Hey everyone! I know that there is still alot of time for the Lollipop 5.0 update for our S4. Nonetheless, here are some of its apps which have been ported. I'm sharing these apps, so enjoy and do not forget to HIT LIKE if this post is usefull!!

APPS


GEL LAUNCHER & SEARCH:
Working perfectly
Download
To get material design, edit system/build.prop and change ro.build.version.codename=REL to ro.build.version.codename=L and reboot phone
KEEP:
Working perfectly
Download
MUSIC:
Now uploaded on Play Store itself.
Download
MESSENGER(SMS):
Working Perfectly
Download
KEYBOARD:
Bug - FC in Landscape view
Download
CALENDAR:
Now the calendar is a bit tricky to install. Some have managed to install it while some can't.
  • I myself installed it by removing all traces of ANY calendar app in my phone by removing system apps through titanium backup such as the stock calendar and any associated file.
  • Try searching manually in system/privapp and system/app.
  • Do not delete SecCalendarProvider.apk and GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk, these are needed for the calendar to work.
  • Lastly restart and install the new calendar app attached in the link below and install it manually.

This is what worked for me, it may not work for you. Some got it installed by just placing it in privapp folder, deleting nothing. A proper fix still needs to be found
Download
GMAIL:
To install this -
  • You need to change the build version in build prop.
  • Delete these files - SecEmail_K.apk, SecExchange.apk, Gmail apk
  • Then put the three apk listed below in system/app.
Gmail
Email
Exchange Services


If I have missed any app do tell me. I will add it asap.

I got into a bootloop after edit the build.prop version. I used an app called Build.Prop editor to make this change. The ROM I'm using is Mahdi 2.9. Clearing caches didn't help so I had to reflash ROM. Anyone has any clue/experience as to why this happens?

Hi,

I tried and here are the results:

Messenger - main functions work. But when I try to attach something to the message body, it FCs.

Keep, Gmail - opens, but FCs. When I replace Google Play Services with 5.0 one it opens without FC, but it tells me I have to update Google Play Services. After the update, Gmail and Keep FCs.

Keyboard - works perfectly, also in Landscape mode.

Google Now - works perfectly.

Regards

Well changing the build prop definitely wasn't the reason. Try to just edit it with an explorer like root explorer.

Well this morning I tried editing it again this time using root explorer. However I got the same results, bootloop. Before I edited the build.prop system was working perfectly fine. So as strange as it is, it seems to be the culprit.

The funny thing is that as far as I can see I already have the material design on the launcher and google Now even though I cannot edit the release codename [emoji54]
