You mean unpack the ROM.zip, change a script/txt file and repack again this is not a problem -
assuming zipping of the changed ROM isn´t requiring any specific process - no problem

Here is the process;

Extract the attached updater-script.

  • Use 7zip.
  • Right click on the rom zip and "open archive" with 7zip.
  • Go to META-INF/com/google/android/ and highlight "updater-script".
  • Use 7zip delete button to delete it.
  • Now drag the new updater-script into the open folder to replace the one you just deleted.
  • Now arrow back up to you get to the Rom zip file. With it highlighted in 7zip press the test button to check for errors. If none then its good to go but do a nandroid backup first as I haven't tested the script.


Only do it if you feel confident but its really quite easy.

I've tried twice to install v10.5 (black). Installation succeeds but there's a problem with unlocking the sim card: The number pad for entering the sim pin is visible for 1 or 2 seconds only. It then just vanishes and the setup assistant screen (language selection etc.) becomes visible. After finishing the setup I'm not able to make calls as the phone/sim is not registered to the network - as it has not been unlocked before. I've exactly followed the installation instructions (tried it twice, as stated above). Now back on v10.3 and waiting for other users to report success or similar problems after installing v10.5 (black).

Its probably due to the Galaxy S4 Lockscreen app. Try delete it from data/app of the ROM zip file before you flash. Follow my instructions above if you are not sure how

Hi,

Nobody answered my question... :(

"Hi, I have 4.3 with cm10.2 and lt3 kernel. I can't find any philz kernel to this version, but the op says that I can use any version above 5.xxx. so, what should I do? "

I had the same problem. You can go to Applications and open "S4 lock screen" settings and un-tick S4 lock screen box . The number pad appears immediately and you can enter sim pin. You can then tick the S4 lock screen box back in order to enjoy the light effect. Unfortunately after reboot you need to go through this procedure again...unless Not-I helps us with fix ;)

Must be a bug with the app. Search for it on play store and contact the developer

Mediafire went down when my download was at 90% :(
Hopefully I'll be able to resume the download. I have limited data plan ****.

Yup... ******* mediafire.

I'll check it when I get home. I also have limited data and it actually costs me heaps to try and upload for you guys. Not to mention file hosting costs :(

    • You can used Xposed to change battery icons. Use the included ones in Xposed Modules or see this great thread from @kmokhtar79 for more

    • Use XBlast to change status bar icons, notification pulldown (transparency or picture), toggle colors, clock colors, hide notifications, etc... Experiment and find your own favorite settings

    • You will probably need to change lockscreen wallpaper after setup as it seems to change during flash, not sure what I did there, ha ha

    • Rom will need to settle for a few battery cycles before you start talking about battery life etc. ROM may lag a little to start with until it settles

    • I cooked this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works for me. *What works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it as it costs me personally for file hosting.

    NOTES

    • Gallery takes some time to build cache (for Air View) but next time is fine

    • Snote known bugs / facts
      1. Snote is unable to be killed by task manager. To close it down you need to Long Press Home button then swipe it clear from recent applications. This is confirmed to work.
      2. Snote from Note 2 (as included) doesn’t work with finger (Pen only) and pinch to zoom doesn't seem to work either.

    • BATTERY LIFE – I would advise at least run a few cycles before you start talking about it.

    • Media Scanner - If you have Media Scanner drain (common in Jelly Bean) this fix could help

    • This is build is for standard dpi. You are welcome to try 240, 214 etc but I don't support these mods. Meaning I have no time to work on any fixes if you try to change dpi so please don't ask.

    • I cooked this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works for me. *What works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it as it costs me personally for file hosting.

    • You can used Xposed to change battery icons. Use the included ones in Xposed Modules or see this great thread from @kmokhtar79 for more

    • Use XBlast to change status bar icons, notification pulldown (transparency or picture), toggle colors, clock colors, hide notifications, etc... Experiment and find your own favorite settings

    • You will probably need to change lockscreen wallpaper after setup as it seems to change during flash, not sure what I did there, ha ha

    • Rom will need to settle for a few battery cycles before you start talking about battery life etc. ROM may lag a little to start with until it settles

    • I cooked this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works for me. *What works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it as it costs me personally for file hosting.

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR DEVICE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO FLASH THIS ROM OR ANY OF THE ATTACHED MODS THEN THAT IS ENTIRELY YOUR CHOICE IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG.

    Sweet ROM V10.5 WHITE LT9

    Sweet ROM V10.5 WHITE LT9 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 *

    For this version I have gone WHITE. If you don’t like the theme then don’t flash it and stick to the very stable and in demand V10 which had been downloaded more than 25,000 times. I have included essential mods but kept the rom lighter so users are free to add their own sound enhancements, themes etc.

    NOTES


    • SNote widgets are already set on home screens on TW launcher. They can be moved around the home screens by long press then move to screen of choice. If you delete them and then try put them up again from widget drawer they will now be wrong size. Sorry this is the best work around I have at the moment.
      If you use the installed Xperia Launcher the widgets will be the right size.

      Please note Snote may stay open in task manager/ active applications until you reboot. This is a known bug. FIXED BY THIS METHOD HERE

    • If you get SVoice "Can't get to network" error then flash fix above. This will remove S4 Svoice and replace with working one from S3.

    • Gallery takes some time to build cache (for Air View) but next time is fine

    • You may need to open SuperSU and update binaries to gain full root

    • BATTERY LIFE – I would advise at least run a few cycles before you start talking about it. You can using Pimp My Rom (or similar) from the Play Store to try your own tweaks

    • Media Scanner - If you have Media Scanner drain (common in Jelly Bean) this fix could help

    • BOOTLOADER - I haven't included the new Bootloader in this ROM. If you would like to flash it it is available HERE thanks to eybee1970. I have not flashed the new Bootloader myself and have not had any bootloop issues but thats not to say that will be the same for you. I am adopting a wait and see approach to it. What you do is up to you.

    • This is build is for standard dpi. You are welcome to try 240, 214 etc but I don't support these mods. Meaning I have no time to work on any fixes if you try to change dpi so please don't ask.
