| Google Play Edition 5.1 | Untouched | Odexed | LMY47O |
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE FLASHING
I used to own an S4, and untouched ROM's were perfect for me who wanted an experience as close to stock as possible. Other GPE ROM's just didn't fully cater for what I wanted - a ROM as if my phone was a true Google Play Edition device.
@dandroid13 had the perfect ROM, but when he gave up his S4 he couldn't release a new version once 5.1 came out (if it ever came out!), so passed on the details to me. I also no longer have an S4, but thought that there might be a place for an untouched ROM, so here it is.
Important Info: I no longer own an S4 so cannot test this ROM myself. Please flash only if you know exactly what you are doing. I accept no responsibility for bricked devices, loss of data, or anything else that may go wrong during the process. I will try my best to support you, but you have to appreciate I no longer own the device so I might not know. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
This patch fixes a force close in the Settings app when launching the Security area, a crash when uninstalling apps, and enables the gallery app to delete files from the external SD card. If you do not have these issues the patch may not be required but I recommend it is installed.
It doesn't boot!
It will - give it time.
Where is the Google Now Launcher?
Not included - this ROM is as Google and Samsung released - Google Now Launcher is available on the Play Store.
Does anyone get random reboots with this ROM?
Some of you will, some of you won't. It's luck of the draw. If you do get random reboots this is an internal compatibility issue between your handset and the stock kernel. Flash a different kernel.
