I have a SIM unlocked HTC One and I switched to the $70 unlimited everything plan. My LTE is just insane and the Viper ROM has every custom feature that say Pac Man does. ..well almost. ..but retains the Sense bare bones options if you choose them. I am in SoCal which is refarmed so I get 40-50MB download and 18-20 up. I actually have stayed on 4.3 because T Mobile introduced the wifi calling and messaging. I regularly get....well let me pull some screen shots. It's great.


Now I had the Samsung Epic 4G, still have the NS4G AND GNEX on Sprint and I did the Venum Ice ROM on the ET4G and a really blacked out Note 2 ROM but that device is gone (was AT&T)

SO, I am swapping nandroids between Sac's 5.4 and 5.6 with the black and chrome theme but I can't find a stock kernel zip ANYWHERE. I can't adb remount so I can't Odex my ROM'S when I am fully set up. I like the 1/31 KT kernel. I run it with the boot settings 384/1890 but I use his KTOONSERVATIVEQ governor and it sleeps like a baby. I am actually considering going back to stock 4.3 with the MF9 bootloader I was not supposed to touch because of Knox. I seriously want to take that deodexed stock and invert everything, debloat it and not load it with tons of random code and scripts. If anyone used my Venum Ice on the ET4G it was fast, reliable, and nobody ever reported so much as a reboot....that being said, I just got this phone and if I do it there will be an odexed and deodexed build but I can't do it alone. I literally can't get adb mounted I already downloaded the two stock deknoxed builds but I am trying to get on the good side of a kernel dev. I see a lot of possibilities still. I have the CM Focal and stock cam, stock music player, Noozy and some other goodies. If anyone has some them in skills (and likes black/inverted and the 30% more screen time) ....aw man maybe we can get the top TW devs to get together and really do something and have fun.


Anyone can PM me and I respond in 1-2 days max. Well for now I am going to flash today's Euroskank CM build because I am also testing Djdarkknight's KlearKat then BlakKat themes but I am happy to try and get this community helping each other and maybe work together. ..supposedly my Sprint network improvements will be done at month's end ...maybe I will get to see LTE on this phone finally. ..lol. tomorrow I will post side by side comparison pics but I am excited to be here and I like my black S4. End of my 2 am rant
