Hi guys,

This is my ROM for the Google Edition ROM for the Galaxy S4 (should work on most variants as long as they have the same hardware as i9505) that I have built from the Android 4.3 zip which was uploaded. I have deodexed, zipaligned, added SU (the app is there but root isn't currently working) and also added the boot animation so it's working quite well.

Donations:
Donations are not mandatory however they are greatly appreciated... :)
- Me
- XDA

Special thanks to:
- SamMobile for providing the official zip
- Theshawty for doing the initial deodexing, zipaligning and adding SU on the 4.2.2 ROM

Benchmarks (AnTuTu):
- Stock - 24824
- CM10.1 - 26251
- Google Edition - 26429

Instructions:
1) Root device (suggest using Chainfire's CF-Root)
2) Install a custom recovery (suggest using Philz recovery)
3) Wipe Data/Factory Reset
4) Wipe Dalvik Cache
5) Install Google Edition ROM
6) Reboot

Enjoy!

Here's a short video of the ROM in use (not by me :p)

@HazAnwar: In the second post, what are you referring to with the hover touchscreen? Are you referring to the Samsung feature Air gesture? That is a TW feature and will not be in this GE version or in AOSP. Only in TW.


Also:

Can I incorporate the wifi fix directly into the rom before flashing? The fix linked in post #3, that is.

    Lol got root almost working :eek: it asks and grants root successfully to the apps but the apps hang.. so I think the su binary isn't ready for 4.3 yet

    actually I can't see the point in getting Samsung features enabled when th whole point of the Rom is to get away from samsung roms

    I have tried and tested the IR Blaster (using Smart Remote for Galaxy S4) and I can confirm that it DOES work, I have updated it in the 2nd post as well.
