I couldn't resist it, so I made a custom rom, it's 100% untested as you all know, so I have no idea how it will work out, anyways, It doesn't include a kernel and is not able to brick your S4 in any way..

Features:

broodROM S4 RC1


- Rooted (with Superuser.apk)
- AOSP bootanimation binary
- Custom bootanimation
- Removed videos from /system/media
- Patched hosts file (no adds)
- Patched gps.conf file
- Added init.d support / tweaks
- Fixed build.prop (2 diff density values...)

- Removed crap (in /system/app):

Rom size is 936mb (packed, unpacked 1.3gb), Please no nagging about "essential" apks such as Allshare, because they are not!
No screenshots of course since the device hasn't even released yet.

System dump indicates 'GT-I9500'. So it will only work on the octa based version? Or will it also work for the S600 based version (GT-I9505)?

Maybe there should be a hint somewhere if it is limited to one of these devices.

I have no clue, I think it will work on both versions since the only difference is the CPU which is defined in the kernel and not in the rom, so actually it shouldn't matter (since i haven't included any kernel), we'll see when it's released.

Will this be the case for future roms without kernels?

i dont think this will also work on i9505. coz if thats the case many LTE variant users will have no problems flashing roms made for the international versions. which is not the case in the previous galaxies and notes. (they lose network or 4g)

No, then we will use Getprop. like this:

For international version:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "ja3g" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9500");
package_extract_file("boot_international.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p9");

for other version
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "xxx" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9505");
package_extract_file("boot_oher.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p9");

Hmm ok, that kinda sucks. but some "switch" will probably be made that looks for the version and installs the right modules (or so). if not, rom building will be a lot less fun. Also I think the octa core version will have a much bigger struggle in getting CM/AOSP to work, i mean the quad core (qualcomm) won't be a big problem, but the sensors will be. Anyways, I don't care about having 12 sensors in a phone (which is over the top). I hope to make an CM/AOSP build for the quad core model, because the stock rom is just horrific, not only it's size, but the amount of crap that they addded.

And the most important question:
I know for S4 no yet CWM recovery, so as this install?
Or anybody got root?
Oh well, if there was at least one tucked Stock firmware I would be able to get ROOT to users

p.s. And anybody try load stock recovery, connect to kies:
1. Being on top in Kies tab "tools"
2. Choose it "Firmware update and initialization"
3. Put in departing windows device name GT-I9500 and S / N (written under the battery and the phone settings, the device-state-serial number), not to be confused with the IMEI. ???

It is must get stock rom into Windows 7 - C:/Users/XXXXXXX/AppData/Local/Temp/I9500XXXXXXX.tar.md5
