I'm taking a look at what's available. So far the most straightforward upgrade methods haven't worked despite the newer kernel. I'm now trying to rebuild the rom from scratch, so don't be surprised if the upgrade requires a factory reset. There's no telling that this'll even work at all with lollipop.

Hey that's great to hear regardless! I'm glad you're looking into this for all of us. If you need help with anything let me know, I have a Verizon S4 running the ROM you made for 4.4.4, so I'm unsure if it'll help any with what you're doing with the AT&T S4, but if you can think of anything don't hesitate to ask me!

Not looking good, none of the methods I've tried so far have even given me a boot animation

That's a bummer to hear so far, but I'm staying hopeful! You were able to do it once before, so I wouldn't be surprised if you pulled some magic out of your sleeve for this one!

Due to the way that Lollipop boots, I would bet that the aboot for lollipop is necessary...

Either way, don't expect anything until jmsq pops in himself. Then you won't be disappointed either way

There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking. While demanding is a different story, however, that's not what he did. It was a simple question.

But if I were to add my 2 cents, I'd say that it probably wouldn't be possible for jmsq to give us a safestrap/flashfire-able GPE Lollipop ROM with what he has now. Different kernels, different problems to overcome. If I were a betting man, I'd say he'd have to start about 80% from scratch.

Never said there was any issues with asking, and I wasn't being condescending in my response. Just saying that you shouldn't expect it like it will automatically happen, as there are many obstacles in the way like you said. There was a bit of an attempt to start from scratch with a Cyanogen port that I tested in these forums here, but we didn't have the knowledge to get it up and running fully.
