Default ROM/Radio for unlocked T-mobile s4?

Hello,

Recently my friend gave me a T-mobile S4 which I successfully unlock using this ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2283068 )method. I aslo was able to install Chaos (universal) ROM and seems to be working fine, but I have a few questions.
  • Can I install an ATT ROM/Radio or I need to stick to universal ROMs?
  • Can I lose unlock status if I upgrade the radio?

TIA!

I've never tried ATT ROMs and haven't seen much mention of them in this forum, but I know i9505 ROMs usually work if the developer hasn't put specific device checks in the updater-script. I would guess ATT ROMs will work as well. You may need to flash a T-Mobile kernel though. Radios that are not specific to your device should not be flashed.

Why would you want an ATT Rom or radio? The Tmobile radio package supports more frequencies than the AT&T version. I am currently using my M919 on an AT&T mvno and my girlfriend has the I337 (AT&T S4) so Ive switched sims around on both and could find no significant difference.
