For what it's worth, I would not, and I haven't read anything beyond the first post. It's not made for your phone. You become a test pilot, although I suspect some have had success with it.

No one could have success with it it's based on a different kernel

Not sure yet lol bought this off a friend who needed the money. It's pretty cool but there's no development for it. I might keep the s4 for roms.

That's what scares me lol. It has a 3300mah stock battery and it has pogo pins on the back so you can connect a flip case they sell that has a 1200mah battery built in. So 4500mah is pretty good but it doesn't beat the piece of mind of having a few charged batteries ready to go.
