean and keen and his support for them is second to none.

If anyone is looking for a de-bloated ROM then I urge you to try NEAT ROM. :thumbup:

Hi Sasa!

I seem to be having a problem getting this ROM to use ART instead of Dalvik. I could not get Titanium Backup to freeze apps on ART on the stock, rooted, ROM and so I flashed yours and used TB to freeze some apps and then tried to switch to ART... but no go. Is this a restriction of the S5 firmware do you think?

(Alternative answer... It's me being thick! :stupid: )

Hey buddy art doesn't work well on deodexed roms. My next Rom will be odexed so please be patient. Glad to see you here :)

Hi Sasa! Good to see you developing in the S5 world!
Unfortunately I'm still with S4, but a certain person we know only too well lost his S4 frollicking in a haystack, and has since upgraded to an S5.
Now I wonder who that may be.............?

A haystack I could have handled... this was a ruddy great field of the stuff! :girlhit:

You're absolutely right butty.

:fight:

OK... so I got carried away in my excitement and forgot that Sasa's ROM was deodexed and therefore not compatible with ART. :stupid:

Cheers Sasa!

Am running NG7, odexed, on ART, as opposed to Dalvik, with no problems whatsoever. :thumb:

I have installed the ktoonsez TouchWiz kernel as this offers me a myriad of options via the KTweaker app.

I'm pleased to say that you have not disappointed me with your Galaxy S5 ROM in the least.

Keep up the good work my friend and here's some more beers to help you along the way, (Confirmation number: 6X5386539F6328419). :beer:

P.S. Is there any way that I can get a white background, (inverted), Contacts list, similar to the S4 SlimKat version?
