Default Roms

Just so everyone knows, Tmobiles roms for gs4 work fine on this. Ive tried Death Star & Slim Bean v.7 & both work flawlessly.
Death Star is a themed touchwiz based rom thats absolutely badass , love it!

I installed Infamous v4 which is a Touchwiz based rom that includes 3minit framework so that you can theme and customize your way. Not over the top and gaudy looking like some roms imo.

Download the rom from the last download folder. The one that says v4.0. Also read the directions. Youll need the 3minit app v3.1, dont dowload the one from playstore as the directions say cause its been updated to v3.2 and wont work. If you want v3.1 pm me.

I installed Infamous V4, my GPU does not have the 487 MHz option as Jamison suggest, just let you put 360MHz or 600MHz. WiFi doesn't stick after reboot (have to log in again at every reboot) Antutu, Benchmark give me less score than with stock, battery temp increased 20 degrees in 10 minutes. Revert to stock ASAP.

Sorry, I cant confirm most of this.

I dont typically use overclocking features and didnt on this rom, so idk. I havent used wifi yet, so haven't experienced an issue here. Im gonna mess around with this stuff and see if I can replicate.

Also, I dont put much faith in benchmarking apps like Antutu. Deodexing alone can make a rom a bit slower...the tradeoff is that you can mod and theme when the rom is deodexed. If speed is your thing then cm10 or aosp is the way to go.

Lastly, batteries get hot sometimes its a non issue really.

Maybe someone else can post their experience with this rom.

Go back to your back up. Reboot, clean Dalvik and Cache and reinstall again.

R u sure its a bootloop? Sometimes boot takes a while with these roms. Also, did you wipe data as well? Its always best to start from scratch with roms.

Lots of help here...I like to see that

Too lazy tired to compile one myself...
granpaw is taking a nap now...typing uses too much energy...seeya kids...be a good boy and make granpaw a rom with wifi hotspot baked in with exFat 64 gb sdcard support now willya? (stock or any variation with 4G LTE)....
If granpaw knows how to bake a rom, then granpaw should bake one The kids love it when he bakes.

It be nice to have a home cooked rom with our specific firmware. Besides, everyone knows granpaw gets up mad early in the morning, do it before the kiddies get up lol

Yeah. Its a crime GTA PC users have to wait.
My rotten son wants me to pre-order for him on his x360 or PSwhatever# it is now...but I'm feeling spiteful.
I bought the 5 dollar Amazon Android app GTA Vice City- for my phone- but I think it only will work on my Kindle Fire 7" HD.... and they keep playing the GTA 5 commercial on tv everywhere -to irk me....
Only good news is- Arsenio Hall Show is back on tonight in Philly on PHL17 havent watched his show since early 90s.... Be good to see him and the Posse 2.0 back on TV again... wonder who his guests will be...

Roms- Infamous and Deathstalker -both gave me bootloops....

I want a stock metro rom rooted or unrooted to make like a chef-in my droid kitchen...
and all the backups etc... are stuck in some mega upload cloud- that doesnt work even when you register...or some similar cloud storage fiasco....

anyone have a link to a clean NON TMO- branded stock Metro Rom for the GS4? from a decent source... where you hit the download button and something actually downloads?
Anyone?

Lmao...

Arsenio Hall is back hu? Thats cool. I used to watch him too back in the day...unfortunately for Arsenio, its all about the Daily Show and Colbert Report for me now. I'm assuming they're gonna be on in the same 11:00 time slot.

No NON TMO branded stock rom for the our S4 exist yet. All flashable roms that work for our S4 are currently from other phones. If its important to have a Metro brand rom then just stick to stock for now. There are mods like Xposed that let you turn your stock rom into a sort of custom rom. The Wanam module does what alot of these custom roms do but for your stock Metro system.

Personally, I've been using Infamous exclusively and only boot looped the first time i flashed because i forgot to wipe data, so its odd that you bootlooped with both roms. The download area for Infamous can be difficult to find as the link wont work from within tapatalk. When you go to their XDA site with tapatalk and click the green download button it just pops up the green button image and nothing more...its supposed to take you to another forum that has the download link. Instead, use a PC browser to download or use web view within tapatalk. Theres also Wicked rom, but that is made by the same dev as Infamous and probably uses the same base.

Heres the link for Infamous rom
http://www.infamousdevelopment.com/index.php?topic=7.msg11#msg11

Click on the green folder and pick the version you want. Most recent is v6 but it requires you to purchase the 3minit app from playstore for 2 bucks. If you want to go the free route then v4 is for you. Please follow the directions!!!!!

Then how about a backup of a rooted or unrooted fresh Metro Touchwiz... fresh from the store...
(Infamous downloaded- I always wipe everything to start....
but all I get is bootloop...with infamous logo face- then phone shuts off then on-and the whole thing starts over again.. and again.
I've wiped the cache and dalvik after installation...
It just doesn't work on my phone... I'm cool with that. I just need a fresh copy of Metro Touchwiz...with nothing on it... that I can restore with clockwork mod (touch version)... and where to put it... remember cwm recovery touch- doesnt recognize my 64 gb sdcard....

Yea it sucks. Mostly its the various free file hosts limiting the speed and Its not just in this forum. It is what it is.
