Hassan ROM with Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Galaxy S4 GT-i9500!

hassanrom-galaxys4-gt-i9500

For this week’s Galaxy S4 GT-i9500 ROM of the week, check out Hassan ROM.

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 TouchWiz Samsung firmware, Hassan ROM aims to bring a sleek S5-style interface/UI along with boosted performance and bloatware-free environment.

First, with Hassan ROM, you will be able to experience what’s coming up with the latest Galaxy S5 through its modded S5 UI, S5 icons, and even S5 apps pulled from a real S5 such as S Note, S Translator, and calculator.

Other notable features include support for all languages (including Arabic right-to-left), Bloatware/Knox free, and a slew of root apps including Wanam Xposed (for tweaking your UI), Light Manager, Xposed Torch, USB Mass Storage (for connecting your microSD cards to devices that require USB Mass storage mode such as your car), auto call-recording, App Hider, and some more.

Overall, Hassan ROM is an excellent choice over the stock KitKat Android 4.4.2 firmware, which is much too laggy and filled with bloatware you don’t want. So, if you are still on Jelly Bean or stock KitKat firmware, definitely give this ROM a try this week(end) and let me know what you think!

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!

    Hey Max – Got a Status 7 Error when flashing…Any help

  2. Tele says:

    I have tried wiping everything including cache and Dalvik Cache but I keep getting the same status 7 error.

  3. Tele says:

    Status 7 Error
    OK – I have fixed the problem. The issue was with Philztouch CWM. To get around this, I flashed CWM 6.0.4.5 and the installation of the rom went without problem.
    Cheers.

    Hello
    just installed this ROM, but it is not working. The Phone froze at rebooting; the Samsung logo is on along with the blue led light. The phone has close to 30 minutes like this; had to connect it to avoid battery drain.

    What could I do?

    Thanks.

    • Tele says:

      Try rebooting back into recovery. Then, try re-installing the rom and make sure that it tells you it has successfully installed…If there are any errors, then restore your CWM/TWP backup. If it is a status 7 (which I got initially) ensure you are using the latest version of CWM recovery and try again. It is a really nice and stable rom when you get it loaded!
      Good luck

      • Alex says:

        first of all, thanks for your time 🙂
        i have tried over 10 times re-installing the ROM with the latest recovery (CWM 6.0.4.6), and it always says installation successful at the end. i do not understand what could be going wrong…
        the last thing i’ll try is re-downloading the ROM, hopefully something changes.

        • Tele says:

          Hey Alex – I am not sure what could be wrong…Hopefully re-downloading the rom helped.
          Sometimes I try some roms and they just don’t work…That’s life I guess.
          Cheers.
