Big Thanks to Illogic6 for being the Very 1st Person to get Touchwiz Booted to the I9505G post #31 and SamuriHL for solving the Baseband Update Issue and Chainfire

Modem Update : Due to the secure boot loader we cannot flash modems via cwm or any other custom recovery. You MUST update your firmware via Odin

Touchwiz Works with some ROM's like BareBones from the I9505 forum being successfully booted on the I9505G. TW Development is ongoing for the I9505G but with the small partition size some issues exist, and are being researched and worked out.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2405273

11/28/2013 : KitKat initial release this week New Updated Odin Packages and ROM's please check A&D section

DONT FORGET TO THANK THE MEMBERS AND DEVS WORKING HARD ON THE I9505G DEVELOPMENT

07/21/2014: I just wanted to make a note that I still get emails and requests for help and although I am no longer doing any sort of work on the I9505G I will try to help you out if you PM me. PLEASE BIG THANK YOU TO @SamuraiHL he is really the one maintaining everything for I9505G Owners and if you have not thanked him please do. Actually without volunteering him he is your best POC for anything current. I will maintain the thread for organization now and then. ALOHA

Right now just standard kitchen tweaks on 4.3 but I am trying to get the whole device mount points set up in Cygwin and I'm having trouble because when I extract everything and open up the recovery.fstab file with notepad ++ it does not show anything but 0p1 nothing for system, boot & data so I'm lost and need help

One person you might contact is mohan_kr. He has come over to the S4 from the Skyrocket recently. Excellent at working on the ROM's. Sorry I can not be of assistance, but I am not very advanced on Android.

That's what this thread is for though for everyone to get together share information and collaborate.

Chahk's post about mount points and getting other CM/AOSP ROMs working on I9505G deserves its own link:

I've found that very useful. Been able to get every AOSP/CM based ROM to boot by editing the updater-script to match the correct partition.

Has anybody noticed that photos taken with the front facing camera on CM sometimes have green distortion? That was the only bug I've found. Unfortunately, that flared up my phone OCD enough to go back to the 4.3 leak.

Thanks for putting this thread together, OP!

Your Welcome. So I read on the other thread and I know myself and others are looking at how we can port other ROMs specifically touchwiz over to the G the partition as you know is an issue but I think with collaboration can be solved soon.

Keep it coming let's solve problems!

I took a TW ROM and edited the script for our devices. It boots, but the display never kicks on. You get the boot animation sound and it even mounts the storage on my computer.
