    WARNING!

    Flash this ROM to 12 of the 13 Galaxy S4 variants and you run the risk of bricking it as the article does not specify which model of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that this ROM is for!!!

    Instead it stupidly states...

    "Yes! Its true, now any Galaxy S4 user can upgrade their device to Android 4.3 Google Play Edition Jelly Bean ROM"

    The download link within the article actually takes you to the xda developers site for Verizon and appears to only be intended for rooted Verizon, SCH-i545, phones with with custom CWM, (ClockWorkMod), recovery installed.

    Since it's flashed via CWM, I believe it's for phones that are already rooted. Flashing it that way I wouldn't expect it to lose root. However since it's a port from the Google Edition I also wouldn't expect it to be fully functional (yet).

    Am I the only one that thinks this appears REALLY dangerous right now? I like to play around with my phone as much as the next person, but this looks like a cliff-dive!
