Hi guys!
I've succefully ported CM12.1 to Galaxy S4 Value Edition (GT-I9515).
I strongly recommend to perform a backup of your current rom before installation.

To all people - do not try to update rom manually with jfltexx nightlies - i9515 is jfvelte!
Valid updates are only in my threads (at least for now).

Remember - after every update you should wipe your cache and dalvik cache.

Working:
  • bluetooth
  • wifi
  • nfc
  • camera
  • RIL
  • IR
  • sensors
  • portable wifi hotspot
  • wifi 5GHz
  • MHL
Not working:

Known issues:
  • Last second of whatsapp messages is cutted Solved!
  • Possible issues with bluetooth headsets Solved!

I've got E:Error executing updater binary in zip
any one knows how to fix it ?
I did factory reset and wipe /system

edit: False alarm. I had to install latest TWRP and I did wipe of system,data,dalvic,cache etc... everything is fine now :)

OK guys. I proved this rom on my 9515l (Latin version) and its working and I find it really smooth. It's awesome and the only trouble I've found is a little battery drain

Hi guys!
I've succefully ported CM12.1 to Galaxy S4 Value Edition (GT-I9515).
I strongly recommend to perform a backup of your current rom before installation.

To people with sound issues during phone calls: try changing your baseband to different version, even the one from 4.4.2 ROM and preferably from your's network operator's ROM version - for example i have no sound issues on baseband taken from last PLAY (my network operator) 4.4.2 - I9515XXU1ANH5.

Working:
  • bluetooth
  • wifi
  • nfc
  • camera
  • RIL
  • IR
  • sensors
Not working:
  • portable wifi hotspot
  • ?

I have the 9515l and when I call, I hear the sound noises with cm 12.1. But the fix you showed is only for 9515, is there anyway I can fix my 9515l?

As i thought. anyway what baseband are you using now?

I have the I9515LUBU1BOC4 which is the one that came after flashing cm 12.1. I tried the 9515 baseband but, as I told you before, I couldn't and I don't know how to try flashing other baseband, so I haven't try anything else.
