PORT of Google Play Edition Kit Kat 4.4.2 or 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 for the JFLTESPR/SPH-L720 Sprint Galaxy S4!


Hey guys,
This is the initial release of a work in progress. The is a port from the i9505 build of Google Play Edition Kit Kat 4.4.2 (ML4 Base from T-Mobile for RLS1-4 and RLS5+ is VZW based). The newest builds are GPE 4.4.3 and are VZW based due to compatibility and modded for Sprint. The original dev is Danvdh (dev for tmo/verizon version and where this port came from) and his post can be here :http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2539361 and his VZW build can be found here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2643031. I borrowed some build.prop edits from B-dubz25 (dev for GPE 4.2.2 for jfltespr) and his post can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2345386.


Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you brick your phone, this works on mine, it may not work on yours.

Instructions:
0. BACK UP! BACK UP EVERYTHING!
1. Download and put on SD (external or internal)
2. Boot into recovery (I use TWRP 2.7.0.1)
3. Do factory reset and wipe system under advanced wipe (may not be required but I did)
4.a. Install Rom
4.b. Install add-ons (optional)
5. Reboot & Enjoy
6. Type APNs for data (no longer needed)

See Post 2 for downloads & changelog & APN Info
See Post 3 for add ons
See Post 4 for screenshots

Thank yous:
Danvdh for permission to attempt to port his rom and for his rom files (RLS1-4 was T-Mobile based, RLS5+ is VZW based)
B-dubz25 for some build.prop edits and borrowed telephony-common.jar from his 4.2.2 GPE build
Ktoonsez (his kernel was originally built in)
Cyanogenmod for more build.prop, AOSP browser, apn info, cLock widget
jds3118 for build.prop edits, some apks, and stock gpe boot.img & kernel modules
jds3118, parkourkid93, thedylantula, and pclov3r for testing since I no longer have Sprint or my GS4
theheathen for APN help
Sac23 for working apn-config.xml and some build.prop entries
mrvirginia for stock i9505G kernel
rovo89 for Xposed
C3C076 for Gravitybox
Google for making a GPE S4
Monster Energy for keeping me awake half the night to work on this
You all for your patience and continued support
And finally, My wife for putting up with my obsession to learn this
*If I missed someone, PM me and I will correct this!*
All of you for downloading, installing, and providing your feedback.

Note: It will fail the *22899 call, let it continue. Wait a minute or two on the mobile activation data screen (or once you see 1X, 3G, LTE) you can exit out of it.
If you have signal, but no data...go into the "Access Point Names" settings in More Settings and click the LTE APN. If that doesn't work, toggle airplane mode. If that doesn't work, reboot.
If your 3G/4G Data drops, toggle airplane mode on&off to reconnect

As of right now, only TWRP is supported. Please use the latest TWRP to flash. Do a factory reset, wipe system, and wipe cache/dalvik cache again to be safe!
