SlimKat Stable 3.0

slimroms kitkat  

We are proud to announce the first stable release of SlimKat (build3.0). We would like to thank you for the testing you have done on the weekly builds. This testing laid the foundation for this release.



It is very important that you follow the installation instructions (especially the part about wiping/formatting system). If you don't, you will have issues, and there will be no one able to help you out. As well read our FAQ's to get your questions covered.

We have started on the TRDS (The Real Dark Slim) and some compatible apps are included in the release so be sure to update Gapps.

Additional notes:
There are devices which will not receive a stable release but instead a weekly. These devices are: all g2 (d800, d801, d802, vs980, ls980) and p700.
