For this week’s AT&T Galaxy S4 ROM of the week, check out the latest Deadly Venom ROM for AT&T Galaxy S4 Android smartphone.
Packing the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Deadly Venom ROM gives you the latest KitKat OS in high Venom style, giving you a deadly Venom theme all over.
Brought to you by XDA user Venom0642, Deadly Venom ROM is certainly a work of art (that I have been following since HTC Evo days), giving you a stable custom ROM that’s fast and comes with much better battery life over stock KitKat firmware.
Inside Venom ROM, you will find ZERO bloatware/Knox, optimized file system/performance improvements, and more. Some notable features include native call recording, Venom wallpapers, hacked WiFi hotspot, and some more.
If you are looking for a highly-optimized version of the original Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware along with more features and speed, definitely give the Deadly Venom ROM a test drive this week(end) and do let me know how much you like it!

What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
How to Install Custom ROMs
First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.
Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!
