Information

Let's face it, Android 4.3 is still a great build and you don't need to be on 4.4, there are issues with that ROM too that developers like myself had to work out (camera sucked, distorted volume sounds, SD card permissions, and the list goes on), if you are suffering from reboots, This build is for you and has plenty of goodies to keep you going.

This is the latest and final 4.3 build for the I9505-G Google Edition S4 official from Google/Samsung, It's a very clean base, I have made quite a few optimizations to the ROM and added the tools necessary to give it the features (100% working features that is) of an AOSP ROM, Google edition does not use open source proprietary which mean's Bluetooth, and most importantly the camera will work way better out of the box since Samsung builds this ROM (Full HDR support, 1080p video recording, no green lines on the front cam), This ROM is a perfect daily driver for users who are experiencing reboots on 4.4 due to the modem/bootloader issues on certain phones.

To block the OTA use the "ongoing notification blocker" feature in gravity box provided in this ROM to simply block "Google Service Framework" from showing you OTA and simply ignore it, it will never nag you again

Don't worry, Google Service Framework does not show any other notifications but the OTA so you won't be missing ANYTHING else

Enjoy this very stable 4.3 ROM, It is a very good daily driver
