Default S4 Google Edition rom

This is the stock rom for the S4 Google Edition phone that went on sale yesterday.



It is blazing fast. My LTE even works better. I also have about a gig, I think, more free space than on Samsung's stock rom.

If you want to try it,

Download rom
Download ktoonsez's kernel for TouchWiz
Download SuperSu for rooting

Put all 3 zip files on your sd card.

If you don't have a nandroid backup already, make one first.

Wipe everything (see this post if you have TWRP)
Install the rom. Don't reboot
Install the kernel.
Install SuperSU.
Wipe Cache and dalvik and reboot.

Have fun.

Looking at that screen, the fact that it says LTE and not 4G is different than AOSP. Normally you get E for EDGE, H for HSPA, and 4G for LTE. Minor, but different.

That may have something to do with the kernel I'm running, maybe? I don't think this is totally google stock. Photosphere isn't on here. Although the apk is supposed to work for it.

I'm not sure, but I was pretty sure that status bar icons are built into the system.

In not sure. I know it works on the i9505. That's where this first started.

Yeah, I just saw someone else say they didn't have to flash a kernel. You're still rooted too?

I don't think there is somewhere actually on the phone that shows that. If you have the Tmobile S4, then you have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600.

Yes I tried it. Its very fast. If you like all the things that came with the S4 you may not like it though. It doesn't have any of the cool stuff.

If you want to try it, I would suggest the Infamous S4 Google Edition rom. Its probably better put together. You might want to wait a day or two. Android 4.3 has leaked and I expect to see some roms with it real soon.

To expand on this, you are right as it is not completely AOSP, it still has some TW framework remaining as that is how the IR blaster still works, the TW camera may work also but I dont know if anyone has tried it. So not completely vanilla android, but its as close as youll get while keeping the IR blaster etc

That's awesome. Makes me even more excited to upgrade this fall. I'm waiting until my contract expires since I really want the 32 gig GS4. If T-Mobile gets the 32 gig S4 by November, I'll stick with them. If not, I'm getting it from AT&T.

Just wondering how the updates would work. If you're running the stock google edition, would it automatically update or would you need to flash the updated ROM?

This is pretty awesome. I really didn't see anyone reporting any bugs so technically we get to run different firmware on our phone. Right on now the next step is to be able to do that out of the box!

Default Upgrading...

Arghh. My 4.3 upgrade keeps failing. The download comes down automatically (105mb), requests permission to restart and update. It then reboots into recovery, but nothing runs. This is likely because I use TWRP recovery of course. And I have no idea where the download saves to do it manually.
Any ideas?

From what I've read all the updates fail because the google edition recovery is not on the phone. You could try using cf-auto-root to install a stock recovery and see if it will update. I don't know where it stores the update.

I wonder if after you install the rom use triangle away and unroot if you can receive updates from Google? Theres no need to flash the kernel after some reading so it seems you can get the phone to appear stock.

What does that mean it is supposed to function like a nexus device as it carries the same software or am I missing something here?

The key word there was "stock" . No root access
***v2.0 has "root".***

I am also seeing that many people seem to be having problems with the rom - force close random reboots and so on.

I personally thought that the only difference between our phone and the google edition is the recovery - and of course the vanilla android but that is software stuff - the hardware should be almost identical so there should really not be any problems that are not present on the google edition device!
