To God be the glory, my Slim7 Nougat project finally works!

This is a very slimmed down version of Android Nougat, almost a “vanilla” experience with a few tasteful perks! By design, this ROM comes without root for those who wish to have a “pure” version without the entanglements that come with root, but it can also be easily rooted by using chainfire’s SuperSU (see below). In it’s default form, it is perfect for those banking apps, workplaces, and games that require you to have a phone without root. No need for tricks or hacks, all while having the latest and greatest Android on your Samsung Galaxy S4.

If you do decide to use root, then you will be pleasently surprised to know that Substratum and layering works with this ROM. While not every part gets updated, for the most part it functions quite well in my initial testing.

**** This is an UNOFFICIAL ROM. Install at your own risk! ****

Main Features:

-Merged with android-7.1.1_r13
-SlimDim, now with 100% more dimming
-SlimAction, Splits screen action
-SlimRecents, an alternative recents
-Notification log (longpress statusbar header)
-Kill app from notification (long pres app notification)
-Substratum support (if rooted)
-OmniSwitcher built in so the kill function works with or without root.

Be sure to grab it from my Homemade roms page, or jump on XDA here:

You will also need SuperSU if you want it rooted.
SuperSU:

And you can download my kernel from the Homemade Kernel page, or grab it off of XDA:

!!!FIRST BOOT TAKES LONGER THAN 5 EARTH MINUTES TO COMPLETE!!!
!!!IF YOU FLASH SUPERSU, IT WILL REBOOT SEVERAL TIMES DURING INSTALL, THAT IS OKAY!!!

Installation instructions:

-Download ROM, and if desired, SuperSU, AKLU kernel, and gapps, and put them on your phone’s external storage.
-Reboot into recovery mode – TWRP (I personally installed this using 3.0.2-0).
-Backup what you had. (Just to be safe.)
-Wipe. (I personally wipe everything prior to flashing new roms, but at least do the basic wipe.)
-Install Rom.
-Install Gapps. – Optional
–> OPTIONAL – If you want to install SuperSU, let the ROM boot up once first, then go back to TWRP and flash SuperSU zip. If it is stuck in a boot loop continually (it boot loops 1 to 4 times normally) then go back to TWRP and wipe cache and try again.
-Reboot to system and enjoy!

-OPTIONAL – After first boot, then go back to recovery and install the AKLU kernel.
