I'm proud to present you my latest work!
PhoeniX ROM For Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505.
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
My rom for S4 I9500: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2328157.
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.

You can choose now tweaks you want to install!
- EXT4 Tweaks:
This mod will turn ON data_writeback for all 3 partitions - system, data and cache. This will drastically improve I/O performance (mostly on write operations) at the expense of file system integrity in certain situations, like unexpected system shutdown. The risk is not extreme, but still bigger then regular. Use this to improve your system performance, but you flash it at your own risk!
