*A big thanks to all the people that have donated so far*

This module fixes the random reboots (which are actually System Server crashes) on newer Samsung S4 Kitkat Firmwares like I9505XXUGNF1.

After updating my SGS 4 to I9505XXUGNF1 I like many experienced random crashes which at first glance seem to be reboots of the device. Looking at the logcat I figured out that actually the system server process crashes due to an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. After reading the source code I figured what the problem is and wrote this small module to workaround the crash. My S4 is running without a single crash since.

The module can be found in the XPosed Module Repository.

Are the American firmwares (I have the T-Mo M919 with NB4 fw personally) subject to the same bug?

I would like to know this also. Looking at my logs I see a lot of errors with that and do get reboots often. Though its normally when coming out of sleep (especially when I have updates in Google Play). Guess I can try and update after a few days...

It should do no harm to any Kitkat Rom. It will only have an effect in case of a false parameter value being passed to a certain method. See my blog for technical details. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post links here in the forum but if you search google for the name of the module you will find it.

With 500 downloads as of today and no single message here that it is causing problems you may just try if it works for you I think.
