[INFO] Frequently Asked Questions Updated 8/13/2013
Im creating this thread since most phone threads i go to have one, and since this one doesnt, thought i would create one myself.
Q: Which rom should i flash/which rom is the best rom/ etc etc
A: Its completely up to you. there is no single "best" rom. Its all subjective, and all have their pros and cons
Q: Can Someone Port the samsung smart features to aosp/google edition rom x
A: No, smart stay,smart scroll, etc etc rely on the touchwiz framework, which has not been ported (and to be honest, probably never will be)
Q: Well can i use Samsungs Note and calendar apps on aosp/google edition rom x?
A: No, See answer above'
Q: Can i flash the international versions roms?
A:Yes, Refer to this thread
Q: Can i get wifi calling on aosp/google edition rom x/ can i use the wifi calling apks to get wifi calling/(and all other variants of the question)
A: No, wifi calling is a tmobile stock rom feature only, it cannot be used on any other rom except tmobile stock based.
Q: Can we get apps2sd/can someone port apps2sd/where is apps2sd
A :Tmobile seems to be the carrier to receive the update last, so we will not have it untill the official OTA is released. In the mean time, use a i9505 stock based rom
Q: How can i get 3minit on a rom other then jamisons infamous/alpha roms.
A: You cant, for the time being. The developer of 3minit has asked that no one port his work without his consent, and at the moment jamison is the only one with permission.
Q: I bought this phone off craigslist and turned out it had a bad imei (or ESN), what can i do with it
A: That sucks, you can either resell it (you probably wont get what you paid, since it has a bad imei (or ESN) or donate it to a dev for development. If you insist on getting what you paid, you can try to unlock it with instructions in this thread
to try and justify the price for it, just make sure you make it clear that it has a bad imei on tmobile in your selling post. And in the future, use ebay/swappa to buy your phones, so that you have some type of buyers protection for stuff like that.
Q: How do i get paid app x for free?
A: You ask mommy or daddy for money, and hope they pay for it, at no cost to you
Q: Is tmobiles unlimited data plan truly unlimited?
A: yes, yes it is
Q: How to get At&t Lte working on my UNLOCKED tmobile s4?
A: Enter At&ts LTE apn and make sure you have LTE/GSM enabled in your mobile data settings
Q: Can i Repartiton My Phone to get some extra useable space?
A: No, not yet at least. But there are people trying, the problem is getting custom odin tars signed with official samsung keys. But even so, repartitioning is really risky, and have a high chance of bricking.
Q: Can i turn my tmobile s4 into a google play edition one, and get OTA's straight from google
A: No, the tmobile s4 and the google play edition have different partition layouts, which makes accepting a google play edition rom ota a bad idea, unless you like paper weights.
Q: Is there an emulator for console x
A: Install retro arch
if this app doesnt have the emulator, then there probably isnt one
