Wow Sammy did a number on the S6, no removable battery and the worst part is no SD card. Did you see the price of a 128gb model? I store a lot of videos on my device and chromecast when away. Been with Sammy since the S2 but have to think again with this one. I have the S4 and the S5 and was planning on getting the S6 and giving up the S4 and using the S5 as the backup. Will have to reconsider now. GF makes the S4 like a S5 and is great.

I agree. The lack of an SD card, the fact that I can't install an extended battery and the fact it looks like the bastard love child of a s5 and iPhone 6 breaks this phone for me.

I'm just hoping LG doesn't screw the pooch with their G4.

Same here, GF makes the S4 look like an s5 and it works perfect. No issues. Stability at it's best

Recently went ahead and rooted this phone. Thanks for all your hard work on the ROM. Solid and smooth build given the state of the boot loader and all. Easy to follow instructions.

Can't say I've heard of that baseband, for curiosity what carrier do you use?

Also, did you flash your kernel modules for your baseband?
It's a baseband for LATAM. .. but I finally solved this issue... If someone else experiences the same try flashing this kernel https://mega.co.nz/#!wdgTgZyY!OgNn_g2lQsEFIJ8GrDLmaBKKG01LaMj_IMBvrswmiqU after flashing the rom... None of the kernel included with the rom worked for my I337M. That kernel also allowed me to run omega rom for the 9505 on my I337M.

losing audio on calls or never having it at all after Google app updates

I was running this Rom on nc1 with safestrap when on May 7 audio suddenly stopped working on my at&t s4 but only while placing or receiving calls. I could still make calls through hangouts as well with no issue. I ended up having to do a clean install of the Rom and it worked again for a day, but Google services updated and I lost the ability to place or receive calls again. I also had to re flash the phone through Odin to get the phone back to a state where I could install any Rom at all and that rolled me back to nb1 which I am currently using now. I am currently able to make and receive calls with audio but only because I had to re flash (all flashes totally clean) earlier today because Google hangouts and the hangouts dialer updated and caused the phone to lose audio on calls again. It is currently working now but I have hangouts completely uninstalled and I am not letting Google update on the phone. Otherwise my phone and the rom are working great. Is anyone else having this issue? Did anyone else resolve this? If so what did you do to keep it resolved short of killing all updates of software owned by Google?
