SlimWizz…its touchwiz stripped to the bones..:-)

Introduction- SlimWizz is a minimal Touchwiz stock rom with bloatwares removed. All those apps which i hardly use are kicked out. I have tried to retain max possible stock features and enhance the overall responsiveness of stock rom. 

Purpose: To provide SGN users a minimal stock rom with no bloats while retaining max. possible stock features and enhance overall responsiveness of stock ROM.

Actions: To remove all bloats, replace essential but oversized apps with better and slimmer apps, remove optional files such as languages, ringtones, wallpapers which users should be able to add based on their requirements.

Current state:Touchwiz transformed to SlimWizz @196mb With Responsive, minimal and stock interface and retained all necessary features.

I9003 Custom ROM…ChippyROM_v1.0


I have managed to complete ChippyROM_v1.0 for myself, if you want to try it, please feel free. This is not entirely my work. I have used various files from many developers as base and modified them to suite my taste. So this is not super duper space age ROM.. Just a simple lean and clean rom with descent reflexes to meet my purpose for I 9003. Custom wallpaper gallery and speed tweaks implemented. Its highly stripped down XXKPH Gingerbread ROM of 150 mb as compared to 345 mb of stock ROM. Link to  Release is here ..ChippyROM_v1.0

I have made this ROM primarily from work/office profile point of view where i wanted to keep the distractions to the minimum. GUI required was sleek and responsive. So i have removed many default programs and modified few. I have used darker colors which demand less amount of power so that battery can last longer.I am attaching few screenshots here.Thanks to many SMAARRT_GEEK_ANGELS0x0 who relentlessly putting their efforts to make I9003 device worth using.
