The SlimROM development team has released Slim7 stable build (based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat) for a wide range of devices. This update includes several bug fixes and optimization. Slim7 stable version supported device list includes almost all Nexus devices, many Samsung devices, OnePlus 2, OnePlus 3, several HTC devices and more. However, some devices will get only the beta or nightly build for now.

For your information, Slim7, which is based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat, is the slimmed down version of AOSP (Android open source project) ROM, but at the same time it is a feature rich alternative to all other custom ROMs. Since it supports a wide range of older devices, users can enjoy latest Android version, even if the device manufacturer stop support.



Today’s guide lets you know how to install Slim7 stable build on your Android phone. Note that, since the development team added a correct signature to firmware zip and apk files, users need clean wipe to flash this ROM and any new builds.

Note: Slim7 ROM does not include Google Apps (Gapps), so you need to flash it separately after installing the ROM.

Important: Before installing Slim7 ROM, backup every data you have on your phone. Also, create a Nandroid backup in custom recovery.


a) Unlocked bootloader
