Do full backup before installation and wipe data/cache (factory reset) after installation (only from stock ROM).

    I like SlimRom. It has some little diseases yet, but I prefer SlimRom to the Carbon now.

  • ezail says:

    how to enable BLN? Please help

  • Yoniverh says:

    how do i install it?? lot of people say you need a special version of gapps and that you need to use CWM recovery..

  • erikbotta says:

    slimrom+ART+f2fs – for me really very good experience for the first week of use.

  • Drew Wesley says:

    SlimROM 4.3 was the most stable of these custom roms when I used them. I’m back to stock rom but anticipate this one to be the best. Does this rom have the random reboot issue?

  • FoReNeo says:

    slim rom 6.4!!!!

  • shakaal says:

    I’m currently on carbon 4.4.4, I was wondering how is the battery life on slim, thanks in advance

  • Nemoo says:

    the battery keeps much more then in Carbon. I’ve got 75% juice left in it after 23 hours. I’ve not did to much with the phone though, just install 2-3 apps from the play store, checked the mail for a few times, 3 phone calls, not more then 15 min in total and received 1 sms. The wifi was off except when I was need it to check the mail and use the play store.

  • Nemoo says:

    not had any problem so far. Many thanks to the developers. By the way, do anyone know where I can see the history of cpu usage and frequency used by each app? Or can recommend an app for that?

  • Parasoi says:

    still have clockfreeze sometime. really anyoing πŸ™

  • Olli says:

    Hey Cool ROM. Use it for over a week now. No clock freezes after clearing dalvik cache from twrp263. Great battery management – 6% in 3 hours with mostly on standby. I like this one better than cmod11.

  • Drew Wesley says:

    I’m currently using stock but am considering a switch to this rom for an obvious list of reasons:
    * 4.4.4 Kit Kat
    * Brighter OLED
    * F2FS, ART
    I had issues with prior rom versions involving text message drafts getting ported to other threads when checking incoming texts, and automatic restarting. Are these issues prevalent in this rom?

  • Toescht says:
