    So i just got my tmobile s4 in the mail today it came rooted with cyanogenmod running on it. I got it set up on metro its running good so far wondering if there was anyway to get the samsung remote back im guessing it is removed as part of cyanogenmod. Does anyone know how to get it ack?

    It's not "removed". Cyanogen replaces everything Samsung put in it. (Any ROM replaces the entire ROM that was in there before.) You can have one or he other but unless you know the name of the apk of the app you're looking to "add back", you're going to have a rough time of it.

    I dont believe CM includes the specific software to run the IR Blaster in the phone. Even if you download the proper apk, i dont believe it will work. The app is called WatchOn BTW. Point is, i think theres more to it than that. Also, I believe the software for it may be touchwiz only and needs to be re written for CM. It may have been done for other S4 variant but I haven't seen one. If you have a genuine Tmobile S4, you could always restore the stock touchwiz OS to get the features working.

    Thanks guys. I guess I phrased my question wrong. I was trying to see if anyone knew how to add the watchOn apk. It's OK I just flashed stock back on it I like to mess with stock for a little bit when I get a new phone.
