UPDATE

Android 4.2.2 v6

Working: All with amazing battery life
Not working: Google Wallet (force close)

Again, not my work, just helping the community!

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2341794

Same setup - should work on T-MO.

Just an update about the new 4.3 GPe: External SD Card is readable when you plug it into your PC. The camera however still does not read the SD card. All else is still functioning.Version 4.3 will break root! All versions of SU currently do not work with 4.3. Just keep that in mind.

You can flash this over your current 4.2.2 Google Edition. If you're coming from TW, do a complete wipe, then flash. Thanks

No - I did not grab the system dump myself
Yes - I have tested this for the TMO variant and it's fully functioning

I did create a Youtube Video on how to install the Google Edition S4. Check it out!

Althought it's not a ROM built from scratch or a project of any kind, it is a rom all in itself straight from the S4 GE

(Updated Link) - Thanks to luckyduck69 for posting a new mirror. Previous Link crashed XD.
If you're interested in the GE (VERSION 4.2.2), download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/5n...edition-bg.zip

As always, make a backup, wipe, then flash.

Enjoy!

Installed using TWRP 2.5.0.2.
Was notified Root was not installed, told TWRP to install it for me.

So far, seems fine! I miss the "long press back to kill app" feature, but I can live without it as I play with this ROM.

Thanks for the link! After flashing this ROM will all software/firmware on the phone be identical to that on the GPe handset? Or are there any other bits that aren't contained in the ROM?

I'm wondering that too. This is stable? Wipe system/data/cache and flash?

Getting my T-Mo S4 in today. I'm curious to hear about how good this rom is. Need to root my phone first though
