The usual stuff, Flash at your own risk. I am not responsible if you brick your device, burn your device etc. This ROM might be most suitable for experienced users but everybody is welcome to use it.

Installation Instructions


The first thing to do is to make sure you have the
latest recovery installed.

  -      Note that recommended recovery (CWM, TWRP or Philz) varies from device to device so make sure you check our forums for your device's thread and install the recommended recovery stated in the OP.  To get the latest recovery either use Flashify or ROM installer.

 

1. Flashing SlimRoms coming from another ROM or Android version (e.g. slimbean to slimkat) (Clean flash):

           -   Download latest SlimRoms and latest gapps and put them on your sd card

           -   Boot to recovery

           -   In CWM, do a factory reset, wipe cache and in mounts and storage section format system

           -   In TWRP choose advanced in wipe section and wipe dalvik, cache, system and data

           -   Flash ROM

           -   Flash Gapps

           -  Reboot, setup and enjoy.


2. Updating SlimRoms while on the same Android version (e.g. slimkat to slimkat) without losing data/apps (Dirty flash):

  • Note that we don’t recommend this method as it might subject users to miscellaneous bugs.

           -   Download latest SlimRoms and latest gapps and put them on your sd card
           -   Boot to recovery
           -   In CWM, wipe cache, dalvik and format system in mounts and storage section
           -   In TWRP choose advanced in wipe section and wipe cache, dalvik and system 
           -   Flash ROM
           -   Flash Gapps
           -   Reboot
           -   If you face any problems or bugs do a clean flash before reporting. 

Some Clarification for Slim Bean:

  1. At the moment, just use Slim gapps as there are problems with other gapps atm (incompatible or outdated libs in other actual gapps packages).
  2. If you use TitaniumBackup you need to change in settings your backup/restore path to "legacy"
