TWRP 2.6 for Galaxy S4! 11

TWRP 2.6 for Galaxy S4!

For those of you using TWRP on your Galaxy S4, please MAKE SURE to update your TWRP recovery to the latest version 2.6 as previous versions do have bugs where custom ROMs may not install correctly.

Older TWRP worked fine but on certain custom ROMs, it would freeze during installation or the custom ROM would not boot causing bootloops.  I found out this is fixed by either using CWM or installing the latest TWRP 2.6.

How to Root for Verizon Galaxy S4 on Build VRUAME7 or AT&T Galaxy S4 on MF3!

For those of you looking for root for Verizon Galaxy S4 on build VRUAME7, it is now available.

UPDATE: This root method also has been verified to work with AT&T Galaxy S4 on MF3!

It involves an external microSD card that must be formatted in exFat format (you can do this easily on Windows by right-clicking and selecting format, you should be able to choose exFat as for format type), download and unzip the script, then copy all the files to your microSD card.

TriForce ROM for Sprint Galaxy S4! [MF9][App2SD]

I know many of you have been e-mailing me to death asking about MF9 update on the Sprint Galaxy S4 SPH-L720. Well, I don’t recommend any OTA updates once you root but wait for custom ROMs such as this TriForce ROM, which comes with the update and also without the bloatware by the same developer UnknownForce who made the Force ROM.

MIUI ROM for Galaxy S4! [GT-i9505/AT&T/T-Mobile/Canadian]

If you are looking for a custom Android 4.2.2 ROM that gives you an entirely different experience than TouchWiz, Google Play Edition, and AOSP, definitely there’s a ROM for that called MIUI ROM.

For those of you new to custom ROMs on Android, MIUI is built by Chinese company Xaiomi, who got their feet wet on Android by making their own skinned version of Android different from everyone else. (Xaiomi did go a step further and now makes Xaiomi phones you can buy in China.)

Crash ROM for Galaxy S4 GT-i9500!

For this week’s GT-i9500 ROM of the week, check out Crash ROM by XDA developer Crash 1976.

I’ve used Crash ROM before on my Galaxy Note 1 and Note 2 and the developer of this ROM is pretty talented to say the least in making some awesome, stable ROMs.

Crash ROM is a bit similar to WanamLite ROM but slightly different.  This version of Crash ROM for the GT-i9500 S4 comes slightly themed in blue along with goodies like Screen-off NFC, Sony Album (much faster than S4 Gallery), lots of wallpapers, CRT-off animation, call button in Contacts, and best of all, no bloatware.
