Your warranty is now void.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

NOTE: In order to keep this thread as smooth as possible, please visit this Q&A thread first and ask there. Thanks to LuigiBull23 for starting the thread and helping to maintain it!


LiquidSmooth is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project.

Dedicated to providing users with smooth, stable and fast ROMs. A Lightweight modified AOSP base, and then add the features you crave!

While we make every effort to test these builds as much as possible, we are not responsible for anything that may happen to your device.

We ask that you do your part to know your device and know how to recover from problems before you flash!

The biggest change with this build is that it is compatible with every single variant of the Galaxy S4 (AT&T, TMo, Sprint, Verizon, etc.)[/B]. The way it does this is by executing a script during flash that identifies your bootloader and loki-patches the boot.img (kernel) if you are on one of the locked bootloader variants (AT&T or Verizon) and, for all others, leaves the kernel alone. It also adds any overlays for your device variant (APN's, etc.). Pretty freaking cool.

So SGS4 users (except for i9500, sorry): come one, come all, and flash this Liquidy goodness without worrying about a status 7 error or the dreaded yellow unauthorized triangle.

To re-iterate, YES you read that correctly...it doesn't matter what variant of the S4 you have, you can flash the zip above without using a custom kernel or updater-script edits.

Got everything all setup and so far everything works great! The mms went right through which is one of the issues I was having previously. Thanks for getting this for us. We really appreciate you!

Glad to hear...data/Mms were working on my phone (ATT), so I was hoping it would be for the other variants as well but I had no way of knowing.

I have never been a big fan of liquid before, but this seems promising. to be honest the whole eliminating the need to have separate variant roms built for each variant is really ingenious! that is the whole reason I am flashing this on my canadian variant, and yes it did boot. I am definitely going to give this a legitimate shot.
