(Yes, these screenshots are from the HTC One, but it'll be the same on the S4. (I don't have an S4)​


Installation instructions:
-Download the ROM
-Wipe Data and Cache partitions.
-Flash the ROM using ClockworkMod

Optionals (Boot the ROM first before you flash these!):
-Flash Gapps (Use the latest jb 4.2.2 version) - http://goo.im/gapps
-Root it by flashing SuperSU (or whatever your choice of SU manager is) - http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu


Notes:
-I *haven't* tested this because I don't have the device. Beware.
-It is NOT rooted nor does it have Gapps preinstalled.
-There seems to be an issue accessing the external SD, will look into it.

I have successfully downloaded and can't wait to try it out later. Going out now so I cannot install until tonight. I'll give my feedback later! :victory:

Go to the settings app, scroll all the way down until you see a bot that contains 语言. You can change language in there.

    Sorry haven't had time to update this guy. Back at university and just too busy.

    Well I don't have either devices, but at least I have access to a i9500 to test with (however briefly). Please could people stop PMing with port requests. No, I don't have the S4, or the S3, or the N7 (2013), or the Nexus 4, or any of the Notes.
    Its already a HUGE effort by you mate for I9500 , It was really lacking any full new operating system, every ROM available is almost same. Keep the good work going with COLORS OS. Any news on update .
    Regards
