Default Disclaimer

I'm going to attempt to make a one stop shop so newbs don't have to search xda. And to be honest I'm tired of looking at this pitiful s4 forum full of questions and no answers. And not even a finger pointing you all in the right direction. Thus building our phones community and available resources on Android forums.

Disclaimer- All Roms, kernels, modems, mods found in this thread were not created by me and no direct download links will be posted in my OP Sections. You will be directed to the original link usually to XDA. I will do my best to keep this thread current and up to date . ALL HELP QUESTIONS CONCERNING ROM SPECIFIC PROBLEMS OR CONCERNS NEED TO BE PLACED IN A SPERATE THREAD. Someone will help you don't worry

PLEASE READ!!- MYSELF, XDA OR ANDROID FORUMS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BROKEN,BRICKED,MELTING, LOSS OF YOUR JOB DUE TO A MISSED CALL OR TEXT OR EXPLODING DEVICES. ITS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ AND FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND TAKE YOUR OWN PRECAUTIONS. PLEASE ALWAYS KEEP A COPY OF LOKI DOKI, A BACKUP AND A ZIP TO THE RECOVERY YOU MADE THAT BACKUP WITH ON YOUR PHONE/SD CARD

Default Apps 2 check out

Recommended Apps for all My Rooted Compadres. Not all of them will be root specific. But they will be added because myself or other members of AF have determined them to be useful.

There will be NO posting of sideloaded Download links to Paid App Versions in this Thread!! That is called Pirating and is against Forum Rules. Google Playstore links for Paid Apps are ok But i will always try to stick with free versions unless there is no free version and its that useful

Free-

Titanium backup- is a must have for any root user. I would recommend the paid version for the extra features. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup

Dropbox- use it and learn to love it!!!
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dropbox.android

Xposed-


Triangle Away- http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1494114
Removes the yellow triangle you get after rooting


WiFi tether app modded to tether-



Paid-

yeah you can only use safestrap to use a custom ROM. unfortunately mf3 was the first of the otas people wish they didn't take. I am not and was not on it so I don't know everything about it bc I've never had to learn about it.

as far as you being stuck on boot after trying to do the newest ota that is common. I've heard of it happening Allot... for right now force reboot by holding power or pull the battery. then restart and let it sit to see if will boot.. I will go look around and see what you need to do if it doesn't boot
