Sure enough... Works like a charm. Thanks so much shortbus! I dirty flashed it over imperium and all was well.

You have opened up a new set of awesome ROMs available to us. Now I'm venturing out and trying other i9505 ROMs.

I just installed phoenix and it seems to run well! Its only been installed for an hour but no FCs or errors so far.

Question Compatible?

The thread you posted says it's for "Samsung Galaxy S 4 i9500, i9505, i9505G, i9506" and I'm not sure which one is for Tmo. Those sounds like the international version. Would we able to use those on a Tmo S4?

The OP links to RivalStorm which is a ROM for the i9505 variant. In his post shortbus was pointing out that RivalStorm can be flashed on our m919 devices without many concern for ending up with an expensive paper weight.

To further it, I have now flashed multiple touchwiz roms for the i9505 and have never run into a problem. Sure some things are borked here and there, but those are issues that i9505 owners would likely have as well.

I believe that the reason we have no issues with these roms as compared to other international variants is that our device shares the same processor as the i9505, and there is no carrier specific bloatwear to bork things, whereas, other international variants have outscore processors which would clearly have comparability issues in the OS.

ROMS I have flashed without incident are as follows:
RivalStorm
Imperium
Phoenix
Samy Deluxe, and
YCD

I am presently running Imperium as my daily driver but have also run Phoenix as a daily driver for a long time. Both are excellent s5 ROMS that run flawlessly as far as I have seen.

I have not flashed any GPE ROMS from the i9505 forum as we have quite a few available to us in the m919 android development forum. Moreover I traded in my Nexus 5 for a S4 in part because I was bored with vanilla android, so they don't interest me anyway. I have not flashed any Foreign kernels other than those contained in the i9505 ROMS, though I think it is likely safe to do so since the kernels in the i9505 ROMS cause no issues. Nor have I flashed any M919 kernels into the i9505 ROMS.

Happy flashing!
