I'm proud to present you my latest work!
PhoeniX ROM For Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500.
I don't own this device, so I can not test my roms.
I give my roms to testers before and they check & confirm that it works.
As a result, releases will be slower than usual(if you know me from Note II, you probably know that I am pretty fast )
Moreover, I am not responsible for any damaged caused to your device while using my rom.
You can see my success in my Note II rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2060389 .
Devs Pay Attention!!!
You are not allowed to take/kang anything from my ROM without asking for permission from me!!
Taking without a permission will lead to report on you.
Users Pay Attention!!!
