For this week’s ROM of the week for AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505, check out BobCat ROM.
Based on GT-i9505 firmware, BobCat ROM brings you a custom theme with lots of customization.

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.)
Wicked ROM version 4 is out now and you can now install this ROM on AT&T, T-Mobile, GT-i9505, and Sprint Galaxy S4s. (I’ve tested all of them working fine 100%)
Google has finally released the Google Play Edition of Galaxy S4 last week and you are in luck because developers has already ported as a custom ROM for most of the Galaxy S4 models including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, and GT-i9505. (GT-i9500 users will have to wait a bit longer)
For those of you who want to turn your Galaxy S4 into a Google Phone (that’s going to be released soon), you can try the latest PACMan ROM. Currently PACMan ROM is available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, and GT-i9505 Qualcomm variants.What is PACMan ROM?
For those of you who don’t know, PACMan ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) featuring a mix of 3 ROMs: CyanogenMod 10.1, AOKP, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs. It’s basically a “hybrid” ROM that brings you the best of all three ROMs into one ROM.
For those of you who need App2SD and call recording (today not tomorrow), there is a ROM called WanamLite you can flash now that does just that for GT-i9505, AT&T SGH-i337, T-Mobile SGH-M919, and Canadian SGH-i337M series.
We featured WanamLite for GT-i9500 couple weeks back and now the developer Wanam has made a similar version for the GT-i9505.
Need call recording? Don’t like TouchWiz and bloatware? Want some UI customization? Need support for all languages?
If you’ve answered yes to all of these questions, check out the FoxHound ROM for Galaxy S4!
Based on GT-i9505 base, the FoxHound ROM can be installed on GT-i9505, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Canadian Galaxy S4 smartphones. (For T-Mobile, you will lose wifi-calling!)
If you are looking for a good TouchWiz Android 4.2.2 ROM with absence of Samsung bloatware and faster performance/longer battery life, definitely check out Wicked ROM for T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919.
You can also install this ROM on GT-i9505, AT&T Galaxy S4 SGH-i337, or Canadian Galaxy S4 SGH-i337M.
For those of you with Sprint SPH-L720 or GT-i9505 Galaxy S4, you are in luck as ported versions of AOKP ROM is available for each of your devices.
If you don’t know what AOKP ROM is, it’s an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) along with added UI customization and more.
