    Post Battery charging icon (lightning bolt) remains stuck when charging device

    It's a confirmed Magisk issue - source: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/issues/597 I have tested to see if the phone does actually charge despite the buggy animation behavior and it does. Just best not to charge with the phone off until this is fixed.

    you sure can, unlock your bootloader and install the latest 8.1 Factory Image from July, then relock your bootloader boot up and disable automatic system updates in developer options and hide the OTA notification by long pressing it.

    Post [ROM]【4.4.4】Google Play Edition【JFLTE-GPE】 - Oct 5th, 2018

    The answer is simple, Samsung kernel source, Samsung drivers for all the necessities like WiFI, GPS, Bluetooth & Camera, AOSP source built roms for the s4 are using open source unofficial drivers which work, but not as well. A clear example is HDR in the camera app works flawlessly on this ROM...

    Try the NA release, it comes with a stock kernel HOWEVER some i9505's have a random reboot bug which was fixed with some defconfig edits by Googy, you do not need to install SuperSU on the NA release then but you have no chance at keeping safetynet AND having root.

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so, 4.4.4 was one of the best releases of Android over the years. 5.x sucked, Marshmallow and Nougat were great on my Nexus 6 but sadly Samsung left us on very sub-par Lollipop. Looking back over the years, I really do miss the dark holo themed UI that 4.x...

    4.4.4 wipes the floor with 5.x in terms of performance and battery life. It was not only easier to develop on as opposed to lollipop, but it was better to use too. Even on my Nexus 6 I found 5.x to be a let down. I have since moved on to pixel 2 but I'll always keep the s4. Love this phone.
