@friedrich420 Hey, I'm using S4 GT-I9505 BasebandVersion: I9505DXUBMG5, Can I flash this? I haven't rooted my S4 yet is there any different way to root my S4 in order to flash this Rom, thanks for your help!

My friend i really dont want to answer to something i cannot be sure 100%. The baseband version doesn't matter imo, but for the root questions is better to check chainfire's thread for supersu1.51...

You can use every baseband for your phone, baseband have no effect to the Rom :)

Root your device with cf root ( the how to is in the forum ) , flash this Rom and superSu 1.51 , done :)

Yes, you can downgrade , the best way is to make a backup of your current rom and restore it if you need a downgrade.

If you dont use a pin you can flash it without problems yes :)

I know im maybe being out of line, but have you tried my "SuperSonic" Echoe Rom?? Yes is TW, but it's FLYING!! That's the users feedback...

I see all the extra apps from samsung is making it slow I meant all the time they are running in background and my fone only shows free memory like 200mb or 300mb I need less clutter I am planning to flash your google one tonight!

    Hello everyone :) This is what I've been cooking this morning ;) The newest 4.3 Leak for Google Edition S4!!! (Build number: JWR66V.S001.130708).

    The ROM is completely STOCK. It is Pre-Rooted, Deodexed with busybox installed and all .apk's zipaligned.

    The first version is just basic.... Im planning on trying to add as many of the fun and interesting TW features (not just from the S4) and removing as much bloat in later versions... For now let's experiment with this version together ;)

    So far it has only been tested on the International variant of the S4, the GT-I9505.

    DOWNLOAD LINKS:

    https://mega.co.nz/#!3A12lLIL!Vx5f-UBP7_zXm5o4nzjPEA9XmKATXmc-o_psT_HtcCk

    MD5 Sum: A92CC1D83635FBC77571A99BDDB101AF

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Disable SIM PIN (known issue with 4.3)
    2. Download the .zip file from the above link and put it in your SD card
    3. When in recovery, do a clean install (Wipe Data and System)
    4. Flash via Recovery (I suggest Philz Recovery)
    5. After flashing, DON'T PRESS "Yes-Disable Recovery Flash" (because this way you will lose your root)
    6. Reboot and let's play :)

    Thanks and Credits:
    1. karoolus for the leaked odin version of the 4.3 Google Edition Rom (check this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=43722206)
    2. The ONE and ONLY Chainfire for beating Samsung once again and providing us with Root!!! (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2219803, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053)
    3. dsixda's Android Kitchen http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=633246
    4. Everyone here at XDA!!!

    NOTES:
    1. Bugs: As with the initial 4.3 leak there’s some hanging when trying to unlock your SIM card. Solution: remove the pin from your SIM card.

    I would be surprised if anyone browsing this thread doesn't realize that: Flashing this Rom voids your warranty. I am not RESPONSIBLE for anything happening to your phone as a result of you flashing this Rom...

    Wow :( A forgotten paste at the end of the updater script and this is the result... Im very sorry for those who got bootloops!! Im fixing ASAP and re-releasing... Thank you so much for your great search instincts that took you to the updater script.... I got tricked i guess by it working flawlessly on the 2 S4's i tried it.... Oh well, live and learn (and this is a learning experience since this is the 1st cooked Rom i posted...)

    This stupid command line at the end:
    assert(package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img"),
    write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20"),
    delete("/tmp/boot.img"));

    Im really pissed at myself and embarrassed and again I apologize to everyone here at the XDA Community for my mistake!!! :(

    this will not work i have test it im become a status 7.......


    add this line : package_extract_file("boot.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20");

    this is working

    or download this and replace this with your updater-script :)

    your work is good ;) you must not are pissed ....you are a new developer this is normal :)

    Can you use the 4 way reboot mod on this? Thanks for this amazing ROM!

    Thank you for your feedback my friend!! :)
    Unfortunately, the one I had in mind (gharrigton's) didn't work and so far have not been able to make it work on the 4.3...

    However, late last night I accidentally discovered this thread, which seems very likely to work on the Google Edition http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2344979

    Haven't tested it yet though....

    Something off topic: I realized that cooking and posting Roms requires at least 2 phones (of the same kind i mean...) :eek: Right now I have my newly released TW Rom (Echoe Rom v1) on my S4 testing it and what not... I kind of thought that people didn't give a #$#$% for this Rom, given the interest in it, so I kind of put it aside for now.. Ill restore my backup and start "playing" again with this Rom and will at least figure out the extended power menu...

    Users who seem willing to at least try my work are MY ONLY MOTIVATION...

    I managed to download his latest update before it was taken down. Haven't flashed yet because my new i9505 hasn't arrived yet! Should I flash yours instead? What are the advantages of your deodexed rom? Which of your links is the latest version of your rom with the csc issues resolved? Regards Simon

    Deodexed allows you to do theming and stuff like that...
    I would use the latest version with the CSC issue fixed that you have downloaded from the other thread..

    This Rom is as is.. Haven't incorporated the missing csc files to it...
    I have no real feedback about it besides my own, so I m not sure how other people are liking it.... I had no issues on my international GT-I9505 though...

    Not work for me. Flash be ok, but when reboot (after wait first start) i not see bootanimation and restart alone everytime... I see inside updater-script and i not see line command to flash kernel, is normal?
