Wow....you are the man...i read those threads and was shocked and appalled at the comments that people who don't donate make. Please accept my thank you on behalf of the sgs4 community have a wonderful and happy holiday..you well be missed my friend...guess we can all still follow you on twitter

Oh and i like the way you phrased the appreciation for the phone that was bought to dev for us..i hope people let that sink in...the man dev'd without a phone for so long..then you get him one and outsiders treaty him like shit..whitehawk I'm sorry that the outsiders got to you...

Hi Whitehawkx

I really love your amazing and professional work.
I want to ask you a small question, very important to me.

I'm using a Hebrew Right-to-Left tweak that modifies framework.jar, framework-res, libwebcore.so and libandroid.so.
It is a necessity for RTL fix for menus, texts and buttons.
It is working like a charm on Valhalla 1.1 (and actually i had troubles on all other ROMs, with Wifi, BT and GPS, ended up always returning to Valhalla).
Will it be OK on this one as well, or you modified it ? (I never tried other Valhalla versions).

P.S - From what I saw, it is bloated. XDA FBis has posted a KJ6 CWM debloater. will it work on this ROM ?

Thanks very much
for your help!

Itzik.

Thank you very much for this my friend! The thing that has always sucked the most about forums where Dev's post their work is the people that don't understand what it takes. How much time a hobby like this takes. People have come to just expect things, and tend to get down right mean about it when they don't get what they want.

I know that you already know this, some others do to. But if you fall in this category you should be ashamed of yourself! I see Dev's getting shit on by the same community that one day had only good things to say. People act like spoiled little babies. Be happy that you get anything.

Whitehawkx, I will catch you on the Flip side

Why not just make a backup of your current ROM in CWR and then try this one? Of course there are edits... but it may still work fine. Worst case, you restore your backup and have lost nothing.

Regarding debloating.... just go into system/apps and delete them (be careful which ones).... I usually just freeze them using titanium backup so they do not show up and the system thinks they are gone. After they are frozen and I notice no hiccups, then I go delete them.

One more question/comment...It seems that Swype has been removed from the ROM, however all of the other bloatware is still there. Was that intentional?
I've tried reinstalling it through Titanium, but I get force close errors. I greatly prefer Swype (Specifically the version on the SGS4G) over all the others so this may be a deal breaker for me. Bummer

As I said earlier, I do appreciate all your work

Thanks,

I just looked at the video in the second post, and it looks like he is using Swype?

I did not remove 100% of the bloatware but I did remove the absolute crap - Kindle, Amazon, My Account, Mobi tv, etc... The reason I left stuff like the car dock and visual voicemail in is because some ppl still use it. You can delete what you don't like.

The reason I removed swype is cause it sucks. Most ppl prefer the beta so I would recommend that. I will post a flashable for the stock swype later in the OP for those that want it.

For more info on swype please see HERE.

The debloater that FB wrote will work on any GB-based ROM for the SGS4G. All it does is delete the APK files based on your selection, similar to what one would do by hand or with Titanium Backup.
