Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can update this version Official 4.4.4 - S4 Google Edition..to the 5.0 lollipop? The phone advises me there is an update to 5.0 it downloads, then reboots into TWRP. however, I don't know where the update/path is located...If anyone can point me the correct location within TWRP will be much appreciated... thank you

    1. Why does touch to focus in HDR mode not working?
    - It's Samsung's fault, because they don't include it into their Google Edition KitKat Rom and the source for that feature isn't available yet. As soon as the source is available it'll be implemented into this Rom.
    2. Why does the SView Cover call acception/decline not working?
    - Same answer as above.​

    3. How can I get battery percentage, reboot menu or expandable volume menu (and other features)?
    - Install Xposed Framwork + Gravitybox. Then check Gravitybox in modules section in Xposed app and click on Download/Update Framework in Xposed App, then reboot. After rebooting you can add/change everything in Gravitybox App.
    4. How can I get Camera app to save pictures directly to SD Card?
    - Install Xposed Framwork + Pictures2SD. Same procedure like in point 4.
    5. Why is ART not working?
    - Uninstall Xposed, since Xposed isn't compatible with ART.​
    6. Who i can Download Mods for this ROM?
