For this week’s Galaxy S4 GT-i9500 ROM of the week, check out Phoenix ROM with latest Android 4.3.
Based on the latest MJ9 Samsung official firmware Android 4.3, Phoenix ROM brings you the best of latest Android 4.3 without all the stuff you need including Knox, which may interfere with your pure Android experience.
For those of you who don’t know, Samsung has started adding Knox security feature on Android 4.3 firmwares, which means you get this useless security features you don’t need and will only annoy you when you use your phone.
Luckily for us custom ROM flashoholics, you don’t have to deal with the crappy new Knox and just install a custom ROM like Phoenix.
Other neat features on Phoenix ROM include native call recording, Wanam Xposed app, Nottach Xposed app, Xposed App Settings, and much more.
Overall, Phoenix ROM seems to be the cleanest custom ROM with Android 4.3 currently so definitely give it a go if you are tired of Samsung bloatware and want to enjoy Android 4.3 to the fullest.

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.
