deadly-venom-rom-att-galaxys4

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!

    Is it rooted ROM? should i root before or after installing this rom?

    • Max Lee says:

      All custom ROMs come rooted unless said otherwise, so yes.

        Didnt work on my phone. After installing the phone just did factory reset and all data was lost. maybe i did something wrong. I just put zip rom on my sd card and apply update from external.

  3. Alex says:

    Didnt work for me. After making nandroid and installing rom it says that i have unauthorized software. I made sure to have the odexed version since my baseband is mdl. any ideas?

  4. Christopher Louis says:

    Is it possible to change the boot logo after installing this?

    As a side note for anyone who’s having trouble installing this:
    I was on the mdl version of firmware.. im not sure how I rooted it, but after installing this it gave me that this is not an authorized at&t firmware… so I had to flash the stock firmware in odin..
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2261573
    that’s the firmware I downloaded… the second mirror worked.
    this made my phone have the mdb firmware and baseband…
    I followed the rooting steps here: http://galaxys4root.com/galaxy-s4-root/how-to-root-galaxy-s4/
    then followed the loki steps here: http://galaxys4root.com/galaxy-s4-root/how-to-install-cwm-recovery-on-att-or-verizon-galaxy-s4-sgh-i337sch-i545/
    there are misspellings and it doesn’t work if you type what max has there.
    follow till the end, then type:
    su
    cd /data/local/tmp
    chmod 755 loki_flash
    ./loki_flash recovery recovery.lok

    then reboot recovery
    install this rom through recovery

    it worked for me
    now to test everything out
    i’ll update soon

  5. Christopher Louis says:

    everything seems to work fine.

    but to be honest, im a bit disappointed with the theme… and I cant seem to find how to change it, if that’s even possible. (aside from next launcher and such)

  6. Christopher Louis says:

    update #2…
    getting serious battery drain running this rom.
    1% every 1 1/2-2 minutes with simple use.
    however the battery life is decent when on standby.
    any idea what could be causing this?
    I had no other apps installed except for what came with the rom.
    since then, I’ve installed swiftkey, titanium backup, hello(sms app) and poweramp…
    no change in battery drain. so I positive its something in the rom itself causing it.

    please help. I honestly just want a stable, bare bones, knox/bloat free, 4.4.2 rom.
