NEW AOSP / GE ROMS Working for Safestrap 4.4.2:
Heres the latest:as of JULY 21st 2014!
gogolie's port of ECHOE GOOGLE PLAY EDITION V4.4.4 for VERIZON SAFESTRAP
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23578570567717820

gogolie's Official Google Edition 4.4.4 v2 VZW_SAFESTRAP
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23578570567717823

These ROMs contain Xposed and Gravity and Wanam Modules for Xposed these apps are not only nifty for theming or personalization and options but have been known to retrigger wifi into working if a softboot is done from them.
both of the above ROM's should be installed on a clean slate IE Wipe FULLY 1st!
Once wiped install via safestrap and reboot. These are still a bit buggy but hey at least I'm showing you that its possible both of these for sure have working data for VZW in 4g/lte form. If you can help or suggest or bug test and post or PM me any info on helping remove these final bugs we will have a fully working ROM in AOSP/GPE FORM FINALLY NOT JUST SILLY THEMES OVER TOUCHWIZ!!! The more donations I get reguarding specific ROMS is what I tend to spend my time developing so if this is something you'd like to see then you know what to do.

Thanks and enjoy,
gogolie

More ROMS known to work if forced (manual settings or mods to enable data, ect))

Jamal2367's Official Google Edition 4.4.4 works for Safestrap:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2544474
http://www.livewinater.com/mirror/get_file.php?id=30

Install the ROM then once you've booted enter the APN settings under more networks. Enter in the following for APNS:

name: Verizon
mcc="310"
mnc="004"
apn="internet"
type="default,mms,dun"
mmsc="http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms"
protocol="IPV4V6"


name: Verizon Internet"
mcc="310"
mnc="004"
apn="VZWINTERNET"
type="default,dun,supl"
protocol="IPV4V6"
roaming_protocol="IPV4V6"


then be sure and save your APN. Now restart the phone. if 4g doesnt pop on then go back into settings and more networks and search for carrier. once Verizon pops up click it and it should start reading from the APN you have selected or entered. As far as I've gotten but figured you all should know. Only thing thats not working as far as I know (very little time in the ROM itself) is WiFi still. its an issue with our kernel obviously anyone with a patch or fix please let the world know. thx

There is also:
Echoe GE V4 from my friend friedrich420 for 4.4.4

I had this working somewhat as well but not quite as easy to setup as ROM above.

AOSP ROMS WORKING FOR SAFESTRAP ANDROID v4.3- 4.2.2:
Install through Safestrap by restoring these nandroid images. IE UNRAR this file into your TWRP backup folder AKA SafeStrap folder. This is a preview build. Give feedback if you want or just check it out to see it is possible. AOSP in Safestrap. worked for both MK2 and NC2 doesnt work for MJ7. Those of you updating and downgrading please us AP 4.3 for these ROMs. Users please take screenshots and post them in this thread for the OP :) Developers please help me fix the broken wifi.

Installing via Restore for a n00b:
1st enter safestrap and create a backup of your current setup. Next create a backup of your setup but only choose to back up your cache. If your able to name the backup before creating it and name it similar to the ROM you'd like to try do this all with an external sd card.
2nd Pop that SDCARD into the computer that you downloaded the ROM too. Using explorer or similar browse to your twrp/backup/numbered folder/and the folder you did the cache backup to. This folder will contain cache.ext4.win and an .md5 for that file. Unrar all contents of the .rar file for the ROM you want to install into this folder overwrite the cache file.
3rd Put the sdcard back in the phone and in safestrap enter Restore choose the folder name of the new ROM and press restore. This should be restored to a ROM slot if you don't know what your doing avoid stock restore.


Only bug is broken Wifi all else should be fixed. Developer settings to enable unknown resources errors out and needs to be turned on via ADB the code for this would be something like:

Code:
boolean unknownSource = false;
if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT < 3) {
    unknownSource = Settings.System.getInt(getContentResolver(), Settings.System.INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS, 0) == 1;
}
else if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT < 17) {
    unknownSource = Settings.Secure.getInt(getContentResolver(), Settings.Secure.INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS, 0) == 1;
} else {
    unknownSource = Settings.Global.getInt(getContentResolver(), Settings.Global.INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS, 0) == 1;
}
if someones able to whip up a patch for that via a zip flash that'd be awesome

4g works great. Everything else along with it works great as far as I know.

Checked out the illusion rom and there it works alright there are missing apps like the playstore Gmail so you can't add your account and when you activate halo your status bar doesn't display any icons like signal or battery other than those things the themes work and halo works great so it's good to see some asop on our phones

I installed the SlimRom. Very nice... cool to see AOSP 4.2 on my S4 again. i noticed the reboot doesn't work (have to do a battery pull), but I seem to remember all AOSP Roms doing this when I was back on ME7. Also I seem to have no access to my external SD.

I just screwed up my phone trying to install this. I know I did something wrong. I get unable to mount system while trying to restore my stock rom. I;m still able to get into safestrap too.

screenshots? OP? that idiot didnt include any whats this AOSP crap look like?

jk but seriously post your best screenshot for a thank you.

but seriously. overall smooth and fairly fast and responsive at least when compared to a TW rom. the themes and everything look great the original developers did a fine job. phone, messaging ect should all work along with sounds, video everything basically except wifi, including hotspot and the power menu. this is the same on both roms because theyre run off the same base. regular USB tethering does work tho. if your not hearing sound and have upgraded your ap is probably off or not matched with your modem. it was tested on mk2 with mk2 modem all works, and a revert mk2 with 4.4 bootloaders nc2 hlos and nc2&mk2 modem and same results it probably wont work if your AP is still 4.4 you can use my other thread to help you come down

good point i forgot to mention you'll have to enable unknown sources via adb try google for now but the pack you want to flash GAPPS is v4.2.2 on the SlimROM website. if you open your browser when using the rom its the homepage. i'll post links when i get up. finally crashing tho long night of various updates.

thanks CHARLIE for the screenshots! marvelous
& thanks jam and everyone thats flooded my inbox with thank yous too many to respond to, but your welcome!! You guys can also thank the OP and donate cause I need it?

    Help me develop actual functionality for jamals rom. If not the thread should be deleted.

    Sent from my SCH-I545 using XDA Free mobile app

    just because u aren't as adaptable or savy as most users for this specific development thread doesnt mean you should suddenly label yourself a developer.... lol for 1 do you have a clue what your talking about? no. can u follow directions, no. are you working on over 6 ROMS at the same time along with various other side dev projects like me? no. this is a thread meant for encouraging the development of the possibility of GE ROMS for our locked bootloader phones.... before I started this thread with early AOSP 4.22 ROMS for Safestrap it was thought to be impossible to even run these types of ROMs for our phone but you sir are the reason why I'm not jumping at the bit to fix these your ungrateful think u can suddenly do something that thousands o of us working together cant or havent done yet. its both hilarious and offensive I suggest you take your lame attitude back to the general section and with the other n00bs. or keep your comments to yourself please no one finds them helpful at least I dont.

    as promised

    well this is what I came up with so far.... had everything working hopefully it works for others didn't get to test it well yet or even the file... sorry for the delay... Lost power at my house because the friends I was renting to decided to not pay last 2 months...so I'm staying at my girlfriends with just a laptop. Could use the any donations to restore power and continue development. If you like the ROM enough please consider. Thanks!

    full wipe in recovery recommended b4 installing:
    Echoe GPE 4.4.4 VZW for Safestrap v1
    http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23578570567717223

    has superroot and modules baked in no need to flash anything else. then once in the ROM goto settings and enable LTE and pick Verizon Internet from the APNS :)
