Theme engine, Pocket peek notifications, and that this rom is the only rom that runs really well on this phone. Much better than stock, and the smoothest experience i've ever had on this phone.

I was going to trash it but now i'll keep it until chinkphones pump out Android L phones and android Wear

Better battery, less bloat, nice built in customization for theming or usefulness.

My only negative for being on a custom rom is the fact I can't use wifi calling with T-Mobile.

It takes calls, texts, connects to the internet, and plays the shows/movies I put on it.

Assuming that you'd get a Note 3 Neo for 29,570 Rs (as listed on Samsung site ~500 USD) you can get a Note 2 for much cheaper and have a very similar experience, and possibly more software updates.

it has a fuck ton of customization features, my favorite feature though is probably how the phone automatically turns on/off when I take it out of my pocket.

Honestly I'd reccomend getting an HTC E8 or HTC M7, but a Note 2 is a solid option if you install a custom ROM and get a case.

Xperia ZR, maybe you could import a US Nexus 5.
>>
>>42912071
That's a good point, I've only rooted one HTC phone and it was definitely a pain in the ass.

As for sense it's not really that bad anymore but I don't care for android skins.

It should be illegal for carriers to lock the bootloader of the phones. Thats equivalent to a car dealer locking the hood of your car. What the fuck? why is this allowed...
>>
>>42912143
Because consumers don't care

What ROMs are good for people who care about privacy?
>>
>>42912152
Pretty much this.
>>
>>42912160
Stock AOSP, don't install gapps, install x-posed framework and get X-privacy. it lets you control the permissions for each app. use it to quarantine every app off from any personal info.
>>
>>42912143
oh yeah well how come I can't modify my car's built in computer/firmware?
>>
>>42912143

If you don't want your carrier to lock your phone, don't buy your phone from your carrier.
>>
>>42912143
They lock it for security reasons.
You can just unlock it if you want, no one stops you.
You usually void your warranty unlocking it because they don't want faggots who brick their phones changing them everyday.
>>
>>42912190
you cant "just unlock it". people have to find an exploit first. and sometimes that doesn't happen.

for instance: verizon galaxy S5

its been months and still no way to unlock it.

Feels good. Active notifications are cool but so far touchless controls are less useful. Just switched to ART today, we'll see if it's any quicker or better on battery
>>

Do you have root or no?
>>
>>42912325
I do.
I tried using motoxposed to change some stuff around, but it doesn't seem to work.
>>
>>42912344
How do you have root on 4.4.3? I thought the system directory was locked and root was impossible?
>>
>>42912389
No idea what you mean.
I unlocked the bootloader when I got it, updated to 4.4.3, and then flashed TWRP recovery. I got root after that.
I read you can disable read/write protection permanently as well, but I didn't use that method.
>>
>>42911618
Use towelroot. If you fuck it up then you don't deserve a phone.

Franco Kernel ver. 209.

Fucking awesome combination, super happy with it. I was using Carbon before, but after KitKat they changed the PIE to SlimPIE which in my opinion is fucking horrible and clunky. So PA has the best version of PIE even though it is heavily missing features I wish was there.

Might try out Android L Dev Preview on it now that it arrived for the N4, however I'm not sure I can live without Xposed.

yo how is the carbon rom for S3
im using slimrom for my s3
>>
>>42923657
I'm not them but I tried Carbon ROM about 4 months ago and was having awful lagging and overheating issues. Slim runs nice and smooth but I'm on CM11 now because I wanted to use themes.
>>
Where do you guys get your themes and icons?
>>
>>42923759
Play Store or XDA
>>
>>42923759
XDA Mega theme thread, there's a ton of free ones on there.
>>
>>42923284
Depends on the stability of the ROM, and whether or not you properly configure the radios if the ROM you're flashing requires them. As for babby's first custom ROM, look at Cyanogenmod or SlimROMs.
As for the guide, Google is your friend. Or DuckDuckGo if you're one of the tinfoil-hatters. There should be a one-click root for the Lucid somewhere but maybe I'm wrong. Always make sure that the root method you're using is for the version of Android that you're currently running. Amateur mistake, but that's how I got my first soft-brick.

>>42923284
Yes everything will work as normal on your phone.

>>42911864
>Removable battery
What kind of feature is that? It's like you want your phone to be less sturdy and more pricey for no benefit at all.
>Good battery life
Well, you have a smartphone with 720p+ screen that runs on latest gen networks (which are enormous battery hogs), what do you expect? Same battery life as your 10 years old Nokia that had 120x340 pixel screen and could hardly connect to Edge?
>SD card slot
I could understand this if you had only a smartphone and tv. I have 16gb Nexus 4 with broken ROM installation (cba to full wipe it at this moment) that only allows me to use 5.67gb of space. I have lots of songs there, some applications, pictures and still over 1.5gb of free space. Only time I maxed out this space was when I went for a trip without laptop so I put there a whole series to watch on a bus.

I swear to god, people just refuse to accept some technologically beneficial just because they are set in their ways.
>>
>>42924287
I wish you nexus shills would stop compromising just because you have some baseless vendetta against Samsung. You guys are letting Google get away with killing AOSP.
>>
>>42924482
I'm not a Nexus shill. I just prefer a much better engineering piece than something manufactured by company that spends more money on advertising rather than R&D. Not to mention that it was Samsung that started killing Android and smartphone market. If it wasn't for their Touchshit and hardware quality, we could be enjoying much better devices with apple leaving the smartphone market.
>>
stock roms are the only way to go these days
the shit drivers on aosp roms are gonna hold aosp back from now
>>
>>42924668
What are you fucking talking about? Samsung is the only reason why Android is ahead of Apple. It started with the S2 then the Galaxy nexus then the S3 then the note 2 then the S4. HTC was always fucking awful and their only good phone was Windows Mobile 6.5. Also last time I checked, Jellybean, KitKat, and L are copypasting features and looks from TouchWiz.
>>
>>42924866
>stock android copying a cluttered, laggy, gimmicky UI instead of using a clean, minimal design.

Nice try though m8
>>
Anyone tried the CM Installer? I'm going to try it tomorrow on my Gs4. Hopefully it will work.
>>
>>42927320
Works well, basically unlocks the boot loader, flashes a custom CWM based recovery, and then flashes a stable branch of CM11. From there you can stick with CM or flash a different ROM honestly. Just remember: DO NOT flash a nightly build over a stable, always do a factory data wipe from recovery before installing any ROM unless it's an update to your current one.
>>
Hey, i just bought Nexus 5 and im wondering what ROM should i install on it? CM11S, Paranoid Android, or anything else. My first real Android phone btw. Thanks
>>
>>42928290
It's all about which features you want. Cyanogenmod has a nice balance of customization and performance. There are many other Cyanogen/AOSP, and even stock, based ROMs available for the Nexus 5, just check the XDA android development.
>>

Nexus 4.
ParanoidAndroid 3.99 (yes, that particular version)
Actually usable pie. Customizable quick settings tiles. DPI adjustment.

I'm afraid I'll stay on this version of PA for a very long time because newer ones are I've seen so far are far less stable and are missing important settings. Maybe I'll check out PAC-man later. Can't be bothered right now.
>>
LG G2 (D800)
CloudyPro II
Modified stock, so not much other than some battery improvements and LG bloat taken away. Want to keep on stock though because AOSP camera sucks compared to LG's. That and weird screen problems.


Thankfully there's xposed for things like hoover from PA.

It is possible to get the LG camera working on AOSP roms, but what problems are you having with the screen?
>>
>>42929517
None specific. I just hear that other ROMs (PA specifically) have problems with burn in. I'm almost positive it's fixed but I really don't feel like taking the chance when I have most of the features.

Would like to use stock rom with correct sources on my S4, but theres like 1GB of bloat and knox shit causing restarts and stuff if you root, but AOSP can't even get camera sources right, video fps sucks anal.
>>
>>42929674
What are your options?

Usually the newest version is the one you'd want to go for unless you have some specific reason to avoid it

>>42933540
The problem is root only now is that my phone is currently not rooted and running the stock 4.4.2 from samsung. Mine is the gt-i9505 which i bought directly from samsung store so i don't think it would have the locked bootloader problem as with the carrier variants. I'll look into the towelroot to see if that works and then give titanium a shot.
>>
>>42933596
Cyanogenmod is no good on the s4? If the stock room with root is acting funny have you tried a stock based ROM? That could be the mix of modification and stability type
you're looking for, try android development for the S4 on XDA forums
>>
>>42929016
I can feel to that man

>>42933607
Damn, how much screen in time do you get on both of those?
>>
>>42933612
Might try GE rom again because sources, but they are cooked so amateurly that it fucking kills me, missings libs, double .apk's on system folder, "VIRGINROM" planted on "info" tab.
>>42933670
I'm on CM11 right now, its pretty good, but theres 2 things i miss from Stock, working equalizer and working camera. Might try again those stock based ROM's, tried once and it was horrible experience. Maybe i need to try few more.
>>
>>42933717
It might seem funny, but it's little over 15 minutes of screen time. The older Note could get 4h maximum when it was my primary device, now just using it for calling and messaging.

The Note 3 can get around 8h with 4G on, with wifi only it's like 9h and watching videos with mobile data turned off can get me like 11 hours.

>>42933844
The Cyanogenmod team has revamped the theming engine of CM11, it now allows for mixing of different theme assets like boot animations, styles, fonts, wallpapers, icons, and lock screen wallpapers. Theme developers can now theme quite a bit more of the GUI. It also supports legacy themes from the old T-Mobile theme chooser.

As for themes you can find a lot of them for free here, there's even several that cost money in the play store that you can download free of charge.
