I'm not sure how big the verizon s4 community is, but I think this should really be updated and kept up to date. There are hints in other threads of people trying out random roms in safestrap, but for new people or people who need their phones to be stable asap, an up to date list would be great.

Personally I have used hyperdrive 17 and eclipse 4.0.2. Both work great, although I'm not a fan of the hyperdrive themes/hub system (they all look outdated and ugly from the bit I've seen) and I've only had eclipse for like 2 days. It does not show contact information when people call me though, and if I can't resolve that I'll probably go try hyperdrive 18.

Also I wanted to try echoe, since it says it ported the s5's super power saving, any experiences with that on safestrap?

Many of the GT-19505 builds are compatible now if you flash the proper modules and/or the jrkruse patch.

I have been using "Empty Galaxy ROM" for some time now, great ROM.

Hyperdrive ROM(s)
all hyperdrive roms since rls10.1 through rls19 can be flashed via safestrap you must just make sure you are flashing the correct rom with the correct base that you are running and modules for locked boot loaders if necessary.

I suggested this to Kennyglass123, who wisely suggested that I put one together.

I started with the official list of TW ROMs, and then added some that I found. I first communicated with most of the devs for these ROMs, and created the list based on their responses.

If you are a dev and your ROM is Safestrap-compatible, and you want your ROM added to the list, please PM me.

SO, here is the current list, with this format for each line:

ROM name [author/maintainer] (notes/link)

Safestrap-compatible ROMs

Bonestock v1.1.4 [andybones] (but only this version)
Eclipse S4 TW Edition v2.0 [nitroglycerine33] (4.2.2 version, not 4.3 yet)
Foxhound Diamond Dogs v3.6 [gigilie] (link)
Hyperdrive RLS13 [sbreen94] (link)
Jelly 'Beans' Build 7 [BeansTown106] (yes, for ME7)
Omega v19 [gigilie] (link)
Stock-Rooted-International MKF Base [jrkruse] (link)

PLEASE NOTE: I'm only reporting what people have told me. Please don't get upset with me if you're having trouble with a particular ROM.

Is there a similar list for the S-5 w/ safestrap?
