Hi guys,

This is my ROM for the Google Edition ROM for the Galaxy S4 (should work on most variants as long as they have the same hardware as i9505) that I have built from the Android 4.3 zip which was uploaded. I have deodexed, zipaligned, added SU (the app is there but root isn't currently working) and also added the boot animation so it's working quite well.

Donations:
Donations are not mandatory however they are greatly appreciated...
- Me
- XDA

Special thanks to:
- SamMobile for providing the official zip
- Theshawty for doing the initial deodexing, zipaligning and adding SU on the 4.2.2 ROM

Benchmarks (AnTuTu):
- Stock - 24824
- CM10.1 - 26251
- Google Edition - 26429

Instructions:
1) Root device (suggest using Chainfire's CF-Root)
2) Install a custom recovery (suggest using Philz recovery)
3) Wipe Data/Factory Reset
4) Wipe Dalvik Cache
5) Install Google Edition ROM
6) Reboot

Download:

If you need any help then feel free to ask

Enjoy!

Here's a short video of the ROM in use (not by me )

I prefer sticking with the original GE Kernel and just using a static ip.

I have tried and tested the IR Blaster (using Smart Remote for Galaxy S4) and I can confirm that it DOES work, I have updated it in the 2nd post as well.
